Description (In Witness's Own Words): This report was told to me by my parents several hours after their sighting. They saw a large, primarily round, glowing object filled with lights that remained stationary during approximately 30 minutes of observation. It was very low, hovering in the eastern sky. My father, who is elderly, got up through the night because he thought he heard someone knocking on the door. He looked out the living room window and saw the object in the east. He yelled for my mother, not only because he was frightened, but he also said he "wanted her to see it, too, so that people wouldn't think he was imagining things." I asked each of them separately to draw a picture of it. They both drew basically the same structure. When I asked them how long it remained hovering in a stationary position, and if it had vanished or flown away, they both said that they didn't know because after watching it for approximately 30 minutes, they became very tired and went back to bed. It was still glowing and maintaining the same position at that time, which would have been around 3:30 am. I have combed the web to see if anyone else saw this, but have not yet seen a report or heard anything on the news. My parents are very stable, reliable people, so I know that they saw something.

Notes From Daughter of Witness Regarding Drawings: Sorry I'm late getting these drawings to you. My computer wouldn't allow me to attach them. At first glance, they appear to be drawings of different objects. However, my mother and I agree that, because of my father's impaired vision, he was not able to see the "peaks " that my mother saw. He said that the image appeared to him to be "round like the earth looks when it is seen from space, but with many lights in it; sort of like the moon only with a much brighter light." My mother said, "Yes, it was round, but only in the middle. It had peaks on the top and bottom that resembled a bright, sparkling planet at night, but it was much bigger and was filled with lights." When I asked her if it was as big as the moon, she immediately said, "It was much bigger; maybe not as wide, but much longer." My father agreed that it was much bigger than the moon. Hope this helps. I'm still looking for someone who might have seen this.

Investigator's Notes: The report was received second hand from the witnesses' daughter. Apparently the object was quite big. The drawings by each of the witnesses differ. The drawing by the wife (drawing to the right above) is probably more reliable given that the husband has some visual impairment. The satellite map indicates that the area to the east of the address where the witnesses saw the object is an open area devoid of buildings. This is probably the area where the light or object hovered. Given available information I have no explanation for what the witnesses observed.
