Occurred: 1974-05-01 01:00 Local - Approximate
Reported: 2009-10-04 08:47 Pacific
Duration: 3min
No of observers: 2

Location: Ft. Bragg, NC, USA

Shape: Circle

A big light bulb that is Lit, but has no light around it (Kinda like a big basketball hovering)

A Ball (circle) of Light hovered above in the front of our military Vehicle (Jeep). My working partner awoke me (We were Military police taking a break in the woods at Smith Lake) & pointed to this Light (a Ball that didn't emit light around it but was lit itself) and it just stayed in front of our Jeep. It slowly came toward us so my partner cranked the Jeep up & was backing up as it came toward us & suddenly took off toward the left sky at an unbeleivable speed. I say that because it was still seen in the far far left part of the horizon & just dissapeared.

Our Radio was abuzz at this time with other units calling in about seeing UFO's. A call came in over the radio for all units to return to the Station. When all units returned (2 man unit patrols in Vehicles) we ware suprised to see the head of Military Police there. (it was the wee hour of the morning) We were told : Anyone disscuss, or talk about this night would receive an immediate "article 15" (punishment consisting of money taken & possible confinment & extra work). We were dismissed & returned to our patroling duties. From that time to now, that has bothered me & seeing something close to what I KNOW I & someone else saw...I'm very very curious.

The last time I saw my partner was in Germany during the Kuwait Invasion. We are both retired Military.


Witness indicates that date is approximate. PD
