Shape: Disk
Duration:4 minutes
Saucer object observed close enough to throw stones at in 1996.

I saw the same thing as in this video. I did not see something like the object in this video, I saw the exact same thing! I drove up a hill on 39 connector, 5 miles from Lumpkin westbound. This object was hovering above some pecan trees approx 30' to the right of the highway. It had a bright white light shining to the ground, and all the colorful lights depicted in the video link i've supplied of a like sighting. I cannot express enough, that the object in this video is exactly what myself, and one other friend observed.

I stopped my car, stepped out onto the road, and the object floated directly over us: giving me a clear view of the underside. The object was round, with cylinders extending from the center out to the edges. The cylinders appeared to be spinning, and thermal distortion could be seen under the craft, indicating a heat source. The craft was very quiet. Only as the object was directly overhead could it be heard. The sound was that of a gentle hum. The object was close enough that a rock couldve been thrown to strike the underside. It quickly passed over the trees and into memory.
