Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Round, saucer shaped with a slightly offset bottom section (a little smaller than the main body). It was a dark color, I don't know which because it was a rather dark night. It had softly glowing, undulating , multicolored lights toward the bottom at what must have been the back of the sphere (propelling the thing I guess ) .
Size of Object(s)
Looked to be about 250 ft in diameter and about 60 ft. high.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
It was about 100-150 feet above my head.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Rural area nestled between mountains in Eastern Kentucky. There is a regional power grid not too far away.
Full Description & Details
I was 15 at the time and was poling a boat down the Eastern fork of the Kentucky river late at night looking for a good fishing spot. I heard a soft humming sound overhead and looked up. About 100 feet above my head was a huge round object with dim multicolored lights at its bottom toward the back. It hovered there above my head for about 30 seconds and then shot at an unbelievable speed across the mountain in the distance (about 2 miles). It covered the space in about 3 seconds. I poled the boat to the shore and ran home without stopping (about 2 miles). Remember it as plain today as then although I am almost 56 years old. Believe it folks. They are out there.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Definitely not man made. They didn't have anything that could come close in 1957. The sky was crystal clear, no fog. Object was very, very close and scary.
I work in telecommunications at a major large city hospital in Kentucky. I have a degree in Electronics and am certified in Biomedical technology.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I don't spend a lot of time reading about ufo's. I am satisfied in my mind they are real and I believe some day we will all know what is was that I saw.
