Full Description & Details

This happened at midnight on new years eve on a pitch black night, no moon. I was with a friend heading to my house out in the country. The reason I'm certain of the time and date is that the radio was on and the radio host was making all the new years celebration noises with horns and stuff and yelling, happy new year. The year may be off, may have been 71 or 72. We were driving along and suddenly to our right out in a field this disk appeared. We could only see it because of a light that was on it came on. It was hovering out in this field between two tree tops about 60 yards away. As I said it was very dark and we could only see it because of this light. The light was a dark maroon thin band of light that seemed to circle the center of the disk. When the light was on we could see the shape of the disk against the black sky. This light was on for about 10 to 15 seconds and then went out. We were just about speechless after this happened, we were quite shocked at seeing this so close to us. We continued driving to my house which was about another 7 or 8 miles out in the country. When I parked the car in my drive way and we got out of the car the disk was hovering above us. We could'nt see it but we could hear it and by the sound of it, it was very close to us. What it sounded like was like a helicopter without the beats, a constant swirling sound. I was quite interested in it and was straining to see it in the darkness. My friend was quite frightened so I went into the house with her to help her calm down. I forgot to mention that the color of the craft looked like it was dark grey with the maroon band of light around it. I'm not real good with the computer yet or I would send along a drawing, but I can describe the general shape. I would estimate the size to be about 6 to 7 feet tall in the center of the disk and it had a very smooth looking surface that gradually tapered and thinned out to the outer edges. It was about 20 to 25 feet wide.

Full Description & Details

I was at the drive in outside of town watching STARWARS for the umteenth time. Saw a huge meteor falling just behind the screen it past the screen and "dead stopped" in mid air, the trailing tail FELL into the meteor! the meteor sat there and as the glow faded away I could see a grey saucer shaped thing with two lights one on each edge one red

one I think green the lights began to pulsate the thing sailed away slowly at the same height maybe 50-100 ft maybe less above the ground finally vanished in the distance. I never read about it or heard about it on th news but everyone at the drive in had to see it!!! The interesting thing is the lights were on steady until all the glow faded away and it did not move until the lights started to blink (red..green...red..green...etc) and the glow faded completely

Other Comments

I had seen many "things" ;formaton flying, large light appearing and disapearing slowly

and quickly, objects avoiding each other by making opposite ninety degree turns away from each other as they fly toward each other. I have seen "stars" that have been sitting still for a long time rapidly or slowly shoot away. Daylight cylinders that hover then rise rapidly away. lights that move close to the ocean casting light on the surface

but althou close are silent as they pass by. "stars" that rotate each other slowly

Full Description & Details

Stepped outside onto our patio and where there has never been lights near the horizon, saw twobright lights and there was a third ,just like them but more to the south. The direction I was looking was southwest. The two that were seemingly closer together just "vanished" and after several minutes another ball of light came into view with the one that I had mentioned was alone/ My husband brought out the spotting scope as seeing these lights was most unsusual. ( Other than appearing and disappearing there was no other obvious movement) With the spotting scope we were not able to bring them into focus --but the one we looked at seemed like a red sun--but very distant.

I must say that I am most remiss in not having taken a pictures of this very strange phenonmena. Additionally, in my 60 years, I have never seen anything like this. If there is a palusible reason for this occurence or if anyone else saw this, I would appreciate the information.

Just interested if others sawe same thing and if there is an explanation. I do not deny he possiblity that there is creditability to some sightings. In fact, I think it is narrow minded to believe that we are alone.

Full Description & Details

My girlfriend and I were standing on the balcony walkway in front of her apartment, which is on the fifth floor, and I saw two lights out over the beach. The lights were high up in the sky over the beach (I cant guess what altitude or distance) and they were red. They were equidistant from ach other and they moved in unison like they were on a string. I couldn't hear any jet or propellor engines, so I assumed that it was a blimp. The lights were completing a slow rotation of a complete circle, out over the beach, then on to land, over and behind the apartment complec, and then back out over the ocean. When the two lights flew close enough to the apartment building, I could see stars between the two lights and I concluded that they were definitely two separate craft. Everytime the the two lights got out over the ocean, the two separate red lights would blink, in unison, three times like this: red, red, red, .......and then they both went to bright white. After the bright white had started to fade, they went back to red and continued on their circle.

I haven't thought about this for a long time, but recently, I was watching a tv show about UFO's and I saw, on film, the exact same thing as I saw that night. So, apparently I wasn't the only one who thought that these lights were UFO's.

Full Description & Details

My childhood home was situated facing a chain link fence that bordered the HWY 35 W north , just south of the Diamond Lake Road exit. We had two largish windows facing the HWY.

At dusk one evening as the family was gathered in the livingroom , my mother noticed something out of the window that scared her more then I had ever seen fear in her either before the incident , or since. When we all went over to the windows to see for ourselves what it was , this is what we saw. It looked like the moon and took up about the same amount in the sky , but the light from it was different than that of the moon. It was an ultra bright , orangish, white light that was slightly obscurred by clouds. It did not have a perfect oval , disc , or round shape to it. It traveled quite slow , maybe 15 mph , but very hard to determine exactly of course. It is impossible for me to know how high up it was because at the time of the sighting I was about 4 or 5 years of age. Everything in the sky seemed like a million miles away to me. As this was one of my first memories that has stuck with me due to my mothers reaction to seeing this thing, I still believe my perception is a valid one.

From what I recall it came from the north west and veered due east which took this craft over the HWY and directly over our home. As it floated over our house , the power went out and watches stopped and a great feeling of a sort of "vacuum" or energy of some kind was in the air. Once this thing cleared our roof and floated beyond our backyard , we lost sight of it. Immediately after the disappearance of the craft , our power was restored. We watched this thing in all for about 10 or so minutes. It was most eerie and there was a strange feeling in the air.

I know what our family saw was not man made by any stretch of the imagination , therefore that confirms ( to me anyway) that I am not in my assessment , stretching mine.

Witness Background
