Full Description & Details

I don't want this published on a web site or anywhere else. I just wanted to know if anyone has seen anything resembling my description. This was probably a weather balloon. However, I saw an extremely large triangular-shaped object cross the sky over Hwy. 82 West out of Clarksville. At first, I thought it was one of those bat-shaped airplanes that was going to crash,but we live in a rural area where we don't see many airplanes and certainly not one as sophisticated as that. The nearest large airport would be Dallas about 150 miles away. Then, as I saw it clearer, I noticed that I could see clear sky through the center parts of the triangle. The three circular tubes making up the triangle sides were extremely large...maybe large enough to stack three cars one on top of the other making up the diameter. In the center, was some sort of circular object, I think like a doughnut. There were metal braces of some kind supporting this center structure. It was about the color of waxed paper, though it was opaque. Also, since the sun was shining on it, I could be mistaken in the color. It kind of tumbled slowly from side to point a couple of times, then went straight until I lost sight of it. I was driving down a small incline when I saw it. I sped up, thinking it was an airplane at first. It seemed to tumble in slow motion.

I have never before seen anything like this. When I have pictured a UFO in my mind, I pictured a saucer shape.

Do you think it was a weather balloon? I hope that was what I saw. I feel foolish contacting your organization about this, especially if it was a weather balloon.

Thank you.

Full Description & Details

Was drift fishing on port side of my 20 ft boat, 6 miles NE of Barnegat Inlet. NJ. Day was clear with little clouds and calm sea with few boats around. Had feeling that something was close to me (another boat) so I turned and looked to stern area on starboard side of boat and saw a circular object just above the water which was about to pass almost directly over my head. It was solid metal, no lights, no markings and I saw no windows nor any visable exhaust or landing gear, completely silent and not spinning. My bimini top was up so I jumped up on port side gunwale and viewed the object as it headed on straight line SW and just north of the Barnegat Lighthouse for 9 seconds, then gained altitude and passed just north of lighthouse over Island Beach State Park. Inland of Barnegat Inlet is nuclear power plant near Waretown, south near Atlantic City is FAA Tech facility, west is Lakehurst Naval Air Station and Mc Guire Air Force base. Wish I had some sort of camera onboard to document the siting.

Color of Object(s):

silver

Full Description & Details

Driving through the Colorado Rockies on the way to a camping trip with my grandparents I sat bored in the backseat of their SUV staring out the window. I saw a shiny silver disk-shaped object dart across the sky, then stop to hover. It was at that time I saw a second, identical object dart closely to the other object, then both darted out of the sky. I use the word, 'darted' because they didn't fly as craft I am familiar with fly; they seemed to move incredibly fast, literraly darting across the sky. This all happened in about twenty seconds. They were at quite a distance from our location and were not extremely high in the sky; mountains could be seen just below them.

Saucer shaped with 2 prongs on trailing edge.

Color of Object(s):

Looked dark grey but distance makes it hard to say.

Full Description & Details

Myself and 3 friends were walking across our university campus in the early evening. The sky was still light, it was a nice summer evening with a few large clouds in the sky. I saw an unusual craft high in the sky (I wouldn't even attempt to estimate altitude with any accuracy), it zipped across the clear sky and disappeared above one of the large clouds (so it was obviously above the height of these). I asked if everyone had seen it and everyone had. It was it's speed and unusual shape which caught our attention.

It moved very rapidly across the sky, faster than planes do. The shape was like a round bit at the front (or at least in the direction of travel) with 2 prongs jutting out behind. Strangely, it looked like the Enterprise from Star Trek would look from beneath, except without the middle section, just the saucer and the two trailing prongs.

The sighting was over so quickly, but we were all sure of the shape, and sure we hadn't seen anything like it before, or since for that matter.

I hope this info is of help to you, I'd love to know what it was we saw that night.

Full Description & Details

We live on the sixth floor of an apartment block and see a lot of sky from the windows. In Finland it is very light at nighttime at thís time of year. First I noticed a round shape in the sky and wondered whether it was a hot air balloon. I pointed it out to my boyfriend and we went to window to see it better. We I realized it was not a hot air balloon as it was moving quite fast with no sound. It had white light moving around it, behind the object, like a search light. It also appeared to have red lights on edges, maybe six to eight of them. These lights were red spots just visible against the sky. It was moving directly from north to south.

Even though seeing the object fascinated me, I found it a bit scary. If somebody would have a natural explanation for this it would be great.

Shape of Object(s)

Cigar on end

Color of Object(s):

Bright yellow

Full Description & Details

A friend and I were snow sledging in the grounds of a local agricultural college, when I spotted a bright yellow shape in the eastern sky moving northwards. The best way of describing it is if you can imagine a close up shot of a single jet engine (without the attached plane obviously) viewed from an oblique angle. It was like a cigar standing on it's end about 1 -2 miles away. The shape was so large, that had it indeed been an aircraft from the scale of the object it would have been maybe 100metres away, so we knew it wasn't a plane!! It was completely silent, which we also knew would not have been the case had it been an aircraft at that distance, and it moved quite slowly but evenly across the sky. We both saw it quite clearly for about 15 - 20 seconds. We told our parents who, it being New Years Eve, were too drunk to take a couple of 15 year olds seriously!!

Full Description & Details

was sitting on stoop and heard this noise that was extremely loud but i couldn't see it until i leaned over my porch railing and seen something very big but so dark you really couldn't tell what shape. i remember seeing some orange/red lights. for some reason i said, "i hear you but i can't see you." this is when i took the first picture when it was very close to my house, i would guess telephone pole high or roof top high. i was using a 110 instamatic camera, so after i took the first picture i had to wait for the light to come back on inorder to take another picture. when the light came back on, i took the second picture. this thing was going up and away. within seconds, in seems, it was gone. what puzzles me is, if this thing was as loud and it was, how come i didn't hear it when it was far away and coming closer to me. anyway the next day i talked to a few people in the city of cumberland, md where i live and many people heard it, went out to look for it, one friend looked but didn't see it, other people thought a plane may have crashed. the cumberland police were called. i made a police report and they had many calls about this "thing" . after this the cumberland times newspaper started putting articles about ufo's in the local paper. I ended up sending about 9 copies of my pictures to Budd Hopkins and his associate Peter Robbins to look at. Mr. Hopkins told my that my pictures are very interesting. the pictures were suppose to be sent to Bruce MacAbee to be looked at, but when i wrote him a letter about them, he didn't recall them. HMMM.... anyway, i've made many enlargements of them and studied them myself and find them very interesting. I have always believed, still do and always will.
