Shape: Circle
Duration:5-7 seconds
A large green disc that travesed the night sky.

I was driving taxi for Erie, Trans. Co. in Erie, Pa. at the time of the sighting. There was a passenger, a woman who did not, sadly, see it.

I was waiting for the traffic light to change at Buffalo Road and Downing, facing true south. As I was lookng at the light, I caught sight of a large, round, lime green circle with a misty perimeter, crossing in front of the moon which was at about a ten'o clock position in the sky. It was about 1/4 to 1/3 the size of the moon, and the size remained the same in it's orbit till it disappeared over the trees and the horizon directly south of us at 12'o clock.

Although it was of a very short duration, and had happened so long ago, it's been haunting me ever since! I am reluctant to talk to anybody about it because because of the looks and reactions that I get. Accompanying this report is a color pencil rendering as accurate as I could make it. The details are still very vivid.

There was no missing time or any other strangeness about it, other than the sighting itself.

Very truly; ((name deleted))
