Duration:5-10 mins
An illuminated Saucer hovers over my back patio. The Object rises beyond a neighboring house to the South. After hovering for five min's, the object moves Eastward.

On the night of Tuesday, January 28th, 1973, A double tiered "Windowed" Saucer shaped craft is observed from my bedroom window. It was first seen rising above the rooftop of the neighboring houses to the South. I dashed to the window for a better view, because I never saw anything like this before, and I never saw anything like it since. As the craft hovered over my back patio I took note of the windows being a Bright yellow to an amber. Some were an "Iced Tea" color. The dome atop of the saucer, which was the first thing I noticed, was a dull pale white. Two illuminated shafts of light accompanied the dome. The bottom side of the craft was completely dark with the exception of two lights (bluish-white in color) that went around in a circle. (Clockwise from my point of view.) Then after hovering for about five minutes, the craft begins to move towards the East, flying along at its low altitude of roughly a hundred feet give or take, then vanishes from view.
