Location of Sighting: Missoula, Montana
Date of Sighting: August 12, 2016 (Approximate)
Time of Sighting: 11:15 PM MDT
Description: I was outside of my friend’s house this past summer, in Missoula Montana, listening to music, and I saw a very fast moving yellow/gold/white light. I first noticed the light because I was looking at the stars and saw movement. At first I thought it was a shooting star because of the light and trail. I called my friend’s attention to it. The light then descended rapidly, then changed direction 4 times before vanishing with some kind of warp drive, leaving behind a glowing trail of light in the sky! At first we were astonished and in disbelief. Then I became excited and I wanted to tell people. I only told 3 friends because I didn’t think people would believe me. I lost sight of the object when it covered an incredible distance leaving behind a glowing trail vanishing beyond the horizon. I have seen planes, shooting stars, comets and satellites. I have never seen anything move like this and neither has my friend. My friend was a non-believer until this happened. I just want to know if anyone else saw this.
Investigator Notes: I don’t have an explanation for this object. However, if more data were available (exact date was known) a search could be made for other sightings or for possible explanations. Given the description I have classified the case as an unknown – other. In reality the case contains insufficient data to conduct an investigation.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
