WHITESBURG -- The witness lives on a large farm of 500+ acres with his wife and several children.  One night in mid-June at about 10:30 PM, the witness' son came in from outside and remarked on a strange aircraft over their property.  The witness and family members proceeded outside, and over their adjacent field was a hovering oblong craft (thicker in the middle), with white and red lights.  The primary witness (PW) stated that it appeared to be about 500 yards away and about 150 feet in altitude, because the lights seemed to illuminate the tops of some nearby trees.  PW estimated that the object was about the size of a quarter held at arm's length, adding that his thumb end would not have covered it.  He looked at it thru binoculars and noticed that there were steady white lights around it's mid-line, with red lights seeming to move along the mid-line between the white lights, as if in sequence.  PW added that the actual structure seemed to be metallic in tone, comparing it ! to the color of a Greyhound bus, or a DeLorean automobile (dull stainless steel body).  Witness then took a large extremely powerful handheld spotlight used in night fishing and spotted the craft.  The object then moved from about 2 o'clock to about 10 o'clock at an unbelievable speed (eye blink speed according to the PW), there to once again hover over a different part of the field at about the same altitude.  At that time, additional similar objects appeared over the field, and at one point, three were stacked up in a hover.  The whole family observed seven objects for thirty minutes until 11:00 PM.  The objects then simultaneously vanished from view.

The PW also added another unusual aspect to this occurrence.  Several weeks before this event, one of his friends was using a remote part of the property to camp.  The next morning as he departed, he asked the PW if he had sneaked down to the campsite during the night to shine his night fishing spotlight through his tent wall.  The PW had not done so.  Additional investigation will follow.  Thanks to Tom Sheets, SD MUFONGA, ISUR Board.
