Full Description & Details

About 10 years ago me and my cousin both saw what must have been a UFO.

It was about 7pm at night and we were near his home in connecticut, at a school down the street. The sky was clear and the sun was about to set. You could see all the stars, and there were no clouds. We were looking at the sunset and talking, and we noticed something in the sky. It was moving slowly like an airplane, but what made us stare was the trail of golden "sparks" it left in the sky as it flew.

We've seen jets, which leave a trail of smoke, but this was a sparkling golden trail that dissapeared as it went along. So we watched it move slowly for about 5-10 minutes, and then, similar to a shooting star it went UP in sort of an arc shape, FAST. First down slightly, and then very quickly up and out of sight. JUST like a shooting star, but reversed.

We both just looked at each other like "what the hell was that?"

We had trouble believing what we saw, or coming up with an excuse for what it could've been. Nothing moves like that! not a jet, not a balloon, a rocket, nothing.

It had to be some type of spacecraft.

To this day we have not reported of nor spoken of the incident again,

and save for this posting, I want to keep it that way..

( please do not collect or disclose my personal information i do not wish to speak of this again ! )

Other Comments

There must be a good reason why our government won't tell us about all of this, however truthful it all may be. The fact that they hide it so vigorously and obviously, is just as good as telling everyone, in my honest opinion. So they may as well just tell the people instead of coming off as dishonest. It has to make you wonder why they "can't" tell us, and to question who is really in charge of that decision.

If you ask me to talk about this in person I will not make any comments.

(please do not collect or disclose my personal information i do not wish to speak of this again, ever. I didn't see an ET nor was I abducted, and as far as I'm concerned they still do not exist, so please leave me alone and don't come after me asking about UFO's! )

Full Description & Details

On easter weekend 1998 on our way down to the coast we passed through the Van Rhenens Pass and noticed many off the other motorists slowing down just as we came downhill.Some of the onlookers got out of there cars and started filming whatever it was they saw. We where under the impression that they wher looking at snow on the mountains until I saw what at first seemed to look like the reflection of a shiny hubcap in the window. It was overcast and at night. Whatever it was , It moved very fast in different directions as if someone was manipulating its movement and not very high.It seemed to move with our vehicle for a couple of seconds.

Full Description & Details

I was taking a friend home, (who lived in the country, south of St. Johns) from a meeting for parents of gifted and talented children and we were just chatting. I had just told her that of the things I would like to do or see in the world, there were two things. First, I wanted to be able to speak and understand Spanish (my friend is Hispanic) and, second, I wanted to see a UFO. It wasn't two seconds later that my friend told me to look to my left and we saw a gree flurorescent object just about the tree line in the field. We were traveling west on Price Rd. I wanted to slow down, but she didn't want me to. I continued to her home, where we told her husband. I was excited about it and wanted to go back to see if I could see it again, but they did not want me to leave, because of what might happen. I did leave their home at approximately 10:30pm. I might add, my friend and her husband also have seen other UFOs. When I was on my way home, I slowly drove east and saw nothing. When I told others, they were very skeptical. I have not seen any since, to my knowledge. However, when I see strange looking lights in the sky I always wonder if they are UFOs.

I retired from the State of Michigan in 1997

All I can say is that there has to be others in the universe; there has to be smarter beings in the universe than people on earth.

Full Description & Details

I was having a workbreak with 4 workmates at 3am, when I noticed what I first thought was a relatively slow moving meteor coming out of the "Jewel Box" in the region of the Southern Cross in the South-west. The Light stopped, then for a period (timed) of almost 5 minutes proceeded to travel all over the southern sky in a west to east direction, sometimes backtracking over itself. It alternated between what I can only describe as "meandering" at a slow, sometimes weaving, pace, with periods of rapid straight line acceleration and angular changes of direction, varying its altitude as it did so. The Light, after dilly-dallying all over the southern sky finally headed North slowly, to pass directly above us and only just clearing the Bryderwyn Range to the north of us (hills 300 metres high), on clearing the Ranges it went straight up at a tremendous rate and dissappeared in Saggitarius. The light appeared to be triangular and about 50 metres long (when it passed over us). It made no noise whatsoever, and the colour was a hue of red that I have/had never seen before and can only describe as immensly "calming" and bueatiful. The reactions of my workmates were-one was an excited hyperactive observer, whooping and swearing., two who became very "spiritual" and refused to accept the objects presence basically looking at their feet on the ground and saying prayers (these guys are Maori), one (also Maori) who was inquisitive about the object and talked non stop about "spirits", and myself whom experianced a peculiar sense of calm and peace and seemed to become acutely aware of what was going on around me. We then re-entered our Plant to tell the rest of our (unbelieving) workmates and I then rang the local TalkBack radio station (Radio Pacific) and Auckland Air Traffic Control at Auckland International Airport in Mangere to report the sighting. The ATC logged the call and reported that they'd had no returns on their Radar Screens for Northland and no scheduled flights in the region whatsoever at the time.

Other Comments

I am an absolute sceptic about "Alien Visitations". All I do know, is that the Light we saw was an airbourne object, that moved in a very controlled manner, and in a way that was definitely not consistant with any aerodynamic qualities of any aircraft that we the general public are privy to have knowledge of.

Full Description & Details

I went outside to get the trash, as trash collection day was tommorow. Something caught my eye in the sky. It was a lime green light. I followed it across the sky for several seconds - it moved very quickly, faster than a regular plane. Several seconds later, the UFO stopped in mid-air, and stayed like that for somewhere around a second. Immediately following this, it disappeared.

I truly believe that there is life somewhere out there in the infinite universe. I believe in God and that he created us, but i also believed that he created other planets with life on.

I was standing at my back door when i saw a light moving fast through the sky, then suddenly change direction, at first I thought it was a plane but the direction changing was far to sharp for an aircraft. After a few sharp turns, the light suddenly shot off through the sky in a westerly direction.

I was about 15 and was on the way to wait for the bus to go to school. As I was approaching the bus stop I noticed some light above the trees, maybe 100 yards in front of me. Lights were flashing in a slow sequence one at a time, blue, yellow, red, and green. Each light was maybe five feet below and seven feet across from the other.

I continued to watch the lights untill the bus came, but I refrained to tell anyone at the moment.
