Eureka Springs, Arkansas - 12-15-77

While driving home, between Berryville and Eureka Springs, Arkansas, at around 9:30 in the evening on DEC. 15, 1977, I saw a very large wedge or triangular shaped UFO.

It was flying fairly low in the sky, not far above the treetops, and was nearby, so I could see it well.

It was moving quite slowly. The UFO had four white-to-amber spotlights, arranged in a square. There were also several red blinking lights.

There were two rows of windows, with a pale greenish light emanating from them. I heard absolutely no sound coming from it.

I watched it for several minutes, spellbound.

Then this huge thing sort of folded up on itself (sort of like origami) very quickly. The compacted version of itself then zoomed north, toward the state line.

I wrote down as many details as I could remember when I got home. The next morning I went to work at the Eureka Springs Times-Echo and told the owner, Bob Wheeler, what I had seen.

At first he was incredulous, but soon the paper's phones were ringing with reports from police, the sheriff's office, and the radio station.

I heard that Ira and Frances Whitney had seeen it. I walked from the newspaper office down to their Gem Store, where I interviewed them. I also interviewed a local man named Tex Belt who had seen the UFO.

I called a Berryville police officer who had watched the UFO for quite a while; unfortunately, our weekly paper was pasted up and ready to go to print, so Bob made the decision to insert a small article rather than run a front page story.

I gave UFOs little thought prior to actually seeing this one. I saw this before popular movies such as Star Wars; Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and E.T. were released.

Though some of the people I interviewed seemed to be afraid, my experience was one of awe and wonder. In fact, I stayed up for hours that night watching the sky, hoping the UFO would come back.
