Posted: 6/24/2016
Location: Omaha, NE
Shape: Disk
Duration:6-10 minutes
Silver disk flies level across sky, at low altitude, before dusk.

It was mid summer in the Early 90's and my father, brother and I were playing catch in our backyard in northwest Omaha. I was around 9 or 10 at the time. We all spotted a silver disk flying very slowly to the north or northeast at a low altitude. It was still daylight out but it was nearing night time, and it was a perfectly clear summer day.

We lived close to Interstate 680 and Fort street, and the disk appeared to be floating, maybe 2 to 3 miles beyond the interstate. I did not see any lights on the craft, but my father thought he saw some. I simply remember the shape of the craft. It appeared to have a distinct upper section and a smaller lower section. Depending on the distance, the craft did not look very large I would have to say it was no larger than 60 feet across and 15 to 20 feet top to bottom. The disk traveled perfectly level for a long time and made no sound whatsoever. It then began to speed up and it then passed beyond our vision after about 6 minutes.

I remember not knowing what the craft was but thinking it was unique and cool. I had spent much time at epply airfield because my dad worked there for a long time and I had not only flown on commercial airplanes but I had been near them and seen them close up on the ground many times. I have never in my 30 plus years seen anything fly where this disk flew.
