UFO's....

So....have anyone of you seen a UFO? I have.  When I was in Virginia visiting my son, I was outside just looking at the stars.  All of a sudden I saw lights in the sky, traveling pretty fast.  At first I thought it was a helicopter, then all of a sudden it started zipping from one side to another.  I've never seen an aircraft move like that!  Then a year or so later, my son and his wife were outside looking at the stars with his telescope, and they saw lights moving fast in the sky,  the lights came down lower, and then they saw three raptors (jets) chase after them.  The lights left those jets in the dust.  He used to live in Norfolk where there is a Naval Station.  I imagine that if there was something weird in the sky, the Navy would dispatch their jets to find out what's going on.  Here in Ivins, I live close to a lake called Gunlock Lake.  It is known for it's UFO activity.  I've seen falling stars, and satellites going through the desert sky, but one night I was sitting out, enjoying the warm evening and looking at the stars when I saw a bright light traveling low come over the horizon.  As I watched it, it got closer and closer.  It was low, very low.  As it approached I noticed I didn't hear any sound, and then it passed right over me.  I expected to get beamed up at any moment.  I continued to watch it move through the sky until it disappeared by shooting straight up and gone!  Weirdorama.  I gotta admit I got pretty nervous there for a minute.  I've seen other weird things in the sky, always wondering what is up there?  Anyone else?

i can't say i've ever had the pleasure. but i don't doubt for a second that we're the only planet in this ultra-vast universe that has 'intelligent' life. :)

My mom and I saw one many, many, many years ago when I was a kid living at home. I also had another very strand encounter once involving a flash of light. I am a believer.

My daughter & I saw 'something' in the Mohave Desert back in December 1993... as we were driving, the light stayed a distance behind us & as we'd drive down the hills & back up, that light stayed level! We slowed waaay down & it stayed the same distance behind us, it wouldn't get close to us...

Another time, my daughter & I saw 'something' in the sky south of town here about 10-12 years ago on July 4th after the fireworks... it had lots of different colored lights & was flying low. As we drove along the hwy, this 'thing' flew along the hwy, too, in the same direction... about a week later, my sister said that one of her friends that lived near us had been recording this 'thing' almost every night for almost a month... very strange, but I believe it's probably the government testing new aircraft & testing public reaction...

One night, years ago, I saw a light in the sky that was traveling horizontally. While I was watching it, all of a sudden it shot off at a speed faster than a normal jet.

I've never actually saw a UFO but when we lived out in the country many years ago my dad and I saw the hillside light up with green lights. It's seriously hard to explaine and frankly I have no clue what it was but it was most definitely unidentified. Never in my life saw anything like that again. I'm not kidding, it was one whole hillside with green flashing lights. Pretty freaky friend!!

I don't think I've ever seen a UFO - but I believe they are out there. It's a lot of wasted space if not!

Can't say that I've ever witnessed anything like this but it is fun to read about and a little spooky!

Wishing you and Tiah a wonderful day!

Well, I an honestly say I have saw something...have no idea what they were. It was just last summer or the one before. They were like two silvery white balls, zipping across the sky...daylight...late afternoon/evening...and one zipped over to the other one then back away. I searched the internet to see if anyone else had seen anything and did not see it mentioned anywhere. I don't know that it was a UFO, but it was something.
