Warminster 1967/Ohio 1948

Warminster and it is autumn of 1967. 35 skywatchers
pulled off the highway between the villages of Chittern
and Shrewton and saw:

".... a huge object in a blue sky unsullied by cloud. Here
was a prime example of a daytime UFO in all its magnificent
might, silhouetted against an azure backcloth in the heavens.
It was a sober grey in colour, resembling base gunmetal, until
the sun shone on its circular structure, surmounted by a hemi-
spherical dome or turret. Then it blazed with silvery brilliance,
sparkled with gem-like magic. To our gaze, it was the size of a
small moon....

".... temporary absentees missed the dramatic disappearance of the
slightly tilted aeroform. One moment, boldly and brazenly, it was
there. The next, with no tell-tale fading of outlines, it was gone!
Naturally we all concluded that it had moved off at such a
prodigious rate that it had deceived our eyes.... Some three minutes

".....a shriek came from a female watcher. "Good God! Look what's
happening. It can't be true."

"We..... saw the same spectacular sky chariot materializing on the
very same ble spot from which it had vanished. This beautiful and
out-of-this-world scene almost beggars description in our limited
terminology....... Imagine a bevy of industrious spiders busily
billowing out the silvery strands of glistening gossamer that
fashion their nests or cobwebs; or imagine shining silkworms
churning out their choicely delicate threads of silk into lusterous
coccoons. Speed up this enchanging natural process a million times
and magnify these superb domestic insects in action accordingly, and
it gives some clumsily-worded impression.........

"Gradually,the silver-white filaments were interlacing, interweaving
and interlocking, spinning speedily from side to side or bobbing up
and down like shuttles on a weaver's loom. It took another three
minutes or so before each intricate piece was launched back into the
jigsaw, resolving themselves into the apparently metallic shape of
the enormous flying sorcerer....."

sightings in Ohio &tc.

1947       September 23 After a conference between personnel of the
           Air Insitute of Technology, Intelligence, T-2 Office, the
           Chief of the Engineering Division, & parts of Division T-3,
           Lt.Gen. Nathan F Twining reported on September 23 1947 that
           these "flying discs" were "real and not visionary and
           ficticious." They concluded that: "There are objects
           probably approximating the shape of a disc.."circular or
           elliptical in shape, flat on bottom and domes on top..."
