|Never have seen anything like it before...or since.
My dad and I were on our way home from watching a movie in Little Rock. It was dark, and the stars were bright. We were driving on Hwy 10 (Cantrell Rd) and were coming up on our turn. And, then we saw it.
It had a circular shape, and there were three lights on the bottom that pointed down (the primary colors) moving in some sort of a pattern. Around the edge of it there were lights that moved counter to the pattern and direction of the big lights. All it did was hover above the house at the intersection of Hwy 10 and Ferndale Cutoff Rd. It continued to hover for about 5 seconds as we slowed to a stop.
Our stopping must have startled it, as it then stopped the colored lights pattern and very quickly took off. It took off and was going faster than my dad's 1978 Cadillac Coup Deville could muster. He told me to buckle my seat belt as he buried the needle until it was no longer visible.
And then it stopped. It stopped so amazingly accurate and sudden that we couldn't do anything but shoot past where it had stopped and was hovering. We turned around and were now headed back towards Little Rock. It flew and flew and we all but lost sight of it until when it changed its path and flew upwards at a swooping 45° angle and was gone.
We drove home in silence. That was 30 years ago. My dad and I have talked about that experience one time only since. By the way...that house had been demolished or something as it's now longer there.
