Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Silver/Gray shaped disc with a dome top. Dome top had, what looked liked, arch shaped, tinted windows around it. Red lights surrounded the perimeter of the disc and flashed in a synchronized fashion, going around and around, flashing one right after the other. It was well lit from it's lights or from the moon....not sure which. It hummed softly as it hovered above us. The object I saw was very similar to the drawing submitted by the individual in Paris, TN.
Size of Object(s)
It was no tall but wide. Probably as wide as my grandparent's house.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
Roof level - altitude and about 20 ft in front of me.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Rural area on top of a hill. Not sure about military bases or power plants.
Full Description & Details
This event was amazing and I feel lucky to have witnessed it. That's how I view it now, although, I had no idea what I was witnessing at the time and had never heard of UFO's. I was 13 years old, my sister was 10. We were laying in bed, goofing around not wanting to sleep. Our bedroom was on the 3rd story of my grandparent's house which was located at the top of a hill in a rural area of Jeanette, PA. It was a hot, humid night. The windows of our bedroom were open. Our grandparents were outside, in front of their house, preparing their motorhome for overnight guests arriving the following day. My grandmother yelled up to us from the yard. She said, "Dee-Dee, Dee-Dee look outside the window". I went to the window and looked down to where I knew she was working. Standing in front of the motorhome, she pointed upward, toward the sky, and to the side of the house and said, "Look out the other window!!!" My sister and I went to the only other window in the room. Hovering right above roof level (right above this widow and out about 20 ft) was a large disc-shaped saucer. It was silver/gray in color with a domed top. The dome had, what looked like, arched shaped, darkly tinted windows around it. Red, round-shaped lights flashed in a synchronized pattern around its perimeter, flashing around and around and around. It hummed ever so softly. That is the only noise I heard. It hovered for about 30 seconds and then with a white streak of light it vanished, stopping in the far distance, hovered again, and then dropped down out of my sight into a nearby valley.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Not unless we have the ability to travel at the speed of light with very little sound. I saw this object up close and it is not anything I've ever seen before.
