Full Description & Details

As a child about 8, I was with a group of kids at church in Glen Allen, VA and looked out the back fire excape door window on the 2nd or 3rd floor. I saw very close to the back of the church an oval or saucer shaped UFO about 100-150 feet from me. It was really close. I was pretty much eye level with it looking slightly upward. I could see what appeared to be a number of window segments separated by vertical strips (not a continuous window-segmented like an airplane window) that extended about 50-60 percent of the object's width. The object appeared to be about 15-20 feet tall, and about 30-50 feet wide. It was pretty much occupying the leaf span directly over about a 30-50 year old oak or similar tree. The window portion of the craft was eminating a red llight and was very close to the top of the tree, so the windows may have been on the underside - but am not real sure on this point. The main thing I remember was a soft red light from the windows (like cockpit lights) and it silouetted several humanlike figures that appeared to be sitting with some slight movements. I was curious until I saw the movement and that is what really scared me.

It made no apparent noise that I could hear inside, and was hovering very still. I could not tell what color or material the object was, but I could clearly see its basic form in the dark.

I was looking through a paned glass door window. The object was not directly in view. I was looking from the right corner of a door window pane toward the left. The tree was up against the corner of the church about 100 to 150 feet away to the left.

When I saw the movement inside the object, I remember grabbing another kid to look at it and he saw it too. When this happened, I got very scared and ran into the main church disrupting the service.

There was a significant wooded area behind the church that probably extended several miles behind the church at that time in the 1960s.

I would consider myself level-headed, and have always paid close attention to details. I currently work as an engineer.

Other Comments

I have talked to my brother and sister about this. They indicated they have talked to other people who were in Glen Allen in 1964-1966 and remember a number of people who saw UFOs in the area. Of course UFOs were a hot topic back then, if I remember correctly.

Full Description & Details

While on a canoe trip with a friend in 1983 we had an odd experiance. I never gave much thought to it being related to a UFO event but after seeing a report of a possible abduction of 4 campers on a fishing trip, I began to wonder. My friend and I were on a week long canoe trip in Algonquin Provincal Park. It was autumn so it got dark early. On the second day of our trip we decided to camp on Burnt Island Lake. We found an empty site that we liked. We set up camp and spent the rest of the daylight hours taking pictures and gathering wood for our campfire. As darkness fell we started a fire. My friend was unusally quiet and he kept putting a lot of wood on the fire keeping it large. After a short while he said he was going to bed. I hadn't said anything to him but I was feeling very uncomfortable. It felt like we were being watched. I didn't want to sit up at the fire by myself so I followed him into the tent. Before we went into the tent my friend piled a more wood on the fire so it was really bright in the campsite. The flames were quite high as we got into our sleeping bags. I was laying on my side facing the tent wall. I remember that I could see the bright glow of the fire through the tent fabric. Then suddenly it was dark. That was when my friend nudged me and asked what happened to the fire. I could hear the stress in his voice. We both sat up and looked out the door at the fire. It had burned down to a bed of coals even though we had just piled it high with wood. I didn't get much sleep that night and as soon as it grew light my friend got up and said he wanted to get an early start. we didn't fix breafast, we just packed as fast as we could and left the area. Once we were off that lake and portageing to the next lake my friend told me that he was glad to be away from that area. He said that he had a very wierd feeling the night before. He said that he felt threatened at the fire, That was why he wanted to get in the tent so early.He didn't understand why the fire had burned down to nothing as soon as we were in the tent. I told him that I had felt uncomfortable also. We both laughed it off and joked that maybe we had camped on an old indian burial ground. The rest of the trip was uneventful. I always watch the night sky when I'm out side. I never saw anything unusual in the sky on that trip. Shortly after that trip I began having what I refer to as sleep episodes. I will be asleep but in the middle of the night I'll wake up. I can't move or see anything but I have the strongest feeling that someone or something is in my room and I'm angry and afraid. Most of the time I try to call out for help, but I can't speak. Once in a while I would wake up in a sitting position. I'd be screaming " Get out, Leave me alone". I'm a grown man but when I'd have one of these episodes I'd have to leave the bedroom light on the rest of the night because I was so scared. As the years passed these events occured less and less until they stopped a year ago. An odd thing is, I worked a rotating shift but the only time I ever had one of these episodes was when I worked the day shift. They never happened when I worked midnights and slept during the day. I always attribuited these sleep problems to sleep paralysis syndrome. My Friend and I returned to the same camp site two years after the event. We wanted to see if we would have the same sense of foreboding that we had the first time. We spent the night at the site. We both had a little apprehension about staying there but that soon wore off and we had an enjoyable night at the fire by the lake. Neither one of us had the threatening feelings that we had experienced the first time.

After seeing the story about the four men on a fishing trip (two were brothers and they both had night mares about abductions) I began to wonder about my camping trip. I've thought about hypnosis but I'm not sure I want to know what happened that night, if anything.

Witness Background

I have a high school education and work in the high performance Ceramics industry as a Master technican. .

Other Comments

I have always had an interest in science and space. I know in my heart that we are not alone in the universe, however I'm not sure that they can get here or that we will ever reach them. Because it takes so long for the light of stars to reach us, any signal that we detect will most likely be from a dead civilazation. We can only observe but not comunicate. I know people are seeing things that can't be explained and some truly believe that they were abducted. Perhaps its time travel, our own governments research or natural phenomenon. I'll keep an open mind, and an eye on the sky.

Full Description & Details

It was broad daylight with a blue sky. I had gone outside following dinner to check on a puppy I had tied up while we ate. I happened to look up and was startled to see the flying disc traveling slowly. It was about a 1/4 mile away and several hundred feet in the air. I extended my arm and sighted on my thumb to get an approximate size. As I did this the craft did a 90 degree turn away from me and shot toward Burlington at an astonishing speed or just disappeared. The next day the Burlington County Times printed two sighting reports. Two police officers fom Burlington Township traveling in their police car reported it as well as a couple traveling over the Burlington Bristol Bridge observed it hovering over the Public Service Electric Generating Plant near the Bridge on the Delaware River. I saved the article but it was lost in our move to where we now live near Vincentown, NJ. On two occasions I visited the Burlington County Library and used their microfiche newspaper records to no avail as there were entire missing editions of the Burlington County Times. I clearly remember the year and the time frame as we were in the process of having our current home built and were renting the house in Mt. Holly in the interim. At the time, 1966, you were ridiculed if you reported seeing a UFO , so I kept quiet about it. Also, I was the Burlington County 4-H Club Agent and didn't want to jepordize my job or family. I would like to know if you are aware of these sightings.

Witness Background

At the time of the sighting I was the Burlington County 4-H Club Agent employed by Burlinton County and Rutgers University. I retired in 1994 from the Willingboro School system having worked as science teacher, guidance counselor, and The Evening High School principal from 1968 to my retirement. I have a Master's Degree in Administration.

Other Comments

I realize this is an old sighting but the image of the UFO I saw is as clear in my mind as if it were just yesterday. I would like to hear from you if you know anything about this sighting or other sightings around this time(1966).

Shape of Object(s)

domed shaped--windows encircled

Color of Object(s):

pulsated orange, blue, green, etc--do not know the pattern but they were repeated

Full Description & Details

In order to arrive home we had cross a mountain ridge road, cross over the Pa turnpike, and then turn onto the narrow winding road which ran north towards our property of 6 plus acres which spanned both sides of the road. We had several acres of woods and meadows on one side (with creek running through center) and on the other side of the road was our large farm house. Just as we were approaching the curve directly in front of our home my son (he was driving) and I saw a domed shaped, pulsating ufo cross directly above the trees in our woods, cross over our vehicle, cross over the chimney of our home, and descend beyond the corn field behind our home against the mountain backdrop. We saw it clearly and watched it floatlike across in a non erratic pattern--it was domed shaped, rather large, low enough to see a circle of windows, it was noiseless, and pulsated from one color into another as it crossed in front of our direct line of vision. We quickly parked our vehicle, ran into our home and yelled to my other son and nephew who were at home that a ufo had just landed behind the cornfield next to the mountain. We all ran outside and then became terrified, ran back into the house, locked all doors and waited for my husband to return home from his office. We were too frightened to investigate and we did not report the sighting because other residents in the valley reported seeing ufo's, didn't want outsiders to come into the valley, and reporting or discussing was taboo. Several months prior to our sighting a newcomer in the valley came to visit us because he said we were the only Jews in the area and he wanted to know about the Old Testament and how Cain might relate to ufo's. We thought he was crazy. He said everynight a ufo landed behind his rented farm house further up the valley. We really thought he was crazy, were polite, but distanced ourselves from him. He said he had been plagued by ufos all of his life and was written about in a famous ufo book, claimed he had been abducted. Several months later when we returned home on a Saturday midday we found the valley was blocked by government officials but because we lived there we were permitted to go to our home and instructed not to go further up the valley. They seemed to know us on sight but we didn't recognize any of the men who were guarding the road. We called a friend of ours who lived further up the valley to see what the problem was and she said the man (the one who came to visit us) had gone berserk and was shooting at something. She said there was nothing to worry about because he was now sleeping. We sat on our front porch and watched the official vehicles going and coming--we saw an actual "man in black" in a government car pass by. The man vanished and we never knew what happened. We were certain he was crazy but when and how he vanished is a mystery. After seeing the ufo which was like the man described was landing regularly behind his rented farm house we changed our minds about him being crazy. We made inquiries to other residents and were told conflicting stories. We were frightened and didn't ask further questions. Amberson Valley is located near Letterkenny Army Depot. It is an isolated setting. Old-timers talked about seeing strange lights frequently but those stories were not meant to be spoken about to outsiders--my paternal ancestors were some of the original settlers in the valley in the late l700's and thus I was considered one of them even though I wasn't born there and moved there when I was 40 years old--we lived there for 9 years before coming to Israel..

Witness Background

At the time of sighting I was in my late 40's, university educated at U of M and graduate work at Wayne State University. Managed an office in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, owned a small general store in Amberson with game room, built a small public library, and now retired. Changed my name after moving to Israel. When I lived in Amberson I was Veronica Van Scyoc-Zimmerman. I'm listed in Who's Who in the Midwest l982.

Full Description & Details

I was heading from Fredonia Pa to Mercer Pa just before midnight in the winter of 1997 (I think it was). I noticed two "headlights" way ahead of me and thought....wow I didn’t realize the elevation was so high...It wasn’t. I stopped the car once I realized this object was in the air. It had two vertical white discs in the front like headlights only these discs were at least 13’ in diameter each and about 3 to 4’ apart. I got out of my car on the side of the road and it flew almost directly over me. It was between 75 to 125’ in the air moving about a jogging pace. There were oncoming cars driving by as if they saw nothing. I thought to myself “ Oh, ok,…it’s an ultralight plane”. But it was bitterly cold, about 15 degrees below zero. And then as it passed I saw the “headlights” had a depth to them, meaning about 2 to 3 foot thick. And underneath, there were 4 horizontal discs…side by side. Each a bout 9’ diameter yellow orange, yellow orange about 1 to 2’ thick. I said to myself (out loud) “Ok….its a ????...um, well it looks too stupid to be an alien craft. The “headlights are not very aerodynamic. It made no sound that I could hear even though my Honda CRX idled very quietly so, that blew my ultralight and even a blimp theory. I have seen both of those in the daytime and I know how loud they are. I did not shut the engine off because I have watched too many Si-Fi movies and thought maybe this thing drains power as it flies and may have killed my battery…LOL!

I stood in the road staring in awe on how it was moving. ..It moved so perfectly straight and slow, I thought I was looking at a computer graphic. Even if I was convinced it WAS a blimp or something terrestrial, I AM convinced there is nothing that can fly THAT smoothly. There was a vertical white disc in the back about 10’ in diameter. I could not make out any structure holding the discs together. I jumped into my car and flew home (about 5 miles) to call my friend that I just dropped off in Fredonia. And told him that something was heading his way. I hung up and grabbed my video camera ran outside……and…I ran back inside. I was spooked. I just could not get over the weird movement and for the first time it hit me I COULD have just seen a real Alien Craft. It is a very strange feeling to have seen something THAT close and not know what it is. Other UFO witnesses know what I mean. I called back my friend after a few minutes and his family saw nothing. I called the Mercer State Police the next day. I sheepishly asked her

If anyone reported anything weird in the sky. She said no, and checked to see if the Lifeflight was out and it was not.

…dunno

I could submit a drawing if needed.

Full Description & Details

We sailed from King Harbor near San Pedro, Ca. leaving at midnight and heading for Catalina Island. As we neared half way we saw a green glow ahead of us in the fog. We crossed over 3 bright luminescent lime green rings below us in the sea. They were also equi-distant from each other in a triangle formation. Our sailboat and sails glowed green as we passed thru them....looking back they remained in place for 10-15 min. before fading off in the fog.

We were simply amazed and thought that some thing awsome was there hidden just below the surface.

Full Description & Details

While playing on a playstation in my lounge, my friend suddenly shouted at me to look out of my window, asking "what the hell is that?" i looked up and saw three ball shaped objects equally spaced (i would guess about 75 metres apart) in a diagonal line (about 45 degrees from horizontal) above and beyond the house opposite mine. I had no idea what the objects were as i have never seen anything similar before. After watching the objects for about 20 seconds i ran to the upstairs window (my friend following) in order to get a better view. The objects appeared as yellowish white glowing balls, no other detail was visible, and were moving quite slowly across the sky while remaining the same distance apart from each other and at the same approximate 45 degrees from horizontal. I would estimate that the objects were approximately 2 miles away (perhaps less) at an altitude of 700-1000 feet. Assuming this to be correct i would estimate their individual size as 30 feet in diameter (each object was equal in size). I would like to point out that i have a lot of experience observing aircraft due to my work. I am a Safety Manager for an offshore oil company and my position encompasses Helicopter Landing Officer, so i am familiar with aircraft lights on crafts approaching from various directions at differing levels of daylight and i have never before witnessed anything resembling these objects, nor has my friend. We watched the objects for approximately 5 minutes as they moved slowly away at a constant speed. For reference, it was normal daylight hours and the sky was clear during this period.

Neither myself or my friend felt comfortable telling anyone about this at the time as we felt that people would simply think that we must have seen something else. As time has passed we have recently discussed this with several close friends, however, i have been keen to point out that i can not make any asumption as to what the objects were, i can simply say that they are unexplainable to me.

Witness Background

I am a 31 year old male, employed as a Safety Manager for an offshore oil company and am engaged to the woman i share my life with. I like to think i am open minded about most things. Although i am approachable on any given subject, i only fully believe things which i have seen or experienced first hand myself or have been informed of via proven reliable sources.

Full Description & Details

I have witnessed an interesting light on three seperate nights...approx. 3:30 am--4:00am

It appears suddenly, the light is white, with no colored or blinking lights. It appears to

reflect color, as would a prism. The light assumes approximately the same position and maintains it....it appears to move fluidly, gracefully. It does not travel distance in a straight line (as a plane does). The light seems near....within 0-10 miles and is low on the horizon. There is no detectable sound (as with a helicopter) although on one occasion the coyotes were agitated and barking. It disappears in the same manner that it appears....suddenly and completely.

I am not sure what I am seeing....any other sightings of odd lights in the middle of the night from this area lately?

Witness Background

I am a 48 year old female. I own a house and property in Trout Lake, WA where I am a single mom raising 2 children. I work in a local antique store. I have never contacted any organization regarding a 'sighting' prior to this. Truthfully, I am not sure what I am seeing, but would welcome input

Other Comments

As I said, I am not sure what I am seeing. I lived in the Tacoma, WA area for many years near McChord Air Force Base, so I am very familiar with all manner of aircraft

and their appearance and patterns. This light does not seem to fit any category I've witnessed before. ???

Full Description & Details

As an adolescent boy my adoptive aunt and I were driving west on Dayton-Liberty Rd to visit my cousin and her husband in a new suburban housing developement just east of Union Rd in Jefferson Twp in Ohio. I was not looking in the direction of the flashing object that caught my aunts attention when she said, "Andy, what is that?" Without looking I said,"Oh, it's probably just a plane with its approach lights on." She pulled off to the rightside of the road and stopped and pointed, "No Andy, what is that?" I loked to the SW where she was pointing and was perplexed and intrigued by what I saw approaching. I was a jet plane buff at an early age, I dreamed of becoming a test pilot and studied military and civilian aircraft in books I regularly checked out of the public library. I could identify any published aircraft in the Air Force inventory at the time just by its sillouette. This eleptical white object was not even close to being anything like any I'd ever seen before or could have imagined.

I got partly out of the car by sitting in the open window of my passenger-side door with my feet on the seat and my arms resting on the roof of the car. As the clearly observable object came almost directly overhead it slowed to a hover for a second. my aunt was nearly in a panic, or in shock. Just as I began to get a little apprehensive the object cclerated away at incredible spped to the NE out of sight. Strangely, not another vehicle was on the road or passed us in either direction the whole time. Nobody was even in their yard or on their porch or on the road to witness the object.

I slid back in the car and got my aunt to drive on to her daughter's, less than 5 minutes away. Even though we told her daughter, my aunt did not want to report the sighting to authorities because "they would not believe us." I've related this story on rare occassion to friends of mine is all.

Witness Background

At the time I was about 12 or 13 years old. But as I described in more detail above, I could infalibly identify contemporary military, civilian, and general avaiation aircraft by their sillouette alone.

I'm sending a sketch I made that loosely resembles the sighting.

Full Description & Details

I saw what seemed to be a flash of some sort as I was standing outside my home. It was almost dark out, but not quite. I turned to look in the direction of the flash and that is when I noticed the object appear, seemingly out of no where. At first I rubbed my eyes because I thought surely I could not be seeing this. Then I realized that I was indeed viewing something that could not be of this world. The object was traveling slowly towards me at first. I began to feel almost scared. The object then turned and I saw it flying by. It was v-shaped and the lights looked star-like. They were symetrical and in formation of sorts. The object or objects--I keep saying that because I am not sure of it was several or all one big one. But the way it flew, it changed formation at times. I want to say almost like wings. But this was certainly not a bird. I am sorry, but it is difficult to explain. The lights were pulsating--they would dim and then brighten again, but never get as bright as the stars seem to be in the sky. I was absolutely dumbstruck. I could not even call for my husband to come and look. I felt almost paralyzed. This was very amazing! I looked up on the internet to see if anyone had reported anything similar because I had never heard of any reports describing anything like what I saw. But I came across the Phoenix lights and that looked to be very very close. I hope this helps--I know my description isn't great, but I assure you that there was something in the sky that cannot be explained away by anything "normal".

Witness Background

I am a full time student majoring in Psychology. I am also working on studying Parapsychology (strange combination of science and the paranormal, but I like some skepticism--it weeds out the things that are fake). I have had other sightings, but never reported. I have always believed in other life on other plants, etc. It only stands to reason that in such an enormous universe, that we are not alone:)
