Sighting Report
Occurred : 6/15/1965 21:00 (Entered as : 1965 21:00)
Reported: 10/15/2002 5:28:58 PM 17:28
Posted: 3/4/2003
Location: Medford, MA
Shape: Oval
Duration:5 Minutes
At the Medford Drive in early or mid 60's. Slow moving flying object infront of screen for about 5 minutes.

While watching a movie at the Medford Drive Inn Theatre a flying object with lights came across the screen from the upright hand corner down very slowly at an angle and then hovered for a while. I was a child, around 3-5 years old. I remember everyone got out of their cars to see it. I think this is what made it stick in my memory, the mass confusion, the many "what is it". It only covered up 30% of the veiwing screen as I recall, though I don't know how big that screen was. There where lights but they weren't brilliant or blinding. My mother was around 35 at the time and recalls it as I do. She listened the whole next day for a radio report on it but not a word was mentioned. My farther alternates between dening he saw it and saying it was a helocopter. I was surprised there wasn't a report posted already for this but then again I've only talked to 3 people about this myself.

((NUFORC Note: We have requested of the witness that he attempt to establish the date, or at least the month, of the event. There were many UFO sightings in New England during the summer of 1965. PD))

Hi Peter,
I was very young so I don't know what month, and only now that it wasn't winter. I don't remember what the movie was, only everyone getting out of there car to see this thing blocking the screen and seeing it myself. I'll ask my mother again if she can recall what the film was and try to do some research here to reconstruct the time and date. I also ask her if she'll file a report and try to find out what other siblings where in the car that night that also can recall this event.

It was a mass sighting. Maybe it hit the press, maybe the police got a call. I'll see what I can find.

I'd like to mention a book I picked up you might find interesting: ((title deleted)) It's what triggered this memory again for me. If nothing else it's a good read.

Thanks for getting back to me so soon. I'll let you know what I can find out.
