On a private tour through the warehouses of the Smithsonian in Silver Springs years ago there was a navy experimental, among the hundreds of aircraft never known by the public to exist, that was about 8-10' in diamater made of tiny stick trusses covered with fabric and looked just like a flying saucer that was made in the late 40s or early 50s.

On another note, when I was in high school in Los Angeles in 54 or 55 durring lunch period at what I would estimate to be at about 15FL I watched what I would call a flying saucer being chased by 2 F-104s? for about 20 minutes until I had to go back to class.

The saucer would remain stationary and the jetes would come at it from 2 sides and before they got there it would dart upward and off to the side at probably 5 times the speed of the approaching jets. This happened over and over for the whole time that I watched it.

I wasn't asn alarmist and just thought it interesting and assumed that since it was military jets involved thqt saying anything to anyone wouldn't serve any purpose.
