Last week, I received a call from my 17 year-old son stating that he and several of his friends had seen a UFO while driving. He was extremely
excitable and I could hear his friends who seemed to be just as overwhelmed. My son is not the overly imaginative kind. Like his father, he leaks
cynicism and has not been shy about his skepticism of some experiences I have had throughout my life. So, hearing him describe what they had seen was
strange but extremely interesting.
They described the object as square or perhaps rectangular. It was larger than a football field and had four lights of different, changing colors. It
was approximately 7 pm and none of the boys, 4 of them, were under the influence of any substance. None had ever witnessed anything abnormal before
and they were very taken aback how silent the object was. It hovered over them for a few seconds, then sped away. They described it as essentially
disappearing instantly. They all got their phones out but said there was no time and, basically, no way to take a photo once they recognized what they
were seeing. They did draw a pic, but it is a square with lights so not a lot of additional details other than it appeared to hover on its side when
they first noticed it.
Now, I have had some crazy experiences, many of which I have shared on ATS. But, I have never seen a UFO. I did a little research and, it seems, this
type of craft or whatever it is has been seen several times in the area over the last few months. Has anyone ever been privy to such a sighting? I
suggested they report what they saw to MUFON or some other group, but they resisted and I don't blame them, since I have had less than favorable
experiences with MUFON, myself. I, also, tried finding information about any large military planes that might exist.
The sighting was near Hagerstown, Maryland.
Just an additional note or question, aimed at those who consider themselves "experiences" of whatever....should I be concerned that my son has now
seen something out of the ordinary? It is not something I would ever hope for my child. Maybe this is nothing, but there's always that fear. I try to
be pragmatic but all the science and information in the world goes out the window the first time that crazy stuff you read about happens to you.
