Location: Germany (enroute to France),
Shape: Light
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: The object landed
While on leave in the US Army we rented a car and was enroute to Paris.

We stopped along side a lonely road to releive ourselves and saw what we thought was a shooting star except that it came straight down an stopped on the horizon for about 30 seconds and then went straight back up as fast as it came down.

I asked my friend if he saw what I saw as we were both silent during this and he confirmed.

I have never seen anything before or since this.

((NUFORC Note: Source of report indicates that the date of the alleged sighting is approximate.

We copy below our message to the source:


Dear Mr. ((name deleted)),

Thank you very much for the interesting report!

Could you possibly pin down the date of the event, do you think? Do you have records, or receipts, still, that would provide you with some hint as to what the date was?

Also, are you still in touch with the individual who was with you? If so, would he be willing to submit a report, as well, do you know? He might have a better recollection of the date of the incident.

Did you ever see anything but the light? When the object stopped, did you manage to get a look at what was causing the bright light?

I would be grateful for any additional information about the sighting.

Thanks, again!
