Further Description of Sighting: I don’t recall the exact year. I was @ 10 yrs. old (between 1965 & 1968?). It was @ an hour before dusk. My father, a couple of his friends and I saw it for @ 3 or 4 min. It landed, sat there for a couple of min., took off and then accelerated quickly out of sight.

My dad checked the newspaper the next day. Many viewings of the event were reported, but were dismissed by the air force as a helicopter off course. We never pursued it. Now I’m curious if anyone got a photo. We didn’t dare leave the sighting for fear it would be gone when we got back with the camera.
