Shape: Circle
Duration:20 minutes
There were lights on the object, hovering, sparks flying, spinning in two different directions at the same time.

When I was in Bootcamp in the United States Navy in July 1963, we were all in a big dorm room and it was approximately 9-10 p.m. When we noticed out the window a craft of some sort that was hovering just above the barracks. It was like a round circle, it was spinning in two different directions at the same time. Everyone ran to the windows to see it. Then the company Commander told everybody to get away from the windows, and closed the blinds so we could not see it any longer. I have the names of every man that witnessed this with me in my Graduation Book from Bootcamp. I would like to know if anyone else has filed this report? Thank you. ((initials deleted))
