In 1977-78 my folks had quite an experience. They were driving at night along a fairly well traveled road in western Mass., there was cars in front of
them and a motorcycle behind them. Along the road was woods and clearings were the power lines ran adjacent to the road. They were driving for a
while and my father was noticing lights following in these "paths" where the power lines were. He didn't think much of it until it became clear
that either a plane was very low or something strange was going on. They pulled over, as well as the cycle and some other cars. So at this point they
weren't the only people to question these unusual lights.
As they watched the lights come closer to the road, they could see that it was saucer, circular in shape with bright lights along and underneath. It
traveled very low to the treeline and passed over them and the other people pulled off to the side. My father said that it was so low that if he was
on top of the car he could touch it.
No noise, no interference of there car, just this huge object passing over them.
After that my father, like myself, were hooked on what they couldn't explain. I didn't feel the story the told until I had my own experience.
February 1-2, 2004 I we had finished watching the SuperBowl , and had to drive north to get to school. So it was very early in the morning around 1
driving I95 N toward Houlton, ME. Most of this road passes through townships and is strait and very heavily wooded section of interstate. I don't
remember seeing any cars the whole time, which is how it is there. So about a hour into our trip we noticed a light down one of the many 3-5mile long
stretch of road. We both saw it for miles, coming slowing closer to it over time. Our first thoughts was it was a planet or plane. It seemed almost
stationary, or moving slowly away from us enough that it took miles to reach this light just above the treeline. I'm in the passenger seat telling my
friend to slow down as we come closer to it. The light was white, very bright, but strangely did not blind our eyes.
As we came closer, you could almost make out a shape, but very black against the clear night sky. We slowed to a crawl, as we passed. I told my friend
to stop, but he was freaking out. As we passed I could make out that it was a triangle, one beam in the front tip, nothing underneath , and 3 lights
behind it. The rear light were slowly pulsating , each one at a different time, each one from red, yellow, to green. I could only describe the
triangle like the shape of the Star Trek symbol with the outer points facing inward. With the distance from the road down an embankment to the trees,
30 feet or so, just above the trees (30 foot) I would estimate it at 40-50 feet in width and 20-30 deep, couldn't judge the thickness because it was
so had to make out it being black.
So that's my experience. I can honestly tell you what it wasn't, but what it was still baffles me. The feeling of the unknown and its possibilities
it what brought me to this site.
