An unidentified flying object was sighted north of Hines Creek July 16 and was
witnessed by a number of district residents.
Mrs. Steve Tachit, who lives on a
farm 14 miles southwest of Hines Creek, said a neighbor phoned her and told
her about an object moving from north to east in the sky.
She said she went into the yard and
sighted an object which appeared to be large and white to the naked eye. The
time was 8:40 p.m.
The object was “floating gently east”
and moved so slowly that movement was difficult to discern.
The Tachit family later observed the
object through binoculars and a rifle telescope. Mrs. Tachit said the object
then appeared to be brown, with large, scallopy convolutions. There was no
obvious mode of propulsion.
Mrs. Tachit was unable to estimate
the distance from which she observed the object, but It was visible for miles
“It sort of had us puzzled,” Mrs.
