UFO Sighting in Columbus, Georgia on October 20th 1972 – Glowing, yellow-gold disk

- in UFO Reports
As a child, I became interested in Astronomy and my mom bought a telescope for me as a birthday gift. Hence, as my birthday is in September, this would have happened in October or November 1972. I had been fascinated by the rings of Saturn and used to watch it every night, up into the middle of the night, which explains my nights without much sleep before going to school, and my poor grades at that time. I had heard a friend tell me that Jupiter was going to be more visible in the night sky and we should have a look. I never checked Astronomically, the verity of my friend's statement. My brother (now deceased) and an old friend who had suggested this with myself & telescope went to an undeveloped part of the neighborhood nearby, where there was a rising hill, sort of like a butte that we see here in SD. We climbed up and tried to focus a telescope according to star maps, and this object, glowing yellow-orange came to light as described above. We grabbed our things and ran home frightened without stopping. My parents said I was nuts and my mom asked if I had been smoking marijuana. I emphatically refuted her accusation. I never mentioned the story again. I did not want to be called crazy. This memory only came to mind when I recalled my past experience, more recently. This is a weak report, as it was so long ago. I am nearly 59 now, but have never forgotten the incident.
