|First of all i am a C2C listener for about 15 yrs .((name deleted)) i will just begin on what i saw. I wrote it all down and have gone over it and i can still see it fresh in my mind.Ok here it goes.
Feb.11th, 2009, 5:40 am FTCKY.It was a very very windy morning at least 40 + knots and gusting. It was a typical morning drive to work about 58 miles oneway. On the last part of my drive 3.5 miles from state hwy.SR 79 i turn on Gate 10 road north,which takes me to my hanger at Sabre helicopter airfield.I am an A&P aircraft technician.I work on U.S. Army helicopters, and N.G. helicopters, we modify them so they can go to the Middle East conflict. I have been doing this for about 30 yrs. Ok while i was driving on the back gate road i saw this very bright ball of light on my left or west of the road. This light was just coming up from the trees near a road called Oriental Village. On that road back is a area that has a urban town for the army to train in.It just hung there.....I thought it might be a helicopter with it,s landing light on....But no it was way to bright....plus there was a weather warning out because of the high winds. So nothing should be flying. What happend next convince me that this was not a conventional type of Aircraft.
The ball of light started to move towards the high right NorthWest,as it did i could see the very fast moving clouds by its very bright light, and as it ascended into the clouds they filtered out the brightness and i could see the shape of the object....it was a perfect white ball and i watched it as it slowly faded out of sight. This whole ordeal lasted for about 2 minutes....my truck said 5:42 am.I was about a 1/4 mile from this object and made no sound just the wind beating on my truck. I wonder if Ft. Campbell tower pick this up on radar. Since no other aircraft would be flying. I can not get this image out of my mind.What do i do next.....still shaking. Thank you for what you do.
