They where silent and as close as they were we never heard a sound from them. If anyone else saw this please contact me.

Name: Jessi Taran

Date of Sighting: Fall/Winter, 1974

Location of Sighting: Los Angeles, California

Shape(s) of UFO(s): Blimp / egg -shaped

Further Description of Sighting: I was only about 3 or 4 years old when this happened, so my attention to detail wasn’t terribly acute. My memory of the experience seemed so odd however, that I checked with my mother to see if this actually happened, and she told me yes – my memory is absolutely accurate.

Anyway – I remember my mother holding me in her arms as she stood on the elevated back porch of our house in LA (I think we were living in Venice at the time). Hovering about 80 feet off the ground was this huge, round, air-ship-type-thing that my mom told me was a blimp (it wasn’t). I’m not sure how long we stood there, but as daylight faded into night, it commenced to entertain us with an amazing and lengthy display of multi-colored lights; glowing neon polka-dots that danced across the entire surface of the darkened hull in ever-changing geometric patterns which my mother describes as ‘psychadelic’.

As I was a very young child at the time, I remember thinking that the display looked like an enormous ‘Light Bright’ toy – only the lights were able to move and reconfigure into countless different shapes and colors in rapid succession, and seemed to be seamless with the ship’s ‘skin’. Unlike a blimp, there was no discernable navigation cockpit on the underside, nor was there any other apparent compartment where someone might conceivably sit or stand in order to maneuver the craft.

My mother’s memory agrees with me on this. Also, neither of us recall there being any sort of engine noise at all. There may have been a very faint hum/vibration, but from what I remember, even though it was hovering probably less that 100 feet off the ground, the craft seemed to make almost no noise at all. I don’t know what the ship’s movement might have been like as I don’t remember seeing it arrive, and my mom took me inside before I could see it leave.

When I asked her about this, she said that her arms were tired from holding me for so long, that it was past my bedtime,it was chilly that night, and since it seemed that the ‘blimp’ had finished it’s light-show, and was apparently not going to do anything more, she decided that it was time for us to go inside.

For whatever reason, although my mother agrees that what we saw was definitely impressive, she’s never felt that what we witnessed that evening was all that extraordinary. She never bothered to investigate – nor did she even speak with any of our neighbors about it (for that matter, no one ever came to our door to either).

Name: DTB

Date of Sighting: 1973/1974

Location of Sighting: Wood River Jct/Woodville, RI, USA

Shape(s) of UFO(s): Saucer, Top to Bottom as if joined

Size(s) of UFO(s): 50-60 ft. diameter

Color(s) of UFO(s): Only lights around mid section

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: approximately 100-150 yards

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): E/ NE

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): Trees, Rail Road tracks with bridge

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.

Further Description of Sighting: I’m really not sure of date. It was my grandparents anniversary, I think 169/1970. My whole famiy was there for a party in the side yard which was very big. My cousin and I were sitting on the steps of the patio and we were observing an object in the sky. My cousin and I were always into UFO’s. We belonged to National Investigation committee of aerial Phenomena.

We started making phone calls to people to see if there are seeing the same thing we are. We were getting good response back on this. We called a friend at Wright Patterson air force base and he said they were monitoring it. He said there were sending fighter jets out to investigate it.

Short time after the jets flew over breaking the sound barrier and when they approached it that’s when it started to move and it moved towards the sun, like a good military move to blind the pursuing planes.

We watched this for about a minute then my mother screamed and we all turned around and there it was. A dream come true. A mother ship just sitting there about one hundred feet up. Just above the tree tops. No sound and no movement. You could see excellent detail. It was like looking at a star wars ship. Loved it. a minute later it took off. Here then gone in a split second.

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.

Date of Event: July 3,4 1978

Location of Event: Greers Ferry lake..Devils Fork campground..Arkansas

Message: We (myself,Tracy Ziegenbein,John Tew and Allen Ballentine) had just graduated from Ole Main high school in North Little Rock.We decided to camp out at the lake(Greers Ferry) and celebrate our achievement.We went swimming and raising hell for the entire weekend!No one could really drink as well as Tracy,so we were wide awake and watching the stars while he was passed out in the tent.Some one pointed out a fallin star,so we all(except for Tracy)watched the star falling to the ground.But it stopped falling and turned around and spead across the sky.

Greers Ferry is in the back woods of Arkansas and there are no city lights there.The only thing there is a small town and Arkansas’first atomic power plant.No one really understood what we saw so we just broke out the whisky and went to sleep.The next morning we told Tracy what we saw but he thought we were just drunk.We had another great day swimming and watching all the cute girls.The camp ground was very full so we had a lot of cute girls to play with.When the sun went down we had sobered up and started talking about ufos.Tracy thought he was the only sane person there until here came another falling star that did not fall but just flew around the sky.

We never talked about it any more and since then my best friend Tracy died of cancer.I did not stay in touch with John or Allen.I picked up a book about ufos about 15 years later.I turned to a picture that had a caption ” Greers Ferry,July 4th 1978″.It was just a fuzzy picture of a bright light but I realized that someone else at the camp had saw what we did.We didn’t see anything but a light that was really really fast but I can never forget it.I really didn’t think much of it until I picked up the book that had the picture in it.
