Full Description & Details

The Odessa Event

"100 ft diameter disk shape, dome top. The color was stainless steel. It made no sound.

I had worked real hard that day for the state highway dept. and I was tired, so I took a nap when I got home. This was a clear summer day, and all the events occurred in the daylight. My grandmother lived in the southwest part of the city of Odessa. As I was taking a nap, she called my wife. She said, have Stanley go out and look, because there is a UFO heading your way. I lived west of town out in the country. There weren't many houses out there at that time. When I awoke, I sat and thought about it a minute, and thought my grandmother is very serious. She doesn't tease. I decided to get up and go outside and look for the UFO. First, I looked toward town and saw nothing, which would have been back toward the east. Then I turned and looked toward the north and south and saw nothing. When I turned and looked toward the west, there it was. Above the radio tower, about 1 mile from my house. My wife and I got very excited, because we knew it was probably an alien ship. It made no sound. [And, as the witness added later, there was no rotation of the UFO.] About this time, my brother in law and big sister who lived about 2 streets over, came flying around the corner in their car. They were hollering out of their window as they approached, saying "do you see it, do you see it?". When they got out of their car, of course all four of us were excited, and I don't remember what we said at the moment. We had no camera and they had no camera, and I ran to the neighbors house to borrow a camera and they weren't home. Then as we watched it, we were all amazed and I said, wait a minute, I think that's a radio tower! So I went to my car, I turned the radio on and started scanning all of the channels. Then in our amazement, we came across a station, and my wife said it was KBZB, to the best of her memory. But of course you have to realize this was about 32 years ago. We were really shocked when we heard the disc jockey saying that they had a UFO above their radio tower causing static. So we kept listening to his reports and watching the UFO, and I decided to go inside and look up the phone number of that radio station. I did get the disc jockey, and I don't remember his name. I did ask him if his radio tower was out on west university and he said, yes that's our radio tower. I said, we're looking at the UFO that you're talking about. I don't remember what else I said at the moment, but in a little while, I hung up and went back outside with everybody else. Already the UFO had been over the tower about 20 to 25 minutes. My brother-in-law and I started having the discussion of driving to the UFO, which was about 1 mile from my house. So we tried getting to the tower by going down different dirt roads and couldn't reach it from that direction. So we drove to the main highway, which is west University and found a road which led to a little road which goes to the radio tower. Whether or not the UFO would have interfered with the electric system of the car, I do not know because we killed the car and stopped at the beginning of the little road that led to the UFO. We were probably about a half mile, maybe a little farther, from the UFO. The color of the UFO was a stainless steel. My brother-in-law and I sat there and started having the discussion of whether or not to drive up to the UFO, which we could have done. We actually decided not to drive under the UFO, because we thought we might get a flight we did not want. I don't recall what we said during the time we sat there but gradually, the UFO moved from the radio tower to the north, it made a 90-degree turn and drifted off toward the west, out of sight. We drove back to my house and they were no longer reporting the UFO on the radio station. I called the radio station again and got the same disc jockey and said, why did you stop reporting about the UFO, and he said that the government told them to shut it down or lose their license. He said, I will tell you something else though. Our electrician went out there to check on why we were having static, and when he got back, he was so excited and disturbed that we had to take him to the hospital to get him a hypo to calm him down. He said there were hyroglyphics on the bottom of the ufo. So I hung up after that discussion and later on, I called him back one more time and he said one of the t.v. stations had pictures of a ufo above the street lights on West University at night and the government confiscated their pictures and told them to be quiet or lose their license. He said that he didn't want to talk about it anymore, because he was afraid he would get in trouble. This completes my version the best I remember of this event, and it is the truth. There were five witness, and I have thier names and occupations on the original report."

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

"No, this was a UFO. I would be willing to take truth serum or a lie detector if it were needed. Besides, I am a Christian."

Witness Background:

"Singer song writer, Worked for State Highway department at time of sighting."

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting:

"Barely knew anything about them. I was not interested at all. Now, I realize GOD made more than just us."
