1970 - Close Encounter in Southern New Jersey
UFO Depiction
Published: 7:45 AM 11/29/2013

Port Norris, New Jersey - June, 1970

I was 13 years old and with several cousins and friends. We were playing hide and seek at my Aunt's house just down the street from where I lived.

We had been playing from the time it got dark outside. So I`m guessing about the time it happened but maybe between 8 pm and 9 pm. It could have been later, but we were always in the house by 10 pm.

Anyhow, I decided to hide in a field that was grown up with weeds; it was right behind my Aunt's house. I walked into the field maybe 30 to 50 feet and lay down in the soft weeds on my back so no one could see me.

I could hear the other kids talking but not very well. As I lay there I noticed an object way off in the distance. It was very small. If I had held out my hand to measure it, it would have been about the size of my pinky nail.

As I watched it suddenly came to stop directly over me in a split second. It moved so quickly that I didn`t see it actually move from where it was to where it stopped.

I laid there looking at it and remember like it just happened today. I didn't feel afraid at all but just felt mesmerized by what it was doing. I know it was only about 300 ft above me because it was so easy to see.

It was round looking at it from the bottom, but I know it was saucer-shaped from what I saw when it left, but I'll get to that in a moment.

It did not make any sound at all. It was mostly metallic in color and had several lights that were in rings, "one inside the other." There were 5 rings and each ring had maybe 20 to 30 light shapes in it that were changing color, size and shape as they moved around the ring.

The light shapes within each ring was moving in a different direction than the other rings. Each light shape was not a clear square or triangle or oval or other shape.

Each light shape was dark in color and did not light up the ground where I was. I remember thinking it was beautiful.

It only stayed there like that for around 30 to 45 seconds or perhaps a minute. Then as suddenly as it came, it left.

I remember it leaving just a short blur of itself going in the direction it came from but could not see it disappear into the distance.

Within the blur I saw a side view of a saucer shape. The blur it left was about 100 to 300 ft long. I asked the other kids if they saw it, but no one had. I could not believe they didnít see it.

If one of them did, then they never admitted it. This was my first sighting of three in my life. I have been telling others about it my whole life. My next 2 sightings there were witnesses but that's another memory.

This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer of MUFON New Jersey.
