Description & Details
flying metallic saucer slowly flying over apartment complex
(30 feet in air and silent).
off, I would like to mention that the date is a best guess.
This event took place 30 years ago. The only part of the
date I could be sure on was that it took place 1 to 2
days before a major holiday.
was very young then, and the whole event seems like a
story now, or more like something that I have watched
on TV. Its hard for me to believe that I really saw it.
And as time has passed, it has become just a memory, but
one of those memories that sticks out in your childhood.
was late at night. I would wake up in the middle of the
night and go into my parents bedroom to crawl in bed with
them or to hang out in their room so that I would not
be alone in my room late at night. (I was a kid...what
do you want)
this night, I was in their room and was just looking out
the window. The apartment complex we lived in had 4 units
per building (2 storey) and probably 10 separate buildings.
As I was looking out my parents' upstairs window, slowly
and silently, a metalic saucer shape approximatley 30
feet across moved into my eyesight from over another apartment
pace of the object was that of someone walking. It flew
just over the tree tops and the building and thats why
I guess it was 30 feet high. It was about 25-30 feet infront
of the window/building that I was in.
have re-visited this place since to gage the height and
size of the object. I have drawn pictures of this object
a couple of times in my life to better illustrate the
object for a few friends that I have shared the sighting
with, over the years.
object looked like it was a rough polished metal. Light
bronze/silver. Flat on the bottom except for right in
the center of the underside. It had a 10-foot- across
inverted cone-shaped area that went into the object.
I watched, it continued to move over the building and
over a small parking area (directly in front of me) and
continued on in the same direction. I watched it until
it went our of sight. I waited...it never came back.
I was so young, the event at the time did not seem that
remarkable. I do not even remember sharing this event
with any adult until later in life. I did though in fact,
share the experience with my cousins at a holiday/family
gathering, the next day (or day after). I remember telling
them and them laughing at me. They were all older than
me. I remember them distinctly asking me if it had lights
and what color they were? I told them it had no lights;
they continued laughing and asked how I saw it then? That
was the end of my credibility with them and they stopped
was true, it had no lights. The moon light, street light
or what ever light that was being emitted from the area
just reflected off the object to reveal the detail of
the metal. It was so close, I didn't need any other light.
