Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA; 1956

Name: Catherine

Date of Event: 1956

Location of Event: Northwest Florida or lower Alabama

Message: Our family lived in Fort Walton Beach Florida and we were traveling back to Montgomery, Al. I was dosing in the back seat with my brother and our mother and daddy were in the front. Daddy was driving.

I woke up and heard them talking about this bright light that was following along side our car but well above the tree line. I remember my dad stopping to get a better look at it and the light stopped when he did. We traveled on until we needed gas and the whole time this light was with us.

We stopped for gas and the white light stopped too. After starting back on the road it finally disappeared.

Knoxville, Tennessee, USA; 1950s

Name: Beverly Burchfield

Date of Event: 1950s

Location of Event: Burlington area of Knoxville,Tn

Message: On a Sunday afternoon when my little sister and I were in the yard playing, we heard a very loud noise. An airplane about the size of a car appears very low and just over us.

It resembled a modern day jet. It had no windows as I remember. Most strange, it hovered above us and was so close above my sister that I feared for her. Than it took off and was gone.

We ran in the house to tell about it. They acknowledged hearing the noise but otherwise ignored us. We also told a neighbor who also said she heard the noise. As no one seemed to really believe us, we let it go.

However over the years we continue to talk about it between ourselves. If we had not both seen it, we would think it was a dream. However we know there is some strange things no one talks about. The plane or object was not a helicopter or a model airplane. It was car size and was not saucer shape.

El Paso, Texas, USA; 1955

Name: Ben Ulrich

Date: 1955; 13:00

Location: El Paso, TX

What did the UFO look like: The UFO was not as long as a cigar and not as short as an egg but in between the two as an oblong shape. Metalic in color. I did see any lights or wings just smooth and uniformly cyclinder.

Did the UFO do any strange things: The two UFO’s 2 were flying over El Paso going west towards the mountains. There speed was not abnormal compared to a jet. Several jets from Biggs Air Force Base,I believe F-86’s, took off towards the UFO’s catching up with them and all of a sudden the UFO’s took off leaving the jets as they were standing still.

The UFO’s got higher in altitude leaving a short vapor trail while the jets left a long vapor trail. The UFO’s speed was probable in the several thousand miles per hour. They continued going higher and heading west over the mountains until they disappeared. I never heard anything on the news or in the paper about the incident. This all happened while I was shooting basketball at school by myself. I have always wondered if anyone else saw this.

Further Description of Sighting:
I was 9 years old and I was sitting on the steps of my friend’s house in the evening (it was dark.)

I looked up and saw a silver disc come from behind, and I watched it shoot across the sky toward the horizon. It was a dull silver color. It was dull-bright, like a dull full moon. I could tell it was a solid object.

It was the size of a nickel held at arm’s length.

It was scared, but I watched in awe.
