Drummond Island, MI

Shape: Oval | Duration: 20 seconds

2 slow moving white lights turned oval shape quickly banked and left fastWhile on Snowmobiles a good hour after dark. We 1st spotted 2 white lights through the trees. About 1/8 of a mile or less away. These 2 lights were just above the tree level. It was a cloudy night with snow coming down. We were in the interior of the remote 30 mile wide Drummond island in Michigan`s upper peninsula. With a low cloud ceiling and snowing lightly. We would never expect to see aircraft in the area. The lights were white-white with the left one being about 2 times in size as the right light.They appeared to be like a tower light not blinking. I first thought it was a plane that was passing by slow and low. They seemed to be moving in the direction we were going maybe slower than the speed we were going, 40 to 50 mph. I could see both lights horizontal. 15 seconds after spotting them they stayed spaced the same distance but started moving left. After a move to the left the object banked more to the left and I could plainly see its oval shape with one side facing me lighted on the edge. The light around the edges can only be described as like a woman’s ring that has baguettes set in the band. I could see it was lighted all around the outside edge as it turned up sideways.Its movement was not anything I have ever seen in 51 years. This very quickly got right out of sight in what looked like a rolling motion not like a horizontal movement. For just a couple quick seconds it kind of looked like a kid’s sparkler when you make circles without the sparks. As soon as it was visible as the oval shape to me it very quickly went straight away out of sight. I saw it as an oval shape for about 4 or 5 seconds. We stopped right away a couple hundred feet down the trail. We both said, did you see that? I said, I did but my family member said he did not see it leave as an oval or circle shape. We went a short way farther ½ mile and stopped in a more clear area. My nephew 41 years old did not want to hear what I had to say about the shape I saw as it quickly shot away. I am telling you on my mother’s grave this was nothing short of the truth.My nephew also said there was a collision of a couple satellites and it could have been falling debris. I got the creeps and looked over my shoulder all the way back to the lodge. It still makes me shiver as I write this. All I can say is I am glad it went away from us not toward us. This was truly my first time to see an object I cannot explain with movement like I have never seen. Wish we shut the machines right off to listen for sound. Seen by a 51 year old father of 5 kids on vacation, No drugs, no booze seen with good vision not tired wide awake Feb 18 2009 about 7:30pm a good hour after dark.
