Full Description & Details

In the year 1954 a young lady and myself were parked at a lakeside. The weather was clear. I saw a round object hovering over the far side of the lake. I asked the young lady if she saw anything on the other side of the lake. She responded that she did. In order NOT to influence each other I asker her NOT To tell me what she was seeing and we would compare later. Soon two smaller UFOs came over the horizon. They began an in and out maneuvering with the larger UFO.as if in some type of refueling process. One then disappeared over the horizon and the other went straight up and out of sight. The large UFO then went through a series of amazing maneuvers back and forth and up and down from standstill to unbelievable speeds to a complete stop! When the UFO was hovering the whirling port lights were red and when it moved changed to blue.

Then the large UFO appeared to be coming toward us until it was directly above the car. We estimated it to be the size of a football field. When directly over the car there was a low rumbling earthquake type of noise and the car seemed to be shaking ( Not sure but I do know I was shaking.) The insane thought went through my mind, "What if they abduct us??? After several minutes the UFO went rapidly straight up until it disappeared into space.

I could not talk or drive for several minutes due to the shock of what had unbelievably just transpired. The three UFOs were observed flying low over a nearby lake by several retired people having an outdoor patio dinner get together.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

I don't believe it can be anything else than an intelligence force directed "ship".

Witness Background

I am a Korean combat war veteran. I built a small resort after honorable discharge which my wife and I operated. We sold the resort and at the age of 28 went to college and graduated with most highest honors. I then was ordained and was in the ministry for 18 years. I also was a college instructor, Vice president of a manufacturing company, Assistant Display Director for Dillard Dept. Stores, plus one of top Realtors in US.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Before sighting thought it might be mass hysteria. I had read very little about UFOs with most of it negative - but many local people, including one whole town, had reported sightings.. Also two local sheriffs saw one land and drove to the the landing spot and saw round burnt area.
