|Round object moving slowly across sky and goes opposite direction in a second
At 8:28 on Thursday night, i was standing on my deck, when i saw some lights coming from the south. At first I wondered why a plane was flying so low and thought it must be a helicopter because it looked round the closer it got.
Then I realized it was not making any noise and was going very slow maybe 80 mph.
As it got closer I could see the bottom of the object and it was round with 12 lights on the outside edge of it. There were 6 rows and each row had 2 lights which were whitish in color.
It was heading straight north, stopped for a second and went straight east and up.
The whole thing lasted about 2 minutes and I am still having a hard time believing what i saw. It's the things that happen to someone else i thought.
I am a bit reluctant to send this but i guess you've heard it all. It sounds crazy i guess. But at the same time i know what i saw.
In case you need to know i do not smoke, drink or do any type of illegal drug.
Maybe I should start lol.
Thanks for your time.
((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the object may have been a model "quadcopter," with LED lights affixed. A worldwide hoax is planned by owners of those radio-controlled craft for about this time in April. PD))
