UFO Sighting Report - USA
Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.
With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.
Fall 1948/1949 : Sunrise Beach, Missouri
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Sunrise Beach in the Hurricane Deck State Park area, State of Missouri USA
Date: evening dark probably between 7 & 9PM CST I was 9-10 years old so year was either 1948 or 1949 (I think in the fall)
Approach Direction: northerly
Departure Direction: northerly bt 5-6 round bright white objects split cluster
Witness Direction: northerly
Description: I was playing a 'hide & go seek' game...hiding with a friend behind some pine trees (Adults were there at the Park for a Parent/Teacher Meeting social.) I happened to look up and saw 5-6 bright nearly round white objects (seemed at the time that they were about the size of half-dollars.
Color/Shape: 5-6 bright white nearly round objects. We were in an undeveloped area...miles away from towns or developments. No one else including my friend, other kids or adults saw anything (probably 20-30 total at social). I was stunned and it seemed like minutes at the time...but on reflection more likely 10-20 seconds seeing them After seeing them grouped loosely left to right..they dispersed..I think breaking off from group going northerly and spreading out as they left.
Height & Speed: No idea! they were nearly if not stationary when I looked and saw them...They appeared to be about the size of 1/2 dollars or perhaps quarters. Perhaps anywhere from 50 ft to 300ft high and impossible to remember or know how far away (perhaps 1/2 mile???? or more.
TV/Radio/Press: None..For years until my mother's deathbed...she thought I was only just 'seeing things' I had never heard of UFO's until several years later...and have never in my youth or adult life been particularly interested in SiFi.
