I've never seen a UFO.
But a couple people in my family have. I've had many other odd experiences, but this is not one of them. The following are a couple of UFO sightings
I've had told to me from two people that I would consider very credible...my father and my sister.
What makes me think that these two sightings are credible (besides the fact that they are from family members) is:
1. My father says he has never told anyone about his sightings except for me. They happened after all his children moved out of the house and because
my father and I share an interest in such things, that is the only reason he did.
2. My sister's experience was similar and in the same area as my dads. She was not aware of my fathers sighting when she told me her account of what
happened. At the time, I'd only told her that our father had had a sighting, but never gave her specifics. Yet, her tale matched up with his in
regards to what type of UFO she saw, the location, and how it reacted/moved.
With that in mind, the following are the two accounts I heard from both of them at separate times and without knowledge of what the other said. I put
this in short stories because I'm not looking to provide much more information than what I am about to. For me, this is mainly about just documenting
what was said to me, somewhere that it can be retrieved at a later date. As well as sharing the experiences with anyone that has interest in such
My fathers sighting:
It happened twice for him. Both times it was in the summer and in the evening around 9-9:30 p.m. just starting to get dark out. The first sighting
he was in his computer room and caught a glimpse of light/movement out of the corner of his eye. When he turned to look out the window and see what it
was, he saw two light spheres moving around in the field behind his house. As he watched, the third one seemed to appear right out of the air. It grew
bigger in size and joined the other two. It was only a few minutes later that he observed the last one,a bigger sphere, appear out of no where as
well. The three smaller ones moved up to join the bigger one, then they flew off at slow speed to the south east close to the ground.
The second sighting was a couple of years later. He saw the spheres appear around the same time in the field behind the house again. He watched them
for a few seconds and then went to get my mother so he could show her. By the time they got back the spheres were gone.
That was his account of events to me. He didn't describe them as any more than lighted spheres , although he did say they started out small and then
grew bigger. My mother corroborates his story by remembering him wanting her to come and look at the lights in the back yard. And that is all the info
I have on that sighting...
My sisters sighting:
She states that she had just picked up her kids from my parents house after work and had driven a few miles when she saw a large lighted sphere
rise from one of the fields behind her in her rear view mirror. She got scared for herself and her kids safety and so stopped at the small general
store about a mile and a half away from my parents house. There was already a bunch of cars at it. Normally you would see maybe 1 or 2. She said the
parking lot was full. So she gathered her kids and went inside.
She said there were a ton of people in the store. No one was buying anything and everyone was just standing around, silent as the craft slowly passed
over the area. As soon as the craft passed over, a few people started to leave, but my sister waited longer, wanting to make sure it was gone before
she put her kids back in the car and drove in the same direction it was headed. She said it was weird, everyone knew what was going on, but no one
wanted to even acknowledge it.
She said the UFO was sphere shaped and that it was big and moving slow and seemed quite low to the ground. Then after it passed the store it picked up
speed and flew off quickly. It was heading due east. Also, that it seemed to come from the direction of the field behind the house where my parents
That is my sisters account of her UFO sighting. There are some similarities here to note. Both saying the craft was a lighted sphere, not the
traditional UFO. Both saying that it came from the field behind my parents house and just "appeared". Both saying that it was slow moving and low to
the ground (at least in the first moments of both sightings)
My sisters happened at least over 10-15 years ago. (My sisters children are all grown up now and they were young enough then to require a babysitter)
My dad says his were at least 5 years ago..
So there you have it. Two UFO stories that are similar yet different. I can't tell you for sure that they are real. As I said, I find them credible
because of who relayed them to me. But I do find it interesting that two people from the same family could have had such experiences and never talk
about them to one another. Whatever the case, real or not, we'll never know for sure. But they are interesting to hear about, no matter which way you
lean with regards to the UFO debate.
