I ONCE SAW THIS THING IN 1964, LIKE A JET VAPOR TRAIN
AND IT WOULD GO ACROSS THE SKY WITHOUT SPREADING OUT.
SO ALL OF US KIDS WHO SAW IT ON THE PLAYGROUND AT
ROSEBANK STARTED GETTING REAL EXCITED THINKING WE
WERE BEING VISITED BY OTHER PLANETS AND EVERYTHING.

ONCE IN AUSTIN, TEXAS, IN SUMMER OF LAST YEAR, I SAW
THIS BRIGHT STAR-LIKE THING IN THE SKY. IF I TOOK
IT TO THE AIR FORCE, THEY'D TELL ME IT WAS THE PLANET
VENUS. HOWEVER, IT WAS ABOUT TEN O'CLOCK AT NIGHT--
TOO LATE AT NIGHT FOR THE PLANET VENUS TO BE SEEN.
ALSO, THE OBJECT WAS TOO BRIGHT. IT WASN'T MOVING
AT ALL, SO IT COULDN'T HAVE BEEN A LIGHT FROM AN
AIRPLANE, HELICOPTER OR BLIMP. I TOOK A PICTURE OF IT
WHICH DIDN'T TURN OUT, SO WE HAVE NO PROOF. WHEN I
WENT OUTSIDE LATER THE THING WAS GONE.

ABOUT A YEAR AGO, I WAS LOOKING OUT THE DEN WINDOW AND I
SAW THIS STRANGE OBJECT THAT WAS OBLONG HOVERING VERY
LOW OVER TREES. IT WAS IN AUGUST. IT HAD VERY, VERY
BRIGHT ORANGE LIGHTS SHINING THROUGH ROWS AND ROWS OF
WINDOWS. SO, I DISMISSED IT FROM MY MIND AND I WAS
DETERMINED NOT TO TELL ABOUT IT BECAUSE THEY'D THINK
I WAS NUTS. SO, IN A FEW DAYS AT MY DAUGHTER'S BIRTHDAY
PARTY ONE OF THE LITTLE GUESTS CAME IN AND SAID, "GUESS
WHAT, MY SISTER AND I SAW THE OTHER DAY?" A FLYING SAUCER."
IT TURNED OUT IT WAS AT THE SAME LOCATION AND TIME AS
THE ONE I HAD SEEN.
