The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
I walked out of the plant i was doing x ray in and noticed a black object shooting straight up at an immense speed directly in front of the full moon. as it went up it left a smoke trail that expanded over time and dissipated. it appeared to go through some kind of whirlpool or perhaps it was the bottom of a cloud i don’t know for sure but it was like concentric rings were left as it punctured the sky. i moved around with my cell phone camera recording and taking pictures of the strange smoke trail and the puncture through the clouds or atmosphere. i did notice one more extremely strange thing. the normal noises that you can hear at night seemed oddly absent it was as if they were muffled for a time then returned as if someone just cranked the volume back up. i saw no further signs of the object that night but curiously the following night the power in the plant suddenly went out for perhaps 5 min or less. then as we walked outside to look at the power pole to see if something had hit the transformer. they’re was a huge gust of wind as i looked over my left shoulder they’re was a helicopter no more than 100 ft. off the ground heading over the top of the plant we all ran around the front of the plant only to catch the tail end of the copter heading off into the distance it’s rate of speed and lack of noise astonished me.
