Cigar in Memphis 1974.

my mother was visiting her sick uncle at the V.A. hospital in Memphis in the late summer to fall of 1974. She and her aunt went out to the Denney's nearby for dinner. Mother said that everyone in the parking lot ust kind of all looked at the same time at some trees in a nearby (field, I'm guessing). Over the trees there was a silvery cigar shaped craft.She said "It looked like an airplane with no wings or tail, I could see the lit up windows and everything." My great aunt refuses to talk about it to this day. The reason I've sent in a 26 year old report is that I am trying to figure out how many people, other than those in the Denney's parking lot, saw this craft on that date. I am not at all sure of the date, but am certain of the year, the story and the locality.
