A Blimp shaped craft witnessed December 20th, 1983 near Amesbury, Ma. USA

Report of sighting of a UFO December 20th, 1983. Time: 9:00 PM to 11:00 PM EST. Route 95 North, traveling towards Maine.

I picked up a hitch hiker trying to get back to Maine, and about a half hour after picking him up, we saw crossing the Highway a large blimp shaped craft the size of a football field wide, and it was glowing a bright amber light, as if it was lit up from the friction causing heat to make it glow like a coal in a fire place.

It was in front of us, as I stopped the car on the Highway about 100 to 200 yards ahead of us, and about 200 yards up over the highway.

It was not a blimp, nor a plane, not a fireball, nor a helicopter or jet. It had a powerful low pitched sound like humming and we watched it slowly move across the Highway and was only traveling about 20 to 30 mph since we were able to look at it as it moved across and kept traveling east over the Atlantic Ocean and then curved upwards and disappeared into the sky.

It was real, I know it was not from this Earth. I was honored to see it, I was not scared, just awestruck to open my eyes to see it as clear as I could. The hitch hiker and I had fun the whole ride to his house in Maine. It was reported on the radio from Kansas to Maine that night.


Witness indicates that the date is approximate. PD
