Location: Fort Hood, TX
Shape: Disk
Duration:30 seconds
Spotted over Pershing Park (Fort Hood family housing area). Large basically saucer shaped craft. with compartment on top.Hatch visible.

Seen at approximately 16:30 hours over the Fort Hood family housing are near one of the water towers. It was daylight. I got out of my vehicle to go into the post exchange. I looked up and saw this enormous craft hovering in the sky over and to one side of the water tower. Detail was great. It appeared to have some sort of hatch on the side of the compartment above the saucer. Even though this siting was thirty years ago, it seems like only yesterday. I have never forgotten it. I went into the PX ( about 15 minutes), when I came out it was gone. I tried NOT to look to conspicuous. Remember, that was in 1965, People would think you were crazy back then. Distance on this, about 1000 yards.

((NUFORC Note: Two different years indicated by the witness for this event, '65 and '68. We will attempt to resolve the discrepancy.))
