I’d like to tell of a couple encounters with UFO’s that I’ve had.
My 1st encounter was in the summer of 1975. I was 17 living in West Virginia. I was in my living room reading sometime after dusk when I heard several
kids screaming out side. One was my younger cousin. When I went outside to see what was wrong, they pointed to a neighbor’s backyard. A dark gray
teardrop shaped object was floating about 5 feet off the ground, next to a tree. The object was about 6 feet from top to bottom, and about 4 feet in
diameter. I walked parallel to the street to get a better look. When I got about 20 feet from the object, it went around the tree and shot straight
up. It made no noise at all. Altogether, there were about 5 people that saw this. About 20 years later I asked my cousin if She remembered see
something in the neighbors back yard. She said “you mean that UFO?”
My next encounter was roughly a month later. My friend’s father owned a shop that was situated, kind of, on a mountain top (very small mountain).
Four of us were leaving the shop about 11:00 at night. Somewhere on this road my friend said, “what the #@%$ is that?” He was pointing to a very
bright point of light that was in front and slightly to our left. I couldn’t tell how far away it was, but it was incredibly bright. After a moment
it moved toward the right. At that time it moved behind a stand of trees that was at least ½ mile away. After a couple of minutes my friend stared
yelling “it’s right over top of us!” I was in the back seat of a V.W. bug, leaning way back trying to see what it was. My impression was that is
was maybe a couple hundred feet above us. All I could really see was a dark gray surface. I’m not sure if I remember the rest of that night, kind of
fuzzy, like waking up the next day and remembering you had a dream but not being able to remember the details of the dream. The next day I started
looking in the newspaper, thinking someone would report seeing a UFO. I remember thinking that we were on a lighted highway and that people were
standing around look up at the object. Just this past year I realized that the road leading to this shop is an unlighted 2-lane road. I also remember
the light around at that time was way brighter than I would expect the lighting on a highway to be.
I also had something unusual happen when I saw the cover of Whitly Strieber’s book, Communion. When I saw the painting of the “Alien” on the
cover, I had a sudden remembrance of what I felt was a dream I had when I was 12. In the dream, I woke up in the middle of the night and looked out my
bedroom window. There were 4 or 5 “beings” stooped over looking at something on the ground. One of them stood up and looked at me and then
beckoned for me to “come here.” That’s all I remember, but the “critters” I saw in that dream looked almost exactly like the painting on
I had never heard of Strieber’s book before this. My wife and I were in the book store and I just say it on the shelf. I picked it and had a sudden
memory of my dream. I told my wife “Those were the guys in my dream.” Later when I was telling my wife about the dream I had a sudden memory of
another dream I had about 2 years before that one. In that dream, I was home alone on an overcast day. I was running from room to room in our house,
looking out the windows of the house. I was watching a large gray disc shaped object circling our house. What I can remember, it was several hundred
feet above the house.
I have't really told much exept to my wife and son.
