From the days of cavemen drawing strange looking creatures on cave walls to the current youtube vids of strange flying objects, humanity has wondered if we were alone in the universe. I can't really say what I've seen is from another world, but I know it was definitely not something that civilians have not been exposed to.
First, my UFO story. It was before the turn of the century. I was contacted by a childhood friend that had moved away. He was in town and wanted to hang out and find some parties.
Let me give you some background on my friend. We'll call him John Money, for reasons of privacy. I had met him in junior high scool. We shared many interests, including video games, conspiracy theories, and ufo's. He was by far the biggest prankster and compulsive liar I'd ever known. There were days when he would come to school with stories of being abducted by aliens the previous night. I would always start by telling him that he was full of it, and that there was no proof that his outlandish story had actually happenned. Throughout the day his story would wear on my skepticism so much that I would finally start believing him. Once he knew he gained my trust, he'd spill the beans that it was all made up. I'd get so mad that he'd take advantage of my eventual gullibility, that I'd refuse to hear about his body transfers, monster sightings, and anything else he'd made up.
Back to the search for a party, we headed out with his new friend 'Colby'. Colby seemed like a cool enough guy, just another party goer for us to joke around with. We piled into John's little Nissan truck and headed to a place up north of town. We had heard that there was a smashing party there. Well, after we got there we noticed that the destination was just full of people like us who were looking for another place to go have fun. They had little to no idea of what to do. After the most boring 15 minutes of our lives, we had decided to get out of there and find our own fun. This is when the sighting happened.
After bolting out of the door, John ran to his truck and sat facing us from the parking lot. Colby and I looked at each other with facial expressions that echoed "I'm definitely not running". We just kept walking slowly down the sidewalk toward the parking lot when a bright amber light started glowing in the sky. I was staring at it, not really having it register as unusual until I noticed that Colby was watching it too. The light was the same color as some of those street lights and seemed large. We looked from the light to each other and said at the same time "Are you seeing what I'm seeing?". There was no need to answer, we looked back toward the light. It then traced an 'S' shape across the sky before it vanished at the horizon line.
We both immediately started exclaiming 'UFO'. Jumping up and down in our excitement we were trying to tell John what we saw. He just laughed at us, thinking we were joking around. After getting in the truck, we relayed what we had just witnessed to our mutual friend, Mr. Money. He refused to believe us and chalked the situation up to us trying to 'pull one over' on him. I don't think there was a more appropriate time to see one of those things.
Have you ever seen a UFO? If so, do you think it was piloted by aliens or part of some secret military project?
