Cigar-shaped UFO with black markings spotted in 1970

On July 15, 1970, a young child spotted a cigar-shaped UFO with strange black markings over Lockport, in the State of New York, USA.

Eyewitness statement:

I was 7 years old. I was walking from the neighbor's yard to my yard, my father was three feet in front of me. I just looked up for no reason and saw the object passing between the neighbor's house and ours. I stopped and stood still for about one and a half minutes. It was fairly low in the sky, about 500 feet above me. It was a white, cigar-shaped object. There was no observable propulsion system, no windows, and no sound. It was right overhead and moving East to West. The only markings were a black crescent moon and black star next to each other situated in the exact center of the object (sketch attached to this form). I told my father there was something in the sky and to look up but he said, "No, I will not." At that time I caught up to my father who was walking into the garage. I don't know why I never tried to look at it again, but I dreamed about it for several nights. Ever since then, I always look at the sky whenever I go outside.
