The Hair On My Neck Stood Up

The Hair On My Neck Stood Up

Date: August 15, 1957

Location: Longview, WA

My uncle and I were standing outside on a warm summer evening.

We were talking about unions and looking up at the stars.

It was about 1:00 a.m. and the sky was very clear, we were facing South.

There was a garage in front of us and a pear tree behind.

North to South we had about 60° of sky visible.

To the West and East most of the sky was visible, then the stars disappeared.

There was no noise.

The hair on my neck stood up.

All I could yell was did you see that?

My uncle and I compared observations, we had the same impressions.

What appeared to be a triangular shaped, unlit, solid object had blocked out the stars, all of the stars.

The duration of the blockage was very short.

The object had to be large and very close to completely block out the stars, there was no noise.

I was about 12, my uncle was about 30 years older.

We often spent hours night after night during the summer talking outside.

Never before or after seen such an object.

My uncle was unemployed at the time but had previously worked as a surveyor for the city, I was of course a student.
