Full Description & Details
My Brother and I were playing in the yard with some friends on a july afternoon in 1975.
Our ages were 8 and 10 yrs at the time of the sighting. I dont remember who saw them first but our attention was called to three shiny silver disc shaped objects traveling from the southwest to the northeast at a low altitude. Maybe 1000 feet up. They were in a classic V formation and were not moving very quickly. The discs were very shiny.
Much shinier than the airliners and military aricraft we were used to seeing. We live in the flightpath of Omahas airport and there is an air force base about 10 miles to the southeast. Even at our young ages we had seen all types of aircraft flying about in our skies. These objects did not look like anything we had seen before. All of us who had seen these objects tried to tell out parents about what we had seen but they did not believe us. This sighting changed the course of my life. I became a fan of science fiction and fantasy. I was even going for my pilots license for a while through aviation explorers. I currently belong to a local astronomy club and own several telescopes. Maybe I'll see something again when Im looking though the eyepiece. Who knows.
Occupation; machine operator. 3 years of college. 20 hours of flight time in single engine aircraft. I enjoy reading books on ufos, Astronomy, prehistoric life, other paranormal phenomenon, and science fiction. I belong to local Mufon club and the local astronomy club.
They Say seeing is believing. I dont know if what I saw was an alien spaceship. It was like nothing I had seen before or since. I like to think its had a positive effect on my life. Life is after all 10% what happens to you and 90% your reaction to it.
