Shape: Cylinder
I was about 13 when I was laying down in a field looking at the partly cloudy sky. It was a windy day when the some of the cloud seperated and I saw a large cylinder.

It was a summer day in 1972 a year before my father past-away. I was 13 years old. That summer day I was playing in a field near my home on Landsford Rd 3 miles south of Marshville, NC. I then layed down and looking at the clouds, they were low lying clouds and it was a windy day when some of the cloud broke up an I saw a cylinder that was white or silver and had 2 black ring around it (It was silver, black, silver, black, silver) I got up from laying down asd look back up in the sky and it was gone. I thought I was just seeing thing but It seems so real and even after 26 years I still think about that day. I have watch a lot of documentary on UFO but never seen anything like what I saw. Do you have any sighting of a black and white cylinder.
