On one evening in 1969, Carter was pumping himself up to give a speech at a local Lion's Club. Around 7:15 pm, Carter was alerted to an object in the sky just above the horizon to the west. According to Carter the object was bright white like the moon in the middle of the night. The object moved in towards Carter but stopped above a gore of pine trees before changing color from white to blue to red, then back to white before taking off into the night.

There was nothing else illuminating the craft

It's fair to assume that whatever Carter saw was a craft, bird, or something else that was hit by a beam of light. What else could explain the color change? Carter believes that whatever he saw was self-illuminated, which would make sense with all of the color changes.

In 1973, Carter said:

There were about twenty of us standing outside of a little restaurant, I believe, a high school lunch room, and a kind of green light appeared in the western sky. This was right after sundown. It got brighter and brighter. And then it eventually disappeared. It didn't have any solid substance to it, it was just a very peculiar-looking light. None of us could understand what it was.
