Further Description of Sighting: It was mid winter. My brother and I were outside sledding down a hill in our front yard. It was just after dinner, and since we lived in a pretty rural area, it was quite dark outside other then the porch lights on the house.
As I was taking my turn down the hill I heard a sound above us like a “whirring”… over and over “whirr”..”whirr”..”whirr”. Not loud, but very quiet. When I looked up I saw a large, “saucer shaped” object hovering about 200 – 300 feet above the tree tops. It was a dark metallic color with lights rotating around the center. It was moving very slowly in an upward direction, and splitting into two pieces. One half seemed to stay in place while the other was lifting upward.
That is all I saw before yelling to my brother to run in the house with me. I was VERY scared! I tried and tried to get my parents outside to see it, but they did not believe what I was saying. When I FINALLY got them outside, it was gone.
The following day my mother was talking to our neighbor, and she told her about what her and her husband witnessed while they were outside that same night. She described the exact same thing as I did.
