III saw 50 ft flat silver disc with cupola/dome to one
side, a porthole and hatch on the dome, neon-like lighting
around the edges [strangely pulsating?], approaching car
from ahead to the NE about 60° elevation, then hovered and
"wavered slightly" for 3 [2?] mins several hundred feet
off the ground, whirring sound like a vacuum cleaner, car
engine died while object hovered. Witness got out of car
with Thompson submachine gun considering whether to shoot
the disc, companion urged him not to. Object suddenly
turned up on edge seeming to "roll across the sky" faster
than a jet to the SW disappearing about 3-1/2 miles away.
Witness claimed car wires "magnetized" and paint cracked.
