Luminescent disk traveling at fantastic speed over ocean near Schofield barracks, Hawaii

This sighting occurred in 1967.

While participating in jungle training in preparation for shipment to Vietnam, a fellow soldier and myself were on a hillside overlooking the ocean. We were relaxing after a strenuous day of training. It was about 2100 hrs and was dark.

A silver disk streaked from the South to the North horizon in just a few seconds. It glowed with a brillant white light. It was about the size of nickel held at arms length. There was no sound; also there was no tail such as a meteor might make.

Being an amateur astronomer as well as a science teacher I was and am familiar with sightings of satellites, comets, meteors, etc. My experience in the military also familiarized me with missles, and aircraft.
