October 31st 2000

Name: Heather

Location: Belmont, Michigan

Date: October 31, 2000

Approach Direction: East

Departure Direction: West

Witness Direction: North

Description: I was out Trick-or-Treating with my brother, mom, sister, and my brother's little daughter. I was talking with my brother when we both saw a bright light flash across the sky. We both freaked out over it, but apparently we were the only ones that saw it--probably because it went so fast and lasted for only a split of a second and was gone. It looked like a round sphere of light, pretty non-descript; though it was unlike an airplane because it didn't have any pulsating red lights that you come to expect from an airplane---and it wasn't coming straight at us since we were facing N and it came from the E to the W. It was unlike a shooting star because 1.) it was around 6-7pm and it was still somewhat light outside; certainly not dark yet and 2.) it had no visible tail that you come to expect from a shooting star. I can't say how high in the air it was but, it seemed too low for a shooting star, and possiblly about the altitude of a landing aircraft. It was big and bright and it went fast!

Color/Shape: Bright, round white light.

Height & Speed: It traveled too fast to be anything "normal."

TV/Radio/Press: If something similar was, I'd like to know about it.
