Location of Sighting: South Lake Tahoe, California
Date of Sighting: July, 1979
Time of Sighting: 9 PM PDT
Description: It was the summer of 1979. The same year that the satellite Skylab was due to fall back to earth. There were three of us out that night with binoculars attempting to spot Skylab moving across the sky. My brother, best friend and I witnessed seeing a HUGE round UFO hovering above us. It was so big it covered most of the sky above us. It had 4 very big white lights on the outer edges of the craft and hundreds of smaller lights in the middle of the craft. The lights were every color you could imagine. It seemed to me that it hovered there for about 1 to 2 minutes and was just above the pine trees. The craft was silent and made no wind. It then lifted upward slowly for about 3 or 4 seconds, stopped and then was gone in a streak of light northward over the lake toward Nevada. I feel that It was definitely there for us in one way or another.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
