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.

Alpena, Michigan, USA; Winter 1974

Name: Mary Friedrich

Location of Sighting: Alpena, Michigan USA

Color(s) of UFO(s): Dark Metallic

Number of UFO(s): One

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: Hovering about 200′ above the tree tops

Further Description of Sighting: It was mid winter. My brother and I were outside sledding down a hill in our front yard. It was just after dinner, and since we lived in a pretty rural area, it was quite dark outside other then the porch lights on the house.

As I was taking my turn down the hill I heard a sound above us like a “whirring”… over and over “whirr”..”whirr”..”whirr”. Not loud, but very quiet. When I looked up I saw a large, “saucer shaped” object hovering about 200 – 300 feet above the tree tops. It was a dark metallic color with lights rotating around the center. It was moving very slowly in an upward direction, and splitting into two pieces. One half seemed to stay in place while the other was lifting upward.

That is all I saw before yelling to my brother to run in the house with me. I was VERY scared! I tried and tried to get my parents outside to see it, but they did not believe what I was saying. When I FINALLY got them outside, it was gone.

The following day my mother was talking to our neighbor, and she told her about what her and her husband witnessed while they were outside that same night. She described the exact same thing as I did.

Location of Sighting: Alliance, Ohio, USA (Stark County)

Shape(s) of UFO(s): Disc shaped

Size(s) of UFO(s): looked like size of the moon

Color(s) of UFO(s): bright white like moon

Number of UFO(s): There were 2

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: 200 ft approx.

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): couldn’t tell due to clouds

Further Description of Sighting: All the neighbor dogs were barking and it woke me up. I looked out the kitchen door to see what they were barking about.

It was very cloudy out and I saw what I thought was the moon coming thru the clouds. After it came out, the dogs stopped barking. I saw it hover just under the clouds over my neighbors house (there were no trees so I had a direct view). I was mesmorized by it and stepped out on the patio to get a better look….It was silent and kept jarting back and forth into the clouds.

It looked like a bright disc shapped object. Once I was outside, I saw another bright light coming thru the clouds. I wanted to run in and tell my parents, but at the same time was intrigued by what it was going to do next. I felt frozen as I watched it dart back and forth several times. After a few minutes, it jarted back into the clouds with lightening speed and both lights disappeared. I’ve never seen anything move so fast) It reminded me of a hummingbird.

I went inside and told my mom to come out and what I saw. She stood outside with me for about 20 minutes, but it did not come back. I called the UFO hotline and the police came to take the report. They told me that a couple of police officers followed a UFO over to the state line before they lost it. They publicized in the Alliance newspaper the next day, along with others who had seen it also.

The HS Band Teacher saw one also. I live in Phoenix now and have heard about the 5 lights over phoenix. It has happened twice now. I have not seen them.
