Those who went through the childhood phase of building and launching model rockets will remember the excitement of putting the device together, role-playing the countdown in a fantasy NASA launch, and ultimately pressing the ignition button launching the rocket sky high only to see it fall to the ground moments later in a flurry of childhood excitement. This excitement, however, was replaced by terror according to one report coming out of MUFON telling of a birthday rocket launch that would end with a close encounter with a flying saucer. The witness submitting the report told that the event happened on his birthday, after he and his father went out to a field in rural Texas late at night with seven built rockets with glow-sticks cracked and shaken up and emitting various colors. After taping the glow-sticks to the rockets, they set up their launch pad quickly and began launching the rockets off one by one. The first flew up and gave off a spectacular show as it fell back to the Earth. The next to went into the night sky with similar success. It wasn't until the fourth object that the witnesses all stood in amazement.
