Location: Paducah, KY
Shape: Light
Duration:4 seconds
Four flashing stobe lights moving quickly in the sky.

From approximately Olivette Church Road and Rte. 60 a light was observed descending at an approximate 10 degree down angle from north to south. The distance and size of the object were not distance due to the speed, however, the light appeared to traverse approximately 3 degrees every second and flash 4 times at each second interval. The light was only observed just a few degrees above the horizon between a building and a tree when the light flew out of sight.

The light was plain white of only moderate intensity but was not accompanied by any other light. What made the light striking was the rapidity with which it seemed to traverse the sky the next time it cycled four flashes. Only three cycles were observed.

It should be noted that there was intense electrical storm activity well to the west and south of the sighting.
