Appearance / Description of Object(s)
the object was as I described it. A long fifty feet? or so round tapered at both ends in the manner of a cigar. It was apparently silent although the distance it was from us could not be determined . the sky was still quite light as the sun had not yet set.I cannot remember what season it was but I seem to have a feeling of late summer to autumn as I had been to school and had gone down to the cow bail after I arrived home on the school bus.

ABOUT FIFTY FEET LONG AND TEN TO TWELVE FEET IN DIAMETER
Description of Area / Surroundings
THE AREA WASA RURAL SURROUNDING PASTURE LAND AND SCATTERED TREES AND HEDGES
Full Description & Details
When I was a a young boy my family had a small dairy farm in the Manawatu district.One evening just on dusk as my parants were milking cows and I was waiting at the cow yard a long cigar shaped object appeared above a line of trees to the east of our position.The object was all aglow with a bright orange light and commenced to move back and forth along the line of trees.At the same time it varied altitude by apparently several hundred feet,although this is difficult to determine as we did not know what our relative distance to the object was.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
