Summary : Craft (typical saucer style] appeared low over bldgs., sonic boom from jet from airforce base 45 mi. away. Craft went straight up and out of sight. Jet left and as dark approached 13 crafts played in sky for many hours entering and disappearing into a cigar shaped craft. Hundreds watched and photographed. I was next to the campus cop and heard all the reports coming in on his radio from in and around the area. The local paper reported this event and nothing else that I know of ever happened. It has left many questions over the years. Question ! Has this ever been reported?

Saucer craft with rotating lights.
