Amature Astronomer has sighting with telescope of a large circular object with writting on it in 1964.

As told to me by a fellow worker who was an amateur astronomer, this story I cannot forget. This friend "Bill," was an avid amature astronomer to the point he personally ground his own ten inch lense by hand for a telescope he build himself. One night while viewing stars with his four inch scope he came accross a ball shaped object hovering in space. The ball was large enough in his small lense so that he could actually see some sort of hyroglific writting on the object. He desperately wanted to go in and get his larger ten inch scope but did not leave for fear of losing sight of the object completely. After watch the object for ten minutes all of a sudden four smaller craft came out of the larger object in a single file at a slow speed and departed. Bill kept his focus on the large object. After about twenty minutes to a half hour the small ships returned and re-entered the large object. Then after maybe another period of ten minutes or so the large ball (mother ship?) took off and disappeared into outer space.
