I was driving hom from lunch on Friday, April 15th, it was around 12:50-1:00 EST.
I work North of Atlanta, GA. Near Marietta and the Lockheed Facility there. It's where they make the F-22, which I've seen flying around a few
I took I-75 S to Exit 267-B, Highway 41. I was looking in a southwesterly direction out of the drivers side window and saw a long cigar shaped metalic
object in the sky. I mean, I'm pretty sure it was a like a 757 plane or something, but it was too far off for me to say for 100% that's what it was.
I couldn't really make out the wings or the tail, but my brain tells me it was a plane so that's what I'm going with here.
At any rate, it looked like the object started to bank. I use the word "look" carefully because as I said above, it was to far away for me to say
for certain what it was doing. After a few second there was a glare from the object. Then, right as the glare started to subside it was if the plane
or object faded away into thin air.
I figured I just lost sight of the object. However, it was clear skies all around, nothing but sky blue. The object stuck out against the sky very
easliy when I first saw it, so I don't know what happened.
So, is there like optic camoflage that maybe uses refracted light that makes it look like an object in flight is invisible when it really isn't? I
mean, sure, it was too far off to say exactly what it was, but not so far away that it was hard to spot in the clear sky.
What else could explain this other than some secret project? I don't want to say this was a "UFO" like an alien ship or something because as I
said, I just got the feeling it was a plane. That's why I put this on the Aircraft Project board.
Anyone else around Marietta GA see anything like this before?
