Shape: Disk
Duration:15 minutes
Videotaped disc shaped craft in broad daylight

At 19:45 hours EST, my son and myself were standing in our driveway talking. For some reason, and about at the same moment we both saw an object in the sky to our NNW. At first, I thought it to be a balloon and called my wife to bring the binoculars. This object, through the binoculars , was flattened, perfectly disc shaped and was wobbling and rolling side to side and up and down.It did grow a little closer to us and it reflected sunlight as it turned. Positively metallic, smooth and disc shaped. We watched it for a while and I ran in and got the camcorder and digital camera. I have about 5 minutes of absolutely fantastic footage on the tape , but the digital camera failed miserably. The object slowly moved NNW until it was out of sight. I am ex military (13 years) and proficent in aircraft identifcation and this one was not in the books!! All I can say is I got proof…

((NUFORC Note: We have spoken with the witness by telephone, and he sounds adamant as to having captured a UFO on video. We have looked at still images taken from the video, and they indicate a round, dark object against a daylight sky. The witness reports having forwarded a copy of the video to NUFORC, which should arrive soon. We will view it, and report here. PD))

((NUFORC Note #2: NUFORC has received the tape, and it is exceptionally interesting, we believe. It is some of the most intriguing video footage of a suspected UFO we believe we have seen in several years. The video shows a very thin, distinctly disc-shaped object maneuvering in a cloudless sky, in a fashion which is totally uncharacteristic of a conventional aircraft. The tape is under analysis by a video specialist. We may post some still images from this tape. PD))
