Shape: Other
Duration:35 minutes
WE SAW A QUARTER MOON SHAPED, CREAM COLORED GLOW WITH WHITE PORTHOLE LIGHTS ON BOTH SIDES

THIS SHIP OR WHATEVER, MADE NO SOUND EXCEPT FOR A FAINT RUSHING OF WIND THROUGH WIRES.

IT MOVED SLIGHTLY NORTH ON EVERY CIRCLE APPROXIMATELY ONE HALF A MILE. AS IT CIRCLED FROM EAST TO WEST, A LARGE AND VERY BRIGHT SPOTLIGHT CAME DIRECTLY POINTED SOUTHWARD. THIS WAS WATCHED THROUGH BINOCULARS 10 POWER FOR APPROXIMATELY 35 MINUTES, BUT AFTER THE FIRST 5 TO 8 MINUTES YOU COULD ONLY OBSERVE THE BRILLIANT SPOTLIGHT.

AFTER WATCHING FOR THE FIRST 3 MINUTES, I RAN INSIDE AND CALLED KLAMATH FALLS ARMY AIR FORCE AND NOTIFIED THEM OF THIS SHIP. THEY SAID THEY WOULD SEND A JET TO LOOK IT OVER. APPROXIMATELY 16 MINUTES LATER A JET FLEW AT ABOUT 3,000 FEET OVERHEAD TOWARDS LAKEVIEW, OREGON, BUT BY THIS TIME THE SHIP WAS ABOUT 15 MILES DUE NORTH OF US BUT AT THAT ALTITUDE I DON'T SEE HOW THE PILOT COULD MISS THE SPOTLIGHT NORTH OF HIM.

I NEVER HEARD FROM THE AIRBASE AFTER THAT.

THE ONLY WITNESSES WERE MS. AND MRS ((names deleted)) AND MY WIFE AND MYSELF.

THIS WAS DEFINITELY AN AIRSHIP OF SOME KIND.
