Couldn't think of a better title.I started this thread to describe my experience in seeing a U.F.O back in my youth. This is the first time I tell
anyone about what I saw and I'm still riddled with questions about it. Maybe someone here can give me an insight as to what is. So without further
ado, here it is.
It happened back when I was maybe 12- 13 years old. This was back in 2002-2003. I remember it was a summer day, not cold but not very hot. The weather
was cloudy, but not dark like it was going to rain. I was outside on our deck with my mom, our neighbor and her daughter just having a good laugh. We
were sitting down at the table having tea with a few snacks. I remember seeing an object almost appearing out of nowhere, hovering about 500 meters
away and 500 meters off the ground. It just hovered there, without a single noise just as if it was floating in the air. About 2 minutes of us
watching it in disbelief, it literally zipped away to about 2-3 km away and even higher off the ground. It was almost instantaneous. I knew it wasn't
man made because we had no aircraft that can move that fast! After about 2 minutes, it moved even further away, barely visible and just hanging below
the cloud line. Again, it was instantaneous and after 2 minutes, disappears out of sight. The whole time we just stood there watching this object
which lasted about 6-8 minutes. We were all in disbelief even after it ha left. To this day we still don't know what we saw, nor do we talk about it.
This is what basically got me interested in astronomy and space.
The object in particular was a disc shaped object that peeked with a dome on top. It had 5 smaller half spheres on the bottom of the craft. The dome
was a dark silver colour, couldn't see through it and the craft itself was silver as well, though not as dark. The object was not spinning nor were
the half spheres on the bottom. It just floated there, no sound nothing.
Like I said, I don't know what it was. All I know is it wasn't man-made. Maybe someone here can enlighten me.
