Location: Fort Wayne, IN
Duration: About 5 minutes

|Unknown object floating across a city airspace
Last night shortly after 9PM EST, I was standing by the kitchen window. And as always I look out to check the sky condition. The window has a csoutherly view and I can easily see the zodiak and I like to check the sky condition and watch the planets traverse across my view.
The sky last night was a broken layer of this stratocumulus ans, as usual, the city haize cast an eirie glow on the clouds. Then I seen what I thought was an aircraft loosing aititude in preparation for the final landing approach to the city's larger passenger airport or so I thought.
But the aircraft did not look normal, first of all the city haise illuminated the object as it slowly moved acrost my view. It had a, sort of, saucer appearance, a scetch will be sent in conjunction to this report.
The object appeared a grey color similiar to how the clouds looked. I seen what looked like three round windows on the "side." I will estimate the angular height of about two and a half clemched fists, at arms length, and the widest portion of the object was from a half to one full thumbs width.
Next I seen no navigation lights or landing lights which I normally see on aircraft of any size at night. I watch the object for a few minutes and resumed my business as I pordered what I saw. It was then that I decided that what I seen was no airplane but instead it was an artifact that was made here on earth or somewhere else in the cosmos by an intelligence that we cnnot comprehend althought we try.
I have been an amateur astronomer for about sixty years now and I typically see lights in the sky that I cannot explain using out technology so I basically ignore them but this time I got a physical outline to study.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone, and he sounded very sincere, and sober-minded, to us. We suspect that he is an excellent witness. PD))
