I once rented a housing unit that was commonly known among Carolina Beach locals as the "DunRoman" cottage at Carolina Ave. North in Carolina Beach N.C. which is now the 800 block but was then the 600 block before the town revised the layout. A famous actor purchased the property and had the old beach home demolished and built a new home there.

I believe my sighting took place around the eleventh of April,1987 but I'm not certain as to that exact date. However I am certain of the following.

While I was admiring the beautiful ocean scenery from the back porch facing the ocean ,I saw a UFO.It just appeared before my eyes.It did not merely just sail in from some perimeter.It manifested instantly.It was a fairly dark night and this tubular shaped UFO was very large.

This also was a very up close encounter.I called for my son and after several emotional outcries he finally responded by rushing out to the back porch.He still is very haunted by the memory.I too have no equal experience to diminish this.

As far as features go,there were no signs on this craft revealing it being assembled by the usually standardized fabrications we see in aircraft such as rivetings or weldings or paint.However there were metallic trims around the many windows that adorned this airship from front to back that seemed to be the only thing I could define as perhaps seeming "natural" to my eyes.It was raw metallic and flawless in it's design.It had semblance to a blimp but however this was a colossus that stretched several hundred yards in lenghth and had no carriage or motor housings.

It made no noise that I might discriminate and the ocean was relativity quiet. A brilliant ray-beam of light emitted from the entire bottom side.My son left in my car to go in pursuit of this craft as I watched it slowly travel left to points ahead.

A short time later at 11:00 PM the local news media reported that the Coast Guard Auxiliary Station at Carolina Beach, N.C. issued a statement that the UFO being reported by people all up and down the Eastern Seaboard was nothing more than just their drug surveillance vehicle.Me and my son began to laugh.

It was the one time we could as that UFO was and still remains to this day the most spellbinding encounter to date.

He posted his post about this years ago on this website and no one has backed him up as he asked for.Well here is my account.


Witness indicates that date is approximate. PD
