Culver City, California A Huge Disk With Lights Around The Edge Date: Around August 1965 Time: Evening HBCC UFO Research Note: I spoke to the lady on the telephone who filed this report of the object seen over the drive in theatre in Culver City, California. She related an amazing detailed account of what was witnessed, not only by herself, but others saw the unusual object as well.

Message: Some time around August 1965 I was at a drive in theatre in Culver City, California. At intermission time a huge disk with lights around the edge suddenly appeared to hover above the screen. It was fairly low, but high enough that we had to bend our heads down to see it through our front windshield. My husband and were pointing and wondering when I looked around and saw others in cars nearby also looking and pointing. It stayed there for about 2 minutes and then banked off for about 2 or 3 seconds before just disappearing.

I've always wondered about it and tell the story once in a while. I recently told it to my 8 year old grandson. When he asked me what it was doing there, I said, "Good question, I've always wondered that." Then I added that I thought it might have beamed something into my stomach, as I was about 6 months pregnant at the time, and after his mother was born her skin "buzzed."

I am a retired school teacher. I decided to do a search for sightings in Culver City around this date to see if anyone else saw this and wrote about it. I found nothing but did find several stories about drive-in theatres. Thought I'd tell you. Have you ever heard of buzzing skin?
