Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): shaped like a small blimp with no pilot house below – all light came from windows along the middle side that I saw.
Further Description of Sighting: Wife and I were traveling from my parent’s house in Morgan City back to our house in Algiers, Louisiana, early Sunday night.
What I thought was blinding bright headlights from an oncoming car up the road, turned out to be this object hovered over the trees about 2 miles ahead. When we reached the object, we pulled over to the shoulder and I got out to look at it. The object was on the opposite side of the road about 10 feet above the trees. I stood there and starred at the object trying to figure out what it was – no noise at all, no hum, no rurh, only silence.
Lights were searching, on and off, below in the trees. Eventually, it banked, slightly and slowly moved away, further from the road until I could not see it anymore.
My wife was calling to me to “Get in the Car” and we left for home, discussing possibilities all the way home.
You would have had to have seen this to believe it – I see no other explanation other than “out of this earth”
I’ve just recently become interested, again in doing some checking to see if anyone else has seen anything along that stretch of hwy 90. Its been over 40 years ago and I have lived in Texas now for decades – that area is bound to have developed and probably not isolated the way it used to be.
