After seeing your website featured in a television documentary tonight and visiting your site, I am giving my brief testimony in writing for the very first time since the event happened over 40 years ago.

July or Aug Evening in 1962-65/ Holden, MA / Light / 60 -120 seconds / White blinking light over Worcester, MA viewed from Holden, MA

I was going to bed in my home in Holden, Massachusetts during the summer, around July or August sometime between 1962-1965. My parents were already in bed and the lights in the house were out. I looked out our bathroom window and it was a very quiet summer evening with a clear night sky. As I looked east, I saw a blinking white light moving in the sky, like a small plane flying at a normal altitude. However, the light was blinking rapidly, unlike any small plane would have, and I remember that it was absolutely silent. It looked to be perhaps a mile or so away, and on a very still evening, I was surprised that there was no sound of an engine or plane or anything. It did not move erratically, but it also did not move as any other aircraft I had seen in that it seemed to have its own path and eventually disappeared in the direction it had come. Why this experience has remained in my mind all these years is that the next day, or perhaps even the day after that, I noticed in our newspaper, The Worcester Telegram, a very small article in one of the back pages, reporting that an object had been spotted, fitting the description and spotted around the same time period as I had witnessed what I did, and it was reported in the article as an "unidentified object" in the sky over "East Mountain Street" - which was the direction I was looking from our home on XX Brattle Street, Holden.
