Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 minutes
three of us were standing outside our lodge after meeting and a sound like a very large dynamo slowing down was heard. The three of us looked in the direction of the Ocean just three blocks away and saw what appeared to be a large object glowing white and looking like a minature moon , moving from our right to our left going in the direction of Allbrook Airforce Base, moving at approx 50 or so miles an hour and then went out of our sight. Afew minutes later a foot patrolman came by and asked if we had seen anything strange staating that the switch board had been going crazy with calls, told him our experience and he went hi way. Nothing was ever hard of it in the paper or Radio or TV. This oblect seemed to be floating on or moving just above the water surface.
