Reported: 3/12/2000 12:21
Posted: 7/1/2002
Location: Greencreek, ID
Shape: Cigar
Duration:3 minutes
Middle of day, an object was in the sky, no loud noise that would be like a plane of that size. It wasn't small. It was in the country.

I was driving and saw an object in the sky which could not have been a plane because it had no wings, windows, etc. and it was hovering. I watched it for a minute and then it began to take off...slowly at first and I followed it but then it was instantly gone out of sight. This is on the Camas Prairie, very low population, many fields and farms. It was so very quite...almost a hum.

Shape correction of greencreek UFO

I just looked at what I had put years earlier and need to have that corrected.

It was not a cigar shaped object. it was a disc, approximately 200 - 250 feet long. I wasn't "versed" in shapes and how to describe the object I saw, at that time.

It hovered about the same distance as it was long 200 - 250 feet above the ground. When I first saw it I immediately thought it was a jumbo jet that was way off course and was going to crash into the ground... that lasted for a few seconds until I got a grip on what I was seeing.
