What did the UFO look like: It was the typical saucer-shape, somewhat more angular than rounded though. It was dark, saucer appeared to be a dark metallic substance, banks of lights circling the entire machine around the center. Lights were white in color. I am not good at estimating size, but it was probably twice the size of a large helicopter.
Did the UFO do any strange things: It was a clear fall night and my husband James and I were sitting outside looking at the stars behind our apartment building. We spotted one star in the distance that started moving horizontally across the sky-movement was rapid-I blinked my eyes and the object moved from the far right to far left of my field of vision in the sky.
We were fascinated and kept watching for several minutes, then the object appeared to somehow be “aware” of us watching. Very abruptly it stopped in the center of the horizon and then rapidly came towards us across the sky-I had the sense that it was “looking” back at me now. I recall one light on the circumference of the machine that acted more as a searchlight aimed in our general direction.
The machine made absolutely no sound at any time-just traveled very quickly and looked like nothing I had seen before or since. Its fast approach scared both of us and we ran back into the building as fast as we could. By the time we had climbed up to the 3rd floor and went to the balcony the object was no longer visible.
Additional comments: It feels so good to tell this story to someone who won’t look at me like I have 2 heads! Good luck with your research. Thank YOU!
