1974-75, Huber Heights, OH Silent saucer/UFO hovering over me, incredible speed.
In the 1970's, I was about 15 yrs old, living north of Dayton in an area called Huber Heights, just several miles south of I-70. It was a crisp, cold, clear fall night. I walked out the back door to feed my dog, hurrying because it was cold and I didn't have a jacket. I was maybe 20 feet from the house when something made me stop. (I'm getting shivers just remembering this) I looked up in the sky and almost overhead, hovering in total silence, was a large saucer shaped craft. It seemed close enough to reach out and touch, but of course it really wasn't. It had trapazoidal shaped white lights? Or windows of light?, that rotated around the craft, from left to right, skipping every other panel. The trapazoids were narrower at the top, wider at the bottom.
I just stood there staring at it in total shock I guess, for who knows how long. I remember screaming, dropping the dog food and running for the house.
When I started running, it started moving, heading west at an extremely high rate of speed. Remember, I lived near Wright-Pat, had been to the Dayton Air Show, had seen fighter planes and the blue angels. I knew what a plane looked like in the sky. I had never seen anything moving at the speed this thing attained.
By the time I could get my father and air force uncle to the door, maybe a span of 20-30 seconds, it was nearly out of sight on the horizon. My uncle said he had never seen anything move so fast.
I have always wondered if anyone else saw anything in the sky that night in Ohio.
Later in life, I learned about Roswell, aliens, UFO's, and watched shows about Hanger 18 at Wright-Pat. I've wondered if this was reverse technology in action.
Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
