Summary : CLOSE ENCOUNTER/CAUGHT ON VIDEO on march 29 1997 I lost over 3 hrs.while filming hale bop,(CAPTURED CRAFT,BEINGS ON VIDEO.)I THOUGHT I HAD BEEN GONE APPROX 30 MIN.BUT VIDEO IS OVER 3 HRS.

on the 29th.I went to a fcc tower approx.amile or less from my home to video the hale bop comet,although I didnt see the comet I did see a brilliant light,it was square (IT LOOKED LIKE A GIANT DOOR!)Istarted getting very cold,I remember smelling ether,i filmed a few stars,went home!(or so I thought!)when i arrived home my wife asked me -did you see that thing that flew over the house? I replied that I didnt see anything! Then she asked what took so long? I replied I was only gone 30 or 45 minutes max. then she said -baby youve been gone almost 4 hrs.I thought she was upset about me not seeing this thing that had flown over our home! so I told her that I WAS SORRY!,went to bed ;the next morning Iwent outside and started filming over the tape,filming the squirrels,my wife came out and told me I REALLY WAS GONE ALMOST 4 HRS.TOLD ME TO CHECK THAT TAPE! so we went in to look at the tape,she was right!I CAUGHT IT ON TAPE!THE TAPE BESIDES WHAT I FILMED OVER IS OVER 3 HRS.LONG!
