Dear Mr. ((name deleted))

Thank you very much for the interesting report!

We would like to know more about what it was you witnessed this evening. You describe it as an oval, but there are many objects that could fit that description. Was it self-luminous, for example, or was it dark, or unlighted?

What was its size, relative to a full moon, or the disc of the sun, for example? Any color to it?

Thank you for sharing the information with our Center!

Cordially,

Peter Davenport

It was self-luminous. The clouds reflected its glow as it passed by and thru the clouds on its departure. Estimate size is difficult as we are all still sicky-feeling. Guesstimate size baseballl if held at armslength. Very white, not colored, possibly goldish.Casual in its display, then moved on to other
places things. In command, not worried that we see it. We are all very quiet now. This party is over and the girls won't go home now because they are afraid. We're all around fifty years old, we know better. Nobody is saying ((deleted)) to anybody else. Took us awhile to think up netting you with a message. Oh well, another day on planet earth.
