12 people were out on my pontoon boat getting ready to view the fireworks at dusk. From the west, a light(flickering) looked to be heading in our direction. Since the airport is nearby, we figured it to be an airplane. It didn’t seem to be moving to much and the light was flickering alot.
Next thing to happen is the light went out and a black object was hanging there in the air. I took my binoculars out and viewed the object along with many others from the boat. The black object had no real definition to its outline.
It had a really non defined shape and it was just hanging there for probably about 7 or 8 minutes. Then it moved off to the west and out of site. No one on the boat had any idea what it was and later we found out others had seen the object from the lake as we had viewed it.
