Sighting Report
Occurred : 7/10/1963 20:00 (Entered as : 07/10/1963 20:00)
Reported: 10/18/2003 8:49:54 AM 08:49
Posted: 10/31/2003
Location: Evanston, IL
Shape: Disk
Duration:5-7 minutes
We watched the saucer with lights for five minutes as it remained stationary above us at about a 45 degree angle.

The saucer was observed in a stationary position high in the sky. It appeared to be approximately one inch in diameter at arms length. A very clear night at dusk with the sun down in the west and night approaching in the east. The craft had lights circling the perimeter with no apparent consistency. One followed by three followed by two followed by one and so on.

The craft stayed in one place for maybe three minutes and then began moving at a constant speed. It traveled at a speed that allowed it to remain just as clear as it appeared when not moving. It traveled some distance but I can not make a sound judgement as to that amount.

It returned to the near vicinity of the first sighting and then turned ninety degrees and went over the houses and out of sight. Entire viewing was somewhere around five minutes.
