Summary:    A pool table shaped craft flew just above the tree tops in front of our car.

I believe it was just before christmas. It would have been in the mid 1970's. I was born in 1966, this happened when I was around 8-10 yrs old.

My brother in law was driving his wife (my sister who was 20 when I was born) and myself to Sharon Pa. We were headed to a department store to go shopping. I was in the back seat looking out the right side window and saw some lights and a craft just over the trees about 2 tenths of a mile away. (At that age I had no idea about acceptable flight heights of crafts to really know that it shouldnt have been permitted to fly that low.) I didnt want to be laughed at by saying look a ufo, but as it got a little closer it was obious it wasnt a plane. I said LOOK A UFO!!! At first they chuckled and said yea uhuh, 10 seconds later they were agreeing with me! The entire sighting didnt last over 3 minutes.

I have watched ufo shows for a long time and have never heard my craft explained, nor do I think your choices on this page covers it either, thats why I checked other. The craft was shaped like a pool table, it was about 40 feet long by 20 feet wide it was 10 feet high. Had 6 lights on the bottom, where the pockets would be on a pool table. The craft was black, metal looking, it flew long ways, it had a window in the side of the craft that went top to bottom. There was a control panel visible but no one was seen in the window.

The craft flew across the highway just in front of our car and stopped over a trailer park that was right beside the highway. It tilted down over a trsiler and the bottom was 10 to 15 feet from the top of the trailer.

I remember that it was just getting dark and there were many headlights coming west and anybody driving would have seen it but as I recall nobody pulled over or stopped, neither did we! I couldnt believe my brother in law kept driving!! But he did.

I watched it from the right side, to flying in front of us and watching out the back window as we kept driving. I saw all sides of the craft.

I am guessing on the year, I was a child, but I do know it was in the mid 70's.

Has anyone ever described a craft such as this? Or reported on this same encounter?

My sister has since passed away. When I was in my early 20's I stopped to see my brother in law to ask him about that night. All he remembered was lights in the sky. I was greatly dissapointed, I had hoped he would have recalled some of the details.

I am not a good artist but I would be happy to describe it to an artist and share it with your agency.
The movements of the craft was in a straight line just as an airplane would fly, there was no up down just a straight flight path to the top of the trailer. Our viewing ended as we continued driving the craft was still above the trailer as we left the viewing range.

when I was older I drove down that road again to see what I remembered, and sure enough, there was still a trailer park right next to the highway.

If you may recall, there was a famous ufo encounter back in 2007 I believe in Girard Ohio when A policeman had a sighting and chased a craft till his car died. Mt sighting was on the outskirts of that town, roughly 5 air miles from his sighting.


Note:  I do not recall having read a report of this particular sighting but if someone did, please report it now.

To answer the witness' question, many witnesses have seen the same type rectangular objects. -SW
