- (My thanks to Paul for sharing this story. -JR)
- When I was younger my Grandfather told me a story about
an object that would play havoc with some of the local ranchers. In the
early to mid-thirtys, a growing number of local ranchers had to run for
there lives because of the flying objects that would chase them. Usually
the only way they would get away was to bail off their horse into a ditch.
- My Grandfather grew up in a little town called Glenwood,
Washington when he came in sight of one of these objects. These are his
own words of what happened....
- "I was heading east to the Kuhnhausen house to help
out in the fields. The route that I chose took me through some trees and
over a couple of ridges and when I got to the second ridge, I suddenly
noticed that it was quiet - I mean no wind, no birds, no nothing! That
is when a shadow came over me blocking the sun out entirely! I looked up
into the sky to see a huge rectangular object above. What struck me the
most was the smaller rectangle on the bottom that would reflect the ground
like a mirror. The object slowed down and three little (balls of) lights
came out of a little opening beside the large mirror. They made a beeline
straight for me!
- By this time, I was so scared that I had a hard time
moving. I got myself turned around and started to run and I noticed that
I couldn't seem to move very fast - almost like I was running on a sponge;
my feet would move but everything else felt like I was being pulled backwards.
At that time those little lights shot by my head and around a tree and
up out of sight. Right when they did that I could move again and that's
what I did! I did not stop until I was in the root cellar under my house.
I never took that route again!"
- My grandfather passed away several years ago but I wrote
this all down just before he died. I have heard other stories from different
people about this object and almost all of them desribe the UFO almost
exactly the same.
- My grandfather said that the object had to be at least
a mile long and a half mile wide by its position to the mountains and by
the shadow that it cast. I have found about ten to twelve other people
who have seen it or know of a person who has.
- Most of the other stories that I have heard were of people
being chased by little balls of light, in some cases for miles! At one
point nobody even wanted to leave their house because of fear they would
- I do hope you can use this information in the future.
I figured that you, of all people, would appreciate a good and strange
story from the past.
- Thanks for your program!
