I had a clear UFO sighting from a first floor window of my parents' house in the mid 1980's.... I suppose as a teenager I did not understand the meaning or importance of what I saw. It didn't fit into the classic ufo imagery either.
Early one afternoon, when I was about sixteen, I was standing at the top of the stairs looking out. There was a clear view of the sky above the roof of the house next door.
To my surprise I saw a number of shiny silver balls moving quickly from east to west. They were completely featureless and it was impossible to tell how large or far away they were. Except that they were well below the clouds.
The only analogy I can make was that they resembled perfectly spherical balloons blowing quickly in the wind. Except that they had no surface detail whatsoever. Their movement was rapid and their altitude did not vary. There were dozens of them. A few seconds later another large batch of them passed by following exactly the same path. It was surreal.
I would say that they moved under their own power and not in a way that would be caused by the wind. My mother also saw them. We quickly forgot about them and I thought no more of it.
It wasn't until I read Timothy Good's book around 1995 "Above Top Secret" when it dawned on me, this phenomena is real. I have since read all his books.

But that which we modern folk would call a contactee experience stretches back into pre-history, when we called it a shamanic initiation.
It's not new.
Wow. I have truly never heard of a sighting involving anything like that. Now I suppose it could have been some sort of balloon or LTA craft design, but I believe you when you say it wasn't. What did it do? Any unusual course changes, or abrupt speed alterations?

last summer i was standing in my back yard and saw a square shaped object in the sky. it had a square shaped hole in the middle of it (resembled a square donut) it was metallic and very reflective (like the shiny side of tin foil) it was broad daylight with a few clouds in the sky and i just felt compelled to watch it. it was moving rather slowly at a high altitude (level with the clouds from my perspective) so i dont think it was a radio controlled airplane or helicopter. i really dont know what it was but i know that i saw it.

I saw one in early June of 1998.
Changed my whole view of the Universe and our place in it.
That is the reason I found this site.
I have been looking for answers for something I can't explain ever since.
