Location: Great Bend, KS
Shape: Other
Duration:2 minutes
When we lived in Kansas in the early 1960s, we as small children made forts in the wheat. We would stomp the wheat down to make square rooms, round and rectangular shaped rooms and we would connect the room together with hall ways.

One night I looked out of the kitchen window and saw a White cube that glowed like a light bulb. It had a red light glowing on the inside of it.

The area was north of Great Bend, Kansas. There are or were quite a few radio towers there and one huge TV 2 tower.

The cube shaped thing flew around that radio tower like a moth flies around a light bulb of all things, only slower than a moth and it never hit the tower.

I ran to the bath room to get my dad but he said don't brother him. So I ran back to the kitchen yelling for my two brothers to come here.

When I got back to the window it was still flying around the tower. Just before my brothers got to the window it came across the field towards me in a blink of an eye it was hovering around 75 feet above the ground.

That is when my two brothers made it to the window and started saying what is that, what is that.

The thing hovered there but very slowly turned for 20 sec. or so. Than it spun so fast that it turned into a ball and was gone in a streak almost straight up but a little angle towards the n.w.

True true true story.

Also, I might add that the red light was fading on an off like the tower light was. I believe it was trying to communicate with it and that it was surprised when it finally noticed me or us. I also think that it was some type of probe or something.

The work you are all doing is good work. We saw what we saw so because of that I know we are not alone. Sure makes you wonder why that thing was flying around that radio tower? I don't think that making those forts in the wheat had or has anything to do with it but then again you never know like anything there are more questions than answers. This was a real deal and I know with all the liars and hoaxes you have to be careful. But this one is true and! I hope it will or it may not help you.

Sincerely; WM

PS It was the size of a small box truck.
