Date: Sunday night, August 12, 2007; 10:45 – 11:30
Location: Holland, Michigan
Message: I live in Holland, MI…few minutes from the lake. Four of my friends, and one of my friends dad, and I heard that Sunday night was one of the best nights to see shooting stars, due to the new moon..or what not. So we went to Holland’s airport, and laid on the airstrip.
We went around 10:30 and saw the usual shooting stars. It was approximately, I’d say 11:00, when I saw this object. I was laying perpendicular with the runway, parallel with Lake MI, facing North, with my back to Lake Macatawa.
While laying there, to the right of me, to the east, I see this purple/light blue object streak across the sky, but going parallel on a downward angle towards the earth, at arms length, it was about 2 hands horizontal from the tree line. The object was a fingernail in size at arms length, it left a trail in the sky, for about 5 secs, but the object shot across the sky for about 5 secs also…the disappeared. It streaked across the sky from North to South.
It was the most amazing thing I have seen, yet. My friends dad said it was a shooting star, just closer to earth, than the others. I don’t know what it was, but I want to find out. It was incredible. I don’t know if this could be potential info for anything, but maybe you could figure out what it was.
