the late 60's early 70's, my two friends were driving
down Haror Dr. It was after 11 p.m. The boys looked to
their left (east) to see a flying saucer (metallic-appearing
craft approx. 30 ft in diameter) hovering over a house.
The boys stopped and watched as a bright blue beam shone
down into the house.

Description and Details
very good friends of mine, told me independently, of an
incident that happened over 30 years ago but never told
anyone (for obvious reasons). In the late 60's early 70's,
my two friends were driving down Haror Dr. (4-lane divided
road in a residential area of Venice). It was after 11
p.m. The boys looked to their left (east) to see a flying
saucer (metallic-appearing craft approx. 30 ft in diameter)
hovering over a house. The boys stopped and watched as
a bright blue beam shone down into the house. They stared
in amazement while it just hovered for another 10-15 seconds.
Then the beam went up into the craft as it shot off to
the west (to the Gulf of Mexico which is only a quarter
of a mile away) and disappeared in micro seconds. They
just drove off, didn't say a word and about a mile down
the road, stopped the car, looked at each other and asked,
"did you see anything weird back there?" "Yeah,
did you?" "Yeah"."
didn't learn about this story until a year ago, when I
saw one of the witnesses, Jim K., at a baseball game and
somehow my involvement with MUFON came up and he said,
"I saw one once; as a matter of fact, I was with
Alan D. Ask him if you don't believe me." "No,
Jim, I believe you. I've known you guys for over 40 years,
why didn't you tell someone?" "For fear of being
ridiculed or being considered a kook!" he replied.
I called Alan D. a few days later, and told him that I
saw Jim K. recently and he told me a very interesting
story about you guys from years ago. Alan questioned,
"You mean the UFO thing?" I said, "Yeah,
would you mind sharing the experience with me?" He
said, "Of course not...he commenced telling me (almost
verbatim) what happened that night in the beautiful city
of Venice, Fl."
K. retired police officer. Alan D. retired telephone communications.

are UFO's? Where do they come from? What do they want?
Why are they here?"
