Actually, I witnessed two sightings, boh identical, in Oklahoma within weeks of each other. The first one occured when driving on interstate 44 from Tulsa to OKC. It was about 2300. Weather was clear. There was very little trafic around me. There are few towns or houses along that stretch. I was driving East to West and actually had some of the OKC landmarks in sight. I've made that run on coutless occasions. The radio tower lights were clearly visible from several miles away. From high altitude this ball of light 'formed' about 30 degrees off my right hand side, about 1 to 1.5 miles away. It descended rapidly, going from a very high altitude to treetop in a few seconds. It disappeared at tree top level. The angle at which I first observed it and to where it disappeared made it look as if it were about 1/2 mile north of the interstate. From the time it formed to the time I made my closest approach was probably a minute or less. I fully expected to see the fire of an airplane crash and had already mentally prepared myself to view some really horrific injuries. When I made my closest point of approach there was nothing there. I could see some houses throught the trees, but all was quiet. The second event was much like the first. In Oklahoma, on interstate 40 around Henrietta. The only difference was I wasn't very close to the point of disappearance.
