|Grey disk flying over Hickam AFB.
I was walking from my car to my dorm room on Hickam AFB. It was a sunny day not a cloud was in the sky.
I happened to look up at an airplane that was maybe 20000 to 30000 feet in the air traveling west to east. A few moments later while still looking at the airplane, I noticed a disk shaped object traveling perpendicular to the airplane, but at a much lower altitude, perhaps 800 to 1500 feet.
This object passed almost directly overhead and moved in a straight line and level altitude. My guess is this object was 10 to 20 feet in diameter and grey in color.
I observed this object for maybe 20 seconds before walking inside the dormitory. I must admit becoming a little scared.
When I returned from lunch I told my supervisor what I saw, he speculated the object was a low altitude satellite.
((NUFORC Note: Source of report indicates that the date of the incident is approximate. We doubt that a "low altitude satellite" would be visible during daylight. We disagree with the assessment apparently made by the supervisor. PD))
