UFO 2nd Incident:

Around May 14 of 73 the three of us ((name #1 deleted)), ((name #2 deleted)), ((name #3 deleted)) and I were in military Radar school at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville Alabama. ((name deleted)) was living with his family in Madison just north of the base so I would go there often.

Around 8pm ((deleted)) said come outside as he saw something so I grabbed some binoculars and the camera and we climbed on the roof of the house. We could see over treetop level to the secret part of the base where was hovering just above the trees a saucer shaped object with spaced flashing red lights on the rim.

After about fifteen minutes two large jet aircraft (possibly C134) circled around and one would dive at the UFO continuously for several minutes until the UFO shot a white pencil beam of light like a lazer at the nose of the jet. The jet flew directly over us and I saw the jet numbers but figured I better forget and the jet left.

Five minutes later a jet fighter came in diving at the UFO. I noticed that the width of the saucer was about the length of the fighter about 60 feet. I didnít take any pictures this whole time for certain reasons but we could see clearly especially with the binoculars. Finally the UFO must of got the hint and settled down below the trees. The two jets circled for about 45 minutes then left.

During this whole time the Huntsville airport is usually busy but not one plane was heard until around 2am as we could see it from the top of the house. Since I have space Iíll mention the first incident.

Canít remember if it was the same night or the night before at ((name 1)) house we heard on the radio that the spacelab was launched and would fly over us about 8pm and that part of it was built at Redstone.

We stood outside and saw it going by from west to east like a moving star.

Then from the north another object intersected with the spacelab, followed it shortly then went south. We thought we donít have anything that can do that.

Later we heard on the radio that the meteor shielding was ripped off the skylab but that it happened during launch.
