A Giant, Three-Level Craft on Fourth of July.

I am sure of the day, but not the year. It was Fourth of July in early afternoon.

I went into my large backyard and happened to glance up. The sky was bright blue and small white clouds were traveling northward. There was one large cloud to the near northwest that was the same color as the rest, moving (sort of bubbling in place but not changing position in the sky). The smaller clouds were moving past it, above and below. Then I realized that the large, stationary cloud was mostly concealing an enormous craft. I noticed it because most of it was concealed by the cloud, except for the front and about 4 or 5 dark openings.

The color of the craft was a pale, washed-out gray.

From my vantage point, I couldn’t tell whether I was seeing a side view of a disc or of a cigar-shaped object. The overall effect was like seeing the nose of a cruise ship peeking out of a cloud.

The structure I could observe resembled a 3-layer cake. The top layer was the smallest and had no openings. The second layer was larger and wider, and had about 4 or 5 dark, vertically rectangular openings, being a bit wider at the bottom. The rest were concealed by the cloud. The third layer was still larger and had no openings that I could see.

I don’t know how big the craft was but judging from what I saw, it must have been hundreds of feet across.

I have never doubted life beyond that on Earth, so the sight didn’t much affect me. I went back in the house, came out again five minutes later and it was still there. It was gone about twenty minutes after that. I should have had the presence of mind to photograph it.

I have told my wife and two other people about this. I think it makes them uncomfortable.
