Description:  I saw people in a disk shaped object approximately 20- 22 feet around hovering over me for around 5 minutes with 6-7 people on board. In a phone interview with the witness she stated the object was spinning (on the inside).  She described the color as a "primer gray" and says that she could see welding indentations on the craft.  The craft had no markings or emblems.  She could see the occupants clearly.  They were wearing white lab coats and one of the men was wearing a red tie.  She described one woman as wearing 1950s style glasses.  The occupants were all human.  She stated that the craft made a musical sound similar to the melody heard on ice cream trucks.  The craft sped away executed several rapid back and forth movements shot straight up and disappeared.

Investigator's Notes: This sighting is strange in that the witness claims to have seen human occupants inside what is described as a classic flying saucer.  I interviewed the witness and she seems credible and sincere.  She repeated certain aspects of her account and did not deviate from her story.  She said that other witnesses may be willing to be interviewed.  Apparently an article regarding UFO sightings appeared in the local paper around that time. I have requested a search for UFO sightings from the local library.  When I asked why the witness waited nearly 30 years to report the sighting she responded that she was afraid of ridicule and did not know where to report the sighting.  The validity of this sighting rests solely with the witness testimony. 

Note: Both the witness and her sister have signed affidavits verifying that the above sighting occurred.
