Unusual Sighting In Florida

Date: January 1, 1954

Location: Lakeland, FL

At approximately 1:00 a.m., I was awakened by a light shining through the window directed at me.

This was 10 miles out in the country, closest neighbor ½ a mile.

I went to the window and the light followed me.

Then I saw a disk hovering above the ground about 20' away.

It had lights around the bottom in I believe warm colors.

I watched for over an hour, looking for some kind of beings, but did not see any.

The light became more intense and that is the last thing I remember until waking on the floor by the window at daybreak.

I was 14 at the time and related the story to my dad at the time.

We went down to the area where I said I had seen the craft and we found the usually wet swampy ground to have become hardened like pottery in a roundish shape similar to the size of the craft.

After that time I watched for the craft again and never saw anything like it.

But I began to feel differently, and more attached to my own life, could have just been the age at the time?

Several years later in California when I was returning to my apartment about midnight I saw a similar craft cruising along about 550' above.

But it had a short tube up to a small ball on top of it from the dish like craft, same lights beneath.

At the time I was a student pilot and called the Long Beach tower and the Lakewood sheriffs office and they had nothing.

After cruising along at altitude, it took off upward and outward in seconds out of sight.
