Cigar shaped UFO sighted while fishing.

I was fishing on the lake on the Washington County Conservation Center near Nashville Illinois with a friend.

Some time in the early afternoon probably about 1:00 PM I heard what I thought was jet noise and looked up. There was a long narrow object silver in color with what appeared to be windows. However there appeared to be no wings or tail. I would describe this as a long cigar shape. It seemed longer than most jet liner fuselages.

I proceeded to rationalize this away thinking that I could just not see the wings. I thought that the lighting made them blend against the sky. For that reason I did not tell my friend about it. I looked at it for only a few minutes.

I since have thought about it and realized that I would have seen any wings.

The sun was high in the sky and I would have seen the shaded bottom of the wings not to mention the engines. Also there are two major airports near the area. So jet noise is common.

Background: I am 67 and retired. I spent most of my life in the retail business dealing with all kinds of people. I was also a part time photographer and avid amateur photographer. My hobbies also include art and bird watching.

I have three previous sightings but I don’t look for UFO’s. I also have some other history, but don’t wish to discuss that here.

Note I wrote Filer on this also, but may have given the wrong date.

((NUFORC Note: The witness apparently has had a number of sightings during his lifetime. PD))
