Location: Millstone, KY
Shape: Rectangle
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: The object made a sound
Solid black rectangle with rounded edges, no lights, with a very loud noise, moving very slow.

Thursday March 17, 2005 11:07 pm. Millstone, Ky. A Large Black Object, oblong, with rounded corners, and no lights on or coming from the oblect. A large rumbling, (slight vibration) sound coming from the object. The night was very clear, and a sky full of stars. Temp at 33 degrees F.

I was asleep, and a very large explosive sound awakened me. I live in Coal mining country so I know by the sound that this was not a surface or underground mine explosion. The sound was too different. I went outside to see what had caused the noise, and I heard a new sound start. A very loud, large rumbling noise made me look up.

The sound just started, it did not start low and get louder, the sound just started, very loud, and seemed to stay at the same level. A very large, oblong object, seemed to be solid, no wavering around the edges like a cloud or smoke. Shape stayed constant. The sky was full of stars, and that is the only way I could determine the shape of the object.

Their was no light coming from the object, and none of the outside light reflected off the object. I tried to get a picture, but the object was so dark, all of the pictures turned out black. It seemed to be just a little ways above the hill tops, but with the object so dark, an exact height can't be determined.

I can estimate the length to be about 270 feet, approximate based on the width of the hills in front and in back of my house. Width of the object, is a little harder, it seemed to be about 1/3 width of the object as compared to the length.

It was moving very slowly, and I watched for about 3 minutes. The sound continued all the time the object was in sight, then the object was not there, and the sound stopped. There was an object, and then it was just gone. No take off, not waving lights, no anything. The object just was not there. Since is was so dark, I could not tell if the object accelerated upwards, or even if the object moved sideways.

Any ideas as too what this was are very welcomed.
