I finished my run on sonoma ranch boulevard in las cruces, between lohman and dripping springs road. it’s very dark out there in the desert. i saw a bright light low in the northern sky, below the big dipper and thought it must be a planet or star, so i would look it up later. i was standing next to my car and i looked down into it because i was syncing my sports watch with the app on my phone. when i looked back up to the north, the light was gone and that freaked me out a little.
On september 3rd 2014 at around 9 15 pm, (after dark), while having dinner with my family, on vacation at the alvor praia hotel, alvor, in portugal’s argarve district. my son (then 31 years old) and i saw a red-orange ball rise out of the sea, about 500 yards off tres irmaos beach in front of the hotel. we were looking down from the hotel’s open air dining terrace (about 100 ft above sea level) towards the west when we saw the very bright object come up vertically out of the sea (lagos bay). we could see it rise vertically in the sky against the back-drop of the town lights of lagos, across the bay. to the west. the object climbed slowly to a height of i estimate a thousand feet (at least). the object then executed a curved flight in a parabola to the horizontal. it then immediately ‘took off’ to the west, along the coastline at ‘jaw dropping speed’ i timed the object and estimated it’s recessional speed at about 1 mile per second! no sound! no sonic boom.
the following morning, a portuguese navy ship was present in the bay! this ship looked to be a hydrographic survey ship, from comparisons that we did ‘real-time’ on the internet, while looking at the ship with binoculars. there was also a helicopter overhead and what looked to be men ain rubber boat, from the navy ship, taking samples in the sea. my family have vacationed at this same spot for 10 years and have never seen a portuguese navy ship in the bay.
this event made a very deep, lasting impression on my son and i.
the sky in the area was clear at the time, with starlight and viewing conditions were excellent. i regularly watch aircraft flying to and from faro airport nearby at this location. the speed of this orange ball was just incredible. it tooth breath away! i estimate the size of this spherical object around 30 ft minimum. diameter perhaps double that size. the light was pinkish-orange-red. never seen a color like it. it looked to me to be a ball of plasma. however the outline of the light was very sharp. as it receded it pulsated very slightly.
what was it??? absolutely no idea.
hundreds of holidaymakers in that busy vacation area and town (avor and lagos) must have seen this event. hence the presence next day of a portuguese navy vessel in he bay.
Was walking outside and noticed a object that just made autumn over sf…Took one picture and decided to take video by the time i switched from picture to video mode the object was gone!
object left donuts on a rope contrail.
My brother, and i were shooting basketball in the driveway of our parents home in august of 1976 at night when all of sudden we looked up and witnessed this sideways oval shaped fiery in color craft moving very slowing over the trees.
it was easy to see this due to its enormous size and shape. my first thought is i wanted others to see what we were seeing or they would not believe us. i screamed to my brother to quickly run in the house and see if others can see it too. the only other person who ran out of the house was my younger sister who could not have been any older than 9 years old. even she remembers seeing it to this day and remembers see lights moving under the craft. we all three witnessed to this craft moving very slowly over the tree line and eventually vanished into thin air.
we know what we saw that night and our father for many years was always skeptical. years later in the age of internet i did read a post from another person recounting their experience seeing a similar craft in that year in the summer. i shared that with my father and he was a bit perplexed to say the least.
our family moved into this home back in august of 1969 – brand new home at the time. many years during our time there, we experienced strange lights in the sky and areas where the trees were in the back sometimes who show branches violently blown down from above.
many hauntings experienced in this home too during these years.
We were driving along the road around 1:30 in the morning listening to music we have been down this road before at night so we know what is is suppose to look like at night. but for some reason on that night it was different unlike any other. we were driving allong a lake shore road in plattsburgh, the speed limit was 55, as we got closer to the beginning of the road, we saw a blinding white led style light. hovering over the water. nobody was around because it was so early in the morning so it was not a drone. it was a ufo. it was aproxomatly the size of a large truck or school bus. we drove by it terrified. after getting so close to it we could see the underside of the object. we drove away fast because we were scared. when we can back on our way home, it had vanished.
I was sitting on my deck which looks out at delmonte forest, the monterey coast line and pacific ocean. it was roughly 3:40 pm, i was just standing looking out at the trees and the ocean,i have very sceenic view. all of a sudden saw this object out over pacific ocean, at 40 degree angle on horizon,flying straight line path at very high speed it looked to be cylinder shaped, pulsating, light blue white in color almost transparent, like it was trying to blend in with skyline very stealth like. it was running north to south to pacific coast line i saw it for about 5 to 8 seconds, then it was out of view. this was no jet,!! or missle . i never seen anything like it. i like to know if anyone else saw it that day?
Came outside for a smoke facing west on a clear sunny day with a few clouds at 11:27 am on 10/16/17. we have a lot of air traffic in the tampa bay area. i noticed a dark rectangular object at 33 degrees to the nw over a mile away. i thought it was a bird gliding at first. dark with no reflection from sun. sun was still in the east and object was west so it should have been bright if it were a plane. we are subject to military aircraft such as black hawk helo’s. object appeared a thin rectangular object and moved south in front of clouds for several seconds. in less than a mile and aprox. 100 mph it just vanished. no cloud cover when this happened. i tracked it’s known path for a while to see if it would reemerge. it did not. then i noticed my eyes were full of spots every time i blinked. similar to a photo flash but in a 20 x 20 grid of dots. this is not unusual looking up in the sky in florida but not when looking away from the sun and not in a grid pattern. not sure what i saw due to it’s distance. i know i was fully awake and conscious and saw this event clearly. the object would have been over the gulf of mexico at least a mile out.
Driving down highway 15 south, southern direction towards us border in lacolle. appeared at top of car windshield and crossed visible sky at incredible speed before disappearing on the horizon. dark sky, no other aerial traffic. blue-green orb with well defined contour and intense brightness. surprised, i tried to comprehend the phenomenon by mentally reviewing various possible explanations.
I was out side and heard a swishing sound so i looked up and there it was so i took a picture have always believed in extraterrestrials and now i have proof
Not much more to tell about the event just have never seen anything like it before.
