Summary : My cousin & I were both 7 and we were behind our grandmother's when we noticed a silver, smooth, shimering disc about 20" wide and 10" tall . We thought it was somthing fun looking so ran towards it and it shot up in a zig zag fashion then disappeared. Later my mother found a circle of coffee can sized holes in the field. A family outside of town had a strange craft hover over their house near the same time.

My cosin and I were both 7. We were playing in a small field behind our Great grand mother's ,on the north edge of town. I don't remember exactly when but we both became aware of a silver metal object in the field. I remember thinking it was a metal pig hut because my older brother showed me one in the woods and told me that the pigs had gone feral and they would kill me if I went in the woods. I guess that was his attempt to protect me! Anyway, the object seemed to shimmer with heat waves and at some point we saw that it was a disc about twice as tall as a car and 3 times as long. I seem to remember that I could see under it like it was hovering close to the ground. We were not afraid at that time and decided to run up to it. we were about 50 feet away when it shot up on an angle to the right and appeared to be the size of a nickle , barely paused then shot up again on an angle to the left till at appeaed the size of a small pea then shot up to the right and disappeared. I !don't remember leaving the field but I remember running into my gramma's house and being very excited. My cousin moved to Washington state in the 70's. In 1983 he came to our grampa's funeral and I asked if he remembered it. He did. My mother did not believe us until we went on about it for several days. When she finally looked there was a series of coffee can sized holes near where the object was. A woman who lived 2 miles north of town told that at about that same time she and her kids (around my age) were watching TV at night when they heard sound like roof shingles slapping and the kids ran and looked out the windows. The kids claimed there was something hovering over the house with colored lights but the mother wouldn't look because she was afraid. I as female and my cousin is male. As far as I can nail it down, this was about 1966.
