The sighting occurred at the intersection of US 17 and County Route 634 at 2:24 a.m. on November 25, 1993.

“I was returning home from Thanksgiving Day weekend in Maryland with my wife,” the witness stated.“We lived about 1.3 miles from this intersection. The lights hovered for about two minutes as we stopped to observe them. Then they slowly moved northeast and disappeared from sight in another two minutes.”

The witness is a private pilot and stated he had never seen anything like this before.

“We were about 100 feet to the west of the dealership while observing this. Both my wife and I heard no sounds emanating from the craft. While approaching the intersection in a southeast direction our initial thought was that it was helicopters from Quantico Marine Base, but that was very quickly dismissed as there was no sounds coming from the object and it was way too big to be a helicopter. Both my wife and I have the hairs on our bodies standing straight up during the incident. The rectangular light pattern was approximately 40 feet by 80 feet. The light pattern did not change during the whole incident.”
