with the window down reached in grabbed the camera and aimed it at the UFO. In an instant and what I describe as a backward Z pattern the UFO disappeared. It took me five years just to tell my spouse because I knew she like many other people would never believe me.

I grew up believing in "flying saucers", my father was a police officer in a small town, working the night shift when he got a call from a panicky lady that something was shining a bright light in her back field. My father drove out to investigate and saw a large "spot light" coming from beneath the outline of a saucer shaped object and it was shining the light around the field ......he drove into the lady's yard as he drove past the house towards the field in back ...the object lifted up into the sky and quickly disappeared. ...this was late '40s (1948-1949)....the object was not a helicopter, it made no sound.

My Story, 1972 St Augustine, Fl...I lived on Sailboat and a friend and I were sitting in the cockpit facing the east looking over the ocean chatting.....My friend says out of the blue "did you see what I just saw"....I asked "What did you see"......What we both saw, was sitting high in the eastern sky 12 o'clock position was a very bright light (star, we thought)...this was at dusk and from out of the south came a pinpoint light very fast at about the 4 o'clock position then went up and (into) the brighter light.....within seconds both went straight up out of sight.....We both decided there was no aircraft we knew of that could do this.

300 feet? Do you know how close that is in the air?

not saying he didn't see what he thinks he saw but would you get within 300 feet of a football field size object in space? Not likely.

Default UFO Part II

Jebartle The sight of the camera is what caused this UFO to disappear faster then it took me to aim that camera. Again moving from left motion to right then upward then right to left completing the top of a Z and it was gone. I tried over the years to believe that perhaps it was a government secret project but to this day the military has not come close to displaying this sort of technology. By the way it was in the shape of a saucer. Again from where I was standing it was like looking underneath a stainless steel kitchen bowl.

I suspect there are many people who claim sightings and are lying or mistaken. However there are so many credible people like the pilot cited earlier in this thread.

Yet this was a broad daylight August day on a Friday afternoon with not a cloud in the sky. So I had a clear view of what was in front of me. Again the speed with which it left is unimagineable. If we could go back in time that is one time I would choose for myself. It had a profound and lasting effect on my life.

Appreciate you sharing your story. It's always so very interesting to learn about what others have witnessed. Thanks.

First of all let me say that I do believe that there is life out there in the universe. And they are probably completely different than us. I do believe that people posting have seen these phenomena.

And I have a question: We keep sending probes to these different planets to see if there is water. For some reason our scientists believe that water equals life. Why do these scientists think that any other life form in the universe or other galaxy is like us and needs water to exist?

Just curious.

Actually, they're looking for LIQUID water, not ice or vapor. I've provided a link to "Life's Little Essential" from NOVA. It's interesting reading. Check out the link for a good explaination about why water is necessary for life.

If you go to the Nova Mars Dead or Alive at the bottom of this article and go to Ask The Expert, there is this Q&A:


Q: Is it possible that the things necessary to sustain life are different on other planets than they are on Earth?
Westview 8th Grade, Denver, Colorado

A: It may be possible, but life as we know it needs relatively moderate temperatures and water to live. So, places with those conditions are the first place to look. We know that, at a minimum, life needs an energy source of some sort.

So the conjecture is "life as we know it". I guess I will have to go with that.

Thanks for the links.

My other soldiers have reported how destructive and hateful they are throughout the world but I don't see it in this community. If we decide to destroy this planet, I will suggest they spare the Village People. There is hope for them.
Tom, I think the fleet and your mothership is back looking for you.

Has anyone heard from Tom lately? I sure hope the mother ship didn't get him!

Because you asked, SkyGuy............
The mother ship will not come for me until I finish my research. Although most reports from other astronauts say, This planet will self destruct, I feel you Village People are a peaceful bunch and I need to continue my studies a bit longer until I find out why. Are you taking happy pills or is there something in that terrible tasting water?

How's this for an idea.

There is a belief held among some that earthlings were put here by beings from another plant for whatever reason. Maybe they wanted to see what happens (kinda like an ant farm) or their planet was in danger of demise or what ever.

In any event, it's been found that ancients have made references to beings and visitors. It's been found in their writings and wall paintings.

Next step: Most of us believe in God. If God made people, then he made all the people who might be living on all the planets, right? So, did he make all the people on all the planets to look the same way?

During these early visits, the new earthlings could well have thought the visitors from the sky were a deity. Then, if in fact we were brought here by beings from other planets who look like us, that lends an interesting theory to the biblical passage that God "made man in his own image and likeness."
