Full Description & Details



Reading the recent reports of a triangle shaped object prompted me to write this. In the summer of 1974 around July 4th, I went with a college friend to visit his parents in Lexington , Mississippi. One of his cousins and her friend from the L.A. area of California had also come in for the visit. They were returning to California on a late night flight out of the Jackson airport, so my friend and I drove them to the Jackson airport. After we dropped them off at the terminal, we headed back to Lexington. There was a road that ran adjacent to the Jackson airport that lead to the highway back to Lexington, and we were driving on this road. Far ahead, just above treetop level, there were three very bright lights that were positioned like landing lights on a commercial jet. The two outer lights were like the ones on a jet's wings, and the center at a slighty higher position, like the nose landing light.

We friend and I both observed the lights because of their brightness. I said they must be landing lights. We continued driving down this road and became even more curious because the lights hadn't moved at all. That ruled out their being on a jet so my friend said they must be on the sides and top of a large water tower. We came to a stop sign and needed to turn left. The lights were directly in front of us, maybe 50-100 feet above the treetops, in this heavily wooded area. There were no street lights or buildings around and it was very quiet. We had the windows rolled down in the car and the radio was not turned on.

We sat there looking at the lights wondering what they could be. They were so bright that you couldn't see what was behind them or what they were connected to, much like when you approach a parked car in a dark area and it has its headlights on. You can't see the car at all, only the bright headlights.

My friend was driving and went ahead to make the left turn. The road we were turning onto was a four lane, divided road with a dirt and grass median between the lanes. He pulled across the two lanes that were headed in the opposite direction, across the median area, and then turned left onto the shoulder of the lanes we needed to use. He then stopped the car with the foot brake and sat there with the engine idling. Now the lights were on my right, as passenger in the car. I stared out the window at them and started to become a little frightened because this was unlike anything I'd ever seen. After a short time, my friend took his foot off the brake and started idling slowly down the shoulder.

After we had rolled only 5-10 feet, the lights suddenly rotated towards us to stay pointed directly at the side of the car, but slightly behind the car. After the rotation, they started moving beside the car, at the same speed we were going, and maintaining the position slighly behind. As soon as the rotation occurred and the lights were moving along with the car, I went into a heart pounding panic. I was so afraid of what might happen next, because the object behind the lights was big -- maybe 80-100 feet from the left most light to the right most. And the silence, precision and complete lack of vibration in its movement was unlike anything I had ever seen. I urged my friend to step on the gas and get the hell away, but he hesitated as he craned his neck to look out of the passenger side window. After what seemed like an eternity, he pulled onto the main part of the road and accelerated. As soon as he accelerated, the lights stopped moving, but they slowly rotated to always point directly at the car. I had my head out the passenger window so I could watch it carefully because I was so terrified it would follow us. After we had gone about 500 feet down the road, the lights started moving across the road, always staying rotated to aim at us. The movement was slow, precise and vibration free. When they reached the stand of trees on the opposite side of the road from where we had begun our acceleration, they went down smoothly and disappeared into the trees. At this point, of course, I got a little courage back and urged my friend to turn around and go back to see if we could see anything. He agreed, but we had to drive further until we got to a crossover the median. We then turned and headed back. I watched the area like a hawk during the entire time, but never saw anything else.

When we got back to the median crossover that we had used originally after the stop sign, we stopped on the shoulder before turing around. I peered into the trees but saw nothing. So we turned around at the crossover and headed back toward Lexington. I watched out the back of the car until we got back to Lexington but saw nothing else.

Neither my friend nor myself had anything to drink and didn't use any drugs. We were completely clear headed and lucid when all this occurred.

Size of Object(s)

I'd estimate it was about the size of a small aircraft

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Not good at this but I'd say, thinking of pen-y-fan in wales, about 500 m above the ground.

Bright, very intense and clear, star like.

Color of Object(s):

Lovely emerald green. Very striking colour.

Full Description & Details

My friend and I were sat in his garden after a barbecue. We were pretty tired but chatting away, smoking cigars. For some reason we both looked up simultaneously and saw a bright emerald green light (approx. 20 times the size of an ordinary star) that appeared to be quite low in the sky swiftly cut across the sky more or less above our heads. It seemed that as we layed eyes on it it suddenly changed direction: literally (though it is a cliche) at 90 degrees and sped off away from us. It was completely silent and the colour and definition of the light was very, very sharp: there didn't seem to be any atmospheric disturbance (i.e. pollution or pollen or whatever) that blurred it's appearance, leading us to believe (along with it's sheer size) to be quite low. Certainly, I'd say, maybe a third to a half of the normal height of regular cloud cover. We both immediately looked at each other and quite casually confirmed to ourselves that we had just witnessed the passing of aero-technology not commonly known to man. It was very eerie but it did not particularly suprise either of us that we had seen it. I think we're both pretty convinced there's an awful lot out there (human or otherwise) we know nothing about. Witney, Oxfordshire, is also very close to Brize Norton air base, so who knows...

Other Comments

People need to stop looking to the government to confirm these sightings or own up to 'undisclosed knowledge'. The government has many responsibilities, admittedly some of them not so noble as others. People need make up their own minds: look at the evidence and draw their own conclusions. And even if they were aliens: so what ? We really need to start making the most of the time we have on this planet, now, without them: the majority of humankind needs to mature, if not outright destroy itself. If you were an alien whizzing around this planet, would YOU want to land and start poking your weird-looking head around corners ? I, personally, would not.

Full Description & Details

A glowing dirty orange colored ball appeared directly overheard about 1Am August 3, 2004 over North Las Vegas. It appeared to take up as much sky as about 1/4 of the moon. It moved swiftly and smoothly to the North, in the general direction of the Nevada Test sight and Groom Lake. It changed direction three times and appeared to hestitate. It accelerated smoothly, then dissapeard behing the mountains. I became smaller very quickly. Either it's shape was changing, or it moved very quickly.

Full Description & Details

It was in the spring or summer of 1997. I was looking out at the mountains from my front porch and talking on the phone. I spotted a large white metallic V-shaped or seagull shaped object gliding very slowly in front of the mountains. It was in view for approximately 30 seconds. I watched it as it moved downward and disappeared between the mountains and the valley below. At first I thought it was a glider but realized it was too large for a glider. I'm guessing that it was about 200 feet or more in length.

Full Description & Details

I looked up at the sky and saw what looked like two bright red stars. I look up at the sky often and this was odd. I continued to watch them for a few minutes (thinking they were some sort of aircraft) and they still had not moved. I called a few people and they saw them as well. After 10 minutes they began to move slowly closer together then moved away and stopped. Around 10:00 p.m. they began to pulsate and slowly disappeared. I posted this because of the pevious response from Chicago on this date and time. I have never been to this website before. A google search brought me here.

Full Description & Details

A friend of mine (Patricia), lives between Bryn Marr & Winthrop. Her apt. window is about 6 or 7 stories up facing west, towards O'hare airport. We were sitting in her living room and she said, look at the pretty lights. So another friend (Ann), and myself went to see what she was speaking of. Patricia said those lights have just been sitting there in one spot all evening, before I made it to her home around 8pm. When I looked out the window there were dozens of planes flying around. some really close others very far but definately more than usual. At first we thought they were flares. But we did not see them fall out of a plane or shoot up from the ground. There were at least 4 lights just slowly fading in & out in a row. One of them slowly hovered up and down. But the thing that struck me is that it was so damn bright. Not like a plane with a few lights and definately not a blimp. It just sat there in one place for hours while other identifiable planes were around. We decided to go the the roof of her building 4 stories higher, and they were still there. Then we thought it could have been planes waiting to gas up or for a place to land. But planes just do not sit like that, not even military fighter planes and with no noise. we can hear evey plane that flew around but these were very quiet. We decided to do some research and they were very much like the lights from Arizona but not as many.

On July 28th 2004, around 9:30PM my brother and I who was visiting me from Bulgaria went downtown Chicago to take a few pictures. We took a series of pictures. I got home and my girlfriend wanted to see the pictures. When we open the first one we thought that the object over the city was the moon, but when she zoom the picture we saw something very strange, something that none of as has ever seen before. When I took the photos I saw nothing. We spent some time trying to figure out what it was. We thought it might be some kind of UFO. We have no idea. These pictures were taken by Sony Cyber-shot 4.1 mega pixels camera.

Color of Object(s):

white - ionized lights (plasma-type)

Full Description & Details

On a perfectly clear night sky in june 2000 (no clouds) temperature 27 °C, four vertical equidistant bright white plasma-type lights materialized out of nowhere approximately 500 meters to 1 kilometer from my bedroom window at an angle of approximately 10° above horizontal and began drawing four equidistant plasma-type lines from my left to my right. The lines became longer until the 4th second of observation after which they became shorter and became four white bright equidistant ionized points again and then instantaneously disappeared at the 8th second of observation. The velocity of this coordinated motion was slow, determined and constant and was definitely not a climatic phenomenon such as lightning, the moon or stars. Nor can the lights be attributed to the reflection of light beams of cars or trucks off clouds because there were no clouds or from the Eiffel tower which has a rotating lighthouse-type beam. Airplane safety lights or helicopter lights and satelites can also be ruled out. After analysis it became evident that the four bright white points of light and lines were in fact manifestations of a single vessel or ship actually moving in the opposite direction (from my right to the left) which means that the vessel had a very sophisticated system of camouflage enabling it to be invisible to the naked eye. The system of propulsion is almost certainly based on artificially created gravitational pulses with opposite polarization to ordinary gravitational waves. This is based on latest theoretical research in Physics originating in France which illustrates that the quantization of Einstein's equation for the power of gravitational waves in General Relativity admits two symmetrical solutions just as in Dirac's relativistic wave equation. The vessel was either of French or American origin and perhaps of extra-terrestrial origin since only the Airforces of these countries have had the required technology of plasma-magnetohydrodynamics and electro-gravitodynamics for at least 35 years now.
