Date of Event / Case File: 06/08/1984
Name of Witness: Deanna

Due to the age of the sighting, and lack of visual evidence, the case is added here without scrutiny, and used for reference and archival purposes.  

Witness Testimony

“I don’t remember the exact date, but I know that it was in the early 1980s, around 10:30 – 11 pm during the summer.

My friend, Kim and I were outside lying on our backs looking at the stars & talking. There was a street light on in front of the house next door to us, so it was not pitch dark at all, when all of a sudden and seemed to be out of nowhere we saw a VERY LARGE (bigger than a car) dark triangle-shaped craft with bright blue lights underneath that was directly overhead, completely silent, and just above the tree top.

We were so shocked and surprised at what we were seeing, when all of a sudden at break-neck speed, it zipped away towards the back of the house with a movement that reminded me of a boomerang.We ran to the backyard, which we never went back there at dark but we wanted to see it again, however it was completely gone.

Our hearts were pounding and we kept asking each other what was that? did you see that? did you see how fast it took off? did you hear anything? We didn’t tell anyone because we figured they wouldn’t believe us. Over the years, I have only told 5 people about that experience.”


Due to the amount of time that has elapsed since the event, and the lack of visual evidence, this case holds no “conclusion” and is archived here for reference or for possible future corroborating witness testimony.
