UFO Sighting Report


November, 1969


Bel Aire, Maryland,


I stopped my car to observe a strange light in the night sky that seemed out of place. This star-like light cast a an arcing blueish green light down to the ground, almost in the shape of a banana. It made no noise, it got larger then smaller, then shot across the horizon at an umbelievable speed, only to stop suddenly, then it began to do its thing again.

Sighting Time: 




No. of Witnesses: 



7-10 minutes

Size of Object(s)

At its largest it wa several times larger and brighter than the stars, at its smallest it was the same size and appearance as the stars

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

It seemed close. how close, I can't say. But when it was small it appeared to be very far away

Description of Area / Surroundings

Rural (of course) A desolate country road . Aberdeen proving grounds was located several miles away- I have always wondered about the significance of this

Full Description & Details

It was in the fall of 1969-70. I was driving home to Baltimore from Rocks State Park, Maryland and was only a few miles from where I'd left at about 9pm or so when I came to an intersection to make a right turn. I looked left down this country road for approaching headlights when something in the night sky caught my attention. It was a very bright star that seemed to be getting larger. I stopped my car, put it in park and got out with my argus 35mm camera. I crossed the road to a locust fence post that I would need to use to stabilize my camera since i didn't have a tripod. I stood there for many minutes watching this star-like light get larger and larger then get smaller and smaller. It got so small that it appeared to by like any other star. Then it would get larger again. and. it seemed to emit a glowing blueish-green banana shaped light that arced out to the west towards the ground. I attempted to take several pictures just hoping that I could hold the camera still enough with the shutter opened to capture some image ( it later proved to be a lost cause as there was no image on the film).It cycled large and small several times and then the last time it got small, it shot eastward across the entire horizon in less than 2 seconds. It was at full accelleration from the start and stopped as suddenly as it started. At its new location it began this getting larger and smaller thing all over again. While my family believes that I saw something, they cannot accept that I saw what I am describing. I stopped telling of my experience -except for this

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

Not no, but hell no! This was something that shot entirely across the horizon in the blink of an eye. Point your finger a a star in the night sky that is off to your right, then in one quick motion sweep your arm over to the left horizon and point to a position. thats how fast it streaked across the sky
