In 2011, my sister and I, both in our early teenage years, witnessed a flying saucer ship nearly crash into our childhood home. On this summer night, we were watching a movie around 9 pm, on our living room couch when my sister looks over at me says, “I’ve been looking outside for an hour, and there is either a fireball or an Angel floating out front.” We both got up and went to our front window, when I saw a green light appear from behind the trees into the sky. As I tried to explain that it was just an airplane to my sister, the light suddenly turned into a 30 foot metal flying saucer directly in front of us, with a large search light beaming from below. It stopped and hovered in the window for a moment, almost to confirm to me that it was not an airplane. I immediately grabbed my sister’s arm and said, “we can’t be the only ones to see this. Let’s go wake mom and dad up” As I ripped her arm to run, she was so frozen in fear, I almost knocked her over.
Once we got upstairs to my parents room, which was in 15 seconds time, my mom sprung awake and ran to her window to check the back of the house where the craft was headed, as we quickly tried to explain what happened. All that could be seen at that point, was two red lights far out in the distance, far past our acre of field put back, and appeared to be just another airplane in the night sky. My mother did see the two red lights and the white in our faces that night which convinced her, as well, we saw exactly what we said we did that night. This spacecraft moved faster than the speed of light and came within 20 feet of our human bodies, without making any sound. Our parents were asleep upstairs, as well as our older sister, who did not see or hear anything. This craft nearly hit our house, probably 10 feet or less from where my father was sleeping. My sister and I were the only people to see this ship, but it has changed my life forever. It all happened too fast to capture any video or photo, and it was far too frightening for us to have that immediate thought. We were frozen.
Date of Sighting: July 9, 1969 Time of Sighting: 8:30 PM EDT Location of Sighting: Adams, Massachusetts
Description: It was 1969. I was 14 years old. We witnessed a UFO sighting in my backyard by my mother and my best friend. My mother is now 93 and remembers like it was yesterday. There were thousands of lighting bugs in my yard. We were looking at this phenomenon when I looked up between a large grove of trees and saw a UFO with circular lights that glowed not unlike the lightning bugs. The UFO lights did not shine outward and cast no shadows. At first the UFO hovered at about 100 ft. in the air, but then began a slow descent until it was only about 8 feet above our heads. We backed up, hoping to be able to look inside the visible windows that circled the object, just above its lights, but we could not see inside. The UFO was about 20 feet in diameter. The object made no sound at all. It hovered for approximately 15 minutes and then began a slow ascent up to about 200 feet above our heads, before it shot straight up to nothing more than a tiny ball of light in the sky. At this point it left the sky in what I term start/stop movements, as it stopped abruptly after each burst of movement across the sky. However, the object was traveling so fast that it was completely gone from the sky in about 3 seconds. We could not tell what color the object was, but when it was only 8 feet over our heads it appeared to be either dark gray or dark greenish, but we couldn’t be sure.
Additional Information Sent by Witness: This is a comment to my report. We never reported having seen a UFO, because no one would have believed us (especially a close sighting like ours, and in 1969, people thought you were nuts for seeing UFOs). Anyway someone did report seeing an object fly overhead that night in the same very fast start/stop movements that I described, and a small article appeared in our local newspaper the very next night. My mom read it to me and she commented, “someone saw our UFO fly over last night, but they didn’t see it only a stone’s throw away like we did, and I’ll bet no one did.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A completely baffling case involving nine witnesses took place on April 22, 1966, in Beverly, Mass. This dramatic close encounter is regarded as being among the most persuasive arguments for the extraterrestrial hypothesis, and it is almost certainly the most solidly unidentifiable report from Massachusetts in the sixties.
The events of that evening began to unfold shortly after 9:00 p.m.. Nancy Modugno, age 11, was laying in bed when she noticed a bright light blinking through her window. She looked out and saw, only forty feet away, an amazing object about the size of an automobile, brightly lit with flashing blue, green, red and white lights.
The football-shaped craft made a whizzing, ricocheting sound as it moved over the neighborhood at a very low altitude, just clearing the tops of the houses. As she watched, the thing descended and could be seen behind trees, apparently landing in a large field behind Beverly High School.
Terrified, the astonished girl ran down the stairs and tried to tell her father about what she had seen. He tried to calm her down and went about adjusting the television set, which had mysteriously just lost its picture. Nancy’s mother, Claire, was visiting two friends, Barbara Smith and Brenda Maria, in an adjoining apartment at the time. Nancy’s father ordered her back to bed, but she became hysterical and refused to leave.
At this point, Barbara and Brenda walked in to order a pizza. Seeing Nancy in a fit, the two women attempted to ease her fears and calm her down. They could see the flashing lights in the field, and told Nancy that they would walk over there to prove that it was just a plane.
Barbara and Brenda picked up Claire Modugno and walked down a hill to the field. The three women looked up and saw something they could not have anticipated. There were three objects maneuvering in the sky, halting and circling as if they were playing tag. They were oval-shaped, with bright flashing lights.
Two were distant, but one was much closer, apparently right over the school.
The women crossed the field to get a better look. They could see flashing lights on the edge of the craft changing colors from red to green and blue. Brenda waved her arms at the object and it immediately stopped circling and moved across the field towards the women. They were horrified. In her statement, Barbara said:
“It started to come towards us… I started to run. Brenda called, ‘Look up! It is directly over us!’ I looked up and saw a round object… like the bottom of a plate. It was solid, grayish white… I felt this thing was going to come down on top of me. It was like a giant mushroom.”
Out of sheer terror, Barbara and Claire turned and ran up the hill. Brenda was all alone in the field, with the thing only 20 feet above her head. She stated:
“The object appeared larger and larger as it came closer. The lights appeared to be all around and turning. The colors were very bright. When overhead, all I could see was a blurry atmosphere and brightly lit-up lights flashing slowly around… I thought it might crash on my head!”
The others called to her, then she too turned and fled. One of the witnesses was so petrified by the encounter that she literally wet her pants. While the women ran back to the apartments, the object smoothly moved over the school building. They got on the telephone to alert their neighbors to the spectacle unfolding outside. One woman was already in her yard, watching the flying saucers. And one man, upon looking outside and seeing the discs, called the police.
The police arrived to find a small crowd of people standing outside watching the closest object moving up and down above the school. Jokingly, Officers Bossie and Mahan asked the group, “Where’s the airplane?” When the witnesses pointed to the thing, then at high altitude and looking like a star, the officers laughed.
Then, suddenly, the disc turned bright red and dropped to a position directly over the school building. At this point, the officers became visibly shaken. Mahan stated, “I observed what seem to be a large plate hovering over the school.
It had three lights – red, green, and blue – but no noise… This object hovered… The lights were flashing…” Bossie said, “It hovered and then began gliding. Some of the people got on the ground and were real scared!”
They jumped back into the cruiser and drove toward the object, down into the schoolyard. They could see clearly that it was not an airplane or helicopter and that it was shaped like a half dollar, with three lights, red, green & blue, in indentations at the rear of the disc – similar to back-up lights.
Just as the policemen got out of the cruiser, the disc made a couple of passes over the school and began to move slowly away. It picked up speed and was last seen as it disappeared behind buildings. By this time, the two other UFOs had also disappeared, though nobody had seen them leave. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
