Location: Michigan, United States
the witness: "The disk like craft came down directly
over the church/rectory and hovered about 20 ft. above
it.... It was disk-like with a very wide band of windows
around the middle of the thing.... There were people/beings
(?) looking down at me.... Two of them then were standing
up and came up to the windows, and they just started down
at me and the car.... I could see right into their craft.
It was very brightly lit up inside."
Rotating with lights behind central band of windows; tall
blond people??/beings looking down at my car
saw a streak of light in the sky while turning south onto
Little Mack Ave. in St. Clair Shores, MI 48081 in 1978
or 1979 (I never could remember the year). I was traveling
from east to west as I turned onto Little Mack Ave. It
was a Friday. I thought that it was a reflection off the
wing of a plain or something, and remember it was just
dusk at the time and there was still a sunset to the west.
Just ahead, at Matin Rd., I saw it coming closer, so I
turned west onto Martin Rd. at the intersection (I could
never remember if I had to stop at the traffic light there
at all, but I know there is one at that intersection),
and then I turned directly left into a church parking
disk-like craft came down directly over the church/rectory
and hovered about 20 ft. above it. I just couldn't believe
it. It was silently rotating with bright lights coming
off the bottom ot it. It was disk-like with a very wide
band of windows around the middle of the thing. Thinking
back now, the wide band of windows must not have been
rotating with the rest of the craft. It was very early
spring time, and I had some young chilren in the back
set of the car. I sat parked and looking up at it right
straight out of my front windshield. There were people/beings
(?) looking down at me. It looked like some sort of open-spaced
mess hall inside with them sitting around squarish tables.
Two of them then were standing up and came up to the windows,
and they just stared down at me and the car. Others at
the tables then turned their heads as if to notice my
car. They had shoulder-length light hair. Their hair styles
reminded me of the old page-boy style from years ago.
They seemed to have on some sort of jump-suit. I remember
thinking that one of them must have been female. I knew
they could see me, and it felt really weird to me that
they could see me and knew I was there. I can't remember
if I'd turned my car engine off or if my car was still
runnig (I've always wondered about that). I could see
right into their craft. It was very brightly lit up inside."
don't remember seeing/hearing any other traffic lights/car
noises or anything. It just seemed totally dark out, and
there was no noise at all. I remember I had my hands on
the steering wheel. Then all of a sudden the craft went
right up about aprox. 100 ft. (maybe less), and it veered
off to the south-west slowly at first, then it went at
lightning speed till it was just a pin prick of light
in the sky."
thought that someone else must have seen the thing (no
other cars were around at all, no traffic nothing), and
I wanted to see where it went. So, I left the parking
lot by it's exit onto a side street, whick I took till
I got to 11 Mile Rd. But, by then it wasn't visable at
all. I turned left (east) onto 11 Mile Rd., and I considered
going to the police station there at Jefferson Ave., but
thought they'd think I was crazy. I noticed some traffic
then. So, I didn't stop at the station, but just turned
and contiuned on. I don't know why I just went home, and
I didn't think/talk about it at all that night, nor all
weekend. Also, I didn't phone or tell anyone about it
that night, either. The children in the back seat were
too young to remember what happened."
possible it may have taken place early in the spring of
1978. I could never remember the date/year at all, but
have tried to often. For some reason I can't, but my best
guess is that it was in 1979. I know (I'm positive) it
was a Friday near dusk when I saw this. I didn't feel
afraid, but there was some mild fear when the two figures
were at the window of their craft looking down at my car.
I think I felt this way because I had young children in
the back seat of my car with me."
was also in awe that this thing was hovering so close
by me over a church/rectory. I didn't have to streach
my neck up or back to see it out of my front car windshield
at all. It was just like watching something on screen
right out of my car windshield. I remember it was totally
black out as I watched this thing from the driver's seat
of my car. I've wondered about it being totally dark out
then, since I could see the sunset when I was turning
south onto Little Mack Ave. just a little bit before.
I also never took noticed of the time when I got home."
next Tuesday, on the car radio, I heard that there were
sightings of UFO's over northern MI. I've never talked
about this with anyone. I'm an educated person with advanced
degrees, and I want to remain totally anonymous and not
be contacted by anyone. I felt I had to tell MUFON about
what I saw and I hope that it may be of some help to you
and also others. The above phone # and email address are
not mine, but bogus I'm sorry to say. I had to put somethng
in those areas so I could submit this to you."
