SIGHTING ACCOUNTS FROM THREE FRIENDS
Sighting a UFO is something many people want to experience, but do not get the chance. When sighting a UFO (Unidentified Flying Object), it is usually a quite unnerving experience. Consequently, one scrambles to get the sighting on camera for at least a snapshot, if not a short video. In the past, before the advent of smart phones, most individuals had not thought to keep a camera with them during the normal course of daily living. Nowadays, the opposite is true. Truly, most people have a phone with cameras, Internet, and other fantastic tools at their disposal on a daily basis.
With 21st century technology in full swing where someone can just click and shoot whatever they fancy, as it were. It is no doubt why sighting UFO’s or UAP’s (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) are becoming more numerous. Also, the quality of the UFO sighting is more clear than in the past. As with older investigations, a small percentage of sightings cannot be explained.
PROS AND CONS
On the down side, there are those individuals (or groups) of people who are adept at trickery. With modern technology, faking a sighting is easier to do than ever. The reasons to perpetrate such hoaxes are still pretty much the same. People utilize CGI (Computer Generated Imagery), as well as, Photoshop (and other software) to create their nefarious deeds of deception.
Sometimes, there are persons of good, honest stature who have experienced a sighting of a craft that they cannot explain. Three friends wanted to share what they saw in this article. One of them said using his real name was just fine. They gave Universal Digest permission to publish their events here. One person, due to the sensitivity of their position in a career has chosen to use a pseudonym. This writer is preserving the anonymity with appreciation on allowing his sighting and accounting of experiences.
Contact was initiated on the Facebook social media format in early 2018. To complete such projects, as these, it normally takes over a year. Some events are very sensitive in nature and many years have passed before making these events public.
This is my story, as brief that it is. I was living in Golden Colorado around the turn of the 21st century.
One evening I went out to get a breath of fresh air and as always looked up at the beautiful night sky, but, this night was a wee bit different. I observed an object, a bright light falling from the sky at a high rate of speed from my perception. Suddenly it stopped, hovered a few seconds, then took off at an acute angle at high velocity and left my sight. I’ve never ever seen anything move that fast. This was a controlled craft of some kind, in my opinion, and clearly artificially created. Nothing natural could do what I observed.
I have had one more experience, but, I’m not sure how to describe it. Do you think it would be big if you saw it from over a 100+ miles away from peaking from behind the clouds? This second one is a little foggy to remember. All I remember is the enormity of it.
Many years ago, Ian was outside his home one evening in a clear, starlit sky. He raced into his home to get his camera and returned to gain a few shots. Unfortunately, he has been unable to find his photographs in storage. Therefore, he complied a two-photo reconstruction of the orange, saucer-type craft he saw that evening.
Here they are. The background he photographed was the same as his original sighting.
It was about 2 am but I don’t really know the size; it is difficult to know. I just know how big it looked in the sky like in the picture reconstruction, I would just be making up a size, but it could be 50 feet to 100 feet across. This is the one where I looked up in the area of the Big Dipper and saw it, again.
To sum it up, I believe it may be more towards the 50 foot end, but that’s a guess.
I don’t have much experience with estimating the size of things in the sky.
The first and third UFO I had seen (at age 2.5, and about 4 years-old) looked like a shallow triangle shaped like a sting ray (sort of) and glowed in a pale cream colored white in it’s entirety! I sensed something living or sentient. It had its edges slightly turned up. The following photos (shown below) remind me of what I saw…this slowly moved directly over me as my family camped out. My oldest sister remembers one of those occasions (she is 13 years older than me).
The second and fourth UFO I saw looked more like the traditional ‘Sport Model’ one. The first instance was when I was 3-4 years old while my family was watching JFK’s funeral…it flew over our house…I was playing in the front room and it seemed to call me over to see it. The next time I was 11.5 years old, and it was landing/hovering out in the field next to my house. It looked mostly like these photos, and had a glowing plasma shining under it when it hovered in the field apparently waiting for me.
A CABIN CONSTRUCTION SETS THE SCENE
About the mass abduction, during the Springtime when I was 10 years-old, I helped my neighbor friends (brothers two years and three years older than me respectively) build (what we called) a cabin. It was out in the woods in back of their dad’s dairy farm (a mile from anyone’s house). The cabin was, essentially, 4 feet by 8 feet and the walls were 3.5 feet high. The ridge pole stood at about 6 feet. It kept the cows from trampling us while we were there. We chopped down some trees and lashed them Lincoln-Log-style together with bailing twine. There was a 4 inch gap between ‘logs’ and an open roof with a ridge-pole that we could throw a tarp over in case it rained.
THE MASS ABDUCTION
Our intention was to spend as much time out there that next summer camping and playing in the woods, as possible. The night of the abduction was the first and the last time we went out there.
On the way back home the next morning three of the four other kids remembered what happened, but eventually said (as we walked through the field, that ‘it never happened’. I think they realized they would be ridiculed if they said something. The last one (my best friend at the time) took two weeks to succumb to pier pressure, and finally deny that it happened. So, if it didn’t happen, and it was just out imagination, why didn’t we go back?
I actually did (accidentally) return a few years later while riding one of their horses to bring in the cows from straggling in the woods. Running into the cabin, I suddenly remembered everything! I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. Without a doubt they (friends) would not want to recall those events. I have lost track of them over the years. Sorry, it must remain unsubstantiated, as I do not wish to get in contact with them. It’s been most of my life past. We had a falling out a couple years after that.
The mass abduction (with my friends at age 10.5) looked like a bunch of colorful swirling lights.
PHOTOS FROM PAUL’S SIGHTING EVENTS OVER TIME
Photo 1: The glow was like this, only it covered the entire craft that I could see (only the bottom) and was cream colored and was glowing but didn’t hurt my eyes.
Photo 2-3: This was the general shape of it, only I don’t remember it being quite as thick. This was more like the shape of it, but the tail wasn’t as long. In fact, it had that central point at the rear, but just barely. (Click on any image to view separately)
Photo 4: It was duller looking than this and didn’t reflect like this does, but it reminds me of it.
Photo 5: It was slightly larger than this depiction.
PAUL SUMS UP HIS EXPERIENCES
Most of the time, I don’t remember seeing the craft(s) or the entities during my abductions, but knew I was. There are others in my family who have had similar experiences. My child remembers almost identical abductions by his ‘teachers’ (human looking people who communicated telepathically, and who showed him things that would be coming in the future).
Snip from FB Chat: The ‘Manta’ shaped craft that floated over me at two different occasions when I was very young. It looked more like the pictures above only flat on the bottom (not like the bump on the top) and the edges of the tips of the wings curved up slightly at the very tips. So, this is pretty much what it looked like. Notice the rear of the wings each have a “U” shape, that meets in the middle at a point.
As mentioned above, there are so many reliable, honest, and objective persons who have had significant experiences regarding unexplained aerial events, as well as, actual abductions. We here at Universal Digest are pleased to bring you these events.
Substantiated or not, it takes a lot of internal fortitude to come forward to share their stories with the public. Most often, their reasons are quite altruistic. Further, when they do share there is a common thread of thought; here it is, take it or leave it (author’s loose connotation).
