Full Description & Details

1984 Memorial Day nightime about 10:00 p.m. Hillsdale Michigan near Hillsdale Airport a Blimp like sighting close up ... My younger brother and his family left to go home leaving myself and others ( some of the witnesses do not wish to be known ) still at my parents house ... My Dad just died months before , ANYWAY i went out on the vack porch and turned to look up and this multi colored gasses surrounded a blimp like object . Yes this is the famous area in the mid 1960's the was crowned SWAMP GAS just about a mile northwest of hear , a great error there also ... I called to the others in the house my MOM & current girl friend & other family members I said look a plane is on fire , but no it is not so i ran in the house to get the camera and no film so i ran back out and out to the hilly field about a mile from HILLSDALE AIRPORT . THE Blimp like object drifted and stopped it was hovering and here i was about a hundred feet from it it was sort of gray blue color but it was dark out but i could see it good I had the feeling to shoot at it but this might be a missle of some sort or non threatening , WHAT would you do think act mam my heart was beating wildly . so after about ten minutes IT started cracking sound and sparks came out the back end and it started moving still floating ...Other people along the road called state road stopped and watched it said my girlfriend days later , PLUS newspaper reports of it the next days hundreds of miles away . I wish i could find others that seen it , up close & ... I feel lucky and haunted at the same time ... So keep looking up & carry a Camera . my name is DOUGLAS BROESAMLE and i love old guitars & play also use to paint so this is just another page in lifes book .....................................................

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

could of been a experimental BLIMP but newspaper reports tracked i going over 500 miles an hour and the local airport was called sure it could of been experimental or some OR

Witness Background

Music , ART , some wild experiences , great family , friends etc ...

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

we were allways looking around after the mid sixtes events but after awhile of not to much happening and then seeing that I could say a lot about this subject BUT

Other Comments

my Mom is dead now but she remembered details more then the rest of us that was strange and the fact that some people are afraid of community gossip to step up and tell the truth oh well what can u say I IS TOO BAD THAT the ones that see these things are treated like poeple that tell about a ghost shighting UNTILL THEY SEE SOMETHING
