Summary: A technical writer for United Technology Center saw a disc-shaped UFO hovering in the sky. He exposed 8 mm color film of the object using a 36 mm telephoto lens. (A few frames of the film were submitted to NICAP, but the image is too small to show detail.) When four jet interceptors converged on the UFO (three from the west and one from the east), it drifted westward tilting back and forth, “then pulled up in a short arc and shot up out of sight in an estimated three seconds.”
