National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 7/9/1999 21:40 (Entered as : 07/09/99 21:40)
Reported: 7/16/1999 21:46
Posted: 8/10/1999
Location: Stone Mountain, GA
Shape: Light
Duration: 5min
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Blue round object appeared on the southwest side of Stone Mountain,GA then proceeded north, then proceeded west and gained speed and altitude out of sight.

The object was a dot of blue light that almost appeared to be the same type color as blue shade star. It first appeared coming up behind Stone Mountain, (GA) on the southwest side. At first I thought it was a balloon, at some distance because balloons land / take off at a nearby airport. Then the object went up quickly and then changed elevation quickly. When it moved north, it did not move like an airplane or helicopter. It had a smooth but varied motion. Almost a looping type motion. Then it went west, coming directly overhead, with tremendous velocity and gaining altitude until out of site. My wife also saw the object. We were at the Stone Mountain laser show. Everybody was watching the show. I would be interested if you had any other reports. I'd like to emphasize this was not an airplane, a helicopter, balloon, or a stray light from the show. Thanks for taking this report. ((name and contact information deleted))
