|On an evening in February,1967 at 12:15 am, a friend and I were walking back to our billets from across the base at Ft. Bliss on a Saturday.
We were passing by the crypto infomation center for the Strategic Air command which is located underground in a highly secured area. We looked up at the sky on a very clear night, when we noticed large cloud like puffs, that seemed to come from out of nowhere. Then we saw a UFO that looked to be the shape of a disk/saucer. It came out of the puffs and went directly over the crypto site and stopped abruptly.
The UFO was about 100-200 feet from us and about 100-200 feet above. It then shot a beam of light of blue, red,orange, and bright white in the shape of rectangles with spaces between each light which followed in sequence and travelled slowly down and looked to be penetrating the concrete and metal surface. Then the light came out in sequence at around a 45 degree angle rise up a to what seemed a fourth or fifth of the way up to the UFO and then disappear. It did this for about 5 or 6 minutes but I'm not sure.
The UFO then travelled back into the puffs and shot off like a rocket at an angle of 45-60 degrees and was gone. The puffs were gone also.
We felt very calm and different which I can not explain.
