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.
