Location: Columbia, MO
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:30 seconds
In June of 2006 I was in the front yard of my home and looked up and saw, at a low altitude, what appeared to be only the glistening aluminum fuselage of a plane. It was much lower than a large passenger plane or blimp. No sound was heard. It was low enough that I should have been able to see wings, tail and windows but I saw nothing. The sun was shining directly on the object. It saw it twice in June, each time it was around 7:30 (19:30 hrs). It was in view each time about 30 seconds. The direction of travel was SW to NE. There was no way to tell how big it was except that it appeared to be about a half an inch at arms length.

We have one airport, Regional. The runway does not accomodate large planes. Planes traveling across Missouri are always at a higher altitude than this object was. Small 2 or 4 seater planes fly over at a lower altitude and it is always easy to see detail such as wings, tail and registration numbers. The engine noise is audible as well.

I saw this object again on July 4th, 2006. See that report on NUFORC website.

I have no idea what I saw nor can I guess. I just offer this report up as another oddity of this haunted planet.
