Describe sighting in detail:
This UFO sighting happened when I was a child but I can remember it very vividly. When I try to talk to my siblings, (a younger brother & two older sisters), they either don't want to talk about it or have very little to say.
In the early 70's, we lived in a four room house on Menelaus Road in Berea KY. There was a large field with a pond behind the house. There was an old table near our garden spot & we would gather there & play cards. On this particular evening, we were at this table playing cards when I looked up to the west & through the tree tops, I saw what I thought was a large bird.
I can remember saying "hey, look at that bird". As soon as I said "bird", this thing was hovering over our heads.
My oldest sister looked up at it & said "run!", so we ran into the house. I can remember it being triangular shaped & jet black.
I have over the years tried to figure out how it made that 90 degree turn in order to be over our heads so quickly. It moved a good distance to be where we were because when I first saw it, & it looked like the side view of a gliding bird moving from right to left through the tree tops on the other side of the large field behind our house.
I remember that night, the house & chicken coop was lit up with red & blue lights. Strange flashing of lights, not like the flashing of police car or fire truck lights. I remember this because our Dad opened the back door (I guess to see where these lights were coming from) & I was behind him trying to see more than the lights flashing on the chicken coop. I can remember him telling me to go back into the room. Not much has been said about this over the years between my siblings & myself. It's like they just want to forget about it ever happening. Strange but true.
Thanks for sharing the report. I know this report is from many years ago but it is still important to document as many of these sightings as possible. If anyone seen this object during this time feel free to contact us.
