Date: 10/13/2002, 7:10 p.m. Sunday EST

Approach Direction: stationary

Departure Direction: stationary...then blinked off

Witness Direction: southwest

Description: me and my family were driving home from the GA national fair on hwy 341, almost home when my wife asked me "what that light is there in the sky", i had already notice what appeared, at first, to be a very bright star. it was not dark yet, about dusk when we turned off the road and continued slowly. We soon passed behind some trees and lost sight. we turned around and went back. we watched it again, in the same position for only a few seconds when it just blinked out, almost like a light switch. Very strange. it was really bright and low to the tree tops. we are still awe struct and can't quit thinking about it. i know what i saw was very unusual. i only wish i had a video camera.

Color/Shape: extremely bright light and i could not make out any shape behind the light.very low to the ground. i am also a long time resident of the area and familar with towers and other light producing objects in this area. i also live in a very rural area with no large aircraft flights in the vicinity. Stars are not that low or that bright.I did notice that there was no sound.

Height & Speed: the light never moved and was at an estimated altitude of maybe 1000ft. after a short time it disappeared, almost like a light bulb.

TV/Radio/Press: i did make a report 1 hour later to Warner Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, Ga.
