Huge craft appeared slowly in the west,it looked to be very large for something that was at least two miles away(approx)it travelled very slow and then slid to the south again very slow.

sunny day in july 19/77 my older brother and I were out playing as teenagers then,I and he were convinced that what we saw was unmistakable,A huge craft shaped like the planet saturn with its ring,but with angled edges came into full view from a southernly direction very slowly making it impossible not to see.It just moved a short distance to the north once it had came into our view very slow and deliberate.It just hung around as if it wanted to be seen and then slid to the south again,almost serenly in fashion. The craft itself looked to be about two storeys high with a saturn type ring splitting it through the equator.Above and below this ring there was clearly visible a row of about eight windows slightly octagonal in shape and very dark.We agreed that we did not see any moving parts at all, and that it appeared to be of metal and a very pale orange colour.I know that this happened a long time ago but its not something I would forget especially the size of it,I believed it then and still do now.
