Greetings members of ATS! After months of regularly reading various posts on topics as broad as politics, NWO, UFO's, Aliens, Nostradamus, 2012,
Bible Prophecy, and so forth, I have decided to become a full-fledged member of what I believe is the largest and most proficient location on the
internet for an exchange of ideas, research information, and all things that stir up controversy.
My vitals: 21 yr old male, location: NY, senior at a University, Major: Political Science
The reason I chose the UFO forum is because my first post will be about my experience approximately 8 years ago with what I now firmly believe was an
extra-terrestial craft OR extremely advanced military aircraft but my heart and soul and my overall experience leads me to believe it was indeed the
former that I had encountered. Ok now that the formalities are over let's get down to the actual incident.
Location: Coney Island, NY approx. 8 yrs ago
I was about 13 yrs old when I heard my mother call for me to come out onto the terrace of our apartment (23 floors, we are on the 7th) and see
something strange in the sky over the water. I saw several (approx. 3-6) different aircraft from a distance with very bright lights. One of these
craft approached the shore where I live and hovered/moved slowly onto the street. I can only describe this craft with the phrase
"Giant-Floating-Domed-Football Stadium" with the most impressive array of interchanging lights and colors that mesmerized the eyes. Cut through the
middle of this giant spaceship were several openings that function the same as our windows or atleast I assume that if anything living was in the
ship, it would want to see what is on the outside.
The entire event lasted roughly 12-25 minutes and during this encounter I had a direct line of sight onto this thing. Nothing obstructed my view as my
eyesight was directed onto this ship. Now being still relatively innocent and young, I suddenly became overcome with terror and tried to open the
balcony door and get inside. To my amazement, I could not open the door and my mom would not respond to me crying and yelling to get inside before
this thing has some sort of effect on us. The noise of the trains coming in on the tracks was muted. It seemed that everything had gone deaf in the
wake of this UFO. The street that part of it hovered over is a major street and yet it seemed that no cars pasted during this time which is incredibly
odd yet not impossible because it was semi-late (after 9pm).
Needless to say this thing emitted brilliant patterns of background colors and had a very distinct white light that seemed to act as a search light or
main focus of vision for the craft. This event changed my life forever in ways that I still have yet to discover but its impact still lingers in its
haunting memory at the very least. The UFO hovered silently and then without warning left in the blink of an eye skyward leaving only a faint trail
through the clouds. We immediately went inside when my father came home and any mention of this event to my mother who originally called me out to
view it is met with heavy resistance. My mother refuses to acknowledge this event as a UFO or anything "weird". Now I don't doubt what my mother
says but I do detect some inner tension and anger that arises everytime I have ever brought up the subject of that night.
Now let me narrow down what I didn't see. It was most definetly NOT A) Helicopter (which my mom insists it was), B) Airplane, C) Hallucination or any
aerial anomalie. This ship was real. It was massive. It had mass. It was not like anything I have ever seen in my life and I do research the
occasional black-op military forums and can't let myself believe it was anything but a true UFO. I appreciate everyone who takes time to read this
first post and I hope this provokes an interesting and intriguing discussion based upon my very own UFO experience which I hold nothing less to be
than one of the most interesting and intriguing things I have ever witnessed. I welcome all questions and comments from seasoned and not-so seasoned
veterans of this forum and once again Hello ATS.
