Full Description & Details

I moved back to Clarksville Iowa in the summer of 1994 where I ended up staying with a friend. My friend's sister, (name withheld), early one morning ran up to the east window from the living room and yelled, "What the f*** is that?" And she ran outside. I went to the window and saw what I thought was a police car, a very odd thing to see in a town of less than two-thousand people at 3am. I followed her outside and we watched.

It was immediately apparent that the object was in the air and was moving closer. It flashed red and white, and at times was hard to look at. At this point my thought was that instead of a police car it must be a helicopter or airplane flying very, very low directly toward us. Once past the trees we could see it clearly.

The object was red light on top, blue light on the bottom, white wispy flashes of light around the outside circumference in a ring parallel to the ground. The white flashes of light were evenly distributed equatorially, and seemed to rotate in a random way. The rotation of the white lights was similar to how a wheel looks when captured on film in a movie. All of the light seemed to be a causation of the distortion around it, and the mechanical part was only faintly visible. The best way that I can describe the "field" around the craft would be like looking into a spinning ball of glass. The object made no sound at all, and hovered along as you would expect a helicopter to fly. The field around the object seemed to be spinning, as for the parts inside, I really can’t say for sure. It was hard to tell the size from the ground. I estimate its size was 7.5 meters (25 feet) internally, and the field around it possibly 12 or more meters(40 feet.) I guess its speed was near 50-60 KPH (30-40 MPH). The altitude must have been close to 100 meters (100 yards), and closest point directly to it through the air near 150 meters (150 yards). The air was clear and it took about 5 minutes for the object to disappear behind the trees of Herry Woods State Park. Its path from when we first saw it was in a smooth arch from the east to the south.

Approximated flight path:

The best document that I’ve read describing what it may have been:

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/ufophysics/microprop.htm

I believe the date was the 16th of January 1995, and it was approximately 3 AM. Overall my impression was that it was something of great power and control. Logic tells me that anything that has the power to warp light around it is dangerously powerful. This feeling could have been my adrenal gland; an emotional response to the "magic."

Other Comments

I would like to find time to create an animation digitally that is a near to what we saw as possible. We didn’t have a camera with us that night.

Full Description & Details

My brother, fiancee and myself had only been in New Mexico for a couple of hours. We decided to camp out (sleep in car) at one of our usual stomping grounds outside of Carlsbad, headed towards Dark Canyon. It is just an old gravel pit where we do a lot of target shooting and so on.

We sat in the car for a while, trying to get comfortable after a 12 hour drive. We had not been there for very long when the first craft came into view.

It was a pretty large object, and at first glance resembled a helicopter with very bright white spotlights pointing in all directions. It hovered slowly in one area for several minutes. We thought whoever was manning it had surely seen us, and they probably did. It moved slowly towards our position, moving only a few hundred feet in a matter of minutes.

At its closest point, I estimate that it was no farther from us than 200 yards, maximum. We had a pretty good view of it, the only obstruction of sight being the lights on the craft itself. We had the windows down, listening for any sound from the craft. It was silent. It was obviously not any kind of helicopter or conventional airplane.

After a few more minutes of slow movement in front of us, it finally picked up some speed and began flying to the right side of our field of view, over a small hill, and then disappeared. We looked for the lights but found nothing. We assumed that it must have seen us and decided to leave the area with the lights off. It was no more than 150 feet above the ground the entire time it was in view.

We were thrilled to have seen it so well and of course happy to be unharmed, as close as it had come. We talked about it for a few minutes with no more activity until we noticed a group of three small red lights in the distance, at least a mile away and possibly several miles. The lights moved together. It looked as though they were lights on a single craft. After a few minutes of 'normal' movement, the lights began to pull away from each other. I estimate that they had moved at least a half mile or more from each other. Each light began doing different things.

Around this time I remembered that I had brought binoculars and a camera. The camera is an inexpensive HP 318 with a viewing screen to check the pictures after you take them. Unfortunately, these small lights did not show up at all, and sadly we had not thought to try to photograph the first craft which surely was close and bright enough to have provided hard results if photographed.

The red lights would move in the shape of circles, do zig zags through the sky, stop completely, and then do more random movements. All of this was done at incredible speed, certainly not like anything the government has made public. I cannot describe the speed, other than to say what they were doing was astonishing.

After flying around like this, they would meet up again and reform their original shape and move together, only to separate and move individually again in these strange manoeuvres, then join again. This event repeated itself numerous times.

When the objects rejoined, they would move so fast towards each other that you would expect them to collide, but they would come to a dead stop every time, like thay had just hit an invisible wall.

The lights finally moved farther away until we could not see them anymore.

This entire event lasted near an hour.

Of course we stayed awake for a while more expecting (hoping) to witness more. No luck- that was all for the night.

Since that time, I have found one photo online from someone in New Mexico who managed to photograph the red lights. Different place, different time- similar description of events, although the person says that he saw 4 of the red lights, and we only saw 3.

I have spent a lot of time in New Mexico including years of living there. I have seen a lot of similar objects, but these were by far the most impressive and obvious, and the only ones that styed in sight for more than a few seconds or a couple of minutes.

Full Description & Details

I was on flightline watch while in the U.S. Navy at NAS Norfolk, Va. I noticed a craft hovering over the runway approximately 1/2 mile away at an altitude of less than 500 feet. It "jinked" side to side approximately four times the diameter of the ship. It had a perimeter of lights around the craft, with a large bluish light coming from a circular opening on bottom of craft half the diameter of the ship. It also had what appeared to be a red blinking anticollision light on the top, (which is puzzling to me). I was about to call it in on my radio after determining that it was not a helicopter or vertical take-off aircraft. I thought it might be a spy craft of some sort until it speed away at near or at the speed of light. It seemed to stretch light as it departed horizontally over the horizon. I jumped to my feet expecting to see an explosion in the tree line. That is when it dawned on me that it had gone over the horizon and that it could not be of this world. Whoever designed it knew allot more about physics than we do. It was drawn like a magnet silently without ever breaking the sound barrier! I thought about telling others but was afraid of repercussions. I noticed that within thirty minutes three Navy radar planes (E-2's) were launched and went in different headings so I think someone in the tower probably saw it too.

Full Description & Details

I was very young, definately pre-school age. One late evening I found myself surrounded by "boy scouts" escorting me to a feild near my home. They were about my size in height. The "boy scouts" had a on uniforms of a sort but I asked them why they were not wearing their boy scout hats. They, or one, responded "We don't wear hats." When we got to the field I found myself in a circle of beaming lights or poles or something. I looked directly above me and saw a large disk shaped object hovering and silent. The object had colorful lights on its outer rim. I asked, "what's that?" and one of the "boy scouts" said it is a "helicopter." I said, "it doesn't look like a helicopter."

That is all I remember. I told mom and dad about it. They didn't think much of my vivid experience. Mom later told me that one morning when we lived in this town she found me with my pajams on backwards. We moved from that town before I started first grade. I remember asking mom why we were moving and she said "There are too many strange things happening here." I recall several odd experiences when we lived there that are difficult to explain here. I am certain this was not a dream.

Other Comments

In approximately 1993 I was reading a book written by a Harvard educated psychiatrist who won a Nobel prize for his work (I don't exactly recall the author's name, maybe John Mack). It was a big book that explored possible meanings of UFO sightings, abductions, etc. including philosophical implications. There was a section of the book where the author writes of interviewing "thousands" of people with very similar experience as I describe above. I recall that there was a "coupon" near the back of the book that asked if a reader had a "similar boy scout" experience to please respond. I did not respond. Oddly, after I read that part in the book, I received a phone call from my younger brother and learned that my dad had died. I thought reading the book and my dad's death were somehow connected, not purely coincidental.

Full Description & Details

Attached photograph was taken just over a couple of weeks ago in the Sooke area of Vancouver Island. It was taken by me using a Nikon Coolpix 5700. I saw nothing in the sky when I took it, in fact it only came to light when I uploaded the photographs to my laptop later in the day. It was one of a group of photographs I took within a five or so minute period (almost a panorama of the Becher bay area) It appears in none of the other photographs. My wife and kids were with me at the time. They saw nothing either. It was the middle of the day. I thought it could be a bug on the lens but it somehow appears to have a sort of depth of field, and focus is in line with surrounding trees, clouds etc. It is not a bird, even at this quality of image this camera can pick out a seagull at 400 ft!

I have only had the camera a month but as we spent the month on holiday in BC I shot around 700 pictures no other photo displays anything like this so I am guessing it is not a lens fault. I don't knoe if you have any special equipment for sharpening images but would be interested in what you think? I have all the other shots taken either side of this one. If it is not a bug, it is definitely not a plane or helicopter. This has to be one of the most tranquil places on the planet aside from the odd floatplane.

Look forward to hearing from you when you have a chance to look at it. (I am sending this to you as I ran a search on the net and read with interest the case of

the Kelsey Bay picture.)

Full Description & Details

I was driving to work to Jacksonville Fire station at 6:30AM after moving to Nahunta Georgia Pending retirement after 27 years with the city of Jax Fire Dept. I had to drive the first 30 miles through deserted road to the Florida line, The first sign of civalization,I was about half way when I saw a row of lights at tree top level ,There were about 30,or 40 lights about 10 feet apart and from the ground appeared to be about 2 ft wide and 3 ft high. They glowed like a old farm house shaded window that had turned yellow. The lights(if the were lights) appeared to be in a straight line.I had to lean forward and look up through the front window to see them. So I stopped opened the door of my truck, Stepped out with my left foot only and looking to my right over the truck I saw this gigantic vehicle allmost overhead.It was so dark I almost could not see where the trees left off and the vechicle began.Thats when I became extreamly concerned when I realized it was not one of ours.I then had the overwelming urge to"Get out of the area". Thats all my mind could think was (Get out of the area)So I did.When I got to the fire station. They said they didn't expect me to be there today since a large Huriccane was coming ashore at Cedar Keys, So I said I'll take a sick day and go home. Upon returning to the sight 1HR or so later, There was nothing there. I haven't told many people ,since having seen one from 75ft away and of that size NOBODY would beveive me anyway.

Full Description & Details

Driving south on farm-to-market road 1454 from just west of Plainview, Tx. to Hale Center, Tx., I noticed a large glowing object to the west. I watched for about one and a half minutes until view was obscured by trees at a farmhouse near the road. When past the trees, the object had moved closer to the road, and seemed to be a bit lower. It appeared that the "saucer" shaped object was rotating, but this effect may have been caused by the lights going around the circumference. The lights appeared to change colors (or rotated). This part of the sighting (fairly close) only lasted a matter of seconds, and then the object left. When the object took off, it made a 90 degree angle (it was going east, then turned sharply south) and was gone in less than a second. It moved so fast that there was a "trail of light" left in the sky. This was observed by me and the other occupant of the vehicle, and later confirmed (to some degree, although the other witnesses weren't as close) by three other people.

Full Description & Details

I was on the net until 2:30am. I went outside and noticed an orange light that I assumed to be a house light on the hill across from the hill I live on. For some reason I watched this light for a few seconds and it began to move slowly. I thought it was a person with a light. It then rose into the air and began to fly in a curious repeating pattern, a triangular pattern, slightly erratic. I thought someone had a device on a string or something. After about a half-hour the object switched on a twin bank of lights, which revealed itself to be a saucer shaped craft. The lights only came on for a couple of seconds and they only were turned on several times.

After around an hour, the craft reduced the intensity of the orange light and descended and stopped moving. I phoned my son in California to tell him what I was watching and a friend in Perth. I thought of phoning friends here but I was uncertain if the craft would remain for any length of time and the hour was very late, wish I had called some friends.

While the first object was still and dim, I watched what looked like a star rise over the peninsula from the ocean side of the hill. This white starlike object then floated over towards the first craft and stopped above it. It then proceeded to move to the ocean side of the hill where the first craft was and when they looked to be out of the line of sight of one another, they began a series of totally synchronised movements, almost like a perfect dance.

The second white object was rectangular and self-effulgent. It then moved over the sea and then flew back to the hill again.

I resolved to stay watching until sunrise, but a rainstorm blew in and they were gone when the clouds passed.

Full Description & Details

A friend, Barry Brock(one year older(15) than myself), and I were reclining on a lawn, discussing the infinity of space and the stars when, without warning, we were sucked up by a powerful energy, into a room (inclosure) that had a huge window(?) through which we looking out at a dense star cluster. My intuition, then and now, was that we were at a great distance from planet Earth and that added to my fear.

My next recollection is that I commented to him about the extreme bright clearity of the stars and their numbers, and he merely replied with a , "Yeah!". ( I knew nothing about astronomy and star clusters at that time.) What followed was lost from my memory for many years, but what I did remember within the next few days, following the abduction, was my friend screaming, "How do we get back?"

I thought I knew and started to say something but, realizing I didn't truly know how to return to Earth, hung my head and said, "I don't know."

Barry began to scream and I suddenly felt a powerful sucking energy pulling me through space( the time of travel felt like a matter of only 2 to 4 secounds), back to the place we had been on the lawn. I'm not sure if we returned to the supine position we had been in when taken or replaced in a standing position, because we both instantly ran, screaming in terror, out into the center of the street in front of the lawn. Barry grabbed the sides of his head with his hands and started to jump(hop) up and down shouting, "I've lost my mind, I've lost my mind."

His behavior was so abnormal ( for his personality) that it distracted me from my effort to recall what had just happened to us( and the memory was slipping quickly away). I hollered at him that we should get away from the spot and we both, terrified, began to rapidly walk up the center of the street toward our homes.

We were back, thank God, and I began to try and solidify that fact by commenting on how sweet the warm honeysuckle scented air was and how beautiful the summer night was. But then I noticed that I was rapidly forgetting about the horrific event that had just ended to us, so I said to Barry, "What happened to us.....I'm forgetting....what...?"

But he screamed at me to shut up. I said, "But I want to know what you remember?"

Again, he screamed(louder) "shut up!"

We continued to walk in silence, for about a minute, and as we approached the intersection where we would both turn left toward or homes, I again began to ask him about the freaky event, which caused him to quickly turn left to go down an alley and get away from me, and my questioning. Weeks after the abduction, and several times in the following years, I again tried to get him to talk about it, but he would always quickly walk away as I began to broach the subject. (Once I did get him to listen to what I had been able to recall and his only comment was, "Is that all you remember?" I said,"Yes, what do you recall?" which caused him to get up and walk away without responding.)

I am now 62 years of age, and it was only 2 years ago that I recalled a very critical part of my abduction with my friend. I was lying on my bed, here in northern Thailand, andI was recalling how Barry was screaming and how the volume and tone of the scream rose at one point, and I recalled thinking, "Barry was rasied in a non-religious family and I was a Catholic, so he is totally freaked by this tall alien, with wraparound black eyes, walking slowly up to me while I'm trying to send this creature loving energy from my heart since my religion had tought me that things like angles( and other worldly beings existed). As I recalled this event, it rapidly began to sink back deep into my subconscious, but this time I caught it and realized that it had risen into consciousness on many occasions before only to be instantly forgotten.

I reran the memory through my head so many times that I then began to recall my terrifing abductions that followed that summer and the next few years. At one point, I thought that I was going to lose my mind but I found that the easiest way to avoid madness was to just forget about the abductions as quickly as possible. Plus, it seems that the aliens erase the memories with a high success rate.

There are many more details to my abductions, and the trip with Barry (whom I've tried to locate in the past 2 years without success), but I just don't have the time or a good reason now. Perhaps I'll write more if I hear from your org.
