The saucer was flying high, with no sound and several lights. It passed overhead.

I am reporting this on behalf of my grandpa, who has related this sighting several times and is serious whenever he states it. He has given permission for me to report it. My grandpa and a friend of his were working in the fields at nightfall in the early '80s, he forgot when. They saw a disk-shaped craft move silently through the air above them at a fast pace. He descirbed it as "two saucers put together" and stated it had lights around the edges. He was in a truck at the time and his friend was in a tractor, and both saw it. My grandpa is experianced in aeronautics, having been a pilot and a avid aerospace hobbiest. He had no prior belief in UFOs as far as I know and my grandma still does not believe in UFOs, even after his sighting. The next day when he went to work at the plumber's office, he talked to two other friends that told him they were fishing on the Missouri River when they saw a disk shaped object (that they described exactly like the one he saw) pass over them in the general direction of the farm where my grandpa was working. He is absolutely sure it was not a plane, but leaves open the possibility of it being a government aircraft undergoing testing (he lives roughly 25 miles from Offut Airforce base) or a spacecraft.
