UFO Sighting Iowa 1965
One night in in 1965 I was home from college for the summer and was driving around with some friends. We were listening to station KOMA in Oklahoma and it was clear as a bell. Suddenly, my radio went dead and my engine started acting like it wanted to shut off-somehow it kept going, but in a jerky way.
We noticed something moving over our heads and when we came to the bottom of the hill, a triangular-shaped object was across the street and hovering above an old hatchery building. This area was quite dark.
I suggested we go up the hill and I no sooner said it than the ‘saucer’ also darted up the hill! It waited for us again and I suggested that we drive out towards the town dump. Then it headed in that direction!
My friends were really scared and locked their doors. I turned around at the dump and decided we had better get back to town. Just as I was getting ready to turn to go back into town, it sat down on the railroad tracks right across from us and then-poof!-up into the air and disappeared completely!
We were all scared to death and agreed that none of us would talk about it again. No one did.
