Posted On By Myths&UFOs

Location of Sighting: Remote Part of Ohio (Exact Location Unknown)
Date of Sighting: December 2, 1974
Time of Sighting: 3 AM EST

Description: A woman and her brother were driving across Ohio right after Thanksgiving Day Weekend in 1974. They were traveling from Pennsylvania to California. She was 20 and her brother was 18. They were in a remote area on a two lane highway and were about 30 minutes from the nearest town. The car, radio and lights started intermittently going out. Then after a few minutes the car, radio and lights died. It was about 3 AM. The woman and her brother were alarmed and decided to try to get some sleep and planned to seek help the next morning. About 30 minutes later they saw a red flash (like a meteor) that went straight across a field. Then the car, lights and radio came on. They drove away. Her car never did this before or after the incident. The woman kept this to herself for years. Her brother called when the movie Close Encounters of Third Kind came out and advised her to go see it. She did so and said that the sighting was almost exactly like the car scenes in the movie. She reported the sighting after hearing a UFO investigator on a radio talk show. Up to that point she wasn’t sure where to report a UFO sighting until she listened to the show.

I was never much for UFO stories until I started to see strange stuff 2002 on the midnight starry sky! Together with my partner we stood out in the lonely woods and glared out in to the universe. We were admiring the stars. Then all of a sudden, the biggest star in a classical star formation, just ran across the night sky and just behind 4 more stars followed. I thought they ran fast to begin with, just to accelerate! After this, weird things started to happen. Before this, hunting for UFOs hadn't even crossed my mind!
