Sighting Report
Occurred : 11/15/1965 16:30 (Entered as : 11/15/65 16.30)
Reported: 8/21/1999 23:27
Posted: 8/30/1999
Location: Syosset (Long Island), NY
Shape: Disk
Duration:5-7 mins
Observed a disk-shaped object about the size of a dime ( if held at arm's length )for several minutes against a blue sky until it slowly moved against the wind and into a passing cloud.

I was 13 years old and was leaving a doctors office in the company of my mother into the parking lot when we looked up slightly and noticed a silver-shaped disk stationary in the sky against the blue sky. There were scattered clouds here and there that were moving rather briskly across the sky at the time. We stood there for a while and some passers-by saw us looking and looked up as well wondering what it was we were looking at. About a minute or so after that it started to slowly move from its 10 o'clock position ( from our POV ) across the sky to about 2 o'clock ( against the wind ) where a small cloud was, like some others in the sky, moving briskly. Well, it entered into or behind the small cloud and the cloud just continued moving. I expected to see this object emerge from behind the cloud but it didn't although we stood there for a while until the cloud passed out of sight. The sun was low to our backs during this sighting. This was the first and only time I have clearly seen anything like this. We never reported it ( to whom??) but it is significant in that it was just a day or so before the "Great New England Blackout" so my approximate date of sighting can be narrowed further. I don't remember the exact day of the blackout. I think it was a week or so after that Life Magazine came out with their famous " Week of the Flying Saucers " issue. So there you have my, until now, unreported sighting fo your records for whatever its worth. At least I've finally gotten it of my chest.
