Shape: Disk
Duration:5 minutes
Red and white or white and red running lights.

I'm from Hamilton, Ontario. At the time, I was living on the west end mountain. In the mid 70'S on a hot August summer night, I opened my back door of my house. At the time, the airport had a curfew around ten or eleven pm. I noticed what I thought was a plane but it was past the curfew. I took a double look thinking it was moving but it was sitting in mid air. The reason I noticed the thing in the first place was the running lights. The running lights were two colors red and white. They ran around the edge of the ship .

The UFO was no more than hundred yards away and about forty feet off the ground. I could see the shape of the ship without any mistake what it was. The ship tilted down slightly on its right side and started to move sideways for a city block or so and stopped. I don't know if I felt something in the air or if I saw the thing about to take off but the ship from a sitting position it took off in a blink of an eye. My question I have always thought was that made by human's or was that alien made? If you ever have chance to look at an u-tube video from 2011 of a UFO on a back a flat bed tuck, pretty much the some ship.

Thank You
