I was standing in front of my house with my friends when the glint of something mettallic caught my eye. I looked up and saw what I can only describe as a disc reflecting the afternoon sun. I raised my hand and pointed at it while at the same time asking my friends if they knew what it was. We had no idea what it was but we all knew that it wasn't an airplane. It looked like a silver dollar held at arms length except that it was the color of highly polished brass not silver. It had three antennae on top in the center with two of them set at 45 degrees of the third. It moved silently across the sky from north to south at a right angle from where I was standing (my house at the time was on West Outer Dr. the second house down from the top of Washburn Cir. facing east). My best guestimation would have put it over Highland View Elementary School (now the childrens museum) heading south across the front entrance of the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant. I'm not one given to hallucinations and will have my pilots licence in 2-3 months which is why I know it wasn't a plane from the local airport, but I would like any information as to what it could have been from anyone in the area who may have seen it.
