Location: Exeter, CA
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 3 min.
I had gone outside to get the mail. when walking back to the house, something caused me to look above the roof where I saw what i thought was a helicopter. It was so low that I could not see the entire thing. I realized that there was no rotors and I don't remember any sound. It was clear up front.

I wanted to get a better look so I ran to the back of the house. It was still there. I saw no doors nor windows. I remembered that the binoculars were on the diningroom table so I ran in to get them. When I returned It was nowhere to be seen. I am seventy two years old and I will always remember. The object was more elongated oval than cigar shape. It was not large in the center and pointed on ends.
