At around 7pm a woman at home with her two children noticed that her dog went completely crazy in the house. It was barking and running from room to room and looking out the windows. The area is in a very country setting with woods all around and at this time had very few houses on the road. The woman suspected that there was a prowler outside and put on all the house lights to scare a person off. She then brought the dog outside to secure it as they were leaving to go to a middle school basketball game.
The woman and her children got into their car and started it and then the woman and one of her children saw a craft to the left side of their house about 50 yards away and at tree top level. The woman stated “wow look at that, I never saw plane fly that low.” They looked like four planes flying in perfect formation with red lights. The object was described as 4 red lights on each corner of a huge diamond shaped craft .The children stated “wow they are really low”. The woman rolled down the window to hear the planes and there was no sound at all and the craft just hovered. The woman was now very scared and started to drive out of her drive way to leave for the school. As she started to leave her driveway the craft rotated on its axis. As the craft rotated she could she other lights that ran along one of the edges (red orange and yellow). The woman was very scared now and was fearful that it was chasing her.
As they drove down Mendall Rd it started to follow their car. After a little while, they lost sight of the craft and the woman was relieved that the craft was final gone. As they approach the Mendall Rd & Perry Hill Rd intersection they could see the craft again hovering lower directly across the street from the intersection. Now they could get a clear view of the object and the size was overwhelming. The woman became very frightened again and as they took the left onto Perry Hill Rd the craft stated to again very slowly towards the West in the direction of New Bedford Ma. When they reached the intersection of Main St and Perry Hill Rd. they could see the craft over New Bedford and then they turned to go the school. They never sighted it after that point but the woman was so shaken up that when they arrived at the school she and the children ran as fast as they could into the gym.
Two days after the sighting the woman’s husband called the New Bedford Airport to see if anything was sighted. The airport said they did not have any confirmation but many other people called them asking about the craft too. The airport advised the husband to call Otis Air Force base in Falmouth MA. The husband did and the Air force base stated that they had nothing in the air at that time. Later in the week they had a knock on the door and two people arrived with Air Force badges and were driving a vehicle with military plane but dress in plain clothes. They advised that they were conducting an investigation into the UFO sighting and it was going into Project Bluebook (of course the family was not aware that this Project was officially closed in 1969 a whole 15 years before their sighting). The two officials interviewed all three family members together and then all three individually. They had them draw a sketch of the object and using paint chip cards (similar to the paint cards at home improvement stores) to find the exact color of the lights seen. After the interviews they went into the card to retrace the route and used a stop watch to time the intervals between every sighting during the trip they took. At one put they stopped at high tension lines that cross Mendall Rd and took measurements. At this point the Air Force officials stated “UFO’s tend to follow high tension lines”. They continued the trip and then concluded the visit by telling them they would be in touch; however the Air force never followed up with the family.
After the sighting the family learned of other people that saw the same craft including a father and daughter that saw the same object the same night hovering over the old Acushnet Airport. They stated that “it hovered over them for a short time and then shot off at an incredible speed.” (Source interview with eyewitnesses)
I saw multiple ufos On the Border of. Rochester & acushenet Massachusetts. Driving thru back roads and it was flying too low to be any plane or helicopter and the way it was flying and moving around there was no way it was a plane or anything. I was so shocked because I've always believed but it was just a shocking sight. (Submitted by witness to this website)
