Lake Ozark UFO sighting 1960's

I've never told this before to anyone. For more details you can contact me...but to describe what I saw I'll make it brief.

Myself and about four other cousins where sitting in the back of my parents car at about 11:00 pm CDT in early summer. We were staying in a little concrete cabin built by our grandfather. This was a time when nothing was built around us. Lake Ozark at its beginning. Sam began reading from a book from flashlight I looked out my back passenger window to see a very large cigar shaped object come over the hill across the cove. It was, to my best guess about 5,000 ft.. It made no sound, and it had several bands of different colored lights rotating around it. It was moving at a slow speed and I wanted to tell everyone in the car to look.

To my surprise.. I couldn't say a thing...and just watched the thing drift over the next hill. I guarantee you it was NOT a balloon. It had a motion of direction and a lot faster than the wind!

Come to find out..the old settler that has been there for years had built a landing sight in the woods near us for these little fellows as he called them.

Everyone thought he had lost it living in the woods as long as he had. I did see the concrete landing pods he made and to this day I'll bet there still there.
