NEW BEDFORD MASS. UFO 1981

IN THE FALL OF 1981 WHILE WALKING FROM A SUNNYBROOKS FARMS STORE IN NEW BEDFORD MASS. ME MY WIFE AND FRIEND HAD A CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH A U.F.O .WE WHERE WALKING WEST TO HER HOUSE WHICH IS EAST OF THE N.B. AIRPORT.TO THE SOUTHWEST OF THE AIRPORT I SAW A BLUE BALL ABOVE CHAMBERLANES MANU.A FACTORY THAT MADE BULLETTS AND BOMB SHELLS FOR THE GOVERMENT AT THAT TIME. THE PLANT IS CLOSED NOW. I TOLD THE GIRLS TO LOOK UP AND I SAID HEY THAT PLANE LOOKS LIKE A UFO THEY WHERE LIKE YHEA RIGHT AND THEY IGNORED IT I KEPT MY EYES ON IT THE WHOLE TIME WHEN IT START TO MOVE I TOLD THE GIRLS TO LOOK AND THEY THEY WHERE NOW IMPRESSED AND SCARED BECAUSE IT WAS JUST GLINDING IN THE THE NIGHT SKY GETTING BIGGER AND ADDING ON COLORS RED, GREEN, WHITE, YELLOW AND ORANGE. WHEN I FIRST SAW IT WAS THE SIZE OF DIME AT ARMS LENGHT WHEN IT WAS ADDING ON COLORS IT WAS THE SIZE OF MY FIST AT ARMS LENGHT. AT THIS POINT I TOLD THE GIRLS IT IS A UFO AND IT'S GOING TO TAKE US THE SECOND I SAID THAT IT STARTED ROTATE CLOCKWISE. IT LOOKED LIKE A MERRY GO ROUND IN THE NIGHTSKY,IN A MATTER OF SECONDS IT WAS ABOVE OUR HEADS THE GIRLS SCREAMED TOLD ME TO RUN I TOLD THEM I WAS'NT AFRAID. BUT I WAS AFRAID AND AMAZED I COULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT I WAS SEEING LIGHTS ABOVE ME A ROUND SPACESHIP THE SIZE OF A FOOTBALL FIELD ROTATING LIGHTS TOTALLY SILENT.THEN I LOOKED TO SEE IF ANNYBODY WAS AROUND IN THE NEGHBORHOOD THERE WAS NOBODY. AS I STARTED TO BACK AWAY FROM THE UFO ALL THE COLORD LIGHTS TURNED WHITE AND IT STARTED TO MOVE OR GLIDE SOUTHEAST STILL NO SOUND. ALL MOST TOUCHING THE ROOF TOP OF 3 FAMELY HOME. I'LL NEVER FORGET IT NEVER !!!! IF THERE IS ANYBODY OUT THERE FROM NEW BEDFORD,FAIRHAVEN, DARMOUTH, AND ACHUSNET THAT HAVE SEEN AT THAT TIME PLEASE REPORT HERE THANK YOU .....
