In late July,1965, my sister age 15 and myself age 18 were sitting on the front porch of our home. I was waiting for my boyfriend to stop by the house on his way home from work. To the north we saw 3 white lights about the size of a pencil lead. They were stopping and going and changeing places with each other. If you were to look straight up above your head and then tilt your head down about half way you could see them. They danced around as if playing with each other. They were spaced apart from 3 inches to several feet apart as they did this. Then they divided and were spaced far from each other in sort of a triangle shape but way too far apart to be connected together as if they were lights on an airplane or something. Then they all took off at the same time from a still position. and shot straight up. It was then that my sister and I saw a much larger object almost directly over head. Also to the north of town. This larger object was about the size of a half a ping pong ball. and was stationary. It also was white but also had a redish glow about it as well at times.

The three small white lights then all flew toward the larger object and disapeared when they appeared to get about 3/4 of the way to the large object and then it all disappeared.

That summer we saw 3 or 4 unexplained objects in the night sky. Sometimes 2 or 3 at a time. My mother was an advid star gazer and we knew what the sattalites at that time looked like and what stars looked like. We often saw sputnick pass over head as we called it. The objects we saw in late July were nothing like an airplane or a satalite of that time period. The objects we saw that night were the most spectacular sightings we both ever had. I listened to Coast to Coast on stream link today and heard that it doesnt matter when one saw what they saw they should still report it. It is now, over 40 years later and when I close my eyes I can still picture this event as if it were yesterday. And I still get that same creepy feeling of wonder and excitment as I did 40years ago.
