Date of Sighting: 1980 (Probably Late Spring or Early Summer)
Time of Sighting: Early Morning
Location of Sighting: Hobart Mills, California (See Map)

Description: I was 22 years old. My husband worked nights and I liked to ride my Suzuki 250 motorcycle and ride early. I was about 15 miles out of town. I was coasting my bike over the Knoll enjoying the sunrise. I was amazed and caught off guard. I think that the machine (flying saucer was caught off guard too.) The object was hovering about 25 to 30 feet above the dry lake bed. The object was very long, large and black. In about 3 to 5 seconds the object shot straight up in the sky. It was so fast that it like a "dot left in one's eye." I have been telling this story for years and wanted to let you know about it.

Note: The witness sketched a flying saucer type object. The only difference of this "flying saucer" from others reported is that this object was black. Most are described as gray or silver colored.
