10 PM August 1967 sphere observed by multiple witnesses moving along ridgleline 1/2 mile distance 500 Lights On Object0: Yes

Summer 1967 family observed a large (size of the full moon) bright round object moving very slowly along the north-to-south ridgeline of hills ½ mile from our house. Object did not change elevation…just cruised slowly along the crestline. Intermittent red and blue flashes of light. Sighting lasted 15 minutes and object just disappeared.

2 weeks later…8:30 pm past sunset but still light outside my mom walked with me next door to Gram’s house where I slept …Mom said goodnight to Gram while I walked into my bedroom…I had walked 3 steps into bedroom when out the window appeared rotating flashes of white-red-blue-green light..initially thought it was the rotating lights of a piece of road equipment next door at the county road crew shop, but became alarmed when the colors started rotating far too fast and multicolored for any piece of road equipment I had ever seen. I stepped back one large step to reach the door handle of the closed bedroom door (which I had not closed). Gram was on the other side of the door yelling my name..we could not open the door even though we tried hard.

The next morning I “awoke” late at 8:30 AM to hear my Mom talking to Gram in the kitchen…I was standing fully dressed in exactly the...3 steps into the room position that I had been in the night before. I noted that the bed was fully made-up and unrumpled. Mom asked if I was ok and if I remembered what happened last night. I said “yes”. Later she said that as she was walking back home she was alarmed to see the large round object hovering over the part of house I was in and a voice in her head told her “just go home and go to bed” she protested and the voice again gave the same reply. She said she felt compelled to go home and go straight to bed.

When I told the story to a relative many years later – 1993- the relative promptly reported my “descent into delusions” to my Mom…..who thankfully confirmed the story to the relative stating that she regretted being unable to do anything about it.

I had my 14th birthday between the initial sighting and the “bedroom events”
