She said >they would go out at night and sit on the patio. They would look out >above the outhouse and watch these strange lights. she said they had >two lights side by side, with a third light like a tail (her >description reminded me of a manta ray). She said that around a >certain time of night, they would see one "zip" over and stop high >above the outhouse. Soon after, another one would come "zooming" up >next to it. The two UFO's would sit there for a few seconds next to >each other. Then all of a sudden, one would shoot off one way, then >the other would shoot off the other way. After a few minutes, one >would "zip" back to the same place then the other one would show up.

Date is approximate. We have assigned a date in late 1950's, so that the report sorts to that era. PD
