My First Sighting…. the Event no one talks about

April 18, 1962, Las Vegas,Nevada

when I was a little kid I was staying with my Grandmother who had decided to take out the trash… she came back into the apartment excited and told me to come outside and look… We went out to the courtyard and in the western sky was a huge orangish orb… it was bright but didn’t seem to give off light and it filled 2/3 of the sky… it was stationary and there was two helicopters facing it, just hovering in place, one to the right and another to the left… I saw a third peek out from behind it on the left and assume there was at least a fourth out of sight… We watched it for several minutes… it didn’t move an inch… then two fighter jets appeared from the northeast… the direction of Nellis AFB… and circled it… several more jets appeared heading towards it and it just took off like a shot to the north…

I remembered it all my life but never thought of it as something more than a weird experience until one day, years ago I Googled it and discovered it was a major sighting… but I was too busy to read all the stuff there was about it… a few months later I sat down to check it all and all I could find were a few mentions and a picture of the news paper clipping,,, and all it said was there was a fireball that streaked across the sky and may have burned up in the desert…

There is little or no info in this…. yet I remember everyone talking about it the next few days… all saw what my grandmother and I saw…

It makes me believe that the lack of info says more about a sighting than hundreds of pieces of ‘proof’….
