MUFON Case #18440

On 2 August, the director of the Maryland State Mutual UFO Network filed the following report after noticing an unusual object in the sky. This is an excerpt, minimally edited for clarity and punctuation, and to remove individuals' names. The photo is from the MUFON Website.

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. 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. 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...What struck me were the protrusions (4) and motion. There is a video shot by 2 men in Bahamas (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.
