When I was a little nipper, say 7-9 yrs of age, my mother and I were going up the road from our house to visit my grandmother (for some reason, my
father had gone ahead of us, perhaps to visit with one of my mother's younger brothers who still lived at home at that time.) who lived maybe a
quarter of a mile away. We got out on the street and had gone maybe a hundred yards or less from our drive when my mother noticed a large, glowing
ball of light off the road, over a large oak tree.
She pointed it out, and stopped the car. We sat there for a couple of minutes, looking at it, trying to figure out what it was. It's difficult to
describe even now, as I don't have a great analogy. Imagine a giant basketball. (My biggest problem is I don't know of anything round that is as
large as this object was, and I'd hesitate to try and guess the dimensions, especially now after so many years.)
Let's say it's the size of a swimming pool? But spherical.
The edges were blurred, as if it were vibrating. And it made no noise what so ever. The tree top was whipping about as if it were being blown by a
breeze, but the other trees nearby were not. The object hung there, motionless for the entire time.
My mother being a curious soul, wanted to get out of the car for a closer look. Me being a lil fella at the time, freaked. I wanted her to go get my
father, the ultimate protector of all young men... So, we took off up the road. Me having a fit, my mother trying to drive and watch this object
behind her at the same time.
Once we arrived at my grandmother's house we proceeded inside post haste, where we found one of my uncles, but not my father. We hastened him
outside, but alas, the object was no longer there.
1. The object was about the color of a basketball, but softer. Yellowish-orange.
2. It was no more than 30 to 40 yrds away. (The tree is still there, I think. I should look next time I go to visit.)
3. It was maybe 50 to 100 ft in the air.
4. It was completely silent.
5. It had NO distinguishing features at all.
6. It was completely still, in that it did not bob up and down or move back and forth. It did seem "Fuzzy" around the edges as though it were
Even now, my mother and I both clearly remember the incident with minor variations in our tales. We agree on size, shape, and location. She remembers
it as being more yellow than I do. /shrug.
I received a telescope for some juvenile birthday or other. A cousin of mine and I were outside breaking it in, and looking at the heavens. At some
point a very bright "meteor" streaked overhead. It seemed to be very low as it crested the horizon, and emitted a very bright white light. As it got
almost directly overhead, it split into 5 parts. The 5 smaller lights lined up in a straight line, and began to blink in various colors, much like it
seems starts do. The parts then disappeared over the opposite horizon. The whole thing only lasted a few seconds at best. Very strange...but an
interesting phenomena, none the less.
My father and I were leaving for the day. Him for work, me to school. As it happened I was riding to school with a friend, and he was going to drop me
off at my friend's house. As we went to get in his vehicle, there was...something floating in the clouds that had been the rain storm the night
before. It was small, metallic looking and very, very reflective. It bobbed in and out of the clouds for at least a couple of minutes as we watched,
before finally disappearin ginto the clouds and never returning. (Probably a weather balloon, but it was interesting.)
My father and I, an uncle and his children and wife were outside at my grandmothers, leaving after a visit. Someone noticed several lights flying in
formation in the sky. The were "starlike" in color, but changed positions rapidly and made interesting patterns until they flew out of sight. I
don't remember how many objects there were. More than three, less than ten. It was a nice light show, unusual in formation and presentation.
I lived WAY out in the country and not near any military or commercial air lines. No idea what they were. Only that they flew in trajectories I can
not attribute to any air craft that I know of at this time.
