I grew up on a 40 acre parcel of land with three small hills.and saw a UFO come up out of one of them.

Iíve never reported this incident to any authority. Also I couldnít get the date I waned to enter. The closest I can come up with is late September 1968. I was in the early fall of the year. My mother was setting the table while dinner cooked in the oven. The sun was just about to set when she remembered there was a load of laundry on the line to be brought in. She handed me a basket and sent me out to get them. I was about a Jr in High School at the time. The clothes line was on the west side of the hill our home was built on. I remember squinting and shading my eyes as the sun was so bright going down. The sky was decked out in oranges and yellows as the sun set. I put the basket on the ground and started taking the clothes off the line with a shake and a fold of each one. Suddenly the strength of the rays from the sun became less and I was glad to be rid of most of the blinding light as the sun went down. I glanced up and was shocked to see a small triangular shaped UFO coming up out of the hill between ours and the Jr High. Was it coming up from the West side of the hill or the middle of the hill, I couldnít tell? It looked like a mirror but I couldnít see any reflection in it. There were no lights or other items on it. It continued to rise up blocking more and more of the setting sun as it rose. I glanced to the right of the hill and could see that cars were still driving up and down Main Street and wondered why people werenít stopping. It seemed to me that the object was very heavy as it continued to rise so slowly. I eventually saw the bottom of the triangle and the object appeared to be about 2/3 the size of the entire hill. After the object was in full sight it rose slowly for another few seconds and completely blocked the suns rays from my eyes. I could still see rays shooting out from each edge of the triangle which had become quite large by then. Suddenly it zoomed straight backwards toward the West and the setting sun. Then in a flash the rays of the sun were back in my face and the triangle was completely gone. I ran to the house where my family was seated around the table to ask if they saw it. The window shade had been pulled down to block the blinding light of the setting sun. I had been the only one to see it. I waited a few days wondering if we would hear reports from anyone else but nothing. The only thing I have been able to come up with is that I saw another dimension of time. The date and time are estimated. If you go to Google earth at the Jr High youíll see the 3 small hills to the East on our property. The UFO rose from the one closest to Main St.
