Duration:3-4 minutes
GIANT floating 'candle light' moved across sky above Boyne City Michigan around 9pm at night.

I have camping for 29 years in Michigan, a yearly trip with about 10 other families, once a year. On our last night, around 9 pm before the sun fully set, I was frantically called out of my tent by some of our camping group to come witness a UFO.

The UFO looked like a large, wide candle light flying through the sky. It looked to be quite far away, and moving at a fast rate (for how far it appeared to be away). It appeared to be moving from SW to NE. It was only visible to me for about a minute before I lost it behind some trees.

It was unlike anything we had ever seen, some members of my camping group thought it was a plane that had caught fire, until I pointed out that there was no smoke trail, and it didnt seem to be losing altitude at all. We have no clue really, what this could have been, I just figured it needs to be reported, so here we are.

Unfortunately none of us had a camera handy to record it as we were sitting around a group campfire, which is a bit of a bummer. However, the number of witnesses, and the quality of them (HS Principal, School Board Trustee, Psychologists, among other professions), not to mention most of these people (friends of my Parents) I have known since I was born, leads credibility to this sighting.
