Comments about the image(s): I have already included this link in my report. I did this drawing in Paint on my computer some time ago. I have seen other objects quite different from this one. I made drawings of them as well. I will submit those stories at a later time. You are free to use this drawing, but please do not disclose personal information about me. I waited many years to report these sightings. I always wanted to talk about them, but I do not want people to believe I am a liar, storyteller, or a nutcase. I truly saw what I reported. Anyway here is the link, I keep my drawings on Photobucket.

Full Description & Details

I saw this object many years ago. I reported it on the NUFORC site with a date of March 1980 and the location as Oxford, Ct.. Later, when I thought more carefully about it, I realized I was in Middlebury, Ct. and the year was more likely 1978. I am not sure of the exact date, early March is a guess.

I was driving home from work. I worked 2nd shift at that time in New Milford, Ct.. It was around Midnight, or maybe a little after. I was driving eastbound on Interstate 84 to Waterbury, Ct. where I lived. I had just passed through Southbury (just past a State Highway Patrol Barracks). I came to a large hill I believe is called Bucks Hill. There is an overpass at the peak of this hill and a tall communications tower. It is still there to this day. I was coming down this hill which has a long straightaway for maybe 1 1/2 miles or more. There is an exit for Oxford, Ct., this is why I gave that as the location for my earlier report. But technically I would be in Middlebury, Ct.. Anyway, as I was coming down this hill, I glanced over to my left, across the 4 lane highway. I saw this long cigar shaped object just above the treetops, not more than 150 feet away. Probably even closer than that. It was right beside me flying parallel to me, but slightly faster. It was a very cold, clear night with a full moon. The sky was very bright. I could see this object clearly. It was dark against the sky. I can't say it's color for sure, but I would guess a dark grey. It was about 100 feet long, and 15 feet high. It had rounded ends on the front and back. It looked just like a cigar or a hot dog. It had no undercarriage as a balloon or blimp does. It also had no vertical or horizontal fins or stabilizers of any kind. It had no means of propulsion that I could determine. I rolled down my driver's window to see if I could hear it, but all I could hear was wind passing my car. I kept my window down so I could take a good look at it. As in so many UFO stories, I seemed to be the only car on the highway, and this is one of the busiest highways in my state. But I was able to take a good long look at it. On it's underside, it had 3 equally spaced, large portholes. They looked exactly like the portholes on a ship. I knew they were windows. I could see inside of this object. All I saw was blue light inside. This light also shined out of each porthole and down into the trees. The light came out of each porthole in a cone shape, like an upside-down tornado. I did not see the light illuminate the trees. The lights were steady and did not blink. This object was probably only 20 feet above the trees, so I estimate it's altitude at about 75 feet high. This thing was VERY close to me. It was pretty scary. You get the feeling or impression that it is also looking at you. This object was just gliding above the trees going slightly faster than me. I estimate it was travelling about 80-90 miles per hour. It was gaining on me. As it got ahead of me I saw that it also had a large round porthole on it's rear end. I could see inside this window as well. Inside this porthole all I saw was green light. And green light shined out of this porthole as well in a cone shape behind the vehicle for maybe half it's lenth. All of these lights were a soft light, they were not difficult to look at at all. All lights were steady.

The craft began to gain on me and came to the bottom of the long hill. Here, the highway makes a pretty sharp 90 degree left turn toward the north. The object turned and followed the highway. It was a very strange turn. It is odd to see a long cylindrical object that looks rigid do a smooth turn, but it did. That might have been the most amazing thing about it. It was now travelling north. Then, I came to the bottom of the hill and the turn. I could still see the object, but now mostly it's rear end. I was much lower now and the view not as good. I was approaching the outskirts of Waterbury and lost the object in the lights coming up from the city. My total viewing time was about 2 or 3 minutes.

I was in a little state of shock after seeing this object. I thought about calling the Police, but what good would that do? The object was gone. Then again, I thought they might look for it as it was following I-84. I never called. I have often wondered if others saw it. It would have passed right over Waterbury if it continued to follow the highway. I never read or heard any reports though.

This is not the only object I have ever seen. I have seen 4 or 5 over the years. But this was the very closest. There was no mistaking what I saw. I made a drawing in Paint on my computer of this object some time ago. I drew some other objects I saw as well. I am not an artist. This object was very simple to draw. The colors are not accurate, but it will give you an idea of what it looked like. I have it in a Photo Host. Here is the link.

Full Description & Details

My husband and I were sitting looking at the sky late in the evening near the end of October and my husband said "what is that" and looked at the sky (we were looking southeast) and noticed a very bright single light that rose over the tree line. As soon as I saw it and caught a glimpse of it, it disappeared.

this was pretty cool and would like to be notified if anyone else saw this too. I hadn't heard of anything, but would be interested to hear if anyone saw this or if it was just us.

Thanks, Julie

Full Description & Details

Incident occurred when I was a young child staying at the Pequenos Hermanos Orphanage in Cuernavaca. I was at a party given for foreign benefactors which took place outside. During an intricate choreographed dance where young female orphans danced with glasses of water with a rose in them on their heads this silver shaped object appeared and hovered at high altitude and seemed to be watching the dance as well. The sky was clear and blue with few clouds and the object was clearly visible though at high altitude I was unable to make out any distinguishing characteristics. Only myself and one other female orphan saw the object. When I pointed it out to others they thought it was a weather balloon. This would have satisfied me as well until - at the end of the dance - it sped away at a velocity faster than anything I've ever seen - I am convinced what I saw was not an airplane a balloon or any other kind of conventional aircraft of that time. I was young had good eyes and a completely sober mind when I saw it and will never forget the experience.

I saved these series of photos taken from the popo webcam itself. Note the time and also position of the object. If you make a animated gif of it you can see what direction/path it's taking. I don't know what it is really. Could be an insect/dust/anything really. I just thought these photos were interesting. I am in a GMT+8 timezone, so please refer to the date/time on those photo's itself.

Color of Object(s):

I did not see the object directly. just it's shadow

Full Description & Details

I first saw it outside my apartment balcony door. I thought it was a tree shadow at first but it was too perfect. No branch or leaf shapes. no light filtered through it like it some time does with a tree. The sun was casting the shadow in front of the apartment, so I think the object was right over the complex. As i watched it moved slightly to the left, hovered and then shot straight up and out of my line of sight. I watched for about an hour to see if it would come back but it did not. I have other sightings in different cities, always around my birthday. Why?

Full Description & Details

Hello my name is Paul reason,I live in Liverpool England. I would like someone to give myself and my wife Diane a logical explaination for what we have just experienced early hours sunday 17 th October 2004 about 1 am.We were driving home from friends in Cheshire a rural of England [near Tatton Hall], no lights on the road exept our car lights,when suddenly from the left of our car a vapour appeared, i instantly thought we were entering some kind of mist but the vapour stayed in front of the car travelling equal speed,then suddenly it started to spin. I naturally thought some kind of vortex was forming and told my wife to slow the car down.The spinning continued and i noticed some blue flashes in it, the rest was just white but was not light,The next we knew it went on top of the car and lit the front bonnet up with light reflecting on the whole of windscreen some sort of cabbage shape blueish ether effect,we both started to panic as we entered a village which was lit up quite well.We turned right, back into the dark countryside when it re-appeared next to the car on the !

left hand side , it went up into the air above the car so i opened my window and could see underneath what appeared to be two rings ,one large wraith looking one[with some sort of a blue energy in it] , and inside smaller plasma [but not illumunous]like teardrop shapes chained together spinning and individually wobbling ,we done several right turns over a streach of about 7 miles but it stayed right in front of the car till we reaches the motorway. My wife and i are very shaken by the incident,it eventually ascended upwards into the clouds and i could see it vapourize into a sheet.This is genuine and was a very disturbing experience for us both.We would appreciate it if there was a scientific explanation,i have also reported the incident to NASA and other organisations.look forward to hearing from you.Paul drnw42150@blueyonder.co.uk

Full Description & Details

Driving home from a friend's house in TWO SEPERATE cars, my boyfriend and I both noticed two strange lights in the sky. Something I have NEVER seen before on my daily drive home. Forward to arrival at the house. We both saw the lights in the exact same spot not moving. the first light was incredibly bright, as if there was a search light high in the sky. The second light, equally as bright, on a perfectly straight angle to the first. both lights stationary. A helicopter flew past this object, and circled around, and flew past it again looking like a needle tip in comparison to the lights. It was stationary in the sky until 7:15 am when I viewed the object last.

Heard a strange sound like some kind of aircraft, but seemed to come from every direction. I looked outside and did not see anything or anyone outside the house. I glanced up in the sky just over the tree tops...where I saw 2 VERY bright lights, like those on a commercial plane except the lights were not horizontal they were almost diagonal from each other. One light seemed to be larger and brighter. I watched for several minutes, before showing my roommate. We both watched for a few minutes, this object DID NOT move during the time I watched or when my roommate watched. I continued to watch for another 30 min. For about 45 min or so the object stayed in one place. The lights were to large to be stars and planes can not hover. I took 3 photos of the object.
