Description: This is an old sighting. There has not been a place to report. At the time it was reported to the Grand Rapids, Airport. It was in 1968 and we were in second floor apartment on east side of Grand Rapids. Looking out our windows after dinner, to the NE a large (estimated about 10 to 12 feet across) seemingly round and in red, blue, yellowish green lights pulsating. When I saw it out the window over vacant fields across from us (a park now I believe) I ran down the steps to get out under it so I could tell more about it’s size. As soon as I ran out it changed directions and was heading south generally towards the Grand Rapids Airport. I went back up and called the airport to tell them and they thanked me. I am not sure if they ever saw anything. The next day, on way to work I was listening to a Rockford, MI station and the announcer told of an incident the night before, which would have been somewhat before I saw this. He said people on a farm had a strong large dog that was not afraid of anything. It was behind their barn, but that night came to the back door barking, seemingly upset. They let it in and it crawled under a bed. In the morning, they went out and behind the barn was a large, 10 to 12 foot burned area on the ground. That is all I ever heard about it.
