Full Description & Details
I will never forget, as my mother had passed, and it was the night of her wake. Slightly after 8:00 P.M. Our family of seven, along with many credible witnesses, were all at our family home talking and eating. At the time, I was 14 and the youngest of the family. I became bored with the adults, and went across the street to sit on the front porch with friends my age, and fool around with the newest Panasonic transistor radio. All was going well, and the weather was fabulous. I was still shaken, by having looked at my mother in a casket, and knowing I'd have to see her again tomorrow, but I tried to hold myself together, by pretending I was having fun. The suddenly the radio went haywire, and started screeching and changing stations with nobody touching it. The radio had become useless. Then the youngest boy of us four, pointed to the West, and said "Look, there's a flying saucer" We looked, and there certainly was a disk shaped object to the far West, and giving my best guess, I's say it was 10 or more miles away from us. We stared in amazement for 3 - 4 minutes, and then with the speed of a fighter jet, it moved from its hovering position, to the middle of our street... exactly between my family home, and the front porch across the street where I was visiting. The craft looked to be perhaps 30 feet in diameter, and was of a graying silver color. But most amazingly was we could see the occupant from the chest up. The occupants were behind foggy gray windows. The craft continued to turn slowly in its counter clockwise movements which seemed to be calibrated with 1 click per second.
The craft emitted a very low noise as that of the purring of a cat, while a dome shaped bottom blinked of a pale yellow, green and red pulses. We stood in the middle of the street and watched alone for a minute or two, the I decided to go into our over crowded house and get the white pillow case off my bed and flag it down. While running through the house and heading for the front door, my middle sister grabbed me and told me to go and put that pillow case back in the bed. All visitors and family quieted to hear what my sister was fussing about, but instead, heard form me. I insisted that she let go of my arm as I was flagging down a flying saucer. Everyone laughed and said that kids watch too much television. I twisted out of my sister's grip and jumped down the entire flight of front porch steps and ran into the middle of the street with the pillow case and my sister chasing me. To he amazement... there was a flying saucer, hoovering about 30 some feet in the air. She ran in our house and told of it. Then about 20 to 30 people came out and held their breath in amazement. At that time, a highly honored police man was visiting my family, and used or phone to call the police station. He was told to shut up about it, and to explain to the crowd, that we were seeing swamp gas and several other foolish things.
Well after 10 - 15 minutes of viewing... the object then lifted about 20 more feet into the air, and shot off silently to the East, at a speed that could not be determined. It had just left our viewing area in the blink of an eye. This remained the talk of many people for years to come. Many have passed since that time, but a few of us still remain.
I've told this story to many people in the past, and they suggest that I should have grabbed the camcorder of a camera. They do not know that camcorders did not exist 50 years ago, and that taking pictures would require going out to buy film, and drug stores were closed at that time of night, leaving us with only our minds to capture the picture.
be explained as any conventional man-made or natural
Not at all. This craft was clearly nothing man could have made, and the shadows of the inhabitants appeared taller that humans.
I am nearing 65 years old now, and long ago left Warren Ohio. I had a high school education and some college. I have just retired from the mental health care field after 30 some years.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I had always been interested in flying saucers, as I was then at the age when UFO movies were being made, and I was extremely curious about them.
