UFO SIGHTING REPORT
Peach Mountain Pottsville, Pennsylvania Cigar Shape Object
Date: September/October, 1964
Time: Early evening
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Cigar Shape
Full Description of event/sighting: When I was 6 years old my mother (36 years) and sister (8 years) were sitting at the kitchen table doing homework. It was a pleasant early fall evening and the leaves were off falling off the trees. I looked up because of a bright light and saw a cigar shaped object fly by the kitchen window. This was strange because it was so close to our house. It was flying in between our house our neighbor's which was less than 50 yards away. In order for the object to pass our window it had to be no more than 15 feet off the ground. Our house was on a hill so we were higher than our neighbor's. My mother sister and I jumped up and ran out of our back door to watch it. We actually ran with it for about 30 feet before my father called us back inside. My mother called The Pottsville Republican, our local newspaper, who told her it was just a comet or meteor.
My memory of all this is rather vivid. There was no noise what so ever and it was moving rather slowly about 8-10 miles per hour. It has a yellowish glow, it was not so bright that you couldn't look right at it. It did not look like the "typical" UFO pictures of flying saucers that you see. It moved along with the topography of the land, because we watched it move up over a hill as it disappeared over the horizon. This all lasted about 5 minutes and my mother and sister both have similar and distinct memories of the incident.
Thank you very much to the witness for the report.
