SKETCH OF FLYING DISK PREPARED BY WITNESS.

SKETCH OF FLYING DISK PREPARED BY WITNESS.


Description: Nearly 250 witnesses saw a silver flying saucer. Many motorists stopped to view the object. The saucer was first sighted over the Willamette River just above the treeline. The object moved to the east, vanished briefly and reappeared. The object was visible for 10 to 15 minutes. The object shot straight up and vanished in 1 to 1.5 seconds without making a sound. The object was smooth and contained no visible rivets. (See sketch of object above prepared by witness.)

The witness reporting the sighting called the airport and was told that no planes were in the area and advised calling the police. The police were called and said that they received over 250 reports. The witness has not seen any coverage of this incident in any UFO documentaries.

Note: I have not heard of this sighting beforehand. A UFO sighting wave occurred in the early and mid 1970’s and many of the most compelling sightings were reported.

Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting. Be detailed in your description. You may also use our report form to report your sighting. Comments will be published if they are in "good taste" and not inflammatory.
