Further Description of Sighting: Me and my mother’s friend were walking out from the house to her car to go to Hannaford, when I pointed to the sky in the west and saw a bright ball of light. I thought it was Mars, I was certain at first. “No, it’s a helicopter” she said. “No, it’s not. It’s a f***ing UFO” I said after studying it for a few seconds. I was terrified.
So we were watching it, and I could see it hover up and down slightly, it wasn’t a planet. The red blinking, PURE RED lights from the radio tower in southern Newcastle on Route 1. The ball was a red/orange swirly orb. Then, just as it was there, it blanked out PITCH BLACK. Only night sky to be seen. But then she and I could see faint rings of light blinking, in a circular form. I could see it moving back and forth in the sky, and then the other way by Damariscotta Lake. Keep in mind it was still far far away.
On our way back from Hannaford we could see it moving toward the south, the whole while I was pleading for it to leave, and go away. I was terrified. I was shaking the whole time. This whole experience.
