Full Description of event/sighting: It was either the summer of 1995 or 1996 when I was driving north on the I-75 freeway approximately 10 miles south of Troy, MI.. I was driving home from a night at the harness races at Hazel Park raceway. It was a warm summer night with a very clear sky. I do not remember the exact year or date. I had my window open and somehow looked up to see a huge cigar shaped object slightly to the left of my car. I would say its size was bigger than a blimp. It was of a metallic color like aluminum and seemed to be flying evenly with me as I was driving. It had two white lights near the top of the object. It had no wings whatsoever and made no sounds at all. It was at a height of a tall tree which was extremely low for a flying object. I was traveling at approximately 65 mph and this object was staying exactly with me to my left. I was continuously looking at it through the window while trying to maintain a safe driving mode. At first I could not believe what I was seeing but I know it was there.

I remember that there was another car to my left and I tried to stay with him in order to get his attention for him to look up at this thing. After about 30 seconds I was getting somewhat scared and for some reason chose not to honk my horn to get the other drivers attention but was pointing up with my hand in hopes he would see me and look up. I don't believe he saw me pointing or saw the object. After a few more seconds of this object staying with me and now the other driver I became nervous and decided to pull off of the oncoming circular exit ramp to try to get rid of this thing. By now approximately 60 seconds had elapsed since I first spotted it. It took me another 25 seconds to exit and I stopped my car on the shoulder of the exit and popped my head out of the window to see where this thing was. I looked in a complete 360 degree circle and this object had completely disappeared.

Now this was an extremely clear night and I have no idea how anything that large could completely disappear from my view in such a short time. Over the years I have told my experience to several people and really don't think people believe me. I do not drink and do not ever remember hallucinating in my life. I know with 100% certainty I saw this huge cigar shaped, metallic colored object humming along on this hot summer night. I always have wondered if any other people had seen this same object at that time. I still have no idea what it was except that it truly was a UFO to me. I also find it hard to believe that no one else saw it since it was so large and so low to the ground and with some cars on the freeway even at that time of night!

Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
