I came to this website because I wanted to share a UFO sighting I experienced along with my brother and a friend. I wish I had pictures or some hard
evidence to share but I don't. I can only share what we collectively remember about that night. Some details are a little fuzzy, it was a long time
ago, but we all remember it pretty much the same. Here is our story.
This was about 21 years ago. I'm not 100% sure of the exact date, but I believe I was a junior in high school and so that puts it at about 21 years
ago. It was a warm summer night and we were out riding our bicycles. It was pretty late, about midnight and we were just doing a late night bike ride
on a large hill behind our house in Pueblo Co. We did this a lot, riding our bikes at night, and sometimes we would go fairly long distances and ride
to the lake. This night, however, we were right behind our house.
We were just riding on a trail where we stopped our bikes to sit. Our friend pointed up at the sky and said "What is that?". We all looked up. There
was a very bright, bluish light, it appeared low in the sky and it seemed like it was shining and directing its light right on us! Immediately the
hairs on my neck stood up. I felt scared and felt like I wanted to run. I don't know what this light was, but my first thought was that it was a
police helicopter or something. Heck, I didn't know, was I trespassing on this hill or something? Are police shining their lights on us? But it was
completely silent. It made no sound at all, zero. A chopper that low would've made a sound right? Whatever it was just seemed to hover there and it
didn't move. I also thought for a moment if it could've been a supernova. It was just so bright! It couldn't have been a regular star because it
was much brighter than all the stars around us and I've never seen a star that color or that bright. I didn't see any other shape around it or
anything, it was too dark, just a very bright light. I can't say for certain if this light was directing its light to shine on us, but it was so
bright that it felt like and seemed like it was shining it's light directly on us. I know this is crazy, but another thought I had in the moment was
that it was God. I don't know why I thought that, I'm actually not religious at all. The light shone for about 2 minutes. I remember staring at this
thing in the sky and thinking to myself, 'do not blink'. I didn't want to miss anything that would happen. Well, the light seemed to just fade
away. Like slowly shut off. It was just gone suddenly. My brother said, and I remember him saying, "look it went that way!". I just didn't see it,
I thought it faded away, but my brother saw it taking off very fast. To his credit, he has always been the better one with reflexes. I wish I
would've saw it take off but I thought it just faded away. He says it took off to the edge of the sky very fast and right into some clouds.
Now the next thing that happened is so creepy... I said lets go home and get out of here. My brother made some comment that our bikes are freezing
cold. I didn't understand what he was getting at until we got home. I looked at the clock and it was about 5am! My brother said, "I told you we were
there for a long time!". I didn't understand what he meant until we got home. Did we really lose time or something? I don't remember anything! I
swear we were only there for what seemed like a few minutes past midnight and just went right home, but it was almost five hours later!
I went to bed and remember I couldn't wait to read the newspaper the next morning. I was certain that I would read a story about this and that we
weren't the only ones to see the UFO in the sky, but nothing... I waited the next day, and nothing again. There was no story in there about any
sighting or anything flying overhead. I decided to call the police station and make a report about three days later. They said there were no other
Were we probed? I hope not! None of us had any markings on us, nothing to show that anything happened other than that we were just riding our bikes.
The interesting thing is my brother seems to remember a little bit more than I do and I remember him just talking on our way down the hill and not
really making any sense to me, like especially the part about our bikes being freezing cold. He said too that the clouds made a vortex where the UFO
shot off too, and I remember him pointing at something but I just didn't see it. It was just a lot to take in at that moment.
Well, one thing I also wanted to share is that this story isn't easy to tell people. I'm an engineer by degree and have a great job and at the top
of my profession in my state, but sharing this story makes me feel like a kook... so I don't talk about this to hardly anyone. I've only told this
story to few close friends and our wives and every time my brother and our friend get together, we recollect our experiences. Ever since then, when I
go out side at night especially camping, I try to gaze at the stars as long as I can because I want to see another one. I'm convinced if I stare at
the stars long enough, I'll see another UFO. Unfortunately, I've not been able to see anything else like it since.
