Skyway, it was when I was heading north on Mannheim that I got the best sidelong look at it, and it did look quite a bit like (I so hate to type this,
lol) the ostensible cell phone photo --- evenly ovoid, overall lighter gray, a bit too distant to make out any features, if indeed features there
were. From the parking lot, though, I was closer, but at a more underneath vantage point than a sideview one... from there, since I could still see
it somewhat from the side but could see the bottom better, and it looked a little more disklike from the bottom, but there was enough sideview to see
that it was a bit "higher" than the stereotypical flying disk... a little thicker than a Frisbee proportionately, in other words, and with much
smoother curves. I saw no features whatsoever --- as I said before, there was something about the texture that halfway perplexed me, because while it
seemed by its shading almost reflective, it didn't really seem to have a mirrorlike surface. Words really do escape me at somee points regarding
this, and I'm fairly well a walking dictionary, so that's noteworthy.
As to how I felt when I saw it --- initially on the road I was curious and a bit excited by it, because it was fairly apparent that it was something
quite different. When I watched it from the parking lot, there was simply no doubt in me that I was seeing, under practically ideal circumstances, a
craft that was under control, that was capable of moving in ways that would, with normal (known) technology, cause a human body quite a bit of
discomfort, if not brroken bones, and that it was, in fact, extraterrestrial in origin. I really thought it was going to land, and the friend who had
rridden to the airport with mee said at one point "This will change everything." Emotionally, part of me wanted it to come down fifty feet from me,
and another part of me wanted to run and hide. Not very scientific-minded of me, granted, but it had that effect.
