Ken,

I thought you might be interested in this statement made by a friend of mine. He saw a UFO while on a shopping trip in Galveston. He is very reluctant to talk with anyone about his experience. If you think it is .worth checking out, please advise as soon as possible.           

THE FOLLOWING IS A STATEMENT MADE BY D.... D.... OF TEXAS CITY, TEXAS ON AUGUST 6TH, 1974////////////////

On the morning of July 28th, 1974, I was with my wife on a shopping trip in Galveston.  While I was sitting in my car on a parking lot, I kept seeing something shine or reflect from back over the ocean.  I noticed it the first time after I had been parked about 15 minutes. After my wife finished shopping I took her home from the store and told her I would be back later and that I had some things I had to do. I went to a secluded spot on the beach and took out my binoculars and began looking for the object again. After app. 5 minutes I spotted it moving about 1,000 feet high out of a cloud formation. After approximately 20-25 seconds the object came down lower. It appeared to be about 25 - 30 feet in length, was, round, and had a small protrusion, as if a cockpit, on the top.

       After 40 seconds (app) I noticed that the object was slowly circling a small fishing vessel. It then swooped down over the craft and made an (abrupt – X’ed out) quick 360 turn out over the ocean and disappeared from-view in about 2 seconds or three seconds.

       Later I discovered that the fishing craft was adrift from where it had been moored. And was found approximately 37 miles from where it had been moored////////
