I am curious what is the strangest non-explainable thing you have seen while out on the road. Bigfoots, UFOs, etc..

I don't have my own truck yet so I will start it off with something I saw when I was a child. I was playing out on the front lawn with my neighbour and in the distance we both saw an orange ball appear and slowly move a few inches across the horizon and disappear. If I had to guess what it was i would suspect a some type of gas in the atmosphere. It was really strange looking, but cool.

Well, I thought I saw what looked like a UFO at first. It turned out to be the reflectors on top of a concrete barrier, the red lights of the back of a semi (off in the distance), and head lights of cars on the opposite side of the interstate.

Bump. Digging around in the relics and came across this thread. Still relevant, so what have you seen, thought you saw, or saw something you were too embarrassed to tell anyone about?

When I first started driving my trainer and I were doing our pre trip (3am, very dark) when he seen what he thought was a raccoon. It appeared to do that curiosity thing that cats do, step forward and Bob its head up and down. He told me quickly get in the truck as he thought it had rabies. I turn to look and it's a damn plastic bag dancing in the wind rofl-2.gifrofl-2.gif

I figured it was pretty strange to need a sign posted for this...
