UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Oil City, Pennsylvania Venango County

Date: The date was either 09/75 or 10/75. The exact date I don't recall. The time was around 1200 to 0130.

Approach Direction: Object was hovering about 75 to 100 feet above Colbert Avenue. I had a clear view from my bedroom window at 420 Colbert Avenue.

Departure Direction: Object departed south over the Allegheny River towards the Quaker State tank/drum on top of the hill.

Witness Direction: My brother and I were facing south, looking out our upstairs bedroom window.

Description: At the time I was 11 years old. I awoke from my sleep becuase I heard a humming sound (much like a generator), though it wasn't real loud. The humming sound seemed to be pulsating. I got up and looked out the right upstairs window (if you are facing the house). I first saw a red pickup truck (early or late 60's) stopped in front of our house. The man in the truck had his left arm and shoulder out of the truck and he was looking over his left should up to the sky. When I looked up at the sky, I saw a UFO hovering in place. As it was hovering, my brother Terry woke up and I told him to look out the window (he looked out the left window). We watched in silence as the UFO hovered for about 30 seconds, then it took off over the Allegheny River in a flash.

Color/Shape: The UFO was silver with a darker grayish silver ring around the center of it. Above the dark ring in the center of the UFO appeared to be a window (also darker that the silver). At both the top and bottom of the UFO was a cylinder glowing (plusating) yellowish white light. The UFO was about 25 to 30 feet wide and about 15 to 20 feet high.

Height & Speed: The height of the UFO was about 75 to 100 feet above the ground. When the UFO took off towards the Allegheny River and over the Quaker State drum on the hill it was gone in about 1.5 seconds.

TV/Radio/Press: Being 11 years old I didn't think to check newpapers for other reports. I do remember other kids in the block saying the heard about the UFO. They said they heard it landed by the cemetery near the High School, which is near the Vo-Tech building. That being said, it is possible that my sighting is related to the 25 October 1975 reporting on your site. Though I do know 100% that my sighting was at about the time I mention above, not 6:30pm.
