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.

Did it look like this? (the one at the museum, that is)
