UFO was metalic, round, with a round cuppola on top of
the craft as I saw it from the TV tower. It had square
looking lights completely around the edge of the craft,
they were green, purple, and yellow, The faster the craft
flew, the faster these lights would appear to go around

of Florence SC and Darlington SC/ TV transmiting Tower."
Description & Details:
was in 1970. Mr. fields and I watched the round craft
for about an hour. Then it moved to Interstate 95, about
1/8 of a mile from the transmit tower in Florence SC.,
and it hovered over a billboard about 50 feet above my
head. We were in a car under the UFO; it did nothing to
the car instruments, so I got out of car and stood directly
under the craft for about 1 hour; this was about sunset.
Nothing happened to me physically; there was no static
electricity causing my hair to stand up or anything like
that. The craft moved toward the I-95 highway and headed
toward Highway 52 from TV Road about 40 feet above our
car and turned on Highway 52 toward Darlington, SC, still
about 40 feet above our car. We continued on to the Darlington
by-pass to the Hartsville Hwy. Halfway between Darlinton,
SC and Hartsville, SC, the craft stopped. By then, it
was about 9:00 p.m. We stood under the craft beside the
road for the next hour and 30 minutes. It was about 10:30
p.m. and the craft tilted its edge upward slightly (it
was round), toward the sky and took with amazing speed.
It did not cause any wind to blow my hair or move any
vegetation. The craft had square-looking lights on the
edge of the craft, and the faster the craft flew, the
faster these lights would appear to go around and around
the crafts edge. The lights were green, purple, and yellow.
It was a clear afternoon and night. We were in the close
presence of this craft for more than 4 hours; it was nearly
a hands on experience. I did not see who was flying the
craft. The craft stayed up in the sky a while, stopped,
then shot off in outer space at blinding speed."
sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or
was undeniably a UFO, no doubt about it whatsoever, a
clearly visible craft, no doubt. I do not think a human
could have been flying it because of the blinding speed
it took off at my last sighting of it; the G-forces would
have been entirely too great for a human to withstand."

on UFOs, before and after sighting:
I did not believe in it; I am a Southern Baptist. After
the sighting, I was a firm believer having been in its
presence for more than 4 hours at 50 feet away on a clear
day/evening. I did not read about UFO's because I did
not believe in them at the time. I did know just a little
about them, before."
I stand before God, this is a true story."
