AMHERST, Mass. (AP) -- Dozens of residents of the Amherst area are baffled by what they describe as a weird low-flying object seen moving over town this week.

Witnesses described the UFO seen after dark Tuesday as the size of two or three cars, and roughly diamond-shaped, or even triangular. It was visible because of its dim white lights.

One woman said it was only 75 to 100 feet above her car.

Another woman told the Daily Hampshire Gazette (http://bit.ly/RHQsYt ) the object was too slow and too quiet to be an airplane.

Police say they received one call about "lights in the sky," but they didn't investigate. Westover Air Reserve Base, which has a radar tower in Amherst, said it had nothing in its logs about any aircraft moving through the area at the time.
