National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 10/8/1972 18:45 (Entered as : 10/08/72 18:45)
Reported: 7/23/2008 8:39:43 PM 20:39
Posted: 8/12/2008
Location: Eatonton, GA
Shape: Disk
Duration: Unknown
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Craft had lighted panels which lit one at a time travelling counter-clockwise.

Craft was hovering about 60 feet from ground; above tops of pine trees. Disc shaped craft was a dull metal coloring (silver) and seemed to have panels (square in shape) along the entire circumference of the craft which lit, one after the other in a continuing pattern that repeated all the way around the base of the craft. Each panel was lit for well under a second of time before the panel next to it lit. Only one panel at a time would light. The light pattern moved in a counter-clockwise direction seemingly all the way around the craft continuously. There was no sound from this object.

My sister and I watched this in awe for an undetermined length of time before it took off from a virtual standstill at a high rate of speed. We were in a car and tried to catch up with and locate this craft but could not find it again.
