Multiple witnesses in two Georgia locations reported observing a bright, green and white object on January 20, 2013. One of the witnesses took photographs of what they saw.

The first reported encounter occurred at 4 a.m., on Interstate 75 near Calhoun, GA, according to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON.)

The unnamed witness was driving northbound on I-75 when ahead "a very bright green object just appeared in the sky."  The witness reported that the object did not appear to be flying in any specific direction, but that it "just appeared" and began to descend until it was obscured by the tree line.

The witness said that they were able to see enough detail during their 15 second encounter to determine that the object was a "ship" that resembled the fighter craft portrayed in the Star Wars movies. The witness was sure that what they observed was not a balloon or an airplane, but "just a very bright fluorescent green light that lit up the sky."

The highway was nearly empty at 4 a.m., but there was one car driving ahead of the witness during the UFO encounter that pulled over to a rest stop shortly after the sighting. The witness followed the car to the parking area and asked the driver if they had seen the UFO.  The driver of the other car did see the object, but did not get as good a look as the reporting witness, yet was sure that it did not look "normal."

About 14 hours later and about 50 miles south of Calhoun, in the northern Atlanta metro area of Cobb County, another witness reported to MUFON that they spotted "a bright white/green light in the East" flying in their direction. The witness said that the object "just didn't seem like a typical plane."

As the light approached the witness, it appeared to stop and "hang in the sky just over the trees" before abruptly and smoothly turning to the south. The object then turned back to the west and again approached the witness.

The witness took a photograph of the object, who said that it left them "jaw-dropped."

Original (unedited) witness reports:

First report:

It was about 4am; I was driving northbound on I75 and with the exception of a car in front of me the road was empty. Then a very bright green object just appeared in the sky ahead of me. It wasnt flying in a path it just appeared, then sort of dropped on an angle but you can tell it was a path to the ground and then disappeared under the tree-line. I was able to see enough detail that it appeared to be a ship? I know this is crazy but it reminded me of those fighter type ships you see in Star Wars. This was no airplane, no balloon and the green light coming from it was just a very bright fluorescent green light that lit up the sky. The entire time couldnt have been more than 15 seconds but it was clear, I was wide awake and Ill never forget it. 

As soon as it seemed to descend to the ground the car in front of me pulled over at what I now know as the Gordon Rest Stop, I followed the car because I had to see if this person saw it. I parked next to the other vehicle and as he got out, I said "did you see that"? He confirmed and said what was that? I said that was a UFO, Im not crazy right? He said it caught him off guard and didnt get a good look at it but knew it wasnt normal. While he didnt get a great look at it I did, and he confirmed to me I wasnt crazy. I saw a very good shape of it, I can draw and send you a picture of what I believe I saw if youd like. 

As I drove off, the next exit was Calhoun, GA.  I did not get the other persons name. I see below there is a place to attach a drawing, I will draft one and attach later today.

Second report:

It was around 6:40 (p.m.) when I glanced out my window facing the South. To my left I saw a bright white/green light in the East and that was moving in my direction and I had a feeling about it; it just didnt seem like a typical plane. I noticed it stop getting closer for a few seconds, appearing to just hang in the sky just over the trees. It then abruptly yet so smoothly turned to the South and then again back to the West towards me. It looked very strange so I decided to take snap a picture of it and my jaw dropped!
