Shape: Oval
Duration:3 minutes
UFO witnessed by skeptical man and nephew in Northwest.

The object was an off-white oval, about 500- 600 feet in the air. It was located in the Southern sky. The object emitted a tinsel/foil-colored flash, almost as if to catch attention. The object was witnessed by 12 year old nephew and husband. When flash was over, there were no visible lights on craft. This happened in BROAD DAYLIGHT! Husband was in Air force and worked at airports and initially thought the flash was the reflection from a plane turning… But it was not turning… And there were no wings. Then he thought it could be a Citation plane because of the color, but a Citation, after turning, would look like a “T”…Not an oval. The object hovered for about 3 minutes, and then proceeded to take off toward the south, faster than anything possible of known technology. The object just appeared to shrink away into nothing faster than a second.

The object may have emitted something that would calm an individual as nephew and husband carried on as if nothing happened, and muscles felt extremely relaxed. It was only after an hour that the two realized they saw something extraordinary.

Husband is extremely skeptical and still will not say, "Extraterrestrial", but he will say that he now has witnessed an intelligently-controlled vehicle going faster than the sound barrier without creating a sonic boom or a need to protect individuals inside from excessive g-forces...And can travel at what he estimated to be thousands of miles within seconds! He is shaken that he and our nephew felt the extreme muscle relaxation and almost indifference right after the object took off, only to feel the significance of the situation an hour or so after.
