Duration: 10'
No of observers: 4

Location: Fort Benning, GA, USA

Shape: Disk
Characteristics: Left a trail

a bright silvery on edge object was observed by my father with at least 3 witnesses. it was observed "hanging" in the sky over Lawson Field at Ft. Benning for several minutes. Suddenly it moved, accelerating at such a velocity that it appeared to exhibit white "steam" behind it as it moved at at least 1,000 mph toward the west until it was no longer visible due to distance.

My father reported this to me one day at the dinner table. I know this to be true as he was a sceptic and said if other witnesses had not seen the same thing he saw he would've not accepted it as real. Several of his co-workers were with him at the time as they all viewed it together and therefore he "had" to believe that it was true.
