GLIDING OBJECT CHANGED SHAPE FROM BOOMERANG TO OVAL SHAPE AND BACK TO BOOMERANG

ON 3-8-01, THURSDAY EVENING, AT 9:15, MY FRIEND AND I SAW AN UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECT IN THE NORTHWEST SKY AND MOVING NORTHBOUND. THE OBJECT WAS A PERFECTLY SHAPED BOOMERANG AND A FAT ONE, AT THAT, BECAUSE IT HAD DISTINCT MASS AND THICKNESS TO IT. THE COLOR OF THIS OBJECT WAS A YELLOWISH WHITE, MORE ON THE WHITE SIDE. MY FRIEND SUGGESTED THAT IT WAS TRANSLUCENT. AT ONE TIME DURING ITS FLIGHT, IT APPEARED TO CHANGE ITS SHAPE FROM A SOLID BOOMERANG TO AN OVAL SHAPE, AND THEN BACK TO A BOOMERANG. WHILE CHANGING SHAPE, IT SEEMED TO BE MOVING WITHIN ITSELF, MUCH LIKE PLASMA OR A JELLY-LIKE SUBSTANCE WOULD BEHAVE. THE OBJECT WAS ABOUT 1/4 THE SIZE OF A FULL MOON, AND I REMEMBER IT NEARLY WAS A FULL MOON THAT NIGHT. IT WAS AT A 60 DEGREE ANGLE IN THE SKY RELATIVE TO MY POSITION ON THE HORIZONTAL GROUND. IT REMAINED IN OUR SIGHT FOR 25 TO 30 SECONDS. DURING THAT ELAPSED TIME, IT COVERED A 70 DEGREE ANGLE IN THE SKY, AS DETERMINED FROM MY OUTSTRETCHED ARMS, UNTIL IT DISAPPEARED FROM OUR SIGHT OVER THE HORIZON. THIS OBJEACT TRAVELED ON A CONTINUOUS AND STEADY HORIZONTAL COURSE, AND WAS MOVING QUITE RAPIDLY. OBJECT SEEMED TO "GLIDE" ACROSS THE SKY, MOVING EFFORTLESSLY. WE HEARD NO NOISE WHATSOEVER. JUST AFTER THIS INCIDENT, MY FRIEND AND I QUICKLY RULED OOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF BIRDS FLYING. THIS OBJECT MOVED AND BEHAVED LIKE NO AIRCRAFT I HAVE EVER SEEN. AGAIN, IT GLIDED ACROSS THE SKY, AND CHANGED SHAPE. MR. DAVENPORT, I WILL FOLLOW UP BY SENDING YOU A HARD LETTER VIA MAIL AND THEREBY PROVIDE YOU WITH A DETAILED DRAWING OF THE OBJECT.
