Location of Event: Tallaboa, Puerto Rico

Message: Although I cannot remember the exact date, this experience is something that I have never forgotten. It happened between 1978-1979 when I was about 24. It was around 11:00 pm and I was driving and returning from San Juan and traveling to Mayaguez where I lived at that time. I saw this red thing red in the sky moving very fast and suddenly stopped (like it was checking on my car).

I could see it from my car and I became very nervous and afraid of this thing. Then, it took off at high speed and went into the bay/water and submerged. I pressed the gas pedal of my car and drove off never looking back. There is no doubt in my mind that this was a flying object/machine from another planet. I am now 65 but still remember this encounter.
