This is a post I entered on another thread, but I'll post it again here just for you. :-)
Back in the early 1970's I looked out the window one night and saw a huge white light in the sky, about the size of a dime if you held it up to the
sky. It was really bright. You could tell it wasn't still; it was kind of hovering. As I stood watching it trying to figure out what it was there
were 5 or 6 smaller objects that came out of the bottom of the large craft and took off into space! I just stood there with my mouth open. The large
object stayed in the same location until I finally got tired of standing there, and went back to the living room. I grew up in the country, so there
were no street lights blocking out the night sky.
I continued to see UFOs in the sky after that. They would go in crazy directions, stop, zigzag, and take off from a dead stop to being gone from view
in a split second! All these just appeared as a bright round light from a distance, but could have been a different shape up close. Some appeared to
flash different colors.
My close encounter was went I was coming home one night after working second shift. I came to this fast food restaurant and remember looking at my
watch to see if I had time to go through the drive-through before they closed. It was 10:40 p.m., and they closed at 11:00 p.m. So I pulled into the
drive-through lane with 3 cars ahead of me and another behind me. Once I placed my order I pulled up with 2 cars still ahead of me at the serving
_ Then I saw something flashing in the sky. I kept watching it, and it got closer, and closer. It was flashing orange/red and green lights. As
it approached even closer I could see it was oblong-shaped like a cigar, and flipping end over end. One end had the orange/red light glowing from it,
and the other end had the green light. This object made absolutely no noise at all! As it approached just above the tree tops across the road it
stopped flipping, and just glided through the air. It came down extremely low, just over the top of the building, and shot down a bright beam that
went right beside my car in the parking lot! I noticed no one else seemed to be looking at it so I stuck my head all the way out my window and
hollered at the car behind me, "What the hell is that thing?!!" I was so scared I was shaking! No one answered, and actually, everyone seemed to be
suspended in time, no one was moving at all! After the light beam passed my car it started slowly flipping again, and then took off into the sky, and
was gone in the blink of an eye!
The strange thing that confused me most about this encounter was the fact I lost 20 minutes from the time I saw the UFO until it took off again, which
only seemed like maybe 2 or 3 minutes, and the fact that no one else seemed to even notice it, like they were all statues, not moving at all! I still
haven't figured this out, but I heard of others losing time when they saw UFOs, and it turned out they were abducted! I won't go that far, but if I
was, I don't want to remember it!
