APRIL 20, 1965, ORLANDO, FLORIDA, USA, A CHILD:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In 2005, someone reported on the web about a 15 minutes sighting in Orlando, California, USA:

AS A 6TH GRADER I SAW THIS CRAFT HOVER OVER ME, AND MAKE PLANNED AND EVASIVE MANUVERS AND INCREDIBLE SPEED.

I WAS IN 6TH GRADE THIS YEAR. I RODE MY BICYCLE TO A NEIBOURHOOD 5 AND DIME STORE. ON THE WAY TO THE STORE I HAD SEEN SOMETHING IN THE SKY BUT DIDNT IT DIDNT REALLY CATCH MY INTEREST. ON THE WAY BACK IT WAS ABOUT DUSK. I SAW A CRAFT THAT WAS IN THE EAST. IT WAS LOW TO GROUND I'D SAY 1000' FEET UP OR SO. AS WHERE IT WAS AT THE TIME WAS IN THE FLIGHT PATH OF A LOCAL SMALL AIRPORT, SEVERAL TIMES AS I WATCHED IT A SMALL PLANE, PIPER CUB WOULD APPROACH AND THE CRAFT WOULD DECEND TO A ALTITUDE THAT PUT IT TOO LOW FOR ME TO SEE IT, AS IF BEHIND TREE LINES. AFTER THE PLANE PASSED IT ROSE AGAIN AND SLOWLY MADE ITS WAY TOWARDS MY DIRECTION. I WAS RIDING MY BIKE BACK FROM THE STORE DURING THIS TIME. I HAD STOPPED MY BIKE IN THE ROAD,AS IT WAS A RESIDENTIAL ROAD AND NOT BUSY. THE CRAFT CAME TO WHERE I WAS AND HOVERED OVER ME FOR QUITE SOME TIME. AT THIS TIME IT WAS NO MORE THAN A BASEBALL FIELD IN HEIGHT ABOVE ME.AS I LOOKED AT IT, IT APPEARED TO BE METALLIC, AND HAD LIGHTS AROUND THE EDGE. I CAN NOT REMEMBER NOW IF THE LIGHTS WERE SPINNING OR NOT, BUT I DONT BELEIVE SO. WHAT STRUCK ME WAS THAT THE DOME PART OF THE CRAFT SEEMED TO HAVE SOME SORT OF WINDOW. I SAY SOME SORT, BECAUSE THEY SEEMED METALLIC BUT SOMEWHAT TRANSPARENT. I COULDN'T SEE INSIDE BUT COULD SEE LIGHT AS IF A LITE INERIOR AND THE SILOUETTE OF SOME BEING. IF I WAS TO SAY WHAT IT APPEARED LIKE IN TODAYS STANDARD, I WOULD SAY ALMOST LIKE LOOKING THROUGH A WINDOW WITH METALLIC WINDOW TINT ON IT. AS I WATCHED IT I THOUGHT TO MYSELF " IF ONLY LARRY, A FRIEND OF MINE WHO LIVED A BLOCK DOWN THE ROAD COULD SEE IT. I GOT ON MY BIKE AND STARTED RIDING TOWARDS HIS HOUSE. AS I APPROACHED I HEARD HIM YELLING AS HE CAME OUTSIDE TO HIS BROTHER LLOYD TO COME OUTSIDE, THAT THERE WAS A FLYING SAUCER OUTSIDE. HE TOLD ME THAT ANOTHER FRIEND WHO LIVED A COUPLE BLOCKS AWAY SAW IT WHILE CLOSING A WINDOW AND CALLED HIM TO TELL HIM ABOUT IT. ALSO SEVERAL OTHER PEOPLE AROUND LARRY'S HOUSE CAME OUT ALSO. THEY HEARD THE COMMOTION AND ALSO SAID THAT THEY HAD ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS. WE WATCHED IT FOR SEVERAL MORE MINUTES AS IT MOVED FROM EAST TO WEST AND BACK AS IF SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING OR LOOKING AT SOMETHING. AT THIS POINT THE SKY WAS PRETTY DARK AND THE MOON WAS FULL IN THE LOW EASTERN SKY. THE CRAFT MADE A FAST TRACK UPWARD AND TOWARDS THE WEST, THEN MADE A INSTANT TURN EAST AND WITHIN A SPAN OF LESS THAN A COUPLE SECONDS AT MOST IT WAS ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE HORIZON FROM EAST TO WEST AND OUT OF SITE. I WILL SAY THAT WHERE I LIVE AT THE TIME WAS JUST OUTSIDE OF WHAT WAS THE ORLANDO AIRFORCE BASE. WHICH LATER BECAME ORLANDO NAVAL BASE. IT COULD HAVE BEEN SOME MILITARY EXPERIMENT, BUT I HAD NEVER AND TO THIS DATE, STILL HAVE NOT SEEN ANYTHING THAT MOVED THAT FAST, TURNED ON A DIME AND DISAPPEARED SO QUICKLY. ALSO, I HAD SEEN BLIMPS IT WAS NOT ONE OF THESE. IT NEVER HAD ANY SOUND THAT IT MADE. EVEN WHEN IT LEFT SO FAST. I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT BROKE THE SOUND BARRIOR, BUT NO BOOM WAS HEARD OR THE SOUND OF AIR DISTURBANCE.ANOTHER THING THAT AFTER THE FACT AND AS I GOT OLDER IS THAT I NEVER FELT ANY FEAR, EVEN THOUGH I GOT THE IMPRESSION THAT IT WAS WATCHING ME AS IT HOVERED ABOVE ME. I THINK I USED THE BASEBALL FIELD AS A REFERENCE IN HEIGHT AS THAT I HAD PLAY BASEBALL AT AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL I ATTENDED AT A TIME AND THAT WAS A COMPARISON I COULD MAKE AT MY AGE.

NUFORC notes that the witness indicates that the date of sighting is approximate.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Orlando, Florida, on April 20, 1965, at dusk, the young witness was riding his bicycle home from a store when he spotted a craft to the east and low to the ground at about 1,000 feet up or so. As he watched fascinated, a small piper aircraft would approach the craft, which would then descend low beyond the witness view. After the plane passed it slowly rose and then made its way towards the witness. The craft came over to his location and hovered over him. As he looked at the craft it appeared to be metallic and had lights around the edge. He saw struck by a domed section of the craft that seemed to have some sort of window, which seemed to be metallic but transparent in nature. He couldn't see inside it, but could see light inside and the silhouette of what appeared to be a "being" or figure. The witness thought of his friends which lived nearby and began riding towards their house about a block away. As he approached his friend's house he heard him yelling for his brother Lloyd to come out and see. Several other neighbors also heard the commotion and stepped out to see the craft. Moments later it made a sudden turn and disappeared almost instantaneously upwards and towards the west.

Albert Rosales indicates as source NUFORC.
