Message: Me and two friends were swimming in my pool in the backyard. WE noticed a ship of some sort to our right appearing in the distance just like a plane but not blinking. It would appear at the farthest point in the sky and travel slowly closer but still far away and dissapear. We started to notice that once it dissapeared it would appear at the beginning point. Once we began having interest in this we noticed that the ship or whatever began coming directly at us slowly i think? i swear it was like a dream!
The ship came directly over my pool and hovered for at least a minute roughly 40 foot above our heads. It made no noise had lights but you could not tell what they were if that makes sense. It was not like a bulb from a plane. At first i think we were just stunned at the size of it. A huge Rectangle ship NO wings! We kept looking for them because we could not believe a ship could be a rectangle< but it was. We finally snapped out of our stare and started running for the side of the pool to get out and tell everyone inside.
Just as we started moving it started moving backwards and turned to the left ove my sisters room. As i got to the sliding door i turned to look at it one more time as i did it tilted downward and blue a flame or something about 20 or more feet and shot into the street and dissapeared. Sounds crazy but its true! it only made a sound when it disappeared which shook the plates off my walls. My friends and I were the only ones to visually see this that night that im aware of.
My parents came rushing outside as did all my neighbors. everyone felt it but noone was outside. I will never forget that day for the rest of my life. Some i tell will not believe me but we know what we saw. ON the news they said they were doing test at the navel base in Corpus..I DONT THINK SO!! Thanks for hearing my story.
