Location: Lost River, WV
|The object appeared in the southwestern sky and appeared to be a star at first glance. What made me more curious was the fact that it was very low in the sky. With the naked eye it appeared to be in the shape of a cross, but when I got my binoculars it was apparent that it was a disk or saucer shaep. It was really cllear. There was an incredibly bright center light with large illuminated panels or windows in a disk or saucer shape. It appeared that ther was also something going on on the ground for at least the first 15 minutes. A beam of light went from the object to the ground. The object moved one time like a dart to an elevated space and then quickly moved back again.
((NUFORC Note: Sirius would be in the southwestern sky at this hour, we observe, but this is only a guess. PD))
