|2 reports - UFO over Yuma 1997 and UFO at Cape Kennedy 1960's.
I lived in the foothills of Yuma, Arizona and one evening in March of 1997 (approximately 2 weeks after "The Phoenix Lights" ) I saw what looked like a disco ball, with multi-colored glittering lights. It silently floated northbound in a straight line (not descending) as I gazed east toward the Gila Mountains. It was a few degrees above the mountain ridge and about the size and brightness of the moon (when the moon is high - not it's just risen appearance) Unfortunately, buildings & trees blocked my full field of vision so I didn't get to see where it went. I watched it for about 30 seconds.
Also, another UFO incident I know was when I was a child. My father worked at Cape Kennedy (in Data processing and died in 1969) came home all excited (a very stoic man) and said something came up to one of our unmanned rockets right after it launched and like a mosquito to a man (UFO to the rocket) and checked it out at many angels and then flew off in a blink of the eye. I'm guessing this was during the Gemini missions.
