I am a truck driver, currently unemployed. I've been one since late 2000.
Here is my UFO sighting.
It happened in daylight on I-8. I'm a little fuzzy on the exact location but can say it was either in west AZ or east CA. My best guess is AZ, east of
Yuma. When it happened, the last thing I thought about was documenting my location.
I was driving westbound, enjoying the desert scenery. I had the road to myself. It's not a heavily traveled interstate, at least in that area.
I looked to my right and saw some large objects. At first I thought they may be large birds. I kept an eye on them as I had the opportunity, and they
quickly got closer. That is when I realized that they weren't birds.
They (about 7) flew right in front of me. If I had to guess, it was well within a 1/2 mile and well below 600 feet. I can say that because I know how
the St Louis Arch looks up close and that is over 600 feet tall. They would have flown underneath the arch easily, like some idiot pilots have done in
They were small. Comparable or slightly smaller than F-16s, dark colored. There were no vertical surfaces. I can't say they were regularly shaped like
frisbees because I never saw their shape of the top or bottom.
They flew like rocks skipping on water, up and down, rinse and repeat. There was no military-like straight and level formation flying.
If I had to guess at what speed, I'd say 250-300 mph.
If I had a dashcam of some sort, I'd be famous now. Or if I had a vid, I'd be hearing "HOAX!" right about now. As it stands, you have to just take my
word for it.
I can definitely say that they were not concerned about being spotted. Should they have turned left as they approached, they would have crossed behind
me and I'd have never known they were there. They had to have seen me long before I saw them,
If they were US military, I also think it's safe to assume they violated Mexican airspace since I-8 runs close to the border. They didn't make any
ETA They made little or no noise. If they were jets, I'd have definitely heard them.
