Huge cigar-shaped object completely covered in multi-colored lights winking or sparkling, reminded me of an encrusted hilt of a bejeweled hilt of a middle-eastern knife or sword. It was just standing still in the air just above the tree-tops, and so wide that it could have covered 2 or 3 football fields. And, it just stood still in the esky and appeared to be no more than 500 to 1,000 feet away. I pulled over to the side of the road and just sat and stared at it…half expecting it to zoom off. But, it didn’t. It just sat there as if hovering in the sky. While I watched, a woman traveling in the opposite direction (East) pulled over on her side of the road, and also stared at it. She asked me what I thought it was? I said I thought it was a UFO. I told her to wait there as I lived only a block away, and I’d run home and get a camera. I was back in less than 3 minutes, but the UFO was gone, and sowas the woman. I surmised she just went on her way becaause the UFO had left.
