Local writer recalls close UFO encounter
It was on the Nauman road west of Highway C, near
Advance, toward Green
Valley, past the Hagan farm, that I came over a hill and saw the
strange object, several hundred feet ahead, inside and near the fence
on the right side of the road.
It was oval, about six feet high and about 20 feet across its round
top. It was, as best as I can remember, a silvery color. It was on the
ground, but when I came over the hill, it must have seen me. It left on
the ground and soared into the air.
I should have stopped my car immediately and got out to watch it, but I
made a dumb decision. I went to the spot where it had been, but by the
time I got there it was too late. It was out of sight. It must have
traveled at about the speed of sound.
I got out of the car and went into the field. There was no evidence
that anything had been there. I looked across the road and noticed that
the view from the nearby farm was obstructed by a machine shed. The
farmers could not have seen the object from the house even though it
was nearby. So I got in my car and kept going.
What to do? It was a time when such sightings were reported, but the
Air Force kept saying that people were mistaken, that what they saw
were military balloons, sunspots, atmospheric formations and lots of
other explanations. They ridiculed people and accused them of having
vivid imaginations. They tried to make us look like a bunch of kooks.
So I did not tell a soul about my experience, not even my wife, until
several years later. But the memory is still with me. I know what I
saw. It was not an illusion. It was real. Many other people have had
sightings so I am not alone. Is our military trying to tell us that we
are all kooks? It is time they truly inform us about what they know.
It happened many years ago. Tom and Stella say in the '50s, but I don't
know. Did it happen after that, or before? Anyway, it was a long time
ago. The farm is still there, but the machine shed is gone. The
formerowners informed me that it had been torn down.
The above is my story. What happened is still quite vivid in my memory.
For those that believe, no explanation is necessary. For those who do
notbelieve, no explanation is possible.
