It moved really quick, I'm sure it was out of our atmosphere and was a very clean dot, with a bright red glow, it had no glare, the colour of the light was constant and there was not trail. It covered half the night sky in seconds before sstopping and darting of at a phenominal rate and dissapeared from view.

Full Description & Details

My wife and I had gone to some friends' dinner party in the Heights neighborhood of Houston, TX one afternoon around Memorial Day, if I remember correctly; it's been about 17 years, but it wasn’t yet oppressively hot, so it must have been very early in summer. We were all in the backyard while the food was cooking; around a quarter to six in the evening, one of the guests, who was lying in a hammock behind me called my attention to something in the sky that he'd been observing for some moments.

"What do you think those are?" he asked. I looked up and noticed some very bright orange lights, the color of hot coals when blown upon; they seemed to be round and not extremely large, but it’s hard to estimate their size. There was a light scattering of high cirrus or cirrostratus clouds at the time, and these lights gave the appearance of being well beyond them, so they must have been at a fairly high altitude. As I watched for a few moments, I estimated about 12-15 of these objects; I can't say exactly how many there were because of the amount of time that has passed and because of the fact that some of the objects moved around while others appeared stationary and sometimes some of them were briefly obscured by the cirrus clouds. I quickly called the attention of the other guests to these objects. There were perhaps a dozen of us present at the time and everyone looked up to watch this odd spectacle.

It was quite unlike anything any of us had ever witnessed before. While four of the objects appeared to maintain a steady position the others would suddenly move and stop again just as suddenly. The movements didn't appear to be random but rather to form patterns between the moving objects and with the stationary objects, which themselves formed a sort of quadrangle. The moving objects would sometimes move separately and sometimes by two’s or three’s together; they would form polygonal shapes among themselves, and one vertex of these polygons would itself form a triangle with a side of the stationary quadrangle. The movements would start and stop suddenly without any other evidence of propulsion, such as smoke or vapor trails, etc. The movements themselves appeared very leisurely, but considering the altitude that these objects seemed to be at, the distance covered must have been considerable, as these objects occupied perhaps half of the sky overhead for a good 12-15 minutes. Some of the guests watched them for a few moments and then lost interest, while others of them watched them until they moved off out of sight. Finally about 6:00 pm, the majority of these objects, including the apparently stationary center of the group moved off out of view to one side of the side of the sky while the remaining three moved off in the opposite direction; I’m afraid it’s been too long to confidently state which compass directions those would have been. Their departing motion seemed to be just as unhurried as their “maneuvering” had been.

Just in case anyone’s wondering, some of the guests had been drinking alcohol (it was a Texas barbecue, after all), but I myself was a confirmed teetotaler at the time. I can categorically state that these objects, whatever they might have been, were neither weather balloons, secret military test aircraft, Venus, Jupiter, swamp gas or any of the other claims with which such sightings are typically written off. Their manner of sudden motion, sudden stopping and subsequent motionlessness were inconsistent with any known system of craft propulsion, and I find that it stretches credibility to the breaking point to suggest that such methods of propulsion might have been developed in secret without any hint of such a technological advance leaking out at some point. We did not report the sighting to any authorities – what would be the point? Nor did we ever hear of any subsequent corroboration by any other witnesses, or at least none that my wife or I knew of.

Full Description & Details

A friend and I saw a large (maybe 250 to 300 feet across) black triangle shaped object out in the desert one night. There was NO sound coming from it, and it hoovered about 700 to 1000 feet above the ground. We were out on the desert, near Giant Rock (a well-known place near Landers, Ca.), riding dirt bikes at the time. We were wondering if the Tweenty-Nine Palms Marine Corps. Base was doing any drills that night, as we usually like to go there and watch them from a distance. The M.C. base is on the other side of Means Dry Lake, and we often see lights (flares with parachutes) launched from there. At the time of the encounter, I owned 5 acres of land and a house just outside Landers. Giant Rock is about 4 to 5 miles from my house, and we can see most of what's going on when the M.C. does its excersizes. We thought we saw something going-on over on the lake bed, so we decided to jusm on our bikes and take a closer look. When we got there, I noticed that some of the stars weren't shining. This made me more than a little curious, so I drove down closer. I noticed that the closer I went to where the stars were blotted-out, the more the "thing" moved! I didn't want to get too close, so I stayed back and let my buddy cath up with me. I guess I was about less than a half mile when I stopped, and this thing was huge. I used to fly ultra-light airplanes back then, I have 20/15 vision, and can tell the distance of just about anything. (I know, "at night, it's hard to tell anything" !) This is the first experience I've had with things of this nature, and the very first time I've written anything about it. I tried to tell some of my friends about it, and got laughed at... So I shut-up about it until now. I'm wondering if the U.S.Govt. is doing some "secret tests", or if what I saw has another explaination. My buddy, who saw it also, isn't alive any more, so I can't substantiate my viewing. His family wanted to know what we'd been drinking at the time. (We don't drink!) Sure wish I'd had a video camera that night. I would have taken a picture of "nothing", with stars all around it!

After nearly half an hour, with this thing moving slowly, stopping, then moving slowly again (about walking speed), it just vanished. I was talking to my buddy, and we saw it was there one second and gone the next. It appeared to go North East and was gone in less than 2 seconds. We "got the hell out of Dodge" after that, as if it could go that fast away from us, it could surely come back as fast!

The next day, at first light, we went back to where we'd seen the thing. There was no trace of anything, as the wind had scoured the sand and rocks that morning.

We talked about it all the way home, and some time after that... But we stopped talking about it when we saw what other people thought about it. My buddy died the next year, and I don't care if anybody believes me or not.

Full Description & Details

I have read most UFO reports and encounters but none compare to the experience my wife and I had in the Santa Clarita Valley.

This happened in 1978 but it is something you cannot easily forget and led to me reading and researching all I can find on the subject.

We are not at shy about speaking about it. We were lucky to see what we saw and openly speak about it.

I only wish that we could go through a hypnosis to repeat the experience. Perhaps you can help us on this.

It was a warm summer Friday night and I was standing on the upper deck of the swimming pool, brushing the sides with a long pole and brush attached to it. The pool lights were on. Our kids, were planning to swim the next morning and I wanted the pool clean. My wife and kids were watching television approximately 40 feet from were I stood. It was around 9:30 PM.

As I moved my hands upwards to grab the upper end of the pole something caught my vision. It was a craft approaching at a low altitude perhaps a block away. It had lights on the front portion that clearly did not look like a helicopter. We were used to seeing Sheriff helicopters patrolling over our neighborhood, often flying low or hovering over our pool area to get glances of my wife and her friends laying out. We often waved them off using one finger.

I kept looking at the approaching craft and then realized it was not a helicopter but something very different. I ran to our back door and yelled at my wife and kids to come and see what I was seeing. Only my wife got out and by that time the craft was right above our pool area stationed there. It seemed as if it floated and had a slight wobble as if it were caught in a slight wind.

The craft was no higher than 60 feet above us. It was metallic shiny solid and shaped as those you see in movies. It had a upper dome with windows around it. The body was one solid piece, no obvious connectors. It had ski like device in the upper front but not centered, so it may have been some form of docking device because it was too far forward. I later tried to draw the angles and design of the ski like device and was unsuccessful. I remember that it was a very strange angle and design.

The craft had a window jut bellow the front leading edge of the saucer shape. That window was at least 4 X 8 feet long. We could see bluish/orange glow inside but no occupants. The center of the craft was concave and two rectangular shaped objects were inside the concave area. The height of the craft was the equivalent of a 1 1/2 story house and with a total diameter of approximately 75-80 feet.

The craft tilted forward and downwards and we could see the upper section and could tell the light on top was not reflecting from out swimming pool lights but that it came from crafts skin since there were no other visible lights other than those in the very front or leading edge of saucer shape. I think this is why people report seeing glowing crafts.

My wife, Gloria, kept repeating "oh my god" over and over. I was fixated on details and design. I have to admit that I was somewhat scared but almost frozen staring at something that was not supposed to be there. Like seeing a Greyhound Bus floating over your pool.

The craft was over our house for approximately 30-45 seconds. Afterwards it resumed moving Southeast at about 30-40 MPH and at the same altitude. It never made a sound. I jumped on a 6 foot wall to continue seeing for approximately 3-4 miles.

I told my wife not to speak to go inside draw what she could and then compare notes.

My background includes a Certificate in Group Propulsion Systems. I attended Northrop Institute of Technology planning to be an Aeronautical Engineer but then switched to business. I served as an executive in several Fortune 500 computer companies and was cofounder of two companies. One of my companies had substantial clients in Europe including Kuwait Petroleum International retail operations, Bell South, and software joint ventures in India. I consider myself a serious person who takes this subject very seriously.

I am fully convinced that world governments, including ours, knows very well of the presence of extra-terrestrial visitors to our planet but are afraid to share this with the public.

Triangle

Color of Object(s):

Black

Full Description & Details

Traveling in heavy trafic the black triangular object was hovering, quite still in the sky, over the motorway in plane sight. The object would have been so visible that anyone driving past could see it clearly, and we assumed it was quite a normal peice of security surveilance equiptment, since nobody took any notice of it.

The later sighting took place on a different occation at dusk, hovering slightly to the side of the motorway into Belfast, having green and red lights on it - we can't recall which were on the tips of the triangle and which were toward the midle of it, but that appeared to be the confirguration.

Witness Background

Social Policy, previously peace and conflict mature student, now taking PhD.

Other Comments

we never bothered to report this to anyone because we considered it must be an entirely normal aspect of the security survelance that takes place going into and out of Belfast. Non of our family know much about aircraft, so what we have seen could easily be something very well known, that we don't know about. Other people are talking about black triangles as if they are something unusual however, so we thought we had better report the ones we saw.

Full Description & Details

First notice a white light moving off the coast. Thought it was a plane but not flashing. It was no big deal, but had my attention. Then, one at a time 3 very bright lights lit up stationary one at a time. Very colorful, high in altitude. They went out at once. Then a moment later 5 more lights lit up just west of the first. Thes second sighting was just beside the first (on the right). These lights were very bright and lit on at a time and went out at once. These sightings were very far out off shore and at a hight alltitude. I noticed the second set of lights reflected down to the horizon either as a focused beam or reflecton, but again these light were very high up. So, this had to be very intense light. Anyway, 10 min. later 2 fighters buzzed up the coast line east to west, then about 10 mins after that either the same two or another set of fighters passed the same path but futher off shore. One last thought, after the two sightings, I saw two white lights leaving the area. One west the other eastward. Then after 10 sec. the eastward light changed paths and followed the second light. Finally. I was on vaction and prior to today, I had no Idea that this was a UFO hotspot. So, was not looking for this, but I;m very open to this. Please call me I you wish to talk. 770-906-2993.
