witness was going for a walk at Fairfield Village in Ocala,
Florida, when he saw a V-shaped vehicle (like a flying
wing) from 35 to 50 feet in width. When he first observed
it, it was about 100 feet above the ground. The silent
object veered around a treetop and rested parallel to
him - about 40 feet away and then left. The sighting lasted
3-5 minutes. Possible electromagnetic effects on the witness'
vehicle were noticed.

Description and Details:
was going for a walk at Fairfield Village in Ocala, Florida
at approximately 9:00 p.m. I was looking at the stars
(in particular, Orion) when there was a abrupt rushing
sound as I saw what looked like a v-shaped wing pass about
50 feet above a tree, descending, and banking on about
a 60-degree angle. I ran towards the tree to get a better
view of the wing as it receded into the dark. After the
rushing sound, the wing made no sound. There were also
no lights showing on the vehicle. All I could see was
the general v-shape as it rocked or pitched its wingtips,
banking from side to side. At first, I thought it was
perhaps a flock of Canadian geese, but there was no flapping
sound or honking, and besides, the shape moved as a solid
piece. I could barely see the shape of a row of circular
lights on the rear end of the wing - but they were not
lit. Mostly, I didn't believe what I was seeing and ended
up asking myself why someone would be hang-gliding at
9 o'clock at night. All this time, the wing made no sound
as it moved less than 50 feet above the treeline. I gave
up on trying to figure out what I saw and decided to continue
with my walk.
this point, the wing must have back-tracked because it
was suddenly about 40 feet from where I was standing.
It looked as if it was going to hit the trunk of a tree
that was nearby, but then it poised only a few feet above
the ground with its nose pointed to the tree. At this
point, the nose of the wing turned 90 degrees while rotating
the axis of its wing so that the entire craft was on its
side, perpendicular to the ground about 6 feet above the
ground. The wing then moved forward to clear the tree
and then straightened itself out so that it returned to
the wing being in a horizontal position or parallel to
the ground. It was stationary in midair for a moment before
disappearing (headed north) while flying close to the
treeline - all the while, banking and pitching along with
the shapes of the trees.
entire incident took place in just a few minutes in silence
and involved traveling from south to north. The only sounds
made were when the wing did its positioning (a whirring
sound) and the sound of the air itself rushing over the
wing. The craft (or whatever it's called) gave the impression
of a giant gliding sail or bird (like a pterodactyl) while
flying. There was nothing threatening or frightening about
the experience. This is the only time I've ever seen anything
the experience, I went for a ride in my truck. The night
was clear when I left, but low clouds rolled in by the
time I got back. When I returned and turned on the left
indicator, the seatbelt warning was beeping in unison
with the indicator even though my belt was fastened. I
looked at the dashboard and all the needles were moving
