Full Description of event/sighting: I was driving home from a friends when my radio started to change channels. That's how I knew the time. I thought,"Close Encounters", as I pulled out on the Highway. The sky was clear blue, no clouds and sunset was 6:27 p.m. I saw a strange light kind of like a welding flash, only constant and not as bright. In the middle of the light I saw this craft manta shaped and silver like the light was coming from the craft. By this time I had pulled off the road and could not believe with all the people driving by no one else seemed to see it. It was only about 500 to 800 feet away from my car and doing a jerky hovering right above a large pine tree. I watched it for approximately 2 minutes. I just stared at this thing afraid to blink. Though I would miss something I guess I did because it just disappeared. Like someone turned off a light.
I had a pencil and pad and wrote everything down before I drove home. I have been afraid of people making fun of me, like my friends. So better late than never. Now here is the weird part. I had put my notes away for when I would have the nerve to report it. So about 6 months later I got them out and to my shock. When my memory and notes got together the description of the craft was not the same. Everything else was, but the shape I remember was like a top hat. Like my memory was altered. That really has bothered me even till this day.
Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
