Description & Details

had worked real hard that day for the state highway dept.
and I was tired, so I took a nap when I got home. This
was a clear summer day, and all the events occurred in
the daylight. My grandmother lived in the southwest part
of the city of Odessa. As I was taking a nap, she called
my wife. She said, have Stanley go out and look, because
there is a UFO heading your way. I lived west of town
out in the country. There weren't many houses out there
at that time. When I awoke, I sat and thought about it
a minute, and thought my grandmother is very serious.
She doesn't tease. I decided to get up and go outside
and look for the UFO. First, I looked toward town and
saw nothing, which would have been back toward the east.
Then I turned and looked toward the north and south and
saw nothing. When I turned and looked toward the west,
there it was. Above the radio tower, about 1 mile from
my house. My wife and I got very excited, because we knew
it was probably an alien ship. It made no sound. [And,
as the witness added later, there was no rotation of the
UFO.] About this time, my brother in law and big sister
who lived about 2 streets over, came flying around the
corner in their car. They were hollering out of their
window as they approached, saying "do you see it,
do you see it?". When they got out of their car,
of course all four of us were excited, and I don't remember
what we said at the moment. We had no camera and they
had no camera, and I ran to the neighbors house to borrow
a camera and they weren't home. Then as we watched it,
we were all amazed and I said, wait a minute, I think
that's a radio tower! So I went to my car, I turned the
radio on and started scanning all of the channels. Then
in our amazement, we came across a station, and my wife
said it was KBZB, to the best of her memory. But of course
you have to realize this was about 32 years ago. We were
really shocked when we heard the disc jockey saying that
they had a UFO above their radio tower causing static.
So we kept listening to his reports and watching the UFO,
and I decided to go inside and look up the phone number
of that radio station. I did get the disc jockey, and
I don't remember his name. I did ask him if his radio
tower was out on west university and he said, yes that's
our radio tower. I said, we're looking at the UFO that
you're talking about. I don't remember what else I said
at the moment, but in a little while, I hung up and went
back outside with everybody else. Already the UFO had
been over the tower about 20 to 25 minutes. My brother-in-law
and I started having the discussion of driving to the
UFO, which was about 1 mile from my house. So we tried
getting to the tower by going down different dirt roads
and couldn't reach it from that direction. So we drove
to the main highway, which is west University and found
a road which led to a little road which goes to the radio
tower. Whether or not the UFO would have interfered with
the electric system of the car, I do not know because
we killed the car and stopped at the beginning of the
little road that led to the UFO. We were probably about
a half mile, maybe a little farther, from the UFO. The
color of the UFO was a stainless steel. My brother-in-law
and I sat there and started having the discussion of whether
or not to drive up to the UFO, which we could have done.
We actually decided not to drive under the UFO, because
we thought we might get a flight we did not want. I don't
recall what we said during the time we sat there but gradually,
the UFO moved from the radio tower to the north, it made
a 90-degree turn and drifted off toward the west, out
of sight. We drove back to my house and they were no longer
reporting the UFO on the radio station. I called the radio
station again and got the same disc jockey and said, why
did you stop reporting about the UFO, and he said that
the government told them to shut it down or lose their
license. He said, I will tell you something else though.
Our electrician went out there to check on why we were
having static, and when he got back, he was so excited
and disturbed that we had to take him to the hospital
to get him a hypo to calm him down. He said there were
hyroglyphics on the bottom of the ufo. So I hung up after
that discussion and later on, I called him back one more
time and he said one of the t.v. stations had pictures
of a ufo above the street lights on West University at
night and the government confiscated their pictures and
told them to be quiet or lose their license. He said that
he didn't want to talk about it anymore, because he was
afraid he would get in trouble. This completes my version
the best I remember of this event, and it is the truth.
There were five witness, and I have thier names and occupations
on the original report."
sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or
this was a UFO. I would be willing to take truth serum
or a lie detector if it were needed. Besides, I am a Christian."
