UFO Sighting Report


May, 2003

Bright white round light growing larger as it seemed to move in my direction, eastward. As the light grew larger, I became frightened thinking the light might be some type of weapon. Then the light seemed to disappear in the mountain above Palm Springs, California.

Full Description & Details

I was riding my bike eastbound toward downtown Palm Springs, California just after dark. When I looked up, I saw a bright white round light which seemed to grow in size quickly, appearing to move eastbound in my direction. Strangely, the light seemed to evoke terror in me because I felt it might be some type of weapon or missile headed in my direction. I felt much relief when the bright light seemed to disappear in the mountains above Palm Springs, California.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
