Location: Atlanta, GA
Shape: Disk
Duration:15 minutes
A saucer shaped ship was seen from about 50 yards away. It hovered.

That evening I saw bright lights in my window through closed dark curtains. I opened the curtains to view a perfect flying saucer. It was shinny, like seemless stainless stell, or chrome. It was still daylight, so it was crystal clear, and a beautiful day. It was approaching dusk, so the light was perfect.

The ship hovered directly over my neighbors house, which was directly across the street. It had round or oval lights runninig around the bottom, and a blue mist drifting from the center bottom area. This was daylight so the blue light was only clearly visible when it moved up, and away.

When I saw the disk I stood inshock for a minute, but then I ran into my parent's room (wher they were laying with my little sister with them watching TV) and screamed to them to come look. When we opened the front door the ship was still above the neighbor's home, but started to move east after a 30 second viewing by my 3 other shocked witnesses.

It took off West, but then zoomed striaght up at dramatic speeds, and then zig zagged off onto the horizon.

It was silent.
