Full Description & Details
It was August 2nd 1957 about three am. The reason I know this because my brother Al, my cousin Floyd
and I, were celebrating my 18th birthday. We were planning on spending a week by fishing. Since I lived in Montana, we had been planning this for almost a year.
We spent about four hours just talking and once enjoying each others company. It it must have been around midnite when we finally decided to get some sleep, because, we planned ob fishing all day.
I was sleeping soundly when I felt someone shaking my shoulder and whispering my name. It was my brother,Al. " Bob" " Bob" he kept repeating. " ya gotta come and see this" I had never heard my brother this excited. He was usually pretty calm and didn't talk a lot.. I thought it must be something pretty important. I had no idea..
Across the bay maybe thirty yards. was an object hovering (floating) about five feet above the ground.
It was about yards across and a fuzzy shiny green. It seemed to wobble ( maybe not the right word) slowly from side to side. It was like seeing through a cheese cloth.
I wanted a closer look so I crawled to the truck to. get my binoculars. When I opened the truck door, The dome light came on ( I forgot about it) and almost instantly the object dimmed. I felt ,rather than heard,something happen. Again, I'm at a loss for words.
The object slowly stated to float toward us. My brother and cousin ran toward the truck and joined me underneath
It slowly drifted toward us and as it came closer. arms began to tingle and I felt my hair stand on end and begin to tingle.. I felt nauseous and wanted to throw up. unfortunate, I didn't
We watched the object as is slowly drifted North.
Suddenly, it disappeared. The three of us hap haphazardly threw our camping gear in the back of the truck , hitched the boat up as quickly as we could and raced for home We, all three did not speak much on the way back, but we did agree not to tell anyone, because anyone claiming to have seen ufo' were crazy and we didn't want that for anyone.
After that, My brother,Al, my cousin Floyd drifted apart and were never that close.
My brother joined the Navy and served in Veit Nam. Floyd moved to Alaska, worked on some drilling rigs and was in an aout accident that left him a paraplegic and later committed suicide. My brother was killed in an auto accident four days after coming home from Viet Nam.
The reason I report this because I am the only survivor 75 years old and really don't give a damn what people call me. I only know what I saw
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I read about sighting over the mountains of Washington, mostly Ken Arnold and I thought he was a crackpot. But no longer did I think that.
I am now a believer mainly because I don't think we are alone. if were are what a waste of space
