THE OBJECT I SAW Shape Oval Oct 8, 2008 Around 12:00 noon Chester, Arkansas

I was in my backyard working on my hen house. I had been out there for a couple of hours. As I was walking over to pick up a hammer, I noticed my hens were looking at the sky.

I turned to look at what had caught their attention. I stared at this object, at about 2:00 clock on the horizon, just above treetop level. The sun was above my head. The object was Oval shaped, and very shiny. It seemed strange to me. It had no tail, wings or windows. It almost glowed. I could make out the reflection on this craft from the sun’s light. One end would be shining more than the other end, as it pitched and dipped.

It appeared to be a craft in trouble. I compared it with a large tree in my yard, that it had just passed over. It was about ¼ the size of the treetop. This tree is a 200+ year old oak. It was so close, yet never made a sound. It vanished behind the trees and out of view. I felt ‘strange’ afterwards. I went back to work building. I have drawn the object that I saw below. It looked very metallic.

I’m sending the image in a separate email. Thank you.
