Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The object was quite bright but not so bright that you couldn't look at it. I could see the shape of the object through the glow. It was dome-shaped, like a half-sphere that had been squashed down by about half. It appeared to have an edge to it rather the smooth. The bottom was flat apart from 3 smaller dome shapes making an equilateral triangle shape if lines were drawn between them. At the time I estimated the size to be 30-60 feet diameter but its hard to say and my memory isn't clear enough to re-anaylise and come up with a better estimate. The object make a humming noise that seemed to "throb" or pulsate in pitch about every second. It also seemed to "freeze" me before I was even aware of it presence but the noise and this effect seemed to go hand-in-hand.
Size of Object(s)
If I stretched out my arm it would have taken (my adult) palm to cover it, maybe a little more. I would guess at 30-60ft
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
Maybe 100ft above the ground and about the same away. This is very rough though, sorry.
Description of Area / Surroundings
This a rural area, surrounded by fields. The main town is about a mile away.
Full Description & Details
I think I was about 12. I was sitting in my room (which was a loft room with roof-window) watching TV. It was around 7:30pm and was quite dark out. All of a sudden I start to feel strange, almost like my mind has sunk backwards further inside my head. I try to move but I can't. I can move my eyes a little. I become aware of a pulsing noise, like a electrical rumble.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
I thought it may have been a blimp but realistically I don't think so. It was moving very slowly like a blimp, gliding along.
I am now 27, a graphic and web designer. I also do 3D modelling and animation.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I was into Sci fi a bit before the sighting but not overly interested in UFO's. Afterwards I became insatiable, watching every program, every book on the subject. Trying to find liknesses to what I had seen.
I would love to know if anyone else saw this object, I wish I could somehow get an exact date. I think it was 1990 and must have been winter because it was dark at 7:30pm. I remember the time because I was watching "tomorrows world" or "Body Matters" on TV and it used to be on about that time.
