Location: Unknown, CO
Shape: Oval
Duration:5-7 seconds
In 1957 a strange oval spotted in Kansas that hovered, flew straight up, made 90 degree turn and accelerated at great speed vanished.

This happened many years ago. I have never forgotten what I saw.

I was a teenager on a car trip family vacation sitting in the back seat on the right hand side. I was watching out the window when I spotted something unusual. There was a brown farmhouse about a quarter mile from the road. There was also a brown shed a little distance from the house on the right. Beside the shed was a small normal water tower and right beside the top of the water tower was what appeared to be a second water tower...except it had no supporting structure and was just hovering.

As I was watching the legless oval shot straight up then made a 90 degree turn to the west and zipped out of sight at great speed. I have a vivid recollection of this even after all these years.
