Full Description & Details

I think it was towards the end of 1984. I was about 11 years old. My mother was driving my brother and I home from basketball training and just before she turned the corner into the main road where we lived in Hawthorn she pulled over. At first my brother Richard and I didn't really pay any attention but soon asked her why she had stopped. At first she said there was no reason, but by then we'd already noticed it. Across the main road (Tooronga Rd.) was a high school and its football oval, grounds etc. were opposite our house, beyond the grounds was a large quarry. Gum trees lined the boundary of the school. There was a bright white light that resembled a star but it was larger over the grounds. It seemed to be perhaps 300 meters away and 100 meters up in the air. It was noisless. It grew during the next few seconds, or may have been coming closer. My mum said not to look at it and was scared. She panicked and started to drive off in fear. She turned left and although our house was the second house on the left she went past it. She said she didn't like the thing and wanted to get away from it. The object seemed to be coming towards us and as we drove by the school football field I saw it transform from a large white sphere to different formations of lights, for example two red ones on one side and a blue one on the other side then to a diamond shape of green and yellow. It seemed to be about 5 meters square although it was amorphorous in that it continually changed. It didn't seem real. We drove down to the supermarket that was about half a mile away and I was looking out the rear window saying "no its still following us". I remember noticing that the street seemed strangely quiet and there seemed to be a complete abscence of any people or any other cars even. There were other cars in the supermarket parking lot, however. My mum waited there in the lot looking up at the sky for a few minutes. We asked what it was and she said she didn't know. I was imploring that we go to the police but she said they wouldn't believe us, they'd think we were mad. She said she thought it was gone and apprehensively drove home. I thought it was gone too, but as we pulled into our driveway it just seemed to appear out of nowhere from over at the football field where it had first been spotted roughly, flew over the road and almost over the car and over the house. Its underside was circular and grey and I distinctly remember there were three balls in a triangular formation in the 'underside of it' imbedded in the main body of the craft. It now appeared for the first time to appear 'solid' and able to be seen concretely. There were also two or three white lights coming off it. It was dusk at this stage. And the next thing I remember was my mum being on the phone and all the lights being out in the house for some reason, (now dark). There was a green light shining in through the back of the house that filled all the rear rooms. My mother was watching through the kitchen window into the back yard. I tried to see but she was almost hysterical in trying to stop me I did however, get a look. It was hovering about a metre above our back shed that was attatched to the back of the house about 7 or 8 metres away it seemed to make a humming noise. It looked as I had seen it over the house with the three "ball" configuration but it emitted green light that sometimes seemed to flash directly at us and then other times would just be immersing the whole area. I wanted to get a toy bow and arrow that I had run outside and fire it at it. I wanted to talk to them and see who was in it and tried to get out the back door but my mum stopped me. I was very annoyed by that and said it wasn't fair. She said they might hurt me, that we didn't know what they wanted, and I said I bet they're friendly. Then it just seemed to end. Its strange because i have very little recollection of what occured after this. i don't remember going to sleep that night even. or really talking about it much at school, (I'm not suggesting missing time neccesarily) however I do remember speaking with my brother about it and my mum, who had very clear recollections of it, however my mother would only say it was something very strange and didn't like talking about it, she would get angry and panicky if pressed. My mother passed away in 1992 but my brother who would have been 9 or 10 still remembers clearly, My mother had mentioned it to her mother who I have spoken to recently about this and she corroberated what had I experienced, saying Marguerite had told her about it in some detail. I intend to make further enquiries among family and friends she may have told to gather more info. I have always wanted to make some sense of this incident, it just doesn't fit into anything, It's almost an abberation. I hope that somehow this story will link with someone elses and illuminate things. My brother, Richard can also reccount this event.

Full Description & Details

I first dreamt about building a UFO in my Dads laboratory about a week before. In the dream I built one and my brother came downstairs and said it would never fly after I wheeled it out of the double doors. I climbed in and took off and the world disappeared behind me I then looked at the beauty of the galaxy and the stars and differing colors of nebulas. The port holes I was looking out in the craft were too constricting and I left the craft in which my consciousness shifted. I was then a giant not with a body but it seemed like the imagination at the core of my soul. I sat on a nebula and zoomed up on differing locations it was like my eyes could zoom up close on anything. Strange dream different than other dreams I had had.

Approximately one week later our family was taking something to eat for my uncle who was staying with us at the time. He worked at Inerpace which mined lignite and was staying late. My father was driving my mother was in the passenger seat and my brother was sitting behind my mother in the back seat next the family dog “Turkey” who was sitting in the middle and I was sitting in the back seat behind my father. We pulled over and my father said; “would you look at that isn’t that the strangest thing you ever saw.” I thought to myself look at what and wasn’t really expecting to see anything that special. I was astonished when I looked and found it to be a UFO which was disk shaped and very large approximately 100 yards or larger it had landed on top of a mesa on a peak called Buena vista peak. It had a red glowing dome, red, blue, and yellow lights which went around clock wise and white lights which were emitted from port holes or windows. The craft had just landed and the lights were starting to slow down I also heard something like interlacing frequencies which was also starting to subside after it landed and was powering down its engines. I thought to myself that I wanted to run towards the craft and take me away and that I wanted to start a new life of something extraordinary but wasn’t sure what that may be I just new that I would probably get the spanking of my life if I tried. We noticed about five or six cars pull up behind us and the craft started powering up its engines and the lights were starting to move around faster and faster. I started to feel a static electric field as if I would have had my hand near a TV screen but it seemed to envelop my whole body and move past me towards the craft which almost gave me the impression of being within a void that felt alien to me. At that moment the family dog turkey vomited all over the back seat of the car and my father made me clean it up in which he wouldn’t let me wait. I cleaned it up as quickly as I could but the craft had already left and I didn’t get a chance to see it take off. I asked where it was in disappointment and followed my fathers finger which it just looked like a star to me I then watched it and it streaked off at a tremendous speed almost instantaneously it streaked off. I asked my brother about it and he said when it took off it zigzagged at an incredible speed almost instantaneously appearing at a different location several times and then streaked off where I saw it for the last time.

Other Comments

it looked like the drawings of the bentwaters crafts that were seen and aired on British columbia TV news right after the it happened. The discription of the craft has since changed and other resources that I have found on the internet don't match what was first reported.

Full Description & Details

Cruising at 8,500 feet we experienced some engine power lost in ours single engine Cessna. The engine lost about 500 rpm so we decided to decend from 8,500 to 3,500 feet just in case we have to make an emergency landing. Duing ours 5 minutes slow decent we experienced another problems around 6,000 feet as ours instruments went enthusiasticcally crazy as ours compass was reading opposit along with others instruments gauges reading incorrectly for less than ten second. For half of a minute we look at one another questioning what just happend? Next, ours engine begin to sputter knowing we still have 3/4 of fuel left and the cockpit instruments lights also begins to flickers on and off for another few short second while my friend as a pilot in command begin to go through necessary emergency checklist as I kept active looking at the map and outside of the windows checking our location to find the nearest airport or a place to land. During decent flying through and away from the clouds I notice a super extream diffrent asorted colors lights which lit up the clouds like a heavy massive thunderstorm behind us. At one point its seem like it was right behind us. We did not hear any thunder near by and the forcast in our direction of flight have no thunderstorm in the area. Once we both have clear the clouds one big strange beautiful bright light shot in front and above us like a bullet traveling enormous speed from behind us between a mile or two than it splits apart into two sets of lights and shot away again in diffrent direction in an upward direction. We both never have believed in UFO until then.

Full Description & Details

From the porch of my home, located on a high ridge in Liberty, KY, my boyfriend and I were watching the dense fog when the fog appeared to divide, forming a cylinder of bright light about three feet in front of us. My friend and I stepped off the porch and approached the beam, both of us attempted to enter the cylinder but as we stepped forward, the beam moved back several feet. We continued to "chase" the beam around the yard but it would not allow us entrance. When we turned away from the beam and walked away, the beam followed us, staying close at our heels. My friend continued to walk around the yard and the beam followed his movements but whenever entry was attempted, the beam moved away a few feet. I was able to peer inside the beam which contained a very bright shutter-like opening deep within the interior. When we stepped back on to the porch we noticed the ground beneath the beam appeared to be bubbling with a thick plasma like substance although no heat was felt. The incident lasted about 10 minutes. The next day I surveyed my yard for evidence but found nothing. The only odd thing noticed was that the water level in my swimming pool had dropped almost a foot.

----------------------------

Update to this report, submitted March 20, 2005:

update on previously reported sighting, recorded on this site on 9/6/04 concerning incident of 08/22/04.

On 9/6/04, I reported observations of a very bright cylinder shaped object that appeared in my yard, and was witnessed by 2 people. Refer to post listed on this site on 9/6/04 from Liberty, KY.

Whether coincidence or not, I believe a follow-up report should be included on this site.

Approximately several days following the reported incident of August 22, 2004, I became very ill. I developed a severe skin rash which spread all over my body and, at the same time, a dime-size lump appeared on my left breast. In addition to these symptoms, I was physically weak and nauseated most of the time. I did not immediately connect these symptoms with the August 22 incident wherein myself and a friend encountered the bright cylinder in my yard. Interestingly, my friend reported to me that within days of our experience, his eyesight seemed to be failing. Alarmed, my friend sought medical attention and he underwent surgery on the optical nerve of his eye.

My symptoms turned out to be breast cancer. I had 2 surgeries and 35 radiation treatments.

Prior to the 8/22/04 incident, both myself and my friend enjoyed reasonably good health. I have never been prone to skin rashes and have always done self breast exams. The lump in my left breast had a sudden onset, and appeared at the same time as the severe skin rash. Although cancer was the diagnosis, none of the 3 physicians I consulted could explain the origin of the rash.

My friend and I stood within inches from the opening of the cylinder and the immense bright light emitting from the beam. We interacted with the "craft" for at least, 10 minutes.

I don't believe there was any deliberate malicious intent by the "beamers" but the almost immediate dire physical effects on both my firiend and myself, may have their origin from this exposure.

It is my hope that our government and our scientists will eventually take these reports seriously and cease downplaying their importance or writing them off as insignificant. The excuse for not doing so, seems to be that no empirical evidence exists to support such encounters and sightings. I argue, that experiential data may lack direct evidence but as subjective as it may be, I believe the growing volume of individuals reporting unexplained phenomena deserve an answer.

Color of Object(s):

Full Description & Details

While driving west bound on the 118 freeway in Chatsworth into Simi Valley I saw a large fireball fly over the San Fernando Valley from the east to west. I was very low and I was sure it was going to hit the mountain where Rocketdyne is located. It didn't crash and I thought I would see Simi Valley on fire after I crested the hill into the valley.

No fire.

The fireball was as big as or a little bigger than a full moon. It was orange around the ball and had a long tail of blue green sparks that twinkled as they blinked out. It was very bright and it lit the inside of my SUV. They were no other cars around me for about a half mile...

This took place in Mid Oct. 1995. I know for sure because a few days later I broke out in a chicken pox’s like rash all over my body that lasted for 4 days and I went to a doctor for a blood test.

A few days after this fireball event there was a bright beam of light shooting high into the sky from the far end of Simi Valley. This beam could be seen from 35 miles away and was much brighter than the spot light on top of the Lexor in Las Vegas.

I saw it from Hollywood as I drove home from work around 10PM.

This beam was blue white and went up maybe five miles and didn't seem to disperse.

Laser like.

As I crested the Simi Hill on the 118 freeway, I could see the whole west end of an area lit up like daylight, so bright I could not make out the surfaces of the mountain sides surrounding the source.

I picked up my friend and we drove to an undeveloped area of Simi Valley about 2 miles from the Reagan Library. There was a line of cars waiting their turns to ask this guy what’s up.

There was a fire road being blocked by a unmarked jeep, no tags, no logos, with an unmarked driver. No badge, no logos, no patches on his jacket. The guy told us it was a movie being filmed. He didn’t know anything about the film or the production company or who hired him. He was wearing a gun.

We left, but on the weekend I went back up there to check it out.

I found a large area of about 50 by 50 square covered by small crystal white rocks.

A large gouge in the fresh dirt and a large burned area and a cows and a horse. There was a sign on a fence surrounding the area that said “No trespassing 24 hour surveillance”. But on the fire road there was a sign that was weird. It has International Security Agency, AMSEC. With the great seal of the USA as the Logo.

Later I looked up AMSEC and found that they were owned by SAIC. SAIC makes spy satellites.

Why would AMSEC/SAIC be guarding grass, dirt a horse and a cow?

There is an SUV far up on a hill with a guy watching me as I video taped the area.

Could these two events be related? A crash site of a UFO? A beacon signal being sent back into space by the craft?

There were no film permits filed at the Simi Valley City Hall.

Other Comments

I have images from the video tape of the crash site. No images from the fireball.

I have tried to find other people who saw the beam of light and I've talked to others who saw a fireball in the same area one year later near Rocketdyne.

Full Description & Details

Walking down road through marshland to start early shift at work. Sky at high altitude was just starting to change to a dark blue and I could see the traffic going into Heathrow airport also at high altitude as Heathrow is 20 miles west of this location. As I obsrved this and was enjoying the dawn a large triangular object passed across the road just in front of me. I shook my head and looked again and it was still there. It moved as an airship would, slowly and with no noise at all. I would say it was at no more than a few hundred feet. I tried to make out any detail on the underside but this was difficult as it appeared to be matt black and I was also blinded by the bright orange/red lights one on each of the "wings". I did notice that these light where not at the very end of the wings but on the underside. As I watched it vanish into the dark it appeared to be flying in a lazy arc turning south over an area of east London known as Leytonstone.

Remember the date well as its my mothers birthday. Looked at many stealth aircraft photographs since but I cant get a match with what I saw as it was a perfect triangle. I am sure though that this is some form of stealth from our friends across the Atlantic!

Neighbor knocked on door yelling come see this thing hovering above the Reynolds aluminum plant down at the end of the block ! Us and several other neighbors watched the ufo 50 feet from us , hovering with lights at the top and windows, we saw a figure waving from the top area, it hovered approx 15-20 minutes shot out at a 45 degree angle and then straight up at an incredible speed! Then after it was gone we discovered it was hovering above a power transformer thing fenced in that was smoking after the ufo left ! No one ever talked about it again on our block.

Ive seen ufos since out here in the country, saw one land in a field one night and I got out of my truck and shut it off to see this thing, it was on the ground with pulsing lights, it must have seen us because it took of slowly and moved when ever we would try to get somewhere closer to see it, it would go behind some trees or hill.

Full Description & Details

My wife and I had gone to some friends' dinner party in the Heights neighborhood of Houston, TX one afternoon around Memorial Day, if I remember correctly; it's been about 17 years, but it wasn’t yet oppressively hot, so it must have been very early in summer. We were all in the backyard while the food was cooking; around a quarter to six in the evening, one of the guests, who was lying in a hammock behind me called my attention to something in the sky that he'd been observing for some moments.

"What do you think those are?" he asked. I looked up and noticed some very bright orange lights, the color of hot coals when blown upon; they seemed to be round and not extremely large, but it’s hard to estimate their size. There was a light scattering of high cirrus or cirrostratus clouds at the time, and these lights gave the appearance of being well beyond them, so they must have been at a fairly high altitude. As I watched for a few moments, I estimated about 12-15 of these objects; I can't say exactly how many there were because of the amount of time that has passed and because of the fact that some of the objects moved around while others appeared stationary and sometimes some of them were briefly obscured by the cirrus clouds. I quickly called the attention of the other guests to these objects. There were perhaps a dozen of us present at the time and everyone looked up to watch this odd spectacle.

It was quite unlike anything any of us had ever witnessed before. While four of the objects appeared to maintain a steady position the others would suddenly move and stop again just as suddenly. The movements didn't appear to be random but rather to form patterns between the moving objects and with the stationary objects, which themselves formed a sort of quadrangle. The moving objects would sometimes move separately and sometimes by two’s or three’s together; they would form polygonal shapes among themselves, and one vertex of these polygons would itself form a triangle with a side of the stationary quadrangle. The movements would start and stop suddenly without any other evidence of propulsion, such as smoke or vapor trails, etc. The movements themselves appeared very leisurely, but considering the altitude that these objects seemed to be at, the distance covered must have been considerable, as these objects occupied perhaps half of the sky overhead for a good 12-15 minutes. Some of the guests watched them for a few moments and then lost interest, while others of them watched them until they moved off out of sight. Finally about 6:00 pm, the majority of these objects, including the apparently stationary center of the group moved off out of view to one side of the side of the sky while the remaining three moved off in the opposite direction; I’m afraid it’s been too long to confidently state which compass directions those would have been. Their departing motion seemed to be just as unhurried as their “maneuvering” had been.

Just in case anyone’s wondering, some of the guests had been drinking alcohol (it was a Texas barbecue, after all), but I myself was a confirmed teetotaler at the time. I can categorically state that these objects, whatever they might have been, were neither weather balloons, secret military test aircraft, Venus, Jupiter, swamp gas or any of the other claims with which such sightings are typically written off. Their manner of sudden motion, sudden stopping and subsequent motionlessness were inconsistent with any known system of craft propulsion, and I find that it stretches credibility to the breaking point to suggest that such methods of propulsion might have been developed in secret without any hint of such a technological advance leaking out at some point. We did not report the sighting to any authorities – what would be the point? Nor did we ever hear of any subsequent corroboration by any other witnesses, or at least none that my wife or I knew of.

Full Description & Details

I have read most UFO reports and encounters but none compare to the experience my wife and I had in the Santa Clarita Valley.

This happened in 1978 but it is something you cannot easily forget and led to me reading and researching all I can find on the subject.

We are not at shy about speaking about it. We were lucky to see what we saw and openly speak about it.

I only wish that we could go through a hypnosis to repeat the experience. Perhaps you can help us on this.

It was a warm summer Friday night and I was standing on the upper deck of the swimming pool, brushing the sides with a long pole and brush attached to it. The pool lights were on. Our kids, were planning to swim the next morning and I wanted the pool clean. My wife and kids were watching television approximately 40 feet from were I stood. It was around 9:30 PM.

As I moved my hands upwards to grab the upper end of the pole something caught my vision. It was a craft approaching at a low altitude perhaps a block away. It had lights on the front portion that clearly did not look like a helicopter. We were used to seeing Sheriff helicopters patrolling over our neighborhood, often flying low or hovering over our pool area to get glances of my wife and her friends laying out. We often waved them off using one finger.

I kept looking at the approaching craft and then realized it was not a helicopter but something very different. I ran to our back door and yelled at my wife and kids to come and see what I was seeing. Only my wife got out and by that time the craft was right above our pool area stationed there. It seemed as if it floated and had a slight wobble as if it were caught in a slight wind.

The craft was no higher than 60 feet above us. It was metallic shiny solid and shaped as those you see in movies. It had a upper dome with windows around it. The body was one solid piece, no obvious connectors. It had ski like device in the upper front but not centered, so it may have been some form of docking device because it was too far forward. I later tried to draw the angles and design of the ski like device and was unsuccessful. I remember that it was a very strange angle and design.

The craft had a window jut bellow the front leading edge of the saucer shape. That window was at least 4 X 8 feet long. We could see bluish/orange glow inside but no occupants. The center of the craft was concave and two rectangular shaped objects were inside the concave area. The height of the craft was the equivalent of a 1 1/2 story house and with a total diameter of approximately 75-80 feet.

The craft tilted forward and downwards and we could see the upper section and could tell the light on top was not reflecting from out swimming pool lights but that it came from crafts skin since there were no other visible lights other than those in the very front or leading edge of saucer shape. I think this is why people report seeing glowing crafts.

My wife, Gloria, kept repeating "oh my god" over and over. I was fixated on details and design. I have to admit that I was somewhat scared but almost frozen staring at something that was not supposed to be there. Like seeing a Greyhound Bus floating over your pool.

The craft was over our house for approximately 30-45 seconds. Afterwards it resumed moving Southeast at about 30-40 MPH and at the same altitude. It never made a sound. I jumped on a 6 foot wall to continue seeing for approximately 3-4 miles.

I told my wife not to speak to go inside draw what she could and then compare notes.

My background includes a Certificate in Group Propulsion Systems. I attended Northrop Institute of Technology planning to be an Aeronautical Engineer but then switched to business. I served as an executive in several Fortune 500 computer companies and was cofounder of two companies. One of my companies had substantial clients in Europe including Kuwait Petroleum International retail operations, Bell South, and software joint ventures in India. I consider myself a serious person who takes this subject very seriously.

I am fully convinced that world governments, including ours, knows very well of the presence of extra-terrestrial visitors to our planet but are afraid to share this with the public.

Full Description & Details

It was late in the afternoon on the day of the first landing of the space shuttle Columbia. I was a stringer for NBC news and shot the landing from the dry lake bed.

I left Edwards Air Force Base and headed back to the San Joaquin Valley on Highway 99.

Late in the afternoon, I saw something that looked to be a dark spot on the sun.

I pulled over and got out my binoculars. The sun was too bright, so I waited till the sun started to set. Soon, the dust from the earth allowed my binoculars to see what cannot be anything but UFO’s.

First there was the large round ship that I could see with my naked eye and gave me the reason to pull over, (thinking it was a sunspot). When I looked below the large ship, I saw six smaller ships lined up three in a row, like on a dice, all at 45 degree angles. Next to these “dots” was a long dark bar (like a pencil) that was twice the length of the large sun spot ship. All these items were stationary is space between earth and the sun. I did an experiment to see if I was just seeing things. I positioned myself in front of distant telephone poles and placed the UFO’s directly behind them. I watched as the group slowly dropped at the same rate as the sun. They started above the telephone wires and as the sun set they ended up below the telephone wires till they all sunk into the horizon.

These things had to be huge since they were not even close to being on earth and dropped into the horizon at the same rate of the sun.

I am amazed to this day, that no one has reported this and if they have, I would sure like to know about it.

Thank you,
