Shape: Other
Duration:15 minutes
Summer 1969 in California's Cachuma Lake campgrounds 2 friends and I rented a boat.

While sitting in the back of our rented boat with the nose in the air we could only look up.

We thought it was a kite at first because of its' shape. The high cloud cover it was weaving in and out of was way too high for it not to be huge.

We turned off our engine and heard nothing.

What we saw was more than 10 sizes of a commercial airline.

It was white or light matt gray and shaped like a bow tie.

One of the sides of the "tie" seemed to move or blur.

Our parents still remember how scared we were when we told them.
