UFO Sighting in Atlanta, Illinois on June 30th 1970 – I was babysitting at a farm. I went outside and saw it hovering just over the cornfield, just beneath the treetops. I ran out to get a closer look. It was a huge saucer. As I approached, it started smoothly and very slowly away from me over the cornfield.

I was babysitting at a farm. The child went Dow for her nap. I went outside and saw it hovering just over the cornfield, just beneath the treetops. I ran out to get a closer look. I was very excited about the possibility of it being a spacecraft. It was a huge saucer. As I got close to the field, it started moving smoothly and very slowly away from me over the cornfield without gaining altitude at first. I tried to follow, but realized I had left a child in the house alone. I stopped following and turned to go back to the farmhouse. When I got back to the house, I turned to see where it was. It was just leaving my sight, going up over a distant stand of trees. I went into the house.

It was very quiet, I didn’t notice any lines in the skin for doors or windows. There were no lights, but it was daylight. At my closest, I was about 50 feet from it. The corn was about 5-6 ft. tall, so it was July or August.

It looked like brushed aluminum….maybe darker. Very smooth, but not chrome shiny smooth. I was a Trekkie, so I was very excited.
