I was driving east on il 116, driving into pontiac illinois near elk sportsman golf club . i always-am observing things when i'm driving , i'm also prior military and iraq vet. i looked up at approx. 9pm, and about 30/40 feet in the air i saw a distinct bright white orb hovering in the sky. it then bolted from a hovering-stationary position , like really bolted for 4/5 seconds, it seemed to be a straight linear line and then blacked out . disappeared . i couldn't believe what i saw , i definitely saw that and i called a friend to tell it to . i was by myself driving . was not tired .
