This happened during the summer in 1958 in Ft. Worth, TX.
I can’t remember the exact date since this happen almost 53 years ago.
But I will never forget the moment I saw a UFO up close and in such explicit detail.
The colors and the moving parts of the craft.
I lived in the only 2 story house on my block when I was 8 years old.
My double bedroom window faced the East, I always had to go to bed at 8:00 p.m.
As I was climbing the stairs I began to hear a faint humming sound.
As I arrived at the top of the stairs and turned left to my open bedroom door.
I walked across my room to my opened windows, as the humming became easier to hear.
As I looked out my window, hovering over my neighbor’s house were 3 small flying saucers.
They were not just hovering in a stable state, but were tilting slightly as they were in their suspended state.
They were around 5' in diameter in a formation of a triangle, one in front and the other 2 behind the first.
They were roughly 5' below my window seal and no more then 20' away.
Back in the 1950s we didn’t have shows that were about UFOs, much less thought about them at my age.
I froze in disbelieve. For at least a minute I watch and listened.
All 3 were identical, first being saucer shape with a 2" diameter dome no more then a foot high, the outer skin was like frosted glass, barley transparent with a soft light within.
Around the edge was a 6" blue ring resembling dominoes side by side.
In the middle of the dome was a pendulum that went counter clock wise around and around.
It was easy to see passing under the frosted glass shell and the blue ring, which encircled the outer edge of the top of the spacecraft.
As the pendulum past under the blue ring of adjoining blocks, each block darkened as I watched it pass going slowly counter clockwise around and around.
All the time making the humming noise as it revolved. saw no movement of life inside except the moving part of the pendulum.
I had to prove to myself that this was real.
I turned around with my back to them, but still heard the humming sounds they were making.
I turned back facing them and watch in amusement for at least another minute.
I again turned my back to them.
As soon as I did, a few seconds past and the humming sound stopped.
I turn back towards my window and they were gone.
I don’t expect anyone to believe me.
My parents laughed, just as anyone else would have who has never witnessed such an unbelievable sight.
I even don’t expect whoever reads this to believe my story.
I never told a soul until a few years back to my wife of 22 years.
As I told her, I am probably just a few people on Earth who ever saw a UFO up close, much less 3.
Most sightings I read about are lights in the sky, not something as clear as looking at your TV set across the room.
I would not mind being tested under hypnosis or any other test to make believers of what I witness when I was 8 years old, but I doubt if even that would ever happen.
Because of my sighting I have no doubt what so ever that there are others in our universe.
As I became older I figured the small spacecrafts were more of a surveillance craft sending images back to the Mother ship, not occupied by small aliens.
