Duration:8 seconds
December 04th, 2011 Driving along the highway back to my house with my roommate, we both noticed a flying circular bright light.

First we thought quietly to ourselves, because we thought it was an airplane.

However we realized it was falling at a very controlled rapid speed on a diagonal straight-line decline of a 45-degree angle for 5 to 6 seconds.

I was driving and slowed to witness it and thought secondly to myself, could it have been a shooting star? But having witnessed many shooting stars from my permanent home it wouldn’t have been visible for that long when I was slowing down the car to watch this super bright white object descend.

Afterward it straightened out horizontally for a second or two and then disappeared completely. No more abnormally bright sphere present in the night sky.

My roommate exclaims to me, "Did you see that!" I reply, "Yes, we just saw a UFO!"
