Further Description of Sighting: Well, I was 10y/o at the time, my Mom and I were living in a 2bed/1bath apartment in Chowchilla, which is a small somewhat rural farming town in the San Joaquin Valley in California. Anyways, (the following is important to the story so please bear with me) I remember the day and events therein vividly, because it was unlike any other before or since, and the first & only UFO I’ve ever seen in my almost 23 years alive.
So, I mentioned that that just me & my Mom lived in an apartment, where our cat Salem had recently had a litter of kittens, and 1 of them loved to sleep underneath this rocking lazyboy chair, that day I flopped into the recliner which killed the kitten. I realized what I did and felt so bad I began crying so inconsolably that my Mom, desperate to cheer me up took me to Merced to see ‘Scary Movie’ which coincidently opened in theatres that day.
It worked in taking my mind off the tragedy from earlier in the day, opening day of the film meant the theatre was at near max capacity. It was probably about 9pm when the movie ended, and everyone who came out through the front exit noticed everyone was looking to the sky(some had cell phones and cameras filming the UFO, but I can’t find any footage or even reports on the web… Odd, huh?) And me and mom, as well as the 100 or so people who came outside with us, were amazed when we saw what everybody was looking at which the crowd unanimously agreed was a real live UFO.
I’LL TRY FROM WHAT I CAN REMEMBER IN ACCURATE DETAIL TO DESCRIBE WHAT I, AND MANY OTHERS SAW IN THE NIGHT SKY OF JULY 7, 2000. I FULLY SWEAR TO THE TRUTH OF EVERYTHING SAID IN MY PERSONAL DESCRIPTION: -whatever it may have been was above earths atmosphere, too high for any discernable features to be seen with the naked eye, the clearly visible thing was what the UFO was emitting as it hovered there; which appeared to be similar to how our jet planes leave that smoke-gas cloud trail behind them, marking where it had flown from.
if not for the trail of! bright glowing green cloud of gas it left in its wake, we wouldve been oblivious to it. It no doubt was more than a mile up, when we saw it, it had already been there for 20 minutes or so somebody told us. And only 1/3 of the total shape made from the UFOs smoke trail was there. We stood watching as it, very slowly, flew over us eventually making a complete half circle, and unlike smoke and gasses we are familiar with, this fluorescent smoke-like gas trail behind the UFO didn’t expand, change shape, lose density, or gradually dissipate in the course of maybe 45minutes to an hour that we observed the strange phenomena.
The craft only became visible to me when it appeared to glow, as if to power up, this lasted less than 5 seconds before zooming away faster than my eye could follow, so I can’t tell you if it headed north, south, east, or west. Although it’s fluorescent smoke flight path marker maintained shape, size, color, density, and fluorescence for about 10 minutes after the UFO made its sudden departure, then began to behave like we see a cloud behave in the sky on a sunny day, although It did remain a visible fluorescent green in its “C” shape for roughly 2 1/2 hours thereafter.
If anybody from Merced who happened to see the UFO in the sky that night, or better yet have actual footage somewhere of the UFO over Merced (and possibly seen elsewhere in the San Joaquin Valley) on JULY of 2000, please email me. I FULLY BELIEVE THAT WHAT I WITNESSED WAS EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL OR A SECRETIVE GOVERNMENT SPACE FLIGHT EXPERIMENT OF SOME KIND, AND WAS BRUSHED UNDER MEDIA ATTENTION AND COVERED UP, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO SEE FOOTAGE OF IT NEVERTHELESS. GOD BLESS AND QUESTION EVERYTHING! Adios
