Sighting Details

I do not remember the date or year. It happened in the summer when I was a young child (about 1972-1973). I was outside with my dad (deceased). I saw a round object that looked like the moon was on fire. I asked dad why the moon was on fire. After a moment he looked up and saw it. After a few minutes, it very rapidly (like a flash of lighting) fly to the horizon, circled the horizon and disappeared to the southeast. Dad got the number for the NASA tracking station in Rosman, NC and described the event. Rosman said that the did not see anything.. I do know that within a few minutes jets, and later helicopters were all over the area. And searched along the path Dad told Rosman. To help with directions, face south. I first saw the ufo at 1:00. It flew to the horizon, circled the horizon and disappeared around 11:00.
