Four workers and their supervisor were loading trucks on the dock at a produce distribution terminal in downtown St. Louis when they noticed a glowing, green disc-shaped object hovering below the clouds in the western sky. One witness said the object "just suddenly appeared." The object was disc-shaped with a slight dome at the top.
The witnesses agreed that it was the size of a golf ball held at arms length.
After hovering in place for about 20 seconds, it dropped straight down about six inches from the witnesses' perspective and streaked due south at a speed much greater than a jet aircraft. As the object moved off the color appeared to change to a white-orange.
The object's estimated altitude was 1,000 ft. and its distance from the witnesses was approximately one mile. No sound was emitted from the craft. All five witnesses agreed on the details of this sighting. The witnesses were interviewed in person by Actaeon investigators Tom Eckhardt, Dave Kokotovich, David Marler, and Richard Reinhardt.
