The ufo phenomenon has been in my life, all of my life. I came up in a small city that is West of Chicago. In 1966, there was a significant flap
wave occurring, in the greater Northern Illinois and Michigan < especially) regions. I possess some local newsclips about such, from that time.
During that specific year, one night, in the middle of summer, when I was 6, my younger brother,5, and I, went walking away from home a few blocks, to
this park with swings, that was secluded though, by trees, just off the Rock River. So we are playing there awhile, with another kid I knew from
school. All of a sudden, it is the deep black of night, starry sky and all. I am just standing there, staring at my brother, who is sitting still as
a statue, staring dead ahead, as if in a state of suspended animation. Then we both snap-out-of-it, and walk home. As we are nearing there, a bunch
of people are milling about, outside. Someone points at us, and yells, there they are! My Mom comes running toward us crying, saying that the police
are out looking for us. This was bewildering, because I had no sense of being gone very long. A strange purple geometric mark appeared on my skin.
Then faded away.
In the years after that, strange ufo manifestations occurred. One night, sometime in the very late '60's-to-very early '70's, my Dad and I were
sitting in the living room watching TV, with the lights off (Except for the TV) and suddenly, the entire living room flooded with white light, but the
weather was --not-- inclement. Other family members ran outside, where the neighbor kids told them that a large white ball of light had descended
into over the areas of the houses' backyards. During that same time period, on another night, one of my youger brothers came running into the house,
to tell me that him and Mom, were watching a ufo darting about, above them. It looked more like a star, not a spaceship, but was making repeated
'impossible' controlled maneuvers and turns.
From 1978-to-1980, another major ufo flapwave was underway. I had this friend who lived across from a large sporting field, with bleecher benches,
which was nice and dark at night, when games were not occurring. Everynight, where it was convenient and conducive, me and her would gather up our
flashlights, binnoculars, a music boombox, and I would wear this watch that displayed glowing digital time. I brought what I called my 'little brown
book', which was a brown vynil covered blank paged notebook. And some pencils. My friend and I witnessed ufos, and I drew them. Also described
them in words, including weather conditions, exact time, etc. Here is some of what we saw.
Travelling from W. to E. is this formation of round objects, which seemed--more disc, than spere. If you were to hold, maybe a nickel, out, at arms
length, this is abouts----how big each one was. There were about maybe 7 of them. In a straight-line formation, not single-file, but side-by-side,
abreast. They were a uniform dim orange, like heated steel, that was cooling. With a fluttery effect around the peremiter of each one, sort of like
heat rising off of a hot desert floor. They were flying about as high and also as fast, as a somewhat low small private plane.
In the Nov. 1979 issue of (the long out of print) 'UFO Report', it bears the exciting headlines, 'Michigan Coast Guard Bases Buzzed By UFO Wave'.
I have a copy of the cover and article, which is about 8 (or more) pages long, and details the wave's activities from the Great Lakes all the way to
Canada, and all places in between and around.
Guys, all the above was only the beginnings of much more to come, I have a lot more to tell, but I'll just go ahead and post this for now.
