2 COWORKERS OF MINE AND I WERE FINISHING UP OUR NIGHT CLOSING A GROCERY STORE. WE ALL COMMENTED HOW QUIET THE CITY SEEMED TO BE SO WE WERE GOING TO GO OUT FRONT AND SEE THE STARS FOR A BIT AND SMOKE UNTIL I LEFT TO GO HOME. THEY WERE STAYING ANOTHER HOUR OR TWO. AS SOON AS WE ALL WALKED OUT AND LIT OUR CIGARETTES, WE ALL LOOKED UP AT THE EXACT SAME TIME IN THE SAME DIRECTION AND SAW THE BRIGHTEST ORB EVER. IN LESS THAN 3 SECONDS IT SWOOPED A HALF CIRCLE MANEUVER FROM OUR RIGHT TO OUR LEFT, TOWARDS THEN AWAY FROM US UNTIL IT DISAPPEARED COMPLETELY. IT WAS SO FAST THAT IT SEEMED TO LEAVE A TRAIL, BUT NOT A FADING TRAIL. IT PRODUCED THIS LINE AND THEN THE ENTIRE THING WAS GONE. THE MANUVER WOULD HAVE LOOKED LIKE THE LETTER "U" FROM A BIRDS EYE VIEW LOOKING ABOVE IT. IT MADE NO SOUND. IN FACT, THOUGH IT IS A RELATIVELY SMALL TOWN IT HAS ITS SHARE OF NOISE IN THAT AREA. THIS IS THE QUIETEST IT HAS EVER BEEN IN THAT TOWN. WE ALL LOOKED AT EACH OTHER AND MY COWORKER RAY SAID IT MUST HAVE BEEN A BOTTLE ROCKET. BUT, WE ALL PAUSED A MINUTE AND AGREED IT WOULD HAVE POPPED AND FADED LIKE FIRE. THIS WAS MORE LIKE WHEN YOU ARE LITTLE AND YOU WRITE YOUR NAME IN THE AIR WITH A STICK FROM THE CAMPFIRE. IT COULDNT HAVE BEEN A COMET BECAUSE IT WAS FAR BELOW THE CLOUDS. WE ALL THEN MADE THE CONNECTION HOW FUNNY IT WAS THAT WE HAD DECIDED TO SMOKE OUT FRONT. WE HAVE NEVER, EVER DONE THIS. WE ALWAYS GO OUT THE BACK DOOR TO SMOKE. IT IS JUST ODD, BECAUSE HAD WE FOLLOWED OUR USUAL ROUTINE WE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SEE IT FROM THAT SIDE OF THE BUILDING. AFTER ABOUT 5 MINUTES OF LIVELY CONVERSATION, TALKING ABOUT THE ORB. WE SAW ONE HELICOPTER LIFT OFF FROM THE HOSPITAL, 3 AIRPLANES FAR, FAR, UP INTO THE SKY WAAAAAY ABOVE THIS OBJECT. AND, WE SAW AND HEARD A HELICOPTER WITH NO LIGHTS, WHICH NONE OF US HAD EVER SEEN BEFORE. THIS WAS RIGHT AFTER THE HIGHWAY PATROL HELICOPTER HAD FLOWN ALONG THE WESTERN AREA OF THE SKY WHERE THIS OCCURRED. THE DARK HELI WAS THE LAST ONE WE NOTICED, BUT WE COULD BARELY SEE IT, MORE SO HEARD IT, THOUGH WE COULD SEE AN OUTLINE OF IT WHEN IT WAS IN FRONT OF THE CLOUD COVERED AREAS. THANKS MUFON FOR ALL YOU DO.
