Reported: 6/27/2001 13:16
Posted: 8/24/2010
Location: Charlestown, RI
Shape: Disk
Duration:10 MINUTES MAX.
BOTH TIEMS OCCUR IN SPRING SUMMER MONTHS.

IN 1980 MY FAMILY AND I WAS TRAVELING DOWN ROUTE 1 FROM CHARLESTOWN TO WESTERLY, RIGHT NEAR THE AIRPORT, HOVERING VERY LOW JUST OVER THE TREES,CLOSER TO THE WATER WERE TWO OBJECTS. AT FIRST MY FATHER SAID THEY ARE JUST PLANES. AS ME AND MY BROTHER SCREAMED, MY FATHER LOOKED UP AND REALIZED THEY WERE NOT. OUT OF SHOCK, HE PULLED THE CAR OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. THEY LINGERED, AND THE NEXT THING WE KNEW THEY WERE GONE.

THEY WERE SILVER DISCS ALMOST,LIKE ALUMINUM FOIL COLOR, AND LONG FLAT DISC OVAL SHAPED. tHINKING BACK, THEY SEEMED VERY LARGE AS A CHILD, AND IT WAS AT SUNSET. THEY ALMOST LOOKED AS IF THEY WERE LIT UP FROM THE INSIDE, FOR WE COULD CLEARLY SEE THEM AS IT WAS GETTTING DARK. tHEY WERE PROBABLY ABOUT 200 OR 300 FEET ABOVE THE GROUND, VERY CLOSE TO THE AIRPORT. THEY CAME FROM BEHIND US, WHICH WAS FROM NEWPORT DIRECTION TOWARD WESTERLY. EVER SINCE THEN WHEN I VISIT MY PARENTS, I SIT OUT ON THE DECK AT NIGHT, AND USE A TELESCOPE AND LOOK TOWARDS NEWPORT. I SWEAR I HAVE SEEN THEM, BUT DO NOT TELL PEOPLE. PRESENTLY I ALWAYS SEE 3, FLYING VERY CLOSE TOGETHER, BOBBING UP AND DOWN, REAL HIGH, AND FAR AWAY, MY GUESS VERY CLOSE TO NEWPORT OR BLOCK ISLAND, IT SEEMS THEY ARE ABOVE THE OCEAN AT LEAST 2000 FEET. I QUESTION IF THEY CAN SEE ME, BECAUSE, AS SOON AS LOOK IN THAT DIRECTION, THEY SPLIT APART, THEN MOMENTS LATER THE 3 SAUCERS ARE CLOSE TOGETHER AGAIN. I TRULY QUESTION IF SOMETHING IS GOING ON AT THE NAVY BASE IN NEWPORT RHODE ISLAND, AND IN GROTON, CONNECTICUT. ISN'T IT A COINCIDENCE, THAT BOTH NAVAL BASES ARE CLOSE BY AND SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD SIGHTINGS.ALSO, WHEN I LOOK AT THEM FROM A DISTANCE, THEY SEEM TO BE LIT UP,SAME SHAPE, BUT L IT LIKE LIGHT BULBS BOBBING UP AND DOWN.
