UFO Sighting Report


May, 1969


Bedington, West Virginia, United States


My sister and I were playing in our bedroom, we had taken out mattress to our bed and slanted it up on the boxspring so that we could slide down towards the back bedroom window. The blind the window was down about three inches from the window sill. When my sister did down she happened to our the bottom of blind and turned to me with this of our fear in her eyes. That's when I slide and saw what was so afraid .

Sighting Time: 

Between 8 and 9 pm



No. of Witnesses: 



45 minutez

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was oval shaped like that of a cigar yet wide almost like a half shaped disc. It had Windows the entire length of it and there were lights flashing in sequence, red, green and white. The craft itself was either a silver or grey but we couldn't see the actual color because it was dark outside and the flashing light distorted the color. It made no sound at anytime and was unrealistically fast.

Size of Object(s)

It was larger than our Fathers station wagon and if I'm not mistaken it was a Chrysler.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

We were at least 50 feet away from it and it was between 15 to 20 feet off the ground

Description of Area / Surroundings

Rural area, just a little country community and the only thing that I knew of being around was Dupont explosives plant.

Full Description & Details

As I gazed out the window I could hardly believe my eyes it was not a plane because just hovered and wasn't a helicopter because wasn't possible for any craft to hover that low or silent. It made no noise and was hovering under the power line that was connecting our house to the electric pole. We could see small beings moving around in it but due to the different colored lights that continued to blink we couldn't make out what they looked like. We laid for at least an hour and the reason I remember the time is because my parents were watching Lawrence Well on the TV downstairs and I heard the music coming up the stairs and my Mother had just yelled up the stairs that we had better be quiet while they tried to watch their show. Mary an I laid on the floor to scared to move and I even thought about screaming out for Dad but a thought came to my head that if we did they would harm our Father and then they would know that we were there. The craft hovered for at least 45 minutes and when it left it came out from under the wires slowly slowly raised up and took off within a blink of an eye. It made NO SOUND and it left nothing behind it, it was just gone. Mary and I immediately ran down the stairs screaming and crying and shaking the entire time telling our parents what we had seen. Dad thought we had fallen asleep and had a bad dream but Mom told him that it was impossible for two children to have the same dream, so Dad took the flashlight outside to check around and that's when he saw our neighbor and his Grandson. They too had seen it as they were outside looking for night crawlers when this craft suddenly appeared. They called the radio station and the nearest airport to see if maybe there was some type of testing was being done in the area but to no avail. The next morning the grass and gravel in the area in which it hovered looked as though there had been some type of fire. Our Father and the older man who had witnessed this craft went to see another neighbor of ours by the name of Mr Ailes. He worked for the military and they thought maybe he would have some answers or could possibly find out what we had witnessed. Stephen Ailes told them that it would be best if we would just forget we ever saw it and not to tell anyone.

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

No way.

Witness Background

Lab Tech, two years of college. I work for a medical lab

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I was a child and I was in A very strict Christian family and we didn't even talk about such things let alone believe things like that could actually exist.I believed in them afterwards I just didn't understand it and we didn't know anything about such things because the only things that were suppose to be in the stars and heaven were GOD and his Angels and they don't need a craft to fly around in.
