SUMMARY OF WITNESS #3 TESTIMONY

His department uses the same dispatcher and channel as Lebanon so he heard on the radio the conversation between the two. Just as the message came across the air that the object had left Lebanon and that it should be over Shiloh and Scott Air force Base, he saw a huge wide object, about 75-100 yards in width, with three large bright white lights sighted straight down towards the ground. The object was moving very slowly in a southwesterly direction. He described the object as looking like an arrowhead. The object made no noise. As he thought about getting a camera out of the trunk, the object all of a sudden sped up and was over Belleville or Fairview Heights. When it accelerated, it was a gradual acceleration, not a jerky jump. His elapsed time of seeing the object was about 20 seconds.
