Full Description & Details

we live in Far Western KY roughly 300 miles west of Cincinnati OH. My dad remarried on Sept 11th, 1973, We moved to memory in the middle to late September 73. We only lived there less than 2 months until our house became available. as we celebrated Thanksgiving that year in our house.

On the evening in question. A rather large perhaps as long as a football field hovering object, Cigar/oblong shaped, silver, flashing lights. Loud humming/mechanical sound just enough to wake one but not too noisy or loud.

This noise awakened my brother somewhere in the 2 am range, upon his view he awoke our dad. they were at the front window of our home. then went outside and looked back toward Marshall Memory Gardens Cemetery. The Craft hovers over the cemetery for at least 5 mins if not longer then quietly zoomed out of sight heading east.

We talked about it briefly the next morning. Dad instructed us to never speak of it again and we didn't til now.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

unquestionably it was something never seen before or after

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

A UFO is simply an UN-identified Object, This was unidentified therefore it was an UFO.Very little knowledge before or since about UFO, I simply don't care one way or another just reporting what was seen
