The ship crossed the sky, stopped shot up about a half mile, hovered for a while and changed a multitude of colors and departed with us

At 7:15 p.m. we were heading North on I-75 just south of Cygnet, Ohio, when we saw what appeared to be a meteor coming across the horizon from the east and out of space. It crossed over I-75 heading west, when an explosion or emission of somekind, lit behind it, illuminating the craft. This event, looked not like an explosion proper, but rather orange, yellow and a sparkling gold bolt of lighting with many branches!

At that moment it came to a quick stop but quite a distance from the previous anomalous event. This took all of 5 seconds.

At this point we stopped the vehicle and went for the video camera. We tried to turn it on, but the battery was dead. So we pulled out binoculars we took for the trip and started watching its movements. I pulled out the binoculars and handed them to my friend ((deleted)), and when I turned around to look back at the craft, I saw a flash of white light, and then the ship moved up approximately a half mile. That is where it stayed, until we decided to move in, and then it stayed with the car up to the Cygnet Rd. exit.

At this point, the object was hovering what looked to be a hundred feet above the trees. We turned off onto the Cygnet exit, and turned left onto Cygnet. We pulled the car over on the right hand side of the road, and started to observe the craft, at this point a woman named ((female name deleted)) stopped in front of us and asked us if we saw the previous events.

We exchanged names and numbers and watched the ship hover with the binaculars. She explained that she was on a pizza run, and she had to go, we agreed to meet back at her pizza shop after investigating the "UFO".

At this point it was turning a multitude of colours, including red, blue, green, white, magenta and yellow. It was also dimming and then get brighter. So she departed, and we went in to investigate.

Once we got close enough, we stopped to investigate even more. We observed it again change colours and reduce and increase in size (from dimming, we believe)

All of a sudden, it became an intense red, and Jim l ooked at me and said, "Tim, let's go, I don't like the way that this is looking", and as he said that I said "were going" just then, I looked at the lights in the jeep and they were starting to dim and get brighter and the dim again.

I turned the jeep around and we drove as fast as we could go. We kept a eye on it upon our departure, we went back to the pizza store to meet up with ((female name deleted)). She arrived, we confirmed the story to her friends at the pizza store and then told her what happend.

Afterwards, we left to go and see if the ship was still there. At that point it was gone.

We entered back onto the freeway, and all of a sudden we both developed pain in our abdominal region right below the rib cage. Mine was off the left side, and Jim's was more in the center. Later I looked at my side and it was inflamed and red.
