I would like to share my sighting by copy/paste of an email sent to an interested party in January 1998. I am going to copy over just as I wrote it
(and clean one word up) along with my comments at the end of it...even if maybe I don't feel the same way now.
So here goes nothing:
1993 - My father and I were returning home from a town to the east of
where I live. About half-way through the 1 hour trip Dad began to
tell me about a TV movie he had seen the week before. It was some
kind of western thing, and I wasn't too particularly interested. I
sat back in the seat and chose something to focus on while Dad told
his story. The object I picked to stare at was (I assumed) Venus.
Other than its brilliance and size, there was no particular reason I
chose it to focus on while Dad continued to share. (It wasn't acting
"weird" or anything.)
At about 10:00 p.m. I noticed a plane moving across the western sky on
a north to south flight path. The plane had a characteristic red
blinking signal and was moving at what appeared was a normal altitude
and velocity; nothing unusual. Eventually the plane's path brought it
to a point that appeared to be just under Venus from my perspective. At
this point the plane stopped moving north to south and appeared to
stand still. This really didn't cause any alarm, or even extra
attention from me since I just figured the plane had either turned on
a westerly or easterly path which would make it appear to stand still
to a person viewing from the east. At the same time the red light
stopped blinking and was now a steady, normal "plane sized" beacon
just under Venus. Again, I really didn't think anything strange since
a plane heading toward you can appear to have a steady red light. Dad
was still talking and I was still kind of not listening.
Since I was trying hard to pay attention to Dad, it never really
dawned on me that the plane really wasn't showing any sign of nearing
us, or receding from us.
Okay, it's hard to explain what happened next because it all happened
REAL DAMNED FAST and alot of things were happening simultaneously.
"Venus" almost went out. At the same time, the plane (the constant red light)
swelled to at least three times its original diameter and at least twice its
brightness - basically it was as brilliant as "Venus" had been, only
red. The now severely dimmed "Venus" and the expanded "plane"
maintained their new status, and their same relative positions for
about 1 or 2 seconds and then the "plane" streaked across the
southwestern sky traversing from almost due west to just east of due
south in no more than 2 seconds. At the same time I screamed, "Dad,
stop the car! A UFO! Stop the car, Dad!"
Dad slammed on the brakes in the middle of the highway which caused us to slide;
ending up pointing to the south/southeast. I turned
back toward the west to see what the faux "Venus" was doing. At the
same time Dad was asking, "Where is it?" I'm frantically trying to
update Dad who is now slowly pulling off the highway onto a dirt
county road. "Venus" appears to rise straight up until it goes
completely out of sight.
So that’s my 'sighting' story. The only thing I can add is. Had it
not been for Dad’s boring story I would have never seen what I saw.
We were the only car on the road that night (which is pretty typical
for that area), but I contend that had ten more cars been traveling
with us NONE of them would have seen it happen (unless their dad was
telling them something really boring also). They might have seen the
flash across the sky (and thought, like you, that it was space junk,
or a meteorite), but they wouldn’t have seen the whole 30 minute
panorama I caught. (The "docking" type interaction between the two
objects; the "hovering" maneuver by the "plane" object; or the
vertical ascent maneuver by the "Venus" thingy). I DO NOT believe I
saw ET stuff, but I DO believe I saw experimental flight vehicles.
They exhibited controlled, maneuverable flight. They appeared to
interact. And they had flight characteristics FAR beyond what anyone
has told me about! I am a firm supporter of National Security issues
concerning experimental aircraft technology,
so not being told doesn’t bother me one bit. But I’ll tell you one
thing...we’ve got some kick-a$$ technology out there - this gal’s seen
