Hi it's me again, and I didn't want to inundate you all with a bunch of far fetched stories, but this is the only other UFO experience in my family
that needs mentioning. I just talked to my dad about this story tonight so I could post as accurate events as I could. My dad is 82 years old now and
the story has never changed once when he's told it. I used to be skeptical of the UFO stories, but my father and I have a very strong relationship,
he would never lie to me.
My dad was a Tree Trimmer for Consumer Powers and they had just put in a new line through the woods. This happened to run parallel to one of the
roads my dad took to get to work. One morning he was heading to work and when he got up to the spot that was by the new line he saw a bright flash and
some smoke come off the lines through the trees. He explains it as
"sometimes a tree branch will fall and cross the lines and cause it to short out. for a second thats what I thought it was, but it was a brand new
line and we had just trimmed all the trees. I pulled my truck over and got out to see what it was when I saw a disk shaped object rise real slow up
off the lines where the flash came from and it moved slowly across the tree-tops and then stopped and hovered for a second. It was metal colored or
shiny, it was dark, almost like it had a haze around it, but there was colored lights through the center of it that were flashing all around it. The
it started rising up and picked up tremendous speed and in an instant it was gone"
He walked back to the power lines and looked at the spot where it came up, both of the brand new lines were burnt up in a spot as wide as the thing
that came off them was.
Weird huh? I've never heard of any other stories like this. I wouldn't imagine an alien craft relying on a power source from our planet. What
other reason would it have landed/hovered on the powerlines like that for?
