Mr. And Mrs. J T Rankin and their daughters Katherine and Miss Mary Rankin watched in broad daylight a top shaped object, dark in color and 40' wide, land in their garden area on Pearson Street.
The object appeared to be hollow inside, and they were startled to see the head and shoulders of an occupant inside, through a window, he wore a dark tight fitting garment and a tight fitting head cover or helmet.
They watched for 5 or 10 minutes, when the object lifted straight up and moved off soundlessly. The object had the power to move perpendicularly and horizontally.
Both daughters revealed their hidden sighting to radio and television personnel in 1975.
