Second hovering UFO spotted in Flint, Michigan area in same week
A husband and wife reported observing a triangle shaped UFO hovering above an apartment complex in Grand Blanc, Michigan, on the night of November 25, 2012, according to a report submitted to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
The unnamed couple were returning home from a family visit at 10:45 PM when they noticed a brightly lit object in the sky as they drove southbound on Highway 23 near the Grand Blanc/Rankin exit.
As they approached the exit, the husband asked his wife what she thought of the strange lights. The wife said that it was "probably an airplane." But the husband noticed that the craft was stationary.
The couple took a closer look, and saw that the object was shaped like a triangle with "at least 3 red lights, and probably (not exact) 6-8 bright white lights or more."
As they exited the highway, the object was obscured by trees. When they stopped at a red light at the end of the exit ramp, the witnesses rolled down their car window for a better look. The wife "screamed" at her husband to take a picture of the UFO.
As the husband grabbed for his camera phone, the object began to fly fast to the south, and "completely disappeared." The couple drove through the apartment complex where they had seen the UFO hover over, but saw nothing unusual.
The wife reported that they "were completely shocked and my husband says he was completely mesmerized and couldn't get it together quick enough to get a picture."
A report of a similar looking, brightly lit UFO hovering over a movie theater complex made headlines last week in Flint Michigan, less then five miles north of where the couple had their encounter.
Original (unedited) witness report:
November 25, 2012, 10:45 p.m., Grand Blanc, MI - UFO flying above an apartment complex as we got off the express way home. We tried to follow it and it flew away. Case 44150.
My husband and I were on our way home from my parents house Sunday, November 25th, 2012 at about 10:45pm. We were heading South coming from Flushing and getting off at the Grand Blanc/Rankin exit. As we were approaching our exit, my husband asked me what I thought that was east of us flying in the sky. I was driving so I replied,"Probably an airplane". He said it wasnt moving, just hovering over these apartments. So I looked and I couldnt logically come up with an explanation. It was a triangle that had at least 3 red lights, and probably (not exact) 6-8 bright white lights or more. There were trees as we were getting off at the exit which made it difficult to see. So, we rolled the window down and once we got off at the exit and stopped at the light,I screamed for my husband to take a picture. He was reaching for his phone, and as we turned right trying to figure out what this was, it flew almost directly straight and fast back south. It was like it completely dissappeared after that. We drove through the apartment complex and couldnt find anything nor any other logical explanation on what it could be. So, we headed back to our apartment complex on Grand Blanc road. The complex we saw it hovering over was on Grand Blanc and I beleieve, Torrey road. It was the first road that you turn right off from Grand Blanc road if you go right off the exit coming South. We were completely shocked and my husband says he was completely mesmorized and couldnt get it together quick enough to get a picture. We called my mother and she found this site and another one and told us to report it. There was another sighting reported one week ago in Flint, Michigan but I dont know the validity of it.
