Let me first tell you, this is probably nothing, just something that shook me up a bit.
If you know many of my posts, you know I live in a very rural area. There is nothing going on around here at all. I live in a quiet neighborhood
development with maybe 50 houses. Its a big dev. for a small area. Anyway, the reason I am posting this in the ET/UFO forum is because I figured many
of you who have seen ufos may have seen a lot of air traffic after, or because many people here know about aeronautics.
SO here we go. I was in the bathroom washing my hands. I hear and feel a rumble. I figure it is the washer or dry in the next room, then I realize it
is MUCH more powerful and there isn't anyone else in the house to turn it on. I realize its above the house. As I leave the bathroom I hear a
helicopter sound, but louder than what I am used to. It had to be close, I'm not sure how closer, but for a second I thought it would land on the
roof. Needless to say, I froze up for a minute, but then gathered my composure and walked outside. By this time, the copter had quieted a bit, all my
cats ran inside frightened, and the copter was cruising away from my house towards venus in the sky. It was too dark to see what kind it was.
As I gather myself, I begin to look around. This copter wasn't alone, there are about five more, two above a town close to mine, two above a mountain
range miles behind my house, and one ahead of the one that tried to blow my house away. The two above the mountains were only helicopters to me
because they were very slow moving lights, and I had to use my binoculars to see their flashers. All of these would move, then stop for a moment, then
either take off or creep for a moment before they sped away. They were not using any type of pattern as far as i could tell, and they didn't seem to
be going in the same direction. It just didn't seem like they were all after the same goal.
Let me tell you, I have NEVER seen a helicopter near this place, and I've lived here for 13 years. I went to college in Philly, and I saw them there
all the time. As far as I know, the closest military base is about 75 miles away. I don't think they would be after a car, because they wouldn't
send a copter after a car if there aren't any copters within 50 miles to use.
I guess my question is, does anyone here know how low a copter would have to fly to make a 3 story house rumble? What kind of copter could do this?
What does it sound like they were doing? I live in central PA and they all seemed to go NNW eventually. Anything up that way that could be a clue?
Sorry if this is outside this forum, I just got spooked. Living in a tiny hick-town, helicopters are almost entertainment.
