I noticed on your website you had an article on 'How to Photograph a UFO'. We didn't have a camera available with our sighting I listed below.
However, I know a person who went to Mexico, with a group of renown people. They had expensive camera's and knew how to use them. A huge Triangular
UFO was directly above them and None of their camera's would work! Have you or anyone you know of ever experienced this problem?
The below story is true. I've listed it before on the ATS, but thought you may be interested.
Location: Northeast side of the Pahrump Valley foothills to Mount Charleston. It was a cloudless day in September of 1995 and the sky was totally
blue. At that time there was no electricity or phone lines available, in this area. We were extremely secluded from other people. Generators and solar
panels were our source of electricity. The wells generator was a 10K, due to the depth of over 450 feet. That morning the water ran out at 9:30 a.m.
so I had to go outside and pump some more up from the well. The well is about 100 feet from the house. Just as I was going to pull on the rope I heard
an airforce jet and looked up. Airforce jets are certainly not unusual for this area, but what was unusual was there were six star-like objects
following it. I ran to the house to get my daughter to see this strange event. I guess I just wanted someone else to verify what I was in fact seeing.
Within minutes the jet, with the objects following it went out of sight. They were heading north which could lead to Area 51. My daughter and I were
baffled as to what those things were, but I proceeded to pump up the water from the well. We went back inside and my daughter started doing the
morning dishes. We'd talk about those strange lights, following the jet. I brushed it off.... as some military secret project of some kind.
After doing all the mornings chores the water ran out again. It was 11:30 a.m. Just as I opened the door to go outside *THERE THEY WERE*! Directly
above my head at 12:00 o'clock high at approximately 100 feet up. There were anywhere from 150-200 of these star-like objects. I yelled to my
daughter to come see this! We both went outside right underneath them. We just stood there and watched in awe.The objects ranged from the size of a
basketball to that of a tennis ball. They could maneuver up, down, sideways, and zig-zag. They were silent and even appeared to be dancing, across the
sky. Moving ever-so slowly. I felt (they knew) we were watching them. My daughter asked, " Mom what are those things?" Moms are supposed to have the
answers right? This time I didn't have a clue and responded, I don't know??? I call them a star-like objects, because they were a brilliant white
light. These too were moving in a northerly direction. The duration of this incident seemed about twenty minutes. My husband had taken the truck over
to help out our nearest neighbor about 1/2 mile away. Two of the lights left the main *pack* and flew over that area too, which was further northeast
of our place. When my husband got home we told him what happened and asked if he seen anything. He said they didn't see anything because they were
too busy working. My husband believed our story without any problems, because he too has witnessed so many strange things in these skies.
At about 3:30 p.m. we had to go into the town of Pahrump. We ran out of toilet paper and there's no way I'm going to wing it on that! Our daughter
did not want to go with us. I told her if she stays home, she must STAY inside the house! I did NOT want her going outside alone thinking *those*
things could come back! She promised me that she would stay inside and she's never broken a promise. It would only take us about 30 minutes and our
daughter was not a small child at the time.
When we got back home around 4:00 p.m. Our daughter was inside the house crying and appeared extremely pale! I asked her what was wrong and she just
kept crying and crying. My husband made the comment 'maybe we should take her to the ambulance bay and have them check her out. She didn't want
anything to do with that, so she spoke up. "If I tell you,,,you will get mad at me" Right then I knew that she gone outside, after making the
promise that she would not. She said, " I went outside and I don't know why? I know I promised I wouldn't,, but I couldn't help myself.!" This is
the story she told my husband and me.
Mom I went outside shortly after you guys left and I don't know why I did. The lights came back mom. One about the size of of a basketball almost lit
on our 8 foot fence on the north side of the property. She showed us where she was standing and the object would have been approximately 20 feet from
her. She said, " It started making a strange noise. An extremely irritating humming sound and was changing from the light form, into what appeared
metallic." That's when she decided to flee back into our home. The sound it made scared her so bad. She stated she even heard her deceased
grandfather's voice telling her,,,To run inside the house!!!
A few months later our daughter was diagnosed with a thyroid malfunction. I don't know if this has anything to do with the incident or not, but
nobody in our family has ever had thyroid problems?
I guess we were not the only ones in Nevada to see these strange lights. People in Las Vegas seen them too. Garage doors were opening mysteriously,
for no reason. The media was told that the Awax plane caused that. As far as the lights go.... The military brushed it off, by saying it was army
guys, in the nearby mountains using laser beams. My husband and I did see these same lights again, during the 911 no fly time. I was hanging clothes
on the clothes line and he was helping me. Every since our multiple sighting I always make it a point to look up. There were only about a dozen at
that time and they were at a higher altitude. A report was submitted to Peter Davenport, on the 95 sightings. We've seen a lot of other strange
things in these skies, near Area 51, but none of that magnitude!
I'm not a religious person, but I am spiritual. I always knew we were not alone, in the whole universe. I gave an oral report in Junior High School
on the subject and did extensive research. My teacher in turn gave me an 'F' for a grade. Thank-you Shirley for your time and I really appreciate
you coming to the ATS.
