Full Description & Details

It was approximately 8:00-9:00 at night. I was in my dormitory on West Grace Street. I looked out my window, and noticed there were two yellow orbs, one over a building with many antennas, and another, from my perspecitve, over Grace Street. I observed them for some length of time, and the more I examined them, the more their appearance convinced me that they were not stars or planets, as they were just too large. The thought that they could be helicopters did come to mind, but considering their brightness, if they were helicopters, they would have both had to have their spotlights turned directly in my direction. I noticed that the one above the building with the array of antennas was moving at a rate of perhaps 1/8th of the building's width per second, in the rightward direction. I then noticed two more lights, though now I cannot recall their position. The objects did not appear to be hovering over the Downtown area itself, but at some distance further, perhaps over the Bottom (a more southern area of the city.) I went to my next-door neighbor's room and asked her if she had noticed the lights. She had not, but when I pointed them out to her she remarked that they were strange. We both tried to figure out what they were. The light over the building with the antennas then started slowly traveling in our direction, a vector different than previously. I estimate that it passed over Broad and Belvedier in the space of thirty seconds. It could not have been an airplane approaching from a great distance, as it's brightness did not increase while it was staying in one spot, and it was slowly moving to the right when it was hovering, as opposed to northward when it started traveling. The other light that was over Grace street moved off to the left and disappeared behind some buildings. The other two lights were gone. After some time, I watched the area for another few minutes, and there appeared from behind the eastern buildings of downtown an object with two cigar-shaped yellow lights. It travelled to the right and passed through the break in the skyline over Grace street, and at low altitidue (perhaps the top of the buildings over which it was.) I was very startled. I estimate that this object was much closer, behaps immediately behind the buildings. It could not have been a helicopter. It could have been two luminescent blimps flying in ridiculously close formation. It passed through the break in the skyline in the space of one and a half seconds. For the next hour or so, I noticed two helicopters, (for they were distinctly helicopters, with small, pure white lights and red lights to the rear) coming in for landings over the eastern section of the city, then circling around over the northern part and coming back in for another landing. At one point a helicopter passed close enough for me to see the markings on it.

Other Comments

I have been, and remain, very skeptical on the subject of UFO's, and I think this is a healthy view. One should form beliefs on the basis of evidence, not what one wishes to be true. It is important to acknowledge the fact that most sightings have turned out to be planets, aircraft, atmospheric phenomena, and the like. I make no claim that what I saw was of extraterrestrial origin. The objects were UFO's simply by virtue of the fact that they flew, and I could not identify them.

Full Description & Details

While driving west on coutny route 49 in upstate NY. My daughter then 5 spotted a very bright light to our west very high in the sky. She drew my attention to it, and I thought (because the sun had just set) that it was sun light reflecting off an aircraft. The light was on for approxamatly 20 seconds then vanished. After arriving at our destination the high school to pick my son up from practice, I parked the car to take advantage of the light that now had gone off and on several times at this point. As we sat in the car I marked the spot with a bug smear on the windshield of the car and sat very still. Every time a west flying aircraft got in the vicinity of the object the light would go back on for about 20 seconds then dissapear. These aircraft were easily at 35,000 feet and out bound from Boston to points west. As I was an air traffic controller in the Navy and currently work for an airline I feel confident in this assesment.The object never moved it was in a perfect hover and appeared to be much higher than the airliners. There were other parents picking up thier children at this time and several noticed the light on thier own, all were pointing up at the light every time it appeared. this went on for at least 20 min's the only other explaination I can think of is a geosyncrinous satilite slowly turning and reflecitng back the sun at intervals to match the spacing of the west bound aircraft. Not very likley but possible.

2 friends and I were walking up a hill in the country. It was a fairly clear night and it was about 10pm. We were walking up the street and we all looked up at the sky to the west. We saw a bright white object moving to the south. The light looked as though it was moving closer to us. Then suddenly it was gone.

At my elementary school, I was walking with a friend to school

in the early morning and looked up across the parking lot

and saw the silver disk with different colored lights like

red, orange, white, green around the outside of the disk.

It was over an oak tree in a horse field. After a few minutes,

it was just gone. It was like an electric shock upon seeing it

and my friend and I were staring, silent, rooted to the ground.

Full Description & Details

During the summer of 1960 my mother and I were outside just before dust. Flying over the tree tops on our farm in the country came a large flying saucer. It was approximately 18 meters long and 5 meters high. Red, blue and green colors covered the craft in 3 meter vertical strips. There was no sound of a motor as the UFO traveled towards us just above tree top level at a very slow speed of approximately 2 knotts. It didn't stop as it past within approximately 7 meters of our house and vanished behind more birtch trees.

Before and during the 1960's, Canada was building and testing UFO's. Could this object have been a Canadian UFO? Personally, I don't think a man made craft would have stips of colored lights around it. Or fly without the sound of a motor. What do you think?

Other Comments

In 1978, while walking through an open grass covered area along the mighty Fraser River in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, a flashy object caught my eye. Something was shining like a reflective mirror on the ground. I walked up to the object and looked down at it. I had never seen anything like it before. It was about one American foot long and round as a standard coffee cup with two round ends. It's shape was like an air filled oblong balloon. This object was made from some sort of mirror like metal. It was like looking at liquid murcury. I looked around and realized that I was in the middle of nowhere. How did this object get here, I asked myself? Don't worry I don't usually talk to myself. Then I recall bending down and picking the object up. I estimated it's weight to be about 5 American pounds. Then I must have blacked out. I don't recall walking away or knowing whatever happened to the object. I came to my senses about an American mile away from the area. I recall being very shook up.

Man made or othrwise, UFO's do exist. I think we now have enough evidence to make our case on the matter. Is there life beyond our own planet is another question? I don't think we have proven that yet. What we believe and what we can prove are two different things. For example, I do believe that there is life in some form out there in the cosmos among the trillions of stars. But then again people believed that the world was flat at one time. So your guess on the matter is as good as mine. Although I do recall picking up a beauiful doll from Venus in a local bar and then waking up in the morning to find out she's from Mars. Ha! Ha!

Full Description & Details

Driving back to college about 8 pm , Jan 4, 1964. Saw a red light over the trees about 1/2 mile to my left. At first thought it was a small airplane but it was flying about 55 miles per hour and was just over the trees and saw no other color of lights so I began to wonder.

It sped up and soon approched a large tv tower about 3/4 mile off of the main road. It went right up to the tower at about 1/3 the full height of the tower and started to orbit the tower. I knew the tower was supported by guy wires that extended out at least 25 yards from the tower so I wondered why the object if it was an airplane or helicopter was not hitting at least the guy wires if not the tower. We stopped the car by the side of the road parallel to the tower and watched the red spherical light moving around the center of the tower. I felt the hair raise on the back of my neck and decided we should leave. Approching a large clump of trees on my left, I looked and saw the light still at the tower, then a large sphere of red light lite up in the trees and proceeded to follow us down the road for about a mile. It was about 10 feet in diamter. They broke off and left.

Other Comments

Had possible UFO related events while in the military. At my business heard many reports from customers over 25 year period. Anecdotal reports are not absolute proof of the alien hypothesis but the existence of a large number of reports by educated professionals indicates that something real is being seen. If the alien hypothesis is correct then lack of overt contact indicates a long term education process-centuries?

Full Description & Details

I've passed this off as being a bad dream, but after talking with a few of my buddies, I think that we may have more information available to the general populace that the government may be dismissing.

It was during the Cuban/Haitian mass exodus of 93-94, I was stationed on the naval base in Guantanamo Bay Cuba. My platoon was finishing a formation, it was hot, and there was no real word to pass, so we were all pretty fidgety.

We were standing at the rear portion of the barracks, and on the other side of the two story building was the airstrip. It wasn't uncommon to see planes taking off and landing, but this one day, we all saw it... Floating almost artificially, like a Macy's day parade float was a craft that looked like a white 747 with everything in the right place EXCEPT for an oversized tail and no wings. None of us moved or spoke. The craft flew across our line of sight, close enough to make out passengers or something in the windows that ran along the side of the ship. The craft made no noise and followed the correct flight pattern for aircraft leaving the base.

After the formation, we all pretty much forgot about the whole thing...

It wasn't even discussed until later in the week when a bunch of officers from stateside came in asking about strange occurrences. That is the only ufo related occurrence I can honestly say I've witnessed, and I wouldn't admit it without a hundred or so marines and navy personnel to back me up.
