i was around 14 years old in my backyard playing basketball. I was just about to walk in and something in the sky caught my eye. It was sunny that day and not a cloud in the sky. RIGHT smack in the middle of the sky was a hovering clear object changing shapes. I live in a populated area (long island, NY) so something like this never happens!

the object was very large, and not very far. It was probably the size of my thumbnail if i held my arm out all the way. I ran inside to get my brother and we stood and watched it for about 10 minutes. I ran back inside after we both came to the conclusion that it was DEF something that needed to be videotaped.
I ran in and told my parents and they flipped out on me, saying its a plane, dont waste the tape in the camera (meanwhile they refused to go out and see it). It was very strange because they are normally not like that but they got soooo upset when i told them to come outside and look. Anyway, i go back out and my brother is still looking up, the object is gone and he said it shot off into the air and showed me a tiny little dot all the way up in the sky. We watched the dot (probaby 80,000 miles in the air) move slowly across the sky until it dissapeared.

The title is a bit ambiguous. The first time you saw a UFO is a one off... so how can you choose the best story? Just being picky.

First time i saw a UFO was actually when i was meant to be paying attention in class at school. I was looking at the window as per usual, and spotted something (from the distance it was just a shiny dot)darting in out of the clouds just above the horizon. I pointed it out to my mates and they had a look as well and freaked. So the teacher comes and has a look... says 'well isn't that interesting, however, we have work to do'.. and continues the lesson... When i looked back i couldn't find it again.

i was taking a guess, commercial planes top off at around 35,000 feet i believe, so this one was about twice that.... i meant feet.

I've only had one occation and it was pretty mundane. I was looking at the sky, when I thought I spotted jupiter. This light was pretty bright, the brightness of sirius. As I was watching this light, it slowly faded out to darkness. I was confused cause I thought it was a star. I was even ready to get out my telescope to view it closer but I wasn't fast enough. Could have been anything for all I know.

It was one of the dark days in the winter when my dad and i was walking home, when we was almost at the door something caught my attention in the sky, it was a white glowing ball, pretty huge moving around in the sky in "impossible" turns etc, after a while i went in to watch it from the window inside and then it was gone. (this was the first time)

I saw two UFO's about 2 & 1/2 years ago.

Sort of shell shaped and brightly colored. First was a dark maroon, pink and the other was tan and yellow.

Some of the other locals also saw them, but I believe the current running, official story is they were an elaborate hoax because of a comment of someone's huge bottom, I think.

Had a strange event occur to me the following night, seen by many curiosity seekers due to the first event. No official explanation for that one, yet (maybe the same one though, because I did comment on her fat ass, although about 1 year before these events).

1982 Approx 10:30pm mid summer Central PA, USA.

Whole family watched a formation pretty-much directly overhead, but high up. They formed a large roughly circular formation. they would alternately move in to the center of the formation, then back out. Color would alternate through red and blue as they did this. They didn't exhibit any quick, mind-blowing moves or anything. It was subdued and a pretty thing to see actually.

My mom, dad, and sister were just kinda hypnotized by the whole thing and I was like... "hey where's the camera!" so of course I ran in and couldn't find it. By the time I got back outside they were gone (typical eh?

I have since corroborated the story with my parents and sister. So I know we saw something. It certainly was NOT swamp gas from Uranus.

Have had a few since, but nothing quite as spectacular as that.

edit: There were approximately 5 objects.

In 1974, me and two other pals, just kids, were out running around on a cold, clear November night. We lived out on the edge of town and when it got dark, it really got dark.

We were walking across a very large farm field when one of my buds stopped dead and said "Huh".

We looked back at him and he was looking straight up. "Check it out" he says.

Directly above us were three spots of light moving as a group across the sky in a triangular formation. You could see other stars between them so I assumed they were individual objects.

With an abruptness that cannot be described, two of the objects shot away from the third object in opposing directions. They actually created a streak of light when they left.

We just looked at each other with expressions like "No way we just saw that".

I grew up in and around Air Force bases. These were not your standard issue aircraft.

The first and only time I saw a "ufo" that i really thought was possibly an alien ship, or secret military plane, was when i was 17. I was riding with my Dad in his truck between Alamogordo NM, and Cloudcroft NM. It was Oct. 20 1997, i remember because we were driving home from elk hunting and my birthday was the day before. Right at the top of the windshield from my viewpoint I saw a shiny silver object. It looked like a "spoon" in fishing lure terminology, and moved like a fishing lure going through the water. I leaned forward to get a better view. It was extremely fast and the way it moved would have killed the pilot by excessive g-force. I saw it for a split second where I estimate that it moved about 35degrees across the sky. It could have been as low as 2000' above the ground, or as high as 40,000 feet. If it was at 40,000 it was a huge object, if it was at 2000' is was the size of a car. It literally zig-zagged back and fourth at least 6 times before disappearing completely in a streak.

I was 12 years old and it was the summer of 1978. I was home alone and it was around 6PM, so there was plenty of daylight left. I'd finished mowing and was retrieving the basketball from the neighbor's back yard. That's when I saw a bunch of weird lights illuminating the property about five houses down at the bottom of a hill. But these lights were unlike any I had ever seen, almost 3-D looking and all working in tandem much like the legs of a spider...10-20 of them efficiently searching every inch of ground and working their way outward from the point of origin, which was blocked from my view.

I lived at the top of a hill and I needed to walk diagonally down the hill closer to the lights for an unobstructed line of sight. I was spooked on a primal level so I ran to the back of the the neighbor's yard and started easing down the hill. Then my eyes acquired a most unimaginable visual... all those swiveling search lights were eminating from the bottom of a massive round metallic object (was reflecting sunlight) hovering silently about fifty feet off the ground. It looked to be about five times bigger than my home with fixed white lights and small windows equally spaced all along the outer edge.

Almost immediately, as if sensing my movement or body heat, one of the beams of light affixed itself directly on me. I shielded my eyes with my hands and sensed a state of suspended animation, of sorts. The next thing I know, I'm back in my driveway standing beside some type of EBE... shoulder to shoulder.... unafraid ....and looking down. My attention was focused on a device that the EBE was holding (which seemed very similar to "ziggy" on 'Quantum Leap', as I would be reminded of years later when this TV show first aired). All communication was telepathic and I did not look at the EBE's face, nor did I have the urge to.

At one point I was instructed to interact with this device, which resulted in a weird but pronounced sense of accomplishment. At the same moment, the EBE just vanished into thin air, along with the UFO. About 90 minutes had gone by the best I could tell. The strange thing is that I didn't tell anyone about my encounter. It was the most spiritual experience of my life and I considered it very personal.

About 8 years later, my best friend and I had a UFO encounter while driving along a highway on New Years Eve. On the way down the road I told my friend about my experience in 1978, and was the first time I'd mentioned this to anyone. Later in the evening, about 3 1/2 hours of time was discovered to be missing along with our pissed off dates.

As strange as it all sounds, it's all true. Actually, I would be more descript if I could find the words.

About 10 years or so ago I was walking outside in my backyard. And for some unknown reason I just decided to look up in the sky. And right then between two trees I saw a triangle shaped object with three round lights on each corner. I saw it for about 10 seconds moving slowly and then it went away over the neighbors house.

And then a couple months ago I went to a book store and picked up a UFO book. And the book had a whole chapter about triangular UFO sightings in the exact area where I lived at the time, ten years ago. Seems like many others saw triangular UFO's the same time and place I did.

post your best story about the 1st time you saw a ufo

...well the title in itself makes it sound like seeing U.F.O.s is as common as going on vacation and sharing your slides with the friends and family afterwards.

That's a good one haveseen4myself. Have you had other missing time events? Or compiled them into some kind of cohesive diary? I'd like to hear more about what your ebe looked like.

My best UFO story is - I was sitting on my couch under the large living room window, chatting with a friend of mine. When suddenly through the closed window and wooden frame came a spherical object about the size of a basketball.

My perception seemed to ooze into a different feel and I remember thinking that's a perfect sphere - how can that be??

Most bizarrely - it was metallic looking with a ring of lights around its circumference in primary colors, red, green, blue...

It hovered there above my friend and I for awhile and then went back through the glass and wood.

We seemed incapable of discussing the odd event and said only -"We've had company" and then went back to our original conversation.

I don't know if there was missing time.

im ALWAYS looking up to the sky.. people get mad at me when im having a convo with them and see me staring up. Unfortunetly ive seen a bunch of shooting stars but have only seen 1 ufo and that was in the middle of the daytim(story is in beginning of thread) i guess NY isnt a very good place to live for UFOs.

I've had some pretty crazy dreams and sleep related experiences. But as far as being conscious of missing time, I only know of the two that I mentioned before. The 1985/86 encounter that my friend and I had seemed to stem from us being in the right place in the right time. We observed a triangular shaped craft as we traveled along a highway. The object rose above the treeline, slowly rotated and cocked up at an angle so that the three lights on the bottom were facing directly at our car. Then it left the atmosphere in a split second, zig-zagging in thousands of small straight lines... it wasn't a fluid motion at all from our perspective. Since we were almost directly under the UFO, I think we might have been affected by its energy field. We noticed that no traffic was visible in either direction after the sighting, which was impossible on this very busy four lane highway just after dusk on New Years Eve. Traffic eventually started coming from the opposite direction, but I did not see any headlights behind us the rest of the 20 or so miles to our exit. Then we realized that approx. 3.5 hours of time was missing.

I have actually seen about five of them, & I don't mean just dots in the night sky either. The most memorable one was when our family was returning home on Christmas night. As we rounded a small hill, we all saw this saucer shaped flying disc. It had one huge white light in the middle, & two smaller red lights on either side.

It was only about 20 stories high, & made no sound whatsoever. We pulled off the road to watch it, & it floated directly over our car. It then proceeded to float about 100 yards out into a pasture, & came to a complete stop in mid air.

It then rotated around until it's enourmous light was shining directly at us, slowly it descended, & landed in the pasture, & turned of every was completely dark as I recall. WE got out of the car and were actually going to go knock on the saucers door so to speak, when sudenly a freakishly high wind blew, which further scared us, so we jumped back in our car & sped away.

My other sightings were also awesome, but I'll save those for another day.
