Howdy from Montana,
I am sure you probably already perhaps know of me as I am one of those individuals who comments all the time on various articles and stories on the UFO Chronicles website. I live in Helena, Montana. My family has been here in Montana Territory and Montana since 1870.
The reason I am writing you today is that I have a UFO experience to talk/tell you about although it happened to my grandfather who passed in 1985 and my two aunts, ( his daughters and my mothers older sisters ). My two aunts are still alive but are really up there in their 90's now. However, they are as sharp as they ever were. If you want to call any Norwegian farm girls "sharp". LOL! Uff da, my mother would smack me for that comment! I was never going to report this experience or tell anyone else except perhaps other family members. For the usual reasons. I need to be believed and I don't want to be thought of as a nut or a "Conspiracy Theorist" or any of those labels.
What happened to my grandfather ( who was born in 1886, by the way and lived to be 99. ) and my two aunts happened here in Montana in 1957. What I can tell you is exactly what they have told me over the years about this sighting ever since I was tiny kid. Make of it what you will, but I think it was pretty dang extraordinary for the time period.
They were living in Billings, Montana at the time and decided to take grandpa for a ride out towards Red Lodge but more between the Beartooth Mtns and the Pryor Mtn ranges. Everything was going along fine and they were enjoying the empty road and beautiful scenery. I think it was May or June but I would have to talk to my aunts and make sure, or even you could talk to them. I'm sure they would tell you whatever they could about this experience. They were in the valley between these two mtn ranges and all of the sudden they saw out of the front of the windscreen a very large, silvery coloured cigar or tube shaped object that had many portholes all along it's length. It was huge they said and had no wings and made no sound. The day was cloudless but this craft had a 'cloud' of some sort in FRONT of it. Not behind it like you would think.
The 'cloud' was of a very odd colour and it was always in front of this craft no matter which way it turned or went. They got out of the car to see this thing and could really see the portholes and 'cloud' thing much better. At least, that's what they thought they were. Still no perceptible noise. They watched this craft for a while as it cruised many miles in a very short time period from near the Beartooth Mtns very quickly to the Pryor Mtn Range. When it got to a certain spot over the Pryor Mountains, it simply stopped and hovered for a bit, then slowly descended until it could be seen no more. It landed like maybe a helicopter would, the whole cigar shaped craft just descending and likely either landing somewhere up in the Pryor's or settling just above the ground. They don't know.
The 'cloud' thing was always right in front of it the whole time and even as it descended the 'cloud' stayed right in the front of the craft. Naturally, they could hardly believe what they had just witnessed and finally got back in the car after waiting a bit to see if the craft would rise back up. I'm not sure if there was missing time during this sighting or not but I highly suspect that there was. I have my reasons for believing that. They didn't mention any problems with the car or anything either but I think they were all so transfixed by what they were seeing that they wouldn't have noticed if a bison had come right over and got up on the hood of the car!
I still ask them about this experience periodically and it never changes. The awe in my two aunts' voices tells me enough. They saw something very extraordinary and it has affected them as it did my grandfather for the rest of their lives. My two aunts still talk about it to this day although they are really getting up in age and I'm afraid of losing them any time here. Their names are Xxxx Xxxxxx-Xxxxxxx and Xxxxxx Xxxxxx-Xxxxxxx and they now live in Las Vegas, NV together. They like to gamble. LOL! But, they are getting a bit too old for all of that. I think they could likely tell more about this experience if they were asked about it in the right way and by the right person.
Personally, I think this is an important early case of a UFO sighting and I think it should be in the records or books or whatever. That, however, is not my decision. I can only tell you second hand what they told me. It is the truth and I would put my life on the line for my two aunts and their honesty. These ladies and my grandfather could never be dishonest in any way. What they saw is what they saw. I'm guessing that either no one else ever saw this thing or if they did back then, they didn't come forward. But, neither did my grandfather and two aunts.
So, where do we go from here? I can sure hook you up with my two aunts if you'd like to speak with them about this. It might be a good idea, too. I'm getting up there in age too and have some terminal health problems so I felt that if I was ever going to report this case, I better do it now. I have great faith in you Frank, and that is why I decided to report it to you.
If you need or want to get a hold of me, I can be reached here in Helena, Montana at XXX-XXX-XXXX. My email you have, obviously. Let me know if I need to do anything more or whatever. Put you in touch with my two aunts or whatever you deem appropriate in this case. Thanks for listening and I feel much better getting this off my mind and chest after all these years of living with it. Take care and hope to hear from you even if it's just a 'thank you' email. I appreciate it and I know my two aunts would and will too. Grandpa Xxxxxx too, even though he has passed.
