Sighting Details

Home on leave from the Army Aug/Sep 1976. Pulled into driveway and observed object when I got out of the drivers seat. Only thing made sense was a helicopter with maybe a spotlight. Thought it possibly could be rustlers looking for cattle or hogs to call in trucks. Sent my brother to get a pair of binos. Observed directly north from my parents acreage approx 9-11 pm in a clear star lit sky. Watched stationary object for about 10 mins or so. It was extememly bright white and saucer shaped. Given a pair of binos by my brother. Before I could bring them to my eyes, the object, from a dead stop, streaked to the West out of eyesight in an instant. Undescribably fast. Size of and distance from object unknown as seen in night sky and nothing to compare distance and size ratios to. Silent, brightest white, no light beam as in a spotlight of anykind. Just your plain ole everyday white flying saucer. My mother and two younger brothers were also there witnessing this. Glad I saw it.
