WHILE AT MOUNT WILSON, WAITING FOR THE METEOR SHOW TO BEGAN, WE GAZED INTO THE SKY. WE SAW AN OBJECT THAT APPEARED TO BE A STAR FROM THE NORTH, BUT WE NOTICED THAT IT WAS RISING. IT ROSE JUST OVER THE MOUNTAIN TOP AND BEGAN TRAVELLING DIRECTLY TOWARD US. AS IT MOVED SOUTH, TOWARDS US, THE LIGHT BECAME BRIGHTER. THERE WAS NO SOUND AND THERE WERE NO TAIL LIGHTS. IT CHANGED IT'S COURSE AND TRAVELLED IN A SOUTH WESTERLY DIRECTION BEHIND THE MOUNTAIN AND OUT OF VIEW. I REALLY COULDN'T TELL YOU HOW CLOSE THE OBJECT GOT, BUT I COULD GUESS AND SAY ABOUT TWO MILES. AT THAT POINT THE OBJECT WAS ABOUT THE SIZE OF THE DIAMETER OF A WOMANS SMALL FINGER TIP. I HAVE IT ON VIDEO AND I WILL SEND YOU A STILL WHICH I GOT BY USING MY SNAPPY VIDEO PROGRAM. THE REPORT IS LATE BECAUSE I DID NOT HAVE ACCESS TO A COMPUTER UNTILL NOW.
