Not long ago, I was traveling westbound on a metropolitan detroit surface road when I noticed what I thought was a hang glider off in the distance. As
I approached, I noticed that the object seemed stationary which didn't make sense. Also, I noticed that the object seemed to be shifting shapes. I
was so intrigued that I slowed my speed because I couldn't take my eyes off of it and i had to be careful driving as it was a construction zone.
After about covering a mile I came upon a construction worker holding a temporary "STOP" sign on the road. I pulled up to him, stopped my car, and
proceeded to ask what it was. At first, he said "it's a bird" but then I noticed that there was a hawk or other large bird flying nearby the object
but lower in altitude and told him to look again. He looked again and saw the object and said "what the hell is that?" I replied that I have no idea
and we just sat there watching the object twist and shift for about three minutes until two other construction workers who were nearby saw us and
asked what we were looking at. We then proceeded to point to the object in the sky and they saw it too.
Still amazed and perplexed, I then continued a couple tenths of a mile down the road to the dry cleaner which is where I was headed. Once there, I
looked up in the sky and saw the object again clearly. This was a clear day with abundant sunshine and unrestricted visibility. I then proceeded into
the cleaners and told two young female employees what I had seen. Excitedly, they then followed me outside to view the object but it was gone. It had
simply vanished in less than 60 seconds. The hawk was still there but the object was gone.
As I pulled out of the cleaners, I saw a marked patrol car of the local police department sitting on the side of the road. I pulled over and
approached the vehicle and started the conversation by saying "listen, I know this is going to sound strange but I'm not drunk and I have a federal
security clearance." I then told him what I had seen and asked if he had any strange reports from dispatch. He said no. I told him that if he does,
that I saw it and that I would give a statement if anybody was interested.
I am ninety-nine percent certain that the object in this video is exactly what I witnessed that day.
