Full Description & Details

Myself and 8 other friends were backpacking for the weekend at Loch Leven. During our hike up to a lake I pointed out various cool things to take pictures of (rock formations, twisted trees, reflections on the lakes and such).to my friend with the digital camera. This picture I asked her to take was of the neat looking cloud formation. There wasn't anything in the sky that we noticed when she took it. It was not till we got home and looked at the pics that we saw the strange object in the sky on the cloud pic.

The Loch Leven lakes are up around 6,000 feet. We were not seeing birds and nobody was throwing anything either. The only things known to me to be in the sky that day were the US Forest Service planes whom the rangers the previous night warned us about who were out looking for campfires (since it was a no-campfires permitted time).

It definately does not look like a plane, and we would ahve remembered seeing a plane flying through our picture at the time. The same thing goes for a hot-air balloon. Not to mention how would you explain the dark spot on the left side that looks like an indentation.

The pictures both before and after show no specks on the lens or other oddities. I've never seen anything like it. Any ideas?

Witness Background

I'm just a college student.

Other Comments

I would be very interested in hearing any ideas as to what this might be. Or if there are other pictures of similar objects.

Full Description & Details

My dad and I were outside in out driveway because we had just brought the cars in. Then we look up because we saw lights pass by. We were astonished! We saw 3 circular objects iluminated by yellowish lights. Then the objects were spinning around eachother like crazy, and then in weird patterns. All of a sudden, 1 of the objects flies Northwest, and the 2 other objects remain spinning. Then the 2 remaining objects fly north one after another.

(When I was small, and home with my babysitter, I went outside to get the mail. I noticed something shiny high in the sky, in broad daylight! I stared at it for about 10 seconds, as it was spinning. I blinked, turned away for 1 seconds, turned back, and it was gone!!! I was curious whether it was a UFO. I thought it was a frisbee, but it could not have been.)

Full Description & Details

While on a road trip through Arizona and Utah on Labor Day weekend, 2004, my son and I visited several national parks. We stopped for a very brief visit in Zion National Park near Cedar City, Utah. I took 27 photographs in the park on the morning of September 7. The accompanying image, #22, is the only one with anything unusual. It is the raw, unmodified, image taken by my Minolta Dimage A7 camera.

Unfortunately, I didn't realize that I had imaged a UFO until I was back home that evening.

This is a first for me. I've never seen anything like it before. I've been looking for similar photographs on the web, and for others who may have captured the same object, but so far without success.

Summary:

A strange semi circular shape was sighted around the time of the Halle Bop comet. Both were seen at the same time, meaning that the it could not have been the comet.

Shape of Object(s)

semi curcular (saucer)

Color of Object(s):

black/very dark silver

Full Description & Details

A semi circular shape appeared in the sky for around three days, the exact time that the Halle Bop comet was visible from Scotland. The shape was thought to be the comet however both appeared at the same time which was evidence enough of a sighting. An article appeared in a local newspaper (The Leader) with close up pictures of the object, saying it well may have been a UFO. A large number of people witnessed the shape. Over the three days it slowly began to move in a north westernly direction, so slow that it barely seemed to be moving. By the fourth day the object was gone as well as the comet.

Color of Object(s):

Full Description & Details

I was watching fireworks (Knott's Berry Farm) from a distance. I saw a passenger jet very high, but I could make out it's shape (bright moon). I noticed a very bright orange light in the sky moving oddly. I first assumed, because today is New Years Eve, that the object was a police helicopter and I was just staring into the search light. The problem was that the light was orange and the object looked like it was on fire. The object stopped and hovered. The light became smaller and more localized (in the center of the object). The object moved very quickly acrossed the sky. It stopped and almost (except in color) looked like a star taking position with a group of stars. The night sky was very clear. It started moving away towards space and kept getting smaller until it blinked out.

My friend was startled. I knew that I was seeing something unusual. Others must have seen this.

Full Description & Details

Sighting occurred long ago, date details unknown actually but I was in teens. I was laying on driveway looking at stars and eventually saw what I thought was a satellite going across the dark sky. After a it stopped briefly and then zoomed away at an incredible speed and at an angle of perhaps 70-80 degrees and disappeared from my sight. I saw absolutely no details and had it stayed still I would have thought it a star I suppose, as it was moving I thought it looked like a satellite though it was dimmer then most I’ve seen.

I had another almost exact same type of sighting a couple years later while camping in Kings Canyon Nat’l Park. I was again lying outside and looking up at the stars having already seen the 9pm crossing of the satellite that I see every year there. Sometime later another star like object is crossing the sky and this time it starts to zigzag a couple times before zooming away and disappearing from my view. This and the earlier object looked as if they zoomed further out into space or something because they couldn’t be seen and didn’t leave over the horizon or anything. They just zoomed away and disappeared. They disappeared very quickly but didn’t just wink out, they zoomed away.

Those are my 2 physical eyewitness sightings. I have had other encounters and missing time episodes but they are hard to explain. I just wanted to share the 2 object sightings, as I haven’t heard many sightings of far away objects. I haven’t been fortunate to see a close up one yet.

Full Description & Details

I was born Nov.,21 1976,in WVA, and shortly moved to rural southern VA. My parents had bought a house in a very rural neighboorhood, but with neighboors.. My parents had gotten there divorce finalized in 1983, and at this point in 86 my mother had fallen onto hard times, and we moved back into the family house. My room faced the northern sky, and had an extremely large picture window which took up half the the wall vertically. Given the size of the window my mother had yet to find curtains, and our blinds to fit the window leaving me with an unobstructed veiw of the night sky. I remember laying in bed concentrating on two very bright stars that were extremely close. At that point one shot of in a millasecond, and was unable to be seen. The other moved rapidly in the direction of my house,which had an empty tobacco feild in the back. It was large round, and glowed its'self, not as if it had lights, but as if it emanated the light throught it'self. The errie glow filled my room, and the u.f.o did a vertical u-turn to go back in the direction whence it came. As it turned vertically I could make out what seemed to compartmentalized parts, as if had been manufactured. It then shot of, and within a second was lost to the eye, as the other had been. I remember geting up, as it was approaching, and the leadened feeling of my feet, and rapid heart beat. The eerie glow it had bathed the room, and I in sticks in my mind, because I've seen all sorts of man made lighting, and none had this enveloping glowing effect. I tried as best I could with leaden feet to tell my mother who was bathing downstairs, on the opposite side of the house. She, did not beleive, and attributed it to being afraid of the dark. Ironic considering it was the light not the dark which scared me. I spent a sleepless night with the covers over my head, and the next afternoon after school entered the tobacco feild behind the house. What I found scared me even more... The grass had been dying as it had been november, but there were two 35 ft diameter circles pressed into the earth in two places, and not one stal of the grass in our around the depressions maintained any green color, as some of the grasss,our most still did around the house. I dont remember missing time, but I didn't have a clock, and dont know if anyone in my family including my sister who was the only other person there with us had exp. with aliens. My sister laughs at the subject my mom still thinks it's nonsense, but they didnt see what I saw. My mother atributed the circles to farming equipment, and said I had a n overactive imagination. It is very frustratating when an event so spectacular happens, yet you are the only one who can beleive, because of what you experienced. I've often thought about hypnosis, but have no idea were to start, and our the funds. I often dream of grays, but this is probably because of the non-stop research Ive done since I was a child.

Witness Background

I didnt finish college. I now work for our family bussiness not far from the incident. I was a wild child until about the age of 25, and calmed down to be a good sheep(citazen). The experience has stayed with me, and I would say I almost think of it daily. I research the subject very much, and do my best to seperate the truth from the trash. I am not married,but single, and am 28 now. I also build computers on the side to save people money,and for me to make some.

Other Comments

We screen all calls if someone would like to get in touch with me please leave a message, and state who you are, and if I am there, I will pick if not, I will gladly call you back. I know you must get many jokesters with fake storys, but I swear with my heart of hearts this was an actual event. Not a hallucination, or some subconcious way to deal with my paents divorce. It effected me, but in other less traumatic ways. Self worth, and confidence etc....

Not,crazy et storys...I just want to know the truth. Plain, and simple.. What did I experience?

Full Description & Details

I was working at a large ceiling tile mill. My duties included checking wells, pumps, etc. outside which fed the stock into huge mixing towers. I was checking a leaky valve way back in the far end of the property, when a bright light shone at my feet. Thinking it was someone on the towers with a spotlight, I turned around but saw no one. About a minute later, the light lit my feet again. Never saw a beam, just the light. I turned again, thinking a coworker was trying to get my attention, but again no one there. When I turned back around to the valve, I looked straight up. It had no lights at the time. A perfectly round disc shaped object sillouetted against the sky. I don't know how high or big it was, but it seemed I could almost hit it with a stone. Four lights then lit on bottom, making a slow strobing pattern. Top to bottom, side to side over and over. I was very scared. Petrified. However I was in such awe I couldn't move or react at all. I then saw a small round object the size of a beachball "bouncing" through the sky coming towards me. As it passed under a security light, it shone brightly like chrome. It went up to the bigger craft and disappeared. Seconds later, all four lights lit a dull blue and it began to slowly rise maybe 50 more feet. Before this, it was completely silent and stationary. With a silent flash of light, it was gone. I have no idea if it accelerated away or what. I never told anyone at work. I was very shaken. If anyone else saw it, they never said so. This was over 6 years ago and I've never told anyone except my wife and 2 good friends, but they joke and I'm sure they doubt my sincerity. Oh well, it was a true occurrance, and I'm grateful to get this off my chest. THanks, Chris
