The Following Events Ocurred 10/24/2011
I live on the coast of northern California. I have an old friend named Carl, who has been flying planes for the majority of his life. He's a really
cool person, who takes photographs of the ocean and tundra almost every day. He is the straight-shooter type of person, and he would not lie to me
about this recent experience.
I'd like to start by saying -
A) This sighting was of three crafts. Not a TR3B.
B) Any questions you have, please ask them, as he asked me to put the word out about his experience in hopes of finding out more information.
Carl lives maybe 7-10 miles from town up a small residential road. His house sits upon a hill and overlooks a valley, leading to the ocean, pretty
area, very few trees in his area.
"Well I was sitting around, reading a book after a long day taking pictures. When I get a knock on the door. It's my neighbor, and he's as white as a
ghost. He asks me,
'Have you seen the balls?'
I give him a weird look until he eventually drags me outside. What I saw next amazed me. I have been flying for years and never a sight like this: I
told my son and wife to get outside. They were like no other aircraft.
There were three orange glowing spheres. They were large, but I could not tell how large. This was just after the sun had set, so it was also
difficult to judge height. I'd say initially 3,000 feet - very close. I stood there and watched them in awe, they were in the perfect shape of a
triangle. And best yet they made absolutely no sound."
However, Carl tells me, it was the way that they moved which really impressed him. Judging by the way he was waving his hands when explaining their
"take-off", I'd say they shot off in a 75 degree angle. He said the crafts were operating without the restriction of Earth's gravity.
(If anyone can help me with a diagram, that would be great. They moved diagonally to the upper right, and then diagonally to the upper left. Forming
They floated effortlessly at a constant speed, but they did not disappear. They remained in the night sky, mimicking stars for the next three hours.
He would walk out the house every once and a while, and still see them. In fact I did not ask him if he ever saw them disappear.
So this is the story, I'm publishing on ATS in order to get it down on the books. If you have any interest in this sighting or would like to share
your similar experiences - Please ask questions or share stories. Everything you ask will be relayed to Carl. He asked me to do this in hopes of
finding more information. So hopefully this goes some where.
