UFO SIGHTING REPORT
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Name: Robert Johnson
Location: Amarillo, Texas, Randall County, USA
Date: approx July, (summer 1966) numerous times a night for 1 week after dusk Central Standard time.
Approach Direction: Almost perfect North to South
Departure Direction: South
Witness Direction: North to South as they went over
Description: I'm 55 years of age and was 16 at the time. A clear night in the panhandle of Texas is like a bowl of stars has been turned upside down from horizon to horizon. Perfect stargazing.
My friend and I were laying on the roof of a garage, with a perfect view of the night skies,when we noticed lights coming from north to south in a "v" shaped formation at a high rate of speed. There were 8-10 perfectly round circles, white in color, with no sound. There was 1 circle zig-zagging within the formation, like the patterns made when shaking a flashlight back and forth. It was difficult to judge actual size, the the stars being constant while the objects moved overhead.
That was the first time we spotted the objects. The second was aproximately 1 hour later. Same direction, 15-16 lights in a check shape formation, different altitude (Higher). Over a period of 1 week, nightly we observed these objects almost by the clock 1 hour between sightings,different altitudes, as few as 6 and as many as 20-25, with the closest being the size of a dime held at arms length, the most distant being the size of the average star in the sky. Always in a "V" formation or check shaped with more objects being in one leg than the other, always varying from sighting to sighting. The smaller the objects appeared to correspond with the time it took to travel from horizon to horizon. The larger the obects appeared, the faster they appeared to be traveling, with 3-4 seconds from horizon to horizon, 10-15 seconds when they were much higher.
During one sighting the obects were about the size of a dime at arms length, tavelling at a high rate of speed, when the object that was last in the line on the west leg made a 90 degree high speed change of direction (not a turn!)to the west, with the rest of the formation traveling south at the same high rate of speed.
We reported these sights to the UFO Dept of the Amarillo Airforce Base. we were informed that there were no unusual weather conditions. No plane formations flying according to their records and nothing spotted on Radar, and no other reports from individuals. They said they were going to send an observer, to watch with us, but noone ever showed up and we never saw the objects again after that one week period of time.
Just a few years I watched a program on TV about UFO's. A map of the USA was displayed with stick pins representing many sightings during the same period of time as our sightings. The Panhandle of Texas and the state of New Mexico were solid with stick pins. There was even a video shown that looked exactly like the formations we saw. That was the only video or picture that I have ever seen that looked like the objects i saw.
Color/Shape: Glowing White. Round spot(not a globe).
Height & Speed: different altitudes,different speed according to altitude
TV/Radio/Press: No public reporting. we had numerous people that started watching and witnessed the same things we did.
