Description (In Witness's Own Words): It was just after dark on June 24 1966. I was 14 years old. This happened in North Hollywood California. I was walking home from a friend's house when I noticed 3 rectangular lights about a quarter mile away. It was descending as it came closer to me. The 3 rectangular lights were on the front and in a row. The first one was yellow, the middle one was blue and the last one was red. I thought at first it was a helicopter, but it never made any noise. It stopped about 30 feet from me and just hovered. I couldn't see the shape because the lights were too bright. Suddenly the lights went out and a bright spotlight came on and shined right on me. I decided it was time to leave. I ran into a trailer park and hid in the bathroom. About 20 minutes later I snuck out to see if it was still there. It was gone so I ran all the way home. I never saw it again, but I did see a report from the Midwest that described a ufo that matched mine. Thanks for listening. I now live in Gainesville, Texas.

Investigator's Notes: Certainly this sighting had a dramatic affect on the witness given that he remembers the exact date after over 40 years. He makes a good argument that the object was not a helicopter. Because the case is so old no further investigation can be made. Anyone recalling a sighting in this area about this time is urged to file a report. (Drawings are welcome.)
