Whirring From Far Away

Whirring From Far Away

Date: August 12, 1947

Location: Saranac Lake, NY

I was about 4 years old, was at our cabin in the Adirondacks and several neighbors were visiting us as we just arrived for our summer vacation.

As I was young I was put to bed earlier but was listening to the adults talking in the living room.

We had no electricity or running water so when I wanted to go to the toilet which was an outhouse in the corner of the shed my father escorted me to the shed and went back inside the cabin door to get away from the mosquitoes where he could still see the shed.

While in the outhouse every minute or so I could hear a whirring from far away getting nearer then going away.

When I ran back inside the cabin and told my father he said it was probably just an owl or other creature.

A few minutes later all the adults were outside the back door as someone had gone to the outhouse and saw this disk shaped object which seemed to be slightly lit up and making a whirring sound coming into view from the South, passing almost overhead and disappearing around Baker Mountain.

I snuck out and actually saw one.

One passed every minute or so.

Before I got caught and was sent back in.

We had an old battery radio and when listening to the local news.

The next day we heard several reports of the same sighting from the village.
