Full Description & Details

We were home watching TV. We all went to Sullivan County Community College together. My dog Amber was hooked onto a very long rope outside the house staked into the ground. Our house was in a wooded area. It was about 9-10 P.M. in late Sept or early Oct 1976. I heard a loud whizzing sound and Resa and I opened the door to call to my dog. We weren't sure what the sound was. I saw something crash and make a very loud noise. I saw trees light up. It looked like a fire or something. It was pitch black cause the house we rented was in the woods. I called to my dog but she didn't answer. Then a shrieking sound started and it seemed to get closer to the house.

I screamed Amber's name again but she didn't come but the sound got louder. My body just froze, and I filled with fear. I could not move and I told Resa to close the front door,something was out there. She clung on to me and managed to take her foot and slam the door shut. Something was out there and after the door was shut we heard it run around the side of the house. We heard the leaves ruffle outside our windows. It did not come into the house but we heard something outside for at least an hour or so. I dont know what it was but I felt very strange and scared. Whatever it was it had a horrible screech, almost like when cats are having a really bad cat fight but much louder and shriekier. Resa and I were so frightened that I didn't call to my dog for at least 2 hours. My dog was gone. The next day a friend of mine from school told me that Amber was outside his house that night about 10:30 so he took her inside and that I should come to pick her up later that day. He lived about 7 miles from us. Amber seemed shaky and scared, somehow different when i picked her up. Our other friend was downstairs the entire time and said she heard noise but didn't see anything. The forth person wasn't home at the time. Other people at school saw the fire and something fall from the sky the evening before. The light in the woods continued for about 45min after it crashed. I heard police and other cars there during the evening but I was to frightened to leave my house until the morning. I never felt this type of fear before to the point that my body froze and since that day have never felt that way again. I literally could not move my arms, legs hands and I know Resa couldn't either. It took every ounce of courage and mind strength for her to slam that door and I am sure that she saved us from whatever was out there.

I also saw a UFO in 1995 on my way up to Disney World. It was two round circles that looked like moons( irridesant color) flying above in the sky as my friend Adrianne drove and her daughter nicky saw it also. My son was in the car but was only3 years old at the time. The two circles were connected and flew slowly in the sky.

Full Description & Details

I was 9 years old and heading home from a babysitting job in the summer of 1965. I said good night to the family and said I would see them tomorrow. I left, I was about three minutes from their home when I notice an object in the sky. It was nightfall, the stars were out and it was very clear. I am not sure why I looked up. I looked up and saw the bright light. At first I wasn't scared. I was curious, but as I moved it began to move with me, I ran and it was faster than myself. It was in front of me in a matter of a split second. I stopped to gaze up at it and it hovered above. Then all of a sudden it moved, It moved like lightening. I couldn't believe how fast it moved. I was terrified, I could feel my heart beating, then I stopped being scared and stood there watching it and it seemed like hours, but it was only a few minutes. I wasn't frightened anymore, not sure why I wasn't. But I do remember looking up as it moved in a quick motion. Like a quick jerk. then it was in another position. It did this for three positions and then it left so quickly, you couldn't see where it went. Like magic. I started walking home fast. On my way, my brother met me. Was coming to check up on me. I guess, I was running late, it only takes about ten minutes to get home from their home, I took time to watch the object and wasn't keeping track of time. My father worried and sent my brother to see if I was playing around. I never told him what I saw. I am not sure why? But to this very day, I have told but only four people, my husband, two sons and a friend. I never mentioned it again. I found out what they were when I got into high school. When it was a topic in our english class. I suddenly remembered the object I viewed when I was 9 and realized what I saw was a UFO. I kept asking question upon question and couldn't get my hunger for the topic satisfactory. So I began to read about UFOs. After the year of high school ended, I never thought much of the sighting. I seem to reflect on it now and again. And wonder?

I know what I witness back in 1965 was a UFO. I know that for sure now. I think about it more and more. The more I ponder, the more convinced I witnessed a UFO.

Full Description & Details

I was in our house watching TV. Six of my family members were out in the back yard. We were having a small cook-out, because it was Labor Day weekend.

I then heard my mom calling me to come out quick and see something. I ran out to see what was going on. They pointed up ito the sky and said " look, what is that? "

I looked up and didn't know what to say. I saw a strange object. It was a globe about the size of a small private plane. It was spinning as it went by. It looked like black metal, but it was very shinny, like a mirror. I could see the sun reflecting off of it. It came from the east and was heading west. It was silent as it went by. It was a very clear evening, and i could see it very well. It was low in the sky as it went over our next door neighbor's house. I was in complete awe as i looked at it. As it got further in the western sky it appeared as a bright light. It is hard to explain, but before it was out of sight, it became a bright light.

I was excited about seeing the object. No one really knew what to say about it. I tryed to talk about it with all my family members that saw it. I guess its hard to talk about something you don't know about. I tryed to tell some friends about it, but they thought i was crazy or nuts.

In conclusion, i think there is a massive amount of life outside of our planet, and it's really no big deal.

Full Description & Details

The last and most incredible sighting:

We were sitting on the beach with a fire, for mine and a pals shared birthdays, when I saw these lights headed towards Maui from the direction of Oahu. I thought they were headed towards the airport here onm Maui, but these bright lights, turned and headed along the Kihei beach, slowly.

It was shaped like a eight sided object ---but long tube like .. About 2/3rds along the length... there was a break in the object, and then there was a second (same 8 sided shape tube) closely behind it..didn't look connected, but it could have been--and as it passed I saw many darting lights flying around the end of the object. There was the annual August meteor showers, and you could see them above this object. It seemed to be translucent..meaning we could see though it, but it had lights all along the six sided shape..outlined like. But I thought I could see stars though the long shape...It was like it was outlined in bright neon light, but you could see through it.

It was huge, and we all got really alert, and I was scared. I don't scare easily.

It flew slowly in front of us--then turned left, and flew over the top of Haleakala...and then we heard later (from other people her on Maui) down the other side and then gone. The whole state was a buzz with this for a few days, then silence...except for those that were together. We call it "The Sighting".

I had good friends having a bon fire directly up the mountain from where we were, and they saw the exact same thing.

I am an inter-Island sales rep--and a few days later..flying to Kauai, I met someone on the plane who said that they had seen the same thing on Kauai, and so did many others there.

At the opening of the Super Computer site (partial military) open house a few weeks later--I asked a representative from the LArge Telescope company--why they don't admit that what we all saw here in Hawaii..was a UFO--after two short diverting answers to my repetetive questioning..he finally said..because the public couldn't handle the news.

A second sighting in my life----Many years earlier--on the back side of Maui--up in Kanaio, I was in a hot tub, and layed my head back on the ledge of the tub--and saw three lights flying over the rim of the Haleakal Crater. They were blue lights. I watched them, as they traveled just over head...for a few minutes.then they all of a sudden turned RED and moved very very quickly forward, and then disappeared.

Full Description & Details

After work around 3:00 am in the morning, a gentleman friend and I went to Lake Chabot dock and chatted as we enjoyed the moonlight. Suddenly, we heard a hovering sound, looked up and saw a huge 100' wide metal saucer with colored lights. It lowers itself into the mountains as though it was hiding. All light from the moon was gone. My friend ran. I wanted to stay and look, but as I looked back at my friend I realized it was pitch dark and I couldn't see the pathway back to our car. If you want more details, please feel free to contact me at 510.798.4443. I did not make this up. I know it sounds weird and I never would have thought that I would be one to say, "I saw a UFO". Actually, I try not to tell anyone for I don't want to suffer his or her criticism, but I have to be true to myself. I actually feel privilege to have seen what I saw. Thanks!

The triangler object was moving slow then the object would stay still as if the object knew I was watching. Then the red,yellow,blue,and white lights twinkled even more rapidly made jerky left and right movments. After that the object moved slowly to the north east and I watched the object with my binoculars until I lost sight of it.Note: I only notice the object because I had a feeling someone was watching me and I just happened to look up noticed a odd shape in the night sky. I then knew it was no star when I noticed movement. All this on my way to work.

Full Description & Details

Noticed 2 large bright lights approaching me as I was proceeding up Ganttown Rd at intersection of Egg Harbor Rd. This object was at my approx. 10 o' clock position while I was waiting for the red light to change (I was now stopped). While waiting for the light to change I noticed that this "thing" didn't appear to be moving. It seemed too big and too low to be landing or taking off (Cross Keys Airport within 5-6 miles) and the lights, although very bright, didn't defract at all--I have very bad astigmatism and most light sources to me are very defractive in nature (not crisply defined) and are more starburst in appearance. These lights however were perfectly shaped and round. I thought to myself that this "plane" was maybe a helicopter hovering but when the traffic light changed green and I went forward, I started to notice the 2 lights were actually 4 lights. The road bends to the left thereby gaining a better side view of this object where it remained. As I approached from this angle I was then enlightened to the fact that there were also 2 more "perfect" lights on the rear section plus 2 beautiful red lights at the rear-somewhat inset it seemed-and the red ones were very slowing "pulsing". Not blinking, not strobing like conventional aircraft, mind you--just pulsing. Alternating every 1-2 seconds. As the object now became more visible to me at my 9 o'clock position I was so in amazement that I literally stopped my vechicle in the middle of the road. This thing was about 1/4 mile away, again only about 500-800 feet above ground and not moving. I rolled down my window to see if I could hear any rotor blade noise ( I was now thinking it must be a helicopter because it was just perfectly still) but it was whisper quiet. I was waiting for another car to pass to gain their attention but much to my amazement---honest to God---no one else was around. I could see other cars on the next cross street (Hurfville-Cross Keys Rd) but none came down or up Ganttown Rd. at this time. I stayed in observation for at least 30-40 seconds when all of a sudden this thing lept forward (with respect to its flight direction) at least 1/4-1/2 mile and slightly away from me (to its right) within a 1/2 a second !! This scared the living Hell out of me such that I screamed "oh shit!", put my truck in gear and sped toward the next intersection. I had a green light, made my left and knew that within a 1/8 mile I would be able to observe this thing from the rear because there was a good sightline that way. I sure enough saw it a good 1/2 mile away, still at the same perceived height, red rear lights slowly pulsing and then I had to make the right hand turn on Altair Drive into my development. I proceeded down Altair drive, a tall-tree lined street with some slight bends/curves while literally shaking with fear, excitement, etc. when all of a sudden this same object (or looked to be the same)

appeared above the tree line approx. 500-600 feet above me coming from my 10 0'clock in a path to my 4 o' clock position. I think I screamed and then stopped the truck.

I rolled down the window and stuck my head out of it to gain a sight from and underneath vantage point. It moved diagonally across me very very slowly, and I literally yelled "what the hell are you!". As I did so I could now see some semblence of structure. It was dark out but I could see that this thing was more boomerang in shape. With 4 forward lights, 2 outside rear lights and 2 recessed/inset red lights. I could now see 4 more "underbelly" lights and what seemed to be its shape of a boomerang like resemblence. As it passed by I was amazed at how slowly and quietly it went by. There's no human-made craft that can accomplish this with our current knowledge of physical science, this I can assure you.

After it passed over me (took about 20-30 seconds) I sped home and rushed into the house to alert my family. I was evern paranoid that it had followed me and rushed back outside to see if it had. It didn't but what an experience. It was 5 years ago and I still remember it as vividly as I did back then. I even drew sketches showing my vantage points and observations. As a matter of fact, because I thought I was going crazy or something I called my local Police Dept (the next day) to see if there were any sightings

that evening in the general area (no, was the answer).

I actually reported this to an online UFO reporting sight but they wanted me to upload pictures, etc. and I just didn't feel like going thru all of that.

Full Description & Details

I was out with my girlfriend to watch a meteor shower. While it was still rather early in the eveniong for that activity, I was pointing out various planet positions for that night , and where we should look in the sky/horizon directions for our best viewing, when Carolyn pointed to a rather bright object in the sky that I could not identify.

It was just a bright light, that I at first that was a oncoming helicopter, but after several minutes it turned red, then blue, then white agian, and it began to "squiggle" in the sky.

We watched this for several minutes, and then a large plane, probably a commercial aircraft, flew by, and the object came to a complete standstill in the sky, anyone looking at it would swear it was just a star. I watched the object with much stricter attention now, and sure enough, it began the squggling again.

Carolyn was also witnessing everything I was witnessing as it happened, we even stated out loud what we were seeing to be sure we werent each having different different eye problems or something. We were both getting quite excited and kinda creeped out, it was exhilerating, and I knew I had to be sure, so we flagged down the next vehicle that passed by,(Something that a guy would normally choose NOT to do in the middle of nowhere with his girlfriend, not knowing who, or how many people are in the oncoming vehicle) we were out in the main logging roads of Taylor River, a logging area near North Bend Wa.

We asked the to look at what we were looking at and tell us what they thought.

WE watched for almost 41/2 hours,during that time, our new companions spotted the first of the additional objects after a jet passed in the sky within the first 20 minutes after we flagged them over.

The original object did its "freeze in the sky trick" when a jet passed by, and one of the other new witnesses followed the jet instead of staying on our object. Suddenly he exclaimed "Look theres another one!" The amazing thing was that it did every move and squiggle in the sky, at EXACTLY the same time and speed as the original, we all saw it.

By the end of the evening we saw over 16 of these objects doing EXACTLY the same thing at the same time.

These objects were spaced evenly, in a perfectly strait line all across the sky, in a north to west arc.

At one point in the evening, about 2:30am, the "second" object (the one our friends spotted first) dropped a red dot, that shot off into the sky, and then a white, dimmer dot dropped out of it and went strait downward, then went east much slower than the red one, I jokingly said "Someone's getting abducted tonight" and we all kinda laughed, then we got real serious and I asked one of my companions "did you just see that?" and he said yes, and proceeded to decribed exactly the same thing I saw as well.

I swear on my childs life this is a true report of actual events.

WE called the news stations from my cellphone, the first laughed at me.

The second, said it was meteors because of the shower. I explained to them that I was an amatuer astronomer, I spent alot of time looking at the sky, I know what a meteor looks like, I know what a satellite looks like(these objects were too bright, and did amazing arial moves, not to mention they were too low in the sky to be satellites, I've seen them hundreds of times, these were not satellites) I know what a helicopter jet etc. all look like as well, for I have spent years living next to airport and military bases.

She hung up on me.

The third said I was picking the wrong night for wasting their time.

WE continued to watch the objects until we simply had to leave for it was getting too cold, and it was getting towards sunrise in a couple hoursl

I was at work the next day and one of my co-workers admitted he saw something too, while he was out waiting for the meteor shower to start but he was quiet about it.
