NOVEMBER 1978, AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, A MAN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A quite synthetic UFO catalogue website indicates that the MUFON file has a case in November 1978, at 5 p.m., in Austin, Texas, USA, in which there was a "copper disc, about 20 feet across or "bigger than a car", about fifty feet away, sometimes domed, else open like a wading pool, that revealed four seated humanoids, in tight suits and head covers, operating controls, looking at each other and at the witness.

It was reportedly observed in partly cloudy weather by one male 29-year-old witness in a rural area for over 12 minutes. A whining sound was heard.

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that in November 1978, at 17:00, in Austin, Texas, USA, there was a "copper disc, about 20 feet across, about fifty feet away, sometimes domed, else open like a wading pool, that revealed four seated humanoids, in tight suits and head covers, operating controls, looking at each other and at the witness. The UFO was Bigger than a car."

And: "It was observed in partly cloudy weather by one male 29-year-old witness in a rural area for over 12 minutes. A whining sound was heard."

The sources are indicated as "MUFON, MUFON investigation files."

Points to consider:

Although the case seems of high strangeness, the absence of a precise reference of a MUFON document does not enable me of to learn more, my search in the MUFON journal and my search of other versions gave nothing back so far.
