Full Description & Details



Reading the recent reports of a triangle shaped object prompted me to write this. In the summer of 1974 around July 4th, I went with a college friend to visit his parents in Lexington , Mississippi. One of his cousins and her friend from the L.A. area of California had also come in for the visit. They were returning to California on a late night flight out of the Jackson airport, so my friend and I drove them to the Jackson airport. After we dropped them off at the terminal, we headed back to Lexington. There was a road that ran adjacent to the Jackson airport that lead to the highway back to Lexington, and we were driving on this road. Far ahead, just above treetop level, there were three very bright lights that were positioned like landing lights on a commercial jet. The two outer lights were like the ones on a jet's wings, and the center at a slighty higher position, like the nose landing light.

We friend and I both observed the lights because of their brightness. I said they must be landing lights. We continued driving down this road and became even more curious because the lights hadn't moved at all. That ruled out their being on a jet so my friend said they must be on the sides and top of a large water tower. We came to a stop sign and needed to turn left. The lights were directly in front of us, maybe 50-100 feet above the treetops, in this heavily wooded area. There were no street lights or buildings around and it was very quiet. We had the windows rolled down in the car and the radio was not turned on.

We sat there looking at the lights wondering what they could be. They were so bright that you couldn't see what was behind them or what they were connected to, much like when you approach a parked car in a dark area and it has its headlights on. You can't see the car at all, only the bright headlights.

My friend was driving and went ahead to make the left turn. The road we were turning onto was a four lane, divided road with a dirt and grass median between the lanes. He pulled across the two lanes that were headed in the opposite direction, across the median area, and then turned left onto the shoulder of the lanes we needed to use. He then stopped the car with the foot brake and sat there with the engine idling. Now the lights were on my right, as passenger in the car. I stared out the window at them and started to become a little frightened because this was unlike anything I'd ever seen. After a short time, my friend took his foot off the brake and started idling slowly down the shoulder.

After we had rolled only 5-10 feet, the lights suddenly rotated towards us to stay pointed directly at the side of the car, but slightly behind the car. After the rotation, they started moving beside the car, at the same speed we were going, and maintaining the position slighly behind. As soon as the rotation occurred and the lights were moving along with the car, I went into a heart pounding panic. I was so afraid of what might happen next, because the object behind the lights was big -- maybe 80-100 feet from the left most light to the right most. And the silence, precision and complete lack of vibration in its movement was unlike anything I had ever seen. I urged my friend to step on the gas and get the hell away, but he hesitated as he craned his neck to look out of the passenger side window. After what seemed like an eternity, he pulled onto the main part of the road and accelerated. As soon as he accelerated, the lights stopped moving, but they slowly rotated to always point directly at the car. I had my head out the passenger window so I could watch it carefully because I was so terrified it would follow us. After we had gone about 500 feet down the road, the lights started moving across the road, always staying rotated to aim at us. The movement was slow, precise and vibration free. When they reached the stand of trees on the opposite side of the road from where we had begun our acceleration, they went down smoothly and disappeared into the trees. At this point, of course, I got a little courage back and urged my friend to turn around and go back to see if we could see anything. He agreed, but we had to drive further until we got to a crossover the median. We then turned and headed back. I watched the area like a hawk during the entire time, but never saw anything else.

When we got back to the median crossover that we had used originally after the stop sign, we stopped on the shoulder before turing around. I peered into the trees but saw nothing. So we turned around at the crossover and headed back toward Lexington. I watched out the back of the car until we got back to Lexington but saw nothing else.

Neither my friend nor myself had anything to drink and didn't use any drugs. We were completely clear headed and lucid when all this occurred.

Full Description & Details

My friend and I were sat in his garden after a barbecue. We were pretty tired but chatting away, smoking cigars. For some reason we both looked up simultaneously and saw a bright emerald green light (approx. 20 times the size of an ordinary star) that appeared to be quite low in the sky swiftly cut across the sky more or less above our heads. It seemed that as we layed eyes on it it suddenly changed direction: literally (though it is a cliche) at 90 degrees and sped off away from us. It was completely silent and the colour and definition of the light was very, very sharp: there didn't seem to be any atmospheric disturbance (i.e. pollution or pollen or whatever) that blurred it's appearance, leading us to believe (along with it's sheer size) to be quite low. Certainly, I'd say, maybe a third to a half of the normal height of regular cloud cover. We both immediately looked at each other and quite casually confirmed to ourselves that we had just witnessed the passing of aero-technology not commonly known to man. It was very eerie but it did not particularly suprise either of us that we had seen it. I think we're both pretty convinced there's an awful lot out there (human or otherwise) we know nothing about. Witney, Oxfordshire, is also very close to Brize Norton air base, so who knows...

Other Comments

People need to stop looking to the government to confirm these sightings or own up to 'undisclosed knowledge'. The government has many responsibilities, admittedly some of them not so noble as others. People need make up their own minds: look at the evidence and draw their own conclusions. And even if they were aliens: so what ? We really need to start making the most of the time we have on this planet, now, without them: the majority of humankind needs to mature, if not outright destroy itself. If you were an alien whizzing around this planet, would YOU want to land and start poking your weird-looking head around corners ? I, personally, would not.

Full Description & Details

It was in the spring or summer of 1997. I was looking out at the mountains from my front porch and talking on the phone. I spotted a large white metallic V-shaped or seagull shaped object gliding very slowly in front of the mountains. It was in view for approximately 30 seconds. I watched it as it moved downward and disappeared between the mountains and the valley below. At first I thought it was a glider but realized it was too large for a glider. I'm guessing that it was about 200 feet or more in length.

Color of Object(s):

white - ionized lights (plasma-type)

Full Description & Details

On a perfectly clear night sky in june 2000 (no clouds) temperature 27 °C, four vertical equidistant bright white plasma-type lights materialized out of nowhere approximately 500 meters to 1 kilometer from my bedroom window at an angle of approximately 10° above horizontal and began drawing four equidistant plasma-type lines from my left to my right. The lines became longer until the 4th second of observation after which they became shorter and became four white bright equidistant ionized points again and then instantaneously disappeared at the 8th second of observation. The velocity of this coordinated motion was slow, determined and constant and was definitely not a climatic phenomenon such as lightning, the moon or stars. Nor can the lights be attributed to the reflection of light beams of cars or trucks off clouds because there were no clouds or from the Eiffel tower which has a rotating lighthouse-type beam. Airplane safety lights or helicopter lights and satelites can also be ruled out. After analysis it became evident that the four bright white points of light and lines were in fact manifestations of a single vessel or ship actually moving in the opposite direction (from my right to the left) which means that the vessel had a very sophisticated system of camouflage enabling it to be invisible to the naked eye. The system of propulsion is almost certainly based on artificially created gravitational pulses with opposite polarization to ordinary gravitational waves. This is based on latest theoretical research in Physics originating in France which illustrates that the quantization of Einstein's equation for the power of gravitational waves in General Relativity admits two symmetrical solutions just as in Dirac's relativistic wave equation. The vessel was either of French or American origin and perhaps of extra-terrestrial origin since only the Airforces of these countries have had the required technology of plasma-magnetohydrodynamics and electro-gravitodynamics for at least 35 years now.

Full Description & Details

I was sitting at my parent's house in the balcony listening to a portable shortwave radio which also picked up the airline frequency. I was listening to the conversations between the airliners and the control towers. I would switch between frequencies so as to listen to the tower and the

aircraft. I started to pickup static which I wasn't picking up before, all of a sudden (since I was already looking up at the sky) a black object came in to my field of view. It was shaped like a tin can in a vertical position. It made no noise, traveled in a straight line. The speed was moderate,

not too slow and not too fast. Around 10 seconds had passed when I realized that it was a UFO.

I called my brother, but he was busy. I told him to please come quickly and upon hearing the urgency in my voice he decided to see what the comotion was. Unfortunately the object just vanished before he got there. It didn't just vanished instantly, it faded away like in a second or two. It was around 2:00 in the afternoon and there where a few scattered clouds. The altitude of the object wasn't very high and it was appro. 200 to 300 feet away.

Full Description & Details

Back in 1983-4 I was living with my boyfriend of several years, Andy, in a rather remote area, an old logging camp with about 8 residences, just 10 miles north west of Sooke, Vancouver Island. One mid summers night around dusk as I was out back with garden chores I could hear an almost undiscernable low hum, I could feel the sound more then hear it. I went to fetch Andy from the house to see if he could hear it, commenting on what a strange sound it was. We decided to investigate together. As we had lived there for several years we were quite familiar with the area, which was approx. 1/2 mile from the ocean, past our logging camp, that would be gated off during forest fire season, there were many connecting back roads consisting of crown lands and logging lots most of which date back forty years. Not far back in from the gate was a forty ft. sand dune with small bushes on top and just past that was an old logging landing, consisting of a large gravel area several hundred ft. wide and long. We actually approached the site through our backyard, through a trail that came upon a small gravel road that ran ajacent to the gated road. The sound increased as we traveled in the near dark, we were very quiet. As we approached the cross roads we could see lights coming from ahead where we know the flat landing site to be, we decided to head up the back of the sand dune where we could get a good view unnoticed. On tummies we crept and peered over the top. I was astounded by what I viewed., and here it is. What I saw was an enormous dark structure, almost filled up the whole site that was a few hundred ft wide, to me it looked like the size of a football stadium, it was long, thin, rounded edges, lights placed strategically along the top edge casting shallow light downward. I was shocked to see nobody around , not a soul, not a recognisable vehicle anywhere. The sound was still louder but so strange I've

never heard anything like it before or since, so low, you could feel it in the ground. I became a little scared at this point but could not peel my very wide eyes away for a second. All the time confirming to each other what we were seeing in very hushed tones. Suddenly, and my heart jumps at just recalling it, one of the lights beamed on us so quick and with blinding intensity that we both jumped back from it in startled surprise, then we ducked just as quickly and ran home the short way. If we didn't have that sand dune to hide upon that light would have blinded one real fast. The next day early we decided to check that out again, to my utter disbelief at 6am the following morning there was no sign of what we had seen. My mind was totally blown when around us was not a tire mark or footprint or any marks from the massive legs that held up this structure, and yet as we walked around we were leaving footprints. I asked the neighbors later if they heard that strange low hum, one neighbor Art Shore an old resident of the logging camp told me oh those are military operations they perform sometimes. That might have made sense if one could have seen a convoy of trucks, like I'd seen before and people on the site, but in view of it now, nothing was ever explained adequately. I never reported to anyone else. As you might have guessed it had a huge inpact on me as even after 20 years it's as fresh a memory as it was the morning following. I have had a few other strange unexplained happenings in my life before and I guess I just chalked it up to "here we go again............."

Other Comments

I could probably draw a pretty accuate drawing of it, most people would discribe it as cigar shaped. I don't know what it was but I'm not convined at all that it had anything to do with our military, I know we have nothing as advanced as what we saw, and no people on the site ......right!! I wished i could have stayed up all that night to watch the skies, but I didn't.....never saw it in flight but there's no other explaination to me as how it got there and left so quick, with ou any visible marks, other then to have flown in ??

Full Description & Details

I guess what makes this sighting so memorable is because it was on my birthday. I was eight years old and all I wanted was a telescope. My mom had given one earlier that day as a birthday present.

That night I went to my friends house who lived on a "dead end" road to test out the telescope.

I caught sight of something floating high above some telephone lines. I decided to scope it out with my cool new toy. I stuck it to my eye and saw something that, to this day, scares the life out of me. It was a spherical object floating above the power lines, high above them. It had definition and a greyish glow about it. As soon as it "caught sight" of me watching it...it pretty much dissapeared in, what seemed like, thin air.

I was so frightened that I slammed my telescope onto the ground, breaking it.

I didnt speak about this experience until about eight years later, to a friend, who is two years older than me.

We got into a discussion about "aliens" and I confessed to him that I believe I had seen a spacecraft around age eight.

He, in turn, told me that he had seen one around age 10. He saw it outside of his window and he was so afraid after the sighting that he didnt leave his home for almost two weeks.

I asked him what month he saw the thing. He told me in the summer..around August.

He described the object and it was the same thing that I saw.

I believe we saw the same thing. It still scares me to think about it.

My ex wife and me were waiting for a bus at the bus stop after watching a movie very close to downtown in Mérida, Yucatán, there were other people waiting, that corner is very close to the movie hall exit.

We were about 15 persons waiting when suddenly my ex wife and I listened like a whisper or surprise and fear, we turned to look and a midle aged woman was pointing up where there was a small building (about 4 floors) and there it was, this big space ship with the above measurements, metal like walls, rectangle windows and a green light inside.

It passed very close to the building, very slowly, so when it was no possible to keep on looking at it, I crossed the street until the paralel street and I saw it once again, then I heard my ex wife's yells and I returned to where she was.

Full Description & Details

I was about 14 at the time this happened. It was a cool mid-summer afternoon like we would sometimes get in NE Ohio. I was a paperboy and my helper (also 14) and I were on our way to pick up our newspapers, which were delivered by truck a few blocks from my home. As we were cutting through some backyards, I commented to my helper how neat the big, fair-weather cumulus clouds overhead looked. The clouds probably covered half of the sky. The atmosphere was very clear, so in between was bright sunshine and deep blue sky. At the moment we looked up, we were both startled to see a silver, disk-shaped object moving rapidly overhead. The apparent size and shape was about that of a nickel held at arms length. The surface appeared polished because it was very shiny in the sunlight. We saw the object disappear into the side of one cloud, emerge from it, then disappear into the next cloud. We never regained sight of it after that. Total elapsed time could not have been more than 10 seconds. Afterwards, I asked my helper if he'd seen what I had seen and he agreed the object he saw had a definite disk shape.

The direction of the object was approximately east to west. It was not directly overhead but off 10 or 15 degrees to our south so we saw it at a slight angle. The speed seemed similar to conventional aircraft we had seen. No unusual manuevers - just a graceful straight-line flight path.

I have never seen anything like it since. I kind of wish I would, just so I could prove to myself that I accurately observed it and it wasn't just teen-age imaginiation.

Other Comments

I think the vast majority of UFO sightings are explainable in prosaic terms. However, there are a few that probably do represent an unknown phenomenon of some type. As to the nature of that phenomenon, I choose to withhold judgement until some real facts are known.
