Denouncer denounced by National UFO Report hotline

Here's the scoop: Last night I observed something on accident that spurred me to spend the entire night awake. I live in southern Florida. I've actually always assumed this area to be a no-no zone if there were any strange craft planning on avoiding detection. I live just miles from the coast, and therefore there's a lot of people, and a lot of eyes here.

Last night I turned my lights off and got ready to go to sleep. Laying in bed I noticed what seemed at the time to be embers drifting upwards from a fire. I thought it was strange for Two in the morning, and opened my blinds to take a look at who could possibly be having a good time at that time of night. To my surprise, they weren't orange, but a dim, dim white. My first thought was "We don't have fireflies here..." , so I went outside without anything more than a pair of briefs, and the mosquito bites I have speak wonders of the amount of time I spent outside trying to discredit my ludicrous conclusion.

These white lights, I literally estimate them to of been at least one hundred in numbers throughout the two hours spent observing, were baffling. They were only a quarter, no more than a half as luminous as the surrounding stars. They moved on a whim, at inconstant speeds. For the most part they seemed to emanate from one general area in the sky west of me. They mostly moved horizontally give or take the whimsical dips, would sometimes move vertically at very high rates of acceleration, and even interacted in a dance type manner between the two, as if piloted by children on a recces break during school.

Throughout this time I performed tasks to try and discredit what I was clearly seeing. I thought it possible to be a slight of the eye, as if when lightheaded, and removed my gaze after tracking ones single course. Every time I glanced back, the course remained the same, only farther down its path. The one critical factor was that they were only seen on the West end of my view of the sky.

So, fast forward to today, and I decided to report it to assess what anyone else saw. The man on the other end of the line destroyed any credibility in the number I chose to call. After hearing a fraction of my story he interrupted me to ask me if this was a prank call. Understandable. I told him it was nothing of the sort. He then told me no one else had seen anything like this, and began to passively denounce my stature. I shrugged it off, but he continued to talk to me as if reading from a script. Never once did he back down from his stance that although he could not explain what I saw, "There is a difference between a claim and a report. Do you understand that?"

Anyways, has anyone else experienced the extreme dickery emitted from the other end of that line? If not, 's'all good. Lemme have it with what you think I saw.

ALL THAT TIME you were in your whitey tighties and did not grab a picture or video of this awesome sight you were observing?? MAN OH MAN.....

It sounds really cool though...too bad there is nothing to show for it but a description of dancing lights. Bummer.

See if they come around tonight ....but this time have a video camera ready.

Your first mistake was picking up the phone too "report" anything and expecting a positive result. Exactly who do you think was on the other end of the line? Who do you think that person works for?

Yeah, I kind of assumed that while I was searching for a number, but I became frustrated and a bit antsy after twenty minutes of searches revealed no weather or news numbers. But hey, I've never reported anything, much less seen anything I couldn't somewhat discredit.

Believe me, I wanted to film this, but the camera on my phone is about as useful as throwing a bucket of paint on a canvas. Not to mention these lights were out shined by stars. I honestly figured I wasn't the only one to see and take interest in this. The thought definitely crossed my mind to scope out the sky tonight, and I definitely will. However, I know for a fact my phone isn't going to be able to capture what I saw. Hell, if I see anything I'll try though.

Anyways, I'm just here to ask a question and compare anyone's notes. I'm already kind of pissed of at myself for not doing something.

Don't beat yourself up too much about "not doing something". You actually did do something, it just wasn't what others may have wanted you to do for their benefit. You went out and watched them intently for yourself. It's not your job to miss the majority of an experience trying to find something to record with.

As for your original question, you reported it to the National UFO Report hotline? Ummm, My wife and I have reported some stuff to MUFON, and one of my wife's sightings (her 1st actually) got a call back from an investigator asking for more details. She was very nice to my wife and even invited her to come to some MUFON pizza party meet-up shin dig or something they do every month or so. If the beer was free we might have gone, but...

Years ago I reported my 1st sighting to Uriarte of MUFON after reading in the Sacramento News and Review that 1 day or so prior to my sighting a crop circle had shown up in Rockville, CA. He was asking for any info in regard to it. I thought, what the hell, I'll report my sighting just because of it's temporal and relatively physical proximity, not that it necessarily had anything to do with the CC. He didn't respond of course,

It's interesting that this guy was hostile to you. Maybe he thought you were making a false report or that you were trying to make a big deal out of what may be interpreted as chinese lanterns/illuminated balloons, and hence "wasting their time" or making fools of them? Hopefully more people will come out of the woodwork and corroborate what you saw. And good for you for actively trying to rule out other possibilities.

Don't beat yourself up over it. I'm always worried that I will also see something some day and I won't have a decent camera to capture it. I can't afford the luxury of a video camera right now so I just have my cell phone which is bad like yours. I tried taking a video with it of a helicopter flying by and I couldn't even see the helicopter in the video (and it was pretty close). Can't wait till cell phones come standard with hi-def video.

As for what you saw ...where at in Florida did you see it? I live in Naples so I must be pretty close. I'm always looking up but the most I ever see are satellites moving across the sky and I saw the space shuttle twice but other than that it seems pretty uneventful here. I can't explain what you kinda sounds like fireworks but you watched it for two hours so that seems out... but very interesting.

As they say, be in the experience. I just can't imagine a guy at a UFO hotline group being so hostile to someone reporting seeing UFOs. I didn't even know there were UFO hotlines... cool. Shows what I know.

On a side note: Are there any groups that compile UFO sightings/events in real time and display them on a map? I know MUFON was trying it, but that thing was busted and didn't seem very accurate or current.

I am confused....did you call NUFORC?
If you did, and that was who was rude to you....I TOTALLY understand. I called NUFORC several years ago and the guy was a total jerk! Despite the fact there was a corroborating account less than an hour later of a similar craft in my area called in as well.
Whatever, I try not to be to bummed about it....I just figure he deals with a lot of nut jobs.
However! It keeps me from calling back, that's for sure. I have had other sightings since then, 2 with photos but I haven't the nerve to call the guy again!

Yes, it was nuforc! I have a hunch we may have talked to the same person. Given those facts he may be the sole or one of few respondents and grow quite tired of the task, or even be quite subjected to prank calls. Regardless, I've enough sense to avoid them as well.

I live in Lake Worth Florida, in Palm Beach county. and it happened West/North-West of I-95. North-West-West if you will.

Thanks Flux! That's pretty much how I felt about it myself. I'll have to check mufon out soon. If I find out anything new I'll post it to this thread!.

I also spoke with MUFON about my sighting and they were wonderful!
Not only did I meet with my state director, I also met with the assistant state director, and they kept in contact with me for some time!
They were wonderful and had a great investigatory spirit!

WTH?? This is starting to sound like a Monty Python routine! You'd think that an organization set up specifically for taking UFO reports would be a little more sanguine about taking a UFO report.

By the way, what exactly is the difference between a claim and a report? Is there something in the wording of how you describe your sighting that distinguishes one from the other?

Reply to ClapOnKyle:

Your call-ee is -known- by those of us whov been following ufos for a long while, as the experience you described.. The experience you described when you called, I had one like it too, some years back. I made a thread about it on some totally other forum/website.
I vaguely though, recall Him talking on, I think, Coast To Coast one night, of having a meeting with some high level spooks (Probably 'Ron' or other Aviaries, or DIA) (My specualate though) who basically told him he was onto the right actions and views (and this would help them too, something like that.....)
I'm trying to be carefull and cooth don'tcha know.
