Full Description & Details
It was hot that night. My roommate and I drove up to the mountains to get away from the heat. He knew of a spot where we could park and have a great view of the city below. I was new in town having recently came from Illinois. We found the spot and parked the car and sat down on some rocks or tree stumps. It was a clear night. I'm thinking we were maybe 5,000 feet up ? We were sitting on the north ridge facing south. Downtown was to the west of us. East was wide open space. We were sitting straight across of the very edge of the east outskirts of town. We was not there very long before my friend tried to point something out to me. It was a bright white light coming in from the east very slowly. It was lower than we were traveling at about 40mph? It had a twinkle to it sort of like a star. We watched as it moved slowly toward town. It made no sound, but we were far away. Since it was moving so slow we thought it was a helicopter. We knew that the police had copters. We had no clue what we are looking at. Then it stopped moving. We wert talking. Our eyes were glued to this thing. It stopped between the east side of town and downtown. It sat there for a few seconds then it did something that made my jaw drop. It went straight up a bit then back down as fast as you can blink an eye. But is was not done yet. It then did a zig-zag movement just as quick as the up and down only it moved further. I felt like I was spying on something that I was not supposed to be looking at. Then came the encore. It just went from a dead stop to warp speed, faster than warp speed. It went east the way it came wide open sky as far as the eye can see. My neck snapped to the left as I tried to follow it with my eyes. It vanished. How can something move so fast and disappear into a sky that was so huge. That's it. This happened 36 years ago 1979 I am now 58.

I don't believe in little green men. But I DO believe in unidentified flying objects. I did not give it much thought before this.
