A disc shaped object was captured on video.

On November 22, 1998 at about sunset, my wife and I were chatting and having coffee in our dining room and we noticed the beautiful colors that were starting to show up in the partially cloud cover sky. I decided to get out the camcorder to capture it as the sun began to set even further into the horizon hoping to catch the kaleidoscope of colors. It took only a few moments to set the camera up on the tripod just outside the backdoor of our house and to start shooting. I returned inside to get my cup of coffee, and coat, thinking everything would be OK leaving it running on it's own. Well, everything did go OK, I returned and continued to let the camcorder do it's thing. Soon the colors began to fade and I stopped recording, removed the camcorder from the tripod and took everything back inside. Wanting to see if the camcorder had captured the colors, I connected it to the VCR and began replaying the tape. I was a little put off at first because the recording wasn't quite as good as I expected. That's when "it" appeared and my eyes about popped out of my head. Something came into the frame, then it appeared to change direction sharply and shot off out of the frame at a high rate of speed. A friend of ours who has knowledge of videos and computers did a video capture of that sequence of the tape. He then made two still images from that sequence which we are sending to you. The "avi", (the video capture sequence), is rather large, but if you would like us to send it we can. Just e-mail us at the address provided below. We would rather not release our names, street address or telephone number due to my line of work which I have also left blank, but we feel this information might be of value to you.
