Animal Reaction Feature:
LaVern Affeldt, farmer, noted his cattle were nervous, and his dog was whining and looking east.  Looking east himself, Affeldt saw a blue-white object hovering about a mile away.

Joan Woodward, Animal Reaction Specialist:
Affeldt was doing farm chores at 10:30 p.m., when the round object with well-defined edges was spotted.  As he and his family watched, the object began to move north, alternating quick movement with hovering, both horizontally and vertically (at times almost touching the ground).  A consistent change in color was associated with movementóblue-white when still and bright red when moving.  Affeldt and his family thought the object was revolving, and it disappeared by either shooting out of sight or blinking off.

No sound, EM effects, or physiological effects were reported.
