Description: In the late 1990s I was in my back yard barbecuing and saw a flying disk shaped object flying about the speed of a small plane. It was flying from the Walnut Creek Hills towards the east and flew directly over our head at about two hundred feet. It was silver in color and about 20 to 30 feet in diameter. It had about 8 to 10 large white lights on the underside that flashed in a circular formation. It made no noise that I can remember.

I watched it fly towards Buchanon field and don't remember anything past that. I remember thinking to myself, " It must be man made, What alien craft is going to fly over a major city in broad daylight?" I guess my reaction was a little strange. I looked at my wife and she looked at me and I said, "Oh look, a flying saucer." I don't know why I wasn't excited or surprised. I think the lights going around in a circle definitely made me think it was some sort of a hoax. I remembered that a flying saucer had landed in the Olympics and thought maybe there was some special event in town.

The event has been on my mind on and off for years and I have done research and found that what I saw could not have been the same as at the Olympics as that was carried by a helicopter. As far as sightings go, this sighting was relatively good as it was only 200 feet above us, moving slow and in broad daylight.

I can't believe that no one else saw this event and I wish I could remember the year. I have since divorced my wife and have not talked to her about the event since it happened, but I plan to. My children were young, around 6 and 8 years old, but they say they remember it vaguely also.
