At approximately 5:26 p.m. local time, a round, flat, disc-shaped object of 15-20 feet in diameter was observed in the sky. The object was circling back and forth in 1/2 mile radius circles with high speed turns. The object was bright metallic colored and was approximately 2-3 miles away from the observer who watched the object with artillery binoculars. The object showed a high rate of acceleration and disappeared to the east after approximately 3 minutes. A sighting was made on the GCA Radar at Plattsburgh AFB at about 5:30 p.m. A phenomena of isolated, high intensity jamming was noted. (Dan Wilson)
