Alright I am going to finally give up to the ATS community my own UFO experience, Its nuthing earth shattering or even very interesting as some of the
others, but it was an experience and one that has stuck with me over the years and is the main reason why Im into the UFO phenom.
It was in May 1989, I was at a friends house( who lived in the country), we were 18 years old and he had just been given his first vehicle. We were
outside in front of his dettached garage and I was helping him change one of his tires. It was a Ford Bronco and the tires were heavy. I had just
rolled off the old flat tire and was getting ready to help put the new tire on...I had paused a moment to wipe the sweat from my eyes, I had looked up
into the sky ( I think I was looking to see if any clouds were near as it was a very warm sunny day) when somehting caught my eye. I told my friend to
look up and see if he knew what it was because I surely didnt. What he and I saw was this: it was a red object, not glowing and somewhat in the shape
of a elongated arrowhead. I could see that it was rotating along its longest axis and I couldnt hear anything other than the sounds of the woods
around us. My friend looked up and then gave it a double look and said he didnt know what in the world it could be,. It wasnt fast moving or fast
rotating..but had a steady speed. It moved from north to south (approx). It was low enuff that if it had any markings on it such as an airplane might
have I would have seen them. i had the impression it was metallic, as it rotated the sun would very briefly glint off the object. Think of a arrowhead
thats been elongated and rotating around its longest axis. We watched the object for about 5 mins..even moving into a nearby clearing to keep it in
sight. After that time we lost it as it went beyond our sight due to the tree line. A number of years later ( after the Internet was invented gosh I
feel old now lol) I looked up UFOs and came across the MUFON website. I posted a sighting and was later contacted by my regions MUFON representtive
and gave an offical report to them. to his date ive never seen anything like it again.
SO there you have it ATS people..my own UFO sighting..albeit from the 80's. Its the reason Ive been so interested in UFOs, and Im sure many of you
have the same reasons. I know theres a lot of people that say pics/vids or it didnt happen. However all I can offer you is a promise that this is a
true and accurate ( as can be from it being in the 80's)recollection of my sighitng of a UFO..and I use UFO in the truest sense of the words,.,.,it
was flying and an object that I could NOT identify. I make no claim to it being actualy aliens I saw..all I can say is that the memory of it has never
left me and I often find myself looking into the skies to hopefully see it again someday..or something else entirely. Id be glad to hear of anyone
else experiences whether they be similar to this or not at all. thank you.
