In my opinion it's almost useless to start a thread about an actual encounter of some sort, Unless you have a really extravagant story, like sleeper
- your experience is going to get lost in the shuffle.
So far in my lifetime, I've seen things on two occasions and even with the uniqueness of others witnessing both events, the stories will pale in
comparison to that of sleeper or something like the Betty & Barney Hill abduction.
I think people are looking for the big thrill in a time where reality shows are the "in" thing - and there is no real room for stories of a more
1971 - Southwest West Virginia (Coal Country). Myself, my sister, my mother, my grandmother, my aunt. Broad daylight. Not a cloud in the sky.
Silver/stainless steel looking disc with like an upside down bowl on the top. No wings. No discernable windows. No lights. No sound. We all
watched it for a couple minutes it didn't move - just sat there. Ran off to play - 10/15 minutes later my aunt told me to go back outside and see if
it was still there. It was still there in the same spot. On my own went back out maybe 15 minutes later and it was gone. We told my dad and Grandpa
when they got back to the house. We didn't report it. My grandma didn't have indoor plumbing at the time, let alone a phone. I was 6 years
Obviously this could have been a military project of some sort, but 35 years have passed and this particular craft isn't gracing our skies.
1983 - Extreme eatern Kentucky (Coal Country) Myself & my stepsister. 11:00 p.m. at night up a hollow waiting for a cab. A hollow contains a wide
path up between two mountains. It had snowed but was very clear and the stars were out. One star was brighter than the others. I pointed it out to my
step-sister. She starts looking for something in her purse. The star started moving down from it's position and slightly to our left until it was
traveling the length of the mountain on our left. It moved mabye 15 or 20 mph. I told her the star was moving and we both watched it until our heads
couldn't turn to the left no more and it started coming down the mountain. It started down the mountain towards us. Frightened we both ran
screaming inside the house. My dad and stepmom came out and we couldn't find it. It never changed shape, it never changed color and it never changed
For myself there is no logical answer to what we saw. I guess I could try to convince myself that the military uses little bright white stars that
contain some form of artificial intelligence that are able to propel themselves towards living entities.
This was not an orb that we see depicted in photos. This was a clean crisp white star. And it does become sort of a religious experience because to
this day we are awed by what we saw. We can't explain it.
How do you report something like that? And why would you want to?
I've researched the area a bit and found a few interesting things but nothing really relates to what we saw. So I come here just hoping to see if
others may have had a similar event, but not many are reporting stars coming down from heaven.
We were young and we ran. I can't change that, but I wish I could. So many "what ifs".
In the example you provided, the person showed no fear and if a person could handle that - they could handle just about anything.
But like you, I would only share with my closest friends and family and I see nothing wrong with posting it here. I would never make an official
report of any kind though. I feel it's none of "their" business.
