Summary:

While traveling on the higway at night from Asheville, N.C. towards Ocean City, Maryland an object that looked like a flying saucer followed us. Our headlights went out, the radio went off and the situation in the car we were in became murky. I had signalled it with a large flashlight and it seemingly responded.

Full Description & Details

My girlfriend Mary and I decided to leave Asheville, North Carolina where we were visiting my mother and three sisters ( my parents had divorced two years earlier. ) I was approximately 23 at the time and Mary was probaly 20. Initially upon leaving there we'd decided to spend a few days in Nagshead North Carolina but the horseflies were brutal on the beach so we decideded to drive to our usual vacation spot in either Rehobath Beach or Ocean City Maryland. Mary was driving when suddenly she said Michael look out the back window there is something folllowing us in the sky and I think it's a flying saucer. I thought she was kidding but climbed into he back seat when she became almost hysterical about it. I had a big camping flashlight with us with which I began to signal up into the sky at what did look like a flying saucer. It had no wings and it moved from side to side over the road in a gliding yet lighting quick action. I had never seen an object in the sky act like that. It also changed altitudes very freely and quickly at times hovering only 30 to 40 feet above the road. After a few minutes it seemingly disappeared. However after about 10 minutes Mary said," Michael I think it's back but this time it's over the car." As she said it the radio and headlights failed. The atmosphere in the car seemed to change. It was if everything took on a feeling of almost slow motion, like a liquifying haze intermingled with the very atmosphere within the vehicle. The next thing I remember although it is very vague and I'm not sure in what time context is seeing this same craft enter the bay by which we were traveling at the time almost sideways without disturbing the water, at least that's how it seemed.

My memories of this trip from that point on are blank except when we reached Rehobath Beach. We arrived as I recall at about 2:30 or 3:00 a.m. and were very exhausted. I decided to go up nearby houses and knock on a screen door. It was a section where a lot of kids and young adukts were up at all hours of the night and we did not want to have to sleep cramped in a car until the next day. THE FIRST PLACE I APPROACHED I KNOCKED ON THE DOOR AND A GUY GREETED ME BY SAYING " BRIAN WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU. "MY NAME IS NOT Brian but ironically it IS a name I've always been very fond of and sometimes wished I had. I told the guy, " I'm not Brian but listen could we crash here for a few hours. The guy said he thought it would be okay and led us upstairs to an attic room saying, " This other guy who lives here will be coming back and when he does you'll have to leave. " I said " Sure thing. "

The room was really quaint and cool and I locked the door whenour host left. Just then a huge storm started to brew and the air was tinged with lightning and the sky resounded with thunder and the rain started to pound the roof. Our exhaustion lifted and we got really trurned on and made love. It was incredible. At some point I did hear a banging on the door which I vaugely remember but I told the guy. " Go away " We snuck out the next morning after I wrote a note thanking them for their hospitality and leaving a $5 bill on the table with it. I don't remember driving back to Maryland and my memories of the rest of the trip before the incident are pretty vague. About 5 years later Mary called me out of the blue ( we'd broken up but always had some kind of pyschic connection. I'd pick up the phone when she was calling me all the time. ) She was watching that Lenoard Nimoy program In Search Of and they were talking about UFO's and alien abduction ( neither of us had ever heard of the phenomenon before ). We had NEVER discussed the incident either since it took place.. She said, " Michael, are you watching IN Search Of. " I said " Yeah, I am as a matter of fact. " We briefly discussed it chatted for a few minutes then hung up.

I should add a few incidentals here. The only other UFO related event I had was a dream where in the dream I seem to be in my " grandfather's law library " in what seems like a dental chair. Several aliens come in and I am injected with a green gel like liquid. " That's all I remember. Since childhood I have had many many psychic experiences. We have an aunt on my father's side who was a well known psychic. I have had many presient dreams and some important waking imports of things to come such as premonitioons about peoples deaths and even one ( although I know it may sound grandiose in Hoboken about a year before Sept. 11th. I had a waking vision of seeing police stationed everywhere ( almost like in nazi Germany ) and a sense that a great cataclysm had taken place. It had very close to the Path Station ( about 25 yeards away ..... the Path Station at 33rd Street was destoryed when the planes hit. That was the first and only occurence of such a " political " premonition although the nature of it wasn't political just very matter of fact. I am also a self taught musician ( I had a guiding dream telling me to take up music ) and songwriter. I've self publsihed a book Radical Truth: From Dallas to Waco and Beyond ....... ( An American Conspiracy Matrix ) which is pro Constitution but sees great dangers up ahead both politically and cataclyismacally. I occasionally hear a very high pitched sound in my ear ( it's like hearing a dog whistle ) which I read somewhere is realted by some to UFO's but I wouldn't really know. I mention it only in passing. Both Mary and I became very religious after the " sighting " although it had been a component our our makeups before as well. Mary Became a Jehovah's Witness, I became ( and remain a born again Christian ).

Recently I've wriiten two UFO style songs True North ( about Admiral Byrd's excursions into the area oif the North Pole which mentions " a landing place for UFO's ) and They Came From Outer Space based on David Icke's Reptilian theories. For some reason both things came into my head. While not naturally a visual artist I have recently also drawn an account of my experience with Mary on the road and drawn ( just out of happenstance while vactioning at the Jersey shore a picture of an alien as well. I love Jesus with all my heart and I believe in angels ....... but I wonder about UFO's .... I kinda tend to believe they are possibly fallen angels appearing at the end of the age. P.S. I will be attending your seminar in New York about ransgenic beings August 20th.

Witness Background

I'm a very creative person who plays guitar, some harmonica and fools around with programed beats and writes a lot of interesting songs in my many genres inlcuing fokl - folk rock- rock- gospel - blues - country- and even recently hip hop and rap ( I've been a feautured or ( paid ) poet ( St Marks and a showcased songwriter Folk City where Dylan played. My work is often favorably compared with his. I've written five books- Radical Truth: From Dallas to Waco and Beyond .... An American Conpsiracy Matrix ), Reflections of the Soul: American Rimbaud ( Growing Up Insane in the 60's ), Revelation ( Are We Living in the Last Days ), Romantic Notions ( 31 cool poems ) and Rivers to Cross the Songs if Mike Sheehan 1975-2005 ( 140 original songs ). I have a teaching license ( and currently substitute teach ), a real estate license ( I've closed deals ), a paralegal certificate ( I've worked in the field ) and have also worked as a Newspaper reporter/photographer for a weekly, managed music, book and comic stores, been a street vender, delievry driver, landscaper etc.

Other Comments

I will be at the Transgenic Symposium on Nov 20th in New York. If for any reason I am unavailable on line I will be at the above address. I find the subject of interesting but am not fantaical about it. I just like to understand what's going on as a person, writer and artist. I've finished an intense and extrememly productive writing and recording cycle involving both books and music and now am more focused on career, marketing what I've written and perhaps exploring fiction. I am not an exploiter or a hustler I have written what I have and done my work as an artist because it is in me to do it and I enjoy it immensely. Sometimes I've been a little less than practical at pursuing things partly because I didn't want the commercial instinct to win out over my innate and genuine curiosity. But I'm not in a bad situation at all now in my life. In fact I rather like it. I'm stable, very happily married and feel like I've written some great stuff which I'm real proud of ( both books and music ). I feel optomistic, have worked out some difficult issues resulting from a difficult childhhood experience in the last five years and am looking forward to life with a lot of hope and anticipation.

Full Description & Details

There was party at my friend's parents house and several of the neighborhood children were atteding the party. We, the children, decided to have a sky-watch because were obsessed with the X-Files like everyone else in the US in the mid-ninetees. We were fully not expecting to see anything. It was just something to do to pass the time in quiet suburbia. Just after sunset we spotted several airplanes and nothing eventful, but we did see a spot of light in the sky that we had noticed before sunset and it hadn't moved. It didn't look like a star and it hadn't moved at all so it wasn't an airplane. We decided to just keep an eye on it periodically. After watching it for about an hour on and off it was close enough for us to see that it was probably an airlplane because we could see lights flashing on it like on a plane from a distance. So, we just ignored for a while. I don't remember who, but one of us noticed a little later that the object was very very close and was coming closer so we stopped what we were doing and sat in the backyard to watch it. The backyard is up on a hill and one can see about 10 miles into the distance until the Apalachian Mountains get in the way. (I think those are the mountains). Well, the UFO eventually flew right next to the house in this yard. There is a small treeline that it flew above. It was about 75 feet from us. It resembled the shape of an egg and had the look of brushed steel. it had multicolored lights that flashed in no particular order around the middle of the UFO. It was about the size of a pick-up truck. The description sounds ver cliche, but so far I haven't been able to find any pictures that are similar to what we saw. I was only about 11 so I was scared to death and ran inside with my friend who was also the same age. We each went our separated ways and sat with our parents. Only the kids were outside. The Adults were in the house. All the other kids, all boys, who were outside were several years older than my friend and I and were thus much bolder and ran after the ship. They returned about 20 minutes later. We all went down into the basement in silence. We didn't talk about it, we just went back to playing like nothing had happened. No matter what my friend and I asked or pleaded, the older boys just said, basically, "Forget it." We did not discuss the event for several years. About two years ago, the neighborhood kids had a little reunion because many had gone off to college or moved and we were trying to keep in touch. I mentioned something about the sighting to my friend, who had run inside with me at the sighting, just becuase I wanted to make sure it wasn't a dream or anything. His face went white and he said, "Oh my God, it wasn't a dream." We then comiserated and our stories matched up. Excitedly, we ran out to our other friends and began to ask then about the UFO and see if they remembered. None of them did. So basically, those that ran after the UFO don't remember ever seeing it, and my friend and I, who ran inside, do remember it. This is my story, you can believe me or not, but this is what happened. I have nothing to gain by telling you this story, so I thought, why not. I like you site very much.

Full Description & Details

While getting ready to depart back to my grandparents home ( where I unfortunately still lived at the time ) I noticed this werid lit up object in the sky in the backyard at my moms house. I was alittle confused as to what it was. I have seen the trails of rockects & jet fighters before as a thin string like cloud in the skies. This wasn't one of those cloud trails. It was glowing like a flouresent light and was moving in every which way. It was like a snake of light in the sky moving and morphing shapes and positions. Not moving in position in the sky but, was like an illuminated ribbion freefloating in the air. I was intrigued and curious to what the hell it was. I shot the last 2 negatives on my digital film cartridge Canon camera. My mom & I got in the car & headed east towards Riverside county to the town of Norco, my old house. Appon arrival to my grandparents I immediately jumped outta the car & looked westward in the direction we had travled from. Sure enough it was still in the sky. My mom ran into the house & yelled for my 3 younger kid cousins whom also reside there aswell. They came barreling out the front door to be stopped dead in their tracks at first glance at this mysterious object in the sky. After about 5 minutes it disapeared outta sight. How & where beats me ? I couldn't even tell you how it became non-visible, it just did. This object was able to be seen in Los Angeles county & Riverside county.

Full Description & Details

On a weekday holiday from school, when I was nine years old, some friends and I had gone "hunting" with BB guns. Returning home for lunch, standing in the back yard under some barren trees, the little kids spotted me and wanted to play with the BB gun. I refused. "Shoot that, shoot that," one of them said, pointing up. About twenty feet overhead, above the small trees, was an opaque, dark purple disk. I walked out from beneath the trees to see it better, and with a slight delay, saw the disk tilt to follow my movement. I ran inside, grabbed my Gilbert reflector telescope, came back outside, and set it up. I wanted a close-up view of the bottom of the disk, which seemed featureless to my unaided eye. Unfortunately, the telescope would not focus that close. When I looked up from the eyepiece, the disk had resumed its level orientation. In cross section it appeared convex and symmetrical. It made a small circling movemen,t then darted away, silently, at an inclination of about thirty degrees. The day was grey, uniformly overcast, and the disk moved quickly out of viewing range, in a few seconds. A few years ago, I related these events at a party for my younger brother. "Did that really happen!?" he exclaimed. "I've had bad dreams about that all these years!" He was four at the time, and was one of the little kids under the trees.

Full Description & Details

About 10 of us on a caving trip were standing outside of Grahms Motel on Rt. 219 near Buckeye, WV when suddenly we saw an object about 2000 feet away (based on topo maps). The object flew slowly and silently along the ridge for about 25 seconds then appeared to turn and dissappeared on the other side of the ridge not to be seen again. The object was about 6 degrees in size based on putting my fist at arms length over the object. That is about the diameter of 12 full moons. At that distance I estimated the object to be about 200-250 feet across. It had blue and red lights on the ends which were not blinking. There was no landing lights. There appeared to be a row of windows, maybe 15 to 20 with very bright white light coming from all of the windows. The object made no sound and toward the end one end appeared to lift up sightly and tilt as it began to turn and dissappear over the ridge. The weather was clear and cool with temperatures in the 40 degree range. There were no other object or aircraft seen that night since the nearest airport is 60-70 miles away at Lewisburg, Wv.

Full Description & Details

My 13-year old son and I were observing the recent lunar eclipse in Central Park's Strawberry Fields. While my son was using the binoculars to look at the moon rising in the east, I was gazing at the rest of the starry night sky when I saw two gray objects directly overhead. I said "what the hell is that?" and my son saw them, too. They were v-shaped, flying with the apex forward, in a southerly direction directly over the west side of Manhattan. There was no sound nor lights, just the two gray v's heading south over Manhattan. They were "cruising"; that is not zooming fast, nor hovering, but steadily flying south. We lost sight of them in the lights of midtown. All in all, less than two minutes of visual contact.

I'm 25 years old, I'm an Idustrial Engineer and I have a Master degrees, i'm studying English in El Paso, Texas. when I was approximately 13 years old, I was in high school, I used to spend my time with Ricardo my Best friend. At that time both we were interested in UFO's subject. I think too much, actually we our idea were to find a way to have contact with them. As a mentioned before in Agust , 1993 we were in Ricardo's house in a big balcon, doing all preparatives to start our mission " to make contact", so 30 minutes after began to sent the first signal,we saw from the left side of our vision, a Spaceship without any form known for us, so we continued transmitting until the point that the UFO was front of us suspended, It scared to me and I went inside of the house leaving my friend alone, but he never stooped transmitting until when I came back and I took him from the Shirt, while the UFO was still aproaching, I could see perfectly all the lights it had, all the windows and the oscilation produced for the suspention of the UFO.we stoped and we turned or heads, and we saw the UFO Disappeared in a second. After that day we never tried again.

Full Description & Details

Our dog drew our attention to the unusual light in the sky as he was whimpering and growling as he watched it from our second storey balcony.

What we saw could be described as a very bright orange spherical light, about the size of a one or two dollar coin ($A) when held at arms length.

Our home is at Palm Beach, overlooking a park and faces directly ESE. The light was directly to the east, over the Rockingham oval or Dixon Rd area.

We watched it move above the treetops in Rotary Park, 500m from our home and as it tracked from right (sth) to left (north) across our vision, it was low in the sky, moved up and down and was moving quicker than a conventional aircraft and much faster than an ultra light.

There was absolutely no noise associated with it. The evening was clear and with little wind. We see all sorts of aircraft here as we are adjacent to HMAS Stirling, Garden Island - RAN Fleetbase West and are very accustomed to helicopters, ultralight and planes.

The light moved out over Cockburn Sound in a northwest direction so we were then looking at it north of our house. It moved from its low position and went upward, continuing to move away and gain in altitude going northerly.

It was then I was able to see it in our telescope as it moved away to the north. It was a spherical illuminated object, orange in colour. As it moved away, and at all times that we observed it, it was bright and orange in colour.

Witness Background

Female, Consultant. Male, General Manager. Dog, Jack Russell/terrier cross.

Other Comments

Our dog is very sensitive to our surroundings and commands a terrific view from our 5m x 5m balcony overlooking Rotary Park. He is the one who should be credited with alerting us to this UFO. As a matter of interest, he does not react to aircraft, or cars or vehicles.

Full Description & Details

At about 8:30 Pm My sister and I were outside in our drive way when she asked me if I saw something in the sky, she was wondering if she was seeing things. I looked up and I saw an object flying northbound. It was a set of circles that formed an open end triangle much like a " > " sign. This object was flying not as high as commercial jet but not as low as private small aircraft. The reason I know this is because shortly after the sighting I saw a commercial jet flying northwest of our location and about one minute later we saw a small private plane traveling east of us. This object was really moving much faster than both of these aircraft. The circular lights that made this formation were not like regular lights, there were no center of brightness the whole circle was evenly lit. There was no sound coming from the object it seemed to just be gliding across the sky. I wondered if it was maybe a balloon but then little before it disappeared the formation of these lit circles changed, they seemed to form an almost circular shape. At the high speed of travel the object changed direction several times, very fluently and smooth- unlike an airplane the angles of change were not like an aircraft at that speed. I told some friend’s but- I don't tell people anymore. They just don't believe.
