Shape: Circle
Duration:2 minutes
A few months ago, I was hiking in May sometime, around 8:30 pm, or so (whenever the sun began to set?). I was located down by the big Darby Creek at the main park area (volley ball court, ranger station is located -- between Alkire and st. rt. 70).

While I was enjoying my hike down along the creek, I also just happened to look up in the sky and saw a slow approaching "orange" craft of sorts. It approached from the southwest and directionally moving West toward the Dayton area (my own conclusion). Naturally, I was trying to listen to it since it was a low flying, blurry-orange, circular craft of sorts, The craft was approximately 200-feet above the tree tops. Conversely, however, there was NO SOUND. Speed was that of a commercial jet aircraft descending slowly in altitude just before a landing.

However, this craft just stayed at an even altitude just above the trees. Just as it passed above me it kept flying straight, and then all of a sudden, it decided to ascend rapidly and silently at approximately a 65-degree angle. The notable part was that it reached peak altitude (that of a typical jet) of approximately 37,000 to 40,000 feet within only a 5-second time frame -- YES, SILENTLY AND VERY VERY FAST! This is the first time I've ever seen a craft like this. As it ascended it also had a mysterious after glow in front of it, and directly behind it, hence the glowing effect with orange color. Yes, it more or less freaked me out, but then again I still believe it to be terrestrial in nature (of the earth), and perhaps one of those little-hidden high-tech crafts ingeniously created out of some alien-type technology (area 51 stuff).

I have heard that Dayton's Write-Patterson air force base (about 50 miles away from Darby?) has some underground secrets, maybe that craft was one of them. Yep, this sounds like just another nut-job trying to stir the mystical UFO pot, but I saw what I saw.

I had a friend tell me that it was some small space debris burning up in our atmosphere, but I have to say this was not that. It flew slowly, it had a purpose, and it flew exact and silent. So I looked it up on youtube and low and behold I saw a craft(s) similar to what I saw -- wow. Has anyone else on here ever seen such a craft? I bet someone has. Even if it's a clear night out (which it was when I saw it) it will still appear as though it's in a foggy cloud, hence, you cannot see any specific details other than a round orange shape, no sound, and definitely a flying craft.

Take care.
