Location: Charlotte, NC
Shape: Disk
Duration:20 minutes
This disk with various colors of light 'oozing' around the bottom section was seen just above the trees at the corner Dotger Avenue and 7th Street (above 2420 E. 7th Street) sometime around 1975.

I was only a child when my mother call me from the kitchen with a certain urgency in her voice that was never heard before or ever again after the event. I suppose I was only six or seven (1974 or 1975) when her eerie cry had me running from the living room where the TV had been keeping me company. I joined her at the window and witnessed something less than 60 meters away.

“Do you see it?” she asked.

I did see it. I saw it. Beautiful! How flawless in form, size, and color for a vehicle. A big, rounded flying… car? The bottom section of the disk had a bright blue glow that was being replaced by a new color from left to right as it seemed to ooze into view. A new color followed it around (always counter-clockwise) very slowly as I heard my mother ask a new question.

“What is it?” “I think it is a…” Then I thought, ‘My mother is asking me what it is? You mean she doesn’t know? Was she testing me? The color red began to ooze in behind the last color and then just as slowly came another. Mesmerized, my mother and I watched this thing hover just above the trees and give us the lava lamp show of our lives. Before long we were saying the colors in unison as they came into view and waited a few seconds for the next color to appear. I remember wanting to be the first to guess the next color or say what it was as soon as I could see any hint at what the color would be as it slowly made it’s appearance.

“Blu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-e… gre-e-e-e-e-e-e-n…” “Hey Mom, can we go outside?" After several minutes my panic-stricken mother moved me to the dining room where I watched it from a bay window and she made phone calls to police, the airport, my dad, and then gave up from frustration at being laughed at or hung up on. I watched the flying saucer and for so long that I actually got bored of it and went back to the TV set only to return to the window during commercial breaks. Alas, it was out of view. What could have been the most remarkable encounter of the first kind, was over and done without even a single photo. The heavily used camera was out of film. I had one of the most extraordinary experiences ever and it never really sunk in until the day I told someone what I saw and they laughed at me. I would give everything I own if intelligent extra-terrestrial life was be COMMON KNOWLEDGE. Thank you.
