Full Description of event/sighting: My wife and I were coming home from our cottage/trailer at Andrys Acres in Jackson, Mi., when just east of exit 172 on Eastbound I-94 a craft came right in front of us (about 200 feet away) from behind some trees (south to north) a giant UFO. A round disc, only about 100 feet off ground, extremely recognizable, very clear, and it was probably 100 feet wide, extremely bright lights emitting from around where the windows were (all around it) in the middle. The top part above the windows section resembled a dome, like a derby hat, and the bottom. Below the middle windows section was larger (the widest part) and was saucer-like. It hovered over the western edge of I-94 at least 5 full minutes, allowing us a spectacular view of it since it was so close to the ground.

It was emitting many thousands, if not millions of sparks. Just like they came off a sparkler. These sparks were being powered somehow, because they just didn't fall like regular sparks. Some hovered then flew up and away in many different directions. Some flew with huge force into the ground. Some hovered and they did circles and things (like they were dancing in a way) before flying off towards Detroit and elsewhere. (The UFO, while hovering was wobbling, as seen with other UFO's). Then the whole UFO flew towards Detroit at a spectacular speed. It was reported on Channel 4 News (WDIV) that night at 6:00 p.m. any many, many other people seen this craft, as we did, because we were all pulled over on the shoulder of I-94 watching this for at least five minutes, probably 7 or 8. This was probably over Detroit in about 3 seconds from Ann Arbor and it left that fast. This is true, so help me god. They do exist. I still re-live this entire sighting in my mind to keep it fresh all the time. It was simply amazing. We will never forget this.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
