1961 - At around 11:00 o'clock in the morning, a 21-year-old man saw a golden disc-shaped object floating on the surface of the water while crossing the Mississippi River near Vicksburg, Mississippi. He got out of his car and watched it through binoculars. The water surface was disturbed as the object ascended, making a swishing sound. The sighting lasted about two minutes.
