Location of Sighting: Lawrence, Massachusetts
Date of Sighting: 1978 or 1979
Time of Sighting: 8 PM Eastern
Description: I saw something similar over the center of populous Lawrence, Massachusetts, USA in the late 1970s (78 or 79). I was a child in a housing project. I don’t remember the time of year, but it was warm. The time was around 8 PM. I saw what looked like two wagon wheels with spokes connected to an axle floating slowly at mid-aircraft level. It was as big as the moon in the sky. And every edge and spoke was lined with white lights. I assumed it was a promotional blimp until I realized I could see through the spokes to the other side. (On a blimp the other side would be hidden.) All of our neighbors saw it. There were dozens of witnesses. It just drifted out of view. In years of searching I never found a news report about it.
Note: The witness is referring to the sighting of a Ferris wheel object seen over North Wales, United Kingdom on Dec 5, 2016.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
