The Glider sighting, also known as the Living UFO sighting, was a very bizarre extraterrestrial sighting that occurred in 1925. The witness, a pilot named Don Wood, Jr., kept silent about it for thirty-four years for fear of ridicule, but in 1959 he wrote a letter to the magazine “Flying Saucers” to explain what he saw.

The creature was described as being round and flat, with a diameter of approximately 8-feet. It had a red underside and appeared to be biological in nature. “It was hurt,” Wood wrote in the letter. “And as it breathed the top would rise and fall, making a half-foot hole all around it like a clam opening and closing.”
After twenty minutes, the creature began to pulsate and grow extremely bright. This act appeared to grab the attention of its "mother", which floated over Wood and his companion. The larger creature looked similar in appearance to the smaller one, but it was approximately 30-feet in diameter. It grabbed the smaller monster with “four sucker-like tongues” and took off into the air. (mysteriousuniverse.org)
- This legend could also be categorized as a UFO Sighting, but it was categorized as an Alien Sighting based on the biological nature of the entity in question.
