The witness was driving home from work westbound along Highway 72 at 11 a.m. on May 13, 2016, when the incident occurred.

“As I approached CR 735 to make a right turn I noticed a hyper white object in the sky,” the witness stated.“I pulled my car over and got out to observe it. The sky was almost perfectly clear with a few light sparse clouds. The object stood out.”

The witness described the object.

“I stood perfectly still and observed a cylindrical object with rounded corners (tic tac shape) spinning slowly. It widened as the sides faced me and dimmed as the edges faced me. I moved so that the object was sitting directly above a power pole. This let me see that it was perfectly still while spinning on its horizontal axis. It remained locked on its position for over three minutes and then slowly descended while moving north. It remained spinning without ever slowing or speeding up. It continued to descend until it dipped below the tree line and I lost sight of it.”

The witness took three images, but these were not included with the original report, which was filed on May 13, 2016.

The object began to drop until it could not be seen anymore. Pictured: Highway 72 in Corinth, Mississippi. (Credit: Google)

“None show the object as it was hard to see the screen to aim the shot while the sun was shining on it. The object seemed to spin at about 50-60 rpm which is why the pictures may not have captured it as it was turning and not very visible as the edges faced me.”

    I was traveling south on I-49 towards Laurel, MS. It was a clear blue sky, but there was a full moon. I got that feeling that something or someone was watching me. Sure enough, to my left was a tic tac hovering in the sky. No sound. No movement. Too low to be a plane. Too high to be any child’s toy that I’m familiar with. I was with my daughters. I told them to look as I slowed to stop and grab my phone for evidence. I looked again, before I could ready my phone, it was gone. It moved too silently and too speedily to be anything of this earth…maybe another. Even planes and jets can be seen moments from their original position. Maybe this craft had a cloaking device. Who knows. But it knew I saw it and I was about to record it. I’m not mad though. I feel it will show itself again.
