"I was driving back to college with my roommate.
It was a clear, dark, starry night. We suddenly saw a
long streak of light coming down from the top of the windshield.
The sparks of light looked similar to holding a piece
of metal to a grinding wheel."

right above us and our car. Suddently, the object went
from standing still to a startling speed in 1 or 2 seconds.
It was several miles away and made a 90-degree turn to
the east without ANY loss of speed. My roommate and I
got back in our car to finish our journey to school. We
were speechless for about 10 minutes. That night on the
