Date: around 07/15/73 around 10:00PM
Approach Direction: south/west towards Eke Crater
Departure Direction: north/east coming in 5 miles off the water
Witness Direction: north/east approximately
Description: When I first saw the object, I was lying on the beach in my sleeping bag. I looked up and out about 5 or so miles and saw this object a little bigger than a star. It would be still for a few seconds and then shift to the right then make a beep sound, then wait and then repeat the shift to the right a few more times with a beep soundafter each shift. At this point I closed my eyes for a few seconds and could here inside my head a morse code type sound pulsating real fast. Then the object moved quikly towards my right side(north/east)then it hovered slowing turning from right to left just a little as it approached the shoreline.I can't remember where the lights were place, maybe front, back and middle but it was shaped like an upsidedown saucer with a quarter round top.It went behind the trees and I lost site of the object. The next morning I talked to a friend that said she was down the beach around the same time I was, and we both interupted each other to say "I saw a UFO on the beach last night"! I asked her if she hear the sound from it as it shifted left to right? She said no, she only heard the little waves breaking on the shore. For about three weeks after that encounter I felt full of alot of extra energy that I never experienced before. I play flute and after that encounter my flute playing improved suprisingly, especially my tone quality! I'm still amazed to this day.
Color/Shape: Gun metal grey with the full moon shinning off of it--the shape was of a upside down saucer with a quarter round top half the size of the saucer diameter.
Height & Speed: 5-6 miles out and hard to say how high from the water. Hovering speed when it reach the shorelinewas aproximately 75 to 100 mph
