When I was 6 years old, my family moved to the small town of Watonga, Ok. Our home was near the edge of town which made it an ideal location for a small boy to play outside.
During our second summer in Watonga, I was playing in the garden of a friend of my mother. The area offered a sweeping vista to the west. After decades the memory remains he same.
I remember looking at the house next to the garden, which was east. Suddenly I heard the rumble of thunder and as I turned to the noise, I saw a single, oval shaped, boiling black cloud approximately 30 degrees above the horizon. There were absolutely no other clouds in the sky except for that one.
The next thing I could remember, I was standing in the doorway of my room. It was night and I was looking across the room to the only window. Standing outside was a short, strange looking creature. It had on a suit of some kind or maybe a uniform.
Suddenly it was morning and my mother was telling me it was time to get up. With nothing to compare the incident to, I promptly forgot about it.
The time was now 1986 and I was working as a nurse in Oklahoma City. Driving each morning to work, it was always dark. It was about 5 am, and I was on the south side of the town of Calumet, near Oklahoma City when I noticed a light in the sky moving towards me.
I stopped my car and stepped out on the side of the deserted highway. The light quickly approached and I could tell it was three lights instead of one. The round lights were arranged in a triangle pattern, and as the triangle passed over me I could see a triangle shaped craft against the star-field of the early morning sky.
Whatever it was made absolutely no sound as it continued to fly towards the north. Suddenly I recalled my childhood experience and the thought occurred to me that maybe these two incidents were somehow related.
Of course, there is no way I can currently prove that the two are related. But somewhere deep inside of me I know it was more than just coincidence.
