Duration:
a dark object came down out of the dark cloud, leveled off and shot up through the cloud

August,1952 Location: Fairly positive I was enroute from Toronto to Petersborough, Ontario, Canada, possibly heading northerly on route 115. Conditions: Daytime, low dark clouds, flat land on left side of highway leading to distant hill top of which seemed above the clouds. No sunlight visible. Window of car rolled down -no reflections possible. I was not wearing sun glasses. As I was gazing at this scenery a dark object came down out of the dark cloud, leveled off and shot up through the cloud. It's shape was of the inverted saucer on top of another saucer type. No rudder or wings visible and silent. I shouted to my friend who was from Petersborough, Canada to look. I don't think he saw it as he wore rather thick glasses and had never driven a car. I would judge the distance from us to the object with the hill in the background to be not more than one mile. I had been in and out of the marines twice. Had observed dive bombings along the western shore of the Red Sea and straffing and bombing in Korea, all these planed clearly had wings and rudders as well as very audible engines.
