Full Description & Details

My first thought was that this object was a weather balloon. (Told later by reliable individuals that Geneva, nor Lausanne ever had any weather balloons then-or before.)

The object ,with the naked eye AND through binoculars, was of a floating extraordinarily large piece of STAINLESS STEEL-TYPE METAL . It's shape appeared

KNIFE-LIKE from my vantage point.

On that night, the skies were clear;no clouds. At that time, there were no lights in homes or buildings around perimiter of the lake which might have created distortion and glare.

Witness Background

New Yorker ; liived in Switzerland from 1970 to mid-1974. Home at lakeside mid-way between Geneva and Lausanne. at first sighting I thought it must be an airplane coming in to Geneva's airport; realized with shock that it did not move or have ANY sound (as in engines). And~ airport did not open until 6:00 a.m. Many of my neighbors were not at all surprised when I questioned them. They said that there were, constantly, reports from pilots about "UFO's".
