Location: Old Washoe City, NV, USA

Shape: Disk

First, I would like to point out that this is a very old sighting that probably cannot possibly be confirmed. I am only hoping that somewhere, someone saw the same thing and reported it. I reported it to no one at the time simply because I did not know who to report it to and I thought that anyone I told would think I was crazy. Date and time are only approximate, having an envelope of probably six months.

I was out on a morning rabbit hunt. I had been out for probably 30 minutes when I had a sudden feeling that I should look up. I will never forget what I saw. It was a single disk shaped craft, directly overhead. It flew at an altitude that could only be described as miles high. I would guess 25 or 30 thousand feet minimum. It was very large. Approximately the size of a dime held at arm’s length. It was traveling from south to north appearing to have just flown over Carson City NV when first seen. It traveled from directly overhead to out of sight on the horizon in the direction of Reno NV in about 20 seconds.

On the off chance that this could be confirmed in any way, I could lead anyone to within a couple of hundred feet of where the encounter took place and demonstrate the movement of the craft. However, as I’ve said, it probably is just a waste of time reporting this at this late date.

Thanks for opportunity anyway.


Witness indicates that date of incident is approximate. PD
