August 20, 2004 DeLand, Florida - By mid-September 1968, Jim Oglesby had been going out nightly to watch the skies around Bithlo, Florida, for the unidentified glowing objects he had been seeing there since New Year's Eve 1967. (See Part 1) In addition to the mysterious craft that seemed to provoke military helicopters and jets to arrive, Jim had seen both a red glowing "cigar" and an amber beam of light right above the orange grove at the edge of Pickett Lake in February to March 1968. Then about six months later on September 16, 1968, it was such a memorable evening that he wrote what happened in a journal he kept about all his sightings. That night, he was parked in front of the orange grove around 7:30 p.m. He had invited his mother, niece, and a friend and fellow employee named Larry Kelly, who brought along one of his friends.
