Many of you may not know who I am while a few of you may remember my adventures here. Its been some time since I last posted and today I return with a
story that changed my life and its the sole reason I have been obsessed with fringe topics such as UFOs since childhood.
A quick summery of what I am about to share follows-
Every since I was a small boy, as far back as I can remember, my mother has shared this story with the family. When she was a teen in the 60s her and
a friend saw a UFO up close and personal in the area now known as "Oxford Airport" in Connecticut. This town was a hot spot for UFO sightings in the
60s, and I have spoken with over a dozen older folks from that time who also saw flying disks in the sky. From ex-girlfriend's grandparents, to the
mailman, to parents of friends- all state they saw one or more flying disks in the skies above my town.
The story my mother told me goes like this-
Her and her friend were hanging out on the mountain, then they saw a large object flying with a orange under glow, hovering about 100ft above the
ground very close. They got scared and went home telling their parents and family about it. They called the police and the radio, both said they were
getting lots of reports during those days.
Now, I never talked to her friend because they have not spoken since the 60s. Recently her friend contacted her on FB to catch up. A real blast from
the past. When my mother told me she spoke to her friend after all these years- I rushed to ask if I could type to her and ask her some questions. I
spent my life wanting to hear the story from the other witness. Well here is the cut n pasted conversation we had over FB. It begins with my mother
asking about the incident first.
FB Convo unaltered and unedited-
My Mom to her friend she hasn't spoken to in decades- Now this might seem strange, but I have to ask you a question about something that I
think happened to us years and years ago. Don't laugh, I really believe this happened , have told my boys about it and Brian truly believes me. But
sometimes I think maybe age is playing tricks with my memories. Hope not - my age says 62, sometimes my body says that as well, but my mind - well in
my mind I'm still young, young, young - blue jeans, sneaker and tee-shirts all the way. Anyway here it goes.
Was there one nigh when we were driving around in my car, like we always were, and ended up on Wheeler Road - I think we use to call it Hoganog Road -
it was off the road that Tom Kirby lived on - up past Rubber Avenue Extension. Anyway I have memories of us driving down this road, and coming to an
area where there were these big high tension wire towers (hope you know what I's referring to) Anyway did we come to these towers and see a large,
large object with lights just hovering over these towers,(and not making any sound) and did we stop then drive away and then look back to see this
object just slowly moving away. And did we drive like a bat out of hell to your house and tell your father that we just saw a UFO? And did your
brother Ed tell us about the Blue Book....and did we think that UFO were flying over our houses after this sighting. I surely hope so because that
night is imbedded in my memory and I really think I saw a UFO. When I told Brian about it - he told me that back in my day the Oxford/Middlebury area
had one of the largest UFO sightings in the Northeast. So please tell me, did this happen or is my mind playing tricks.
Anyway I hope it won't be another year before we catch up with each other. Will chat with you soon - peace out - Marti
Her friend's first reply- Oh yea. That happened. And we were stone cold sober! I remember it like it was yesterday. When we told my Dad he
said he hoped they'd land in the back yard so he could go on their space ship! He was as into it as we were! We were always seeing lights in the sky
doing odd things in those days. Changing direction, speed and even color. I remember one time at Marie Watkins' house we saw lights go darting across
the sky, come together in a group, then totally disappear! We told her brother, John and he called the Hartford radio station. They had hundreds of
people calling them that night! Hundreds! Eddie told me that pilots in the air force were not allowed to speak of anything out of the ordinary that
they saw while flying. So what's up with that? There has to have been UFO's out there and most likely the govt knows a whole heck of a lot they
aren't saying. Maybe so we aren't all scared #less. Or maybe because the aliens are all living among us. LOL! So after leaving CT I never saw
anything strange in the sky again. When I tell people this story they think I am C R A Z Y. But then they start to accept that it's true. There are
way too many stories out there of people that were taken,etc to discredit it!
93 degrees here today! YOO HOO! I love summer.
Now I demand to question her and jump on- hello. I am Brian, son of Marti. she is letting me type this part. hi. i study the ufo phenomena. is
it possible you can discribe for me exactly what you visually saw/ i dont think you are crazy at all and since i was a little boy i have wantedd to
ask you this question. all love to you and hugs.
She replies to me- Hey Brian. I remember you when you were just a kid! You guys visited us at my parent's house. The UFO sighting was just
like your Mom said. We were driving around, it's what we did in those days. I was sitting with my back to the passenger door (before seat belts)
talking away to your Mom when suddenly we just saw this very large, metalic hovering object with crisscross bars on the under belly and yes it was
saucer shaped with what could have been 'window's all around the sides. They were like set into the metal. There was no noise at all. It just was
there. Well, your Mom was behind the wheel and she stopped the car and we just watched. Nothing happened and she suddenly got scared I guess and
floored it! From my vantage point I watched it 'fly' off toward the horizon and when it got to be a speck of light in the sky it sort of sped up
really fast and was just gone. I'd say it was about 30' in diameter and maybe that far off the ground.
My reply- wow. thank you so much. you have no idea how bad ive wanted to hear a second view on this. you just made my entire year. thanks and
hugs. very exciting and your account has verified what my mom has told me my entire life, and has added even more details she hasno remembered to
tellme. so awesome. Hugs!
Her reply to me- OH! One more thing. There were lights. Not really lights but a glowing sort of thing around the perimeter of the underneath
portion of the object. Marti, do you remember that? We described it to my Dad like a burner on an electric stove when it starts to get hot. It wasn't
bright or anything but glowed sort of off and on slowly. And you are very welcome! it's cool you are so excited to hear about it!! Hugs right back
So there yah go. I've been hearing this story from my mother since I was old enough to understand speech. My mom is not a story teller. Her second
biggest story to tell is the time Stop-n-shop labeled a ham for 50 cents and they were forced to sell it for that much.
Hope you enjoyed this tale. I know I waited decades to hear the other half. Now you have read both sides. I have zero doubts that they saw
