OCTOBER 1969 UFO SIGHTING BY ENTIRE FAMILY

ON OCTOBER OF 1969, I WAS 9 YEARS OLD. THE OLDEST OF 5 SIBLINGS. I;M ONLY TELLING THIS NOW AT 52 YEARS OF AGE BECAUSE MY FATHER DID NOT ALLOW US TO TELL OF THIS EVENT. HE HAS SINCE PASSED AWAY AND IT'S TIME I TELL SOMEONE. MY FAMILY AND I WERE TAKING A WALK TO A NEAR BY PARK. THE SUN HAD BEGUN TO SET.

AS WE ARE WALKING I LOOKED UP INTO THE EVENING SKY AND SAW A VERY LARGE BRIGHT STAR. IT SEEMED TO BE GROWING LARGER AND LARGER BY THE MINUTE. I KEPT TUGGING AT MY FATHER'S PANT LEG FOR HIM TO LOOK UP. WHEN HE FINALLY DID...THE STAR WAS HOVERING SILENTLY ABOVE US. IT HAD CHANGED SHAPE. IT WAS NOW A DISK, BUT A SOLID COLOR...IT WAS AS IF YOU WERE LOOKING INTO A LIQUID MIRROR. SHADES OF SILVER, LIGHT BLUE, AND PURPLES.

IT REMAINED THERE FOR A FEW MOMENTS AS WE HUDDLED TOGETHER IN FEAR...BUT MY FATHER KEPT REASSURING US THAT IT WAS OK.

THE OBJECT DISAPEARED INSTANTLY AND LEFT A GREY CIRCULAR OR SPIRAL SHAPE IN THE SKY.
