Full Description & Details

The encounter started sometime after 9:00 PM on a thursday in March, possibly the 11th. I was sitting in my backyard on the roof of my shed talking on the phone when I leaned back and saw an airplane flying over head. It was obviously an airplane, with standard lights and heading north as most of the sirliners do over Mount Shasta. But as I looked at the airplane, I noticed two faint lights moving next to the plane. One light was behind the other, as if on an invisible square with one light on the bottom left nad the other on the top right. They moved smoothly and passed the air plane. They're movment resembled that of a satlite I'd sen years ago. Not thinking much of it, I began to explain the sighting to my friend on the phone when something undeniably odd happened. From behind the airplane, which was now no longer overhead, came a bow shape of seven or eight lights with one of them off set slightly from the others. They moved in the same fluent speed as the others, but as they passed overhead they broke apart, all still heading north out of my range of vision.

Overwhelmingly dumbfounded and excited by the encounter, I rushed inside and told my family and friend who had been living with us at the time. After explaining what had happened, my younger brother and friend went and stood in the backyard, watching the skys. Not long after, my friend and I spotted another sort of bow shaped set of lights heading north, but my brother didn't see it. We waited even longer, maybe 20 or 30 minutes, then saw a triangle shaped set of lights, which my brother also saw.

We waited for at least two hours in total watching the sky, and saw a few more less notable sets of lights. Toward the end, there were single lights that flew more irratically, which I now belive were owls or bats or the like.

Full Description & Details

15:30 On my way to Michigan Governer's Residence to work on security systems. Sitting on freeway exit ramp on upward incline (5 deg?) facing west north west waiting for traffic to clear.

I see a Boeing 727 accelerating after takeoff from Lansing Airport. The 727 is gaing alititude gently tracing a path from my left to right. (Air corrador runs approximatly north east to south west in that area). Flight path is just above the center of my view through windshield. Aircraft is backlit approximatly 30 deg to my left. Sun is not directly visible from my location. Shortly after 727 came into view (fist width at arm length) I saw what appeared to be a bright spherical object aproach the 727 from behind and slightly below at very high velocity (two to three times speed of 727). The object raced past the 727, traveled about five or six times the length of the aircraft and came to an abrupt stop. Reversed course and flew past 727 at hight rate of speed ascross and in forground of 727. Traveled aproximately 1/3 of the length of 727 past tail and made an extreemly tight, slightly inclined turn around 727 tail to the left. (Incline was down to up within verticle dimension of tail fin). The object flew paralell to 727 to point approximatly 1/4 727 length from tail and started to corkscrew spiral around 727 at about twice the 727's ground speed parallel to 727's flight path. Dimention of spiral relaitive to 727 appeared as if it just cleared the main wings. Object spiraled past 727 to about one and a half times 727 length and reversed course to 727 on flat tragectoy opposing 727...there is more...

Full Description & Details

My family of five including myself had just stepped outside our home to enter our family car. I recall the aproximate time of being just between 6:30pm and 7:00pm on a Sunday evening. I recall this time because it was the usual time our family left to attend Church services on each Sunday evening. I do recall an early spring shower had just fallen because my dad had pulled the car to the front of our home making it more accessible to us because of some continuing drizzle.

We had all started to the car when one of us (I do not recall which one) pointed and said what in the world is that thing? I do recall looking up toward a North Westerly direction to see a strange oval shaped object rolling end over end passing directly overhead. I recall the object giving off different colors in a pulsing, vibratory sort of way. I would only be guessing at this point now but I would estimate it's altitude to be less than 300 feet off the ground. I do recall my father saying it looks like it may land nearby.

I do not recall hearing any sound whatever from the object but my brother and sister say it was somewhat like a humming sound that an electrical transformer on a power line would make.

I do not recall any of us being frightened but more curious and amazed would best describe our reaction. We did not report this to anyone but I do recall our hometown newspaper being full of accounts of the sightings the next day.

Full Description & Details

Aproached home as I cleaned pool in the evening. I ran and called wife and chiilden. Wife came out of house. The craft was then over the pool area. It was not moving. It was 50-75 feet above us. Very clear; we saw round windows on upper dome, concave bottom with 2 long rectangular devices inside concave section. A window about 10-12 feet long and 4 feet wide in the leading edge section but underneath the lower section of craft. It has ski like devices with a strange design but to close to leading edge and not near a center of gravity of craft. One solid piece no visible connections. Liuminous soliid skin. IT seemed to float but slight wobble. It leaned forward and we could see top portion. An orange blusih light emanating from window but no visible persons/beings. Afterwards it lleft heading Southeast at about 30 MPH.

During ordeal, we were frozen in awe, slightly scared but motionless and speechless. Wife kept saying "Oh my God" over and over.

I instructed my wife not to speak of it, to draw what she saw and then we compared notes.

Full Description & Details

I was awaiting a bus home on the outskirts of town when I saw the object, a large, glowing ' ball of fire' with a trail, going horizontal to the horizon, roughly North to South , a man came along and stood near me at the bus stop, I watched the object, so did he, I glanced at him and he me, I said to him '' are you seeing whatI'm seeing ? '' he replied ''yes''. I then said that I thought it may be the comet they were talking about on the news earlier that day, he agreed.

We watched the 'comet' for several minutes.

Later, when I arrived home, the late evening news was on, so, I guess it was around 10pm by then, the news was talking about the comet, I said to my husband ''ah, I just saw that at the top of Birkfield Drive'' my husband said '' don't be silly, they jusy said it cannot be seen from Earth as such. What the heck had I seen then ?

I have often wondered if I ought to try and find that man at the bus stop to confirm my story. Let me know if you guys ever hear from him !

Witness Background

Other Comments

the 'comet' came up from the town direction on a north-south path, if we call the horizon ' the 9 to 3 line on a clock, the 'comet' was travelling at 10 to 2 path, just above the horizon.

our local paper here is THE EAST ANGLIAN DAILY TIMES, and its sister paper THE EVENING STAR. I do not know if anything was reported, I no longer remenber the date, my daughter was born 29TH August1975, and she was a baby at the time of the sighting, it was a cool evening, so, sometime from Sept 75 - Apr76 I guess, IT WAS A NIGHT WHEN A KNOWN COMET WAS DUE

Full Description & Details

I was on my back patio, looking through my binoculars to find my usual sattelite sightings. This was the second paticularly clear nights. I found one sattelite following it's normal West to East path, when I spotted another much fainter sattelite directly above it heading in the opposite direction. Only much much faster and farther out. I followed it for a moment, and then noticed it split into two. I shook my head and refocused the lense, and saw it again, still two. Now following parallel to each other at a speed I have never seen a satelite fly. Then it did something strange, it would come back into one, then split out into two, heading about a 45 degree angle away from each other, then come back to parallel each other. But sometimes they would jump backwards, as if my vision jumped. Only, they did it a few times. I would keep my eyes off center, and keep a major star in focus and steady to jude the movement of the objects. They were definately jerkish and would shoot out fast then come back a little then join together and head out. I followed them until out of sight, about 3 minutes in all. They made the other sattelite seem slow like an airplane, but I have been watching sattelites long enough to know the difference. Plus I fly. This thing was in my estimation about twice the distance of the sattelite I was watching, very faint, but clear enough to see it's movements. This was no sattelite. Moving at 90 degree angles, 45 degree angles in a split second. It was quite amazing. I truely hope some day, I see them again. It was remarkable. My background has included being a Police Officer-Reserve, a volunteer with the Fire Department, and trained in Disaster Response with UMCOR through a FEMA training program. This event was clearly not an airplane, sattelite or shooting star.

Full Description & Details

It was around the 13th of August either 1969 or '70. We lived in a 6th floor apt in Port Chester, NY (about 25 miles north of NYC). I was out on the terrace waiting to see early meteors (it was the first night of the Perseid meteor shower).

I faced the direction from which they were supposed to arise. It was only about 12:15 a.m., too early to expect to see anything much. It was nice and dark that night.



Then low on the horizon, a bright light appeared. I remember thinking, “wow, this is going to be quite a show”, when two boomerang-shaped things - one slightly "ahead" of the other, but rigidly constant in their position to each other, flew over. They were a luminous silvery green or blue color... the color of a cool flourescent light bulb when it's on.



The glowing objects crossed the entire sky, from the horizon to a point directly overhead and then over my building, where they disappeared from my view, in about 3 seconds. Maybe it was as little as 1 second. It was extraordinarily fast and totally silent.

I remember this as if it just happened a moment ago. Ofcourse I'll never forget it. I didn't call the airforce, or the police, I just put on the radio and called the host of an all night radio show and told him what I'd just seen. His response was something like,”wow, that’s wild, that’s cool.”

I did NOT return to the terrace to see the meteor shower. Nothing falling thru the atmosphere could have matched what I'd just seen.



The next morning, I called the Westchester County airport to ask whether any new planes were being tested (as if they would have told me, or as if they would even have KNOWN) or if anyone had reported seeing anything strange in the skies the night before. I expected and got the answer, “no.”



That August night in Port Chester, NY was NOT the first time I saw a UFO. It sounds suspect even to me, but there were dozens of people who saw what I will now describe.



In 1967 and 1968 we went to the precurser of the BIG Woodstock music festival - in Woodstock, NY. Both were held on labor-day weekend in September. 68. (These 2 small festivals were the inspiration for the famous, enormous Woodstock festival and I'm sure that many attendees were stoned on marijuana by the time IT happened...... but, mass hypnosis? You judge.



I was lying on a blanket looking up at the night sky (always loved to sky-watch) and saw what was "obviously" satellite, slowly crossing the sky. I'd seen satellites before and knew what they looked like. A gentleman adjacent to our spot on the lawn heard me say "look, a satellite" -- and he yelled out for folks to look up. OK, now dozens, maybe 100s of us were watching, when suddenly this "satellite" stopped moving for afew moments. Then, it turned. Stopped again. ( Now folks were yelling & screaming... ) and then it turned some more, wiggled about, and suddenly whooshed up and away fading into the darkness. ( I could say, at the speed of light!)



Unbelieveable, a year later, same festival, my "neighbor ono his blanket" wasn't there but the announcer onstage heard people yelling to look up, and again, we all did, and AGAIN, we all saw the same performance.

Was this mass hypnosis? Did someone have a powerful flashlight? It was the dawn of laser beam technology… could someone have gone to so much trouble? But… there were no clouds in the sky. Lots of stars.

Iit wasn't until a year LATER, when I had the really awesome experience, that I realized I was one of the few lucky people to have actually seen UFOs.

I believed in them for years before I ever saw one.



That’s my story. I’ve meant to tell it all to one of these UFO watcher groups, or to the AirForce, or to someone doing serious research I really wouldn’t know WHERE to go with it. But until then, it's not something I usually discuss; I don't feel like being pigeonholed as some sort of weirdo who makes up wild stories or has hallucinations.

Other Comments

This is the first time I have ever "publically" told of my experience. I have longed to contact the "right" people... and still am not sure if your website is the way to go... but it's a start. This happened so long ago that, unless I find my old agenda, or something with a date on it, I won't really know whether it was 68, 69 or 70. I regret not having made an official report to -- who? The Air Force? oh well... the best possible thing for me would be to have SOMEONE confirm that they saw this event.... I was totally sober, wide awake, not on drugs;

Full Description & Details

I was traveling with my parents on a bus to the Iguazu Falls in northern Argentrina at that time. It was a package tour , so we were all traveling with the other 20 people all the time. We had stayed over in the city of Parana , in the souther part of the Mesopotamia Region in Argentina and had departed around 4.30AM from Parana northwards towards the city of Resistencia in the province of Chaco.Around 5am, before dawn , I think it was my mother, that spotted 2 lights,and I remember she asked me if there was an airport nearby, as she thought it to be a plane ( the size of the lights more or less matching that of a low flying plane) . I know there is no airport in that area, it's farmland and very scarcely inhabited...soon after the lights stopped moving in any particular direction and that was what brought us to pay a grater attention to the event.

The lights were then 3 and formed a line and then one of them started moving up and down ( consequently building triangles at all times) in very rush movements stopping and moving in a very unreal way. ( more or less like one might do pointing the beam of a torch on a wall and moving them in a quick way)..By that time the bus stopped and some of us got off in the deserted route. Teh movements continued for a fes more munites always in the same area in the sky.Soon after, on of the lights separated from the formation, at forst quite slowlyand the with an incredible speed disappered into the horizon.The 2 other lights followed suit soon after that.

Full Description & Details

My spouse and I were sitting on our deck in the back yard when we noticed a flashing white behind us. The light appeared to be bouncing between our neighbor's house and garage. The light stopped for a few seconds and then started up again. My spouse stood up to find the source and spotted a strange object in the sky.travelling from the north, parralell to our front street. The object was triangular in shape, with a green, yellow and red light at each corner.

The object continued in a southerly direction in what appeard to be a steady height. At one point the object seemed to turn on its axis so that the red light was the dominant color seen; the other two lights were visible behind the red light. The red light continued to flash for a few more seconds, it then became more intermittent, until it dissapeared.

When I told my son about this, he advised me that he and his friend had spotted one earlier in the evening, while it was still daylight They were driving down Merriam towards Riverside Dr and spotted an object hovering over our house (or close to it). The object was at a relatively high altitude,. Because of this he thought it could be a plane, but it only had one yellow flashing light. As well, the object did not 'fly away,' but simply disapeared.
