Possible Virginia Encounter?

Possible Virginia Encounter?

Date: June 23, 1954

Location: Lorton, VA

My Mother has told me this story twice with about a 30 year interval between the tellings.

I believe it was an experience that greatly impressed her, and the story was substantially the same at both tellings.

When I was approximately 2 years old my Mom & Dad and I lived in the 2 upstairs rooms of my grandparent's house in Virginia.

At that time the area was very rural.

My Mom said that she woke up one night after midnight and I was crying, she was also aware of a loud buzzing sound like bees.

She went to the crib and tried to quiet me but was unsuccessful.

She began to become frightened and the noise was intensifying and hurt her ears.

She tried unsuccessfully to wake my father.

She said that her thought was that the noise was coming from a UFO, guess they were often in the papers at that time.

She thought of going to the window to look but was frightened and reports feeling they did not want her to look.

Eventually she picked me up and rocked me until the noise gradually faded.

When the noise stopped I stopped crying and, eventually she went back to sleep.

The next morning at breakfast she tried to tell the family about the experience but was ridiculed.

Nobody else heard anything.

However, when the paper came that day the headline story was about UFOs over Washington.

The one thing that doesn't make sense to me is the date.

Apparently the date of the big DC sighting was July 1952 when I would have been only 6 months old.

I was in my early 20s the first time Mom told me about this.

It is possible she got the dates wrong or was confusing the Langly AFB chase, which I believe also made headlines with the Washington sightings.

It also seems that the way she describes my behavior, simply crying might be more characteristic of a very young baby that of a 2 year old.

I spoke quite well by the time I was 2.

In any case when Mom told me this story again this summer and was so consistent I thought it was worth recording.
