A V shaped object with 5-6 "lights" running on either side and a solid mass in the middle flying over Baton Rouge on September 6, 2008.

I was staying with my friend’s house in Baton Rouge, because they were lucky enough to have their electricity restored after hurricane Gustav. I was standing out front of my friends house, for a smoke break, around 10:00 p.m. or 10:30 p.m. (I am not sure of the exact time). It was a very quiet night due to the fact that after hurricane Gustav most of the city doesn’t have power and also we had a curfew that no one should be driving or out cruising starting at 8:00 p.m. The only sound you could hear were the sounds of generators in use. So, the sky was clear, stars visible, but dark, that eerie dark without the glow of street lights and house lights.

I was looking up when I noticed out in the distance what looked like a flock of white birds, in a V formation heading my direction. It caught my attention for how white the birds were. But as they were flying overhead to where I got a better look, I realized they were not birds but rather something I don’t know how to explain. It was a V formation but it was, not necessarily lights spread apart but more like a reflective surface? If it were lights they would just have to be very dim I suppose. Not anything so bright that would have made it stand out in the dark sky. It was probably 1000 ft up, but honestly I could not gauge the distance because I was still trying to figure out what it was I was looking at. Also, noticed that it was a solid mass between the "lights."

It moved at a good pace and made absolutely no sound. After it flew over me and crossed over the neighbor’s house it was gone. I don’t know what I saw but I know it wasn’t an airplane or a helicopter.

I do not wish to speak to anyone or have my name or information published. I am curious to know if there were any stealth bombers flying over but wish to remain anonymous. I am not crazy and not on drugs, just wanted to pass this information on in case it is useful or important to your research. And am hoping I am not the only person to have seen something strange over the skies of Baton Rouge that night.

I am providing my email address if you need confirmation of my account. Thank you.
