Further Description of Sighting: I was a child with my mother watching the vehicle from windows in the kitchen, dining, and living room. Frustrated, my mother scrambled to find film for her camera while calling police, the airport, and relatives.
After watching this beautiful and interesting object for nearly 10 full minutes – I became bored and went back to watching television. Now I am obsessed with wanting to know what it was that I am sure I saw but that no one believes I saw.
I saw something that was insanely beautiful, quiet, and mind-boggling. I wish I could remember the pattern of colors that it displayed as I do recall that there was in fact a pattern. I called out the colors as they oozed around from the left… BLUUUUUUUUUE, REEEEEEEED, etc. My mother claims that the object, vehicle, probe, whatever – shot away at an incredible speed.
She says that she spotted the object in the sky because our poodle (in the yard at the time) was staring at it intensely. Thank you for your time. Would be willing to undergo hypnosis in order to remember more details about the color patterns or the shape so that I may create a drawing or animated video from those memories. Frustrated because I know these things are out there but in this case, knowledge is not power, it a deep-seeded source of frustration.
