UFO Sighting Report


October, 5, 1975


Novato, California, United States


Light in sky seemed to respond to me, came out of sky and was a large rectangle of orange light coming at us at ground level from a different direction. Seemed to respond to my fear and thoughts, and left.

Date Reported:

Sighting Time: 

9:30 pm



No. of Witnesses: 



7 minutes?

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The Orange light was like none I had ever seen. Brighter than neon, intense, all one color, easy to see. It was a giant rectangle with a round shape of the light in the center, beating fast.

Size of Object(s)

4 to 6 hands across. 6 hands high. 10 to 11 feet high by 5 to 6 feet wide.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

At ground skimming distance it came as close as 12 feet. I don't know how high it was in the sky.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Perhaps, to an exploring alien, the special feature was the Faire itself, which attracted as many as 20,000 people a day. If energy can be measured, the " vibrations" were animated, positive and joyful. I described the surroundings above.

Full Description & Details

Blackpoint Forest, October 5th, 1975. The site of the 1975 northern Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Novato, California. The Faire had rained out, the sky was dark and overcast. Kenny and I were walking up a dirt road between hills on either side covered with madrone and oak trees. There were three others also walking towards their campsites.

I happened to look up above the hill to my right, when I saw square of pale yellow light in the sky, motionless, just sitting there. Curious, I said calmly, "Look at that." The next thing I recall is a large, rectangle of orange light coming rapidly towards us from up the road. It made no sound and there was a small circle of orange light in the center, pulsating in a fast beat. My heart started beating fast, and this scared me, so I thought towards the "vehicle", "Please don't come any closer, i can't stand it."** The UFO immediately went backwards into the sky at a tremendous speed, and when it looked very small, its light went out. I thought, "Anything's possible".

**A young woman had told me previously, that when her car was followed by lights above the ground, the lights retreated when there was "paranoia" in the car. So, recalling that, I thought i should try communicating directly with my thoughts as I was scared of my beating heart.

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


Witness Background

I am a retired teacher, performer, director, consultant, artisan, and writer. For many years I worked for the Living History Centre which once produced the original and first Renaissance Pleasure Faires in the nation. I trained in theatre and art with mentors.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Nothing much before. Given this endless universe, anything is possible. Visitors are visitors. Maybe i avoided being dissected, or an alien zoo. But I think these visitors were sensitive to my reactions, and maybe I was hypnotized and missed something of the experience. Anything's possibile. Has anyone else had an experience like mine? Did they get to meet aliens?

Other Comments

A funny thing: In the very next Enquirer market newspaper,

there was an article about "Orange sightings of UFOs over North America".

Also, a few nights later, a close friend told me that a friend of his who lived in the hills South of San Francisco, had seen "the same thing."
