In the wee hours of last Monday morning, Andrew Atcheson and a friend were driving down Butte’s dark streets after a long Memorial Day weekend.

They had returned to Butte from Virginia City, where they’d spent a few days taking in the Brewery Follies and spending time at the Pioneer Bar. Atcheson, who was the designated driver, had not been drinking, but his friend had imbibed a bit earlier in the night. Atcheson was dropping his friend off at his house in a neighborhood near the Chamber of Commerce office on George Street.

At about 2:30 a.m., while turning north onto Gaylord Street from Taft Street, something unusual caught Atcheson’s eye. Up on the hill, hovering above the skyline, was … something spherical. Something glowing neon blue.

Still driving north on Gaylord Street, Atcheson pondered what he saw for a moment before pointing it out to his passenger.

He said his friend saw the same thing, and a chill ran up his spine.

“His gut was telling him something was wrong,” Atcheson said.

The ball, Atcheson said, had a dim, neon pink bottom, but the rest of it was a deep, vivid blue. It was about the size of a car, he said, and it was — hovering? suspended? — about 1,000 feet above Uptown Butte. From Atcheson’s vantage point, it looked as if the ball was approximately above Platinum Street.

Suddenly, the ball shot directly downward and out of sight. Atcheson said the rate of speed was far too fast for a human to survive.

“We thought it surely hit the ground,” Atcheson said.

The two decided to explore further.
