Okay, I debated heavily with myself whether or not to post this little odd happing, because it was just so weird. Then I thought, well, where else
can I talk about it???
Bear in mind that I don't drink alcohol, nor do I do any kind of hallucinogenic stuff...
This happened fast, too quick for pictures, AND too small for my iPhone camera to do anything with. It would have needed to be a video. (my phone was
inside anyway...I didn't have it on me.)
Here's what I saw:
I went out on the back porch and happened to look up during the day - it was clear with a blue sky, by the way... There was this ball-shaped object,
not very high up - no more than the top of the trees, spinning. I thought at first it was a leaf caught up in some kind of updraft, but then it
stayed exactly in that spot, not going either lower or higher, and it really looked more round than anything else.
The color was a light brown (thus why I thought it might be a dried fall leaf on the wind). It was not leaf shaped. Then "POOF" it disappeared. I
don't mean it shot off rapidly, it just was there one second and gone the next. It was unsettling, but I can usually talk myself out of "believing"
something weird happened...you know, maybe I just didn't see it right...trick of the ole eyes...etc.
So I'd talked myself out of that one, but I continued to look around the sky, just to see if I could see the dang ball again. Nope.
But then a smallish bird (robin sized?) suddenly, and out of nowhere, swooped over my house. Normal, right? But it looked odd. It had outspread
wings, motionless, and it looked oddly frozen, once again holding position, neither soaring forward or going up or down...just frozen in space. It
looked sort of solid - like it wasn't a real bird but a bird-shaped object.
Then it jerked forward suddenly with no wing motion. Then it froze, then jerked straight forward again - did this a couple more times. I thought I
was losing my mind as this was totally not normal, but I thought about what it could be and came up with an answer. "Bird-shaped drone," I told
myself, even though it was not very high up and was totally silent without that tell-tale buzzing sound you get from drone propellers. Still, I
thought..."must be a drone."
Until it too went "POOF" as if it jerked forward into a crack in the sky - the sky literally ate it at a hard edge. It disappeared as if "flying"
into an invisible edge of sky into some other world or invisible object right above me. I know this sounds weird. I know it sounds impossible. But
the dang thing wasn't natural, did not behave like a normal bird, and it did not fly away - it just...went "poof."
Both objects were totally silent. Both happened in broad daylight. I've never seen anything like this before, nor since in the week or so that
passed. I told no one but my husband, but he seemed creeped out so I didn't go into much detail...
This whole "bird" thing lasted maybe 30 seconds. My phone was inside. I had just come out for a moment to take out the trash...
Anyway... Has anyone else seen anything like this? It was definitely off the charts weird. I know "pics or it didn't happen" - I get that. I can't
prove a darn thing here, and thus I'm in the Grey Area. I'm just wondering if I'm alone in this experience or not...
