The reporting witness was 16 years old and was doing his homework just after 9 p.m. on an October night in 1967 when light was first noticed.

“A light came through the window,” the witness stated.“I looked up and a grapefruit-sized object was casting a light into our living room. I knew it was an object not of our present Earth. It followed a path across the picture window casting a light and a ‘Doppler effect’ of heat.”

The child’s parents were in the room with him.

“When the light reached the corner of our house it cast a light in on my father. He said, ‘What was that?’ I said, ‘Dad, I just think I saw a flying saucer.’ About five minutes later my mother exclaimed, ‘I want to know what is going on around here?’ I repeated what I have just said above. No one moved. My parents went to bed at 10p.m. No one moved. At 11:30 p.m. Johnny Carson did his second joke, and my father said, ‘Well, we are going to bed.’ I said, ‘Wait a minute, I am scared. I will sleep on the floor.’ My father answered almost mechanically said, ‘Don’t worry, you will be alright, just go down the hall and sleep.’ I said, ‘I still don’t like it.’ I don’t sleep without a TV and light on.”

The witness does not feel as though he or his family members were abducted.

“I do not feel like I was contacted or abducted. It happened over 45 years ago. If my father and I don’t tell the story it will die with us. My Mother passed away in January. The object I have referred to above travelled outside of my line of sight.”

No images or video were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on March 18, 2016.
