Duration:15 min
This Diamond shape object hovererd on one spot for 15 or more min and was seen by many people, it was mentioned in the paper etc. It seems no one had a camera, but me. I never mentioned this to anyone then but at the time of the sighting I as an amateur/semi pro photogrpaher was just coming home with my camera, telephoto and tripod and took a roll of transparancy photos. The object was high in the sky, there were no clouds and the day was perfecly clear. The object was white and bright against the daylight sky, I don't know if it was illuminated or it was a reflection from the ocean's light. The air force did send a plane to look at this object as I saw the plane, the object was larger than the plane, the airforce denied sending a plane as I Recall, this was a long time ago.
