What happened at the end of this movie?

They speak of some of their extraterrestrial adults settling on Witch Mountain, and keeping to themselves. And that is described as where Tony and Tia are trying to escape to, upon slow discovery of the truth. And when they are being chased, their uncle (or some other adult) is speaking to Tony on the telephone while they are at the hotel lobby and tells him that they will perform a feat that will stop the men chasing them, because they will lose any further interest.

It is the appearance of the spacecraft at the end. First it appears to fly out of view with the children on board. Then it returns (after the bad men have left) and appears once more to the man who had helped the children, before disappearing back into the lake area.

It's hard to tell if it went underwater for hiding or disappeared entirely.

My basic question is, did they return to outer space somewhere (their original planet had died) or did they just go into private hiding?

My question is more about the film, rather than the original book. I have read the plot on Wikipedia and it seems like it might be off.

Thanks for any input or ideas.

From what I remember, and it's been years, they went to a hiding place in Witch Mountain, here on earth. Then they came back to the regular world as teenagers in the sequel, Return From Witch Mountain and saved the planet or something.

I can't believe I remember a movie I saw as a kid in the 70s but I can't remember to buy milk or get the dry-cleaning!

Thanks. I hadn't even thought of watching that one for clues. I saw Return years ago and I don't remember much about it, other than it being set in San Francisco...I think.

Weren't there supposedly a whole bunch of people from their planet living in the secret mountain? I don't think we ever got to see it, but I think the people they met said something like that. Now I want to watch it again. When I was a little girl, I had a little makeup case that I would pretend was the magic case Tia had in the movie. I used to admire that actress, Kim Richards, a lot at that age, and she was in numerous movies and TV shows within a couple of years' time.
