Full Description & Details
I am a security at a private yacht club. I work the graveyard shift. I was a skeptic before I had my UFO experiences. I've seen this weird orange-reddish ball of light, at my work, more than 8 times in different areas of the night sky. At first glance, most people would think it's a bright star, but if you watch it you can see that it's actually moving, because the real stars behind it stay still. The first time I seen this UFO it was slowly moving above me, moving in one direction at slightly different speeds. It had a strange glow to it. I hurried to my guard shack & got my binoculars I focused them on the moon first, then I looked at the UFO. I was surprised to see that the light was changing form from oval shape to circle shape, it was kind of scary, at first, but interesting. I hid behind a tree to be on the safe side. After about 10 minutes or so it just disappeared, on the spot. The other times I seen it were simular, except I didn't have my binoculars, & it would be in different areas of the sky. About the seventh time I seen the UFO it did something different, something that made me get the chills. At first it was sitting still, then it started to move up slowly. At the same time it was moving up, it dropped a little orange-reddish light from the bigger light. As the little light fell it slowly disappeared & the bigger light stayed still getting brighter then dimmer, then it disappeared, as well. The last time I seen it was about 3 weeks ago 3/9-13/06. I don't remember exactly what day it was. This time it was far out in the stars, but still very bright. I had a 1 million candle power flashlight that I use for work. I attempted to try to communicate by shining my bright flashlight at the UFO. I did indeed get a response, because the UFO changed direction right after I shined my light at it. It started to turn towards my direction, I wasn't scaried this time because it was only 11:00pm. It was right above me, but very far in the stars. I had to bend my head back & look straight up in order to see it. It stayed, moving slowing, above me for about 10 to 15 minutes. It started blinking, then disappeared. I see planes, stars, helicoptors, satalites, & jets every night, & this thing is something very different. Something that I can't explain. A light, a bright orange-reddish light.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Before I kind of believed UFOs may be possible, because the universe is full of suns & planets (galaxies), but I did have some dout. Now I know UFOs are real, as real as you & me. I knew a lot about UFOs but have never seen one before. I didn't believe most of the information I learned, until now.
We are on EARTH. Earth is in a solar system. Our solar system is in a galaxy. The galaxy contains billions of solar systems. The galaxy is in the universe. The universe contains billions & billions of galaxies. The possibility of life in extremely high. Especially the fact that life exists on earth in extreme places never before thought to have life. Think about it.
