When i was 8 years old, I was at a Boarding school in Worcestershire in England. There was an old tyre attached to a tree behind the school gym and
each evening we would go out and play on it until the bell went for bed.
I remember one evening i was out playing with a friend called Paul, It was just getting darkso i guess it must have been Oct and the year was 1970.
I have never written this story down before but i ahve never forgotten it and often think about it.
While the two of us were messing on the swing i happened to look up t the sky. It;s the sort of thing you do on swings i guess, anyway as i looked up
this vessel, ship whatever it was , was literally just a few hundred meters above our heads. I immediately pointed it out to my friend Paul and we
both observed it clearly against a starlit sky. It blacked out a huge area of the sky and what was strange was that there was not a sound.
The shape of it was irregular, it wasn't round and it wasn't oval or cylindrical, the only shape it reminded me of was a paperweight my father had
given me of the shape of Texas, What i mean was this thing had blocks sticking out at the sides and looked like somthing a kid would build from
It had red, green and blue lights on it but i can't remember if they were in formation or scattered around the base of the craft.
Myself and my friend watched this craft silently move over us and proceed across the school grounds. We chased after it and were able to keep it
insight all the way to the edge of the school bounds where we watched it float away in the distance.
The following morning I remember my friend and I both excitedly rushing to the headmasters office looking for his newspaper, expecting it to be full
of Ufo sightings etc but were shocked to find nothing mentioned.
As the years have gone by i used to think it was strange that an alien craft would have lights with colours that we would reognise, I also thought
about the silence of the craft.
I have read hundred of stories about UFO sightings and am always bias when i hear about other people talking about the silence of these craft. It
makes me believe they really did see something as i know exactly what they were talking about.
I sometimes think about seeing a hypnotist to see if they can regress me so that i can relive the experience as an adult so to speak, to see if i can
gleen some more detail of the craft, but i'm afraid i have also read a lot about regressive hypnosis and believe it could simply implant false
memories. Boy do i wish i could relive that sighting now as an adult.
My Point being to the op, People who have genuinely seen UFO's and are sure it wasn't a balloon, helicopter etc, don't really care about having to
prove it to anyone else. They are not trying to convert people to believers.
They know for sure themeselves that there is someting out there and thats enough.
People like us don't visit forums like ATS hoping to be convinced of UFO's we are here just looking and waiting for the event when everyone else
gets to see one.
