December 1983 : Inflight between St. Louis and Phoenix
A Large Dome Shaped UFO With Antenna Arrays - Seen From 34,000 Feet
Date: December 1983
Back about 1983 in December, I was flying back to St. Louis, from Phoenix, for a week of training, and we were routed through the Denver airport. We were in the four corners area (AZ, UT, NM, CO) and I was looking out the window, Rt. side, a couple of rows behind the wing, always like to see where I am going and what is on the ground, if possible. We were at about 34,000 ft, and there was some cloud cover at about 25,000 - 28,000 ft.
I was watching the terrain transition as we came out of the NE Arizona barren landscape, and suddenly became aware of a large dome-shaped object at about 29-30,000 feet. It appeared to be shaped similar to a State capitol building, except it had a lot of antenna arrays on it. The bottom that I could see, appeared to be flat. It was hovering for about 20 seconds and then it descended slowly into a cloud bank. I did not see any flashing lights, or moving parts. It was a dull silver-gray color. It was just a surprising.
The antenna arrays were the most surprising thing to me about the surface of the object. I felt no rush of excitement or panic, just marveled at the size and appearance. I was looking at the object at about a 10 degree down angle and estimated that it was about 1 - 1 1/2 miles away. I would guess that it was about 75 ft. wide and about 45 - 50 ft. high. I was wide awake, and I don't drink or use mind altering drugs, legal or illegal. I have never seen another unidentified object in the air. This was really a strange experience.
Anyway, that is the extent of my UFO mystery experiences. Best wishes to you and your group. Maybe one of these days we will get it all sorted out!
Best wishes to you.
Thank you to the witness for their sighting report.
