Full Description & Details

My wife and I had just stepped outside for some fresh air at approximately 10 pm or so when the wind seemed to kick up all at once. We both looked up at the night sky as we began to discuss whether we were supposed to get some bad weather or not that night. We were talking and both facing the same direction (West)when we both saw a brightly lit spherical object sailing from North to South in a straight line. At the same moment we heard a commercail airliner as it traveled toward the Bay County Airport to land coming from our left. The plane was traveling from an Easterly direction toward the airport West of us. They were both at what looked like the same altitude and on a collision course!!! They didn't collide but I'll bet that pilot had to change pants when he landed. The object seemed to glide quickly through the sky and went straight out to sea and out of sight. It appeared to be perfectly spherical and lit from the inside. It had what appeared to be some type of framework as it looked like it was sectioned on the inside. I remember thinking as soon as I saw it that it looked very much like a huge soccer ball. That is what the sections were exactly like! My wife and I both got a very good and clear look at it as I just know the Airline pilot did. He, no doubt,had much more of a closeup.

The next day we read in the newspaper that hundreds of calls came in to police and the Tyndall Air Force Base about the object. The Air Force quickly came up with the unbelievable explaination that a 'weather balloon' had deflated and was seen by hundreds as it flew out over the Gulf. They even had a photo in the newspaper of what type of balloon it was supposed to be. The photo was of a long,teardrop shaped silver balloon. I guess that was good enough for some people but I know what I saw was not a balloon. The object I saw was illuminated from the inside and was not teardrop shaped and it wasn't silver. What I saw was the size of a small house and I was probably no more than 1000 feet from it.

Witness Background

I work for a small newspaper and graduated from high school. I am a level-headed,sober person and lead a quiet life in a small town.

Other Comments

My wife kept the newspaper clipping from all those years ago. Each time we have looked at it, we still agree that we did not see a weather balloon. I could send you a drawing but you could do it yourself just by drawing a plain,ordinary soccer ball with the hexagonal shapes in it and coloring the whole thing yellowish white as if it was illuminated from the inside.

Full Description & Details



I was on the patio and my partner was sitting just inside the house. I looked up and commented to him how brilliant the stars were. I was still gazing up ans saw a movement out the side of my eye. Thinking it was a shooting star I turned to watch it but boy! This was no shooting star.

There were three moving lights going very, very fast straight across the sky. Two were in perfect time, flying close to each other and the third was off to one side and back a bit.

Full Description & Details

I was living in South Africa then. Me, my brother, and his two kids 6 and 15 years old were sitting on the tarrace of our house in the holiday resort when we were spending vacation. The terrace was overlooking Indian Ocean and we were watching amazing atmospheric phenomena, it was very spectacular thunderstorm of enormous proportions. The whole horizon over Indian Ocean in front of us was being iluminated from left to the right by thunder lightings that seemed to jump from one side to the other. We were fascinated by this spectacle and were talking about it with my bro, speculating on how far from us it had been happening. I should add, that we were not sitting in the middle of this storm, we were actually watching it on the horizon and the skies over us were clear and full of stars, and it was so far, that we could not hear any sound of these thunders. The only sound we could hear was coming from the beach, and was made by big brakers. That's why it was so amazing.

And then my brother shouted - hey, look here, what is it? And I saw it in the very same instance - big, silvery, greish machine flying from South to North along the beach. In two, maybe three seconds she was above us. It was as big as Jumbo jet flying one, maybe two hundred meters above your head. We could see it very clearly, it looked like triangular wing, with oval dimmed lights along the edges. I saw something like strange construction features on its body and I knew immediately it was not an airplane. It did not make even slightiest sound, it moved fairly quickly to the North and disapeared behind the hiill. The whole event last for 10 sec at the most, she made very short arc and disappeared as quickly as she came. Judging from the perceived size of the object and the length of the arc she made ,i would say she could fly at the speed of say 200km/hour, like the landing craft. We were talking about this all the time, but this was not the end of the spectacle. After the strange craft disapeared, we kept on looking into the sky, and after 1 -1.5 hours we spotted three lights in a triangle formation high in the sky. They were moving pretty fast, quickier then most satelites do. then all the lights together took a sharp turn, made like half loop, rapidly accelerated, got together, and disappeared. It was like watching SF movies, and space ships going into hyperspace! I know it sounds unbelievable, but it all happened to me on this strange night on the Indian Ocean.

I stil have my diary in which I made a note about this event, and even made a sketch of it. If someone is interested, I can send a scan. I was living in South Africa for almost 14 years, skies are beautifull in this country, clear and stars are bright. As a hobbist I have a great interst in astronomy and related subjects and I watched the stars frequently. During that time I have encountered three sightings of UFO, out of which the one I described above was the most spectacular. I used to be sceptical about EL, but not anymore, I know my truth. And the only thing that may change my believe is, if in next ten years or so, we all find out about kind of new propulsion system which is completely noiseless and was in prototype phase from early nineties. I n other words, I will have to see what I saw then, to be convinced that what I saw, was not what I think it was.

Full Description & Details

I was outside of my house saying good bye to my brother and his family because they came to have dinner with my family for new year, when a 11 year old girl (nephew), said "look mommy those lights look like the ones we saw the other day" every body looked up and we saw the things flying slowly and then stop at a point in which they make a triangle. I went inside and grab my videocamera and started filming those things. After a couple of minutes two of the flying objects started to disappear. The last one stayed tree more minutes and started throwing something that looked like fire like if it were waterfall but instead of water it was something that looked like fire. We my video camera I zoomed the object which seemed like if all of the sudden it divided en turned into two small lights of balls of fire. I got scared and run inside of the house and didn't continue to film. (I regret that now)

Other Comments

I have the video of this things I don't know if the are real UFO's or some sort of government things, but I wil like to Know.

When I said that the little girl said "they look like the ones we saw the other time" is because the same thing happen about a year ago, just before Christmas of 2003. There were 13 witnesess besides myself. But I didn't have a videocamara handy at that time. There were also three lights that did the same thing.

Full Description & Details

I'm sitting at a stop light in a heavily urban, busy city. As I wait for the light to change, I casually look up into a cloud bank, and notice what should be a small plane flying at maybe 9000 or 10000 feet - I'm no pilot. Standard flying altitude for that kind of plane. No real details on the structure of the craft I assume it is just a typical light plane. The plane enters the cloudbank, and a fraction of a second later, re-emerges from where it had just come. Same tragectory, etc. Stops on a dime, at what was, from my perspective, 1/2 inch from where it had entered. Fluid like a clockwork, not jerky. It then re-enters the cloudbank just like it had a fraction of a second ago, and is gone.

Full Description & Details

My wife and I were returning from shopping headed south on route three towards Bremerton around 9 p.m. we spotted 2 objects in the sky above the city at an altitude of less than 1000 ft. they did not apear to be moving but rather hovering in place. The objects emmmited a yellow light. After more than a minute the lower object shot off in an easterly direction and sort of winked out of sight, I dont know of anything that could attain such speed from a static position. It grew slightly brghter before it shot off though. At this point the remaining craft grew bighter and hovered over bremerton traveling west over route 3 as it crossed over the highway we noticed not one light but 5, it had a red light in its center and four yellow lights at 4 corners like a dice we lost sight of it as it traveled over th tree line. I could not make out any flashing lights or aerodynamic shape that denotes any aircraft or helo that Ive ever seen. Please e

-mail me If anyone saw the same.

Witness Background
