The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
a white gold ball sized object was observed in the western sky from dayton ohio on april 7, 1969. object was traveling south to north from our point of observation in a relatively horizontal path for roughly 15 minutes. after 15 minutes the device began to immediately descend on a vertical path for about 5 minutes.
as the object descended vertically for 5 minutes, near the end of this time, the device began to face out.
as it began to fade out, a seemingly “new” craft began to appear at the beginning point of its trajectory. this cycle continued for roughly 9 to 12 times.
my mother called wright patterson air force base to report this sighting.
