Silver Triangle UFO Seen in West Kentucky

It was a sunny summer day back in 1963 when a ten year old boy and his dog were out on the farm for a day of fun. But an unexpected anomaly in the sky changed this normal routine day into something the boy would remember forever.

This is an historic sighting that took place in the rural West Kentucky community known as Kirksey.
Today, Kirksey is an small unincorporated community in Calloway County that has a total population of  around 1,026 people. It is and has pretty much always been, a nice little quite community, but on this day there was some strangeness going on.

For the purpose of this report, we will just call the little boy by the name of Ben. Here is what been saw that day, in his own words.

"I was 10 years old in 1963. I've never told anyone but friends and family but after the recent sightings in Texas I thought I would tell my story. Currently I work as a Social Worker in Aging. I have 60 to 70 clients and have worked in this position for 18 years. I have two grown successful children and have been married 35 years."

(On that Day)
"It was a warm summer day and I was outside where I stayed most of the time in our rural farm community. I had walked out to the end of our garden fence accompanied by my dog. For some reason and I will never know why because I did not hear anything, but I turned my head back over my shoulder and looked up in the sky and there it was. It was triangle in shape, silver and flying horizontally although it did not appear to be flying but just hanging in the sky. I can't judge distance but it was not low like a small plane flies and it was not as high as a jet flies.
But it looked huge.

It appeared to have some type of nose in front where it seemed to be piloted. I felt like I was looking at it and it was looking at me so I took off running yelling, Mom, Mom, come look.
My mother came out the back door and I pointed to the sky and it was gone. Just vanished in a blink of an eye."

What a terrific report, even if it took years for the witness to come forward. The witness had the sighting in 1963 and didn't file the report until 2008.

Now, we know that the chances of the government having a flying triangle, that can disappear in the blink of an eye, back in the 60's is pretty slim. So, just what did little boy, who is now a grown successful man, see back all those years ago? It would seem that it was something not from this earth.

If you have seen anything similar to this, then please let us know.

  1. Could this have been a Vulcan bomber? They flew exercises over the US in the early 1960s and were sometimes painted white. They were basically a triangle with a small body in front.

    1. Maybe, but I don't think it would have totally disappeared so fast...I would think they would have seen it off in the distance. But that is a good possibility as to what it was.
