I guess some things take a while before you want to divulge information on something like ufos. We've all heard the remarks that anyone saying they've seen a ufo, is a place setting short of a full picnic. Well, so be it.
In the summer of 1980, two friends of mine and I were on a cross-country trip. We started out from Maryland heading to the west coast, camping the entire trip, except for one exception. When we arrived in Wyoming that evening, we had realized that the temperature in the mountains at 12,000 feet, was coming on strong so we pulled over in a magnificent parking look-out. This would give us the perfect opportunity to bundle up and have a quick sandwich before arriving a our next destination, Cody, Wyoming.
From here, the view of the valley between the Big Horns was breathtaking, to say the least. Dusk nearly over, turned into a crisp clear night sky. Being from the east coast, you just can't be anything but overwhelmed, with the amount of stars you can see from this altitude.
Just as we are looking at the sky telling other how amazing, literally pointing out constellations, etc., we notice a bright light far in the horizon, moving very strangely across the sky in front of us. It was sort of like the motion of a squid, forward and stopping, forward and stopping. This went on for just a minute or so.
At that moment, our trip out west, would stay etched in my mind for twenty-nine years. Just all three of us are raising our arms, talking about this object that is about two or three times the size of any stars around, it stops at what appears to us now at eye level in the distance.
All of a sudden the horizon lights up as bright as magnesium paper they used to burn in science class. I mean so bright that you could barely look at very long. That didn't make any difference, because just as my brain was trying to comprehend the glowing disc shape within the bright light, there was a sizzling sound and the thing turned more orange now than white.
It almost felt electrical for a moment. The object shot off, away from us at a speed that I can only describe as follows. It was like seeing something as large as a 747, then a piper cub, and then a soccer ball. Just disappearing before you could even say any obscenity you want. Fantastic!!! Like watching a flaming arrow vanish into the stars at about a 45 degree angle. If you could have seen our faces; unfortunately, long before the technology we have today, none of us was prepared with any visual aids. I would like to say at this point, that I would be prepared to testify about anything I've stated thus far. There's more to tell but that's enough for now.
Thank you for your time.
