Full Description & Details
Bob H. myself, and my Dad observed two flying saucers in Simi the year was 1958 maybe 1959, they slowly crossed the valley We were about 12 years old and were playing catch football.
Bob saw them first, they were flying in formation. Both came right over the white bluffs North of 1542 Patricia St. They were moving at what appeared to be slow, and floated crossed the valley, the lead ship was slightly lower that the second, and slightly ahead about half a ship or saucer length, when they had traveled about three quarters across the valley heading directly for Rockdyne, I ran in the house and drug my dad out to see them. He was pilot and had flown for United Airlines also an FAA flight examiner, who was now an Engineer for Rocketdyne at Santa Susana.
By the time I got him out, they were now several miles away, but you could still tell they were saucers, I ask what they were he, “just looked and said, I don’t know!,” I never knew him say he did not know!. as he loved airplanes, and would always offer the year. Type, Make, and model. of any airplane that flew by.
As a retired aerospace engineer, I have worked for Lockheed skunkworks, Rockwell and others, I have seen some odd stuff, but never anything like the pair of flying Saucers that day in Simi Valley, and still defying me a viable answer of what I saw, and where they came from, or went for that matter.
Using google earth I plotted out the logical point of travel, from the white Bluffs to Rocketdyne.
I estimate fourteen miles as the crow fly’s, from the bluffs to Rocketdyne in Santa Susana. Estimated viewing time four to five minutes. Probable ground speed approximately 200 mph. Nearest distance to object based on my location in relation to the path of travel, approximately one mile. Altitude 3000 ft. AGL.
In today’s world a good comparison would be a 747 landing at pattern speed, and altitude. That’s how the object looked in size distance and speed as well as emitting no sound emitted
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Not a change.
