UFO Sighting Report

Date:

1973

Spokane, WA, Washington, United States

Summary:

From the golf course clubhouse restaurant. Four to five of us were sitting together having a mid afternoon snack after a golf class. Someone said, "Look at that!" We all watched a "craft" move along at our eyesight. It was moving so slowly it was hard to understand how it stayed aloft.

Full Description & Details

To me the craft had a shape somewhat like a metallic rounded nose short bullet of apx. The size of a large pickup truck. It was trailing a long crystal blue flame apx five times the length of the object. Again it seemed odd how slow it was going. Possibly four or less football fields away and two to three football fields in altitude, but the clubhouse was at the same elevation. The golf course steeply dropped away from our location and flowed into two separate valleys comprising the front and back nine. We parted without discussion.

That evening it was reported on local TV News as a UFO reported by the Spokane International Airport. A few days later a small 2 inch article in the local Spokane newspaper, buried apx. page four, and reported by the Fairchild Air Force Base (where my husband was a pilot) as a UFO.

The following week the class was together again and we discussed it for the first time. Several people had quite different remembrances of what it looked like and so a few got very angry and we never discussed it again.

I made a cursory attempt to research this recently from the TV and paper but it was pre-Internet and I wasn't sure of the year or date. If I requested my transcript from Spokane Falls Community College I could pinpoint it better, but I'm not sure if anyone cares enough for me to bother. I was wondering if any of my classmates reported this.

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

See above reporting by Spokane International Airport and Fairchild AFB.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Previously very little thought. Post a great deal of thought.

Other Comments

I felt the different memories may be due to some sort of cloaking, which explained to me why there are so many conflicting reports.
