|Disc sighting in Detroit
This happened in August of 1980 about 11:30 at night in Detroit MI. Weather was partly cloudy.
Being summer, my father was sitting on the porch. He walked in and said, "Hey, do you want to see a UFO?"
I thought, what a silly joke but got up anyway and went out on the porch.
When I went on the porch I looked up and saw an enormous disc hovering in the sky above the trees to the east. It looked to be in the area of 300 feet long and had a row of illuminated portholes along the side. It was silent and floating in the same manner as a boat would in water.
My mother, grandmother, aunt and uncle also came out to look. We watched it a good 10 minutes before the tops of the trees obscured it.
