Ok I wish I had posted this on ATS sooner because this has been at the back of my mind nagging me for the last 2 years. I moved to the area of
Williamsburg, VA in 2009. Started working for a retail company in town and got into chit chats with some co workers. I was talking with one lady who
told me a story I couldn't sit still about.
My co-worker's mom claims that sometime in the mid 60's, where the current outlet mall sits today in Williamsburg, VA, something strange happened.
She remembers in the fields beside her house at the time, there being 2 large circles dented into the field. She remembered details like walking
barefoot around in the circles, thinking it was the coolest thing she'd ever seen. She says she remembers it being cold, but not cold enough where
you had to wear shoes. She was passionate about this story. No reason for her to lie. She even went on to add that the military came to
investigate, they closed down Richmond road (main road into town), the local train station, AND put up tarps along side the field so you couldn't see
the crop circles from the road.
Now this is very interesting. I did research and found that the first crop circle ever reported in the United States was 1964. So this before it
became popular for the kids to make them with a wood plank and rope. Basically we have a story that is one of a kind for it's time, and with other
collaboration from witnesses/residents from that time, I can piece together what's being covered up.
Next, I go to my local library to look at micro-film newspapers. I search EVERY single day from 1/1/60-12/31/69 and was delighted by what I found.
Only one article mentions a strange event happening. It talks about a UFO witnessed by a few people at the SAME intersection above the same fields
this crop circle appeared.
Secondly, if you look around online for the Project Blue Book documents, this UFO sighting is documented.
Lastly, I thought it would be interesting to look up this time frame in the weather almanac to see if the weather/temperature matched up with the
co-worker's mom who told the story about running around outside in her bare feet. Sure enough, throughout the week this event occurred the
temperature averaged out around 59 degrees with no snow or rain.
I've recently spoke to 2 other residents from the time who remember things going down in the city like alot of UFO gossip and such but nothing about
crop circles. Williamsburg/Lightfoot, VA was not the way it is now back in the mid 60's. Very small population, the area where this occurred was
probably close to 100 people, and if the military did block it off then there is a good chance the only people who ever saw these crop circles were
the families that lived next door to it.
I really needed to get this story out, because it's a one-of-a-kind story that has no life left unless we keep it breathing. I'm trying to raise
awareness in my community and probably looking like a lunatic while doing it but I feel this story has the promise of being proven true with a little
more evidence and testimonies.
Please star and flag this thread, people need to hear this story. Thank you.
