Reported: 9/26/2021 2:59:03 PM 14:59
Posted: 10/19/2021
Location: Louisville, KY
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 2 minutes or less
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Cigar shaped object flies across sky in very odd way, before stopping and orienting it's leading end up and accelerating out of sight.

A white or bright silver, cigar shaped object, heading south to north. Object was seen approximately 7 miles south/southeast of Standiford Field airport. It was traveling in a straight line at a high rate of speed as compared to airplanes in the area.

The object, while still moving in a straight line, rotated it's leading end eastwards almost 90 degrees, then rotated back towards the north before rotating towards the west, and then rotating north once again.

At this point the object came to a complete stop. It didn't fall or move at all for about 5 seconds. From my angle it appeared to raise the leading end up. It started to rise slowly then accelerated quickly, straight up and out of sight.

There wasn't any noise to be heard from it at all.

Object witnessed by 46 year old male. Industrial electrician and single dad.
