|Mass sighting in Honolulu during early '60's.
This was in Honolulu. Our whole street was outside watching and when we called the radio station, the DJ swore at us because so many people were reporting this and it was clogging the lines. The radio station was K-POI.
We watched the craft do a ballet for us. They were showing off. They went slowly chugging across the sky then one shot out to space in a blink of the eye. As in straight out!
We watched the other two wait patiently, just hanging there in front of us. Then suddenly, the third one reappeared from the right and slowly meandered back to his companions.
This display went on for some time.
My father was a Yale graduate and a first mate on a vessel in WW2. I asked him what he thought and a man who knew everything refused to commit on this.
The discs were tri colored with lights along the rim. I believe they were orange blue and yellow or red. I remember thinking the colors were rather unattractive and clashed a bit.
I was about 11 or thirteen. Very young but I do remember thinking they were so close we could count the lights.
I'm afraid I cant tell you an approximation of how big but they weren't small.
Hawaii is a huge military outpost. I think the Honolulu Advertiser had a small blurb the next day about venus reflecting swamp gas. etc..
