Silver Metallic cigar shaped object. Approximately 200 feet above and to the right of where we played. Daytime Characteristics: Clear, sunny, no clouds.

In 1975-1976 my father was employeed to cut firewood about 40 miles north-west of Prescott Arizona. We were living in the National Forest there for over a year while he was working. Essentially, a three month summer camping trip turned into a year and a half camping trip. Anyway.... I'll be brief in describing what I saw. 2nd incident: My brother, sister, and I where playing near the edge of a dry creek-bed to the west of our camping spot. My brother, who was almost three at the time reached over and tugged on my shirt. He pointed to the sky above our heads and asked what that was...he pointed to a large cigar-shaped metallic object hanging silently about 200 feet above and to the right of our heads. It was really close. I instantly felt like we were being watched. I got scared, grabbed my brother by the arm and yelled for my sister to follow me back to our camp. We all ran...not looking back. We shortly returned with my mother...but couldn't see this thing again. Please see unknown and fireball shaped object.
