- HBCC UFO Research Note: I have made arrangements to speak
to the gentleman over the entire experience.
- Hi Brian,
- I've had a series of incidents going back to August 1991
involving white spheres and missing time.
- In August 1991, I was driving home from work with a co-worker.
She was an RN who worked on my floor at a VA hospital. (In the states,
it is a veterans hospital.) Well, I was driving and she was a passenger
in my car. She happened to look out her window on the passenger side of
my car. She told me that the moon was particularly bright. I could see
the real moon out the left corner of my windshield. When I looked out her
window to see what she was seeing, I was shocked.
- It was a perfectly round sphere that seemed to be lighted
from within. There was no external lighting visible. It looked like I perfectly
round balloon with an extremely bright light inside it. I decided to stop,
as this thing had been pacing my car for several miles (km's). As soon
as I stopped, it had gone across the road behind my car. I could see it
in the rear-view mirror. It hovered over an empty field to the left of
my car. It hovered about 75 feet off the ground and about 50 feet away
from where I stood.
- I decided to move toward it, as I was quite interested
(yet scared) to see what this thing really was. As I moved toward it, it
slowly moved away from me. I decided to walk down into the ditch from the
roadside and it slowly moved even farther from me. I watched this thing
as it hovered, silently. After a few minutes, I decided to walk backward
toward the roadside again, slowly. It moved toward me. My passenger was
watching me and the sphere the entire time and she was screaming at me
to get into the car. Neither of us had really noticed that the car had
stopped running and the headlights and taillights had stopped functioning
- Well, I had decided to move toward the sphere again and
it moved slowly away from me once more. I decided that this was no weather
balloon nor was it any device or aircraft that seemed to be from this earth.
So, I got into my car and fully realized that the car was dead and so was
the radio that had been playing rather loudly before I got out.
- I tried to start the car and nothing. It was as if someone
had taken out the battery and the engine. The next thing I remembered was
that I was trying to start the car for a second time and it did start.
Strangely, the radio-clock on the dashboard only showed that about 7 minutes
had elapsed since getting out of the car. Considering the car was completely
dead, the clock should've read the wrong time. It didn't.
- As soon as everything started up, I drove off....exceeding
every speed limit until I got my co-worker home. The sphere continued to
follow my car for several miles until we hit the city limits where I was
to drop off my co-worker. It seemed rather unusual, but the roads seemed
unusually dead for being only 12:30AM. At least we should've passed 5 or
6 other vehicles during the remaining 8 miles home.
- Well, I dropped her off after an unusually quiet drive
to her house. Both of us seemed nervous; on edge, if you will.
- I finally drove to my house and the clock in my car was
reading 12:50AM. I went into my apartment and got myself settled down to
watch TV as usual. But none of my usual programs were airing. Each station
was airing later programs. I went out to the kitchen to get a drink of
water and to splash my face. I just knew something wasn't quite right.
Looked at the clock on my stove and it was reading 2 hours later than my
watch. I went back outside and looked at the radio-clock and it read the
same time as my watch. I went back into the apartment and looked at the
stove-clock and realized that my watch and car-radio clock were 2 hours
behind. I even went to my bedroom to look at my digital alarm clock. It
read 2 hours later. I freaked out and called my co-worker, knowing that
she would still be up. I asked her to look at the nearest clock in her
home, she freaked, too.
- To this day, I still don't know what happened to those
- Since then, I've had more sightings of these spheres.
Each time, I had missing time and/or I found myself in locations of my
living quarters that I knew I never fell asleep in. I even moved from NY
state to Florida for 3 years. Had 3 more sightings down there before moving
back to NY state again last year. The latest sighting was 2 months ago
(January '06). I was driving home late at night from a friend's house and
I saw it again. Once more, I was missing 1.5 hours of time. Each time I
see these things, my throat is sore in the morning and I'm psychologically
on edge. One time, in Florida, I even had perfectly symmetrical triangular
bruises on the inside of each forearm (wish I had photographed them). The
bruises disappeared without a trace only 3 days later.
- I've written to other sites before, but this is my first
report to you. Has anyone else had similar encounters and missing time
with the white spheres? Any advice or even just me hearing that someone
else has had similar problems with white spheres would make me feel a little
better and little less alone with this problem. Additional Information:
- As for your question of any marks from the first experience,
I have to say no. There were no marks. However, I had a sore throat and
a massive headache not to mention a feeling of edginess. My co-worker (the
RN) had called off from work the very next day. She made only 1 reference
to our sighting, shortly after the night it happened and told me, "I
really think you and I should keep our mouths shut about this." No
further explanation as to why she would say such a thing. Also, I wasn't
given the chance to ask her why she called off from work the very next
day after our sighting. She had since refused to talk to me about this
and I have lost contact with her for roughly 11 years now. That night,
many people, including 2 of my brothers who lived in 2 different counties
other than the county of my sighting, saw this white sphere. It was spotted
in Tompkins County, city of Ithaca, about 65 miles southeast (approx 103
km) from the location of my sighting just about an hour prior to my sighting.
This was confirmed by my youngest brother who had just started another
college term there (and it was also witnessed by dozens of college students
- It was also noticed by another brother who had been living
in Monroe County approx 25 miles west-northwest from my location about
2 hours prior to my sighting. My sighting took place in Ontario County,
town of Hopewell, County Road #4, in the northern-central Finger Lakes
region of NY. Many of my co-workers also saw this thing upon leaving work
from our shift, yet there were no reports made in the local papers or by
the local radio stations.
- The bruises on my arms occurred while living in Florida.
My dog (Pit-Bull/Black Lab mix) was barking wildly like a rabid animal.
I decided to let him outside and upon opening the back door of my apartment,
I saw another white sphere. Approximate time was around 11:30PM. It hovered
about 10 feet from the ground and only 20 feet from the house. It appeared
to be 4 times the size of a basketball. This was my 3rd sighting while
living there. It was September 2004.
- I woke up in my car the next morning, not knowing how
or why I got in it or how long I'd slept inside it. Upon entering my house,
my dog was extremely skittish. And I don't ever remembering taking him
back inside. He wouldn't come near me. I went into the bathroom to take
a look at myself in the mirror and that's when I looked down at my inner
forearms and saw the perfectly symmetrical triangular bruises. They didn't
fade or turn the usual reddish-blue or yellow-green colors. By the third
day they were totally gone. Not a trace of either bruise to be seen.
- By my 3rd Florida sighting (only lived there for about
3 years in southern Sarasota County, city of Englewood, southwest Gulf
Coast), that made a grand total of 4 sightings and missing time. But it
was the first time I had visible signs and also the first time I had awakened
in a strange location other than my own bed.
- My 5th sighting was during the wee hours, about 2:30AM,
while driving home from a friend's house and the date was Sunday January
15th, 2006. The drive home should've only taken me 10 minutes. I arrived
home at 4:14AM. Again, like always, I woke up with a massive headache and
a sore throat. But this time something else was different, my groin hurt
and my private parts were slightly enlarged and reddened, but definitely
not burned. There was no burning pain associated with the redness, just
a dull pain deep in the groin. (This time I was glad not to have taken
a picture.)The enlargement and redness were gone within 24 hours. I am
also beginning to realize that this white sphere is the same one I've been
seeing all along. I feel as though it knows me and that I know it. Unfortunately,
I have had no dreams or flashbacks of what happened DURING those encounters.
(Maybe it's best I don't remember.) Except....the first encounter. I had
only 1 dream of it. I dreamt that we were inside the car trying to get
it started. I recalled in the dream that the car was totally engulfed in
a whitish-blue light and I could see 2 figures standing at the side of
the road where I once stood to watch this thing. After that, there's nothing
more I can recall. No further dreams and no wakeful recollections.
- *Please note*: All of my sightings and experiences were
outside the typical bedroom scene and during hours that I was still fully
- I also used to have experiences as a small child of feeling
the presence of other people in my room late at night. I was about 6 years
old when that started. And I had started to get very frequent nosebleeds
that worried my parents enough to seek medical attention for me. I hid
under my blanket so I wouldn't see them and thought they wouldn't see me.
Yet, I knew they were there. Once they were gone I would yell for my parents
and they came to my room only twice to see what was matter. But those experiences
went on quite regularly and with amazing frequency. At least twice a month
until I was 9 years old.
- I am completely and totally serious about my experiences.
I am not a crank nor am I prone to hallucinations. I am a healthcare worker
and I work with developmentally disabled/mentally retarded persons. I originally
started in the healthcare field while working at a federal veteran's hospital
during the years 1987-2002. Worked in healthcare while in Florida from
2002 until my return to NY in January of 2005. Since then I've been working
for a NY statewide agency for Mentally Retarded/Developmentally Disabled
