Ball of "Fire " turns to Cigar - shaped craft

Ball of Fire turns to Cigar shaped UFO While driving north on Lawrence Road to Lantana Road on the evening of June 17, 1977, the driver noticed a red " Ball " flickering above the treetops, about a quarter mile away to the north. The car was stopped at an intersection and the 2 adult occupants got out and stood in the roadway in front of the car and watched the "ball " for a min. or so. Not knowing exactly what it was , the car zoomed to Lantana road and went east .

The other adult passenger and child watched as the "Ball " also turned east and then became a " Cigar, " huge, at least the length of a football field, with some red fire or smoking glow. It also had portholes. As the car advanced in speed, the craft flew up & out to the east, over the ocean until it was out of site, at a rapid speed .

All 3 of the witnesses had never seen such a display and are worthy citizens.

Personally, as one of the witnesses, I could not sleep that night, or for a few nights afterward and told my wife who scoffed at me about it. But the other witnesses also had sleep problems for a while and have sworn to the truth of what we saw that night .
