Case 105266: The witness at age 12 and his 3-year old sister were living with their parents in US naval housing just west of Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes Naval Training Facility. Playing kickball in the backyard, his sister suddenly said, “What’s that?” They could see a disc-shaped flying saucer “of tremendous size,” now estimated to be 300 feet or more in diameter, apparently attempting to land into the lake. To this writer, the witness description sounds like a giant World War I naval seaman’s cap. But, instead of the black headband, the disc had the three colors of Germany: black, red and gold and in the proper sequence. To modern Germans, the colors represent freedom and unity. The colored sections of the disc’s “headband” were rotating in opposite directions (!).
