Sighting #15451 returned 1/2 mile on county rd. 3408 off Hwy. 84 in Timpson, Tx. Area

The first time was seen by my brother living with my grandmother when first sighted in report #15451. The lights were coming directly over the house and hundreds of the multicolored circular lights moved on the ground, never overlapping each other even under the trees in the woods. My brother wanted to go outside and look up over the house but my grandmother told him that he might not want to see what was up there.

The second time they appeared was probably about 1961. My cousin and I were living with my grandmother and woke up around 2300 with a red light in our faces coming through the window of the front bedroom. We woke my grandmother, she did not get out of bed but told us not to go out side. We both got up and watched the colored lights for about an hour moving all over the ground. We did not remember going back to bed.

The third time was some time in the early 70's during the summer. My cousin's younger brother was visiting my grandmother and I. Again, we were woken up by the a red light at about 0200. The same scenario repeated. Again, we did not remember going back to bed.

The last time was probably in about 1967 when the same cousin's younger brother was spending the summer with our grandmother and I. A beam of red light was shining in the same bedroom window sometime during the night. This time, there were no colored lights. Outside about 30 feet from the house was a spinning red light. At first we thought it was a police car or a truck. We could not see a vehicle or hear anything coming from it and there was no knock at the door. We always wondered why we didn't seem to be interested in what was going on outside because we went back to sleep.

These were never discussed outside of the family for fear of people making light of it or thinking we were crazy. During each episode, our dogs never barked.

I was raised in the pine woods of East Texas and was never afraid to fish, hunt or walk in the woods at night. Strangely, from the last incidence until I graduated high school in 1968 and went into the Navy, at night before bed I became very uncomfortable when I went to the kitchen to throw the bolt on our back door. I always felt that something was going to walk through the door before I could lock it.

I started to drive down the road to the house in 1987 to see the house one more time and became overcome with dread. At the time, it was a single lane dirt road and I backed up all the way to Hwy 85.

Even today, the thought of returning to my grandmother's home where I was raised gives me an uneasy feeling.
