Witness was just northeast of Okemos, MI. Google Maps.

.

An Okemos, MI, witness had an afternoon sighting February 16 of a cigar-shaped UFO about 1,000 feet in the air and described as the length of a football field, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database.

.

The witness was driving south on N. Meridian Road near Okemos at 3:08 p.m. under cloudy skies when the object was spotted.

.

The object was between 80 and 100 feet tall, the witness stated, and darker than the clouds behind it.

“It was a matted flat charcoal black with very defined edges, it seemed like it was outlined in a darker black at the edges. If it were not for the darker edges, it almost would have been camouflaged to the clouds behind it, but the edges made the shape very defined and stand right out.”

The witness stopped on an overpass for a better look, but instead of seeing the object, experienced a “blue white clear light” flash of light. The witness said “the shape was the size of a large two-story house.”

Okemos is an unincorporated community in Ingham County, Michigan, a Lansing suburb, population 22,805.

The following is the unedited and as yet uninvestigated report filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If Michigan MUFON investigates and reports back on this case, I will release an update.

MI, February 16, 2010 – Okemos, Mi. Sighting. MUFON Case # 21999.

On February 16, 2010 at or about 3:08 PM. I was driving south on N. Meridian rd, north of Grand Rives Ave, near Okemos, MI. Weather was very cloudy, solid, dark storm type clouds, they did not appear to be moving.

I was not looking at the sky but noticed large movement through the tops of approaching trees. I realized immediately what I was seeing was not normal and slowed the car to a crawl all most stop, as I am not one to look away from the road in front of me while driving.

I saw a large oblong shape (cigar shape) at least the length of a football field or even longer. The height I can only guess was maybe 80 to 100 foot tall. It was maybe 1000 foot off the ground. I really do not know but did measure with my hand.

It was darker then the clouds behind it. It was a matted flat charcoal black with very defined edges, it seemed like it was outlined in a darker black at the edges. If it were not for the darker edges, it almost would have been camouflaged to the clouds behind it, but the edges made the shape very defined and stand right out.

The shape was moving southeast steady but much slower then an airplane. My brain tried to say that it was a HUGE black airplane, however there were no wings. If it were a plane I could see it clear enough I should have seen huge wings, but it was way way to big to be a plane, and moving to slow to be a plane.

I watched it for about 10 seconds then it disappeared.

About 6 seconds after that it reappeared for about 15 seconds again, still moving in the same direction. No lights, it just disappeared again. I thought maybe I should stop and just watch for a few minutes then decided to go slow and keep glancing for it in the direction it was headed, and I could get passed the trees and maybe see it totally unobstructed from trees. Although in no way did the trees prevent or alter what I was seeing, I just wanted complete view without any trees.

I continued south on Meridian rd seeing nothing. I crossed Grand Rive Ave, continued on Meridian rd, when I came to the I-96 overpass on Meridian rd, (about 5 minutes after seeing the object) I decided to stop the car on top of the overpass and just look as long as no cars were on the road. I figured I would just look in the direction the craft was heading when I saw it, taking advantage of the height of the overpass and wide-open space and maybe see it again.

I was not stopped but maybe 30 seconds and a lighting like almost blinding pulse type intensity flash of blue white clear light in the sky at about the same height as the object was flying. The flash was not lighting. It held a large oblong shape for the entire time it was visible, about 6 seconds.

I would say the shape was the size of a large two-story house. It was directly over the highway towards Williamston. It seemed to have depth somehow in the center.

I have to feel this was related, as that area would have been about where the object would have been if it continued on the same path of flight and speed, it was traveling just minutes earlier. I cannot think of anything else in the area that it could have been. It was not a normal thing to see, and it was above the highway, which goes on for miles in the same direction at the same elevation, it would not have been a reflection from traffic in the distance, it was too high. It reminded me of a huge doorway but it was like lightning. There were cars approaching so I moved on.
