|We saw dark disc shaped objects emerge from the bottom of a "ligher than the evening sky" oblong light, fly around and reenter.
In 1966 my husband and I,and our new baby girl moved to Cambridge,Oh where he had been transferred to open a new retail store. My family lived in Crooksville, OH, approximately 40 miles, We visited my family about three, or more, times a week. Mostly in the evenings, after he got off work. We were traveling East on State Route 40 when one of us, (I can't remember who saw it first.) noticed the object in the sky, to the right. It looked as if it was some distance away. It was approximately 5:30 or 6:00 PM, and still light outside but there was a lighter oblong shape in the sky. I've always said it looked like an "opening" in the sky.
At the bottom end of it small (looked small to us) black frisbee shaped object would come out, and fly around close to the area it seemed to emerge from and fly back in. When it went back in it would disappear from view. I think there may have been three or four that would be visible at the same time, and they would disappear into the end of the oblong lite and come back. Maybe the same ones; maybe not. We continued to watch it, and made a turn back into Cambridge, To be honest I don't know when we lost view. I was surprised that no one else said anything about it, as there was a lot of traffic on the highway that night.
We decided to drive back into Cambridge hoping to keep the objects in sight. Upon entering the city saw to the left of us a large blimp like object, black or dark gray, which seemed rather close to the ground, seemingly not far above tree level. Didn't look like it was moving. On the side was a red, white and blue insignia. Keep thinking it looked like an American flag, but can't remember for sure. It seemed such an unusual object to see at that time, and I wondered for what reason was it there.
There had been a couple of incidents, but no other witnesses, so I don't know if you would be interested in them or not.
