From: KieferSc@aol.com Date: Thu, 9 Jan 1997 13:28:18 -0500 (EST) Subject: What we experienced at Are 51!!!! To whomever reads this.... . My wife and I are avid UFO enthusiasts. We were in Laughlin for some gambling fun, and thought that a little trip down the Extraterrestrial Highway would break up the monotony of loosing all our money, so we headed for Area 51 and Rachel. On the night of Tuesday Jan. 7, at around 11:30 pm Pacific time, we entered the area and proceeded to hunt for the main gate to Area 51. We weren't having any luck as the labrinth of dirt roads out there can be confusing. So we decided that a little star gazing would be enough.... At this point we weren't real sure which direction Area 51 was. So we turned off the lights while parked on some kind of mound that held a huge tank of some sorts. After sitting for about a minute we saw something moving above the north horizon. It was twinkling like a star but had moved enough for both of us to recognize that it wasn't a star. It didn't have a specific flash, just random twinkling. We noticed that it went straight up and down, and back and forth. We also observed a hovering ability on the craft. I know that this is a military installation and that we were probably being watched and or listened to. So I ruled out extraterrestrial activity. We watched the craft do several manuevers that were inconsistant to any conventional craft I've seen to date. It hovered approx. 2000 feet from the tops of the mountain range it was over. Then it did a series of loops and what looked like rolls. After the object dipped below the mountain range we decided to get a little closer to the objects testing area. After driving a few miles north on one of the bigger dirt roads, sure enough we ended right in front of the gate to area 51. We sat there reading the 7 or 8 warning signs, and wondering what would happen if we crossed the line. My wife is a Photographer so she noticed the sign that stated there was to be no photography in this area... And then it threatened arrest if we failed to comply. So, being the photographer she is, she took a photo of the sign that said not too. Well you know what happened then. A truck that unknowingly to us was sitting right in the path of the flash, lit up like a christmas tree and started down the mountain he was hiding on. Of course we did an immediate about face and proceeded,( AT 90 MPH), to get the you know what outta there!!!! The security vehicle pursued us for what seemed an eternity and then broke the chase. After my wife and I smoked a pack of cigarettes, we finally calmed down enough to enjoy the experience. We then drove off the Etraterrestrial Highway and stopped at a Texaco where a man who had just been interviewed by the Discovery channel, told us about what we may have seen. He said that the military is testing a new stealth fighter that supposedly has hover capabilities. If this is true, I think the military has some sort of craft to steal technology from. I've worked around aircraft for many years and this craft handled like no other I'd seen.... Kiefer and Kathie Scott
