A Georgia witness driving along Hickory Level Road near Villa Rica reports watching an object hovering over a nearby pasture "not much higher than the tree tops," according to February 6, 2012, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
"The shape was sort of like the Egyptian eye in hieroglyphs," the witness stated. "The dome on top came almost to a point. The bottom rounded the middle was visibly more clear with two large bright lights on either side. The craft looked like it was three sections. The top had red lights on the right side; the left was green; the bottom lights were opposite and randomly flashing."
The witness stated that the silent object was visible while driving for about two and-a-half miles.
"I couldn't pull over because of the mud, so when I had a chance I turned around and it took off. Strange thing is on Friday, my daughter, who lives in Villa Rica, said she saw basically the same thing from their porch on the previous Saturday."
