Full Description & Details

Driving home with my 9 yr old daughter. From no where, a object appeared to be directly over us. I stopped for a few minutes, we both saw it, and best of my recall neither of us said a word. As I said earlier this object was over us and appeared to be very close. It was circular, it had lights around the outer edge. It never moved, it was totally silent, it just hovered over. Nothing happened, but then I became very frightened and Probably broke all speed limits getting home.

I do want to say this. For years I never spoke of this, as I didn't want anyone to think I was nuts. Prior to this, I did not believe in such things. My daughter at the time was 9 years old. She never said anything to me afterwards. About 6-7 years later. I was in Chicago and I had the newspaper, probably the sun times. There was a page there with about 10 photo's of UFO's. My daughter was going to be in Chicago soon. I tore the page out of the paper, and I made a big mark on the back of the page of the UFO we had seen years prior. She came to Chicago and I showed her the picture of the UPO's sayig nothing to her except "does anything look familiar to you". she pointed to one, the one we both saw that night. Years later when she was married, she told me that she and her husband spotted somthing in the distance and was sure it was a UPO.

As of late, I am having dreams. It is about UFO in our cities with authorities here chasing after them. I have had a version of this for the last 3 days, and that is the reason that I looked up this site. I have never checked any oc these sites out before. I have a fear now and would like to know if there are groups to discuss my recent dreams.

Witness Background

I have been retired for 3 years. I just have a high school education. I was a finance manager/office manager in the home improvement business. I am not a person who goes around making up stories or bragging to anyone for any attention. I have always kept to myself and am basically a quiet person.

Full Description & Details

In broad daylight, at about 14.00 (CET) I saw five circular objects in a clear sunny sky, as I was standing on a city square in Amsterdam. The objects were coming from the north, from behind the houses, one by one at half minute to one-minute intervals. They were all of the same appearance:

- about one euro-cent coin held at arm's length in size;

- circular;

- bright white in color, but the light was not star-like i.e. there were no beams of light coming out of the circular shape. all light was perfectly contained within the circle. the best way to describe it would be to say that the light was COHERENT;

- a bright golden, saw toothed ring around the object. this bright golden light was again contained completely within the saw toothed shape of the ring;

- four object out of five sighted, were flying at relatively low apparent speed (approximately that of a passenger jet at cruising speed as observed from the ground). they were zigzagging along a straight line. the motion was jerky i.e. they made a very brief, barely noticeable stop at each point of their zigzag trajectory;

- one object, the third in order of appearance, flew very fast across the sky, ten or more times faster than the rest;

- there was a jet trail extending across the sky and nearly perpendicular to the object's direction of flight. the objects were clearly flying ABOVE that trail i.e. they flew higher than a passenger jet at cruising height (cca 33.000 ft).

- they all dissapeared in a distance, befor reaching the horizon, instead of going behind the horizon, which again sugests a very high altitude.

Other Comments

What strikes me the most about these three sightings is their grouping: I have never seen UFOs before, or since, although I have a long lasting interest in the subject, and I had been a keen amateur astronomer for a number of years as well. And then I had three incredible sightings within three weeks!

Full Description & Details

The same (type) objects like in the reported sighting for August 31.

The same location.

This time they came in from the zenith portion of the sky, from behind the roof of the building that I live in. They were flying direction east/ northeast. In the midst of what was a VERY FAST flight, without stopping or slowing down, the objects "flipped" and changed the flight formation from flying parallel to each other, to flying behind each other. They definitely DID NOT change formation by rotating about a common axis; i.e. their maneuvers were synchronized, but independent.

Apart from their color, shape and speed, another thing they had in common with the objects sighted on August 31, is the distinct impression that there was a net like structure to them. The sightings were admittedly to short to be certain about this kind of detail, and it was only after this second sighting that I decided it is relevant to mention.

After performing the described maneuver and changing the flight formation, the objects apparently disappeared from view; they blinked out as if they were lit from within, and somebody has switched off the lights.

Full Description & Details

August 31, 1997 at about 21.40 hours (CET), as I was standing on the balcony of my apartment, two objects suddenly appeared in my view. They were about 20 degrees above the horizon (east/ southeast) when I noticed them. The objects were pale yellow in color, and eye shaped. I also had an IMPRESSION that there was a net like structure over the surface of the objects. They flew in a formation, tip to tip, about one object length from each other. They were very fast: I could see a large portion of the sky, from the eastern horizon to the zenith; they flew from the point at which I noticed them, to the zenith, where they disappeared from my sight, in about 2,5 seconds or less.

Witness Background

a competed study of philosophy (no Ph.D.); currently working as a substitute teacher (theory of knowledge as main subject).

Other Comments

I have a long lasting interest in the subject going back 30 years. At the present, I'm mainly interested in projects related to educating the public on the subject of UFOs.

Personally, I believe UFOs to be of an intelligent (other than human) origin, although not necessarily extraterrestrial. In fact, the core UFO phenomenon is most likely to be more complex than that.

Full Description & Details



In June of 1977 I lived in a subburb of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada called Castlegreen Co-operative Housing. My friend and I were standing behind the 600 row of Castlegreen

at the edge of the center field tossing around rocks,etc. and basically wasting time before dinner. Some of the residents of the 600 row were outside working on their yards, barbequing and tending to their gardens. Their were only a few clouds in the sky off to the Southwest and they were slowly moving away to the north. The clouds had a mild hint of pink and grey to them which caused me to admire them for a second. I then noticed that one small area of the cloud cluster (the only one in the sky) was not moving along with the rest, it was staying stationary. I couldn't make out the full shape of the object at that point but I noticed that the object was reflecting the clouds like a mirror, which had camoflaged it until that point. My friend Andy looked at the sky in the direction to where my eyes were fixated. "What are you looking at?" I pointed to the left side of the cloud cluster and said, "Right there,..can you see it?' He looked for a second and then replied "No, what is it?" I told him to wait a second because the cloud cluster was going to be moving away from it in a few seconds. When the clouds drifted away, my friend and I both had the same verbal reaction "Whoaa." We watched the reflective object turn from the color of the clouds to the blue of the sky as it was exposed from the clouds and highlighted against the open sky. It sat motionless while we watched. The object was the general shape of a modern clothes iron without the handle on top of it. I would estimate that the object was at least 5 kilometers away and aprox. 1500 meters in the air. I estimate that it was about the size/mass of a standard duplex or two level barn. Andy immediately piped up, "Dad!!" and ran into his townhouse which we were standing right behind. Andy and his father both came out of the patio doors and out to the edge of the yard line. Andy's father examined the sky as I pointed in the direction of the object and Andy struggled to put on his glasses which he retreived while inside. Andy's father looked puzzled, said nothing and then went back inside. (I figured he was going inside to get someone else.) He returned with Andy's older sister and stated that he called his friend on the phone and told him to get a look at this thing. His friend from the 500 row arrived a few minutes later and other people from the 600 row had began to take notice. After the better part of ten or fifteen minutes, there must have been 12-15 people all observing this object and making their own conclusions as to what it was. I then said aloud "I think it's moving." Everyone became quite and stifled as we watched the object move very slowly across the sky toward the south. I don't believe it was propelling itself, it looked more like it was just drifting across the sky like a beach ball on water. We noticed that the point/nose of the object was now pointing in the direction it was drifting. It gradually started to pick up speed until it was evident it was begining to excel and propel itself. When the object was going at a modest rate of speed (aprox. 90 kilometers an hour) and was directly over the south end of the city it let out an incredible flash of light. The flash was pure white and very brilliant, like a gigantic distress flare. Everyone gasped and blurted their reactions "Jesus!", "Woaa!",

"Holy *%#*!" during the explosion.

Black smoke began billowing out from behind the flare as it moved across the sky and the flash began to subside. (The flash lasted about 5 seconds.) The flash died out and the object was still moving across the sky in the same direction. The object was now smaller, rounded, and totally black with a great deal of black smoke trailing out from behind it. The object continued to streak black smoke across the sky until it went out of view over Lake Superior aprox. 2 minutes later.

The small crowd began to gradually disband after the object went out of view.

As I walked over to the 900 cluster of housing (Where my family lived at the time.) I kept watching the black smoke in the sky fading. I told my father about what I had seen and took him onto the back deck so he could see the faint black smoke off in the distance.

My father was in the army years before and did conventional missile testing in WhiteSands, N.M. so I wanted his angle on this. My father dismissed it as a fallen satellite or a peice of space debris that had entered the atmosphere.

God bless him, but three things don't concurr with his deduction...

1. Why was it camoflaged or hiding in the only small batch of clouds in the entire sky?

2.Why did it stay stationary for so long and then begin to excellorate?

3.Why was there no mention of this in the media in the proceeding days to come?

It was evidently seen by many people in ThunderBay. To this day, every so often I hear someone out camping or fishing begin to tell the story about that sighting which was over 26 years ago and I usually finish the story for them.

Full Description & Details

I was out in the back garden at my parents house looking at the night sky. Immediately overhead I saw a bright light, a bit like a strobe. The object appeared to continue on its tracklike a satellite for about 5secs. It then changed course through 90 degrees and continued for approx 5 secs, then appeared to spiral out of sight.
