Rectangular UFO Viewed Up Close

Sighting was approx. July 1988 100km to the North East of Halifax Nova Scotia Canada at 12-1AM.
I and three other individuals noticed a large object emitting light travelling directly over our vehicle.
The object was rectangular and approx. 200 feet by 100 feet in size. It was so close overhead and so bright that if caused a glare on the windshield. It was maybe 200 feet above us, maybe closer.
The entire underneath was illuminated by what looked like an electrical glow. Colours were blue, green and some orange in a swirling pattern.
We stopped the car as the object travelled from the North to the South. It drifted slowly (maybe 50km/h) on a clear moonless/windless summer night making no noise, and was still drifting when we got out of the car.
We were standing outside looking at it as it came to a stop maybe .25km from us. I had a pretty good look at it and can say for certain it was about 20 feet think and black or very dark in color. It was a dark night but the lights underneath the object were fairly bright.
After about 3 or 4 minutes the object then “charged” up glowing bright and then shot off to the South West at an incredible speed. It reached the horizon in approx. 1 second and disappeared into a dot of light.
I know of at least 2 other sightings of this object by people I know including a daylight sighting where the object was a few hundred feet overhead. In that incident the observer saw a smaller rectangle that was red and silver checkerboard color.

Sighting was in Nova Scotia approximately here

Grandfather‘s Encounter

I have a weird one.
My grandfather was a bomber pilot in the
infamous 509th bomb group in Roswell New Mexico.
My Mom and I stayed in my grandfather’s house
in El Paso Texas from about 1971 on .My very first memory
is my ONLY experience and it’s one that sounds very much like an abduction.
I was about 3-4 years old and my bedroom lit up
with a blue light and what looked like miniature cartoon characters
we’re moving about my room. I can still visualize it somewhat.
It’s the only memory I have besides the final being back in my bed with
giant black almond eyes right up against my forehead and a loud
rushing sound. I also remember a large white head attached to the black eyes.That was it..From elementary on I was interested in Near Death Experiences for some reason and in about 4th grade clearly remember checking out books by Dr Raymond Moody on NDE’s along with UFO books.
I have been fascinated with both subjects ever since although I didnt realize my first memory was maybe UFO related until much later in life.
My grandfather was a career Air Force pilot and ended up in retiring a Lt Col . He was my father figure and having just retired we spent most of my youth together.
I would ask him all the time about UFO’s and he would tell me there was nothing to it. As a matter of fact I asked for 38 years and he always said
the same thing.Then in 2012 at 88 years old and about a year before he died with health failing I asked one more time.This time he said “Well do you really want to know?” My brother was there and looked as shocked as i did hearing this, but we both said YES !!
Instead of saying anything
I asked again, Are some UFO’s alien craft ? I had learned to phrase it
more correctly because hardcore officers don’t give up anything without the question being perfect . (Col John B Alexander cones to mind) But instead of the usual dismissals this time he nodded a very solemn
“YES”. We were floored because he was quite serious .
That’s it..
All my life I have looked up hoping to see something but have never seen
ANYTHING I couldn’t disprove to my own liking.
Weird life never seeing anything except my first memory perhaps being an odd encounter,but I believed something is visiting .
I believe you Martin and your hot tub UFO.
But few believe this type of story so I never relay it.
My grandfather was real he can be easily verified because he’s the pilot
who’s plane accidentally dropped a hydrogen bomb near Albuquerque in the mid 1950’s .Lt Col Richard J Meyer (although he was Captain Meyer in the 50’s)

UFO Over Waterloo, Ontario Canada Dec. 7th 2016

See the video I captured here :

This sighting took place in Waterloo Ontario, 100 km west of Toronto. On December 7th 2016, at around 5 pm. I was at work and I stepped outside for a cigarette break, and I was listening to PODCAST UFO! I’m not joking… I listen to the show all the time at work and am very into the study of the Phenomenon.
It was close to dusk, just going into the civil twilight period which is the brightest part of twilight. The sun was down, but it was still very light out, just around the time the street lamps come on. I had a great view of the area because my workplace is on the top of a hill, which gave me an excellent view of the southern sky that night.
I was looking south and immediately noticed a very bright light low in the sky, not far above the horizon. I thought this was a strange place for such a bright light and it seemed to be very far away but still really bright. It was brighter than Venus or other planets I had seen in the skies many times before at that time of day. It was much brighter than satellites and the ISS, and I became very puzzled by its peculiar features. I was amazed to see it pulse on and off. It was a quick strobing that flashed brightly about three times then two or three dimmer flashes all in about half a second then no flashing for a second then it repeated. It was intense and very bright then would completely fade. It continued to pulse and then I noticed it was moving. It was at this point I quickly grabbed my phone and starting recording video. This light seemed really weird to me because I had seen so many satellites before and never saw I bright light pulse on and off. I thought it was something like the ISS space station spinning or reflections off of a spinning satellite, but it was pulsing quickly like a strobe light then off then strobing again. I could see other planes in the sky and their lights were not bright and you could see a solid outline of a plane clearly against the sky. In the video there are 1 or 2 planes at low altitudes but they are not even detected by the camera.
The strobing like from the object did seem a bit like aviation lights that strobe but after looking into it I have not found any aircraft that have bright white intense strobing white lights. This flashed brightly when it was low on the horizon, coming towards me and also flashed bright when it was above me. All the air craft I have seen only are bright from one direction, either head on or under the craft, not both, and never white.
Compared to the light I was looking at, it was completely different than the planes in the sky. When the light stopped pulsing, there was nothing there in the sky that was visible. There was no solid dark shape that should have been visible. It seemed like it was at a very high altitude. I’m guessing at the max flight ceiling or higher. I have never seen anything like this in the sky before and it was very interesting to watch.
I reported the sighting to MUFON and NUFORC. A MUFON investigator followed up via email and determined it was a helicopter because he did a quick search and found an airport in the area. The problem with his conclusion was that the light wasn’t anywhere near the airport. It was much farther to the southwest. I know this because I live right beside the airport and have been seeing all the lights and traffic that come through there for years. There is no way this was a helicopter because helicopters don’t fly over the city at high altitudes. The small older helicopters only fly short routes over the country and the only other helicopter you see is the rescue or emergency craft that travels to Toronto to the hospital. Helicopters do not have bright pulsating or strobing bright white lights that fly at super high altitudes. Every helicopter I have seen flying I have heard even at a distance.
I have been outside at work on break, looking at the great view from the top of the hill, many, many times before, and have seen lots of satellites, planes and helicopters. All of which are highly recognizable and mundane. What I saw December 7th was very strange and remains unexplained as far as I am concerned.
In the Video I shot of the craft on Youtube I point out that it seemed to “zig – zag” in a quick weird manner as it was over head and have stabilized footage of it moving. But after re shooting video of a plane in the same position a few weeks later, I realized this was an anomaly cause by slighting moving the camera or phone while zooming.
Even though I realized it didn’t move in the “zig zag” manner, this pulsing UFO is something very strange, and is not a helicopter, plane and I don’t think it’s the disco ball satellite either.
After watching the video again, it seems to change speed and almost pause at the 1:20 mark. A satellite moves quickly across the sky in a very steady and straight course.

I-57 UFO Sighting 2006

I was one of those people that didn’t believe in ufo sightings and I especially didn’t believe when people said they were abducted. I am also fearful of coming forward – fearing people would call us liars. But after reading through the posts and listening to the podcasts I feel comfortable enough to tell what we saw. I am sorry I don’t have a pic or exact dates. Here is what happened to my husband and I. We were traveling from Chicago to Kentucky where we recently built a log home. Due to changes in our work schedules we decided to take long weekends to visit our new home which we were in the processing of furnishing. We left Chicago around 6:00 pm. We rarely stop to eat when we take these trips but this time we ran into a McDonalds around 7:00 pm and grabbed a quick bite. We had the dog in the truck so we didn’t want to leave him in there even though it wasn’t hot and the windows were open. We gassed up and got back on I-57. It was a late summer / early fall and we still had a couple hours of daylight. We estimated arriving at our cabin around 3:00 am. It was around 2:00 am and I was driving. It was pitch black. Black in front and black behind us. There was absolutely no one on the road – not even a semi. We were more worried about a deer jumping in front of us so I was going just under the speed limit. We had our dog Austin in the back. He usually hangs right behind the driver’s seat. I heard him moving around and turned my head to see what was going on. He was now behind the passenger seat and looking at the largest thing we had ever seen in our lives. It was oval and brightly illuminated. It had to be the size of a football field. My husband and I were shocked. He thought it might be military. I knew this nothing military. It followed us for miles. I had a new phone. It was not a smart phone and I tried desperately to call 911. We could not get a dial tone. We both tried getting it to take a pic but it was frozen. It was new so I thought maybe I was doing something wrong. This thing was so close to the ground and it was so bright. There were no windows or markings. I would say it followed us for 20 minutes if not longer. When we came to a section where we went left it stay along the other road and went to the right maybe that was to St. Louis – not sure. We were relieved. We talked about stopping and decided to keep going. When we got to the cabin we talked about what to do and we decided to keep this to ourselves because who was going to believe us. No pics or proof – just our word.

Bright disappearing UAO

10/7/14 10:30pm, Mebane NC

My son went for a bike ride up the road, he noticed what he thought was a bright star to the west northwest about 40 deg high stopped and looked at it because he thought it to bright and large for a star. it was not moving and as he watched it just faded out and disappeared.

He ran in the house all excited to tell me, so of coarse I ran outside and hung out for a while, nada.
The Moon was southeast and really bright, sky was clear with some high altitude ice clouds I was making sure that he didn’t see a star or planet go behind the clouds. he was sure that was not the case and told me it was large and really bright and that he saw it freakin disappear.

Till next time

Large White Cylinder, Daytime

Large White Cylinder, Daytime

Image rendition from article linked below

Yesterday I was out putting out grass seed, no power since Friday morning due to a nasty ice storm.
sky was a beautiful clear blue, I guess it was about 3pm and I just happened to look east above the trees saw what I thought was a large Airliner many miles away.
it looked like a long white cylinder. then I notice it had a dark area in the middle and couldn’t see wings or a tail fin. I yelled at my son who was up on the deck to look, he couldn’t find it so i ran up to him because it had started to got through the very top of the trees, and I was pointing at where it should be, winter here so just thin branches and poof it was gone!
it was moving north at about the speed of a high altitude airplane so I should have been able to watch it for several more minutes but it was just gone. that’s when I realized that I just had another daytime sighting. I heard nothing, the first thing that made me notice it was that it was very bright and had no contrail. my impression is that it was longer than a large airliner and only 10k to 20k in altitude. I watched it move at a slow steady speed horizontally for about 5 to 7 seconds before I said anything to my son.
He and I both found it odd that he couldn’t see it.

Found this the other day, guy seems to have seen same object I saw in March: http://www.ufocasebook.com/2014/ufo-sighting-in-old-lyme-connecticut.html

CEll

When my daughter was a teenager and sleeping in a room adjacent to mine, one night I suddenly awoke and noticed that the power had gone out, I stepped into the hall and my daughter burst out of her room and said: “Did you see that”, I said “no but the power just went out and came back on” she told me she woke up and then looked out the window and saw a super bright light that lit the yard like daylight fly south just over the house really fast. It happened as the power went out, and she didn’t know why she looked out the window. She is now 27 and is back at home temporarily with my two grand daughters, last year, the the older one (turns 5 today) came to me one morning and said: “Papa last night I went up in the air with my friends and I could see our house from up in the sky” I was floored! She doesn’t watch anything on TV were she could ever get that idea never the less that concept for a 4 year old she was very matter of fact about it. I didn’t question her about it because I was shocked and didn’t know what to do. My wife instructed me not to tell our daughter, and you married guys you know if Mama ain’t happy, nobody is happy.

Bright Light Flared then Zipped off Horizontally

I live in NC between Durham and Burlington last November I was out on the deck late after work, you guessed it smoking a cig. I have an acre and the back of my house faces due North and have lots of trees. there’s a mile of woods with no homes behind my house. I was only out there for a couple minutes and was facing east when I saw a light out of the corner of my eye to my left when I realized that light wasn’t there a minute ago I turned in time to watch it move horizontally about 20 deg from about NNE in a straight line moving East then fade out quickly. it was about a third of the size of the Moon and I didn’t hear anything. It was not a meteor or shooting star and had no tail it was a pure white sphere, didn’t get bigger or smaller, was very bright and was only about 15 deg above the ground seemed to me to be about 1 to 3 miles away, but who knows depending on the size.
I’ve seen zillions of satellites, Iridium flashes and the Iss, it was gone in two seconds so it wasn’t one of those. that’s the last thing that I have seen that I could not Identify.

Before the Phoenix Incident

“Im 48 and have had a lifetime of sightings and other things. will write more soon. but here’s a nice one,
Sometime in the 90’s MY wife and I and a friend watched a giant v shaped group of pale white light past overhead in Miami Fl then we saw another of the same a few seconds later moving in the same direction *due west*
just like the Phoenix object. I’m positive it was before 95′ they were very high up, it was still daylight out but i could not tell if it was one large object.
At the time I felt that it was.
this has not been reported anywhere before. I called Homestead Air force tower and was told it might have been a refueling operation.
lol! you couldn’t cover this thing with a wide open newspaper at arms length!
Hurricane Andrew tore up Homestead Air force base in late 92 so I think it was 91 to 93 when it happened.
I got photo’s of orange fireballs in 95 and reported that to Mary Margaret of Mufon at that time and she got negatives and photos. and there’s more.

Happened in Botswana in the Okavango Delta

This incident has been reported to MUFON and I spoke to a MUFON representative. The MUFON rep/investigator after figuring distance and other factors determined the object  had to be the size of a 737 plane.
Unfortunately I have no video no photos. There is a reason for this. Two years ago I was in Botswana Africa in the Okavango Delta staying in a small water/land based camp. Its the middle of nowhere. There is nothing there but wetlands and wild life.
I was walked back to my tent around 8:30 PM by staff. The night is dangerous because of wild animals so I had to be walked back. The sky was totally clear and beautiful because of the clear air. After getting back I decided to enjoy the night sky. I could hear monkeys and baboons calling. I also could hear hippos moving around in the water. Looking at the sky I had a sudden thought,  “what if I saw a UFO right now?” I was surprised because though I have always been interested in the subject I had absolutely no reason to have such a thought. However, approx 5 minutes later I noticed something out of sorts. It was a moving light. It was oval shaped and yellow-white in color. It pulsed. Every 3 seconds it pulsed. I determined it was no known object but I kept trying to make sense out of it. The object moved in a descending manner from right to left. It then suddenly make a sharp 90 degree turn down to the delta. This startled me as I realized it was an unusual maneuver for whatever the heck it was. I then thought it was gone until approximately 5 seconds later there was burst of brilliant light in the tree tops directly across my tent. It was approx 1000 feet out in a direct line from my tent to the tree tops. It was behind the trees and I could not see the shape nor the size because of the incredible darkness surrounding me. There is nothing there at night. No boats, no planes, nothing. The night in the Delta belongs to the animals living there. The camp is small, no more than 8 tents that are well spaced from one another. Everyone retires early to bed. Whatever the object was it was silent and remained in the tree top. Ever 3 seconds a strong, brilliant light pulsed.
The light was like a giant flashlight lighting up the trees horizontally. The light did not shine vertically.
I could feel the hair on my arms standing straight up as I had another weird thought pop into my head. I thought, “it’s here because of me”. I then laughed as I thought, “where the hell did that come from?”
Looking at the trees I could not see the actual object. There was no sound. I then realized something unusual. All the animals meaning the hippos, monkeys, etc. were dead quiet. The delta became quiet. Its during the night that animals come out and can be loud. This time it was quiet.  Furthermore I felt dopey, like I could not think clearly. My camera was 10 feet away from me but I could not react nor think to get it. I watched this every 3 second pulsing white light for approx 8 minutes. I kept trying to figure things out but couldn’t think clearly.
After approx 8 minutes I felt compelled to go to bed and found as I lay down the light to still be there. I immediately fell asleep which is highly out of the ordinary for me. I remember thinking “its still there. I have to sleep”.
The next morning I took a photo of the trees where this object was. I was incredulous as I could believe or understand my behavior. I could not understand how I could immediately go to sleep with an unknown object outside my tent in the trees. I could not understand why I did not move to get my camera or even my phone.
The behavior I had exhibited the previous night was out of character for me.
I asked the people at breakfast, “did anyone see an unidentifiable light last night?” I got strange looks as people said “no”. I was asked to explain but felt uncomfortable and stopped.
As I left Botswana a few days later I got a nagging feeling of there being something more but I could not grasp it. This feeling stayed with me until I got an MRI.
I received MRI’s before which for me is not unusual. I never had a problem with them.
During the MRI (which emits different sounds) there was one sound which set me into a dead state of panic. I had a flashback to a memory. I want to say I have always been a skeptic of the alien abduction phenomena. Except for Travis Walton I have not read about abductions and was wary of people claiming to have been abducted.
In the flashback I saw myself on a table. At the foot of the table were some beings. They were not directly at the foot rather they were standing at a back wall. I could only see them partially as the table was raised. I could not move my arms or legs. I could not get up from the table. I could only partially move my head. My head was sorta held in place by a device from the ears up. I was screaming, yelling, “no, no please don’t do this” over and over. I screamed, “please let me go”.
I got a sudden feeling of immense pressure in my head. Behind me and on either side of the table were two other beings. They were different from the others in that they were taller and had a different color.
The shorter ones, though I could see only part of their head I knew were approx 3 and a half-4 ft tall while the other guys manipulating the thing on my head were taller, approx 5 ft or more. These guys were dark brown while the shorter ones were grey.
During the panic I did what I could to stay focused on the here and now. As I came out of the tube there was a large white light on above my head. I almost became panicked again.
After this I had sudden images pop into my head of the taller beings. At the time I dismissed them. I wish now I had not since I can no longer exact details of how they looked. I do know their heads were like ours but they had no ears and had flat facial features. I have not read about alien or alien types.
The MUFON guy sent me an abduction questionnaire. I was surprised by many of my positive responses. This in turn caused me to reflect on prior partial memories. I try to be careful of these memories because I understand how all to easy it is to fill in what you cannot fully recall.
I understand now that this was not my first time. Needless to say I will listen openly when someone claims to have been abducted. I will not be as dismissive as I have been before.
After watching MRI videos on YouTube I finally found the specific sound I heard in the MRI tube that caused the flashback.
I know this specific sound was similar enough to have caused the flashback. I am sure the sound was related to the whatever the device was that was on my head.
One thing about the alien beings that stood out for me was the impression I got from them that is, not at all one of hostility but rather one of strict clinical detachment.
Salinas, California Diamond-Shaped UFO

Salinas, California Diamond-Shaped UFO

This event occurred in 2011, November 23rd around 7:15pm (Salinas, CA.) It was already dark.

I had just parked and exited my car and was walking towards my house when I looked across our residential street.

There, floating about 50 feet or so above a neighbor’s house directly across the street from me, was a large, diamond shaped object with a horizontal line through the middle and lights in at least two of the corners.

It appeared to be about the size of a standard two car garage or maybe larger, it was hard to tell. It was space grey in color, self illuminated and made no sound whatsoever. I stared at it for about 5-10 seconds or even more trying to understand what it was. I was not frightened and I may have even mentally sent a greeting but there was no reaction or response from the object that I can recall.

Here’s the really “strange” part:

I had my iPhone with me and decided I should try and get a picture or video of this thing…but then I had the thought that there wasn’t time, and that the picture wouldn’t come out because it was too dark and so I put my phone away. That decision or thought not to try doesn’t make much sense given how close it was. I should have at least tried and I probably stood a fair chance of capturing something in the image. I can’t tell you why I made that decision. Was it my own?

Looking back, the whole experience has a dream like quality to it….it doesn’t feel like a standard memory – yet I know it happened just as I am describing it to you. It was absolutly “real” and it is too bad no one else was with me at the time to verify.

Obviously I was fully awake, having just driven and exited my car seconds earlier. I now believe this dream like quality may be a side effect of some kind of time distortion generated by the object although I was not aware of any “missing time” after the sighting. Some UFO experiencers have talked about an event like this happening in multiple dimensions simultaneously…so perhaps my physical brain wasn’t actually fully “present” during the entire encounter which would explain the strange dream like quality of what should be a very, very strong memory.

Anyways to get back to the story, I next decided to try and get back in my car to see if I could get closer to it and see it from another angle, so I tried driving around the block but the object was gone. That was the end of the encounter.

I’m completely baffled by the experience. Even though the object certainly appeared to me to be a physical structure I’ve recently begun considering the possibility that it was more of an energetic structure or marker of some kind. I think it now more as a spiritual event but that’s not to say it wasn’t physical also.

I’ve searched the MUFON CMS database for similar diamond shaped craft but can’t find any matching reports. (When I say diamond shaped I mean that the “front” of the craft was facing me, not laying flat like the more often reported triangle shaped craft seen flying through the sky that are reported.) If you think of two triangles joined together to form a diamond shape, you will have the basic idea including the horizontal line.

 

(I did make a drawing of it a few days after and if I can post it somewhere and link to it here I will if that’s of interest to anyone) After getting in my car the second time and not finding the object I drove to my local Starbucks and described what I saw but of course I got the “you must be crazy” kind of look (even my own father didn’t believe me when I told him about it later that evening but that’s not too surprising as he is one not to believe in anything outside of “normal.” )

However, one of the Starbucks Barristas said that earlier that same evening, while he and his girlfriend were driving towards work – his girlfriend saw one or two strange purple things in the sky that she couldn’t identify. (note: graphic by author)

3 Large Orbs

3 Large Orbs

In 1992-93 there were three large orbs floating over my house at night around 830 with absolutely no noise  metallic. going west slowly they were just above the tree line,  A  30 foot diameter approximately as I watch them pass over my house directly above me the center orb slowly maneuvered underneath one of the side orb and took placement on the side of that orb, it became one then empty spot and then two more and before they went out of site that same orb circle behind  and took its center position placement back so that they were three in line again as they dropped out of sight absolutely no noise metallic reflective the lights on the ground were kind of reflecting off the outer Mirrored orb surface. I went inside not even thinking to tell anybody as my daughter was there with me the whole time asking me what they were she was six years old at the time, I have forgotten about that night for around 10 years. (note: image is a likeness)

Orange Orb

20yrs ago in on a beach in South East Ireland one November evening with my girlfriend at the time a red/orange object appeared from behind the cliffs moving horizontally not much faster than walking pace. The light was very bright like a flare,but obviously not a flare because flares don’t move slowly horizontally and stop.The object moved into the open maybe 50 to 100ft above us and stopped.It remained motionless for several minutes and made absolutely no sound,at this point we got concerned and then it blinked out.We started to walk away and it reappeared again,im not ashamed to say we ran.As we made our way to my car it remained there definitely looking at us.Up to that point i had no interest in the phenomenon but all that has changed.  I regret running that evening,if it ever happens again i’ll be staying put!
