Another sighting from Kalamazoo

I was camping in the woods between Galesburg and Kalamazoo sitting by a small fire when I suddenly heard a very loud sound coming from the direction of the gravel pit which was approx. 300 yards from my camp. It sounded like a Kawasaki motor cycle reved to about 15,000+ RPM's!

I jumped up to see if I could spot it but saw nothing.

The sound lasted only about 15 sec then was gone.

The next day one of the farm hands came by and told me some local kids were riding their dirt bikes in the gravel pit when they saw a craft take off out of there.

I asked him if it was at about 8:30 last night and he said yes it was. I told him I heard the thing take off. He asked me if it would be alright if the kids came back there to talk to me about it because they thought they were nuts. I told him it was.

The kids stopped by and told me what it looked like. They said it looked like a barbell or two vertically positioned disks with a tube between connecting the disks. I guess it looked like Darth Vader's fighter craft (!) which seems very odd indeed.

The next day I took a walk down to the gravel pit to see if there were any marks on he ground. I found an odd looking depression in the gravel. It was conical like you would expect as if someone had removed some ground in gravel and the sides caved in to form a cone shape but, there was no sign of the removed dirt nearby! It was as if something was extracted from underneath and the gravel settled back down into to the space below.

There are some strange goings ons at this gravel pit during years of near Earth/Mars approaches as during my report of 1977.

I would like to note that this year 2003 was a near pass year between Earth and Mars.


Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
