MUFON Case # 21057
Date/Time: September 10, 1981 @ 19:15
Location: Ft. Campbell, Kentucky
Distance: 500 feet or less
Description: Saw the same thing Doc saw on your email story from today!
Report: A couple of buddies and me were leaving the barracks about 19:15 to go to town. As we were headed toward the car we noticed a bunch of guys from surronding barracks were pointing toward the sky and talking excitedly.
We stopped to see what they were looking at and saw a cylindrical object hovering right over our heads. I really don't know the exact size, but it looked large.
It was right on top of us but it didn't make a sound. It slowly turned and headed toward the air field. Another thing that was strange, was you could hear all kinds of air craft at the field taking off. Usually you'ld hear a plane or two taking off, but this night it was constant engine sounds.
We watched in awe for about 15 minutes then went to town.
