Disk Shaped Object Over The City Of Chicago

Disk Shaped Object Over The City Of Chicago

Date: June 17, 1961

Location: Chicago, IL

It was around 7:00 p.m. on a summers evening when I, my Mother, Father, & 2 brothers saw a disk shaped object in the sky.

I would say it was about 300' above us, it had lights around the outer rim, which were red & green and flashing.

It maintained a motionless station in the sky as we continued to observe it.

I got the impression someone was looking down on us, I was 15 years of age at that time.

After about 5 minutes it first moved off slowly traveling in a north easterly direction heading out over lake Michigan.

hen it sped up in a flash and was out of sight in a matter of a couple of seconds.

The most interesting fact I recall about that day is that after the sighting was completed none of my family members discussed what we saw.

Everyone went back to what ever it was they were doing as if it never happened.

My father still lives in Chicago at this time at the age of 83 and my brother's are now in their 50s, I am 57, my mother passed in 1967.

Now this is going to sound strange, the next time I saw the almost exact same object was in the movie Close Encounters of The Third Kind.

What we saw on that day looked just liked the first spaceship which first came over the landing area in that movie.
