Full Description of event/sighting: Hi Brian, I was enjoying a Saturday off work with 2 of my old friends on a very stormy afternoon. Intermittent thunderstorms, mixed with rain and hail were lashing the area, then patches of blue sky and sun. We were in the back yard of my friends hilltop home. We were standing in the door of the "Clubhouse", a metal barn, watching the storm. From the west, at no more than 150 feet up, and 100 yards distance a orange thing shaped like a fat dumbbell came into view from behind a stand of cedar trees. It wobbled along without rising, falling or deviating from it's course. We as a group spotted it at nearly the same moment. It moved with a strange oscillating motion. The speed was not great, maybe 20 mph. Our collective observation at the moment was that it was some kind of balloon.

Only a few seconds had passed since the object was sighted, then from beneath the object, a brilliant white light strobed and sparked! It was more like an explosion of light than anything I've seen. We were then able to see some kind of appendage the strobing light came from. The appendage could not be clearly seen, but may have been some kind of tube. My friend Robert said it was attached to both ends of the dumbbell thing, but to me it looked like a semi transparent tube attached to the closest end of the object that continued moving horizontally to the east. The object was still very near to us. I could see rain and hail bouncing off it's surfaces. Beneath both ends of the object that by now had moved 3 to 4 hundred yards from where first seen appeared what I can only describe as fiery pulses of light, that appeared for only a moment. The object then started rising at a precise angle as it moved away and picked up speed. The explosive strobing light emanated at random timing from beneath the dumbbell. It moved to the east, steadily rising, and we all kept watching till it was a speck against the clouds. One last flash and it disappeared. We tried in our following conversation to explain it as something conventional, but one of my buddy's that was witness and who I'll not name, suffers from mild retardation. He said, "you guys, we just saw a UFO".

Thank you to the witness for the report.
