Hi John,

I have finally gotten around to looking up this sighting. I saw it too. The exact date was August 19, 1976. Let me tell you that I am in shock and quite elated to find your info on the web. So here is my story.

I was 17 and out and about with my friend John on this warm August evening. We had nothing to do so we were just driving around West Chester OH. We were near I75 at the Tylersville exit when I saw some lights in the sky. For some reason I thought it was an airplane pulling a lighted sign behind it. We pulled into the Royal Castle diner to see what the sign said. By the time we had gotten out of the car we could tell this was not lighted sign. We could see an outline of a very large space craft. The shape was the typical inverted saucers. It had one row of white lights going around the center. Within the white lights was one red light. As it came closer, the surface of hull was quite visible. I could make out what seemed to be pock marks or damage from “things” hitting it as it traveled through space. I could liken it to bugs or rocks hitting a car on the freeway. As the ship got closer it angled toward us. By this time a lot of people had come out of the diner, gas stations, and I think there was a McDonald’s or Dairy Queen also.

Okay so this ship is just huge. Maybe like a 3 story building. As it came closer it angled towards the crowd, I felt we were being recorded. It hovered for what I would approximate for 10 minutes or so. And then in about 2 seconds it was just a point of light out in space. Just as amazing as even seeing the ship is the fact that there was no noise and when it zoomed away from earth there was no suction of air.

Thanks and thanks again for making my day.
