Full Description & Details
My husband and I were traveling home on Interstate 5 in California, headed back to Marin Country from a trip to Los Angeles. We were in Central California when I sighted the object. It was a clear night, full dark. 9 or 10pm. I looked out my window and saw an apple green orb. It glowed but did not have a haze or halo around it. No other colors. No lights, no pulsing or flashing. No sound.
I was in pure awe. I remember looking to our left and behind to see if there was a truck with running lights or a sign that might be reflecting light on my window. Nothing. I also checked our dash but our dash was lit by red lights. I looked back at the window and leaned up against the glass. It was definitely there. Definitely physical. I have to stress that this was extremely comforting. I've always wondered if I was MADE to feel that way. I felt happy. I watched the orb for a few more moments. Slowly, it rose to about 100 feet in the sky and began to move forward very slowly, in the direction we were traveling. Then, suddenly, it shot forward from our right to the center of our windshield, toward the horizon and out of sight. I'd estimate the speed went from 5 mph to 1500 mph.
I finally spoke to my husband and asked him if he'd seen it. He said no. What? It shot right across our view. I also looked behind us to see if cars behind us had pulled off the road to look. There were a few cars a couple hundred yards behind us. They were driving normally.
be explained as any conventional man-made or natural
I've wondered if something from an air force base could have been being tested. But, why would we make a craft round and glowing green? I can't explain it.
I was in my twenties at the time of the first sighting, in my forties at the time of the second. Middle class, employed, healthy, divorced. I am spiritual but not religious. I am educated and intelligent. I'm interested in Biology, Planetology, and Geology. These interests pre-existed the sightings and continue. I don't belong to particular groups with regard to space or UFO's. I did attend a meeting of the Disclosure Project at the Masonic Hall in San Francisco in 1999 or 2000. I was not shocked by what I heard. Only dismayed at the level of apparent coverup by governments.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Before the sighting, I was open to the possibility but undecided either way. I did feel, however, that it was very unlikely that Earth beings could be the only beings in this immense universe. After the sighting, I felt happy, comforted, and almost protective of the object. I waited years, deliberately to report it. If whatever was in that craft wanted to harm us, it had ample opportunity. I asked my husband if he saw it shoot right in front of our car and he said no. I've often wondered if I was "allowed" to see it. And, if that comfort was deliberately communicated to me.
I have had one sighting since that day. It was a cigar shaped object in bright daylight. It was very high up in the sky over Novato, Marin County, California. It was traveling east to west. The object moved forward. Stopped. Moved left, without turning. Stopped. Moved right, without turning. Stopped. Continued forward. As I watched it, I felt an incredible sense of trepidation. Unlike my first sighting, this was NOT a comfortable experience. I couldn't wait for it to get over my house and out of sight.
