Since I'm here on ATS now (and loving it!), I might as well ask, to see if anyone can enlighten me a little.
2 years ago come January, me and OH was on our way home late evening. Sky was dark and we were driving. As we approached our exit, we saw two large
glowing (a kind of warm yellow) balls of light just above the three lines. I'm not good with distances, but it would have taken us about 3 minutes
to drive towards them (however, we were at our exit), and they were large... really large.
I'm not actually trying to figure out what the two lights were... I cared then, but not now.
Call them UHOs... unidentified hovering objects...
and no, I don't mean alien spaceships. I got no idea what they were, nor claim to have any idea what they were. Unidentified
.. that's all I
know, as I've never seen anything like it.
We were discussing them as we went over the overpass, and I told OH I wanted to check twitter coming home to see if anyone else had seen something in
And then we forgot! Forgot we'd seen the two lights! Between the overpass and home, it's only a 5 minute drive... and by the time we got home
we'd completely forgotten what we'd seen.
It wasn't until 2 months later, in March that year, again driving home, as I was looking up into the nightsky, that I remembered (this time seeing 3
planes align, and standing still for so long I figured they couldn't be planes anyway... maybe helicopters). I turned to OH and just said "Oh my
goodness - remember the huge balls of light we saw!?!"... and that triggered his memory too.
We've discussed them often since, but never as to what they were, simply the fact that we forgot! Considering it was something unusual, that neither
of us had seen before, I find it very odd that we both forgot in a 5 minute timespan after we saw them. Especially since we were discussing said
subject (at some point in those 5 minutes we must have stopped talking about what we saw and simply forgotten it)... Ok, so I can be a scatter brain
(too much happeing up there at the same time), and will often stick shopping bags, and other stuff that doesn't belong there, in the fridge... but
I'm pretty certain I'd be able to hold the thought of something I'd never seen before in my life, for 5 minutes, until I got the chance to check
twitter... and my OH is not a scatter brain at all.
So... what could make us forget?
If you don't belive that we saw what we saw, for the sake of an answer, feel free to pretend you believe
it, and let me know what could have caused us both to forget. Any ideas welcome, as I'm puzzled.
