The only way I know how to say this, is that it was BIG! Nothing like I have ever seen before, Maybe a football field wide or more.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Sometimes it was way up in the sky, and it would shoot down as close as 200 yrs, I guess.

Description of Area / Surroundings

It was a rural area, my family all lived on airport road, now called sunlight road, and the airport was right over the hill from my home, maybe 2 football fields or more from my house. The dogs would bark like crazy when this all was going on!

Full Description & Details

To start out with I was a around 8- 10 years old when I first seen the UFO[my first]. I lived in Ellijay GA, by the airport, so I was aware of small air craft my whole life seeing we lived in a small town. As a kid I always played outside un till it got dark, I was so scared of the dark, so I would go inside, or my grandma would make me be in by dark. So my point is here, I never wanted to be outside after dark alone. Ok here is when it all started, I use to sit and look at the moon as it came up before the night set in, and then I would go in the house as it got dark, but one night, I did not... It was like I was pulled to stay outside and look into the sky, and what I seen was out of this world!! I don't know why I stayed outside sitting in my driveway looking into the sky, it was like something was making me. I seen this round object with lights around it, it would stay in one spot and then shoot across in a pattern in the sky like a triangle. Now I would have NEVER sat in my driveway alone in the dark EVER, it was like it was communicating with me, and I did not feel not fear. For about 3 weeks this went on. It would seem to call me out to the driveway to sit and watch it for a hour or so, sometimes less. For some reason this made me feel like I was a peace, and they would not hurt me. I wanted to tell my, mom, brother, grandma, but I thought no one would believe me. As nights went on the object[UFO] would get closer to me, it came so close one night that I thought it was going to land, so I went in and told my grandma, and she said stop being silly, and get your butt to bed. I pulled on her arm for some reason[ you did not back talk grandma] and said please look out the window, and when she did, she started screaming saying call 911, call 911.. And for some strange reason I was clam as ever and said no grandma, 911 would not believe what we had seen. She was so scared running around the house locking the doors, and we went back to look at the Object out the window, it was so close, and then after about 10 sec, it vanished up into the sky. I have never seen my grandma so scared, and to this day I do not know why I was never scared of it, but yet felt drawn to it. I have only told this to a few people because I did not want them to think I was a crazy girl. I have also had other things happen, and one day I might share them, But this was my first and it started the rest of them. Believe me or not, but I have no reason to make this up, nor put it online. I am just ready to tell my story and want some answers.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

NOWAY!!!! Like I said I seen airplanes everyday, and this was nothing I have seen.

Witness Background

I am a mother of two boys, and I am also a ex Fire Fighter. Now at this time in my life, I had knee surgery and am taking time off from everything to get better.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I was a kid and just heard of them, but never seen them, nor was I aloud to even watch movies or t.v. shows about them. After I did not know what to think till I got older, and then knew what I had seen.

Other Comments

I just would like to know what I had seen, and talk to someone about other stuff that has happen to me, and stuff to this day I still witness.
