Full Description & Details

A friend of mine (Patricia), lives between Bryn Marr & Winthrop. Her apt. window is about 6 or 7 stories up facing west, towards O'hare airport. We were sitting in her living room and she said, look at the pretty lights. So another friend (Ann), and myself went to see what she was speaking of. Patricia said those lights have just been sitting there in one spot all evening, before I made it to her home around 8pm. When I looked out the window there were dozens of planes flying around. some really close others very far but definately more than usual. At first we thought they were flares. But we did not see them fall out of a plane or shoot up from the ground. There were at least 4 lights just slowly fading in & out in a row. One of them slowly hovered up and down. But the thing that struck me is that it was so damn bright. Not like a plane with a few lights and definately not a blimp. It just sat there in one place for hours while other identifiable planes were around. We decided to go the the roof of her building 4 stories higher, and they were still there. Then we thought it could have been planes waiting to gas up or for a place to land. But planes just do not sit like that, not even military fighter planes and with no noise. we can hear evey plane that flew around but these were very quiet. We decided to do some research and they were very much like the lights from Arizona but not as many.

Full Description & Details

On July 28th 2004, around 9:30PM my brother and I who was visiting me from Bulgaria went downtown Chicago to take a few pictures. We took a series of pictures. I got home and my girlfriend wanted to see the pictures. When we open the first one we thought that the object over the city was the moon, but when she zoom the picture we saw something very strange, something that none of as has ever seen before. When I took the photos I saw nothing. We spent some time trying to figure out what it was. We thought it might be some kind of UFO. We have no idea. These pictures were taken by Sony Cyber-shot 4.1 mega pixels camera.

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

I was riding down Highway 90 westbound in a mustang converible when my freind's son asked us what that was in the sky. I looked up to the sky as we passed the airforce base and saw a huge cylinder shaped metallic object tilted at a 45 degree angle high above the runway. There were no planes in the sky at the time which was unusual since there are always fighter jets training. The object was still for a while then rose higher and headed in a eastern direction, then vanished.

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 think it was a Saturday, two weeks after St Valentines day in 2002. I was watching a DVD with my housemate. Around 12.00AM the DVD started skipping, fed up I went out the back for a cigarette. As I walked throught the back door and lit the cigarette I saw four bright orange lights pass right over the roof of the house. After a second look I gained the composure to yell out to my housemate who was sitting in the lounge room. He came running out and we both watched the lights travel from SSE to NNW for what seemed like around four to five minutes.

The lights were travelling in a diamond formation at a constant velocity and altitude. It was difficult to determine the exact size, distance and speed of the objets against the clear night sky but they each looked about the size of a street light and were possibly at an altitude of 100 or 200 metres.

From the backyard we had a clear view over the surrounding suburbs to the north and we watched the lights travel over the coast in perfect formation until we could no longer see them.

It was a clear, quiet summer night with virtually no wind and the objects made no sound at all.

Full Description & Details

We were sitting on my friends couch, and i turned my head and looked out the window and as i was looking I saw a bright ball of light fly threw the sky extremly fast. It stopped suddenly and hovered for about a minute. At first we thought we were seeing things or maybe it was the moon. But then i look over and the moon was in the other side of the sky. I was definitly not a plane because planes can't hover like that. It also didn't make any noise at all so it couldn't have been a helicopter. It was much to big to be a star or a satellite and much to close. Then it moved very slowly from side to side like it was deciding which way to go. Then it finally flew off very fast and was no longer visible.

Full Description & Details

What I and five others saw this (sober ) evening...

time: approx 2350 local July 31st 2004

duration: approx 7 mins

location: guess 15-30km East of Essendon

alt: guess 10-20km

angle from horizon: approx 30 degrees

cloud: cirrostratus + some alto obscuring stars

event:

We noticed two intense, large, flame coloured lights estimated at 15-30km East of Essendon. The lights were well separated and seemed to hover for about 4mins.

The light that appeared higher or further East then appeared to move towards North or descend, whilst the other reacted in the opposite sense. Movement was not symmetrical and large separation was maintained.

The light that appeared to be higher dissapeared as it accelerated to what seemed an Easterly direction, whilst the second dissapeared soon after in an apparent South Easterly direction.

ATC did not record anything unusual.
