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:
The actual event took place august 17th, 1966, but your dates will not let me enter that year as it stops at 1968. a glitch maybe or you may not be interested in prior years. i have talked with cheryl gilmore, south carolina chapter who directed me to you.
originally i thought the orb landed in the woods, but since think it may have landed in the farm field. went into the woods the next day, but hornets chased us out, no one stung, hornets did not pursue us out into the soy beans. blue book was contacted by another individual i knew, who witnessed the orb only. two air force men that we assumed at that time were from grissom air force base about 60 miles away came out a week later. they said it was ‘swamp gas’. will discuss if contacted by mufon.
in 1978, through an employee of mine, i met a farmer who cited a ufo during the same week in 1966, that landed in his farm field in ohio straight west of where we were and not far from the border of indiana. he never reported it. he had pictures that his daughter may have of the spot where the craft landed. at the time in 1978, nothing had grown in that spot since 1966.
in october 2018, another ufo flew above our home here in south carolina. a neighbor witnessed the craft also. different craft in size and lights. can also discuss if contacted. if i need to file another report for the event last year, please let me know.
