Robert Frenhoff. "I happened to glance up into the evening sky, when I was surprised to see a queer thing like a child's gyroscope or spinning top, whirling along at a great altitude. It was mainly yellow, but had a crimson glow at the edges, which might have been exhaust. I shouted to my wife and she and our neighbors rushed out to look at it. It moved in a fantastic manner. One moment it would hover near the Great Bear constellation, apparently, and then in a sudden rush, dart away at an angle of ninety degrees; then stop short as if it had hit a brick wall. There was no way of estimating its immense height in the sky. It repeated these hovering and rushing maneuvers until close on midnight."

It was about 15 to 20 ft in diameter across the base, which housed what looked like a lip on the inside bottom.

James Flynn. It was hovering, shaped like a broad, upside-down cone, an estimated 200 feet in the air above some cypress trees.

Flynn described the object as some 25 feet high, and twice that in its diameter. Up near the top were four tiers of two-foot-square square window-looking sections that emitted a yellowish glow. The thing was metallic, and seemed to be made of four-by-four plates that appeared to be held together with rivets. Around the base there was an orange-red illumination that seemed to cast a glow on the ground some 75 feet around its rim.

James Flynn, "a cone shaped UFO hovering about 200' over some cypress trees... moved rapidly and changed positions... the cone-shaped object appeared to be about 25' high and had four tiers of windows emitting a yellowish glow... a noise like a diesel generator... within 200 yards of the UFO, Flynn jumped out of the swamp buggy... the UFO emitted a jet-like noise and a blast of wind that knocked him off balance; as he continued to approach within a few yards, the UFO emitted a beam like a welder's torch and Flynn blacked out... Extensive physical trace evidence was found, including an area of burnt sawgrass 72 feet in diameter... 'I felt a blow like a sledgehammer'... when he awoke... his vision was seriously impaired. About 24 hours had passed.... [he] required medical treatment, and had a small dark spot on his forehead. He suffered impaired vision in one eye, numbness, and loss of hearing." The effects lasted for over a week.

Haraldo Westendorf. Westendorf showed several detailed color drawings of the object, with his own plane drawn to scale alongside it. He describes the object as a faceted cone, flat on the bottom with a rounded point on top. On each of the eight or ten sloping side panels were three large bulges, like triangle-shaped bay windows on the side of a house -- but they did not look like windows. The entire surface was brown in color. The structure was about 70 meters (225 feet) high and about 100 meters (325 feet) in diameter, big enough to fill nearly an entire soccer field if landed. His own plane, less than 6 meters wide, was tiny by comparison.
