**** Just Found This Website***** Thats Why I Am Posting my Story ********

In 1965 , I was a over the road truck driver, for a major trucking company. I and another company driver, that was driving another unit, were headed north on route 100 . We were about (8) miles from the small city of Pulaski, Va. This was about 3:00 AM...

This route 100 was a (2) lane highway,with surrounding montains. There were many "hard pulls" on these mountains, for diesel trucks of this time period. (170 horse power).

This particular morning (3:00 AM) that I and the other company driver witnessed this sighting, the temperature was in the (70s), and the sky was clear as a bell . You could see the many stars in the heavens.

When I witnessed this sighting, I was pulling a mountain, at approx.(20 mph). The first thing I noticed was the mountains on my left, was "lit up" like someone had turned on a giant spotlight! I then saw what I assumed was meteors coming down from the sky. These were displaying a white hot light,and had like contrails behind them. As they came down to where I could see them better, I changed my mind from meteors, to maybe a large aircraft had broken up in the sky,and was crashing .

On the mountain that I was pulling up. I could see the top of the mountain,and I could see the valley below. When the objects that I seen, I assumed they was going to crash into the earth. And I would have been a witness to a major airplane crash! But to my amazement, the objects just pulled up ,and went thru this valley like a speeding bullet. They traveled the entire length of the valley, and then "shot" straight up in the sky! Also, when these objects was at my direct left, they gave off a large amount of white light, and leaving white smoke with sparks contrails. I could see just like it was high noon daylight! I could even see the green leaves on the trees .

When it was all over. The other company driver that was ahead of me had pulled over at the top of the mountain, at a wide spot. When I came to stop behind his unit, he came "running"to my truck, and with astonished look on his face said, What in the H**L was that ? I then asked him what he had seen. He told me the exactly what I had seen ! What was it? Till this day (2005) I do not know ! But its one thing for certain. I and the other company driver had just witnessed something very strange .
