My mom called me out from where I was inside the house, telling me to come quick. She said that my dad had seen something before it went into the trees around 11:24AM. He'd gone back into to get some binoculars, while my mom and I were left to find what he had seen in the sky.

When my eyes came upon it, it appeared in intervals between blue sky and the craft, it seemed to flash. At the time of day it seemed impossible for there to be flashing lights on an object near to the height of the day. The object seemed to give off a coppery, or bronze, appearance from our distance; it flew at the altitude ofor maybe a mile or a mile and a half. Upon being handed the binoculars to see it better, it hardly seemed to help, but I managed to clarify the view.

The object was round, I claimed it had an odd light-bulb shape, as it seemed bigger on top than the bottom. My dad claimed it some It also seemed to "flash" or reflect in the sunlight, though it only kept in a straight line; moving from North West to South West. It remained its coppery, or bronze, color through the time we saw it until our view was obscured by trees.
