|The objects were high in the sky and brightly lit resembling light bulbs.
During the early 1950's we lived in Southern California. I was probably 7 or 8 years old at the time. The address where we lived was XXX Downing Street. A brand new housing project in Palm Beach. My father was a career Marine which is why we were in that part of the country.
I was in the back yard playing and my mother was hanging clothes on the line. Suddenly, we both noticed several bright lights high in the sky. As I recall it was late morning and since I was home at the time I can only assume it was summer. No school or I wouldn't have been there.
All we could see were the lights. No shapes were seen. They flew a bit eratic (up and down motion) and not in a straight line.
I remember asking my mother what they were and I remember her saying, "Oh, nothing to worry about". At that young age I had all the faith in the world in my parents and always took their word as exactly that. I went back to playing and that was all there was too it.
I have reviewed all your postings during the early 1950's and have seen nothing similar to what we witnessed. Even though it's been 50 years or so I can still see those lights and remember that day like it was yesterday even though it was, "nothing to worry about".
((NUFORC Note: Date is unknown. We have assigned an artificial date above, such that the report sorts to the early 1950's. PD))
