Description of event/sighting: "My wife and I
were riding my motorcycle home and the night was dark
but clear. No other traffic; lonely country road. I happened
to look up and what I saw made me stop quickly and jerk
my helmet off. My wife did the same and we watched three
lights, red in color, not unusually bright but distinct,
a perfect triangle. The lights never varied in distance
to each other and were obviously at the tips of a huge
craft. The outline of the craft was indistinct, but the
mass blocked the stars and sky while it passed overhead.
It was totally silent. I shut off the engine and there
was no ambient noise at all."
was no more than about 300 feet up and moving at a crawl,
maybe 10 mph; it was massive and approximately 100 yards
(300 feet) in-between each light. The thing felt like
it weighed a million tons. I cannot describe that very
well in words but it had a 'feel' to it and I was fearful
that if it suddenly sat down on us, we would be a grease
spot on the pavement. I also recall thinking that I could
easily shoot it with a pistol, indeed with a strong bow
and arrow ! It was that low. I could see no markings or
distinct features underneath. It was too dark but the
red lights at the edges were quite distinct."
was asking my wife to tell me exactly what she was seeing
as it was happening, sort of a "reality check"
to make sure I was not experiencing some delusion or hallucination.
By the way, we were totally sober, drug free and awake.
We agreed on what had occurred after discussing the details
and assumed it was either a government project or more
likely a UFO."
the craft moved over us and went North from a southerly
direction, it performed an amazing feat! It rose slightly
in altitude and as it moved away and at a point of a mile
or so away, it stopped and turned up on its axis and cart
wheeled off into the eastern sky! The red lights performed
what might be called a "show" and the only way
I can describe it is to imagine the three lights, or the
craft, with one light pointing North and the other two
to its rear. It is flying "flat" and now the
two lights behind spin up so the one light formerly ahead
is now at the bottom. And then the three start spinning
off, rolling to the right, clockwise into the eastern
sky. I'll never forget that and neither will my (now ex)
wife. I knew in my gut that the thing was intelligently
piloted, had seen us all alone down there on the road
at night and showed off to us in a most amazing way."
have been interested in UFO's and such most of my life
and I was thrilled to have seen what may have been a craft
of extraterrestrial origin, whether controlled by human
assets or not, at the present time."
am struck by the massive size and the 'feel' of the thing.
It had the impression of a huge and incredibly heavy ship
but it didn't 'float' like a large balloon would. It,
although totally silent, moved with 'purpose', if you
know what I mean. It is more of a feeling than a tangible
so it's hard to relate. One cannot help but be in awe
of something the size of a battleship moving slowly over
your head, not a sound...and then performing a maneuver
that indicated purpose, whether to make sure we saw it
or to amuse themselves imagining our reaction, I just
don't know. But what is certain is that what we saw that
night will stay with us forever as proof that there is
much more out there than what normally meets the eye."
