Two Wyoming witnesses driving northbound along I-25 about 5 to 10 miles south of Cheyenne about 9:40 p.m. on March 6, 2014, reported watching three lights originally thought to be an airplane that quickly dropped and moved alarmingly close to their vehicle, according to testimony from Case 54501 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The two were returning from a trip to Fort Collins, CO, and were approaching Cheyenne when three lights in the sky were first thought to be a C130.

"It was coming south and started to bank towards the east," the reporting witness stated. "I saw it rotate approximately 90-degrees such that a plane (let alone a large one) could not sustain lift. I immediately thought, whatever it was, it was going to crash. At that point the lights were straight vertical, with three lights up and down."

As the object moved closer, they could see that it was not a plane.

"It started coming towards as we drove on the interstate northbound. I started to notice, as it got closer, that it was not a plane. I could not really see any structure. This may have been because the lights were bright, because I was driving, or because it did not have any."

Then they noticed that the object was getting even closer.

"As it got closer to us it turned more horizontally (lights maybe 45-degrees or more) and started coming towards my truck that was travelling approximately 75 mph. My buddy started yelling at me to hit the gas pedal because we thought it was coming at us and would crash into the interstate."

The object then appeared to be directly over their vehicle's rooftop.

"Eventually the lights slowed down and whatever it was, was directly above my truck roof (which is opaque, no sunroof or anything). I rolled down my window and stuck my head out to see if I could see it in the rear, but my view was obstructed and I do not think anything was visible."
