Shape: Disk
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Hovering object during a thunder storm and rain.

On the evening of the UFO sighting, my boyfriend and I had just gotten back from picking up a family friend from the airport (We live an hour and a half away, this UFO was NOT a plane). Our family friend had told us all the flights were delayed or canceled because of the thunder storm and severe rain we were having.

While we were standing outside his house in the drive way he saw a really bright light. He said, "Come here and look at this." I was standing where tree branches were blocking my view so I couldn’t see what he was pointing at.

When I stepped closer to where he was standing and looked into the night sky I saw a bright hovering disk (it had a disk like shape but the light surrounding it was rectangle). It was very bright and looked far away, yet the whole craft was brilliantly lit. It emitted a yellow/golden light in color.

We both stood looking at the flying object until it flew straight into the clouds. During the short amount of time we saw the UFO, it maintained the hovering position, not moving anywhere, for about 5 seconds. Then went up a few feet in the air (from our perspective) and back down to the original position. After this the UFO flew straight up into the clouds at a super fast speed. It looked like it disappeared. There were no more lights emitting from the craft.

This is my first encounter with anything to do with UFO’s or aliens. I can’t explain what I saw. I don't know of any kind of aircraft so bright, has the same shape, can maintain a hover thousands of feet in the air, go at a fast speed straight up and all this during a thunder storm.
