12-25-97 a disk shaped U.F.O. - top half silver, bottom black - hovered over Eagle Rock from 9am to 11am.

The sighting began Christmas morning, December 25, 1997, at 9am. Every one of my neighbors approximately 200 people stood out on the street looking skyward as the disk shaped craft hovered vertically south of my house. The disk had a intense mirrorlike reflective top half and dense black appearance on the bottom half. The unidentified craft hovered motionless here for two hours in broad daylight. I got a excellent look at the disk with 9x binoculars. Every now and then, a brilliant ruby red light would shoot down to the earth from the craft as if it was aimed a few blocks from me. During the two hour period, not one car drove past my location, either on Eagle Rock Blvd. or any side street.

At one point, I could see a small window open in the side of the craft. The image was distant, but I could see something move inside the disk before the window seamlessly closed. The craft hovered here until 11am and then began to slowly drift south. After a few minutes the unidentified disk tilted on its axis, at a forty-five degree angle, and then disappeared into a point of light.

The disk was seen at least ten blocks in every direction which means over 2000 people saw this strange unidentified object.
