((NUFORC Note: We have had several reports of this technique for observing UFO's, but it does not make an ounce of sense to us.

NOTE: WE STRONGLY URGE PEOPLE TO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN, OR ANYWHERE CLOSE TO IT, WITH UNPROTECTED VISION. MOST OF ALL, DO NOT LOOK CLOSE TO THE SUN WITH OPTICAL DEVICES, EITHER CAMERAS OR BINOCULARS.))

saucer shaped object passed directly above me

I heard about the "solar oblitteration" method of viewing ufo's on tv and tried it with success. Video taped some amazing footage of objects making crazy turns and 90 degree turns. Was traveling to Anchorage and stopped at a pull off to look. Looked up at sun, shielded it with my hand and immediately saw a circular object at very high altitude traveling very fast. It was dark in the center and brilliant around the edge. I watched it about 20 seconds before it "disappeared" from view. Just disappeared. It was heading due north.
