eleven-year olds were playing when they heard a strange
metallic sound. They looked around and saw a cylinder-shaped
craft hovering very still a few feet above a tree. It
was 20-25 feet in length. There was writing on the belly
of the object, and a long silver tube which protruded
from bottom. This tube was "sniffing" the leaves
in the tree top. The witnesses watched the object for
3-4 minutes, too scared to move, before running home.
"This was done under the supervision of my father.
He says it's as close to his sighting as can be."

Description & Details:
is actually something my father saw when he was about
eleven years old. My father absolutely does not lie, and
this incident is what got him interested in the subject
of UFOs (which has been a life-long hobby).
and a friend were playing in an area where an empty alley
opened into a field. They were building a club house and
just enjoying the day. He says that they first began to
hear a strange metallic sound. (He experimented for half
an hour one evening until he could reproduce this sound
for me: tapping a key an inch from the bottom of a soda
can, filled 1/4 with water. Four quick taps, a short pause,
four more, etc. ) They looked around and saw a craft hovering
very still a few feet above a tree. It was twenty to twenty
five feet in length. Dull light silver in color. He thinks
it may have been slightly rounded on the front and back.
On the rear was either a blue light or a blue flame (he
says it was bright enough to cast a glow a foot or so
away from its source in daylight). It had "skids"
like a helicopter that were the same color and length
as the body. Aside from the sound, there were two features
which really stood out. One was the writing on the belly.
He can't recall their exact appearance but remebers distinctly
that they were not English. He said it reminded him of
chinese letters. The other feature was the long silver
tube which protruded from the bottom rear of the craft.
The tube was "sniffing" the leaves in the tree
top (that's the only way he can describe it). The craft
would hover over a tree, "sniff" the leaves
for a few seconds, then slowly move to the next tree.
Aside from the metallic rapping, there was no sound (they
were maybe 10 yards from the object, and it was only 40'
up at most. If there was a sound, they would have heard
it). They watched this for three or four minutes, too
scared to move. Then they ran home.
sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or
says it was definitely a vehicle and definitely had no
wings, no props, and no typical engine sounds. There were
no windows visible (he could see the left side and the
front at all times). If man-made, it was not typical.
on UFOs, before and after sighting:
exact quote: "I'd never thought about them until
that day. The next day, I started looking for books about
them and have been addicted since."
both been trying to find a similar report. He, since the
day it happened, and myself since he told me about it.
