Full Description & Details

I'm not sure about the date but, I believe it was sometime in 1969 in late spring because my brother-in-law fished a lot in the spring. My brother-in-law Bo has since passed away. It was in the evening as we were going home from fishing on a country two lane road (there was no traffic) the name of the road was Dairy Road. As we drove down the road we had a field on our left about 100 yds wide and if you looked to your left across the field you would see two hills with a valley in between them. As I was driving I was looking straight ahead and something caught my eye - I turned quick to see what it was and that's when I seen the UFO. It was beginning to appear from between the hills. I told BO to look at that - I stopped in the road and we sat there looking at the UFO as it came into complete sight. It kept moving and maybe it was moving at about one or two miles per hr. - really slow. All of a sudden it stopped - as if it had seen us and it just set there about two feet off the ground. Than all of a sudden it moved straight up about fifteen feet and stopped again. When it did that I got scared because I didn't know what it was going to do. For an instant it made me feel like it was coming after us. That all of a sudden fire came from underneath the UFO about a five foot circle and all the way to the ground and than shoot straight up and was gone in an instant. The UFO never did make any sound , not even when it blasted off.

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

We saw a UFO - plain and simple.

Other Comments

It was still day light when we seen the UFO on Dairy Road for about 5 minutes and at that time I lived just a few minutes on down Dairy Road - we didn't get home until 9:30 PM. I never have figured that out. It was daylight when we seen the UFO fly away but dark when we got home a few minutes later.
