Back in 1978, it was new years eve and soon to be 1979. My mate knocked on for me and when walking out of my gate I looked up and a large object was moving very slowly across the sky with what looked like fire from the rear. I asked my mate “what’s that” and he said “don’t know it was there before I knocked on” so we stood watching it unable to believe what we were seeing and then in a flash it seemed to accelerate and gone.
The next day I asked my dad if any plains had come down then told him what we had seen. He said “new years drinking” but it was before a single drink. Anyway next day in the local paper lots of people had reported a UFO sighting but then nothing more was said. After that I really do think we are not on our own and if we are its such a waste of space don’t you think. – Jim
