  1. I lived on Beverly then & remember my family watching it from my family home on the top of Hillside Ave., in the Rile Side section of Beverly. We watched it hover above I think was the city of Salem, Mass. It was amazing, with what looked like several Windows across in a line. It just stood still & then seemed to go both ahead & backwards. When I went to work the next day, several other people claimed to have seen the same thing.

    • We saw one while playing baseball at the park st ballfield next to city garage I believe it was early summer just getting dark

    • Jean, I am a part of a journalism class that is building a story on this event. Is this regarding April 22, 1966? Do you still live near by, and if so would you be interested in sharing information on it?

  2. It was too low in the sky for an airplane & no aireplane could fly that low & keep so quiet & still. It was very large.
