UFO Sighting Report




crookston, Minnesota, United States


I was in junior high but maybe senior high school and was caddying for a golfer when I saw it rather high on a clear day as I remember it so date could have been as early as 1946 and as late as 1949 0r even 1950.

Date Reported:

1/10/2006 9:00:43 AM

Sighting Time: 




No. of Witnesses: 

just me


minute or so

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

No lights. No noise. No vapor trail. Shape and color as mentioned above. If I held a quarter above my head that would give you approximate distance. So it was high, but not so high that I could see the definate rotation. Do not recall any markings on it. Just silver in color.

Size of Object(s)

I imagine my hand would have covered it if I held it up.Maybe and inch or two acrossfrom my position. Couldn`t guess at size as don`t know how high it was. Probably could have covered it with my hand if I raised my arm. Hard to tell actual size as was quite high but if I had to guess, maybe 30 feet or more wide? Again would have looked maybe about the size of a quarter if I held it at arms length.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

See above. Not nearly as high as a jet today.

Description of Area / Surroundings

golf course on edge of town. Crookston is about 8000 people.

Full Description & Details

We were walking south as was the direction of the saucer. It was silver in color and rotating. The shape I saw was like that of a quarter sitting on a table. I didn`t know the person I was caddying for and was too afraid to tell him to look as worried he wouldn`t see it and become angry at me for caddys were to be quiet and not bother golfer but just carry his clubs etc. I also would have been embarassed if he didn`t see it. Maybe there were a few clouds, I just can`t remember.

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

Don`t even know if I had heard of flying saucers at that time but it definately was not a "natural" object nor an airplane,satellite, blimb or balloon etc. It was a flying silver rotating disc.

Witness Background

College degree. Accountant and insurance agent. Retired.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
