Summer of 68 around 11pm.The moons glow so bright and the stars filled the night sky.

My family and I lived on a farm. With many live stock and cattle. We'd been cleaning the cattle yard and pens.Raking and burning pinestraw and debree. It was getting really late ...

my dad knew it was past my brothers and my bedtime. But, chores had to be done.

He said shouldn't take much longer.We had started late and was late getting through.

When something so strange in the sky captured our eye. It shifted to side then up and down. As it got closer almost touching the tree tops. And the object as big ...

then a roof top to be. It was spining circular motion. Bright round lights that ...

seemed to be all around its ship.Beautiful sparkling gold ufo. It was like nothing on this earth. I had a calm feeling come over me. It slowly aired down above the fire. The cows and horses standing near by and my mother, father and brother ... were like frozen in time.

Nothing moved,nor made a sound.I looked on as the round door underneath this object.

Begin to open sliding over. It reached the fires heat and the door closed shut.

Lifting back up and over again.And back the direction it came.

My father said OMG Lord No ... kids we never saw that thing! Right mom? mom agreed with daddy.My dad looked at his wristwatch ... time had stopped for 25 mins. We went in the house and a good hour and 1.2 had gone by.

A few weeks later ... 2 strange men in business suits came to visit our house.

Dad said never mind what they wanted. Although daddy didn't know but,momma let my brother and I call the radio station that night and report the UFO.

I swear with all the life in me this story is REAL and as God as my witness.

Came from something other then earth. But,where?
