Duration:1 minute
aluminum-type disk with hump

I was sitting on my folding chair watering the lawn on the eastern side of my home. July, August, and September were very dry months so I was watering the grass. As I sat there, an AF passenger Jet flew by heading towards Wright Patterson AFB. The Jet was painted pure white so I assume it was an AF air ambulance. It was at about 3000 feet altitude heading slowly towards the base. I watched it for a long time until it became a small spot as it neared the base. My eyes and sight then returned back to the spot where I first saw the AF Jet. Then I noticed a circular disk hovering above the path and displaced somewhat to the south from the path the AF Jet followed towards WPAFB. Perhaps at an altitude of 5000 feet and 1000 feet to the south. This disk was only about 40 feet wide but it was thick and the edges were very rounded. It appeared to be metallic and aluminum-like. There was a disk-like hump in the middle of and on top of the thick bottom disk. And this disk had very w! ell rounded edges also. This whole structure was pitched down at an angle of sixty degrees as if it had been viewing the AF Jet that flew by. Now here is the kicker about this craft. I could not see the rear portion of this craft because it seemed to be hidden by the sky. This craft seemed to coming through a hole in the sky and I could not see the rear of this craft. As I watched it I said to myself “ this is interesting.” Then after awhile, it appeared that the craft moved back into the hole in the sky. I could not see it anymore. I then watched this position in the sky for a long time but the craft did not reappear.
