Three of us were in an old VW van on the freeway in Decatur, Ga. This was as close as I can recall 1974 (40 yrs ago). We see this UFO hovering above the freeway, maybe 200 feet above the ground if even that far. Cars and businesses were everywhere and it was perhaps 7:00 in the evening, summer, so it was very light still. No mistaking what we saw. It had these lights flashing rapidly, sequentially around the perimeter. I lived on a hill back then that overlooked the freeway, so we hurried on up there, parked and ran up to the top and watched if for maybe another 30 mins. I called the police but they just brushed me off. While I was down at the house calling it in, my friends said it shot off into the air at break-neck speed.
We knew immediately it was a UFO. So close you felt like you could have hit it with a baseball. We were astonished and still speak of it to this day even though we never saw anything again after that.
Note: There were three of us in the car but hundreds of people all around there, driving. There was a K-Mart up off the exit area.
The event date above is nothing but a guess--it was 40 years ago, not even sure what month, but it was 1974.
