September 5, 1966
Location: Columbus, Nebraska, United States
the witness: "He looked up and a round craft was
directly over him at around 100 ft. in the air. It was
not very large in size, completely circular, and had green
lights, red lights and some yellowish lights on the bottom.
There seemed to be some sort of lines in the bottom, like
spokes in a wheel look. It was making a low humming sound
that resonated. It was almost pitch dark so he couldn't
see the color of the craft."

am reporting what happened to my boyfriend at the time,
later my husband and father of my children. We had been
dating for about one year. I was 18 and he was 17. He
was coming out to my parents farm (2+ Mi. from town)to
see me at around 9 p.m. He was driving a small Bridgestone
motorcycle and was less than 1 mile out from town (where
he lived, and almost to the Burlington Northern RR tracks
when he sensed something above him.
looked up and a round craft was directly over him at around
100 ft. in the air. It was not very large in size, completely
circular, and had green lights, red lights and some yellowish
lights on the bottom. There seemed to be some sort of
lines in the bottom, like spokes in a wheel look. It was
making a low humming sound that resonated. It was almost
pitch dark, so he couldn't see the color of the craft.
immediately tried to accelerate the bike to get away from
it because he was absolutely terrified and realized that
he was staying in one place in the road, even though the
bike was still running and it seemed that the tires were
still moving. He had driven that road so many times throughout
his life and knew every bump in it. He realized later
that during this initial few seconds, that if he were
still driving fast like he had been before seeing the
craft, he would have already been past the RR tracks.
He remembered cranking the accelerater real hard and the
bike didn't speed up. Then, he doesn't remember anything
AT ALL until suddenly, he was back on his bike in almost
the same spot, with the bike moving, only he was going
real slow, like 25 mph, instead of 65 mph from before.
He proceeded to come to see me and never mentioned a thing
to me or anyone else.
my vantage point, I was waiting at the farm and watching
the clock, excited to see him and couldn't figure out
why he was late. He had called me right before he left
town and should have been to my place in 5 minutes. Instead,
he arrived in about 25-30 minutes later. I asked him what
took him so long and he acted really weird. I noticed
that he looked pale and was quiet all night. In fact,
I noticed a change in his personality from then on, but
kept it to myself.
about a month or so after that, when we were out on a
date, we talked about going and parking at a radio tower
near town where all our friends went (lover's lane kinda
spot). We had been there before. So we went there and
were sitting for a few minutes when he freaked our and
said he had to leave the spot, then proceeded to tell
me what had happened with the UFO. Before that, he had
made fun of me because I believed they existed. I know
this isn't my story to tell. I also know that the experience
impacted my life almost as much as his and I feel it is
important to tell you about it. I don't remember the date
or time, but gave a guess. I was and still am amazed at
how terrified he was and remained so for many years.
are no longer married and as far as I know, he refuses
to talk about it. I think he pushed it out of his conscious
mind. At the time, though, I told several friends and
family members and he talked about it a couple of times
to them, also."
