Shape(s) of UFO(s): round center, 4-6 pointed star outer

Size(s) of UFO(s): too far up

Color(s) of UFO(s): blue

Number of UFO(s): 3-4

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: thousands of feet almost straight up

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): multiple patterns and speeds close together

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): cornfields and houses

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.

Alliance, Ohio, USA; Summer 1974

Name: Rhonda

Date of Sighting: summer of 1974 (1am)

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.

Radcliff, Kentucky, USA; Summer 1974

Name: brenda

Date of Event: in the summer of ’74

Location of Event: radcliff ky and louisville ky

Message: i was sitting on a ladder outside my bedroom window admiring the sunset in radcliff,ky just outside of Ft.Knox. i was 10 years old and an object silently slowly approached and hoverded over a small clearing behind our house. the only way to describe it is to compare it to “lost in space” jupiter 2 , it was pearlish silver white .

i struggled with what i thought was impossible, my eyes had to be wrong. i closed my eyes and opened them again and it was still there so i got scared that it might see me if i could see it. i watched for about 5 minutes then got too scared to stay there so i quickly climbed into my window, closed it and pulled the shades and jumped into bed and pulled the covers over my head.

i did not tell anyone but i know what i saw and it was a ufo. a seperate incident 2 years or so ago i was taking pictures at a fall neighborhood festival in louisville,ky of my son. it was an amazingly clear day no clouds at all. i used a digital camera and later when i downloaded the images i saw a silver disc off in the distance in one of the pictures i showed a few friends and they were as shocked as i was. i again did not want to be the ufo nut so i kept the picture to myself. thats pretty much it.
