UFO Sighting Report


August, 1943


none, Oregon, United States


Saw what I took to be an airplane (white light) traveling on a level path from my right to left. It shortly took a 45 deg turn up and then continued on a straight path into the dark heavens but traveling in a right handed circular path until the distance was so great the light disappeared finally, about 10 to 12 minutes as I recall, that sucker was really traveling!!!!

Date Reported:

Sighting Time: 




No. of Witnesses: 

I alone


10 - 12 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

A white light suggestive of an aircraft.

Size of Object(s)

One finger would have covered it.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Impossible to estimate given the conditions (darkness- distance) and surrounding forest.

Description of Area / Surroundings

A dark forest with many trees close by.

Full Description & Details

As above, I had just traveled all day in a motor march from Miss and had no idea of where we ended up iin this forest. There were no other lights visible when I went on guard duty.

UFO's hadn't been (invented) yet so I was not influenced by any thoughts of them when I saw my "plane" flying. I had no idea of distances as the night was so dark and I was standing by a small fire we had built.

I recounted my tale to my prof when I was back in college, he listened but said nothing and then continued on with his lecture. So until I hear differently I still contend I'm the only person to see a ufo leave the earth and travel into outer space.

As an artist/illustrator I've painted lots of outer space scenery and for the Navy where I worked as an illustrator for 27 years next to Death Valley I made illustrations for underwater scenes borrowing from my skin/scuba diving experiences in CA, Hawaii, & British Honduras.

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

Not unless they can travel in a few minutes into outer space.

Witness Background

I've been an artist/illustrator all my life, painted lots of space scenes plus underwater scenes for the Navy where I was employed for 27 years next to Death Valley, relying on my experience diving in CA, Hawaii, Brit. Honduras on Ambergris Island and the Island of Tiburo in the Sea of Cortez.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I believe there are other worlds beyond ours that could be far advanced enough to travel to ours- actually that's what it had to have been what I observed. No other explanation is possible.

Other Comments

I hope to hear some acknowledgment of my notes here so that I will actually finally know that someone has received this and is aware of it.
