Description: Hello, I know this has been a while back, but I just recently got a computer. I know this looks odd, and I probably wouldn't believe it either, but my husband and I both saw this. It was actually flying directly over our house. It was 6 January 1997 between 7:00 and 7:30 pm. It was going from east to west. I have done quite a bit of research and have, as of yet, not found any other pictures or sketches that look anything like this one. All of the squares on the bottom were lights and there were tiny lights all over the sides. To me they looked like they could have been tiny windows. You could see tiny squares all over the sides, but only some were lit up. This thing was HUGE!!! It also made a very deep rumbling sound, we could feel it. If you have would you please let me know. We live in a small town in Kansas (Herington) and if you say anything to anyone about seeing something, they want to know what you've been smoking and where they can get some! Hope to hear from you.

Comments: I think that if saw something like what the witnesses described that I might go and "smoke something." This is certainly a strange looking object. I have never received a report of an object of this configuration.
