Shape: Disk
Duration:< 5 minutes
11:00 am, clear sky, three of us saw a disk-shaped aircraft fly by, about as high up as an airplane would be.

I was walking down town with my older brother at about 11:00 on a Saturday morning. I am not sure of the year or date, but I would guess I was probably around 6 years old and the weather was nice, making it around 1969, probably in the middle of June. I remember looking up and both of us seeing what I remember looked exactly like a flying saucer. At the time I did not think it odd that we were seeing something that was not supposed to exist. I just remember asking a man who was passing by, “Excuse me, what is that?” I recall him saying the strangest thing…something so strange that I repeated it over and over again until I could go home and ask a grown-up what it meant…he replied, “I don’t know! It looks like a U.F.O.” He looked at it some more, then continued on his way. All the way home I kept repeating to my brother and myself, “UFO. UFO,” so I wouldn’t forget those letters. I came home and asked my eldest brother what those letters meant. He explained, and then of course nobody believed us so we let it drop. However, all of these years I have wondered if maybe the US Military had some kind of aircraft that looked exactly like a flying saucer? I would love to find out. I know I saw one!
