July 1947 around 5 pm I saw a gray disc-like object in the sky which newscaster Cedric Adams mentioned later

I'm not at all certain of the date. It could have been July - September 1948.

I would have been 24 or 25. We lived at ((deleted-- XXX)) 6th Street, S.E. A telephone company building was to my right on the corner. These buildings no longer exist. Hubert Humphrey and his family lived down the block on the street running to my right.

I was standing at the top of a flight of outdoor stairs which descended to the back yard, waiting for my husband to come home from work. The object was not far above the height of the trees but far away, almost still. It was gray, bulging smoothly at top and bottom. It hung there long enough for me to realize it wasn't a plane or dirigible or balloon. Then it disappeared. I may have been momentarily distracted by my baby. Later that evening we listened to Cedric Adams, a Minneapolis news commentator, who mentioned that he had had calls about a flying object.
