It was the first cold blustery night of year – November 16, 1999 – I was returning something to K-Mart about 7:20 P.M. I usually take my time leaving the house, making certain I have everything I need because I live quite far out in the country. In hindsight, on that particular night, I left the house very quickly – almost bolting out of the house; and I have no idea why I did that because I was only returning a pair of underwear to the store. If I had left 20 seconds later, I would have missed what I was about to see. I was in my pickup truck, pulled out of the driveway heading west. In the wetern horizon I saw a very bright yellow light; then two and three appeared, and so on until there were eight. My first quick thought was that they were landing lights from an airplane until I started seeing more and realized how big these lights were. I immediately pulled off to the side of the road, turned off my radio, and stuck my head out the window. There were large orbs about the color of the moon. At first count there were seven; but after recounting I’m positive there were eight orbs. As fast as I counted them, the eight orbs traveled across the sky in 20-30 seconds until they disappeared into the southern horizon. The eight orbs took up almost 1/2 of the entire sky as they traveled. They were in-line and did not change their positions but weren’t spaced evenly apart. There were 2 – a gap, then 3 – a gap, then 2, another gap, then 1. The last orb was a little higher than all the others. It did not appear to be a solid craft. As they passed over the field, they were approximately 300 yards away and 300-500 ft in altitude.
My first solid impression was that this was a controlled flight and not anything man-made. There was no propulsion sound or sonic boom which I thought there would be for something traveling that fast. Immediately after they disappeared from sight I turned my truck around and followed where I thought they may have crashed; expecting to see a police road block or flames. After seeing nothing for a few miles, I decided to go to my friends’ house to tell them what had just happened. When I arrived Jim and Laura were reading. They knew something was wrong as soon as they saw me. I told them what happened and talked Jim into coming with me to imvestigate where these orbs may have gone. We went back to my house where I had first seen them in the sky – then drove east about 5 miles and didn’t see any sign of a crash. I took Jim back to his house and talked for awhile; then proceeded to K-Mart. I felt as though the cashier must have known something was wrong because I must have been very wide-eyed after seeing such an unusual thing. When I returned home I called Channel 4 News to ask if anyone else had reported anything strange in the sky. The answer was no. I went on-line and reported it on the UFO Alert Website. While searching that website I found an Astronomy student at the University of Toronto. I contacted him through his e-mail and he told me he had seen 7 orbs at the same time and place in the sky – he described them just as I had seen them. We wrote back and forth a few times but then lost touch. I no longer know how to contact him. The next night I went bowling with my friend Ken. When I told him this story his jaw dropped because Ken told me that earlier that day one of his employees sat him down and told him the exact same story I just told him. This employee lived in Akron, N.Y. The only difference was that this man only saw 3-4 orbs. Ken gave me his employee’s phone number and we talked on the phone a few times. I no longer have his correct phone number but will contact Ken and ask him to try and get in touch with this man to see if he would be willing to talk to MUFON Field Investigators about his sighting. This was all I thought about for weeks afterwards; and since that time I have read numerous books on UFO’s and related topics. Before this incident, I took no particular interest in the subject. I keep an extensive dream journal; and have had lucid dreams in the past. On March 22, 1997, I had two out-of-body experiences. I don’t know where I went but it was extraordinary and amazing. I haven’t been able to repeat them since that time.
I was heading North on I57 at the Chebanse 302 exit ramp. There was two of us that seen it at the same time. We parked the car and got out to stare at it. It was climbing higher moving straight up… maybe curving a little tiny bit East. We ruled out an jet due to the odd looking shape. Also, I have never seen a smoke tail look like that. The smoke trail was rather short but, fanned out .. was quite amazing. At first we thought we were looking at the asteroid. After watching it and realizing it was moving UP..and its maneuvers led me to the conclusion it was indeed a UFO.
I just saw this a half hour ago, I was at Longs Pond just outside city limits of Fort Collins. I was on the shore looking out across the water when I noticed a bright light low in the sky coming from the west end of the pond. I observed this light for no more than 3 or 4 min move in dead silence west to east, first it was moving in a straight line, but a little over half way across the pond it seemed to move up and down in a very odd manner as it continued to move east. It was at this point I knew that this wasn’t any aircraft I have ever seen. The way it started moving up and down it seemed as though what ever was in control of this craft was not operating the way it should. I continued watching the craft until it disappeared behind the trees of the east shore on its way toward the Budweiser plant.
we were testing some new camera equipment and looking up in the sky and noticed the spheres traveling in a southwest direction directly overhead coming generally from the northeast to the southwest. In all we seen at least 6 and did film 4. Of all that we saw in the 20 minutes or so period only one traveled in a northernly direction. They all traveled consistantly and maintained regular flight path. None left contrails or had any flashing lights or strobes. Typical jet airliners were also observed and clearly displayed flashing lights and strobes and contrails on the higher altitude jets.
I have filed other reports recently and was not going to file another but decided to do so, just for that fact that there is something going on up there and it needs to be documented. I can nearly walk outside any night that the skies are clear and see craft with no flashing lights or strobes.
My location is about 70 -100 miles outside of Chicago in a rural setting.
You can see in the video that 1 or 2 of the craft seen to flare up extra bright and then go dim. I dont believe these are satelites just becase four passed over in the same flight paths in a matter of minutes. Also satelite flare outs (Bright to dim) happens when the solar panel escape the setting sun. These flare ups went from bright to dim and back and some were dim to bright. Also some of the brighter craft could not be seen with the naked eye.
In addition to the craft I filmed, one craft raced the entire horizon east to west in about 3-5 seconds, it moved so fast that I could not get the camera on it. It let 3 lights pulses out that were very very bright and intense. Its last bright pulse light the sky up briefly light a very bright lignting flash.
I saw two young people looking up as I turned east on Porter st. off of south bound Berwyn St. I looked up and saw a very,very red light with small white lights on the outside. It floated from north to south and then went to the east and up and out of sight. It was not an airplane.I was suprised to actually see a ufo.The object was very bright red.
1.I was standing in my driveway smoking a cigar like i do on most nights. I always injoy looking up at the stars because i have seen multiple strange things in the sky of Bend Oregon since moving here 4 years ago. There was a news story on KOHD news in bend oregon and someone had video taped the first sighting i seen so i knew it just was not me.but in trying to look up the website so i could show you the video, it says the server is down…
2.I was watching a jet liner in the sky and noticed something flying behind it maybe 3 miles or so..
3.I thought maybe it was a satellite.
4.It changed direction slightly heading north as the plane continued northwest.
5.Numb,excited cause that is the 4th time seeing something.
6.I watched it as far as my eyes would allow.
I was trying to get internet connection on my girlfriends cellphone when i noticed it was very difficult to get any connection so i stepped outside to get better signal i moved the cellphone around to see if I could get better connection when I noticed an object in the sky first in the north moving in almost a straight south path above my house below the clouds it didn’t have any recognizable airplane lights or noise it moved as if it was gliding forward without any loss of altitude the color of the object was grayish to white with what looked like a dim white led light on the bottom, its diameter was round with a flat bottom I immediately called my girlfriend to witness the object along with my neighbor whom i called out of his house. We watched the object move steadily n to s when my girlfriend noticed a few more dim orange yellow lights above the clouds following it a row moving at the same speed,direction and path until it was over my house about 600 ft behind my house then the object stopped in the sky and went up into the clouds and disappeared. During the event i felt chills and goosebumps because i was thinking to my self their back again also felling a little scared and anxious. This is not first time there has been an object float across the sky in front of my house. I have seen them move over my house moving in the same direction about two years ago that event was with a red pulsating sphere. Also seeing them off the waters edge of navy pier numerous yellow orange dots falling left to right only after to look up and notice all the stars shift in the sky then back again in place like a big object was moving above us
I was outside at 10:15 looking up in the sky with a geniii night vision scope. I saw at least 6 different craft at very high altitude. The craft were mostly traveling from the south to the north. One craft was traveling east to west in a slightly erratic flight path. I was able to film this craft via night vision and iphone. The video is very good and clearly shows the craft stoping mid flight the dissapearing from site.
The last craft was a glowing orange sphere at a low altitude and could be seen with a naked eye. This craft was moving from the north to the south. I was able to video this craft and it clearly appears as a very slow moving very very bright glowing object. There are no strobe or flashing lights similiar to typical aircraft. The video is also very good quality. I will try to post the when i am on a desk top or lap top computer.
In addition i viewed many aircraft this night and contrails could be clearly seen through night vision. All the craft described above left no trails. It was amazing seeing so many in such a short time. Clearly the skies are getting busier. Just get outside and look up
