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.

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.
