Full Description & Details

190 Description: It was,, i believe, the summer of 1973,, my brother and i,, were born in california, my brother was born in 1959,,, i was born in 1060. we were told by our father, who was in the air force,, to look up to the sky,, when we were just little kids,, so we did,, and my dad, knowing about satalites, and falling stars, pointed these things out to us boys,, and we were fastenated by looking up to the night sky,, and identifying these objects, ,, he then worked for howard hughes aircraft, then locheed, then martin marieta, worked on the 2nd spacecraft that went to mars,, the vicking 2, my father went on to I.B.M, and finally retired from I.B.M. It was my fathers having us boys looking up into the night sky that led me to the sighting, that i wish i did'nt ever see,, myself and my brother studyed the night sky during the early 1970's colorado sky,,and we saw a lot of things we had never seen before, even though we had stuydied the skys back in california, and even out in the desert. But here in the mountains of colorado, we began seeing all sorts of things,, much more than the usual narural things like falling stars, and things like satalites, were much more obvious than in the city, but i remember this very clearly, i was waching a very distant,, dim pin point type of light,, moving across the sky, at a very slow, steady speed, and i said to my brother," there's another satalite" i am not sure if my brother ever even found this one,, it was allways very hard,, because of the vastness of the sky,, for either one of us to be able to find what each other were looking at,, sometimes, we would find the moving object that the other was looking at, sometimes,, not. this was the 1st one i saw,, that blew me away.. it was just a very distant piont of light, i mean, way up there, i thought it was a satalight, but it just changed direction, sharply,, like off maybe 40 degrees, no speed change, it was way ,, i mean WAY up there, moving very slowly across the sky,, just like a regular satalite,, but it made a instant,, 40, maybe 45 degree change in direction,, satalites do not do this,, i know,, because my father told us this is not possible, and i have never seen this before. my brother both witnessed this, and we knew ,, and have been waching the sky for years,, we made it a hobby, because of dad, this object made a sharp course redirection, it was like looking a line on a drafting board. its going this, way,,, then,, all of the sudden,, sharp angle, instantanious re direction off on some angle,, this did not scare me, i just couldny make any sense out of it. In that same year, i witnessed the scaryiest thing i have ever seen in life. i do not EVER want to see anything like ever again. 1 was, i believe, about 13 years old, at that time. my father was driving us up hwy 119, between golden colorado,. and the little town of blackhawk colorado,,,it was very late, after midnight,, my father was driving the "71" duster that he had at the time, my mom was in the passenger seat,, i was in the back seat,, on the right side,,and my brother was on the left side of me,, in the back seat. it was late,, we had visited some friends of my parents in denver,, and we were driving back up through the canyon, up hwy 119, and there are very steep mountains on each side,, and as a sky watcher, i was watching,, whenever i could see,, and this night, there was clear sky's ,, and as we turned a corner,, almost all the way home to blackhawk, a very large,, about the size of the moon, ball of light caught my eye, out of the left corner of my eye,, at first,, because it was so large,, and seemingly regular,, i thought it was the moon, but, it moved! and i looked at it,,, AND IT WAS NOT THE MOON!! it was some sort of gasious ball of light,, it overall was,, like i said,, if you just saw it out of the corner of your eye,, and didnt actually look right at it,, you would have easily have mistaken it for the moon. but i caught something moving within it,, so that is when i looked right at it,, it was not the moon, it was moving,, up,, then down,, then up,, then down a little farther, then up,, the drop a little farther, slowly desending,, behind the mountain top,, i got a very good look at it,, it had a " erie, gasious, moving center, it had a brighter outer ring, around it, it was solid,, you really had to look at it to disginguish these features. again,, i thought it was the moon,, once i noticed it was moving,i knew it was not. i yelled to my dad,, my mother,, and my brother,, " look mom,, look,, !!! because it was decending behind the mountain,, my mom saw it,, she said to my dad,,bill. there's something up there! my father was driving,, and we were winding up the canyon,, he did not see it. this is not some sort of flying saucer,,, this was some sort of gasious ball of light,, some sort of natural,, or maybe made man thing,, i once saw a program that said that the rocky mountain arsinal pumped a bouch of mustard gass, and all sorts of chemical waste into the ground, and the gasses from this are now comming up through the old mine shafts in the blackhawk,, central city area, as this area is litteraly is like swiss chese with these old mine shafts. i do not believe this theory,, my brother and i stuyded the skys after this,, although we were scared to even look at the sky for a long time. but we have never seen anything else since.

Full Description & Details

I was working at Yardley Country club building a practice tee along with my brother in-law. it was a clear day the sky was blue. Thats when I noticed this bright red sphere. At first I thought it was a planet, but the object was heading in our direction gatting closer it was heading due east. Well i continued to fly directly over us oh at maybe 30,000 ft. The funny thing was is that maybe 10,000 ft there were 2 fighter planes underneath it as if it was following it in the same direction. I asked my brother-inlaw if he was looking at the same object and he agreed that it was definetly unidetified because we could not recognized or have never seen such a sight. And that when it just continued east until it disappearedinto the horizon. It was amazing!!!!!!

It was the first time I ever saw a UFO not to say that it was alien in origin. I know that we don't have any known objects created by us at least known but I do know that it was be followed or escorted by a couple of our own planes.

white, rainbow, red

Full Description & Details

Heard sound of airplane overhead, looked up and noticed a bright object due East at 45 degrees elevation from Incline golf course (where kids were sledding) near Divot and Country Club. Object looked like a star, as bright as Venus, and moved very slowly. It was at least 25,000 feet of elevation because it was above the light high level clouds. Object moved about 15 degrees to the North at the same elevation over five minutes. No smoke or contrails were visible and the object did not diminish or increase in brightness. The object was silent. Color changed from pure white to rainbow, then red and back to white before it disappeared behind a cloud (cloud moved in front of object). Two other observers noticed the object appeared to be rotating. At times, the shape changed from a circle to an edge on view of a disk. Commercial aircraft were seen flying at lower elevation from object directly overhead while object was in sight. Our elevation at the observation point was 7,000 ft above sea level. Total time from first sighting to last was no more than 5 minutes.

Full Description & Details

My son and I were leaving my home to drive him back to his place at about 10:00pm on a cold winter night in early 2004. As we approached my car in the driveway my son was looking up at the sky and suddenly said to me "what the heck is that?"

I looked at him and looked up at the sky in the direction he was looking, which was straight overhead. We could hardly believe our eyes as we observed a grey metalic craft gliding through the air approximately one to two thousand feet overhead. We live in Brampton Ontario which is north west of Toronto. The craft was moving directly in the direction of Toronto and certainly passed directly over Pearson airport - formerly Toronto International Airport. It maintained a steady altitude so I knew it was not decending to the airport. As well, there were planes on approach to land at the airport that were coming in from the west and it was obvious that this craft was not following the fight path of the planes in the air. The plane going in for a landing had their normal flashing light blinking as they passed through the air. The craft we were observing had absolutely no visible lights of any kind.

The best description I can think to give of the shape of the craft is to compare it to the key on a computer keyboard which is the "curly bracket } ." It was almost a bird like shape with the point moving in the forward direction. It made absolutely no sound at all as it passed over us and went out of very in the distance. Both my son and I responded instinctively with amazement at what we were seeing and we both knew immediately that this was no ordinary air craft... we are convinced to this day that this was a ufo. It's the first time either one of us has had an experience like this.

Shape of Object(s)

round

Color of Object(s):

shiny metallic

Full Description & Details

I was driving home from work in Charlottesville, coming over Afton mountain on I64 heading to Waynesboro Virginia. When I was nearing top of mountain I noticed 5 contrails heading toward eachother from different directions. They were at such a height that I could only see the contrails, no planes. I thought they were going to hit eachother, one of them changed course & went around the area the other 4 were headed. when the planes/contrails got closer together, I noticed a small round metallic looking object about the size of a half a dime. It was moving really slow, almost hovering without a contrail. the sun was setting & the round object shimmered light a couple times, looked like the sun shining off of it. As I was going down the mountain, I lost sight of everything, the mountain was blocking my view. When I could see the area of sky again, the round object was gone & the planes/jets/contrails were leaving the area, flying along the blue ridge mountains heading south. The contrails were flying in 2 seperate pairs in formation leaving the area. the contrail that changed course right before the round object sighting looked like it got back on it's original flight path. The planes were at a height that I could only see the contrail, if the round object was at the same height, it had to be larger than the planes, because it was visible.

Full Description & Details

We were driving near Five Forks Road, in betwee Fayetteville, IL and New Athens IL when I looked up and saw a triangular object in the sky. The object had a green light on one corner, a white light on one corner, and a red light on the other corner, none were blinking. We pulled the car over and watched it, even rolled down the windows and it made no noise. It just sat there for app 3 minutes and then moved very slowly, and once it was above us, a large white bright light appeared and it zoomed off going toward Mascoutah, IL. When the large light appeared, the colored lights dissapeared and the smaller white light that was there to begin with started blinking. I'm not sure if it was a UFO or not but it looked absolutely nothing like an airplane or a helecoptor, and it was floating very low to the ground and looked almost too large to be an airplane.

Full Description & Details

We were heading towards Denver on interstate 70 when our headlights seem to bounce off this big chrome looking egg shaped craft which shot into view from the south, hovered briefly over the bridge thqat crosses over the interstate at Stratton Colorado. It then shot off to the north and into the night sky. The speed in which it traveled was the speed of light. My brother and I both know what we saw!

Nothing and nobody can ever tell me different. Including the government. They are the ones lying about the existants of aliens. And now I am a first hand witness of their trechery.
