Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object emitted other objects
We were on the outskirts of town, just passing the sewage treatment plant, when this object with blinding white light enveloped the car

My ex-husband and I were on the outskirts of town right by the sewage treatment plant. It was pitch black and all of a sudden there was this blinding white light that enveloped the car and I remember being terrified.

The next thing I know we are down the road a good 4 or 5 miles from the plant, I don't remember how we got there, but now we are at the old Oak St bridge. Anyone from that area should remember that old metal bridge, we were going so fast across it we were fishtailing, it had been raining. I know we were both terrified and I looked up at the sky and there were 3 or 4 of them following us all the way thru town.

We finally got to my Aunt & Uncle's house where we were staying the night, I remember being so afraid to look up in the sky, but as we ran into the house I saw them go zip, zip, zip and they were gone. I don't know how else to describe it.

Once inside the house, we immediately started telling the other adults there what we had seen. Of course we were met with jokes and sarcasm. My ex couldn't take the ridicule and so he did an about face and said he really hadn't seen anything. As you can imagine, I was furious with him for not standing up and telling them the truth.

Years later, after we divorced, we met for drinks and he admitted to me that he had seen what I had seen, but could not take the ribbing from the other men in the room.
