The writer of the Internet posting at www.ufostalker.com/event.html?id=20142 said he (or she) was going to school at 9:20 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26, getting onto Interstate 69 at the Irish exit when the motorist noticed lights in the sky.
Initially the person thought it was lights, such as those used in a concert, which “criss cross”.
Looking closer, the motorist described the lights as four opaque lights in a tear-drop shape, with dark circles in the center.
The lights repeatedly came to the center and bounced back out, covering an estimated 100-foot span — 50 feet in each direction from center.
The lights as a whole rotated very slow.
The person said he/she watched the UFO for about 10 minutes, which was 100 to 200 feet in the air, moving parallel to his/her car. The object made no noise and was too large to be any type of known aircraft.
“I thought it was the coolest thing ever,” the writer noted.
Genesee County 911 dispatchers said they had no log entry of anyone calling in a UFO sighting, nor would they note one, unless an officer was dispatched to the scene.
Air traffic controllers at Bishop Airport said they could not comment, saying all questions must go through the Federal Aviation Administration.
Tony Molinaro, spokesman with the FAA Public Affairs Office for the Great Lakes and Central Regions located in Chicago, contacted the Flint airport to report that there were no sightings by pilots, air traffic controllers or anything unusual on radar.
“In that area, at night, with the cloud cover, it could be someone seeing the lights of a plane, but not the plane,” Molinaro said.
“That area (of the sighting) is an area of approach for aircraft.”
