Harry and his parents lived in Oakdale, NY in the Great Neck river valley area. It was about twilight in mid-July 1954 and Harry’s dad was finishing some yard chores. Young Harry’s mom had just called him in the house to get ready for bed. He tells us that he’d only been inside for a few minutes when his father “burst” into the house yelling, “Everyone come outside quick you have to see this!”
Harry says that when he got outside his dad grabbed him by the shoulders and turned him around abruptly. There to the right of our house up in the black night sky were three luminous disc shaped objects, traveling very slowly from East to West. Harry became so scared that he ran back into the house as fast as he could. His father came right after him. His dad picked him up saying, “…you have to see this… you may never see anything like this again in your life.”
As the two got back outside the discs had moved so that their house obscured their view. Harry’s dad moved over to their driveway to get a better look. Father and son watched and marveled at the sight that they were witnessing.
“What we saw were three pulsing discs glowing brightly and gliding through the sky, silent, silhouetting the trees that were between us and them.”
Adult Harry recalls, “… calm came over me as my father set me on the ground. As I watched the three discs we noticed something dropping out of the back of them it reminded me of the tinsel we put on our Christmas tree. The tinsel stuff was glowing as it drifted to the ground.”
Father and son finally began to relax and together they studied what they were seeing.
“I noticed that as they pulsed at the dimmest part of the pulse that you could almost see through them like they were semi-transparent.”
Harry says that a most interesting thing happened after the V Formation of UFOs were out of sight. Both his dad and he were suddenly startled by the sound of the night insects as they all had unexpectedly all started making their sounds together after the discs were gone.
“It was a very strange night to say the least and till this day I have never witnessed anything quite like it.”
