Hortense, Georgia, USA; Late 1970s

Name: Mona Lisa Kyle Rosenblatt

Date of Sighting: late 1970’s 12:00-2:00 pm

Location of Sighting: Hortense, Georgia USA

Shape(s) of UFO(s): circular

Size(s) of UFO(s): approx 80 ft wide

Color(s) of UFO(s): silver/gray with yellow, red, blue pulsating lights around it’s edge.

Number of UFO(s): 1

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: approx ten ft above pine tree tops.

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): north

Further Description of Sighting: I was aprox 8 years old, riding in the car with my mother in Hortense Georgia. We were on our way to my grandmothers house which was about 5 miles away. I was in the backseat of our 1969 Oldsmobile and I looked out the right side window,(wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, didn’t have to back then.) Shadowing our car about 10 feet above the pine tree tops was a silver/gray disc shaped craft very large, but not overly large.

Being a child at the time what I remember most was the blue, yellow, and red lights pulsating around it’s rim/edge. The lights were rectangular in shape. I looked at my mother and asked “what the heck it THAT?” When I looked back it was gone. My mother strangely, quickly turned the car around and took me back home. She wouldn’t speak or answer my questions. She hurried me into the house and deadbolted the door which was strange because it was a sunny summer day, early in the day.

I said “well if we’re not going to grannys I’m going to play outside.” She said “no you’re not you’re staying in here” She made me do so for two days. Later when I brought it up she quickly said she didn’t remember it.

Beaumont, Texas, USA; 1974

Name: Lynn

Date of Event: 1974

Location of Event: Beaumont Tx.

Message: In 1974, Beaumont Tx. I was kicking a ball at a tree i would get it sat it down and aim at the tree to hit it, i went to get the ball after one of my kicks and the ball moved away from the toward and the leaves also moved outward from the tree as well, there was no noticeable breeze as i stood waiting to feel one, i looked around me then i looked up and saw a dull silver colored round object, there was a reflection of the tree on the object that i could see surprisingly good,

there was a circular area at the bottom that had 2 irregular shape that changed colors from blue, orange, and purple and maybe some other colors as well but these were the ones i remember, there was also a glass-like window shape between the circle area at the bottom and the edge of the object, almost one half the length of the object but not quite,

i stepped back to get a better look and the object moved in the direction that i moved as well, this kinda of made me stop as i was frightened by that, i do not remember how i stayed still, but after this pause the object shot straight up so fast that i remember it looking quarter coin size then dime size then gone.

Further Description of Sighting: I was 27 years old, mother of three small children. I was sleeping and began dreaming of an airplane, it was flying closer as the sound grew louder until it flew through the window. The dream was so real, it startled me fully awake, then slowly coming to the realization the sound was still there. From our farm looking west, B-52 bombers could frequently be seen flying quite low in a north-south direction. What I was hearing was consistent with a large group of low flying heavy bombers directly over our house going East to West.

I went outside and stood on the steps looking up and to the west. It was a moonless night and the only lights were the millions of stars seen in the clear Wyoming skies. I could detect a smooth flying motion overhead moving west, and the sound remained a constant deep droning/humming sound. I continued to watch still thinking it was a large number of large airplanes, but I was curious why they would be flying in such close formation so late at night and in the middle of nowhere. It was unusual, but thought they must be moving a fleet to the West Coast following the end of the Vietnam War.

I wondered how many there were as I could not distinguish individual shapes, so I began looking intently for indications of wings and lights that should be at least on the tips. I could detect no wings, no lights, no silhouette of a wing shape. All the while the massive object continued slowly on its westernly trajectory. There were no lights either on the craft or in our yard to help illuminate to assist in giving a better indication of size, color, material, shape, and distance.

As I continued to watch, a portal came into view. It was in the underside of the craft and was illuminated with a soft florescent light. Over the years, my memory has become a little fuzzy on whether the color was green or blue, but it was a very pleasing color to the eye, not harsh and I lean to it being a pretty blue florescent. The light made it easy for me to clearly see inside the portal.

What I saw was an immaculate mechanical room. There was what looked like a large boiler with pipes connected to it. Everything was the same color, but the shapes were very distinct and familiar. Very Earthly. I continued to watch as the portal slowly moved out of sight. It was interesting that the light was obviously very bright and illuminated a large room, but did not extend outside the craft. After the portal passed from view, I could no longer detect where the portal was. There was no glow of light emanating from beneath the craft. I continued to watch, and after a few moments another portal came into view. The light was the same and the room’s contents appeared to be identical to the first room seen. Another mechanical room, with an identical “boiler” and connecting pipes. Everything I could see appeared identical to the first portal.

I continued to watch trying to see any details that might be visible, but it was so dark the shape was determined more by the absence of the stars. It was long and cylindrical, there were no sharp edges. I had a clear view to the West for about 15 to 20 miles. The craft was so close it shut out all of the night sky as I looked north and most of the night sky as I looked west. It was very low, but not able to determine exactly how low, and traveling very slow, but not able to indicate how slow except that I was able to get a very good look inside the portals. So, maybe between 5 to 15 MPH. Again, there was never a change in the sound, it was a continuous deep, humming or droning sound. I never changed my opinion about it being consistent with large airplanes flying over head. It was flying level in a true East to West direction. I never saw the beginning or end of the craft. What I did see was larger than a football field, but did not see the craft in its entirety. There were no unusual odors, no unusual wind movement, and there was no disturbance of animals (cattle, dogs, etc.) that I was aware of. Everything was silent except the sound indicated.

I started to become uneasy, even a little frightened and decided to go back inside. My children were sleeping and I was just beginning to understand that what I had been watching was very extraordinary and there was nothing in my reference that explained it. I sat quietly in the living room, did not turn on any lights to look at a clock, and just waited for it to pass. I did not look out the window, I did not want to do anything to bring attention to myself, our home, my family. I continued to hear the sound for sometime after I went back inside and was relieved when the sound finally ceased. I do not remember that the sound faded away as planes would as they went into the distance, rather it just stopped and became quiet. I do not know the total duration, but it was several minutes from the time I first became aware of the sound in a fully conscious state to when it finally ceased.

I did not tell anyone about this experience until some years later. I looked for something that would explain what I had seen in logical terms. I married a retired Air Force Pilot with thousands of hours flying time and over 4 million air miles. We attended many military air shows together, and I would look for anything that resembled what I had seen. Over the years I never saw anything remotely like what I had seen years earlier. My husband Bill was the first person related my experience to, followed by my children after they were grown. I have also since told a couple of my siblings. I told my brother after he related an experience he and my mother had with light orbs following them on a deserted highway traveling late one night in Wyoming.

This is the experience I had as I remember it and choosing to report it officially while the details are clear. It occurred on a moonless summer night, approximately 27 July 1976, probably after midnight. I am
positive of the year, the month was most likely July, but may have also been June. My young brother was in the hospital in Billings Montana when this occurred. The window of possibility is indicated below.

New Moon in May 1976 – 29th – 1st Quarter June 5th
New Moon in June 1976 – 27th – 1st Quarter July 4th
New Moon in July 1976 – 29th – 1st Quarter Aug 2nd

Credibility Factor: I was 27 years old at the time of the occurrence with 3 small children. I remarried a distinguished Air Force officer and pilot with a distinguished career. I am a college graduate with High Honors. My career was in finance, accounting and government finance. My work titles were Assistant Treasurer for a local large municipality and Executive Director of a Consortium of Cities and Counties where I managed Millions of $$ in Federal Funds, and Management Analyst. I have been a long-time contributing member of my community and believe, well respected.

Otto, Arkansas, USA; July 4, 1978

Name: DL Douglas

Date of Sighting: 7/4/78

Location of Sighting: Otto, AR Faulkner County

Shape(s) of UFO(s): Round, bright light

Size(s) of UFO(s): ?

Color(s) of UFO(s): white

Number of UFO(s): 1

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: not in sky… directly behind our car

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): following our vehicle north on Hwy. 107

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): none

Further Description of Sighting: My boyfriend and I had spent the day on the lake (Greers Ferry Lake) with my family. No drinking or drugs AT ALL. He took me back to my parents’ house in north Pulaski county (near the Little Rock AFB), then after it got dark, was taking me home to my apartment in Conway, AR.

Just a couple miles up Hwy 107, what we thought was a motorcycle got right behind his car (AMC Gremlin)and the “headlight” on bright was blinding him. It followed us so closely, and the faster he drove, the closer it seemed to get. Finally, out of anger, he stopped the car on the side of the hwy, right at the top of a hill (Davis Ranch).

He threw the door open and jumped out of the car, ready to fight. Immediately… the “light” shot straight up into the sky until we couldn’t distinguish it from the stars. There was NO SOUND… NO HEAT… NO WIND… just the night sounds of frogs and crickets and bugs in rural Arkansas. I was scared to death and begging him to get back in the car and take me home.

He got back in, started back up Hwy 107, and the light appeared again directly behind us. (I should add that there was no other traffic coming or going down the highway during the time this was happening). He got extremely angry and pulled off the hwy again into the parking area of an old country store on the east side of hwy 107. (It used to be called Carmical’s, I think.) He stepped out again, and I stayed inside the vehicle.

My memories become hazy at this point… I seem to remember watching the light move off away from us across the cow pastures, and we watched as a beam of light lowered slowly, and the “object” seemed to be scanning the pasture. I don’t even remember getting home that night, but I woke in my apartment the next day.

That was the last time Marty and I were together. We broke up, after a misunderstanding… he had a horrible wreck in which he could have died… and we never saw one another again. I did speak with him by phone a couple years later, but neither of us spoke of what happened that night. It has haunted me to this day.

I had friends in the Air Force, and I called and questioned, and was told no one saw or reported anything unusual that night. Marty and I were so in love… engaged to be married… and in just minutes… our lives changed forever. I feel as if part of my memory was “foggy” or erased, or at the very least, I have been brain-washed or “de-programmed” or something.

This was not the first unusual observation of night “lights” that had occurred in my lifetime… but it was the first encounter up close. I am skeptical as to exactly what this object was, and I have never claimed to have been abducted, or believed it to be extra terrestrial. However, whatever “it” was… no known technology existed to my knowledge that would enable an aircraft to behave as that one did.

I have been told it was fireworks. No fireworks could have followed our car for miles around a hilly, curvy highway such as this stretch of road is. Perhaps a remote control “missile” of some type… but again, there was absolutely no sound, heat or wind when it shot straight up into the atmosphere. Thanks for letting me finally get this off my chest.
