Description: My father had just been diagnosed with lung cancer a month before this incident. My husband and I were walking to our car outside what was then St. Elizabeth's hospital in Lincoln. We looked up and both saw this absolutely mammoth object in the sky, not more than what seemed to be 2,000 to 3,000 feet in the air. It made a dull humming sound and appeared to be hovering or floating. We watched this thing for at least 15 minutes. Our drive home was not more than 10 minutes, and once home sat on our front porch watching this thing. All I can remember is that we did not really talk to each other as we were watching it hover, it was as though we were "mute." After watching it from home for a few minutes, it simply evaporated. Very strange, to say the least. My husband and I went to work the next day (we worked in the same office building) and I remember asking co-workers if they had seen the object. No one had with the exception of one of my husband's co-workers. Other than that, I never really talked about it for fear of ridicule from others. My husband died in 1994, and I wish I would have talked to him a little more about the incident. I would also like to know if there was any official news on this in the Lincoln press. In 1998 or 1999, Mike Murphy (a former talk-show host on 710am KCMO-Kansas City) had a UFO expert on his morning radio program. I felt compelled to call the talk show and share my story. The next call they took was from someone who lived in the Kansas City area around the same time of my sighting claiming to have seen a UFO with the same description as mine. I would swear under oath about this and wouldn't mind having someone contact me about my experience.

TV/Radio: See above.
