Jackson, Mississippi Disc/Saucer Shaped Craft

Date: May 3, 2004
Time: Daytime sighting

It was a gorgeous, bright and sunny day! Temps were in the 70s. It was disc/saucer-shaped. Based on where it was in comparison to the building it was hovering over I'd have to say it was at a good and certain 20-30 feet long. I was checking on my local television station's webcam over downtown Jackson, Mississippi, which in traveling distance is about 15 minutes from me. It was hovering above the Standard Life Insurance building which is the tallest building we have here in Jackson. It's no skyscraper, but a tall building nonetheless and the disc was hovering about 50-70 feet, at most, above the roof just to the right of the building and it was tilted a bit sideways...that caught my eye immediately. It was metallic silver in color. I don't really know what you mean by texture, but it appeared smooth in appearance if that helps.

Q. - Could you please describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind? If you know the names of any, or all this would be great.

A. - Downtown Jackson, MS, which is the capital here and it is a typical downtown area with a lot of businesses. It is not very close to Jackson's airport, but is about a good half an hour from it and no military bases or installations of any kind in our area here.

Q. - Did you happen to see any aircraft in the area around the time of the sighting ? Before, during or just afterwards ?

A. - No, none at all before, during, or afterwards...and I was checking specifically for that. Also, since it was the middle of the day the traffic choppers were not out. In addition to this, no chopper or any other aircraft would be flying that low above such a tall building. This was no aircraft however. It was extremely visible on the cam as a disc/saucer shaped craft. If it had been anything else it would have been extremely easy to tell...I had that good and clear of a shot of it.

It hovered for about 2 minutes and then zip, zip, zoom, GONE! Took off in the blink of an eye and left no chemtrails.

Obviously since it was a webcam I had no sound capabilities so I can't tell you if there was any sound, but I'd venture to take a guess and say it did not make any sound based on experience with these "UFOs". It seemed to have a fuzziness around the edges even though it was a very definitive shape. If you've ever seen a professional photograph taken with a soft focus lens then that is what it was like. It makes the subject in the photo soft around the edges but still very, very definable. Many photographers use soft focus lenses when taking wedding pictures for the soft and romantic effect. (I'm a shutterbug so know a little about this stuff...do my own black and white processing, developing, etc.). One more thing...I read somewhere on a UFO reporting sight (and I'm sorry I simply do not remember what site) about a UFO spotted over downtown Jackson just a few weeks or couple or so months prior to my sighting! I don't remember the descriptive details either, but I do remember seeing that report !

Thank you very much to the witness for their report.
