Further Description of Sighting: I went to the store just down the street from my house about 9pm. When I came out about 15 minutes later and headed on foot back home and reached the corner bar I noticed people standing outside looking up at the sky. When I looked up I bout fainted when I saw this UFO.

It just glided and made no sound. Each window (what appeared to be windows)was a different color.(red, blue,yellow,green & orange)and went completely around the craft. Everyone there was completely silent, just watching it in disbelief of what we were all seeing. Then someone said, what is that? A man answered “it’s gotta be a UFO”.

I then went on home still amazed at what I saw. When I entered my home my then husband asked me what took me so long that I was gone an hour and a half. I looked at the clock because I thought I was only gone about 30 minutes but he was right. Where had I been for all that time??

I still cannot answer that. I called the airport and told the man that answered the phone about what I and other people saw but I don’t think he took me seriously.

Bridgeville, California, USA; 1969

Date of Sighting: 1969-1973

Location of Sighting: Bridgeville, Ca.

Shape(s) of UFO(s): star size

Number of UFO(s): 1

Further Description of Sighting: I watched the object for hours making maneuvers at and with such speed that a human could not endure the kinetic
forces involved. Instantaneously making angular transitions beyond 90 degrees.

I observed this multiple times during deer hunting seasons in the late 60’s and early 70’s. These episodes struck me as practice sessions. I don’t care what skeptics may think. I know what I saw.

Further Description of Sighting: This craft was seen in the vicinity of United Nuclear Reprocessing plant where there had been a “leak”, at least 1 death resulting that was verified. Many, many sightings were reported over a span of several weeks.

United Nuclear had its location in the coldest spot of RI, near a spot called Wood River that led to a massive underground waterway, and they had many, many 6-8 foot deep trenches, at least 10 feet wide that could be flooded with their “waste” water, filtered through very deep sandy subsoil and cooled by the deep waters that flowed from Wood River, just north of Rt.91, commonly called the Carolina Alton Rd.

I am not crazy. I saw this craft. It made no sound as it slowly moved about 20 feet above the tree tops. All I heard was the displacement of the wind, like a soft breeze.

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada; Summer, 1972

Name: Ron Freund, M.D.

Date of Event: summer, 1972 or 1973

Location of Event: Ottawa, Canada

Message: A friend of mine and I went to Ottawa for a weekend of looking for Canadian girls.  We ended up without any the first night, sleeping in my car on the side of the road.  A Canadian trooper woke us up at 4 AM to check us out, then left.  We sat in the car, eating some bread we had when we saw it. The terrain was flat with a distant mountain range.  A slowly moving disc-shaped object was coming across a large field toward us.

It stopped and hovered around fifty feet above the highway and two hundred feet in front.  The thing was probably 75 to 100 feet across, with moving lights around the perimeter, completely soundless.  If only my camera had been along.  It stayed in place for 5 to 10 minutes, then gradually moved away, diagonally upward toward the mountain range, then rapidly sped away and, when it was just a light in the sky, made a sharp 90 degree turn to the left and sped out of sight, completely soundless.

We just sat there, speechless the whole time. Later that morning around 6 AM when the radio stations began broadcasting, they were reporting hundreds of sightings down the whole Eastern seaboard from Canada down through Maine and New England.  The official Air Force explanation reported later that day was “luminous gas from a factory”. I know what we saw that morning, and there is no doubt in my mind regarding these other reported sightings.

Meraux, Louisiana, USA; October 12, 1973

Name: Sue

Date of Event: October 1973 sometime between 12th and 17th

Location of Event: Mereaux, Louisiana

Message: My family,husband and 4 young children, was visiting my brother and his wife in Mereaux,(in St. Bernard), LA. We were laughing and joking about the past weeks news involving Calvin Parker and Charles Hickson who claimed to be abducted and examined by aliens in Pascagoula,Mississippi which is not far from where we lived.

That happened Oct.10,1973. Their story had been plastered all over the news all week and it was the joke of our small town. It was approximately 4-6 days later that we were leaving my brothers house, I looked up and said, “Let’s look for U.F.O.’s”, making fun of the news reports. My brothers house was right along side of the Mississippi River.

In the distance, I saw a large glowing light on the other side of the river zipping toward us.It moved extremely fast over the river, over head and past us. It stopped dead in the sky for a few brief seconds and then zoomed across the river again…stopped dead and then zoomed to our side again, this time closer to the river. It was the classic saucer shape much like you see in comic books.

Even though it was dark out, it was a clear night and the saucer was close enough for me to see that it was metallic colored but glowing and almost looked like windows around the top half of the saucer. After several passes back and forth over the river the craft stopped dead over the middle of the Mississippi river.

It glowed and changed color like gold and orange as I can remember. Then we could see the bottom open and something large and on fire was dropped into the river. The bottom of the saucer closed and it zipped off again in a instant. We never told anyone. We didn’t want to be laughed at after all the news coverage about Calvin Parker and Charles Hickson.

Actually, we never spoke of it again, not even to each other and it was strangely forgotten. Many years later I asked my husband and brother if they remembered the incident and they said “Yes, Kind of”. I have always wondered why we never talked about it over the years. My memory is fairly clear and I can picture it still, after all these years. The others that saw it say that they slightly remember. Isn’t that strange?

I would love to know if anyone else reported seeing what I saw. The saucer was large, flew low and close and this was a popluated area. I’ve read a lot about U.F.O’S after my sighting but have never read that anyone reported a burning object being dropped out of the bottom. Sue
