Knoxville, Tennessee, USA; 1950s

Name: Beverly Burchfield

Date of Event: 1950s

Location of Event: Burlington area of Knoxville,Tn

Message: On a Sunday afternoon when my little sister and I were in the yard playing, we heard a very loud noise. An airplane about the size of a car appears very low and just over us.

It resembled a modern day jet. It had no windows as I remember. Most strange, it hovered above us and was so close above my sister that I feared for her. Than it took off and was gone.

We ran in the house to tell about it. They acknowledged hearing the noise but otherwise ignored us. We also told a neighbor who also said she heard the noise. As no one seemed to really believe us, we let it go.

However over the years we continue to talk about it between ourselves. If we had not both seen it, we would think it was a dream. However we know there is some strange things no one talks about. The plane or object was not a helicopter or a model airplane. It was car size and was not saucer shape.

Message: My dad, who is an extremely no-nonsense guy, swears that he and his friends saw a UFO from the Ag Campus in Knoxville in about 1966.  It was a dome shaped craft that made an electrical humming sound, had a metallic finish, and blue lights around the base.  It hovered about 10 feet or so above the street, and crossed the river and went up over the bluff and took off.

It was apparently seen by many and there were reports in the newspaper.  Authorities investigated and reported that it was a fraternity prank where students were building a fire under laundry bags and floating them up like hot air balloons.  My dad says that is total BS.

Does anyone know anything about this?  This comes from an incontrovertible source.

Message: I can remember my mom stopping on Highland View dr. about 1/2 mile from Chapman Hgy. and she pointed out two white lights that apeared to be 1 to 2 miles away just sitting there for about 30 seconds and then came at us over the car  maybe 100 yards above and passed over in just seconds

and on another occasion there was just 1 object shortly after that me and a friend was walking upthe road on Belvedere Dr. the road led into some trees where it was dark and I recall 2 lights behind us like a car (no sound of any sort) we started to move out of the way so it could pass and we looked back to see it and it was gone no tail lights pulling in the driveways or back down the road  just total silence on all three occasions there was silence 

and with in the last ten years I have awoke with strange visions of green lit rooms with shadow type obgects around and then I will be wide awake sitting propped up on one shoulder in the bed

and my grand mother was in charge of a military library and she has read the full version of Project Blue Book and has told me and my mom that YES THEY HAVE SOMETHING AT AREA 51  so, yes we believe aliens exist
