Description: To whom it may concern: – Feb. 21, 2013
I was speaking to my sister and she said that she and I were the only ones left in our family who witnessed what we believe to have been a UFO sighting. It was years ago in 1957, I was 7 years old and my siblings were home alone living in the rural area of Farmington, OR My oldest sister was 17 at the time. She was washing the dishes and my other sister was in the bedroom when she happened to look outside. She began to holler that there was something in the sky. Peggy (the oldest) was getting pertnrbed at her because she didn’t understand what it was that JoAnn was making such a fuss about. We younger ones were outside playing. Peggy came running out pointing at the horizon, at an object that seemed to hover over the next farm’s huge oak tree. It looked like it was a huge sun, but we could see silhouettes inside. To my recollection, there was a man, a woman and a dog. (I know that sounds weird.) Peggy ran to the next farm (which I believe was about 1/8 if a mile away). The object got smaller and smaller as it was departing towards the horizon. No one was home next door except the deaf and mute person. When our parents came home we told them about it and they said we were crazy. I was told that there was an article in the newspaper where a deputy sheriff said that he was picked up by a UFO and released. My dad said that they put him in a crazy house and that is what they would do to us if we told people about it. Years later I went to the downtown library to try and check the 1957 newspaper, but I didn’t find any articles as such. Over the years I would ask my siblings to re-tell what they saw. It was always the same, except my brother ended up denying it. I know what I saw. There were five of us kids. Three of them are gone now. I would love to know if anybody else saw anything similar that summer evening. Two years ago I was in Stanton, Az. In the desert hills camping in a trailer. It was night, and I went outside to call my sister Peggy. I talked to her for a long time and suddenly I saw these red lights. They looked like they may have been on a pole such as you would see distance wise as street traffic lights. They were only red though and they blinked. I remember mentioning that to her. It was near 11:30 PM. I didn’t think too much about it, but the next day I took off on the four wheeler and I thought about those lights. I looked to see if there were poles in that direction that would hold those lights. There were no poles. It made me wonder.
