Full Description & Details

Standig on my balcony with my neighbour tasting a good coffee, a strange sphere like red-orange thing crossed the sky. It wasn't moving very fast, and surely not on course like an airliner. It moved from west to east and was very clear for about 30 secs, with no sound or trail, just the sphere. Although it wasn't moving fast on first sight, the calculation afterwards between some clouds indicated that it moved about 150KM in 30 seconds. Never seen anything like this before. it dissapeared when it flied into a cloud.

Witness Background

Full Description & Details

It was dark and clear sky, no Moon visible, winter-time and temperature was below zero. I surprisely noticed a car-sized, bright, slow-moving orb-shaped object what flew just little over the top of trees. It was totally silent. It resired about 300 ft. from the edge of a forest and moved horizontally about 500 ft to the west according the edge of a forest. The speed was like same as riding a bicycle. While we stayed watching it, the object stopped and stayed a moment in place. Then it landed very slowly and slightly diagonally to a forest and disappeared there..

Full Description & Details

I was awaiting a bus home on the outskirts of town when I saw the object, a large, glowing ' ball of fire' with a trail, going horizontal to the horizon, roughly North to South , a man came along and stood near me at the bus stop, I watched the object, so did he, I glanced at him and he me, I said to him '' are you seeing whatI'm seeing ? '' he replied ''yes''. I then said that I thought it may be the comet they were talking about on the news earlier that day, he agreed.

We watched the 'comet' for several minutes.

Later, when I arrived home, the late evening news was on, so, I guess it was around 10pm by then, the news was talking about the comet, I said to my husband ''ah, I just saw that at the top of Birkfield Drive'' my husband said '' don't be silly, they jusy said it cannot be seen from Earth as such. What the heck had I seen then ?

I have often wondered if I ought to try and find that man at the bus stop to confirm my story. Let me know if you guys ever hear from him !

Other Comments

the 'comet' came up from the town direction on a north-south path, if we call the horizon ' the 9 to 3 line on a clock, the 'comet' was travelling at 10 to 2 path, just above the horizon.

our local paper here is THE EAST ANGLIAN DAILY TIMES, and its sister paper THE EVENING STAR. I do not know if anything was reported, I no longer remenber the date, my daughter was born 29TH August1975, and she was a baby at the time of the sighting, it was a cool evening, so, sometime from Sept 75 - Apr76 I guess, IT WAS A NIGHT WHEN A KNOWN COMET WAS DUE

Full Description & Details

while I was standing on my balcony a light object (like a light ball) flew from my left side to the right. Altought there is a airport not far from there the object was whether blinking nor showed any other indication of a military jet, private one or passenger jet.

Also the angel was funny, because it flew from right to left as far as I could see it flew just some 100 meter over the ground. My flat at that time was situated on a hill side.

I can't say it was a spaceship but whatever it was it was not a plan.

Full Description & Details

I was on my back patio, looking through my binoculars to find my usual sattelite sightings. This was the second paticularly clear nights. I found one sattelite following it's normal West to East path, when I spotted another much fainter sattelite directly above it heading in the opposite direction. Only much much faster and farther out. I followed it for a moment, and then noticed it split into two. I shook my head and refocused the lense, and saw it again, still two. Now following parallel to each other at a speed I have never seen a satelite fly. Then it did something strange, it would come back into one, then split out into two, heading about a 45 degree angle away from each other, then come back to parallel each other. But sometimes they would jump backwards, as if my vision jumped. Only, they did it a few times. I would keep my eyes off center, and keep a major star in focus and steady to jude the movement of the objects. They were definately jerkish and would shoot out fast then come back a little then join together and head out. I followed them until out of sight, about 3 minutes in all. They made the other sattelite seem slow like an airplane, but I have been watching sattelites long enough to know the difference. Plus I fly. This thing was in my estimation about twice the distance of the sattelite I was watching, very faint, but clear enough to see it's movements. This was no sattelite. Moving at 90 degree angles, 45 degree angles in a split second. It was quite amazing. I truely hope some day, I see them again. It was remarkable. My background has included being a Police Officer-Reserve, a volunteer with the Fire Department, and trained in Disaster Response with UMCOR through a FEMA training program. This event was clearly not an airplane, sattelite or shooting star.

Full Description & Details

It was around the 13th of August either 1969 or '70. We lived in a 6th floor apt in Port Chester, NY (about 25 miles north of NYC). I was out on the terrace waiting to see early meteors (it was the first night of the Perseid meteor shower).

I faced the direction from which they were supposed to arise. It was only about 12:15 a.m., too early to expect to see anything much. It was nice and dark that night.



Then low on the horizon, a bright light appeared. I remember thinking, “wow, this is going to be quite a show”, when two boomerang-shaped things - one slightly "ahead" of the other, but rigidly constant in their position to each other, flew over. They were a luminous silvery green or blue color... the color of a cool flourescent light bulb when it's on.



The glowing objects crossed the entire sky, from the horizon to a point directly overhead and then over my building, where they disappeared from my view, in about 3 seconds. Maybe it was as little as 1 second. It was extraordinarily fast and totally silent.

I remember this as if it just happened a moment ago. Ofcourse I'll never forget it. I didn't call the airforce, or the police, I just put on the radio and called the host of an all night radio show and told him what I'd just seen. His response was something like,”wow, that’s wild, that’s cool.”

I did NOT return to the terrace to see the meteor shower. Nothing falling thru the atmosphere could have matched what I'd just seen.



The next morning, I called the Westchester County airport to ask whether any new planes were being tested (as if they would have told me, or as if they would even have KNOWN) or if anyone had reported seeing anything strange in the skies the night before. I expected and got the answer, “no.”



That August night in Port Chester, NY was NOT the first time I saw a UFO. It sounds suspect even to me, but there were dozens of people who saw what I will now describe.



In 1967 and 1968 we went to the precurser of the BIG Woodstock music festival - in Woodstock, NY. Both were held on labor-day weekend in September. 68. (These 2 small festivals were the inspiration for the famous, enormous Woodstock festival and I'm sure that many attendees were stoned on marijuana by the time IT happened...... but, mass hypnosis? You judge.



I was lying on a blanket looking up at the night sky (always loved to sky-watch) and saw what was "obviously" satellite, slowly crossing the sky. I'd seen satellites before and knew what they looked like. A gentleman adjacent to our spot on the lawn heard me say "look, a satellite" -- and he yelled out for folks to look up. OK, now dozens, maybe 100s of us were watching, when suddenly this "satellite" stopped moving for afew moments. Then, it turned. Stopped again. ( Now folks were yelling & screaming... ) and then it turned some more, wiggled about, and suddenly whooshed up and away fading into the darkness. ( I could say, at the speed of light!)



Unbelieveable, a year later, same festival, my "neighbor ono his blanket" wasn't there but the announcer onstage heard people yelling to look up, and again, we all did, and AGAIN, we all saw the same performance.

Was this mass hypnosis? Did someone have a powerful flashlight? It was the dawn of laser beam technology… could someone have gone to so much trouble? But… there were no clouds in the sky. Lots of stars.

Iit wasn't until a year LATER, when I had the really awesome experience, that I realized I was one of the few lucky people to have actually seen UFOs.

I believed in them for years before I ever saw one.



That’s my story. I’ve meant to tell it all to one of these UFO watcher groups, or to the AirForce, or to someone doing serious research I really wouldn’t know WHERE to go with it. But until then, it's not something I usually discuss; I don't feel like being pigeonholed as some sort of weirdo who makes up wild stories or has hallucinations.

Other Comments

This is the first time I have ever "publically" told of my experience. I have longed to contact the "right" people... and still am not sure if your website is the way to go... but it's a start. This happened so long ago that, unless I find my old agenda, or something with a date on it, I won't really know whether it was 68, 69 or 70. I regret not having made an official report to -- who? The Air Force? oh well... the best possible thing for me would be to have SOMEONE confirm that they saw this event.... I was totally sober, wide awake, not on drugs;

Full Description & Details

I was traveling with my parents on a bus to the Iguazu Falls in northern Argentrina at that time. It was a package tour , so we were all traveling with the other 20 people all the time. We had stayed over in the city of Parana , in the souther part of the Mesopotamia Region in Argentina and had departed around 4.30AM from Parana northwards towards the city of Resistencia in the province of Chaco.Around 5am, before dawn , I think it was my mother, that spotted 2 lights,and I remember she asked me if there was an airport nearby, as she thought it to be a plane ( the size of the lights more or less matching that of a low flying plane) . I know there is no airport in that area, it's farmland and very scarcely inhabited...soon after the lights stopped moving in any particular direction and that was what brought us to pay a grater attention to the event.

The lights were then 3 and formed a line and then one of them started moving up and down ( consequently building triangles at all times) in very rush movements stopping and moving in a very unreal way. ( more or less like one might do pointing the beam of a torch on a wall and moving them in a quick way)..By that time the bus stopped and some of us got off in the deserted route. Teh movements continued for a fes more munites always in the same area in the sky.Soon after, on of the lights separated from the formation, at forst quite slowlyand the with an incredible speed disappered into the horizon.The 2 other lights followed suit soon after that.
