UFO Sighting Report


August, 1972


Solomon, Kansas, United States


I saw a very bright, white glowing, round object, approximately 25 feet diameter, moving at tree height approaching from west and going east on the south side of old highway 40. No sounds were heard and it traveled instantly, stopping two or three times in a zig zap pattern.

Sighting Time: 




No. of Witnesses: 



5 to ten seconds

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Very bright "white only" color. I saw no other colors. It was round and approximately 25 feet wide. It was absolutely quiet and extremely fast. Three blocks in about five to ten seconds. Stopping completely in an instant with no shaking. It would zig, then stop, then zag, then stop, then zig, etc.

Size of Object(s)

If I put my hands out in front of me, I would seperate my hands apart by about eight inches to get the width of it. The distance would be from my front porch to the other side of a two lane highway above the mature trees. I would estimate it was 100 feet away from me.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Rural small town. Population 1500. Along and above old highway 40 through town. City park across street (which comprises an entire block area). Our house was across the street, mid-way in the block. No military except for Salina or Fort Riley Kansas. Solomon was a very quiet town.

Full Description & Details

I sometimes slept out on the front porch of our house, on the porch swing, as a child growing up in Solomon, Kansas. Our big two story house faced south and along old highway 40. Old highway 40 runs through Solomon. The city park was located across the street and there were many mature trees there.

One summer (I believe in August) night at approximately 11:00pm I was getting ready to lay down on the porch swing to go to bed. I remember the time because my mother was still up and we normally go to bed at 10:00pm. The sky was clear and I could see many stars. I then noticed a bright light coming from the west, just above the treeline along highway 40 and traveling (extremely fast) alongside the highway opposite of our house. It would stop instantly about three or four times as it zig zagged somewhat as it headed eastward for a total of two or three blocks. I only observed it for about five to ten seconds during a three to four block length.

I immediately headed for the front porch steps and when I reached the steps, I stopped, looked at it and at that instant, the bright light suddenly stopped directly in front of me, across the street, at the tree top level. It then changed its overall direction and flew directly over our house going north. That was the last time I saw the light.

I felt that at the moment I stopped and looked at it, it stopped and changed course on me. It was really weird at that moment. It was like they saw me too and changed what it was doing.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Absolutely not. Absolutely no noise. Clear summer night. No spotlights. It stopped instantly and changed course instantly. One bright color. No smell. No couds. Traveling HORIZONTALLY.
