Shape: Oval
Duration:2 min
My step-father and I were drining a coffee of coffee on our porch, waiting for my mother to get home from work...it was still daylight EST and we could see everything very well. Suddenly, an oval shaped craft came down, out of nowhere, and hovered above the ground, about 1 foot off the ground. This was about 50 feet from where we were sitting on our porch, and acroos a dirt road, in a cow pasture. The craft just hovered there for about 2 minutes, we were silent and just watched it. There was a slight humming noise coming from the craft, there were no windows, that we could see.

This craft was about 5 to 6 feet in lenght, it was domed from the middle to the "back" end of it...the other end was aerodynamic...seems to me that it must have been at least 3 to 4 feet in width...maybe two beings could have occupied it. Also, it was metallic in color, look like it may have been stainless steel. After it hovered there for about 2 minutes, it slowly rised and then took off at such a speed that it was over the ocean and out of sight in just seconds. I have told some friends about this, and they all seem to believe me, but I always get the idea they it really scares them that I saw this craft. I think I have the approximate time and dates correct, I was 16 yrs. old when I saw this with my step-father, and I know that he only talked to me about this, and no one else.

((NUFORC Note: Date may be approximate, although the witness does not indicate that fact. PD))
