UFO Sighting and Possible Abduction in Maryland- 1961

Depiction by SW/LITS.


A witness recalls that at the age of 10 in 1961, they were living in Kentlands, Maryland, when the witness observed a disc shaped UFO and apparently "lost time".

Now the witness claims they cannot watch a movie like "Fire in the Sky", without suffering a panic attack.

Here is that report as it was submitted to MUFON, with only minor corrections in spelling.  To see original report please click on case number.


MUFON Case #   29571
Date:    1961-11-30
City:    Kent Village - Kentlands
State:    Maryland
Shape:    Disc
Summary:    observed UFO hovering above me... lost time.

I was about 10 years old & was outside playing in the dirt (with toy horses) and the air felt cool (like early spring or early fall) & I knew that it would be dusk sometime soon but it was still daylight.

I felt like I was being watched & I stood up & instinctively looked above me. I was not afraid and just stood there looking. I observed a large disk space ship hoovering above me over our back yard.

We lived in a place that used to be farmland, a new development still in the process of building townhouses (3 per building) & most were not complete yet & there were only a few young families who had moved in. The development was also next to a golf course. So it was kind of bare & isolated to some extent. Not many people around to notice a spaceship over someones yard.

I just stood looking up at the craft. I noticed that it had 3 big lights... one was a dome light, 2 were underneath & were 2 different colored lights. Then all of a sudden I noticed that I could see through the craft ... it was a disk and the middle was similar to a car steering wheel shape (like 3 spokes with spaces between them) wherein you could see between the spokes & now I noticed that I could see the stars & sky between the spokes. I wondered how that could be.

As it was leaving, moving to my right and angling up I could see it had lighted windows along the inside spokes & outside rim.  As the craft moved swiftly up & away (at first like slow motion & then it was gone in seconds) I ran into the back door of the house to tell my mother.

The house was not well lit, my mom wasn't inside so I ran out the front door & immediately stopped in my tracks confused that it was dark outside. My mother said what I saw was not possible unless it had been the Sputnik.

I am terrified of the movie "Fire in the Sky" & I have only seen brief parts of it... I feel like I am having a panic attack. I did not have any feelings like that at the time of sighting.
