In the early summer or late Spring of 1972 when my oldest son was 5 1/2 and my youngest son was 15 months old we went to a friend's grandfather's house to go fishing in the canals of Avery's island in Louisiana we went fishing in the morning and approximately noon we decided to come back as it was getting hot with the children, they had children the exact same age.

Her grandfather had a house near were we were. Her and I went into the house and made a pot of coffee got some snacks and food for the children to eat and sat down at the table on the porch which was a screened in porch that was connected to the house without a wall they had taken down the wall between the kitchen and the screened in porch the table was in the screened in porch we were sitting and talking and I could see something in the back of her head and it just appeared.

I looked at it and she turned around to see what I was looking at, cause she'd notice that whatever I was looking changed my whole demeanor.

It went from my right to my left down to my right to my left again and I said “Bell do you see what I see. She says “yes I do”. It came to the right again but it kept getting closer and it came up over o ur car which was across the driveway, the way we had the car parked, there was a driveway and then the cars would park facing the swamps with the back to the driveway.

It hovered over our car about 10 feet above the car approximately 5 to 6 seconds and zoomed off Into the woods in the swamps.

It was very large I would say 3 times the size of a car and it was shaped like a saucer the side slanted down there was a half round dome on the top than the bottom slant matched the top slant. There was what looked like a band on the bottom with lights. The top set went right and the bottom set went left. It was metallic. the lights were white like a car headlights. It was silent, not even a whisper . The leaves didn’t even move when it flew away. I’ll never forget that as long as I live.

We grabbed our ours I said let's get outta here, and we ran out the door. Our husbands had been fishing in the little creek next to the house, they beat us to the car and we drove out of there. We were scared. I never talked about it again, because one- everybody would have told me that I was crazy. Two at that time if you said anything they would put you in the insanity house. My husband said he never saw it.

I'm starting to tell people now because I see a lot of stuff going on TV and people are finally coming out and saying things that they saw.
