I just read a thread about the Star Wars Project and it reminded me of my first (of two) UFO sightings. I've suspected for some time that this one
might have been early Star Wars testing so I thought I'd recount it here and see if anyone can throw any light on it.
Although the Star Wars Project was only announced by President Reagan in 1983 my sighting took place in 1974 or 75 and I was 10 or 11 at the time.
I'd been somewhere with my parents and we pulled up outside the house. I got out of the car and looked up. I've always had an interest in astronomy
and even now come close to walking into things if it's a clear night.
This was a particularly clear night - absolutely crystal - and light pollution wasn't as big an issue as it is now.
Almost directly above my head (I lived at latitude 51 degrees North) was a very thin brilliant red line like a laser. It was about a 1/4 of an inch
long just sitting there ending abruptly at each end going from nowhere to nowhere! I watched it for about five minutes but got very cold so I went
indoors. I went outside again after a few minutes and it was still there in exactly the same place. I watched it for about another 5 minutes and went
in again. Unfortunately this time when I went back out it had gone. Of course, if I saw something like that now, I'd stare at it until it went. I'll
never know if it moved off or just disappeared.
My other UFO sighting was a very common orb which I've described in a previous thread, this type though seems less common, so my question is this -
have there been other sightings like this that you know of and/ or does my Star Wars hypothesis stack up?
