This event I've never been able to explain. Witnessed by a friend at the time as well, so I know it wasn't imagined. It had to of [sic-have] been 96' or 97' at the time. St. Clair Shores had just finished its annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the Eleven Mile Road and Jefferson Library. On our way home the three of us (me, my mom and my friend) stopped at a party store which no longer runs on the corner of Thirteen Mile Road and Jefferson. As my mom went into the store, my buddy and I waited in the car and were amazed by what we saw. As we were looking out the window in the east/south/east direction over the lake, we noticed a light high in the sky was descending from further south over the lake to north lining up with the direction 13 mile points into the lake. It stayed about the same distance from the shore which I'd have to estimate at about a statue mile but still relatively high at roughly a couple thousand feet until it lined up pretty much exactly with 13 mile and went into a straight downward descent at a mile offshore. As it neared the horizon and water level out there on the lake, it slowed drastically and orange and green sequencing illuminations were present. The shape appeared to be saucer on the bottom with larger dome on the top. It entered the water very slowly as we had 10-15 seconds of viewing the lights and the craft to get totally freaked out as it disappeared underwater still somewhat illuminating the water from below far offshore. We said nothing to each other the whole time, then my mother returned to the car, and as we said nothing and craned our necks to watch for anything else, she drove off. My mother proceeded to drop my friend off without us saying anything. At the time there was no houses left of the house with the big anchor at the end of 13 mile so the viewing was uninhibited.
