Location: Watkins Glen, NY
Duration: 10 minutes
Large wheel of no substance flickering and copying itself.

Hope this is not too obsolete. We did not see a UFO but rather a UPO (unidentified parked object).

We were staying at the Fawn Motel located on NY route ll on the west side of Lake Seneca , one of the finger lakes.

Through the transclucent window we saw a large wheel avout 8 to 10 feet high. Light chartreuse in color. Thick rim with four thick spokes centering on a large hub. As we watched it flickered continually and when it did so it replicated it self totally to the right with the strongest duplication in the 6:oo to 9:oo sector.

Went out next morning a saw nothing.

((NUFORC Note: We presume the witness already has ruled out a ferris wheel, or some other pedestrian cause of the sighting. PD))
