Disclaimer: I have a vivid imagination. That could be an understatement. Nonetheless, I have never doubted what I saw outside of my bedroom window in the summer of 1978. I remember hearing something outside (the window was open), an oscillating sound and when I got out of my bed and peeked outside, this is a quick rendering of what I believed I saw.

It looked like a theme park ride, floating in the sky. There was cylindrical center and a ring slowly spinning and moving up and down the cylinder. That movement seemed to create the oscillating sound that awakened me from my sleep. There were lights patterned around all parts of it, some like windows. The lights gave the object a hazy like glow. If I had to guess, it was about seventy-five feet in height and twenty-five feet in its widest point – the ring. After a few seconds it quickly moved away, without the air-moving thrust of rocket propulsion or any clues that it operated completely within classical physics.

I’m not sure if I told anyone about it. I was certain at the time that I saw it. It was because I had such vivid dreams and an untamed imagination, I just went on living in a world I could draw clearer conclusions with. I stayed in a Newtonian fashioned, mechanical world and my only disagreement with such a world would come once I began reading about Einstein, Niels Bohr, Erwin Schrödinger and others that attempted to tackle the quantum world.

What is written in the sketch –

This is the shape of the spaceship I saw

The outer ring went up and down along the cylinder.
