|Summer of 1964, red-orange saucer-ovals sighted from Missoula, to Darby, Montana.
I was driving south on the highway from Victor, Montana to Hamilton, Montana. Sitting next to me was my girlfriend, and in the passenger seat was her mother.
Her mother said "look at the saucers!" The distance between the highway and the Bitterroot Mountains to the West was approximately a mile and a half. The three red-orange ovals, which were lit from within like japanese lanterns, were between us and the mountains. I would guess their distance at about one half mile from the higway we were traveling on. I would estimate their size to be 150 0r 200 feet in length. The trio paced us at seventy miles an hour.
Just North of Hamilton is a deep canyou into the Bitteroots. The trio turned as one aircraft and entered the canyon, displaying their thickened saucer shape.
The above incident is only one of several events seen by residents of Missoula and the bitterroot valley during the Summer of 1964. Check the Sunday supplement of the Missoulian, the local paper. It contained a report about a family that saw saucers landing nightly in the pastures around their ranchouse in Rattlesnake canyon North of Missoula.
((NUFORC Note: We have requested that the witness have his friend submit a report of her recollection of the event, as well. Date of event may be approximate. PD))
