Subject: Information On Michigan Sightings

Hello List members,

Below you'll see some reports listed at NUFORC. I've requested
from Mr. Davenport more information on these but I'm curious if
anyone here has anything more on these particular sightings.
I've recently been contacted by a witness in this same area,
with a sighting on this same date, so I'd like to get some
background on these if possible. Any help anyone could provide
would be greatly appreciated.

Here's the report I received and below that are NUFORC's
listings for this date. Please cc me offlist so I can respond
much quicker.

-----beginning of report----------

myself and 2 others were traveling north on I-75 on april 14th
1996. we were on our way home(st . ignace)from the pontiac
supercross which ended around 11:30 p.m. on the 13th. at
approx. 3 a.m. i noticed a large slow moving "football shaped"
light moving from my left to my right through my windshield. the
object was quite a ways away. we were somewhere around gaylord.
i was driving, and the others were sleeping. i watched it for a
while , trying to figure out what it was. i then woke up one of
the others and they viewed it as well. i don't remember exactly
how long i had viewed it but i would have to say at least 5
minutes. it then disapeered to the east. i think i m ight have
lost it in the trees. then that was it. it was pretty amazing
. i got home around 4 a.m. and went to sleep. i woke up a bit
later and had to be to work. i came home for my lunch break at
around 12:30 p.m on the 14th. i had spoken to nobody about
this,nor had the others.in fact, they were still sleeping when i
got home for my lunch break. this is where it gets weird.
....when i got home "this person who i am sure wants to remain
anonymous" and just happens to be a sheriff, was telling others
this story of an amazing encounter that he and his friend had
had last night! we will call him bob. bob and his friend were
driving along us-2 near brevort lake. i asked him what time,
and he said that it was around 3 in the morning. he was not on
duty. his story is pretty amazing. i then decided to call the
state police and ask them if they had had any reports. they
made me feel stupid. if you are interested, i can get ahold of
"bob" and ask him to give me a detailed description of what he
and his friend had seen.
