Description: I am reporting this sighting to you today because I was reading your sighting reports and came across one from Clinton Missouri, wherein a go kart looking object was reported. I saw something VERY similar back in 2006. I was living in Manorville, New York and saw a small black sled-like object fly directly above me at less than 1,000 ft. If I had thought of the word go-kart at the time that is what I would have called it. Instead I described it as a black- diamond or rectangle shape. Yet that didn't fully describe it because it seemed to have outer structural bars like a go kart, appearing transparent between the inner diamond shape and the outside bars. Therefore I had called it a snow sled in my description. When I saw it, it appeared below a sky diver I was watching and it disappeared very quickly as I turned my head to follow it. I then squinted as the sun got into my line of sight. It may have disappeared, and I thought in turning my head that it went into a white cloud to my south, but it was was gone so quickly Ii couldn't be sure it went into the cloud. I reported this originally to and it is in the May, 2006 archived stories there.

Comments: Certainly if the witness's observations are correct he saw a very unusual object. No known aircraft have the shape described by the witness. The witness compared his to a sighting received by UFOs Northwest in Clinton, Missouri. Click here to read about the Clinton, Missouri sighting.
