Name: Bernard Miron

Date of Sighting: late summer, 1974 app.

Location of Sighting: Inwood area, Bunker Hill, West Virginia

Shape(s) of UFO(s): round center, 4-6 pointed star outer

Size(s) of UFO(s): too far up

Color(s) of UFO(s): blue

Number of UFO(s): 3-4

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: thousands of feet almost straight up

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): multiple patterns and speeds close together

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): cornfields and houses

Further Description of Sighting: I was driving my motorcycle to John Patton’s house in Inwood (It is off I81 about halfway between Martinsburg, W.Virginia and Winchester, Virginia)…..when i first saw these very animated pulsating blue star shapes.

They were maneuvering in close formation at a great distance but staying in pretty much one area of the sky in what looked like almost directly over the cornfield west of John’s house…..they were very high up……

when i got to John’s, he was on the rear balcony, second floor, of his house with 2 or 3 long guns leaning on the balcony railing, i have no idea what he thought he was going to do with a shotgun and a UFO …….clearly he saw them before i did …….

we watched in awe for about twenty to thirty minutes and not too long after 2 jet fighters from the direction of Washington DC (about 110 miles from us) flew over this quiet residential area, about 2 or 3 hundred feet off the ground going very fast and then straight up at the UFOs ……

as they did so, the blue things took off at an angle up and away so fast we were shocked …….it was then that we realized the blue UFOs were actually directly over an ICBM missile silo about a mile away from his house……

this is not that big a secret in so far as everyone in the area knew about it, so i doubt that i’m giving away any state secrets here……I’ve always wondered about this sighting because we never heard about it years later although at the time it was in the local papers and radio and several hundreds of people saw them as well including many police officers from Martinsburg,

the Romney-Gore area on the other side of the mountain and Winchester as well ……the interesting thing was the number of cops and other local authorities that supposedly saw this as well and the phone calls to the police about it all…….

i don’t remember how long the jets hung around oddly but that may be because i’m getting old …….but anyway, that is the story as clearly as i can remember it …….i remember it to! this day because i had quite an advanced knowledge of military aircraft at the time and as soon as i saw these things i knew they were not from here if you know what i mean.

Follansbee, West Virginia, USA; July 26, 2007

Name: Nancy

Date of Event: July 26, 2007

Location of Event: Rt. 2 northbound lane side of road Follansbee, West Virginia directly across from Steubenville, Ohio

Message: I saw one of these in Follansbee, WV. It was hovering just above the hillside July 26, 07. 4:30 a.m. I was directly under it and had an awsome veiw. I wish I had a camera. It was huge. jet black and had an arrow shape. Bowed in on back. 4 tiny red lights on the botton that hung down like balls. Although it was trianglular in shape it was not the triangle craft with the pointed sides. they were more rounded. We parked under it along the road, and watched it about 10 minutes. It was absolutely silent.

These were the bightest whitest lights I have ever seen. We took off the go on top of the hill at the graveyard where it was. It only took us a couple of minutes to get there. There is a full view of the sky. When we got up on top. I was nowhere in site. Coming down the highway Rt. 2, it looked like a plane coming strait at us. We are close to Pittsburgh, Pa airport just 40 minutes away. this was not in a flight path and it hovered about 30 feet from the top of the hill. As we got closer coming down the road.

I realized that was not a plane. I was close enough, I could have shot it with a beebee gun. The craft was beautiful. It was thick, like it had stories. like a house. It was so large I could not begin to give you an accurate measurement. If you go to you tube video “market st. bridge, Steubenville, Ohio”. It’s not long. The hillside we saw it on is on that video, just to the right as they are crossing the bridge. The ufo is not in that video. It’s not my video. But you will see how close we were to it.

Also drjackripper has a good video of these crafts. it’s called “strange lights california”. ” stange lights ufo” is another video by squallis. There is also a mill across the road from the hillside that has a huge gas flame. The flame lights up the night brightly almost like daylight in that area. This gave us an excellent view of the craft. There were no visable seams. or openings for landing gear. I am finding more videos of this online. Really want to know what this is. Also in the netherlands. I regret not having a camera.
