sighting: I was 8 years old and playing in the front yard of my home in Bogalusa with three playmates, approximately the same age. We were pretending we were the Monkees singing group that was so popular on tv then. It was dark and our house was on a deserted road in the countryside leading to the Pearl River which separates Louisiana from Mississippi on the easternmost side. In the midst of our playing, my friend Timothy Dixon became startled by the UFO appearing in the near western sky. He pointed and we all saw the thing. Oblong shaped, hovering fairly unsteadily, about 50 yards away from us and about the same distance up in the sky. It had lights circling the midsection, blinking red, green and possibly blue. We could see windows, or maybe portholes above the lights. I had the feeling the lights were "running" around the center section. The blinking effect could've been all that it was. We were scared and went in to get my dad to check it out. It was still there and dad didn't know what to make of it. He called the police as my mom verified the sighting as well. The object hovered all through the phone call allowing us all to view it for an extraordinarily long time. After he reported it, we got in the car to leave as fast as we could, but the car wouldn't start. It took several tries to get the engine to work and everyone was very relieved when it did. We never received a police followup of what it could have been, nor did it ever make the newspaper in our small town. 6 people saw it, however, including two adults, and no one knew what it could have been. I wonder if the original report could be located in the police files.
