Disk With Lights Hovering Over My Grandparents House

I apologize for taking so long to report my close encounter.

Sometime around the year 1968 I was visiting my Grandparents in Scottsville, Kentucky, for a while. We would go outside and sit on my Grandparents porch practically every night to just talk and so on.

This particular night my Grandmother and I were sitting out on their front porch as usual talking. Let me tell you that the night was totally dark--not a star in the sky. I dedided to go out in the front yard to look at the sky (I have always been facinated with the sky and stars etc.). When I got out in the yard, I looked up and saw a huge disk hovering directly over my Grandparents house. The perfect outline of a disk could be seen, and the disk had lots of lights all over it. This object made no noise what so ever.

I yelled out for my Grandmother to come and see this "thing" for herself-which she did. We were both astonished and amazed at what we were witnessing. She then called out for my Grandfather (who was inside the house) to come out in a hurry to see this object for himself. He too came outside and witnessed this disk. It just kept hovering over their house for five to ten minutes.

Then, in the blink of an eye, it was gone. It had to have taken off at a very great speed.

As I recall, their were several reports from all over Allen County that night of people witnessing the same type of crafts. Several were seen by a friend of mine-and he said one landed in their field. It was possibly on our local news the next day also. We were told that what we witnessed was a meteorite. As I recall, meteorites do not hover over a house (or anywhere) for five to ten minutes, and then fly away.

I am a Christian and have an open mind about many things, but this incident-I cannot explain it. This story is true-we DID see this object. We saw no "little green men etc.," but we did see something somehow beyond human comprehension.
