UFO Spotted on Mt. Greylock in 1960's. Saucer and some kind of a seperate long white light.

I just wanted to share a story with you that happened in the 1960s when my in-laws were "parking" with another couple on Mt. Greylock in Adams, Ma. While parking in an area by the top of the mountain they heard what sounded like some kind of machine running. My father-in-law and his friend took a short path to the top to investigate. What they saw was a UFO that was surrounded by people. The people spotted them and gave chase. The two men ran back to the car to find the women crying. The car acted like it does in the movies, it kept stalling down the mountain. While on their way down, the men asked why the women were so terrified and they had said they saw a white light come up to the front windshield of the car. They did not understand what this was because the front of the car was parked up against a wall with a drop off on the other side. They did make it to the bottom and noticed the clouds above the mountain were illuminated pink. They never reported this because they said they thought nobody would believe them.

Not too long after, My Mother-in-law was at a friends house when this same (long) white light appeared outside the bedroom window on the second floor. There was a garage next to the house with a small alleyway between where she saw the light.

One night, around the same time, my in-laws were parked at Onota Lake parking lot in Pittsfield. They were watching another couple parked in the lot who appeared to be arguing (The other couple had their dome light on) when all of a sudden they felt like they were hit from behind, The only thing was is they were backed up against the woods. And just as sudden there was no longer that other car in the lot, but they said they never saw it leave. (Maybe missing time?) They both said they felt like they were knocked out. They inspected their car but there was no damage to it.

My in-laws are now divorced but will tell exactly the same story. They are not the type to lie and my mother-in-law still does not like to talk about it.
