While driving home from work, a huge saucer shaped craft descended from the night sky, and hovered over the tree tops, 50 feet from my car. The only sound, was a soft humming. Suddenly, from somewhere on the craft, a beam of light shot out and directly onto my car.

1972, June. I was working the second shift in the local hospital in Sharon Ct. My mother who lived in Sharon was babysitting for my 5 month old son. I left the hospital around 11:30, stopping at my mothers to pick my son up and her (she was coming to my home to spend the night). We left her house around 11:40pm enroute to my home in Millerton N.Y.. The night sky was very clear, staars in abundance. A beautiful summer night. The flashing lights of what we thought was an airplane caught our eye. It was at a very high altitude, almost appeared that it was another star except for the colored lights, (blue, red, green)..To our horror, it started to "fall" from the sky at a tremendous rate of speed...I stopped my car and with my hands over my ears ( didn't want to hear the noise when it impacted against the ground)..watched as it plummeted toward us. Then, right before our eyes, it stopped, just over the trees not 50 feet from our car. We were terrified, with my hands shaking I watched in shear fright as it hovered above the trees. It was a saucer shape, metallic gray in color, with a dome that had what appeared to be rows of windows. It was so close that both my mother and I could see inside. What we saw will forever remain in my our memories! They were not human! Four or five beings with a grayish skin tone, and huge black eyes looked out at us. Suddenly from somewhere on the craft a beam of brilliant, blue-white light, struck our car...this beam of light was so bright that it "hurt" our eyes, for about 15 seconds this light remained on my car and then suddenly it imploded back into the craft. Slowly the craft began to move directly over the car. The only sound it made was a very soft humming. I was absolutley terrified, my only thought at that time was to get my infant son home where we would be safe ? I took my foot from the brake and proceeded to drive. The craft remained at the same altitude and drifted just about 100 feet ahead of me. The road that I was on was a secondary road that joined with a major rt. I intersected rt. 22 and began my 10 min. drive from there to my home. The craft remained ahead of me at the same distance and altitude until I turned off 22 onto MaGhee Hill Rd., where I lived. When I arrived at my house my mother and I could still the hummi! ng from the craft as it continued going north, above rt. 22. The next day on the 12:00 news there was a brief report of " a UFO " sighting in the city of Albany N.Y. about 50 miles from Millerton. This sighting had been reported by two N.Y. state troopers ! It was seen about two hours after I had seen it. They described the craft exactly as I did, same lights, speed, color, and "it made a humming" noise. To get to Albany from Millerton one would drive north, on rt. 22. I have always believed that this craft seen in Albany was the same one that I had seen two hours earlier as I drove home. This was my first sighting of a UFO, but it has not been the only sighting I have had. Since that time I have had six or seven additional sightings. They have been different shapes, triangle, cigar..saucers. There is no doubt in my mind that we are not alone here on this planet and we have not been for many thousands of years. The technology behind the crafts I have seen, was and still is far to advanced for our world.
