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.

Yeah they did seem almost man made or made by an intelligent life form from materials one would find on a planet like earth. There are also ufo's of the ball/orb type that differ so much from this type, that seem sort of almost some kind of life form. The type that pulsate, change colour and sometimes shape. almost half manufactured and half life form, jeez there's so much variety of life up there!

Last august, I was laying out in the sun on my balcony where I looked up in the sky and I saw this large round orb peaking out between some clouds in the clear sky area of the sky... it was basically a very clear day out with only a few clouds up there.
But this orb looked semi-transparent and opalescent .. it was really quite beautiful but I only saw it up there for a few short minutes before it disappeared.

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 light...it 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.

I was 8 years old. My friend Jeremiah and I were playing soccer in my front yard. I looked at the sky and I remember saying. "wow someone kicked that football pretty high. Jeremiah laughed and agreed. It looked like a black football tumbling down towards us. It then stopped tumbling in midair and hovered. It was about 200 feet above us. within a few seconds it took off extremely fast.
We ran inside my house and told my mom. She naturally didnt believe us.
