|Tear-drop shaped silent craft with sectional front end.
At or around at 9:30 EST. in late summer of 1967 our small group of kids (4) age 6 to 12 years of age were running around a point at the end of a lane that touched the edge of the union river before it spilled into a lake that bordered our neighborhood, witnessed a silent tear dropped shaped craft about 20 ft. in length and 10 to 12 ft. in diameter with no running lights but had a slight luminescence to it and had a sectional front window.
We were all scared stiff as it glided slowly past us about 30 ft. off the surface of the river with a solid line of fir trees in the background the whole incidence lasted approximately 5 minutes. Iíll never forget this, as it wasnít the only time we saw things in the night sky that year.
