I did not fill out your form as it is not working. My mother and I were walking out of our local grocery store when we heard loud clanging music above us. we looked up to see bold lights coming from a moving object in the sky. I remember looking at my mother and it disappeared.it it seemed to be very close to us and yet up high. It was a bit disorientating. Like did we just see a helicopter or a ufo.? The colors would suggest it was not a helicopter. the music was loud and unharmonious and clangy. the sky was dark. This happened in Orange county Calif. between 6-7 pm. 1974-75. I am 54 years old now and I can recall that moment clearly as if it had just happened. It was a little like the craft in close encounters. I have always wondered did anyone report it. I heard Peter talk on the unexplained podcast with Howard Hughes and he said no matter how lon ago it happeneed please report it . so I did. Thank you!! I nowlive in Ireland
