Shape: Oval
Duration:2 mins
I saw a black oval in the sky surrounded by a streaming light.

I was picking up my son from a baby sitter at around 3:20 am. While i was waiting i looked up into the sky. I noticed a large stream of light drop at an left angle from where i was standing. It was so unusual to me because it only started to shoot down halfway through the atmosphere, and the light was 10 times wider than any shooting star i've ever witnessed. As the object dropped closer toward me i began to panic and tried to open my car as quickly as possible to retrieve my phone which was completely dead. I did not attempt to turn on my car during the sighting for fear of attracting attention to myself although it seemed as if i were being pulled toward the object regardless. I noticed as the object was dropping it had a tail behind it about 7-8 inches long but as it came closer to the surface the light seemed to collapse into it once it came close enough to drop lower than the treeline. At the closest the object Seemed to be about 3-4 inches long and 2 wide so it looked like a huge black oval in the sky surrounded by a white light that looked the same color as clouds. The white light showed through the center of the oval as well so it seemed like an object projected by light until it reached the tree line, then the light seemed to drop into the blackness and disappear all together. The other thing i remembered noticing was the lack of noise. There was no sign the it ever hit the ground but i felt an overwhelming urgency to drive in the direction of where i had last seen it fall. I felt as if it were less than 5 miles away, but i chose not to go because i needed to take my toddler home. I have yet to get over the shock, and am still noticing unusual movement in the skies after 3 am. I can try to send a drawing depicting what i saw, but i was never able to make out the object in full. It did not seem to stop moving, and it feels like once it got close enough to see my mind wiped any other images than the black oval which in itself is amazing because i suppose it means the object was mo! ving faster than light itself.
