ive seen meteors quite often; ive even seen one Explode midair and Light up the entire sky for at least 30 seconds to a minute
this was 3am in the night
meteors make straight streaks ; easily identified
*btw ive seen a meteor in broad daylight
it made a HUGE smoke trail all the way to the ground
when i saw it i thought it was a ICBM w/chemical weapons or something! LOL!!! there was no nuclear blast so i said to my friends "OH NO CHEM WAR
but that night on the news *in odessa* they reported a small town outside of odessa a meteor landed
a kid found it on the sidewalk next to where they were playing basketball
the city police tried to confiscate it but the govt said "NO" and the kid got to sell it for 40,000$ i believe
ill find the link for ya
satilites travel at a constant speed if im not mistaken
and satilites *space shuttle and space station* are easily identified in the night time; if your used to sky gazing for hundreds of hours
helicopters; jets; VSTOL aircraft; rockets;weather balloons; whatever you can name i can identify readily
nowdays my vision is failing rapidly *thanks PC moniter*
and when i see a "UFO" i ALWAYS get a 2nd opinion
i get someone else to look at it too to confirm what i see
but several years ago when i saw over 30 + Actual UFOs my vision was perfect
what did i see?
i saw a small dot of light moving; then it stopped ; then it grew to a large size; then began moving at super high speeds back and forth
and then when 2 military jets arrive at the scene *coming from 2 different directions about 90degrees angle*
the dot of light would dart off upwards into "outer space" at speeds i cannot even imagine...
that was the basic sighting; ive seen this type of phenomena over 30 times with over 30 witnesses
NEVER did i see one alone; I ALWAYS had someone with me
the BEST sighting however; was a DISK that flew over my house one night at about 11pm
my friend Levi *now paratrooper* and I got a friend Chris to go "see the UFOs" with us
we expected it to take at least half the night to finally spot one;
but the Moment we got outside Chris said "What the F*** is that???"
and Levi and I looked up and saw it
Metal round disk w/maroonish colored lights on bottom
it spun like a wheel and it even looked like a wheel from this perspective
the metallic bottom of it was 'segmented' in a way; that is why i say it was "a wheel in the sky"
draw a circle and draw radius lines from the center of it
thats what it looks like
the Up Close sighting is by far the most amazing thing ive ever seen in my entire life
i was crappin my pants; we all were when we saw it
little dots of light flying around at mach50 + still cannot compare to the sight of a friggin disk up close!!!
this thing flew over odessa at 11pm or so; a city of 100,000 people
and Chris < Levi and I were the only ones to see it ; it seems
always call the local airport and ask the radar tower people "what is that"
if they say "its a 747 w/southwest airlines" well there you go it was a airliner ***which always have blinking lights***
but when the radar tower guy says "There wasnt ANYTHING there"
you know something is amiss
Especially when they deny seeing the MILITARY JETS....
i am NOT saying the UFO is "aliens" but i am implying that is a very possible answer
its quite obvious ET pilots the things; in a way
they always dart off into outer space when Human Aircraft try to intercept it
i dont know of any Humans that go into outerspace in this manner; so i safely assume it was Probably ET
The Disk i saw very well could have been Military; but im doubting that for the most part
Why would they fly right over my house in a city of 100,000 people?
are they nuts?
ET may have no reservations about that; but the military is always being very secretive; so i assume they had little involvement being the object
flaunted itself so prolificly....
*** i know ive told my UFO story on here countless times but i went thru it agian for the member whom asked me about it***
hey and gimme a few months or so to get a good job going and if you cannot afford to visit Odessa ; i can arrange to help you afford a train ticket
i am NOT joking; once i get some $$$ id love to show all of you !
keep in mind i havent lived in odessa since january 2000, but due to the massive amount of sightings ; i will assume *to my own expense* that they
still regularly visit the area
like i said; a wager is at hand
if im wrong; which im not; but in case you dont see anything after we waste a few 100 hours; ill pay you for it
but when u see it; id like a 100$
fair deal eh?
until i can get hitched w/a good job; i can only part w/100$ on the wager
once i get some good $$$ coming in; i can afford to help other ways in getting people there *train ticket bus ticket etc*
so if your broke you gotta wait; but if u can afford the trip
by all means make it and go see for yourself
ONE NOTE:::: do not talk to the locals more than you have to; they are nuts usually
the reason i did not take a camera was because well ; several reasons
i only have a photo camera; not a video camera
and a Photo of a dot of light moving ; just looks like a Non Moving Star; in the photo
still photos of most UFO sightings are worthless
plus i never expected to see one up close either
if i had a photo of the "up close" sighting
it would be definate and we would all see it clearly
how i hatemyself for not having a camera that night
i am pretty sure however; that no matter where you live; the same phenomena exists there also
But it requires work
you cant see one unless you go look
they are Everywhere and its a near daily occurance
but think of it like this
Your looking for something super small in a huge huge sky
Your looking for a 10second snip out of hundreds of hours of earth time
it is HARD and DIFFICULT
you Must be Patient
You will be Rewarded
a needle in a haystack in a barn in a complex of a thousand barns...
any information you may need in regaurds to this
or if you wanna ask questions
im here and ill be ready to answer anything you may ask
thanks for your time and please do not be offended by my anger towards those who Dont Look yet Still Deny; because I know from First Hand expierance
that The Phenomena is Real and its happening almost everyday !!
