1975 or it could have been 1974. Full summer. June or July about 1900 hours. Traveling east bound on the Kiln Delisle Road. A Part of the road known as the Kiln stretch. Crystal clear skies. Between sundown and dark. That part of the day when you can see very clearly.

The slight rise on the Kiln stretch. You have very straight and flat road for over 2 miles.

As soon as I we were on the Stretch I noticed a disk shaped flying hovering over some pine trees on the south side of the road. I asked my wife what in the hell that was. We were driving straight for it. It was totally clear view. My wife was very very concerned. I stopped the car between 1/4 and 1/2 miles from the disc. I told my wife would be back in a few minutes. She was very unhappy with my proposal.

I jogged down the highway to a spot where the saucer was just to my south about 200 to 250 feet.

The saucer or disc was perfectly clear. It was motionless 15 feet or so ever the pine tree forest. I stood in that spot for at least 5 minutes. The saucer was a dull silver in color. On the outside edge. Just over the edge was a series of colors of yellow, blue and red areas. Like windows but you can't see thru.

Only seeing the colors could you notice the shimmering of the saucer. No sound at all. This thing took off straight up like you can't imagine. I jerked my head up.

In about 1/10 of a second if was roughly 40,000 feet up and gone. It is usual for birds to be making chirping sounds. During this time the woods were silent. I have had nothing happen to me that some report.

We never reported to anyone.

Now I am a firm believer.
