I never forgot about it, to this day. I was too embarrassed to report it. Was wondering if anyone else ever seen this besides me. I don’t know that it was a weather balloon.

Suddenly 5 small objects came out of multiple directions at very high speed. The small objects followed the large one for about 90 seconds, and then took off at extremely high speed in multiple directions. The large object then continued at low speed until it disappeared over the horizon.

When I got home My wife told me excitedly about her sighting of the same UFO. She was a mile ahead of me on the highway. I did not report it because I had a Top Secret Security clearance and did not want to jeopardize it.

Ottumwa, Iowa, USA; Summer 1977

Name: Barbara

Date of Event: Summer 1977

Location of Event: rural Ottumwa Iowa

Message: It was dusk, probably around 8 pm, I was riding my horse through a pasture when low in the sky I saw an elongated oval-shaped bright white light out over the middle of nowhere. It seemed odd, but I didn’t think much of it until my horse spotted it and was overcome with fear. He was looking directly at it, ears perked, head raised, snorting and trembling in fear.

He wanted in the worst way to turn and bolt for the barn, but I managed to keep him steady for a minute or two so that I could continue watching the light. It didn’t move at all, didn’t do anything except hang in the sky. My horse finally gained control and bolted so I only got to watch for a couple minutes. I’d never seen anything like it before or since.

It would have completely escaped my attention were it not for my horse…which doesn’t prove anything of course other than that something very odd was out there that evening. I didn’t tell anyone for a few years until I heard others say that they too have seen some very strange lights in the vicinity.

Hedgehog Mountain, Turnpike Road, New Hampshire, USA; July, 1977

Name: Lynn Wilkinson

Date: July, 1977

Location: Hedgehog Mountain, Turnpike Road, New Hampshire, USA

Message: Back in July 1977 My parents and I have definitely seen a UFO on Hedgehog Mountain – Turnpike Road hovering in backyard woods over pine trees.

Not large – white lights in a cluster without noise – silent but there. I first noticed a light outside my bedroom window that traveled too fast horizontally to be an airplane or helicopter and no noise.

Within a few seconds it raced back toward our land. I yelled for parents to see this – we walked outside our patio door and there we all saw the white light pulsating – hovering.

No noise. Can’t recall how long we saw the object but remember back then my father running in to get his camera. (It had no film in it)

The UFO light shot forward and had to be the speed of light – it just simply disappeared. I was 19 back in 1977 and to this day believe there are other beings out in this vast universe – would be rather strange for us to be the only planet with life.

I stayed for one month with my parents that summer and the whole time was frightened about walking alone at night on the country dirt road they call the “Turnpike” The A frame house with EdLyn Pond (registered name) was my parents home they built back then.

The other house on the left (if still there) was the house where I looked out my bedroom window and saw the light. EdLynn stands for Edda and Lynn (twin daughters of Olga and Harald Krisitiansen).

that’s my story and I’ll stick by it til the day I meet my parents in heaven and then still stick by it. I now live in North Carolina and no sightings but I always look.
