It has finally happened...
Most of my life (Typical boy) I have dreamed of little green men roaming the skys.
Me and my friend sin high school would make movies, trying to trick our non-friends that we actually got footage of an alien spacecraft (We were pretty good, conviced one of the girls on birth control in my school).
Rocky (my craziest friend on earth) told stories about aliens, UFOs, 'goon goons' (Goon Goons were his name for bigfoot-like creatures that lived near his home in Flintstone, Gerogia) and even dragons... fun times. Taken with a grain of salt.
I still catch myself watching these UFO shows on the History Channel or Discovery. Half the time I am sitting there saying "Show me REAL proof!" because the footage sucks or there is no footage at all. Ill dismiss weak lights as planes, satillites, etc...
But last night, I saw my first UFO.
And it was a UFO in the truest sense of the word. It was flying and it was unidentified. I am not saying I saw, nor am I even saying I THINK I saw an "alien piloted spacecraft"... just a UFO.
Driving down the main road to my house. 8:40pm. I see a bright light in the sky, brighter than any star in the sky, as though it were a star that was MUCH closer than the others). From the right of my windshield I see it up in the sky as I am driving 35 mph. I think "Cool, a shooting star!" I wait for it to disappear, as most shooting stars do after 2 or 3 seconds... and wait, and wait. I literally am watching it still as I have time to think "There is no tail on that shooting star... and it isnt disappearing... and there are no blinking lights, so it cant be a plane."
It stayed in the sky, moving quite fast, until I could no longer see it due to trees.
Rocky told me about the blinking light thing. And my dad confirmed it since he has his piolts license and was in teh air force. PLanes must have blinking lights. Ever since Rocky told me "If it has blinking lights, it isnt a UFO" Ill catch myself looking at planes at night, only to be disappointed that there was a blinking light on it...
Josh suggested it was a jet from an airshow in Montgomery. I still say all aircraft have lights they are required to have. If it is some top secret plane, why is it over wetumpka, and why does it have an extreemly bright white light. Sip also suggests a satallite. Though, they move slower, have dimmer lights, and the ones I have noticed are red. So he suggested a sat. reflecting the sun. Not a bad guess, but I still say itwas moving too fast. It was going about the speed of a shooting star.
Mullins suggested a helicopter, but even a quiet heli can shake windows, especially if it is moving fast and some-what low...
Dunno, but by definition, I have seen my first UFO.
