Duration:1 Hr 30 Min
object hovered, landed then left headed north traveling at 60Kmph, being tracked across USA by several radar sites.

I have several copies of newspaper clippings scanned into a PDF file that describe the event. It first appeared on the west coast and was reported to be a "fire ball".

It crossed the USA in three minutes. Observed and tracked by radar, it headed towards Plattsburg AFB. It came to a stop above the trees about 1/2 mile north of our house. Colored lights rotated around the sides of the object. Then it landed. Police and firemen arrived to rescue possible crashed flyers. Bad weather and a swollen creek prevented immediate access to the site. Object arose back above the trees after an hour and a half. Made a 90 turn and left in a northly direction. Newspaper report from town near Canadian border mentions residents seeing it's departure.
