Flying disk near Air Base in Charleston SC around 1962 summer

I was a small child on my front porch when I spied in the sky half in the clouds a disk like craft with lights circling. I remember this clearly. It seemed the lights were of amber color but not sure. I thought I saw small windows too. I ran into the house and pulled my mother out to see it. She was boiling eggs. She looked up and said where, I don't see it. I pointed up to it and before I could say anything it was gone in a blink. Before I could pull down my pointing arm I felt light headed and almost fell off the porch. My mother went inside and was complaining about burning the eggs. I went straight to bed. That evening when my father came home (He worked at the air base), I remember they both got me up and took me to the ER because my tonsils had hemoraged all over my pillow. The ER doctor said they had ruptured. Going to the ER helped me remember the time line of the UFO sighting.


Witness indicates that the date of the incident is approximate. One report indicate June 1st, 1962. The other indicated August 1st, 1962. We have assigned an arbitrary date of June 1st, 1962, to the second report. PD
