Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
I wondered if my depth perception was off and the object could actually have been something small (12"x24") suspended in the yard. I have not seen anything in the yard since this sighting.
I have some college, am now a retail manager.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I watched television shows about UFOs skeptically, and rolled my eyes when people gave first-hand accounts. I don't know what to think right now, since I really don't know what I saw.
I was driving, and tired, and could very well have seen something perfectly normal and misinterpreted it.
