Flying Object Over Christiansburg Pike


about 1972



"The kids and I were upstairs.  We had Venetian blinds.  I looked out and across the street something came down in the neighbor's yard, like this [she made a motion with both her hands as if something slowly settled down].  It was dark.  You couldn't tell how big it was, but it had a light.  I was scared and shut the blinds.


Then on the opposite side of the room a bright light came on in the window.  I don't know if it was the same thing or another one.  But I've never seen a light so bright.  The kids were there too.  We all saw it.  It was totally silent.  The kids and I were scared and we went into another room.
