There's a thing, that scares me a lot nowadays. But let first tell me, how I came to investigate the UFO phenomenon.
I can't remember exactly the date when it happend, but some time during the 90ies, my father told me, that he saw on July 13th 1994 maybe 30 to 40
objects, that firstly flew in v-formation, then in w-formation in a heigth of approximately of 3 000 meters above the city where my father lives.
He told me that they were glowing, and that in now way they were birds or anything else common.
Later, he had several more sightings, that were much closer. One of the things he saw, was something you'd describe today as a kind of a drone. It was
of the size of a gully cover, and he saw it not more than 20 meters above his penthouse. That sighting happened, when he just was observing three
other UFOs high up in the sky.
Another time, he watched a trapezoidal object following a freight train crossing a bridge just a few hundert meters away.
My father is a very serious man, he worked for the auditing office of our city, and those people usually are very down-to-earth, as you can surely
imagine. I heard those stories of my father, and though I knew him as a very serious man, I had difficulties to believe what he told me. Because I
didn't see it with my own eyes. Except the one video he showed me, which he took when he filmed an airplane crossing the sky with his new camera, and
when suddenly there was a strange moving star passing the airplane. That video baffled me, because... it was impossible to see, if the moving light
passed above the airplane, or below. If it passed the plane above, it could be something like a meteorite or satellite. But I knew, there were few
things that would glow like a star and move below the altitude of an airplane...
That incident kept me wondering, and shortly after I started to read the books about UFOs, my father gave to me.
Then, one night in the late 90ies I had my very own first sighting. It was a summer's night, long past midnight, and I was sitting with a girl on a
seat at the river bank of our cities river.
We where sitting there, when suddenly I saw something very strange on the opposite side of the river. An object, that glew orange and violet, coming
from the right (a suburb called "Biwer") moving along the road to a suburb called "Pallien". I can't remember what I exactly thought, but it must have
been something in the way of: "what a strange car".
Then it came back. And when it came back, I knew, that it was no car, and that it was something not comparable with anything I've ever seen.
Because now it moved in an other altitude, and I knew, where it was moving then, there was no street. In fact, it was moving above the river itself.
Flying. And glowing orange and violet.
I can't remember if it made any sound, and even the form of it I can't remember, must have been to fast to get more details.
But it's colours, and the fact that it wasn't moving on the street, but above the river, got burned deep in mind.
The scary thing I was talking about in the beginning is, that for a long time I just forgot that sighting.
It came back on my mind, when some years ago I wished to see also an UFO. That was the day when I remembered, and was shaken to the bones, because I
just forgot it. I forgot something, that in fact can't be forgotten.
And I started wondering, how it came that I just forgot it. And I tried to remember, what I talked to that girl after the sighting. Ok, I can remember
getting trouble with her mother for bringing her home late in the morning. But I can't remember if I talked to her about the sighting or what else
happened after the sighting. And that scares me a lot. Wish I'd meet her once again to talk to her about that strange night.
In the recent years, I've read countless accounts of people who say they've seen something strange. And still I've got difficulties to believe what I
read. Until I remember once again my own sighting. And then... I feel speechless. Amazement. Excitement. Fright. Hope...
