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.

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.

Moorestown Township, New Jersey, USA; Summer 1973

Name: Anonymous

Date of Sighting: Summer of 1973 @ 2:45 AM

Location of Sighting: Moorestown N.J.

Color(s) of UFO(s): Intense Bright Blue Light

Further Description of Sighting: It was in the summer of 1973 I was 11 years old on summer break from school. I woke up in the middle of the night and my bedroom was lit up bright as day in a very strange blue glow. There was a faint humming noise present. I looked at the clock on my nightstand and it said 2:45 AM.

I became scared and ventured into my parent’s bedroom where I saw the both of them standing in front of the window looking outside. I remember my mother saying “What is it?” My dad saw me and told me to go back to bed. I began to cry because I was scared to death. We all moved to our living room where there was a picture window that looked out to the back of our property, which was on 3 1/2 acres of wooded land.

We could see a very bright blue light shining through the trees back in the woods that could be compared to the brightness of a welders arc.I will never forget the sound this thing made, it was a humming noise in a very low key that tickled the inside of my ears. The duration was only a few minutes and suddenly you could see this thing rising above the trees and it was gone in an instant, as our living room went black.

Well…needless to say, none of us got any sleep that night. My father was afraid to report the incident, as he did not want to be labeled as a crazy person, and I was told not to tell anybody what I saw, for the very same reason. That same morning when the sun rose, my father and I walked back in the woods together to have a look around, and to our surprise there was a clearing with a tree knocked down, and the leaves on the ground were scorched in about a 30 ft circle.

If you were to draw a square around the circle, at all 4 points, there was an indent pushed down into the leaves also scorched. About 20 feet to the left of the site was an area I was always warned about as a kid. It was a 6 foot hole in the ground, maybe a sink hole?

I was always told it was an old water well that was dug by native Americans. I used to throw things down the hole but you never heard anything ever hit bottom. My father always feared it was an accident waiting to happen so he used to throw large branches and wood debris over it so no one would fall into it.

The interesting part of this story is the fact that the hole was uncovered, as the branches and debris were strewn everywhere. The only other thing I can recall from this incident was my father saying to me…”Don’t tell your mother”. I have never been quite the same since… I am a true believer, and only a few people have ever heard this story.

Moorestown Township, New Jersey, USA; Summer 1973

Date of Sighting: Summer 1973

Location of Sighting: Moorestown, NJ

Shape(s) of UFO(s): Round

Size(s) of UFO(s): Huge, seemed to cover several homes on our street

Color(s) of UFO(s): Looked Silverish-metallic, lots of lights underneath/on bottom

Number of UFO(s): 1

Further Description of Sighting: I saw it cone down from the sky and hover over my house. It was dusk. I ran to get my neighbor because nobody was home, I was 13 years old. We both stood out on our front yards in amazement.

It hovered for about 5 minutes and then shot straight up in an instant and it was out of sight. We stood under it and watched the different colors of light link before it took off. I called the police and made a report. I found out later that there were many other reporting of the same thing that night.

My parents did not believe me and told me not to talk about it. They wished I hadn’t called the police. My neighbor was known as an alcoholic so no one believed her. She wasn’t drunk that night. We were outcasts in the neighborhood after that.

Portland, Oregon, USA; Summer, 1973

Name: x

Date: Summer 1973

Location: Sunset and 185th overpass, Portland, Oregon

Message: summer 1973 West Portland-Sunset Hwy and 185th overpass, light-gray round object the size of 4 full moons above my 72 Vega as I traveled south at about 7pm. My roommate Dave said “look at the full moon”. I remember when the full moon comes over the horizon it is sometimes distorted. No big deal. Then I realized that the moon had set over the Coast Range hours earlier.

Stuck my head out the window and can’t explain why I did this, but slammed on the brakes and ran out in the middle of the street. Looking back on it, it probably wasn’t the smartest thing to do. I looked up and it was above us. First thing I did was try to find someone to collaborate with. This is a very busy highway and we were all alone. 185th highway and the Sunset highway. No cars no people.

My roommate yelled “its made of metal” the object flashed white blinding me. 3 seconds later flashed red 3 seconds later flashed blue. Flashed like a camera(white) again. Last thing I remember it flashed over the west hills 10 miles away. I lived with Dave for 2 years after that and never mentioned it! Didn’t remember until dreams 15yrs later. Actually I did remember, but it wasn’t important to me until later.

I went to the Doc for some sleeping pills cos I could not get any rest. Same dream over and over. Shrink says “to hypnotize.” Detained and possibly abducted. Would you get hypnotized and possibly have for the rest of your life memories of things that make no sense, upset the religious teachings, the status quo, all the things you were taught could be BS.

This really really happened to me. I know what I saw. No one will ever convince me it didn’t happen. Oh by the way. No way do I want to know anymore. Forget the hypno! I suppose if the aliens were hostile we, wouldn’t be here.
