UFO sightings

Self-study activity:
Watch this National Geographic video clip on a ufo sighting in Illinois, and answer the questions below.

You may find that understanding everything in the video is quite hard, but a good strategy is just focusing on the task, on the questions you have to answer and try not to lose your concentration and be discouraged because there are bits you don't understand at all.

1 What does Melvern Noll do?
2 How noisy was the object he saw?
3 How big was the object?
4 How many lights did the object have?
5 What shape did it have?
6 How many police officers saw the object?
