1949 UFO Sighting In Grand Island, Nebraska

Date: Fall of 1949
Time: Evening.

Sir: I'm a real old guy (75) but I have a story to tell. In the fall of 1949 while a senior in high school I attended a night football game. I was sitting in the west bleachers facing east. At one point during the game I noticed a light in the eastern sky fairly low to the horizon. It slowly kept rising and the first thing I thought of that it was a *mail plane*. They were flying old DC-3s for that purpose back then. However, when it got up to about a 45 degree angle it stopped. I thought that that's odd. After a few seconds it shot off to the north making a 90 degree angle and man it was fast. It disappeared almost immediately. I've never forgotten this and ever since I've been a true believer in something out there.

Thank you very much to the witness for their report.
