Location: Charlivox, MI
Shape: Cigar
Duration:30 seconds
We where setting on the edge of a corn field looking east north east over a meadow calling coyotes. clear night half moon, no clouds.

I heard a fizzle,pop crackle, and saw a very whit intense light flash over us. As if a flash bulb had gone off. The light did not light up area, just bright white in my eyes, as if there was an energy that only hit our optic nerve.

The other two people with me reacted in wonderment to this. as we looked to see what had happened, high in the sky to the east south east we saw a wide, long cigar shaped sliver craft It was uniform from end to end and took up perhaps 20% of the sky . As I watched it I could see sparkles and stars in the reflection of the craft. After20 seconds it uniformly was covered by the night sky. Not end to end or top to bottom. the sky closed over it from top to middle and from bottom to middle. It lasted perhaps. 20 seconds.

I have seen the norther lights on many occasions and do not believe that is what I saw this night.
