Hi guys and girls, I have decided to share my sightings with anyone interested.
I have had many over the years, and yes some were just unusual lights in the sky, I will leave them out of this thread and focus on the more
Some of my friends think I have some kind of connection but I just put it down to my location and the amount of time I spend looking up.
I live in rural Australia and am blessed with beautiful clear skies. I'm 37 and have always been fascinated with astronomy.
I'm not looking for stars (I don't even understand what they are for) I'm more looking for similar accounts and ideas on what some of these things
My first sighting happened when I was around 14. A small group of friends and myself were playing a game of soccer when I noticed a cigar shaped
object at very high altitude, I brought this to the attention of the only person close to my location at that time.
We watched it for about 2 minutes until a cloud blocked it from our view.
To me it looked as if it was higher than jets would fly, making it around four times the size of a jumbo jet. It was metallic grey colour, it was
seamless and was the same at both ends.
My next sighting happened in the early 90's. I took my dog for a run at the family farm, something I did every week.
I was close to a small creek that was surrounded by lots of trees, when a bright metallic, fast moving object caught my eye.
The object was about the size of a basketball, maybe a little larger, it was metallic silver colour, was fairly close (within 50 feet) and was moving
very fast between the trees. It was clearly under intelligent control as it weaved in between the trees. It was gone within seconds but left me in
My next sighting and the most amazing one I've seen happened in June 2007.
I was returning home after some grocery shopping when a bright red/amber coloured light caught my attention out of the side _
At first I thought it was the headlight of a plane coming directly towards me, I thought it was going to crash.
So I stopped my car and rolled down the window, it was getting closer and closer but there was no engine sound.
I got out of my car and watched in complete awe as it flew just over the tree tops and came to a complete stop directly above me.
The object was a solid amber colour, no blinking or flickering, it was a sphere shape when it was above me but as it approached it was more flattened
(like a squashed tennis ball)
I couldn't believe it, it was like something out of a movie.
I was praying for another car to come so I get another witness to what I was seeing, but no one came.
All of a sudden the object seemed to get smaller, it appeared to travel directly up making it appear to get smaller.
That's when I remembered I had an old friend that lived not far from where I was.
Keeping my eye on the object (which now looked like a bright red star)
I got back in my car and drove as fast as I could to my mates house, I managed to keep track of its location until I got there.
I raced to his door and pounded frantically on it until he answered it.
My adrenaline was pumping so hard all I could say was "there's a UFO"
While pointing in the direction of it.
I explained to him what had just happened while we watched the red light sit stationary in the night sky.
He started to doubt me and think it was just a star after about 10 or 15 minutes of it just sitting there doing nothing. I told him I was sure it was
not a star and not to take his eyes from it.
Finally it did something. It rocked back and forth about four times (like a falling leaf) then it shot off horizontally across the sky in a kind of
skipping or pulsing movement at very high speed.
We both started jumping around screaming obscenities.
Two things that have really stuck with me about this sighting was at the time it was close to me and directly above me, I remember thinking how it
seemed strange that it all of a sudden got smaller, I think i may have experienced a very brief missing time thing.
The other thing was the 10 to 15 minute period it just sat in the sky, it was as if it was mimicking a star.
I was also left with an image in my mind of two typical greys sitting behind a control panel piloting the craft, I'm not sure if its just my
imagination or something more.
We reported that sighting.
Over the next week I believe I saw the same or similar objects on two occasions although far away.
Since then I have seen a few odd things but nothing that compares to the above sightings.
A few weeks ago I was star gazing when I saw what looked like a satellite (same speed and colour etc) but instead of one light source it had two side
by side, and was way past midnight so I don't think it could have been a satellite.
That's my history of personal sightings in a nut shell.
I'm looking forward to hearing feedback on my experiences.
