“It was pulsing yellow light, moved a short distance west, hovered again, and then traversed west,” the reporting witness stated. “It was utterly silent.”

The witness immediately ran inside to grab an iPhone 8 and shot some photos.

A California witness at San Francisco recalled an encounter with a hovering, football-shaped object at 12:15 p.m. on June 15, 1956, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

The witness was working at Bethlehem Steel shipyard at 20th Street off Third Street in San Francisco and was at lunchtime. It was a clear cloudless day. The incident date is approximate.

“I happened to lean back and look straight up and saw the object from directly below,” the reporting witness stated. “It was silver, metallic, maybe a little thinner than a football and the ends were sharp points.”

The witness said the object’s lines were not fuzzy but well-defined and sharp. The object was so high, that the witness felt that if you took your eyes off it for a second, you might not be able to find it again.

“Three other people with me did not see it, but I could understand why. The object was moving from west to east. There was no sound. It became too small to see at about 45 to 35 degrees to the horizon.”

The report included no images, filed on April 15, 2000. Witness quotes were edited for clarity.
