This happened quite awhile back and I never reported it, but with all the attention recently, I tell people I think I saw one, and they keep telling me I should report it.

My family and a few friends were camping on the Cheat Lake in the summer of the late 1970S It had to be around July 1, do not know the exact date. I was down by the lake when I saw what I thought was a shooting star, but as I watched it,it stoped. I was puzzled because a shooting star doesnt just stop in mid air.

As I watched it turned into a round glow and started moving very slowly toward us. When it was streaking like a star it seems very far away, but when it turned into this glow it seemed to be very close very fast, althought it seemed to be moving very slow. I was so stunned I ran to the boat dock and started yelling for everyone to come and see this.

Then 2 of my sons came running down as the craft started to have pulsating lights that were rotating around the craft. It stayed! there for a few minutes and then started to move away, when it started to move it turned into the white glow again. then it was gone. There was no sound.
