Full Description & Details

My family of five including myself had just stepped outside our home to enter our family car. I recall the aproximate time of being just between 6:30pm and 7:00pm on a Sunday evening. I recall this time because it was the usual time our family left to attend Church services on each Sunday evening. I do recall an early spring shower had just fallen because my dad had pulled the car to the front of our home making it more accessible to us because of some continuing drizzle.

We had all started to the car when one of us (I do not recall which one) pointed and said what in the world is that thing? I do recall looking up toward a North Westerly direction to see a strange oval shaped object rolling end over end passing directly overhead. I recall the object giving off different colors in a pulsing, vibratory sort of way. I would only be guessing at this point now but I would estimate it's altitude to be less than 300 feet off the ground. I do recall my father saying it looks like it may land nearby.

I do not recall hearing any sound whatever from the object but my brother and sister say it was somewhat like a humming sound that an electrical transformer on a power line would make.

I do not recall any of us being frightened but more curious and amazed would best describe our reaction. We did not report this to anyone but I do recall our hometown newspaper being full of accounts of the sightings the next day.

Witness Background
