When I was 7 my dad built a house in Farnham, NY, in a wooded area next to Lake Erie, about 30 miles south of Buffalo, NY.
In my bedroom I had one window facing the woods, the other facing a field. I would awaken to a bright white light shining through the sides of my drawn shades.
When I looked out the window facing the woods, I saw several disc-shaped craft at different distances, randomly flashing their white lights down to the ground & over the lake.
I remember the lights through the trees as they got closer. I would hide under my bed or in the closet when they came. There was a neon blue light that as I was hiding I knew I couldn’t let it touch me or they would take me.
The blue light would move around the room. It would go around the bed, shining on the floor. When I was in my closet I had to snug up really close into the far corner because it would shine under the door, moving back & forth.
Then it would be gone as quick as it came. My parents always told me it was a bad dream... every time it happened. It was 1959; no TV or movies back then.
I didn't know how to tell them what I was experiencing since I didn't have the words to explain it. It wasn't until I was an adult & saw 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' that I had that panicked feeling again. The sight of those white & blue lights! This went on for years.
When I was about 11-years-old, my uncle came over one evening & asked "Do you want to look for UFOs?" I asked him what he meant. What were UFOs? Of course my parents must have shared my "dreams" with him. But my uncle was serious about this.
We would have our binoculars & we observed more unusual "light" activity over that lake than I ever could have imagined. When I was 13, August 19, 1965, there was a documented UFO landing in Cherry Creek, NY, not all that far from us.
My dad told us about it & packed me, my 2 brothers & my mom in the car to go see where this happened. I could hardly believe it that my parents now acknowledged this activity did go on!
When we got there, there were a lot of people. Lots of military people & military vehicles. People with cameras & lots of confusion.
I remember my dad getting waved on to exit the area. The officer had a frantic look on his face as he feverishly waved us on.
My next experience happened in the mid-70s. I was shopping with my 6-year-old daughter in Hamburg, NY, about 10 miles south of Buffalo, NY, along Lake Erie.
It was dark & I noticed a large, round, white light moving strangely in the sky. I said to my daughter & she remembers me saying it... "I think that's a UFO!"
I pulled over & we watched it. Before I knew it, there were several other people pulling over to watch it, and then it was gone.
Also in the mid-70s I lived in North Collins, NY, about 20 miles south of Buffalo. On the news they said we would be able to see Skylab crossing the night sky like a fast moving star.
My sister-in-law & I were in the driveway looking in the direction of Skylab’s path. We were getting disappointed, thinking we had missed it. So we started looking in a different direction behind us.
Just then over my 2 story house was an absolutely silent, huge tubular H-shaped UFO. It was tumbling end over end, just above the trees.
We looked at each other & I said "That wasn't Skylab!"
As we turned around & faced our original direction, we did see Skylab making its path. She was a nonbeliever until that night!
In 1994 I was driving with my 18-year-old son & his girlfriend to take her home. It was about 9:00 PM. We were in Lawtons, NY, about 25 miles south of Buffalo.
My son said "What is that thing?"
About half a mile to the left of us was a big, glowing white sphere traveling east. It was going in the same direction as us & got a little ahead of us. We watched it zigzag, go up & down behind the tree line then it was gone.
We dropped off his girlfriend & to our right it appeared again. There were several smaller white lights now with it & my son called them "chasers" because they seemed to chase or maybe even follow the larger white sphere.
We were on a very rural back road. They all disappeared again when my car radio started getting a lot of static & my car was sputtering. My son said "Ma, they're back!"
There they were to our right again. I pulled over & shut the car off. To my left coming from the west was a massive, black triangular UFO heading toward us.
The smaller white chasers were with it. I opened my window. My son climbed onto the car floor and said to get the heck out of there.
But all I could do was stare at this craft as it got closer to us. It had a red light on the front point & a white light on each of the rear points. It was totally silent.
When it was about over us it took off going north & about a second later it was gone. The chasers were gone too. My car started up fine. The radio was fine.
It wasn't until quite a few years later that I saw a show on about black triangles. I didn't know that what we saw had a name & that others had seen them.
Over the years I've had many, many more experiences with sightings. These are a few of my most profound.
My husband's always saying they keep finding me. That's how I feel.
Thank you Billy for allowing me the opportunity to share these reports with you. We are not alone.
And I thank the submitter for sending in her report.
