Second experience, circa 1999.
At this time I was studying for my master's and living at home with my parents to save money. Since I also worked full time, I scheduled my classes
for Tuesday and Thursday and spent all day there, from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm. Made for long days, but what the heck. I was young.
Anyway, I was driving home later than usual one Thursday night. My guess is it was about 2:30 am...we'd had a study session that went longer than
expected. Once again, I was the lone car on the road. This time, however, I wasn't star gazing. I was singing along to the radio, window down,
trying to keep myself awake.
The road I was on can, at best, be described as a two-lane country highway. In other words, it went through the middle of nowhere. There was one
day, when driving on the road, I came around a curve and saw the biggest bird I've ever seen in my life in the road, eating roadkill. The bird took
off and I swear, its wingspan was greater than the width of my Honda Civic. But that's another story.
So I come to the final intersection, which my road ends at this intersection. I can either turn left or right, but I cannot go straight. Directly
ahead is a house, approx. 100 yards from the road. Behind this house is a small mountain (or very large hill).
I stopped at the intersection, look both ways, then happen to glance up. That's when I saw the second UFO.
It was over the mountain, and was HUGE. All I could see was a dark mass, vaguely triangular or wedge shaped. On the left side of the object (my
right) were three or four lights. The lights were round and yellowish in color; they did not waiver, blink, or move.
As I sat there, thunderstruck, I noticed the far light fade out, and a new light on the other side fade in. This continued for the next fifteen
minutes (I kept watch on the clock). I did not get the sense that the mass was rotating or moving at all, just that the lights were fading out and
fading in around the circumference of the thing.
Eventually, I left and went home, as I was very sleepy and mentally bushed. Not once did I feel any fear or threat from the object, even though it
was close and definitely strange. I have no idea how long it remained there, hovering over the mountain. However, I have two close friends who both
live near that area and both report seeing something very similar (although at different occassions).
So there they are, ATS. My two weird claims to fame.
