Picayune, Mississippi Oblong, Or Tubular, And Shining Silvery

Date: July 27, 2004
Time: 7:55 p.m.

Tonight,at approximately 7:55 p.m, here, in Picayune, Mississippi, as I was exiting a store in a strip shopping center, I noticed the moon directly in front of me. It was sunset, and the sky was still light, and the light of the setting sun to the right/west was dimming.Since I was walking directly toward the moon, which was to my estimation, visible in the south, I was looking straight at it, and immediately, two objects caught my attention. One was larger, oblong, or tubular, and shining silvery, moving high up, in an even line smoothly and swiftly going in a southwest direction. The other which seemed similarly shaped, was a little higher or appeared smaller, was criss-crossing going in the opposite direction. As I was looking up, two more women came out to their car, in the parking lot, and one lady said, "Do you see that?"

I waited to see if her opinion was the same as mine before saying that it did not appear to be an airplane since there was no contrail following it. She did not see the second object at first until I pointed it out. She then said: "It's a UFO." I agreed. As we watched the larger one going SW, it glowed a bright silvery color as it neared the sunset reflection. Shortly afterwards, it disappeared. The three of us saw and came to the same conclusion that it was not airplanes. The larger of the two had to be pretty large since it was visible for at least 7 minutes, and we had no trouble seeing it as it moved from us. When the sunset reflected off of it, it pretty much assured us, that that would not happen on an airplane at that height. Maybe it wasn't the sunset reflection, but it appeared to reflect the sunset, while the rest of the sky was blue/grey and the western sky was colored. The time on my receipt from the store was 19:45, and I stayed in the store for a couple of minutes. My watch may have been just about 5 minutes fast, so My estimation is that it was approx:. 7:55 p.m., Tuesday, July 27,2004.New Orleans is more or less SW of where it appeared headed (the larger one).

This was my first sighting of this type of object.The lady said it was her's too.
Really strange....... Take care

Thank you to the witness for this report.
