I was returning home around 8 pm in december 1974. i got out of the car and noticed a pulsating orb about the size of a full moon. it was totally silent. shortly a second orb joined the first and then a third. the three pulsating orbs just hovered in the sky in a triangular formation above me at about a 45 degree angle above the horizon.. in a short time one of the orbs shot straight upward at unbelievable speed. if it was piloted, no pilot could survive those g forces. the second and third orbs shot upward shortly after the first. i definitely felt these objects were under intelligent control as their movements were not random appearing coordinated. i was a school administrator in the county and told no one except my wife. i am retired now and wanted to make a record of this before i die. this sighting did not disturb me but filled me with wonderment and awe.
