This is my U.F.O. Story This happen to me when I was sixteen years old. I'm now 44. That was 28 years ago, In the Summer of 1972, in the Month Of August on the 28 day. I have only been driving for 3 month, I loved to go to my Brother House, It was so much different then my house at mom and dads. so that Day I went to spent the day and night with my brother and his wife and kids. To make you understand I was a mid life Baby, My Brother had kids older then I. My neice was 2 years older then I. so I enjoyed the friendship I had with my neice and nephew , they was close to my age. At around 10:30pm we went to bed, there was only one bed in the kids bedroom so we had to lay across the bed to fit, We had two very large windows went the length of the bed and they where very tall windows, this was very old farm house, and just up the road was a very large hill, it was called Coon Anderson Hill. While we where laying in bed we could not sleep it was August and very hot and no air con, we had the windows open and was looking out the windows at the very bright stars, it was in the country and no street light made it very easy to see the stars. time was now getting to be about 11:15pm. and I noticed a very small light in the sky, bluish in color, kind a like the stars where. I thought it was maybe a light from a slow moving plane it was going from the southeast to northwest. I look over to my neice and said do you see that Light over there up in the Sky, She said no, So I pointed it out to her and my nephew , my neice said it look like a light from a plane or something. All a sudden the light started to zig zag back in forth at a very fast pace, then it really got going, It appeared to us to move across the sky in a split second. at this time we knew it was not a airplane, they cannot do this, so as young kids we got really scared and ran into my brother bed room and told him about it , we all went outside onto the front porch and watch it for about another ten minutes or so. then it came to a stop and it was hard to see it because it blended in with the stars. it started to get larger and larger and it appeared to land or go behind the hill. we all jumped into my brother truck to go up to the hill to see if it did land or not, but we didn't make it, the truck just died and the light went out and would not restart, my Brother said the truck has done that before, he had a weak battery and drove a very old truck that had a generator, and if the battery got low the generator would not put out enough voltage and everything dies he said. but I'm not sure Now if it was that or maybe a magnetic force that did it.. It was very dark and could not see your hand in front of your face, the moon was not out. Then we notice lights coming from the south and went right over us, it was a helicopter, army one. we also heard jet engine we thought, but no planes in sight, my brother said we need to get out of there and as we was walking back to the house we saw the light it went straight up and went out of sight, the helicopter left to, the next morning my brother went to get his truck that we left and it started right up, guess that old weak battery just charge it self up... I have never shared this UFO story with any official, I was afraid they would think I was A nut case, but with all the other people see weird things I thought I would share this with you…
