Maryland - 08-01-09
On the way to Carroll County Airport (15 miles west !) from our 1st Maryland MUFON meeting, held in the 9000 block Baltimore National Pike, I snapped 4 shots of this on Rolling Road looking north at Security Blvd.
I noticed this at a stop light, jumped out and got camera out of trunk. This object caught my attention as it was hovering. Altitude est 1500-2000 feet agl.
It has 4 distinct protrusions out all sides. I shot it with Sony Power Shotsx1015. This was the closest first shot through windshield of car. We pulled off ASAP and I shot 3 more. We followed noiseless object about 3 miles north, speed estimated at 30 mph.
There was no noise. Object on a straight line trajectory at times, motionless, consistently ascending. Winds at Carroll County 160 @ 5 knots. This object's trajectory was on a 330-360 heading.
As a commercial jet approached (160-180 heading) on a divergent course (at Rolling and Windsor Mill), object just vanished. I was passenger in front seat of vehicle and had visual contact with object at all times.
Right after our first meeting. What struck me were the protrusions (4) and motion. There is a video shot by 2 men in Bahama's (youtube) almost identical.
Camp David restrictions were in effect 45 miles NNW. This object was in the outer Class B veil of BWI 2500/10000
See attached pictures.
(This object's trajectory would have put it very close to our meeting area at the time. Just putting that statement out there.) This case will be deposed by David Lyle and Don Borton. I am the State Director for Maryland MUFON. Therefore would prefer unbiased investigation.
