Full Report Text:

Two huge fireballs with blue tails. The sound was a rumbling roar. A hot summer night (early morning), nine months pregnant, my husband and I were out riding around because I couldn't sleep.

We were stopped at an intersection just outside the city limits towards St. Charles at approximately 3-4 am when we heard a roar and looked up to watch two huge BRIGHT fireballs with blue triangle "tails" go over our heads and disappear behind the tree line. My son was born exactly one week later with the nail missing off of his right index finger.

UFO in the shape of a triangle My experience with a UFO I put the date as 1984, since this has been many years ago, I'm not sure if it was 84 or 85. I didn't know anything about ufo reporting until watching a ufo show on tv. The Community was Glen Rose outside of Malvern.

I'm not sure what time it was or day, it was night and I had taken my poodle, "Cuddle's," outside to do his thing. Something drew my attention to what looked like a star, but watching it for I don't know how long, I realized the "star" was too close to the ground. I continued watching, again I don't know how long I watched this; I went into the house and got my two daughters and my eldest daughter's boy friend to come outside and look at this thing.

We stood on the porch again watching, what looked like a star, don't know how long we stood there, finallly I remember saying it was moving, then I thought it was a helicopter that was moving toward us. Everything seemed slow. The thing, was coming near, there was no sound, we watched as the object went almost directly over us, no sound, there was the white light at the front, with blue or green lights and it seems a red light somewhere, it has been so long ago to remember the details.

It was triangular shape. Ater this: I read a book about UFO's and it had the triangular ufo's mentioned like we saw on this summer night. I wrote the author and to my surprise he wrote back, I had told the author I had these small encaved objects on my skin, like a doodle bug home, this was mentioned in his book.

The author told me he couldn't say if I had been abducted at some time but gave me some names of hypmotist in local states that I could see, he also said that this could be very tramautic to me, I decided not see anyone. I do still have the letter from the author but haven't searched for them yet, unless you would like to see the documents. The UFO came from the west.

The only witness not around is my daughter I lost in a car accident at the age of fifteen. ((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD)).

Full Report Text:

This happened some years ago: I had taken my dog outside, it was dark, pm. I noticed what I thought was a star, the longer I looked, I thought this was a VERY Bright star, A star, but too close to the ground. I do not know how long I was outside looking at the light.

I went into the house, where my two teenage daughter's and a boy friend was, and told them to come look at what I had been watching. Again, I don't know how long we were outside. All of a sudden the LIGHT started toward us, (going east) it took some time, and then I thought it was a helicopter.

There was no sound, it was triangular in shape, and 2 or 3 different colored lights besides the white light in the center and dark in color. It went over a neighbors house. My daughters teenagers approximately 14 and 16 and the boyfriend 16, and myself saw this.

I have on my left thigh, a hole, sorta pitted. I wrote an author of a book years ago and he seemed to think I had a encounter of some kind, and said I could go to a hypmotist, but he warned this could be tramatic.
