late in out. 1973 i witnessed a ufo, and to make it short. it like stayed with me. if i sped up. it, if i slowed down it did. this went one for about 6 miles. then it was goin just as fast as it came.

i was 17 yrs. old when this happen, in oct. 1973, i had just left my girlfriends house about 11:30pm at nite. she lived in washington c. h., ohio. about 12 miles from where i lived. i headed home down south bound sr 41 about 6 miles is a cross road it is sr 41 and miami trace rd. at that intersection off to my right a giant red object appered. the nite was dark. this was one of those nites when the moon was not out. any way it was big and round. at that point the trees are way back off of the road. and it was just above the trees. as i went on down the road the trees would get closer to the road. they were just over the fence and so was it. i sped up it stayed with me, i slowed down it was their. i could not loose it. this went on for about 6 or 7 miles. then at the intersection of sr41 & sr 753 i passed a trucking co. on my right and as i passed one big building it went behind the building and i never saw it again. i went on home told my mom and dad about it. dad said come on lets ride back out their. we did . we did not see anything this time. although my dad did manage to get pulled over by an ohio state trooper. he just wanted to know what we were doing out their at that hour. dad told him. his responce was well i been out here all nite and i never saw anything. mom said when i got home and walked in i was as white as a ghost. they were the only ones that beleved me. at least i know what i saw that nite. i will never forget it. i still get goose bumps thanking about it. now here is a little more you can look in to and if you can find this old video its a film called ufo's are real, a brandon chase film. their is a pice in it that goes rite along with my siteing. i thank his name was lt. col lawrence coyne, u.s. army. he was in a helecopter up in ohio around mansfield, ohio i bleave. he reported seeing the same thing i saw . and he tells about it in this film. it happen the same mounth i beleve and the same year. what was really strange i bought the film, then did not get to watch it tell a few year! s later. and when i saw that piece of the tape and it was the same thing at the same time , and the same place by about 100 miles. i got my goose bumbs all over. i still to this day have the film. and always will. if ever any of this would be useful i would talk to anybody about it. thank you
