Animal Reaction Feature:
A 51-year-old art history professor woke at 2:30 am, and saw an object through her bedroom window.  She went to the window and saw a silent domed disc a few feet off the lawn of her back yard.  Five dogs within view of the object were described as indifferent. They did not bark or make any sounds.

Joan Woodward, Animal Reaction Specialist:
The object was described as a domed disc (top-shaped) about the size of a VW.  Red, yellow, and white perimeter lights flashed sequentially.  Physical traces in the form of numerous clumps of ash-like material in a 26-foot diameter circle were found 120 feet from the witnessí window.  After hovering over the back lawn, the object rose at an angle and accelerated between two trees and out of sight. 

Sky/weather conditions were not noted in the report.  The witnessí home was on a farm, and the duration of her sighting was about a minute.

No EM effects, no sound, and no physiological effects were reported.  Physical traces were reportedly analyzed at the University of Michigan and results were not consistent with natural elements in the control samples.
