Shape: Light
Duration:15 seconds
i watched five objects flying low and fast just east of big rapids mich

this morning at approx 6:25 a.m. i took my dog out. i was standing on the edge of a field next to the property. suddenly, directly east of me, two large bright lights flew over the tops of the tree's approx one mile from me. they were flying horizontal, from north to south, at a very high speed.

a few seconds later two more flew past. they were travelling the same height, speed, and course as the first two. however, the one in front was not a bright glowing object. rather it had a reddish/orange light on the front and one the back. directly behind it was the fourth ufo.

then, after a couple more seconds, one more appeared but instead of flying level above the tree's, it just went up in the air at about 30 degree's and disappeared.

none of these made any sounds. i cannot say exactly how fast they were going but it must have been over 200 mph. given the distance and size of the lighted objects they must all have been at least 100'.

the weather was fairly clear. no other objects in the sky. these were flying over a fairly heavily wooded area.

i stayed outside for about ten minutes just watching but i did not see any more. i took my dog in and grabbed my camera, putting in movie mode, and went back out to the same spot. they did not reappear.

i have walked all through those woods and am very familiar with the area. these were not lights from cars, or airplanes, etc. i have lived here for years and been taking my dog out to the same spot.

given it was the time of the morning that lots of people aregetting up and leaving for work, i would think that somebody else must have seen these things. if so, please file a report. these were spotted on the east side of big rapids, just east of bjornson street.

i also made an online report with mufon.
