I did not see what your girlfriend saw. But I saw a UFO (I have nothing else to call it) in Allentown hovering over the park near the intersection of
Tilghman and Cedarcrest blvd in the spring of 1986 ( I'm pretty sure of the year, but it was a long time ago). This is the west end of Allentown in
the general vicinity of Dorney Park, but it was not near the park.
After many many years, I finally decided to search the net to see if anyone out there posted on what my mother and I saw, along with other strangers
to whom we never spoke. It was daytime with a clear sky. It was rush hour. And my mother and I observed this object hovering just above the tree
line across the street from where the outback steakhouse is today.
My mom had picked me up from school. We had just finished eating at the Arby's (don't judge us), left to get in our car, and there was a couple
already standing in the lot looking at this thing.
The object was completely still. It wasn't making any noise, and it was free of contact with the ground or any other object. It was clearly
circular and grew wider from it's top down to its midsection. The lower half appeared indented from the widest point of its upper half, and the
lower section narrowed to its base. It was silver metalic with broad whitte rectangular light panels evenly spaced around it's main upper body, and
it had red lights which were running in a chasing patern in a cirle around it's base. It's had for me to specify it's size, but it was big enough;
I would say larger than a house, about 60 0r 70 feet across or perhaps larger. It was neither massive nor small, but of respectable size. It was
roughly two stories from base to top.
My mother and I watched the object for a few minutes, and then she had seen enough and told me to get in the car. As we drove away I kept looking
back and it never moved as far as I could tell. This also mean
Because it was daylight in a busy traffic area during rush hour, and, because it was visable from a shopping center parking lot, I'm sure other
people besides my mother and I and the couple near us must have seen this, but My mom and I didn't talk about it again for a long time after. It
was a bizarre experience, that I suppose she just wanted to forget and I had no reason to talk about it because I couldn't expect anyone to believe
me. It was ridiculously unexpected to see something so inexplicably out of place in a crouded and highly visable location. It would be like walking
into a your living room and finding a live dolphin on you couch. Explain that to someone when you didn't have a camera with you at the time.
Maybe I should have started a new post, but since this sighting was in Allentown I thought maybe someone else that saw what I saw might come here.
By the way, I have a frined who a few years ago saw somethign hovering over rt 22 during mid day. She drove under it. It shook her up. I told her
my story and she felt a little less crazy.
My mother and I stayed silent about our experience until one day when my sister came to our house with her four year old son in tow and she was in
tears because of something she saw in the sky just outside of Allentown. My four year old nephew and she were both able to describe the object in
detail as they saw it in broad daylight as well. It was nothing like a plane, but neither was it like what my mother an I saw. Because my sister was
so overrought and afraid, and like your girlfriend, in tears, I turned to my mother and asked: "Can I tell her?" My mother simply responded, "Go
ahead". I recounted our experience to her and she looked at us in disbelief. She couldn't understand why we never said anything to her or anyone
else. I told her we'd never spoken about it between the two of us since the day it happened. We never even told my father. When she asked Why, I
said, "Donna, who would have believed us?"
I guess the experience is not as rare as we might expect
