UFO sighting in Decatur, AlabamaMay 25, 2008
What was it last night around Decatur that had people talking? Friday night and into today, our newsroom has been flooded with people inquiring about a strange sighting in the western sky.
What did people see?
What we do know is that an object was in the sky that night. What it was is the focus of tonight's WAFF 48 Investigators Report.
"I saw it coming thru the sky back that way and it".
Cody Terry was driving by the Aquadome Recreation Center Friday night in Decatur when he happened to look up in the sky and he notice something strange.
When it was coming through the sky, I really thought it was an airplane that lost control so I came to a complete stop on the road. When I got out and looked at it was no sound coming from it."
No sound, and he says it didn't appear to be an aircraft.
"It speed up to maybe two hundred miles per hour it went straight to the ground and disappeared."
Some people say they saw Med-Flight back here but some people say they saw something else.
Cody says he saw three military helicopters in the air and ambulance on the ground.
"We saw what was in the ambulance and to me it looked like what was a giant pearl and it was shiny. It put off kind of like a diamond type reflection on it"."
For now what ever was in the sky will remain a mystery.
WAFF 48 talked to the director of Med-Flight about an hour ago and he did confirm they had one helicopter in the area and no other helicopters were in the air around that time.
He also says one of his pilots saw a meteorite in the sky last night.
