Duration:2 minutes
It hovered slowly and silently over us just above the trees on a NE - SW course. It was covered in bright white lights that did not project the light. It's shape was that of a squished Christmas tree.

My mother and I were watching an old western movie when I saw two bright white lights which looked like search lights on a helicopter. Mom and I went outside to get a closer look. When we stepped outside it was directly over our yard. The ufo was on a NE to SW path. It seemed to hover just above the trees moving very slowly and silently. It appeared to be of a squished Christmas tree shape. There were many lights which were placed haphazardly upon it. Mother and I differ on the bottom of the ufo. She didn't see a "stump" on the bottom, but I did. So, I saw small red lights in a single, horizontal row around the "stump." (The third witness saw the ufo the same as I did.) It didn't vere off course, and the area surrounding the ufo did not become illuminated by the lights on it.
