UFO over Westerville, Ohio?

My wife and I were sitting on our screened-in porch at our home in Westerville, Ohio, which faces east.

At around 6:00 pm on an October evening, we saw a large bright stationary object in the southeast sky. I tended to ignore it for awhile. I thought that perhaps it was a communications satellite.

I went into the house and got by 7 x 50 field glasses to help identify the object. It was no helicopter, commerical or military aircraft, and certainly not one of those blimps that occasionally make its way down to the Ohio State University to cover a football game. As far as I could tell, it didn't move. There was no noise coming from it. The object was perhaps 50 to 60 feet in diameter.

The setting sun was reflecting off the object and made it somewhat difficult to see. As far as I could tell, there were no external lights. There were 5 large rectangular windows that took up much of the space of this object. There was a yellow glow in the interior.

I saw a person dressed in a light-colored single piece suit from the neck down. The person had a head, 2 arms, and a body. He appeared to move only once and only slightly. It stood next to what appeared to be a "file cabinet", which stood as tall as his shoulder. There was some mass around these windows but nothing that would constitute the body of some aircraft.

The next evening, my wife and I saw the same object. I called a local television station to report what I had seen and if anybody had any idea what it was. The lady gave me some answer and that was the last that I heard of this object.

As far as I know, nothing was reported on any television news broadcast or, printed in the Columbus Dispatch.

Surely, others in the area must have seen this object. I know what I saw, but I have no idea what I saw.
