granite city IL ufo sighting.

my mother and i seen this thing many years ago, but what im trying to do is find out if anyone in my area at that time seen this thing also. i am SURE others had to of seen it. it was a white, saucer shaped craft, no more than 1000 feet off the ground, it had white lights around the bottom of it, it was amazing! i watched this thing hover with no movement for about 15 or 20 seconds and then it dissapeared before my eyes. if anyone in the granite city IL area seen this thing in the early 80s please e mail me and tell me about it.
