Duration:5 minutes
I saw a strange object that was just hovering, appeared to be a plane but planes don't hover.

I was on my way home from work and had just picked up dinner, I live near the new military place out past Muralt’s. I was driving on the old highway and noticed a really bright light. I was just passing the airport and assumed it was just an airplane getting ready to land.

Something was different though, I see airplanes landing all the time since I live so close to the airport. This was really bright and wasn’t moving, and it was at a lower height than what airplanes usually fly. So I drive past crossroads and I see this huge craft. It wasn’t as big as an airplane but it was still a good size. It was right across the highway from Muralt’s where they’re currently doing construction so I thought maybe some people were working late and it was just an extra bright light to help them see.

All I know is that it wasn’t making any noise which is peculiar, and if it was a plane it would have made SOME movement since the first second I saw it. Sometimes airplanes appear not to be moving, but I had first seen this bright light from the airport and it hadn’t moved at all in the next 4 minutes or so of me driving toward it.

No one else seemed to notice or care. I was about to pull over but decided to go home and get my mom. She thought I was full of it and I’m not sure if she believes that stuff. But I got her to come with me, unwillingly of course, and we got back to the place where I had seen it and it wasn’t there. I thought that was weird since it was at a standstill for a whole 5 minutes or so. And who knows, it could have been there before I had seen it too. My mom kind of got quiet, I think she understood that something unusual was going on too.
