A reporting witness said that he had never seen a light in the area for the past several years he had been passing along the highway.
He described the object of several large white lights around the edge that appeared like lights in the Christmas tree. The UFO had also lights in the center and turned on and off.
According to the report, the witnesses were in a hurry to proceed in the appointments but said that they regretted for not pulling back to have a better look of the said unidentified flying object.
Nevertheless, some people said it was just an ordinary plane passing by.
A helicopter was reportedly moving overhead shortly after the said UFO disappeared.
