Dark grayish color, almost black. Sort of an oval shape but not oblong, more round. Blue and green lights that flashed around the side of the craft. Bright, white light on the front.

Size of Object(s)

relative size - about 2 feet across. actual size - I'm not sure. I'm not good with guessing measurements or distance. It was big but smaller than a football field.

Description of Area / Surroundings

It was an area off the highway just out of the city limits of Bremen, Ga. Nothing unusual in the surrounding area.

Full Description & Details

Driving down highway 78 at about 10 PM and saw a bright light moving toward my car. My mother was with me at the time. I thought the light seemed unusual so I turned around and followed it. It slowed down and I turned onto a small dirt road and drove about 100 feet and stopped. The craft was hovering just above the trees. I got out of the car to get a better look. There was no noise at all. It was a dark grayish color/almost black with blue and green lights that flashed around the middle portion of the craft. It was sort of an oval shape, but not oblong. It had what looked like windows along the side of the craft and they were lit from within. It hovered there for a few minutes then moved off toward the city where it stopped. A small red light came out of it and they moved back and forth over the city for a few seconds then sped off together. They were gone in an instant. I had never seen anything like it before or since.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

It was not anything I had seen before and it made no sound. It moved slowly and smoothly just above the tree line.

Witness Background

I am in the medical field as medical support. I work for Baptist Health system in Jacksonville, Fl. At the time, I lived in Georgia and owned my own hair salon.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have always watched the skies, the stars and planets, the satelites, etc. I believe UFOs are a real phenomenon and may be extraterrestrial. Why should we be the only ones in the universe? After all, it's a big place....

Full Description & Details

My ex wife (still friends) my daughter at the time age 9 and myself coming home by car after watching the movie Twister at the cinema,1996 I believe.

Traveling from Barnsley to Penistone, South Yorkshire, through quite a rural area. I saw a light moving from left to right slowly at tree height over the woods at Silkstone.

I was driving. I said to my daughter, look Emma a UFO. She said is it really dad. At which I said no I,m only joking, it,s probably the police helicopter looking for some bad guys.

As we moved closer to the line of the woods that crossed the road we were on, there is a bend coming up. We had lost sight of the light. But as we came around the bend there in front of us was a very large black triangular object hovering right above the road, as if it was waiting for us. To my mind wanting to be seen. We went right underneath it. My daughter and ex wife both wound their windows down to look out of their windows. Then they were looking up directly underneath the object.

I was still driving. The bend continued and the object was now, for me out of sight. I don't know why, but without any fear I turned the car around and went back. But the object had gone

I said to my passengers, let's not speak about what we have just seen. Let's wait until we get home. At home, at my suggestion, we all went into different rooms with pen and paper. I said let's all draw a picture of what we have just seen.

All three pictures were almost identical. Description. A large black triangular object, silent, no lights on the tips, but multi colored lights at the center rotating slowly. It,s size was probably 90 to 100 foot across, Possibly larger, no more than 200 to 300 feet above us. The trees gave us perspective.

None of us felt fear just amazement and curiosity.

20 years later I said to my daughter remember that UFO it just waited for us and then moved away. She said not. As we drove down the hill away from it she remembers seeing it just go zip and off , she was watching it through the rear window.

This object wanted to be seen.

I thought maybe it was a secret plane. But it wouldn,t fly over and hover over a populated area, like it wanted to be seen. And by now any aircraft with this ones capabilities would be known to the general public.

To be honest, I think myself and my family have been honored to have been given an hello from friendly extraterrestrials as strange as that may seem. I have not told anyone this story before except close family and friends. Weirdly it seems like it,s normal, or nothing that unusual.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I believe now. I had a passing interest in UFO,s.

Summary:

Was jogging and saw a blinding red light. Stopped and looked up and was up close and personal with one giant white triangle ufo and 3 "balls of light" I would describe them as. A 2nd white triangle appeared and disappeared 2 times during the ordeal

Sighting Time: 

1:47pm

Day/Night: 

Daytime

No. of Witnesses: 

1

Duration: 

12 mins

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Pretty much what I described above. The 3 balls of light looked like stars just bigger and fairly brighter. The lights on the triangle would go from one red one gradually getting brighter and brighter and then slowly fade out. Then the 2nd red would come one and get bright and fade out, same with white light too. Just kept repeating this pattern.

Size of Object(s)

I feel a pretty good estimate was about 3 commercial airliners in length. I fly alot and was plenty close enough to judge size.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

375 yds almost exactly. above the tree tops. Police helicopter altitude tops. Very low.

Description of Area / Surroundings

I was on the PInellas County jogging trail. Less than a mile from Clearwater Beach. I was in a vacant lot type area. Just a field and some empty buildings. Macdill Airforce Base is in Tampa. 15 miles away.

Full Description & Details

I was jogging and a sudden blinding red light appeared in the sky in front of me. I stopped and looked up and there were 4 "objects" in the sky. My brain felt as if it was on pause. I didn't even immediately know what I was looking at. Approx. 20 seconds go by and I realize there is a GIANT white triangular shaped aircraft floating above the trees about 375 yds in front of me. (I later measured distance). The craft was surrounded by 3 "balls of light" . 2 were in back, one a good distance in front. Oddly they were in a triangle pattern. I could tell they were aircraft but way to bright to see any shape. The triangle aircraft seems to be shifting or not made of metal at the top. What I would describe as boiling water looking metal or like a sonic boom type cloud. It also had 3 "lights" on bottom. 2 red , 1 white. They rotated on and off in sequence. All 3 lights were blinding like the sun and pretty sure there weren't light bulbs in this aircraft. Dead silent. The triangle was approx 2.5 to 3 commerical airliners in length. It was the biggest thing I've ever saw. As I'm watching these 4 aircraft a second white triangle appears a good height above me and flashes all 3 lights at once and then vanished into the thin blue sky. Then it appeared again and flashed all 3 lights and again, clear blue sky, no aircraft. Didn't fly away. It literally vanished. Right after that, all 3 balls of light were just gone and the big triangle in front of me rose slowly. Eventually going out of sight. Now for the strange part. Haha. During this 12 mins, I strangely felt as if I was 2 to 3 feet in the air and like a billion miles away. Also I didn't hear sound. Traffic, nothing. A man rode by on a bike and I felt like he was in slow motion and he couldn't hear me if I yelled as loud as I could. Finally I "snapped"out of it and noticed 2 police officer's staring at me. I decided to jog the other way as I'm sure they saw what I did.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Impossible. It was a giant white triangular shaped aircraft. period. Aliens driving? I don't know. Military? Possibly. Only thing I know, it's one or the other. But someone was driving it.

Witness Background

I own bail bonds companies

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I believed ufo's were real before the sighting. I always attributed 99% of sightings to military and still do. Truthfully, these aircraft looked so advanced I'm leaning this was that 1% but honestly your guess is as good as mine. One thing I know, 4 of the 5 aircraft didn't fly away, they just "went" away.

Other Comments

I don't see how I'm the only one who saw these things. Unless it was flying lower than I thought and wasn't visible from the roadways. I don't see how that's possible though. I was GIANT.

My friend is a former police officer and helped me make this image. He went to the scene with me and re-created everything. Only thing missing is the distortion I saw on the top of the aircraft. Otherwise it's spot on.

Summary:

A night sighting of a triangle flying over my back property.

Date Reported:

3/16/2014 2:53:54 PM

Sighting Time: 

10:15PM

Day/Night: 

Nighttime

No. of Witnesses: 

Just myself.

Duration: 

Probably no more than a minute.

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Dark triangle against a starry night, with 3 very bright , round lights. They were more yellow than a white color. One in the front, two in the back.

Size of Object(s)

I'm not good at size, but holding my arm extended fully upwards, it would be about 3 inches between my thumb and index finger.

Description of Area / Surroundings

I live in a rural area of central MA. My road is fairly busy during daytime, but very private in the back. Whitman Lake is to the north of my property, with a walking trail and dam.

Full Description & Details

I live in a rural area next to a lake. I have about 2 acres behind my house, which includes a barn.

I was stepping out the back door at approx. 10:15pm to let my Maltese out (on a leash), after turning on the two lights near the door. The first thing I noticed was the strange yellow glow all around me as I began walking down the steps. I looked up, expecting a very bright moon. To my left, flying silently, was a dark triangle with 3 very bright yellow-white lights. Two on either side of the back, and one at the front. It was flying from the direction of the back of my yard, diagonally across towards the front. This would be from the northeast. The lake would be to my right, the vehicle was to my left, proceeding further to my left. It was above treetop level, but MUCH lower than an airliner, even lower than the Piper Cubs that will fly over the lake. But it was silent, maintaining a steady speed of , say, a helicopter. The viewing lasted maybe a minute, when it went behind a very large pine tree. I pulled my little dog with me, trying to see it again, but it never emerged again. There was a sliver of light that caught my eye, but it was gone. My dog had no reaction, by the way.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No, it was most definitely a flying triangle, from my unobstructed viewpoint.

Witness Background

College educated, worked most recently at a Catholic school office and preschool teachers aide. Retired due to aggressive form of arthritis.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have never seen anything remotely resembling a "UFO" in my 53 years before seeing this. I had lived in cities and suburbs before coming to the country the year before my sighting. I'd occasionally read about sightings in the news (Phoenix lights) and have always felt it's narrow minded to think there is no life anywhere else.

A bright, white star.

Size of Object(s)

Very difficult to say....estimate about 100 ft. across at that distance.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

About 12 miles out over the ocean and level with the ocean when we first saw it.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Rural area, campground, no big lights to obscure our night viewing.

Full Description & Details

When I was 15 in 1965, August, my friend and I were lying on the shore of a large pond at a camping area, telling jokes and laughing. Just the two of us were there; out parents were back at the campsites. It was a beautiful, warm, starry summer night in August. Looking over the pond, which was about three miles from the Atlantic Ocean in Charlestown, Rhode Island, our view was to the East toward the ocean, although we could not see the ocean from that vantage point. Eastward also lie Block Island, a tourist place in summer, about 12 miles offshore. We suddenly both saw a bright star come up from that ocean direction at a 45 degree angle and stop for a second. The light was much brighter and larger than the stars and easily caught our attention. It then, in a kind of jerky, hesitant motion, accelerate at another 45 degree angle, as if trying to free itself from the earth's gravitational pull. Its acceleration increased from that point upward, with two more 45 degree 'zig-zag' movements until it shot into outer space in the blink of any eye. We both just looked at each other, and I said, 'Tommy, did you see that?' He just drawled, 'yeah.' We were silent for a minute but then like teenagers, we just started laughing again. We both agreed that no one would believe us if we told them, so we never mentioned it to anyone. I assume the object came up from the ocean or came from Block Island. I judged the distance of the object to be close to Block Island. However, Fishers Island and Long Island were also out in that direction, but they would be further south. It was impossible to tell how far the object was exactly, but close to Block Island, 12 miles out, I'd say. It was about 9pm that this occurred.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Object and its action would not coincide with any conventional man made craft.

Witness Background

I am a retired teacher, Roman Catholic, conservative in my beliefs, but open to the existence of other worldly civilizations more advanced than our own. At the time of the sighting I was a high school junior at a large Catholic boys' high school.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Flying saucers were known to me at 15 from science fiction films I'd go see, but I had never seen one in real life.

Other Comments

Block Island, Rhode Island, has a large area that is rural and unpopulated and could have been a place where this object originated from. There are several isolated large homes on the East end of the island owned by wealthy people. I believe that this object was sighted by some people on that island that night.

I was driving from Terrenas to Santo Domingo (in Dominican Republic) last year, and I was taking a picture of the sea-sky from the driver's seat with my cel phone and it wasn't until I viewed the pictures afterwards that I noticed a strange figure in two of them. One of the pictures is not very clear, looks like a shadow in the sky apparently turning, but the other picture has a very clear round figure with a smoke line behind it.

Simi Valley, California, United States

Summary:

I saw a little less then half of a UFO. It passed between our house and our neighbors house in Simi Valley, CA. I heard it coming and I heard it go silent. I know that I felt that "they" were familiar. I was 9 years old at the time... I am 47 years old now. I am searching for answers and the truth, and I am also finally brave enough to not be afraid of thinking that others will think I am crazy. I know what I heard, I know what I felt, and I know what I saw.

Duration: 

seconds

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was a disk shape, deep dark charcoal color - almost black, multi-colored lights on its rims and ribs... like a vinyl record, but without the spaces in-between songs. The ribs where larger then a record... If you imagine a vinyl record the size of something big enough to pass between 2, two story homes (just at the bottom of the second story windows) - the ribs would be at that scale.

Size of Object(s)

I passed below the roofs of our home and our neighbors home - the rim was almost at the bottom of our second story windows - I could see the rim and the top... clearly

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

1.5 stories high

Description of Area / Surroundings

Suburbs of Simi Valley California - 1 or 2 blocks from Aurora Elementary School

Full Description & Details

I heard the craft coming. It sounded like a jump robe being whipped around someones head - like a helicopter without the choppy sound.

I was half asleep at the time when the sound was soft , like a jump robe - I was imagining my Dad in the back yard whirling a jump rope over his head. And then it got louder and I imagined a chain, but then I woke up because I realized that the sound was louder then what my dad could do with any thickness of chain. Again... no choppy sound that you would expect in the air - like a helicopter.

I was petrified and paralyzed with fear, but then . I it hit me and I became comfortable thinking, "their back" in a good, familiar way.

I felt like I knew them and even called them to me in some way. I remember the connection - in my head, in my whole being.

Then everything went quiet, and I got up and looked out the window (to my left). I got up in time to see just a little less the half of the craft drifting slowly between our home and our neighbors home... under the roof line.

I remember lights that reminded me of Christmas lights that was on the rim of the disk, and ribs on the top of the surface of the craft... like ribs on a record without the skips to separate the songs. The ribs were larger then a vinyl record, but the metal was black and ribbed.

I was fascinated and fixed until they slowly glided out of my side between our houses.

I never had that experience again. I was 9 almost 10 years old at the time.

I didn't tell anybody because I thought they would think I was crazy.

I have to say that I've always been suspicious about a few things.

One, my sister has something in her leg that isn't normal.

Our new born puppies all died after drinking from standing water after the indecent and... why did I feel that "they" were familiar?

I will never forget this or stop trying to get the answers I "need"!

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No, it was slowly floating and silent. And I don't even want to say, "floating". It was on a path - a deliberate path and very steady.

Witness Background

Admin. Spec. I, Sales Rep., Sales Assistant, Receptionist. Wife, Mother, Grandmother.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I'm 47 now, I was 9 years old at the time. I didn't know about UFOs back then, I just knew that it wasn't something natural or something I could learn about in school. "It" gave me feelings of being familiar - but after it was gone... I have nothing but questions. Even after all this time.

Other Comments

I need to know more. I've been through the obsessed phase, but have found that I can't learn anymore then I have from books or TV.

I wonder why they were so familiar to me - I'd like to be hypnotized, but won't because I need to protect myself from people that would think me crazy. I am getting closer to the age where I don't care about what other people think. They know I have an open mind, but I am sharing a lot more here on the site then I have with them

Rural forrested highway.

Full Description & Details

After leaving Chicago after dinner on June 13, 2013, I was headed to Pentwater, MI. At approximately 2:15 a.m., e.s.t., I was driving northbound on RT 31, a few miles North of Whitehall, MI. There is treeline on both sides of the highway, and along the area dividing the highway directions. The treeline starts approximately 25 yards off the street. Streaking from left to right, heading away from the lake, was a spherical or ovular object that was bright yellowish/orange. I only saw the object as it flew over the center treeline, and until it disappeared over the treeline to my right. It crossed the highway approximately 50 yards ahead of me and was approximately 75 feet off of the ground. It was 50% larger than a passenger van. It moved extremely fast - treeline to treeline only took it 2 seconds or so. It was totally silent, and there were no other cars on the highway in either direction. Its movement was perfectly parallel to the ground. After it cleared the treeline to my right, it seemed to arch slightly downward to cling to the treeline and disappear from my sight as I drove by. I was alone in the car, but my dog seemed to suddenly look at attention after he had been sleeping most of the drive. The fluidity of the object's movement was unlike any motorized object that I've ever seen.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

I've never seen anything like it and it didn't move like it was man made.

Witness Background

I'm an attorney of 14 years.

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The object was a disc, 35 ft dia., completely flat on the bottom, slightly confexed, a satin or flat finish, brownish grey color, the top was a lighter more aluminum color, matalic appearance. I was very close to it, and could not see the upper profile completely, I est. the height @ 8 ft., it did have a dome in the center, my viewing it horizonally was very brief and unexpected. It made no sound, was not spinning or wavering, I didn not feel phyiscally different or scared, I did not see any lightes or landing-gear devices, or windows. I only felt the wind or breeze when it moved upward.

Size of Object(s)

Diameter-35ft., Height-8ft. Altitude- 0 to 20ft.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Object was 20 to 25 ft. from me, approx. 8ft tall.

Description of Area / Surroundings

The area was very rural, acerage between farms, orchards, cow pastures, pine trees and brush. One mile away would have been a saw-mill and small rail yard.

Full Description & Details

My encounter was in the morning, 10am or so, sun was shining, I was headed out to our tree-fort we had recently built to continue preparing it for over night sleeps etc. I had aproached a row of cherry trees, walking under them on to a patch of wild rose bushes, as I stopped to view a pheasants nest with eggs, we had been waiting to hatch etc. I recall feeling a breeze which did blow the bushes some, just as I broke out the the shrubs into the meadow clearing a disk shaped object 30 ft, in front of me rose quickly into the air, hovering approx. 20 to 30 ft above the ground, I doubt that I watched it for more than a minute deciding what to do, I then continued on my way walking directly under it and on my way, never thought about it or told anyone at that time. It was no biggy at that time of my life, I was a simple country boy, my main goal was reaching the tree fort. I did not know anything concerning UFO's.

Nine years later, I had moved to the Portland, Oregon to start apprentice school as a machinist, it was at that time while discussing lunch-room chat, the subject of UFO's came up, I then realized what I had encounted, and have kicked myself ever since for not looking back at it and observing it more. Many, if not most times I would have been carrying a 22 rifle with me, I might have actually shot the thing.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Yes, man could make a replica of the object as for physical size and shape

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I had no knowledge of UFO's prior to my encounter, it was just another day in the woods. My views today, obviously my encounter was real, how ever the purpose, or origin of the object is unknown.
