He called on Friday, 06JA96. I called him back several days later.

He was in backyard pushing his daughter on her swing, and was facing north. His attention was suddenly drawn to a "bright light" against the dark storm clouds to the north, and was approximately 500-1,000 feet above the ground, he thought.

It seemed to be just hovering, and it didn't seem to be getting closer or farther.

Suddenly, it rose up and drifted to one side, then stopped abruptly. It turned, and it appeared to be elongate, almost blimp shaped.

He got his binoculars from his car, and looked at with them. When he bent down to let his daughter use the binoculars, when he looked back up at it, it was gone.

He ran out in the large field behind his house to see if he could spot it again, but it was gone.
