- Cachuma Lake, California Dual Triangular
- Date: Summer of 1969
- Time: Mid-day
- Hey HBCC, After reading the "Richmond
Hill, Ontario Two Triangles Side By Side" I felt compelled by the
witness to help.
- Cachuma Lake, California 1969. I, with
two other people, saw a dual triangle "kite" ship too. It was
mid-day in the summer of 1969. I was 13. Our families were camping together
and the three of us rented a boat. In the middle of the lake we all looked
up to see the same thing. It looked like a light grey bow tie. At first
we thought it was a kite because of how slowly it moved but it was too
big and one side moved strangely. I thought one of the triangles might
be a projection. It was weaving in and out of the high clouds slower and
bigger than a plane. We stopped our engine and it made no sound at all.
Our parents remembered how scared we were came back to tell them. Hope
- Thank you to the witness for their report.
- East Of Peterborough, Ontario Former
News Director Has An Incredible Experience
- Date: July or August of 1969
- Time: Approx: 10:00 p.m.
- HBCC UFO Research Note: I thought I would
add a quick note here. The gentleman mentions in his letter to me that
he was a former news director of CFBV/LD radio in Smithers. The radio station
in Smithers is a 45 minute drive from me heading west, and Smithers is
located in British Columbia, Canada. I also do short spots on the radio
station the man is talking about, giving local updates on UFO sightings
for out entire area.
- Message: Hi Brian. Nice to meet you.
First off, I'm a former news director of CFBV/LD radio in Smithers. Additionally,
I worked at Endako mines for a few years in the '70's. As you can imagine,
I'm quite familiar with Houston, having lived and 'played' in Fraser Lake,
Endako, Burns Lake, Telkwa and Smithers for many years in the late 70's
and early 80's. Heck, I met my first wife at an Ian Tamblyn concert in
'81 at the Endako Community hall!! I live in Peterborough County, Ontario.
Ironically, yesterday, I received a post card from an old buddy who's
currently vacationing in Australia, he lives in Quick. Remember the Christmas
flood of the community of Quick back in '83? Here is my story.
- I was born and raised on a 100 acre farm
20 miles east of Peterborough, Ontario. The incident took place in July
or August of 1969 when I was sixteen. I was alone in my family's farmhouse
located 75 feet from a gravel township road. At that time we had a border
collie mutt named Chief who was an extremely good guard dog, vicious would
be an appropriate description. My father passed away the previous February
and Chief had become even more nasty. Lots of people driving on the property
would remain in their vehicle until one of us appeared in the driveway
to rescue them from the snapping dog.
- It was approximately ten o'clock in the
evening and I was sitting in the living room watching TV with the overhead
light on. I noticed a light shining through the closed white drapes covering
the south window. I thought, "That's odd. The light's on, if the light
was off I could easily see the light's of a vehicle passing the farmhouse,
but the light's on??!! And I can't hear a car." I exited the living
room and entered the kitchen. I looked out the aluminum screen door on
the south side of the kitchen and saw a light on the other side of some
poplar trees growing about 150 yards from the house on the other side of
the road. The light was white and about the size of your thumbnail.
- Now this is where it gets interesting.
Chief was standing just outside of the screen door, with his butt against
the aluminum. He was making the most peculiar, extremely low, guttural
growl and every piece of fur on his body was standing straight out, as
though he'd been electrocuted. I'd never heard him make such an odd sound.
He was scared witless. Normally he'd rush across the yard barking and growling
at the human, the squirrel, the skunk etc. Not this night. The light was
moving west to east and the dog's nose followed the light precisely. Whatever
was moving in the sky was definitely the cause for Chief's abject terror.
- I couldn't open the door to investigate
as the dog's rear end was 'bunched' against the door. I yelled at the dog
to get out of the way. He wouldn't move. He was frozen. Finally, after
a few seconds of admonishing the dog, I forced the door open which pushed
Chief out of the way. His nose never wavered from observing the moving
light. I walked across the yard towards the road and the light which was
still slowly moving west/east. It would occasionally disappear behind a
poplar and then reappear a second later. There was no sound. I guesstimated
the object to be 150 to 200 yards away. Chief, the nasty guard dog, never
left the cement patio on the front of the house, but he continued to observe
the thing and kept growling in that most peculiar manner.
- Then I realized something very odd. By
this time I was standing on the road. Not only was the flying object making
no sound, but there were no cricket, tree frog or katydid sounds as well.
Brian, what in heaven's name has the ability to silence the amphibians
and insects of the forest? I felt a very palpable and rising sense of terror.
- I lived in that farmhouse for 18 years.
At no time did any of my family members nor I ever 'get the gun' because
we were frightened of something. It never happened, well, just once. I
ran across the yard, past the dog who was still frozen by the front door
and into the woodshed. I grabbed the single shot 22 rifle and the shells.
I was so frightened, even today, I can recall my right hand shaking as
I fumbled to put a shell in the gun. I can clearly remember thinking, "This
is the stupidest thing I've ever done! What good is this 'pop gun' going
to do for me against that 'thing' out there across the road? I might as
well throw a chunk of gravel against the object."
- The next thing I remember I was seated
on the couch in the living room with the loaded 22 across my lap. The light
was still illuminated and the TV was on. I was calm, cool and collected.
My heart rate was normal. The flying object was now located to the east
of the house, out over the barnyard and for the next ten to fifteen minutes
I kept looking over my shoulder through the south window at the light in
the sky. I could barely make out a ring as though the light was the 'diamond'
on the edge of the ring. A couple of minutes into this session, the light
changed from solid white to a blinking red light. It became smaller and
smaller and blinked faster and faster. From my perspective, it appeared
that the object shot out into space. At no time was I worried or concerned
about the UFO in the barnyard. I had a lackadaisical attitude towards it
and I thought, "Big deal, it's just a UFO, why worry about it?"
as I watched TV and occasionally turned to look at it out the south living
- I want to make something perfectly clear,
Brian: the next part of my story is a dream. This did not happen. For
all of my adult life I can clearly remember the dream. In my dream, I was
standing in the woodshed at my family's old farmhouse, in the night, with
the woodshed overhead bulb on and I'm loading the 22. White light suddenly
comes through the two windows located on the south and west sides of the
woodshed. White light comes from under the woodshed doors from the outside.
That's the end of the dream.
- Here's the next peculiar part of the
story and I have no idea whether it's connected to the UFO incident. I
was not suicidal in the summer of '69, I have not been suicidal at any
time in my adult life, nor am I suicidal today. I do not suffer from depression.
I feel fine, thanks! A few days after seeing the object, I was home alone
and cutting the backyard grass. Suddenly, with no previous suicidal thoughts,
I decided to shut off the mower, go to the woodshed, load the 22 and kill
myself. I exited the woodshed, with the loaded gun, walked through the
house, sat in precisely the same spot on the couch as that night of the
UFO visit, with the loaded 22 across my lap. My intention was to shoot
myself. Fortunately, after about 30 seconds of contemplation I came to
my senses. I thought, "What the heck am I doing? I'm not suicidal!
Get that damn shell out of the gun! Put the gun away! This is ridiculous!"
I unloaded the rifle and returned it to the woodshed.
- Brian, I have some questions....as you
might well imagine.
- 1) What was that thing flying through
the sky, with no sound, in the summer of '69?
- 2) What has the ability to silence the
critters of the forest?
- 3) Why was my vicious guard dog reduced
to a quivering mass of terror?
- 4) We have all been terrified. There
are certain physiological responses to fear. Increased heart rate, adrenalin
pumping through your veins, shaking hands, cold sweats etc. etc. How did
I retreat from all of those normal responses and return to 'calm, cool
and collected' without a calming down period? (by the way, I had no sense
of time loss during or after the incident)
- 5) Is my dream of loading the gun and
seeing white light a dream? Or did it actually happen?
- 6) What was the reason for my suicidal
thoughts and actions which occurred out of nowhere a few days after the
incident? (I repeat: I'm not suicidal, nor was I when I was sixteen.)
- 7) During the absurd suicide event,
why did I walk to the exact same spot as I ended up after I saw the UFO
with the loaded gun across my lap?
- I guess I'll never have the answers to
those questions. By the way, Brian, I cannot be hypnotized. Just to satisfy
my curiosity, I wish I could be hypnotized, to possibly further explore
the events of that night so long ago, but I'm one of those people who are
not open to hypnotic suggestion. Thanks for your time and keep up the good
work documenting the observations of peculiar events of people from around
the world. No, I'm not a hoaxer!! Go ahead, use my name if you wish. I
truly don't care what other people think. The above mentioned events really
did occur. Art
- Thank you to Art for the extremely interesting
report. I will be contacting Art over this experieince, also I would like
to add Art gave me the OK to use his name.
- Bells Corners, Ontario Unusual Lights
Formed A Perfect Square
- Date: Around 1992
- Time: Evening
- Hello Brian,
- I found your website during a google
search of UFO sightings. I have a story I would like you to hear. I am
searching for information regarding this incident or others like it. I
figure there must have been reports, other people must have seen this.
The main problem I have is nailing down a time and date for when it happened.
I know I was about seventeen years old and it was a mild evening, summer
or maybe fall or spring. I had it marked on a calendar a long time ago
and the information is since lost. My parents no longer remember the date
either, but they vividly remember the incident.
- It was a mild evening as we were driving
towards the Bayshore shopping mall from my Ontario home in a place called
Bells Corners. My parents were giving me a ride to the Britannia movie
theatre where I was to meet up with friends. Driving down Richmond road
before reaching the Queensway Freeway - strange lights appeared to the
northwest. At first they appeared to be tower lights, like many of the
radio and communication towers that spread across the countryside of Ontario.
However these lights were very bright and not red as the tower lights usually
are. These lights were new. Not standing in a place we were accustomed
to. Not connected by metal beams reaching skyward. Their luminescence shone
brightly against the fading orange-purple and then deep blue of the sunset.
My father was driving the vehicle and my mother was in the front passenger
side, and I was in the back. My mother and I were captivated by the lights.
We watched as they stood still like new tower lights, wondering what new
structures were installed in the country side. They formed a perfect square.
They then began to move in Geometric patterns. The four lights switched
positions and moved around each other with great speed and precise unison.
We were all stunned by this unusual display. My father had pulled over
to the side of the road so he could observe them. The lights changed and
exchanged positions, one of them had entirely disappeared before our eyes
and instantly reappeared far above the others. One fell downward while
the other three moved upwards at great speed and disappeared out of sight.
They were gone. We were parked at the side of Richmond road south of Silver
- I did make a report of this sighting
within days of the experience. I had contacted the local newspaper, the
Ottawa Citizen. The newspaper said there have been no other reports.
I know others must have seen this, hundreds of people heading westbound
on the Queensway would have had this display in plain view. Also, unusual
aircraft activity was seen in the area days afterwards, witnessed this
time by many people. They appeared to be Military.
- Please, if you have any information on
similar sightings, I have been searching for information regarding this
for a long time.
- Thank you to the witness for the very
- Northwood Middlesex, UK - A Visit From
The Ministry Of Defence and Police
- HBCC UFO Research Note: When reading
this report, and viewing the photos I would really like to request that
if anyone may have witnessed the same object in 2004/2005, I would certainly
like to hear from you with the information/report, etc. This is an unusual
case due to the authorities coming to visit this gentleman and taking his
camera and film. This, as far as I know doesn't happen all that often,
so in my mind the authorities certainly did not want this information/photos
to be in the spotlight, and of course makes me wonder why. Why would the
authorities be concerned enough to keep the witnesses photos, so what is
this object that was filmed ? Also before I get asked, as I usually do,
I won't be giving out this witnesses personal information. In other words
this person will remain completely anonymous ! The witness also shared
something's as well with me which I won't be posting in this report.
- Hello Brian, Sometime ago I wrote to
you (maybe a year or so) with regard to an aerial object seen, witnessed
and photographed by me and a friend from his apartment complex balcony.
- I promised you the pictures after I described
the events to you and what we had witnessed, but before I had chance to
send them, I had a visit from The Ministry Of Defence and Police who removed
my camera and images.
- The afternoon we had seen the object
I telephoned the local Police to see if they had seen it, or if anyone
else had witnessed the object because it was so clearly visible for such
a long period of time, they said they had not, but would pass the information
I gave onto the relevant authorities, within hours my camera had been taken,
only to be returned 11 months later with no pictures.
- I have 2 images of the object that I
have obtained as several copies were made prior to the camera being confiscated.
These are the only pictures as I know now available, would you like them?
They are 1.5meg each and show the object if you zoom in.
- The object was a long black cylindrical
craft that was intelligently controlled and reflected the sun like a mirror.
Myself and my friend estimate the object was around 30-40 foot long and
about 6-9 feet across.
- It was a lovely summers day when we saw
the object and were sitting out on the balcony having a beer and soaking
up some rays when we noticed the object. It flew very slowly right over
head and we could clearly see it for over an hour. The object had a 'dome'
in the middle, at the bottom only really visible when it was at certain
angles, the object could move almost instantly forwards and stand still,
rotate then gently, move again, then stop etc. Very strange looking movements.
- My friends location is north west of
London, midway between RAF Warrior NATO base at Northwood Middlesex and
RAF Stanmore in Middlesex.
- If you would like any additional info
and the pictures I have been able to recover, please reply to me. Best
- Additional Information:
- Hi Brian,
- Thank you for a timely reply,
- I will include the pictures in separate
emails as my ISP has download restrictions. I have two pictures for you,
these are the only remaining pictures, my 'friend' who I retrieved them
from had actually re-formatted his hard drive and sold it on Ebay, he is
still worried about even having had them in his possession. I was given
the pictures on a CD that had been buried in local woods.
- The first picture I will send twice,
one original and one with a ring circling the craft, as it is very small,
the other picture is also original and shows the craft at a different angle,
in the same area of the photograph.
- The pictures were taken on my friends
digital camera, it was an early generation camera and had almost no zoom,
if we had a zoom lens the pictures would have been far better. We were
unable to view the craft through the viewfinder on the camera so it was
'point & click', you will need to zoom into the picture to see the

- Looking From Wellfleet, Massachusetts
A Bright Light Stationary
- Date: January 25, 2006
- Time: 10:15 p.m.
- HBCC UFO Research Note: The name of the
witness in this report has been changed by HBCC UFO Research.
- Attached hereon is correspondence I had
with my art teacher regarding a UFO like light he saw in the western sky
looking from Wellfleet, Massachusetts (Cape Cod) During the week of January
- Mr. Fry claims to have been out walking
his dog on Great Island at about 10:15 PM, when he observed a bright light
standing still in the sky. A row of trees was between him and the light
which kept 'going on and off' behind tree branches as he moved along a
path to get a better view of it. When he got clear of the tree line the
light had gone.
- My immediate impression of Mr. Fry sighting
was that it was an aircraft or perhaps the Coast Guard helicopter or Falcon
either on a mission near Plymouth, Massachusetts or on base leg prior to
turning on final. I used to see phenomenon such as that in Oklahoma City
with airliners approaching Will Rogers Airport from the west. They would
fly straight toward my position for five minutes before making a right
turn onto final about seven miles away. While the aircraft flew towards
me their landing light would appear to be hovering motionless. However
it is about 30 miles across Cape Cod Bay from where Mr. Fry made his sighting.
The only airports I know of would be Otis Air Force Base to Mr. Fry's left
or 45 degrees southwest and Boston's Logan to Mr. Fry's right or 45 degrees
northwest. Both locale's more than 40 miles distant.
- I live about 15 miles south of Mr. Fry's
vantage point. Been a resident of Cape Cod since 1987. Lived in this town
for more than four years and although I've watched a lot of high flying
aircraft going to-and-from Europe I never seen or heard of anything such
as Mr. Fry described over Cape Cod Bay
- So far Mr. Fry is the only person I know
of that seen it.
- Below is a short note from the eyewitness
to the gentleman who related this report you read above.
- Hi, The light that I saw in the sky was
above the western horizon about 20 degrees. I was an avid student of astronomy
and even made my own telescope. I know where Saturn was at that time of
the evening around the 25th of January. Saturn was located on the eastern
portion of the sky approaching the meridian and was a faint yellow color.
I know it well. As I was facing west, Saturn was at my back. The light
that I saw was many times brighter than Saturn. It was like an automobile
light coming at you and about two blocks away. It was an interesting phenomenon
and I have no idea what it could have been.
- Thank you to both fellows for this report.
- Between Bruderheim & Lamont, Alberta
Ball Of White Light Lit Up The Sky
- Date: February 6, 2006
- Time: Approx: 5:45 p.m.
- Hi Brian, Hope all is going well. Thought
I'd drop an email to report what I heard was a strange occurrence 02/06/2006
at about 5:45 AM. My friend (guy who I sent in the last report of the white
UFO that zipped by the Edmonton City Centre airport), his brother told
us that Monday morning on his way to work at about 5:45 AM on highway 15
between Bruderheim and Lamont Alberta he witnessed what he describes as
the weirdest thing he's ever experienced. He said he was driving with a
co-worker who was half asleep and not paying attention when all of a sudden
the whole sky lit up and right in front of him about a kilometer away a
ball of white light descended from the sky and seemed to crash right into
the earth but there was no crash site or impact. Witness said total time
of event last like 3 seconds. He also mentioned that when he got to work
others were also talking about this strange thing that lit up the whole
sky. And as per him most don't think it was a meteorite and neither does

- Scarborough, Ontario Unknown White Object
- Date: February 9, 2006
- Time: 3:15 p.m.
- I have a sighting to report to you, that
happened at work in Scarborough, Thursday, Feb. 9, 2006 at about 3:15pm.
I was looking west towards Toronto. I first must tell you in observation,
that most of that week, we had sunny clear skies, with very little cloud.
Some miles south and north of our position, was very cloudy", and
snow quells were happening. We were the donut of clear skies that week,
which seemed weird and with good heat from the sun. You could even take
off you coat (12:00-3:00pm). The blue sky conditions helped to identify
this round white object moving straight, from the north to south. I would
say the altitude would be about 2,000-3000 feet and maintaining. I watched
it from the "sun's blind spot", with the aid of my hand, as the
"Blocker". I watched it moving at the speed of about 200-300
Mph. I witnessed this for about 10-15 seconds, as it must have covered
about one mile across the sky, while on a straight flight path. As the
object reached further south, I could no longer see it with the naked eye
and as it faded from vision. Sorry, as I could not snap a picture of this
one, as it was only a 10 second window. Other folks have to see these,
if they look up and block the sun. This technique works in my observations
to view" unknowns". Have a nice day.
- Thank you to the witness for the report.
- North Surrey British Columbia A Round
- Date: February 10, 2006
- Time: 10:20 p.m.
- Number of witnesses: 1
- Number of objects: 1
- Shape of objects: Round.
- Full Description of event/sighting: Hi
Brian, was watching Olympic Opening with wife and got bored. Was just casually
looking out the window and observed a round golden object passing overhead
from south to north. Object appeared to be about the same apparent size
as the Space Station. May possibly have been a fireball as it was to slow
to be a meteorite and much to fast to have been a plane. I'm not to sure
about the fireball idea though, as it did not appear to be bright enough.
Object appeared to be more a self glowing luminous object rather than a
burning rock. It was in sight for several seconds as I had time to look
and around and locate my binoculars before it faded out. I lost it just
as I aimed the binoculars, did see one of those multi coloured stars right
were the object faded out but don't think they were connected in any way.
There appears to be a thin layer of clouds north of the mountains so it
may have been covered by them. I think if you had been outside you would
have seen it pass over your place.
- I've seen numerous strange lights for
the past several weeks over by Burke Mountain. and different areas of the
sky but unable to identify the source. Five days ago at approx: 03:05 I
couldn't sleep and was sitting watching all the action taking place outside
from the gale force winds we've been having. I observed two large pale
white oval shaped lights flash across the sky. Objects appeared to be chasing
each other and passed over Burnaby Mountain. heading east at approx:. 5000
ft. Estimated speed approx:. 2000 mph. Objects passed behind a layer of
clouds hanging over the Heritage Mountain area. They looked like search
light beams playing on the clouds with out the beams. Saw something weird
either the day before or day after, I should write things down but am lazy.
Anyway something passed right over the bldg. heading in a northerly direction.
Don't remember the time but believe it was before midnight. I at first
assumed it was the police helicopter because of the lighting even though
I did not hear any noise from it and could not see a fuselage to go with
- Funny thing was the further away it got
the wider apart the lights got as if the thing was expanding like a balloon.
It disappeared in the clouds over Coquitlam. Approx:. a minute later two
small planes flew over following the same flight path as the first object.
Both planes easily seen and heard, both flying very low, I'm guessing well
below 1000 ft. both disappeared in the clouds over Coquitlam. I got the
impression they were in hot pursuit of what ever it was. Seconds later
the police chopper passed over head. Same flight path. I really noticed
the difference in size when the police unit got over to where the first
object vanished. Although the lighting appeared similar. The police chopper
was plainly visible but appeared to be only about 1/10 the size. I don't
know if the police unit had anything to do with the first object or the
two planes as it turned east and went over by the Port Mann bridge where
it did a couple of orbits with its search light on before heading back
this way. Approx: 1000 ft. north of here they suddenly shone their search
light right on me, so I waved to them and they turned it off again.
- Thank you to the witness for their report.
- Quesnel, British Columbia 8 Very Unusual
- Date: February 11, 2006
- Time: 1:40 a.m. to 5:00 a.m.
- Location of Sighting: In the skies in
front of my house.
- Number of witnesses: 2
- Number of objects: 8
- Shape of objects: Looked like stars but
with flashing lights (red, blue, yellow, green).
- Full Description of event/sighting: I
was doing work in one of my spare rooms when I came out into the living
room and glanced out the front window. I have an awesome view of the sky.
I spotted what I thought was a very bright star and upon closer inspection,
I noticed that it had different colored flashing lights. I watched it for
a while and the angles it moved in I knew there was no way it was from
this earth. I even went and stood outside for about 15 minutes. Then when
I started looking around the skies I noticed 7 more. They seemed to have
formed some kind of a scanning grid and they all seemed to have their own
areas. I then grabbed the binoculars and I couldn't see the shape, but
the flashing lights were very clear. Then the first one I saw was the closest
and brightest and for a while it seemed to be coming towards my house,
so I thought they'd seen me, so I turned off all the lights in the house
and closed the curtains and left a two foot wide opening.
- That one went down into the trees by
a house, which is just across the field from my place, there's a ranch
there. I watched them until about 5:00am then decided to lay down on the
couch for a while. When I woke up it was daylight anyway. This really got
me going. I now have a telescope ready, and if they ever come back and
get close enough I'll try and take some pictures this time. I was just
too shocked and surprised to think clearly last night. Blackwater road
is a logging road and there were truckers coming and going. I was sure
there was no way they could miss it. I wasn't sure who I should report
this to. So here I am. I'm hoping they'll come back soon. I'm more ready
for them now.
- Thank you to the witness for their report.
- Roseville, California Five Spheres
- Date: 2/8-2/9-2/10-2/11 ( February 2006)
- Time: Varies
- Number of witnesses: 1
- Number of objects: 5 total.
- Shape of objects: Spheres.
- Full Description of event/sighting: In
an amazing juxtaposition of events, not only have I seen five UFOs over
the past four days, but now 2 photos appeared just today which basically
show 2 of the 3 types of UFOs I have seen. Both were posted today on Rense
( the other 'type' seems to be a star-like sphere which moves slowly but
erratically across the sky).
- I was reclining in the backyard on a
chaise lounge. My cat jumped up on my chest as it usually does when I do
this. I closed my eyes for a bit, then the cat started to get too close
to my face, so I picked it up to put it on the ground.
- That's when I noticed a black sphere-shaped
object simply hanging in the air above me.
- It took me a while to figure out what
I was looking at. I couldn't figure out why the object was simply suspended
in the air. It was about the size of Venus, or a little smaller, maybe
Mars. I knew it wasn't an airplane for sure, as it was simply stuck in
the air. It wasn't moving, except possibly slightly turning to reveal
a red area on a different side of the sphere. This could have been a red
flashing light, I don't know for sure.
- I kept looking at the object to figure
out what it was. I knew it wasn't a helicopter - for one thing, I could
clearly see it was a sphere, and not elongated at all. For another, there
was no noise, and we have helicopters fly over the house almost every day,
so I know what a helicopter looks and sounds like. And I think that a helicopter
couldn't be that high anyway. I mean if it was a helicopter, it would have
to be very, very high to be the size of Venus and anyway, like I said,
there was no movement of any kind, which means no props or blades.
- I thought perhaps it could be a balloon,
but as I said, it was stuck in the air. In other words, it didn't move
at all, except possibly to gently turn over, but as I said, this could
have been a red flashing light. If it was turning over, then it did it
very, very gently--in other words, there was no bobbing, jerking, jiggling,
or erratic movement of any kind. It just hung there.
- Very weird. I finally realized I was
very likely looking at a UFO, and I was excited. I went to get a digital
camera, but either the memory card or whatever it is was full, or the camera
didn't work. I think I got one picture, but when I tried to download it
to my computer, the computer wouldn't take it. Anyway, I couldn't see the
object in the viewfinder, so I just pointed it as best I could and took
the picture. It is exposure 90, but the computer would only go to 89.
I still have it, but I don't know if I was able to point at the object.
- I called my mom out to look, but she
couldn't see it. It was only about the size of Venus or Mars, and the sky
was still fairly bright. That was a bit frustrating. I kept pointing, but
she didn't see it.
- It was there for only about 3 minutes.
I wish I could have taken a picture, but I didn't want to go looking for
another camera and lose the object. I kept looking at it, and then finally
it just -- disappeared, which I know sounds weird, but that's what happened.
Poof. Gone. I guess it could have sped off so fast I didn't see it.
- The next day, I told someone at work
about it, and he got excited and kept asking me about it, and said his
mom told him a similar thing, but I think that was in Phoenix. Anyway,
later that day I saw a white sphere, about the size of an average
- star, and it was gently moving thru the
air. It was kind of erratic. I guess that could have been a balloon, because
it wasn't moving very fast and was just meandering thru the sky, but the
next say something happened which made me think twice.
- On Friday, after work, I went outside
to see if it was there again, and after scanning the sky, decided to lay
back down to duplicate my actions two days before.
- My mom came out to ask if I was looking
for the object, and about a minute later, a very, very fast star-like object
flew right above my head ( I mean it was way, way up there, but you know
what I mean) in the direction I was reclining ( it started
- at my head and moved in the direction
of my feet) and then started 'bouncing' or zig-zagging...those aren't really
the words, because I couldn't see the object actually do those things,
I just saw it in one place and then in another and then another - like
that- then it straightened out and then another object about 2 seconds
behind it did very similar things--I know this sounds crazy but it was
almost as if they were confirming that they were UFOs and nothing else.
I mean this was three days in a row--if the previous day's sighting was
a craft of some kind and not just a balloon.
- Come to think of it I see the slow meandering
kind quite a bit--maybe every month, so those could be balloons I guess.
I have never seen a big balloon like those would be but I have heard about
weather balloons. Are those really big, completely
- round and white?
- But there is no way that those fast-moving
objects were balloons, jets, meteors or rockets or anything 'conventional'.
For one thing, all those things, except for the balloon of course leave
trails of some kind, and these didn't--except for...well it seems like
the air around them was kind of - I don't know, kind of hazy, almost as
though they were on a road in the sky. And it took only about 5 seconds
at the most to go from one point in the sky to the other where I couldn't
- anymore. In other words, clear across
the sky in 5 seconds or maybe less. I just thought of something. Take
your arm and put it on the table. Point your hand to the ceiling. Now,
take about five seconds to lower your hand to the table.
- Remember that speed, go outside and do
the same thing to the sky, and that's how fast the objects were going.
Try to imagine a rocket going that fast. No way. I wonder how fast they
were going. Thousands of MPH, is my guess.
- I just thought of something else. When
they were 'jumping' it was like what a flea does when it jumps. You can
tell it jumped, but you can't see it actually in the air. That's exactly
what it was like.
