Location of Sighting: Helena, Montana
Date of Sighting: July 1, 2016
Time of Sighting: Midnight MDT
Description: I was driving to work in Helena in front of Murdocks. I saw an object that looked like a hot air balloon at first. As I drove Under I slowed down directly under the object. Street lights reflected off the bottom of a grey shiny yet dull metal. I stopped the car and got out. I was looking directly over my head. There was no sound or lights. It looked to be a massive metal boomerang that had seams to it where big parts came together like a hot air balloon seams. Due to the object’s size and the way the light reflected off it I can’t correctly judge the size of this object. The lights reflection looked like small spots on it as it took up most of the open sky. It was coming from the east going slowly to the west. Then as it got out of under the street lights it disappeared as there was no light on the side streets to illuminate it. There were no windows on the object. It was directly overhead for a full minute. This object gave no indication if it was occupied or by whom or what. After a full minute of it flying over my head as I was out of my car in the middle of the street I followed it south in my car where it cleared the street lights and disappeared. Stunned is how I felt. Who would believe me? I was alone with no proof of what happened.
Note: The witness could have seen a hot air balloon.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
