Description: Late at night I went outside to get my cat. I saw a very bright white light traveling from the southwest to the northeast. The UFO had no other lights. I looked at this object through binoculars. It had “NO” blinking or colored lights. The UFO went right over me. At this time I went back into the house to wake up my son. He also saw the UFO. We observed it for 3 to 5 minutes. The UFO was of circular shape. It seemed to be traveling at the same speed. When directly over me it was much larger then anything in the night sky! I have seen man made satellites over several years and this seemed too close in the atmosphere to be one. Hopefully someone else witnessed what my son and I saw that night. If the planet Venus is in the southern sky, the UFO was four times larger than this planet at least. I did not get a photograph of the UFO.
Comments: The witness seems to be familiar with satellites and is convinced that what he saw wasn’t a satellite. Satellites are very visible in the rural areas of Montana where skies are free of pollution and city lighting. An investigation has revealed that the International Space Station (ISS) was visible in the area and at the time that the witness saw the object.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
