This event occurred in 1947, I was 16 years old. A friend and I were sitting across the street from a tavern when suddenly we saw 5 bright white lights coast into view and hovered above the tavern. It was triangle in shape. We were both stunned wondering what this could be. The white lights turned from white to dark red. They pulsated 7-8 times and turned into a bright red. Than the color changed to a dark green and again pulsated 7-8 times and turned to a bright green; than they returned back to white. We wanted to get a better look, but were afraid to go near it. Someone just outside of the tavern saw it and before we knew it a group of 6 adults were looking. They were directly under it looking up at it. We heard and adult say, "what is it and what is keeping it up there?" and another adult say, "sh listen." "Listen to what?" was the response. We were about to cross the street to join the others when suddenly, this thing took off from zero to infinity in 4 seconds. I told my parents about the event and they just laughed at it. Two days later, my Pop came home with a paper talking about the flying saucer that crashed in the desert of Arizona. My friend called me and asked, "Do you think that is what we saw?" At that time I had never heard of flying saucers or UFO's. It has puzzled me over the years and I know what I saw and experienced. It was real.
