Space craft of some type

Daytime

No. of Witnesses: 

Several, see below

Duration: 

maybe one minute

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Bright silver objects

Size of Object(s)

As an artist comparing distance, I would say about 20 feet long and in the center of each craft maybe at the most 15 feet high but they were elongated oval.I would not say they were extremely bright but they were shiny, chrome/silver color. There were NO openings that I could see but then I perceived them to be a long distance West of my position.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Don't know, I think maybe a mile, maybe more.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Just west of Grand Island, Nebraska, then a town of about 35,000 people. They were well above trees, it was in the edge of the town and over Grand Island's busiest road, Highway 30. There is a military ammunition base just west of this area, I think the base is 5 miles west of Grand Island but by the time I saw these flying objects that army ammo plant had been closed for about 10 years except for people who oversee the grounds.

Full Description & Details

West of Grand Island, Nebraska.

Turned right from Highway 281 onto Highway 30. It was afternoon, don't know what time

Silver oval shaped/elongated oval shaped silver craft above the highway 30 West. There were several of them, maybe 7 or 8, did not stop to count them. I was so scared I turned around and headed for my mother's house in Grand Island. I believe in UFO's, but I wasn't wanting to be a victim of a chain of them. They were positioned in a straight line North to South and did not appear to be in flight.

A few days later a report came out in the newspaper called The Grand Island Independent. Many people reported the same thing I saw. There was no register on radar (at a local airport) so they said it was atmospheric pressure creating a hallucination. I can promise that these were not hallucinations.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

NO. If there was ONE I would say it was a silver blimp in the horizon but there were several of them. The Grand Island Independent newspaper said that several people reported the same sighting.

Witness Background

When I saw the UFO's I was a nurse. I am retired now and own my own business, I am a pianist and teach piano, I own a studio.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Always believed in UFO's before and after. I knew a lot about them, always was interested in them

Other Comments

When I saw the space-craft I was so afraid of them I turned back to Grand Island and immediately went to my mother's house. I knew in my heart they were UFO's, but I didn't want them to know me!

I wonder/think that you could contact the news at Grand Island Nebraska/ The Grand Island Independent Newspaper and have them look in the archives. I could be wrong about the date but I know it was between 1979 and 1983.
