Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The object was round in shape. Almost like a water tower. It had these bright white lights on each side that shined down into the bayou. It just hovered making no noise at all. It was steel looking, not real shiny but steel like the color you see on a lot of water towers. It wasn't a water tower.
Description of Area / Surroundings
We were on the I-10 Causeway outside of New Orleans. It's built over a swamp. At this point in the Causeway there is nothing really close but up river there are plants and down river the airport. (It was not a plane)
Full Description & Details
We got out of the car, there was no other traffic around. We walked to the side of the Causeway and looked over. The large round silver object with bright white lights at intervals around the sides was hovering in the trees. There was dead silence. No crickets chirping, no frogs croaking, nothing (and this is a swamp area). We stood there in the dark looking and not really talking. We looked to see if the thing had legs and it didn't. It was just hovering. At first I thought it could be a helicopter but of course helicopters make noise. We stood there mesmerized. The next thing we knew we were still standing on the side of the Causeway but now the sun was up. It had to be close to 6 AM by then. But we have no memory of what happened from the time we first got out of the car (when it was dark) and when we "came to" when the sun was up. We both looked at each other and probably said something like "let's get the hell out of here". We never talked about it. Just the other day I emailed him about it and he said he tries not to think about it. I told him I think about it all the time. It disturbs me that I can't remember anything that happened in that hour or hour and a half between dark and sunrise. I've always wanted to know what happened to us. We also saw unexplained objects in the sky over Jacksonville, Florida where we were living back then. And once in Mississippi. But nothing like this.
be explained as any conventional man-made or natural
Not really. If it were just a sighting and we didn't "wake up" when the sun was up then I could maybe blow it off to something else, but even then that would be a stretch. No, I'm fairly sure we saw a UFO and more than likely were taken on board (but neither of us remembers).
I'm basically a housewife. I've done a little of everything over the years. I've worked for PR firms, on political races, been an office manager, a sales clerk (more than once), sold real estate, been an advocate for victims (started the Justice for Pam-Justice for All Rallies during the hunt for a serial killer here in my area), been a secretary at several plants in the area, worked on movies and TV shows and TV commercials (if you go to YouTube and look up The Cajun Spoon....that's me, the old lady), I've done a lot. Always been interested in Egypt and when I was a child wanted to be an archaeologist, Always been interested in the supernatural. I've had some experiences with that too. I have one daughter from my second marriage. Been married 3 times. This last time for 33 years. 3rd times the charm I guess. I went to college but never graduated. Went back to college when I was 50 for a couple of years. Thinking about going back at 65, hey I'm not dead yet. Right now I'm pretty much retired. I do work now and then (more then than now) on movies or TV things. The Cajun Spoon commercial was done for a friend of my daughter who started his own business. No money changed hands for that one. LOL Anyway, I am just a curious person who knows, KNOWS, we are not alone.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I believe we are not alone. I don't even know how anyone could think we're the only game in town. I didn't read or know much about UFO's before then and didn't really pay much attention to or read about after until in the last few years. I am pretty much obsessed with them now. I watch Ancient Aliens constantly. I know they are out there. I want them to come back. I go out every night with my dogs and look into the sky and talk to them. Our world is such a mess I am hoping that they can come back and help us fix it. And NO I'm not nuts. I'm a realist. If you knew me you'd know that I am probably one of the most honest people you'll ever meet. My ex-husband is now a doctor and practices in New Orleans. If you'd like to talk to us I can ask him if I can give you his email address. He's a man of science and not sure if he believes or not. He doesn't want to talk about it. Maybe he does remember something that I don't. But I would really like to remember.
I would love to do something to help others who are like me, people who have seen things. Even if it's just to give them a sympathetic ear.
