Location: James Island (Charleston), SC
Shape: Disk
Duration:2 to 3 hours
In 1975 I lived on James Island, S.C. I was about 8 or almost 9 months pregnant.

It ws almost dark and I headed home which was swampy and more isolated then on Fort Johnson Rd. James Island, S.C.

This incident was in 1975. I saw something hovering over the swamp, it was tremendous and had bight lights all over and around the top of a hugh disc, rotating around and around.

I don't remembe a lot after that but I think I stopped the car and got out to go and look at the object. I must have been there about 2 or 3 hours. I think the object was glass or opaque in color and I remember that I was not afraid as many people say they are. I don't remember a lot more and then I was back in my car and it was really dark about 6 or 7pm. I had lost about two or three hours.

I did not think much of it at that time and went home. I did not feel drained, tired confused or anything. I did not feel threatened either.

We had our daughter and called her laughingly our little alien child.

I was alone so there were no witnesses that I know of concerning this object. I think the object had an ability of letting us see it and then some sort of way of not being seen. This was the only time I ever saw this thing.

Thirty years later we took some photos of the little house we owned out on the island and walmart developed them. A disc like object was seen in the left corner of the house. I questioned Walmart and they said it was not any of their equipment, and they asked if my car window was down, and yes it was. I still have the photograph.

I am a retired nurse and also have a background in sociology.

This was a strange event and I rarely talk about it, and I do not laugh at those saying they have had encounters. ((name deleted))
