|A grey oval craft hovering over a hambuger standfor an hour about 200 feet above the light poles with no sound.
was a dark fall evening around 8:00pm in Wayne Michigan.
Many people were gathered at the corner of Wayne and Van Born rd. The community is well populated. I was at my upstairs bedroom.
My brother and I saw an oval shaped object in the sky. It might have been 200 ft above the light poles. It was light gray in color with a red light about a 45-degree angle from the craft. The craft was spinning but in the same place.
No sounds were heard. It hovered over this hamburger stand for at least 50 minutes.
During that time it shined a bright light from the front of the craft down towards the people below. It stayed on about a minute or two. About six times the craft would fly very fast off towards the west. All you could see in the distance would be the red light disappearing. As soon as you turned away to talk to someone, it would fly right back. Each time it went out toward the far distance it would come back just as fast as it left.
It continued to hover over the stand for about 5-10 min each. Then it would fly very far out, and come back again and hover.
After about an hour of this back and forth, it finally went away.
