Additional Information collected by HBCC UFO Research.

Dear Mr. Brian Vike

I hope this information will help you in finding some answers and if you need any further information I would be more than happy to help you.

Could you be able to tell me how long you were able to watch the event for ?

Answer....I was able to watch this event for 25 to 30 seconds until the object was out of my range of view. right before the object passed overhead I kind of had a strange feeling that something was about to happen but I had no clue as to what was going to happen only a gut feeling which I only get when something major is about to happen to me or people around me, I guess you could say it is a very mild form of ESP which I never think twice about or never decided to look into ?

Also can you tell me what the weather conditions were that night ?

Answer...as far as I can remember it was a perfect clear night or should I say early morning, all the stars were out and not a cloud in the sky, it was very calm and almost too calm as the trees were not moving, it was like the old saying the calm before the storm.

Besides the light, were you able to see any shape to the object that was causing the bright light ?

Answer...as far as I could tell the only source of light was the object itself, it reminded me of a 3-D hologram type of light but I could tell it was a huge rectangle shape and it was amber in color like if you were to shine a light through a brown glass beer bottle.

Did you happen to see a trail or tail following behind the light ?

Answer...I did not see any tail or trail left behind the light, but I do remember as it passed over our trailer the wind started to kick up and the trees started moving as they do with winds right before a thunder storm hits.

Did you notice if the light you observed lit up the area ?

Answer... The light did not light up the area at all, no light was projected on the ground as a normal search light would have done, the amber color light looked as if were self contained within the rectangle shape. As far as I can recall I don't even think it lit up the tree top areas as it passed overhead.

Was there any reaction to a pet, or any animals in the area ?

Answer...I did notice my dog Maggie, which is a chocolate lab, acting as if she had to go outside and use the bathroom as she was nervous or just acting kind of strange after the object passed by the trailer. I do remember also that other dogs in our area which are outside dogs were barking but only after the object had passed out of sight.

Were there any other witnesses besides yourself ?

Answer... no I was the only person that seen the object because my father and brother were sound asleep at 2:30 am that morning. Since then I have seen other things in the sky and in the company of my brother and other people as well. The only time I was in a group of people that all spotted the same thing was back in 1979 with 3 of my friends on a road trip coming back from San Diego to Boston by car. But that was so long ago I did not think to report that sighting and would have done so if computers were a basic tool back then like they are now. If you would like to hear about that sighting back in the 70s I would be happy to tell you all about it. It took place within 2 or 3 weeks from a mass sighting which made the news and thousands of people called in reporting a sighting at Palo Alto California.

Were you able to estimate how far the object was any from your location ?

Answer... The object looked as if it was just above tree top level , most of the trees in the area are approx: 60 to 80 feet tall but if I was to guess at the exact height all I can say is if it were a solid object I could have thrown a rock at it and hit it with no problem. The trailer we were living in at the time was about 60 feet long and the object of light looked as if it was at least 20 feet wider than our trailer was long, if the object was a solid mass form. It looked as if it could have been 20 to 25 feet tall and the length was at least as long as 5 school buses bumper to bumper which would be about 150 to 160 feet long

Thank you to the witness for the report.
