I've been spending a good deal of time searching the heavens over the years, hoping to see what so many others have been so fortunate to see, without luck. I'm curious how much time you all spend looking up, especially if you've seen something.

In the process I've learnt a good deal of the constellations, so no one can say it's a total waste of time


I think it's safe to say I spend about two hours, four or five nights a week, scanning the skies. I try to walk instead of drive at night and my balcony has a good view that I take advantage of while listening to late night radio.

Much like you I too have been scouring the skies over the years to no avail.


Almost every night I take a quick look outside. If it's nice out and clear I will stay out for up to an hour, sometimes more sometimes less, all depends how I feel and what I'm doing.

There's no pattern to my outings either, since I have been to hundreds of places between Manitoba and Alberta I have gone out to scan the skies in lots of different locations and times.

Also, since I got my new telescope I have been out allot more lately watching the stars and planets. Every once in a while I'll take a break from the telescope to have a smoke and just watch for meteors and satellites.

To this day the nearest thing to a sighting I've had was 3 objects that if seen by themselves I would have said were satellites due to their size, speed, direction, and brightness but were flying together and weaving around each other as they sped across the sky.

I know they were not planes or satellites but what they were I cannot say.

Alas, I will continue to watch the skies till I can no longer look up because it's something I have fallen in love with.

Not just the search for UFOs, but the sky and heavens themselves are a wonder to behold.

It gives opportunity for inner reflection and thought about life and the universe. For me anyway.

This is the longest post I have written on ATS so I will end it hear and maybe contribute more later.
Thanks for bringing up the memories!

P.S If you never look up you will never see anything. Keep your eye on the sky!

I spend alot of time looking too. Well, about an hour a night, and I've been watching for awhile... Never seen anything (yet), but I know they're out there. There's no way ALL of these people are lying...

And crap, even if I see a man-made ufo, that would almost be just as much validation... Just perhaps in a different way.

I watch the skies constantly, mostly because I love stars and other astronomical objects. I look for all kinds of things: satellites, high altitude aircraft, balloons, the ISS. I look for any changes in key stars that I've mapped out in the sky for further observation . Every so often I'll go to a mountain nearby and camp out for a few days just to get a few good shots.

I spend about 30 minutes or so watching the skies a night just while I have a smoke outside, maybe longer some nights if I spot a satellite or something drifting around.

The only thing I've seen that was of major interest and I've no idea to this day what it was, was almost a streak of fire I saw flying one night that looked like a plane coming down, it just fizzled out to smoke as it got close to the ground but I was going crazy asking everyone I knew if they'd seen it. Not one word of meteors, planes going down or anything...

It's forever going to puzzle me as to what that was!

For what it is worth:

In 49 years I have never actually seen a physical UFO, but just now, 06:25 in NJ I saw something totally weird.

I went out side to have my usual Morning AM coffee and smoke in the back yard. I looked up and saw an incredibly bright star. But it wasn't a star.

I was looking straight at it because it was so bright, I thought it might be Venus or whatever, then the sucker went dim, almost down to disappearing, but instead disappearing of it started moving and a few second later it was gone.

I wasn't a helicopter it was way too high and bright, and it couldn't have been a plane the light was way too bright. and it vanished very strangely.

No clouds anywhere, totally clear.

I will be thinking about this all day today.

Whats up!

I live in holland. I had my first sighting about a year ago at about 6 PM. It was light outside, and i saw this glowing orb flying across the sky and I was like WOW
!

Then i started looking at the sky at night, when the sky was clear.
Now i have been checkin the sky for about a year.

I saw more and more, bigger ones and bigger ones throughout the months.
I know what i saw. UFO'S.

I started writing my sightings down(on paper like this -> ""| = 1 ufo" and "|-| = 2 ufos flying together or 2 in the sky at the same time

I didnt have a camera. so i couldnt document the things i saw.
But i really dont care what people say, because i know what i have seen.

My mother has been my witness multiple times, we have witnessed alot of super crazy ufo's flying over.

one time, i saw a pretty big one flying over our house, and i got my mom outside to check it out, then i said to her: "If u are lucky, u will see 3 ufos in the sky at once, but only if u super lucky"(because a while back i saw 3 in the sky at once)... And as i said that to her, 2 OTHER ufo's appeared in the sky. We were like WHAT THE HELL!?

But from what i have documented on my papers is that i have seen over a 130 ufos in a few months. then i stopped writing it down, because i personally didnt feel like writing it down anymore.

After that i still see em almot every night.

Even one night, i saw 24 flying glowing objects in the sky in 1 and a half our.
That was the most i have seen ever in that little time. They where coming and going like crazy.

Sometimes i'm like "Lets to outside to check the sky for something" and then as im walking outside, there appears one.

The craziest UFO i seen was, coming from the horizon, with a pretty fast speed, but when it reached out area, it didnt went that fast anymore. It went straight over my head. The light it produced was intense and bright and big as hell! I seemed like it was flying about 50 to 100 meters up in the sky. It was so bright that i needed to close my eyes a bit to actually check it out normal. It did not produced ANY sound.

I even saw ufos flying over in formation.

None of my sightings ever produce any sound, they where completely soundless.

So yeah, thats what i wanted to share with you guys

honest to god i don't even look at the sky anymore. i'm so paranoid about my entire day being throw in a blender cause the surgeons decided to slice me up again. once you've stepped beyond the accepted concept of sanity and see who travels the infinite sky you'll find yourself a lot less interest in it.

I've put a lot of time in camping too, I've been to a good chunk of the provincial parks in BC and AB, but UFOs don't seem to like the areas I visit.

Whenever I look up I always picture what it might be like to be on a planet orbiting one of those stars, the things you'd see, what might live there if anything. I can never help but wonder if there isn't someone sitting on their "deck", on a distant planet, looking back at our star and wondering the same.

Oh dood, it's like 24/7. Wake in the night for a piddle, check the sky through the curtains. Walking down the shopping street (while the misses is inside the clothing shops) checking out the sky. Just bought a new second hand MR2 car and it's the first one I had in years with a tin top so no more pulling into stop overs, taking out the glass and looking up to the sky.

I look up numerous times when I'm outside everyday. I have had several ufo sightings and the best ones have been when I wasn't even thinking about it or trying to watch for them.
Most of them have occured during smoke breaks. Usually within five minutes as that is how long it takes me to have a smoke. I have also had numerous questionable sightings that might have been satellites, I'm just not sure. Keep looking up and it will happen!!!! Like the saying goes, when you least expect it.

I spend a lot of time outdoors (thank goodness for wifi lol) daytime and nighttime....I live about 6200 feet above sea level, live in a city that has more sunny days than any other city in the US, extremely clear skies, hardly any city lights at night..............and Ive never ever seen anything that could be considered a UFO.

I have lived and traveled all over the US and outside the US...........and Ive never ever seen anything that could be considered a UFO.

I look to the skies more than I look to the ground......and Ive never ever seen anything that could be considered a UFO.

Everything I see is explainable.

Sucks to be me I suppose. *shrug* Maybe someday.

lol I have a really funny story about scanning the skies. I was riding home from work on my bike, not motorcycle, lol bike, and I spotted something in the sky. I was riding slowly while trying to keep my eye on the road and the object, I see the object about to go behind the treeline so I turn really quick trying to see it and BOOM, ran right into a car parked at a stop sign!! The poor woman in the car thought she killed me lol, only a few scratches and cuts and it ended up being only the ISS. The stupid things I do for UFOlogy......

Scouring the skies on Friday 25sept/09 @ 8:50pm EST
I spotted a brilliant white blue/green light race downward from the sky to the top of the treeline. It was so bright it lit up the little town I was in. Harriston, Ontario, Canada.
I thought that it might be a craft crashing down, but I got a little to excited. Always hoping for my very first craft sighting.

This one turned out to be a meteor. Also seen in Newmarket,Ontario,Canada around same time or 9pm ish. It made the news. It lit up the entire dash of my car so white.

But a great site to see.
Still no activity of odd craft flying about in London,Ontario.
