Yes, as the title of the thread insinuates I have had more than one UFO experience. I may share the other one at a later point. Tonight, however, I
want to share this one. The UFO itself was actually not that spectacular. That may come as a disappointment to some of you but I promise the lead up
to the UFO sighting is where the mystery truly lies.
This occurred approximately 8 months ago on an island in the British West Indies. A sparsely populated island. No major industry, no major cities,
not a major port for anything special. A very quiet and typical "island life" type of island.
It was around 10 p.m. and it was a new Moon so the sky was lit with millions of starts. This part of the hemisphere has a fair amount of humidity so
I was pleasantly surprised at how many starts I could actually see. Crystal clear night. I was standing on the balcony of the home we were staying
staring up into the sky and feeling the strong gusty Trade Winds.
If I looked to my left I was looking East and to my right was West. The home sat approximately 200 feet off of the beach so I could easily hear the
sound of the 2-3 foot surf rumbling onto the beach. It really was postcard perfect.
As I was staring up at the night sky counting shooting stars I saw a faint (but very visible) beam shoot from the open ocean to the east across the
horizon to the west. It was approximately 1 KM offshore and approximately 100 feet off the surface of the water. Just to give you a better visual of
what my field of view was here is some detail. I could look east and see the end of the island because it had rocky cliffs. Even though it was a new
Moon the multitude of the stars allowed me to see the silhouettes of the rising cliffs. To my west was the other end of the island and that also
terminated in rocky cliffs. Between my location and to the east was exactly 2.5 miles of beach. From my location to the west was exactly 6.2 miles
of shoreline. The side of the island I was on had almost no population. Very, very sparse. There are no lighthouses on this island and as I
mentioned earlier there are zero industries on this island. It is literally an island you travel to in order to disconnect from society.
So I had a completely unobstructed view the entire length of the island in both directions. Directly in front of me was open ocean and the next
nearest land was over 200 miles away. It is not a major shipping lane nor is it a heavily traveled part of the ocean in general.
The first beam caught me by surprise because I immediately thought that was a very, very weak beam for a lighthouse. Then it dawned on me that there
were no light houses on or near the island and there certainly weren't any sitting in the middle of the ocean. Suddenly, another very faint beam
initiated from the exact same spot in the east as before, however, this time it was angled up at 45 degrees. At this point I thought perhaps it was a
container ship but then I realized the location of where the beam was originating was in an area where the water depth is 2 feet. This particular
location has a massive flats area that is about 6 square miles and is notoriously shallow. Once I realized it couldn't be a container ship I started
to get very perplexed. Then the light show began. First a faint beam would originate from the east. Pause a few seconds. Then a faint beam
answered from the west. Pause a few seconds. Then a faint beam came from directly in front of my location and directly over the house we were in and
over the island. Pause a few seconds. Then another faint beam from the east again. And on and on and on for about 45 minutes.
These beams of light were VERY faint. Almost ghost-like. Had it not been a new Moon and as dark as it were I would say these faint beams would have
not been noticeable. And the width of these faint beams were about the width of a 737 fuselage from about 50-75 feet away. About how far away we are
sitting at a gate in an airport while you are waiting to board your plane. So fairly wide. It was amazing. Then the light show stopped
I looked around to all points of the compass to see if I were missing anything but no more faint beams. Then...and I have no idea why I chose to look
at the spot I chose to look. Call it intuition, call it a summoning, or call it pure luck...but for some reason I decided to turn from looking across
the island and back out towards the open sea about 100 feet off the ocean surface and at that very moment the UFO appeared. It would be the exact
size of a dime if you held it at arm's length from your body. It was a very, very, faintly glowing orange. It appeared in front of me as if someone
were turning on a light that used a dimming switch and they slowly turned it up in intensity. The UFO was completely stationary and completely
silent. It slowly dimmed out...pause a few seconds....then slowly lit back up to a faintly glowing orange. It's shape was a perfect sphere.
Neither the top nor the bottom was brighter. It was a uniform faintly glowing orange. It dimmed once more...pause a few seconds...then lit back up
one last time before it abruptly went out as if someone flipped a light switch. I did not see it "move" or "take off"...it just simple was no
The light show was amazing and very perplexing. The fact that I happened to look directly into a part of the night sky and I mean EXACTLY where the
UFO appeared was very amazing. It was like I was drawn by some unexplainable force to look at a specific part of the night sky at that very moment.
Witnessing the UFO appear softly and dim out with perfectly timed pauses and then abruptly "turning off" was amazing.
The next day I spoke with the owner of the property. He had a house about 200 feet to our west where he and his wife lived. I asked him if he had
ever seen any lights out on the ocean and he was very surprised to hear this question. He and his wife have lived there for 30 years and have never
seen anything like what I explained. The following day I became a subject case matter expert on the island, its origins, its proximity to shipping
lanes, etc. All in an effort to find an explanation for what I witnessed for 45 minutes. I have no idea of the faint beams of light are connected to
the UFO or not. I know both were anomalies and somehow feel they are connected but I can't say how.
Anyway...this was one of my most interesting UFO experiences. I have one other that was very brief I may share at a later point.
