Object Emitted Beams

Object Emitted Beams

Date: January 3, 1956

Location: Petaluma, CA

Objects were several thousand feet in altitude and bounced around the sky basically overhead.

I was 17 years old at the time.

The Petaluma Argus Courier Newspaper came out with the event the next day with my name, I was ridiculed for years.

Several months later I received a call from a control tower operator in Oakland who would not tell me his name but verified what I saw was viewed on radar at the center.

The objects were circular in shape and the Sun reflected off the material.

I and my 2 class mates were working in a Venetian blind company just outside of town when the event occurred.

We were all in our teens.

Subsequently I had observed other phenomenon throughout the years.

My girlfriend and I, eventually my wife, were parked on a hill overlooking the Burbank Airport one summer night in around March of 1956.

A circular object floated over our heads and just sat there.

We were sitting in a convertible and just looked up and saw a huge circular object with several lights underneath.

It hovered there for about 20 minutes.

Planes were overhead above the object.

Eventually it sped off over the Burbank mountains.

Soon after marriage driving from Burbank to our new home in Orange, CA at about 2 a.m., we were tracked by a bright green ball type object that followed us over the orange groves until we reached out home.

Then next day the papers were full of sightings over El Toro Marine base nearby.

Several years later while living in Villa Park, CA I was awakened after midnight with what sounded like rocks on the roof.

Then there was a brilliant white/blue light that came from our patio and lit up our room.

I ran outside to the patio and the light was not there.

I looked up and saw an object in the western sky that appeared to retract a bright light from beneath, like airplane landing lights, and up into the object.

It then sped off towards the ocean.

The following night I saw a bright light streak across the sky from North to South.

Subsequently I was approached by a person outside of Reno, Nevada and had several years of education regarding UFOs.

I met with Linda Moulton Howe in Oceanside, CA about 5 or 6 years ago, I related the story to her.

We communicated for a while and then lost contact.

Professor Hynek and his assistant was also in contact with me regarding this person.

But when I sent a tape recording to Hynek and the audio was completely erased including the emulsion, Hynek thought it best to cut off communications with me.

That was the last time I heard from him.

The year was about 1975 when I lived in Villa Park, CA.

The original tape from the interview also disappeared from my safe.

I decided to just forget the whole thing.
