Family was getting ready for midnight mass on December 24, 1970. All bathrooms were taken with mothers and cousins doing their hair and fixing their dresses. ((sentence deleted))

As I looked up, I was in shock to see the underbelly of a flying dark grey metallic disk, emitting a soft blue light over the house, around 15-20ft. above the house.

I quickly ripped up ran toward the front door, opened it, and grabbed my mother and grandfather who were the closest.

The craft started moving toward Little Bay over the water, and then two jets showed up from Otis Air Base at Cape Cod. The saucer leaned to its side, the bottom became a firing ((sic. feiry??)) white red and in a flash, it became a tiny white light in the starry sky.

The two jets kept doing a circular pattern.
