Date:  May 1 1984
Location:  Glen Rose (Malvern), Arkansas
Time:   19:00
Summary:  This happened some years ago: I had taken my dog outside, it was dark, pm. I noticed what I thought was a star, the longer I looked, I thought this was a VERY Bright star, A star, but too close to the ground. I do not know how long I was outside looking at the light. I went into the house, where my two teenage daughter’s and a boy friend was, and told them to come look at what I had been watching. Again, I don’t know how long we were outside. All of a sudden the LIGHT started toward us, (going east) it took some time, and then I thought it was a helicopter. There was no sound, it was triangular in shape, and 2 or 3 different colored lights besides the white light in the center and dark in color. It went over a neighbor’s house. My daughters teenagers approximately 14 and 16 and the boyfriend 16, and myself saw this. I have on my left thigh, a hole, sorta pitted. I wrote an author of a book years ago and he seemed to think I had a encounter of some kind, and said I could go to a hypnotist, but he warned this could be traumatic.

Date:  May 18 1984
Location:  Mt. Vernon, Indiana
Time:  10:40 PM. 
Summary: Two MUFON Field Investigators and a third party were on a routine SKYWATCH patrol at their observation post on Bellefontaine Cemetery (hill) one mile north of Mt. Vernon. Suddenly a bright, silver white light was observed in the northeast. It was strobing at one time per second. There was no detectable aircraft lighting around the strobing light as required by the FAA and no sound detected. The light was approaching at a fairly high rate of speed. The primary witness saw it first and called out to the other two, “we have a bogey in the northeast” and they all began to watch the light through their binoculars. Even under magnification no FAA required lighting, nor any reflections on a body fuselage was detectable. The strobing light had come from the northeast at a pretty good clip and continued to move southwest, passing almost overhead but at high altitude to a point SW at about 45 degrees. Still no sound was heard. When the light reached that point in the heavens, to the amazement of all three witnesses,  it came to a sudden and complete stop and then an instantaneous flight reversal, with no turn radius, and briefly headed back northeast. Now exhibiting anomalistic motion during the final 5 minutes of the 12 minute total sequence, it stopped and reversed course once again, proceding southwest until out of sight

Date:  May 19 1984
Location:  Williams, Indiana
Time:  Midnight
Summary:   The witness said that he was outside behind his house working on equipment. It was a warm clear Saturday night. His wife was inside sleeping and two of his neighbors had just left after stopping to visit him. He was working by electric light and suddenly noticed everything around him became brightly lit. He looked up to see that the light source was a brilliant orange-colored light, low in the northwest. He said that it was totally silent and there was only the light, no craft could be seen. He went inside to call his two neighbors to come back and see the strange light, but did not wake his wife who is a sound sleeper. He then went back outside and the UFO was there as it was before. Approximately ten to fifteen minutes had passed since he first noticed the light and it then began to drift away to the northwest where he lost sight of it. Shortly, his neighbors arrived but they did not see the UFO and teased him about seeing things. Object reportedly 400-500 feet away.

Summary:  Triangle object no lights no sound. Triangle object no lights no sound. I just saw the ABC special and had goosebumps.Approx 1984-85 I was living in Longview,Texas..in town in a residential area. It was a clear night and I had went outside coming out of the garage into the driveway facing east. I looked up and saw a large Triangle shaped object fly directly overhead at a low altitude (500 -1000 Feet?}. It’s flight path was aprox south-west. There where no lights but I could clearly see the outline of the craft against the night sky. There was no engine noise at all but I could hear the craft push the through the air, almost like a glider. This was no glider..It was flying under power. I had only told two people this. Then tonight (2-24-05} when the ABC special was coming on I told my 9 year old daughter what happened. Then I saw on the special about the triangle crafts that made no sound..WOW. ((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that date of sighting is approximate. PD))
