"I have been aware of 'Flying Saucers,' UFOs, and these unexplained vehicles in the sky, in the early 60's. My father was on his way to work one afternoon following a lunch break at home in Woodward, Iowa. We lived very close to his studio and so off to work he went in his pickup truck. About a quarter of a mile from home he slowed his truck to check the railroad tracks as he began a slight incline and came to a stop. In front of him was an absolute huge lenticular ship, with windows extending from left to right, the entire width of the ship. It flew right over him as he waited at the tracks, with people looking out through these windows. This ship has cast a shadow over the entire area surrounding him and continued on its way without sound over our house in like manner. Of course I was inside, at home and did not view it, probably still eating lunch as my father returned home directly with this experience. I have never seen him so excited, not even when a tornado was ripping its path near our neighborhood in our years living in tornado alley. The statement that most stuck in mind was the 'people' he had seen in the windows, as far as he could tell they were Human, looking out of the windows from such a huge vessel that he though had to be a quarter of a mile across."
