On the evening these events took place, I had just arrived at my mother's house off Hwy. 78 in a little subdivision close to and across the highway from Berlin G. Myers Lumber Co.

Not long after arriving I heard people talking loudly and with excitement just outside of the house.

When I went to the door there were about 15 or 20 neighbors looking and pointing at something in the sky above the subdivision.

I went onto the porch to investigate and sure enough there was some sort of craft hovering slowly high in the sky as if it was looking for something.

I ran in the house to get my driving glasses and when I returned the craft was so low I swear you wanted to reach up to try to touch it. It was huge and ominous looking.

It was shaped like your everyday 'Flying Saucer' medium colored gray flat metal construction.

As it continued to silently hover over our heads, a relatively small compartment slowly descended from the middle of bottom of the craft... there were lights in it but I couldn't see any occupants. Everyone was spellbound and silent.

All of a sudden and without warning it disappeared in an instant....and immediately a military looking helecopter came swooping in so close & fast over our houses, we ducked in panic. The chopper circled the area quickly once and headed off toward the airforce base.

Personally I'm not prone to believe in a future allien invasion...we have enough acting like that down here already, but I know what we all saw and quiet honestly I'm glad I am able to share the experience even though it has been about 50 years ago. God bless and keep looking up!!!
