I was watching the game on TV in Santa Barbara CA. between the Pittsburg Stealers and Dallas Cowboys in October 1979 from Three Rivers Stadium Pittsburg PA. During a commercial break around the 2 minute warning while Chuck Conners was sales pitching a toy gun, the commercial was cut abruptly and the picture went back to the stadium. The screen showed a metallic disk (10-30 ft.) spinning like a coin (1-2 rev per sec) on a table at height about equal to the top of the stadium. Pat Summerall's excited voice came on saying "We don't know what it is we are showing you...it just appeared in the sky". He repeated several time "I can't believe what I am seeing". Tom Brookshire ,the color man, said "Oh that...that's just an illusion". Summerall disagreed and said "Well if they land, they're gonna say "take me to your leader". The crowd got very quiet...you could hear a pin drop in the place. A penalty was called on a Dallas player because he failed to get into his stance ...was just looking up at the sky. Pittsburg was winning 14 to 3...they had the ball and were running out the clock. The game ended with the camera on the disk till the end. I never heard or read a word about in any media. I didn't want the game to end...I wanted to keep looking at the disk. I felt sad when the picture changed. I was attracted to it some strange way. It changed the way I look at life and the creedance I give our government and media.

I just gotta say that it's refreshing to see a UFO vid that's not a ball of light. Plus it's old, plus, many people saw this. I could go on, but what's the point. Good stuff, hope it hasn't been previously posted.

This is awesome! Thank you for all the research and work! I'm sure many many people will appreciate it (including me).
I think this goes to show that there could be a clear UFO sighting with many present and it can easily fall into an obscurity and be forgotten.
I believe there a lot more incidences like this worldwide that people just haven't followed up on or thought too much about later because of the basic human instinct to ignore what you don't understand and isn't a direct threat.
So let me ask this, I'm assuming you got a full sized view on television before being resized and digitized. Is the view significantly better or is it still difficult to make out? It obviously isn't a blimp or a helicopter but I'd like to be able to see if it has any details of a balloon or something (like a fake UFO balloon sent up by a prankster).
Thank you again for all the work and the wonderful videos (By the way it doesn't matter to me if someone sent up a fake or it is a real ET, either way is very interesting).

They look like roter kites.
Looks organic like the wind to me and not a inteligent controlled object.
