Full Description & Details

Hi, I'd like to pitch in my story also, if I may.

I was about 10 years old (1987) when it occured. Erie Pennsylvania. I may have been young, but believe me I saw something! Up till this moment I prefered to keep quiet about it in order to avoid people giving me an odd look. But while reading your articles I see, that I am not alone. It was one of those beautiful, sunny days. Not a cloud in the sky. I was in my backyard doing whatever kids do at that age I guess. Is the feeling that someone is watching familiar to you? I guess that feeling made me look up into the sky. At the same moment I noticed that I heard nothing, no birds, no children playing in the next door backyard, nothing, even the leaves on the trees seemed motionless. Everything was perfectly still, like as if time had stopped. I looked up and saw a metal, round ball-like object. It's flight path was similar to the path of a baseball just been hit into the sky. Except it could not have been a baseball. I can not tell the hight, but it seemed a far distance. It was heading straight toward the sky and stopped at one point while maintaning a rotation movement.There were no lights, no trails behind it. And what shocked me most was the silence. After a moment of glazing at the object I dashed towards the porch of our house, up stairs where we lived to call my parents. But when I got back, it was gone and the effect of silence gone also. Everything was just as before the sighting. I'm 27 today and I know that it was not my imagination that day, that had me believing all those years, I had seen something. I remember it, as if it had happened today.

Full Description & Details

WE WERE OUT MOOSE HUNTING/CALLING UP THE OPASQIA HILLS NEAR THE PAS AND HEARD NOTHING MOST OF THE NIGHT, WE DECIDED TO COME HOME AND WE SAID LETS GIVE IT ONE LAST SHOT AND STOP AT THE BORDER. WE STOPPED ABOUT A HALF MILE FROM THE MAIN ROAD DOWN A BACK ROAD, THE MOON WAS OUT AND SHINING BRIGHTLY NOT A CLOUD IN THE SKY. WE TURNED TO LOOK TOWARD THE SOUTH/EAST FROM OUR STANDPOINT AND WE SEEN TWO RED LIGHTS

AND WHAT LOOKED LIKE A BEAM OF RED LIGHT ATTACHING THE TWO. WE DIDN'T THINK NOTHING OF IT, TRYING TO IGNORE IT, I COULD'NT LET IT GO AND I SAID TO MY TWO BUDDIES "BOYS THERE'S NO COMMUNICATIONS TOWER OVER THERE AND YOU GUYS KNOW THAT" WHEN I LOOKED AGAIN THE TOP LIGHT AND THE BEAM HAD DISAPPEARED AND I TURNED TO THE GUYS AND SAID SOME OF THE LIGHTS ARE GONE AND ONLY ONE SMALL LIGHT IS LEFT. THEY TURNED AROUND AS I BROKE UP THERE DISCUSSION AND THEY SAID TO ME "OK MULDER" WAS KIND OF FUNNY AND WE WERE LAUGHING. WE LOOKED AGAIN AND IT SEEMED THE RED LIGHT WAS MOVING CLOSER AND CLOSER TOWARD US AND IT WAS. WE WERE KIND OF NERVOUS BUT ALSO CURIOUS OF WHAT THIS THING WAS AND WAS COMING YET EVEN CLOSER. I PULLED MY HIGH POWERED RIFLE WITH SCOPE TO SEE THIS THING EVEN CLOSER AND I COULD'NT BELIEVE MY EYES THAT WE WERE SEEING THIS SHIP AT SUCH A CLOSE RANGE , THE RANGE WAS APPROXIMATELY 1000 FEET AND WE COULD SEE THE SMALL DEAILS, TWO WINDOWS, GREEN/RED LIGHTS AT THE BOTTOM, THIS SHIP LOOKED LIKE A THIMBLE WITH STRIPES AND DIDN'T MAKE ANY SOUND WHAT SO EVER, I SWEAR I SEEN YELLOW LIGHT COMING OUT OF THE CRAFT THROUGH THE WINDOWS AND BELIEVE ME OR NOT "A HEAD" OF SOMTHING LOOKING OUT THROUGH THE WINDOW. I DIDN'T LIKE THE FEELING OF BEING WATCHED SO I SAID LETS GET OUT OF HERE GUYS, SO WE LEFT THE AREA AND WENT THE OTHER SIDE OFTHE ROAD . I KEPT WATCHING THE CRAFT AND IT DIDN'T GO VERY FAR PROBABLY ABOUT A HALF MILE FROM US AND IT HOVERED IN THAT ONE SPOT FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES AND WAS WATCHING US,THE EERIEST FEELING I EVER HAD IN MY LIFE, THE HAIRS ON THE BACK OF MY NECK WERE STANDING SO STRAIGHT OUT I COULD'NT PUSH THEM DOWN THEY JUST POPPED BACK UP. WE ALL DECIDED TO COME HOME AS WE WERE'NT ABOUT TO BE ANOTHER " FIRE IN THE SKY CASE "AND THAT SHIP FOLLOWED THE ROAD BACK TO THE PAS AND WAS FLYING ABOUT 200 FEET OFF THE GROUND AND ALWAYS THE SAME DISTANCE AHEAD OF US FOR ABOUT 15 MILES, WE WERE GOING TO SHOOT IT, BUT WE ALL DECIDED NOT TO AS JUST IN CASE IT SHOT BACK. THE CRAFT EVENTUALLY TOOK A DIFFERENT COURSE AFTER BRACKEN DAM AND SPED OFF TOWARDS YOUNG'S POINT SETTLEMENT. WE DIDN'T SAY MUCH AFTER THAT ABOUT WHAT WE SEEN, BUT STILL BOTHERS ME TODAY. THIS IS NOT THE ONLY TIME WE'VE SEEN LIGHTS, ONE EVERY FALL HUNT SINCE THEN AND WE'RE REALLY STARTING TO DISLIKE THIS AREA BUT IT SURE HAS ALOT OF "BIG WISE MOOSE" NOT DUMB AND EASY TO BAG.

Full Description & Details

When I was standing in line for a rollercoaster in a attraction park near Berkley CA and was a little bored by waiting so long, I observed little bit the sky. It was about 9:30 PM. I was taking a look at one of the first evening stars above the horizon of the pacific ocean. Not thinking much, this star which stand there for really more than 30 seconds just suddenly started to move slowly to the right (North up the coast) and accelerated very fast. I almost couldnt follow with the eyes at the end, as quick as it was. It couldnt have been a meteorid or comet, because it moved vertically without loosing any hight. As I am from Switzerland and was just visiting there for holiday, but knew that in CA/Mexico were told to be happen often, I was very astonished about this. The poeple standing around me in line, witnessed this happening with me together. It would be very interesting to find those poeple over this page again...

Full Description & Details

In the early summer of 1965, I think it was June, because we were on summer break- two friends and I watched a diisk 20-30 feet wide hover for 20 minutes at treetop level about two blocks away. We gauged the width of the disk by comparing it to the large tree it was near. Our ages were about 16, 14, and 13. We were sitting on the roof of the duplex that we were living in (they were sisters living on one side and I lived on the other). The disk glowed an orange color and there were what appeared to be thick lighted windows around the middle, although we did not see anything through them. We had a pair of those opera glasses-type binoculars that fold down like an old-fashioned cigarette case. The object was totally silent. It was a very quiet neighborhood, and we would have noticed a noise. When the aircraft departed, it did so at an amazing velocity; it did not seem to require time for acceleration. The craft was smoothe in its flight and totally silent. ONE OF THE MOST INTERESTING things about the aftermath of that night was that there was an article in the the Des Moines Register and Tribune the next morning about a number of U.F.O. sightings nationwide the previous night. In addition, one of the local radio stations (KIOA or KSO, I think) had a summer-long nightly program where people could call in their U.F.O sightings. I cannot find any record of that online, but my neighbors and I were on the roof almost nightly that summer listening to the radio show and looking for more U.F.O.'s. I saw at least one more that I vowed to remember--a U.F.O. that was flying at hundreds of miles an hour across the sky, high up, and without slowing down, went straight up at a right angle to its flight path. It was flying faster than any jet I had ever observed at the time. I would love to know if the Des Moines radio station kept any records of that "U.F.O. call-in" program, or if any of the old disc jockeys remember it.

Full Description & Details

This is so long ago- I'm 62- that the details really are foggy. What isn't obscured by time is the still absolutely vivid image of that flying saucer like craft fly silently out of that cloud right above our heads. My father, a career military man, saw it also. I was approximately 14 at the time and was standing on the steps as my parents were saying good bye to their relatives when some strange feeling caused me to look up...and there it was, right out of some cheesy sci -fi film, but very real none the less. My Dad, a hard headed type, would never have believed me, but I grabbed his sleeve and gestured for him to look up. He yelled" Oh shit" and we both ran around the house as it flew absolutely silently across a considerable expanse of open sky and then disappeared into another cloud bank. the image of that has haunted me all my life and has made me suspicious of all official pronouncements about just about anything. Something is going on, but there are those who don't want us to knowe. Ridicule is ther primary methodology, but I believe there running out of snide dismissals.
