Unusual spacecraft 15 ft obove me. Stationary, solid matter. Did not hover.

May or June 1980 (Five Witnesses) Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Location: N. Portland Avenue, Oklahoma City between 8:00 and 8:30 P.M.

We observed two bright objects, parallel to each other some distance away. The objects were extremely bright and circular in shape. At first, it didn't seem to be that unusual, because they were aligned with a transmitting signal tower (radio, television or cable station), the objects blended symmetrically with the tower, that is, until one of the objects shirfted its position. The circular objects were still positioned on either side of the tower, except one of the objects was higher than the other.

Before the sudden movement, I had been ready to head back inside the building, but this definitely caught my attention. Suddenly, the object on the left side of the signal tower moved diagonally up and out of sight, and the object on the right side re-appeared directly over our heads. The movements were made simultaneously.

The craft over my head was approximatedly 15, possibly 20 feet directly above where I was standing. If I had had a fire engine ladder I could have touched this thing. For some reason, I was not scared, I just stood there looking up, saying - "That's a 'blanking' UFO." I must have said it five or six times, with no real excitement in my voice. I stayed very calmed. The craft remained there for about twenty, or thirty seconds. I remember turning my head slowly, from left to right while looking straight up (head tilted completely back) to see the full scope of this craft.

When I regained my senses, I realized I was standing out there alone. The other four witnesses had scattered, obviously frightened. I don't remember how or when, but I must have gone back into the building to retrieve my purse and keys, because all I can remember next, is driving home.

While driving, I could see military jes flying in formation, two or three at a time, darting across the sky in all directions. There was a lot of activity in the skies that night. I had had the car radio on and the DJ was talking about sightings in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas and several other states. It could have been Arizona instead of Kansas, I just can't remember. This only reinforced my sense of reality. Anyway, the next day the radio person announced that the military, or some official agency had issued a statement saying the sightings were merely weather balloons.

When I was asked a few days later to describe what I saw, all I could say was it appeared to change shape depending on its angle of observation. It wasn't circular as it originally appeared in the sky, or triangular. It was more...uniquely shaped. What I assumed to be the front was hexangular in shape, and the angles appeared longer toward the rear, and more so on its right side, forming a rectangle toward the back right. This object had some unique dimenional geometry. I remember thinking later that it had extraordinary aerodynamics. I only saw the bottom and not the top or sides. Although, I do recall a picture of the craft on the Phil Donahue show that would have aired sometime in '88 or'89. Someone, I think in Texas had taken the picture of the craft at a higher altitude. I only caught a few moments of the show on my way out the door.

This object did not hover. Hover to me, means slight movement while trying to maintain the exact location and altitude. This object was stationary, solid matter, a solid mass suspended by some unknowned energy. It defied gravity. I do not recall any radiating heat, or hearing any sound. And, because I could visually see the entire craft, I would guessimate the craft to be 1200 to 1500 sq. ft. in circumference with some type of grid outline on the bottom. I think I saw lights within the grid, but I'm not certain. It didn't appear to be shiny or brightly lit, while suspended above my head. I seem to recall it was grayish-silver color. What I cannot explain is the speed of this craft. It's like it manipulated, folded or enveloped the air space in dimensions I haven't... Yeah! I can't explain it. Its departure was fractionally subliminal and left no residual effects. It was beyond my level of intelligence, nothing I could wrap my mind around.

This sighting as it unfolded would have had Einstein either scratching his head or beaming with delight. Either way, I'm no Einstein or Newton. It definitely wasn't a figment of my imagination.

I am not saying I saw an alien spacecraft from some other galaxy. I'm simply describing an Unidentified Flying Object. However, if we do have his type of technology here on this planet, then someone or some organization has developed a way to manipulate gravity and the speed of light. Moreover, there must be a higher degree of mathematics, way beyond calculus and trigonometry that a secret select group of scientists haven't shared with the little minds of planet earth, because this definitely defies general physics and gravity, as we know it. It is a form of energy that is mind-boggling.

To this day I believe I had a visual close encounter of some kind. I have never wavered in what I saw that day. Trying to explain the encounter is extrememly difficut, or next to impossible due to lack of knowledge and things beyond my comprehension. I cannot remember who said this, but they captured my frustration in a nutshell: "For those who understand, no explanation is necessary. For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.:
