South Dakota - 1966

I have seen so many TV shows and read so much about different UFO sightings and 99% of the time, it is a light miles away, or something so vague, nobody would have a clue what it was.

The sighting we had was a long time ago, so you are probably not interested anymore, but I remember it like it was yesterday.

I was in 7th grade. My friend was spending the night at our farm and we, along with my parents were on our way to a small town about 7 miles from us.

We were 1/2 mile north of our farm, going north, when we noticed a very bright light to the east/southeast of us, probably a 1/2 - 1 mile away.

It appeared to be very close to the ground and either hovering or moving very slowly. My Dad said it had to be a helicopter and possibly a game warden or similar.

About another 1/2 mile to the north was my uncle's farm and there was a big hill that the road cut through. We went in an approach into a field where we could get up to the top of the hill.

We watched the object, still distant slowly moving to the northwest. We watched it for 2-3 minutes, and then the bright light went out and we couldn't see it anymore.

We watched for a couple more minutes, seeing nothing and then it appeared again northeast of us, still heading northwest.
