Shape: Disk
Duration: 5 minutes
It hovered straight across from me.

This is the first time I am reporting this. I was afraid to report it, since the 1960's. I was around 10 or 11 years old when this happenned. The sky was clear that day....I saw a disk & oval shaped spacecraft, the length of an airplane. It was in the late morning or early afternoon. I was looking outside my bedroom window and noticed an object coming across the sky horizontally, I looked and thought it could be an airplane but it wasn't, then I thought it could be a blimp, but it wasn't. As it came closer I knew it was something I never seen before, it hovered directly across from me, in the sky. It stood there for at least 5 minutes. I called out to my family to come and two brothers stood there and watched it with me. Then the spacecraft started to move in a straight forward motion...and on an angle, straight up into the sky and it disappeared. There were no lights on this spacecraft. It was dark silver in color and I heard no noise at all from it. I will never forget it.

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. We will ask the witness to have his brothers submit reports of their recollections of the event, as well. PD))
