One state police trooper described the sighting as resembling "a bright light bulb bouncing up and down in the sky." The light, dubbed the "Great Arundel County Flying Saucer" by the Evening Sun, drew investigators from a committee studying unidentified flying objects over the United States.

Weathersbee. Democrat Anne Colt Leitess was appointed as state's attorney last summer when Weathersbee retired after 25 years in office. Leitess is being challenged by Republican Wes Adams, a homicide prosecutor who works in Prince George's County.
