I was talking to my mum and her friend and i saw a star that caught my eye. i watched it and could tell it was moving (the opposite way to the stars) i thought the object was a star the object moved slowly and started off really bright but gradually got dim until the point where i couldn't see it anymore i felt humbled and a little fearful as we were on the subject of these sort of things. i sat in my chair and watched in awe as it moved across the sky and faded, i didn't think to take a picture because i was so intrigued by it. after, i was amazed after and carried on as normal i lost sight of the object because it faded and got dark so i was unable to track itI was talking to my mum and her friend and i saw a star that caught my eye. i watched it and could tell it was moving (the opposite way to the stars) i thought the object was a star the object moved slowly and started off really bright but gradually got dim until the point where i couldn't see it anymore i felt humbled and a little fearful as we were on the subject of these sort of things. i sat in my chair and watched in awe as it moved across the sky and faded, i didn't think to take a picture because i was so intrigued by it. after, i was amazed after and carried on as normal i lost sight of the object because it faded and got dark so i was unable to track it

On the night of august 11, at about 10:20pm, i was in the backyard taking the dog out. we live on the north shore of lake whatcom in washington state. it was a beautiful, clear night and the temperature was comfortable enough for a t-shirt. the view of the lake and sky at this time of the evening is always spectacular and i especially enjoy looking at the star field, which suffers from little light pollution. facing south, i noticed to my right at about 30 degree above the horizon and, judging by the angle from my position, due east of the lake, a brightly lit orange strobing object. somewhat larger than a star. my initial assumption was an aircraft. the flightpath from seatac passes over the hills in that direction. i looked for the usual navigation lights, but only saw orange flashes. what was obviously a plane was approaching from farther south, and easily identifiable as such. i concluded that this was something else. the plane was perhaps a few percent larger, in relative terms. during the approximately five minutes i watched it, it strobed about three times per sec. i also detected what i initially thought was movement relative to its general, very slow, northward movement. it appeared to jump back and forth a short distance, relative to my position. less than 1% of arc, but at what i concluded was a distance greater than the seatac flightpath, which was a few degrees lower than the object, this would be a significant distance. as it moved, left to right, the apparent size increased, giving the appearance that in the rightmost position it was either closer or larger. it moved back and forth several times: larger on the right and smaller on the left. always strobing. an additional detail is that the movement appeared to leave a trail between the two positions, also orange and distinctly narrower. in the right position, it appeared as two objects: larger on the right, connected by the “trail.” it never changed color, always a light orange with no other colors present. during the time i observed it, it moved slightly north relative to the peak of the hills to the west. at the beginning of the preceding paragraph i say “initially thought was movement” because in the rightmost position, there was still a light at the leftmost position. the distance between the positions of the lights would eliminate any convention aircraft explanation. it was too great unless the aircraft was massive in size. i went inside to get my wife for verification, but when we returned it was gone, or at least was not exhibiting the previous behavior.On the night of august 11, at about 10:20pm, i was in the backyard taking the dog out. we live on the north shore of lake whatcom in washington state. it was a beautiful, clear night and the

Pollock pines ca 08/16/2017 9:30 pm my husband and i were looking at the stars. we have a very nice view from our back deck. i saw it first. it was a bright white flash, the size of a bright star. it got very bright and faded slowly. then in 30 seconds - 60 seconds it would flash again in a different location. this went on for about 5 minutes total. it was not going in a straight line. it was going in reverse too. before it went out of view we saw it move very fast and far. my husband is very skeptical of these things but agreed what we saw was a ufo of some kind. it was amazing to see!!Pollock pines ca 08/16/2017 9:30 pm my husband and i were looking at the stars. we have a very nice view from our back deck. i saw it first. it was a bright white flash, the size of a bright star. it got very bright and faded slowly. then in 30 seconds - 60 seconds it would flash again in a different location. this went on for about 5 minutes total. it was not going in a straight line. it was going in reverse too. before it went out of view we saw it move very fast and far. my husband is very skeptical of these things but agreed what we saw was a ufo of some kind. it was amazing to see!!

My encounter was not a sighting but an experience. i was about 8 years old at the time living with my mother. i had what at first felt like a strange dream. i was in a room on a table with aliens who were doing an experiment/or test. this is the weird part. when i awoke i felt i was supposed to check my belly button. when i did i found a single seed/dry plant that was like wheat; inside my belly button. i pulled it out and had the sense it really happened/wasn't a dream. the picture i attach is the closest plant i could find that was like the one i found, but is not the exact plant. again, i was younger at the time. as time when on i just rationalized it as a dream, but that never explained the plant part. maybe this is useful to you or maybe it's nothing. i just felt the need to share the crazy experience, and wondered if you have ever heard of something like this happening before. it was very strange. thank you for your time.My encounter was not a sighting but an experience. i was about 8 years old at the time living with my mother. i had what at first felt like a strange dream. i was in a room on a table with aliens who were doing an experiment/or test. this is the weird part. when i awoke i felt i was supposed to check my belly button. when i did i found a single seed/dry plant that was like wheat; inside my belly button. i pulled it out and had the sense it really happened/wasn't a dream. the picture i attach is the closest plant i could find that was like the one i found, but is not the exact plant. again, i was younger at the time. as time when on i just rationalized it as a dream, but that never explained the plant part. maybe this is useful to you or maybe it's nothing. i just felt the need to share the crazy experience, and wondered if you have ever heard of something like this happening before. it was very strange. thank you for your time.

I noticed a blinking light in the sky after i got home from work. i put my dog out and something caught my eye. it was blinking so i watched it for about twenty minutes until it slowly moved towards two valleys.A couple of nights later i did the same thing got home from work,put the dog out. and the lights were back.But this time i had binoculars. that's when i saw the red and green lights blinking. watched it until it vanished between the two valleys again. but this time it showed up on the mountain across the highway. i watched it until it disappeared.Told my friend about it a and he saw it too.I noticed a blinking light in the sky after i got home from work. i put my dog out and something caught my eye. it was blinking so i watched it for about twenty minutes until it slowly moved towards two valleys.A couple of nights later i did the same thing got home from work,put the dog out. and the lights were back.But this time i had binoculars. that's when i saw the red and green lights blinking. watched it until it vanished between the two valleys again. but this time it showed up on the mountain across the highway. i watched it until it disappeared.Told my friend about it a and he saw it too.

I was with some friends at the nos primavera sound festival in porto, portugal. a friend noticed the swarm-like flashing lights flying over. i started filming at once. it was unlike anything we had seen and the sheer number of them made it quite impressionable!I was with some friends at the nos primavera sound festival in porto, portugal. a friend noticed the swarm-like flashing lights flying over. i started filming at once. it was unlike anything we had seen and the sheer number of them made it quite impressionable!

At 9:04 pm, i was sitting on my front porch facing north. suddenly, i saw what seemed to be a shooting star slowly falling many miles northeast. unlike a shooting star, it never faded or left a trail; it remained a solid, glowing, very bright object of the same size. when it disappeared behind a house across the street, i wondered what it was, and even got scared that it could have been some strange glowing weapon (like someone was attacking us) - but settled on it being a shooting star, and started thinking about a wish to make. a few seconds later, jogging my mind for wishes, i was totally shocked when the same bright object immediately bolted upwards - and then, immediately jetted to the east. i have never seen anything like that before. i pulled out my phone, opened the camera app, and started recording video. i have 34 seconds, timestamped 9:05 pm, aimed at the spot i saw it happen - but it was too late. it only captured an airplane and helicopter nearby. this was absolutely, unmistakeably not any of the following: - a plane - a helicopter - a bug - something in my eye - fireworks i am sober, and not sleep-derived. and i'm completely stumped.At 9:04 pm, i was sitting on my front porch facing north. suddenly, i saw what seemed to be a shooting star slowly falling many miles northeast. unlike a shooting star, it never faded or left a trail; it remained a solid, glowing, very bright object of the same size. when it disappeared behind a house across the street, i wondered what it was, and even got scared that it could have been some strange glowing weapon (like someone was attacking us) - but settled on it being a shooting star, and started thinking about a wish to make. a few seconds later, jogging my mind for wishes, i was totally shocked when the same bright object immediately bolted upwards - and then, immediately jetted to the east. i have never seen anything like that before. i pulled out my phone, opened the camera app, and started recording video. i have 34 seconds, timestamped 9:05 pm, aimed at the spot i saw it happen - but it was too late. it only captured an airplane and helicopter nearby. this was absolutely, unmistakeably not any of the following: - a plane - a helicopter - a bug - something in my eye - fireworks i am sober, and not sleep-derived. and i'm completely stumped.

This was the coolest thing i had ever seen. i was on my way to work and something high up in the sky caught my attention. it was tiny because of the distance it was from me but it had to have been the size of the average house and i could see it clearly. it was hovering directly above a large park. it was bean shaped. jelly bean shaped exactly. it was chrome, mirrored. there were no interruptions in the chrome. the thing was completely covered in chrome. it was truly exactly like seeing the chicago bean way up in the sky. it wasn't curved as much as the chicago bean though. just curved a bit, like a typical jelly bean. but the resemblance to the chicago bean, almost the same shape, completely chrome, and reflective, possibly even very similar in size. the ufo i saw was very high up. it was just hovering there. then it turned just the slightest bit on its axis, catching the sun, admitting the brightest glow, then boom it was gone. it didn't shoot off. it didn't fade. it didn't fall. it just disappeared. that was when i truly knew i had witnessed something spectacular.This was the coolest thing i had ever seen. i was on my way to work and something high up in the sky caught my attention. it was tiny because of the distance it was from me but it had to have been the size of the average house and i could see it clearly. it was hovering directly above a large park. it was bean shaped. jelly bean shaped exactly. it was chrome, mirrored. there were no interruptions in the chrome. the thing was completely covered in chrome. it was truly exactly like seeing the chicago bean way up in the sky. it wasn't curved as much as the chicago bean though. just curved a bit, like a typical jelly bean. but the resemblance to the chicago bean, almost the same shape, completely chrome, and reflective, possibly even very similar in size. the ufo i saw was very high up. it was just hovering there. then it turned just the slightest bit on its axis, catching the sun, admitting the brightest glow, then boom it was gone. it didn't shoot off. it didn't fade. it didn't fall. it just disappeared. that was when i truly knew i had witnessed something spectacular.

On august 16th 2017, we were in our friends house to look for her documents. she wasn't there because she had moved out of state a week ago. i loved her telescope so i to it to their 180 degree balcony and started stargazing at 9:37pm(western time) portland, oregon. after searching for 5 minutes, i looked up to get an eye break. then, i noticed about 7 airplanes flying to the city airport and when i looked at a flight tracking app, i saw that they were all actual planes. then i decided to go back to stargazing but noticed three additional objects. when i checked the radar again, i didn't see the objects documented and labeled so i thought they were military aircrafts but after gazing for some time, i noticed they weren't moving. that's when i took out my binoculars and looked closely. my jaw dropped when i saw the lights and the shape of 1 of the 3 objects. there were no windows or cockpits and there were flashing lights with about 3-4 colors. the object was hovering like a helicopter. i observed the same thing with the other two objects. i called my dad and explained everything to him but he laughed at me and left after looking at them. i followed them for 3 extra minutes and saw all three of them line up in a straight line and then like a race, they took off in different directions at a very high speed. the other two disappeared behind the hills and i barely followed the third one which disappeared faster . i checked my tracker one more time and didn't see them. i also recorded three 2 minute long videos. i do believe i saw three unidentified flying disks.On august 16th 2017, we were in our friends house to look for her documents. she wasn't there because she had moved out of state a week ago. i loved her telescope so i to it to their 180 degree balcony and started stargazing at 9:37pm(western time) portland, oregon. after searching for 5 minutes, i looked up to get an eye break. then, i noticed about 7 airplanes flying to the city airport and when i looked at a flight tracking app, i saw that they were all actual planes. then i decided to go back to stargazing but noticed three additional objects. when i checked the radar again, i didn't see the objects documented and labeled so i thought they were military aircrafts but after gazing for some time, i noticed they weren't moving. that's when i took out my binoculars and looked closely. my jaw dropped when i saw the lights and the shape of 1 of the 3 objects. there were no windows or cockpits and there were flashing lights with about 3-4 colors. the object was hovering like a helicopter. i observed the same thing with the other two objects. i called my dad and explained everything to him but he laughed at me and left after looking at them. i followed them for 3 extra minutes and saw all three of them line up in a straight line and then like a race, they took off in different directions at a very high speed. the other two disappeared behind the hills and i barely followed the third one which disappeared faster . i checked my tracker one more time and didn't see them. i also recorded three 2 minute long videos. i do believe i saw three unidentified flying disks.

I got home late and got out of my car and walked out of my garage. high up in the west (which was sraight ahead of me) i noticed a star sized orb colorfully pulsating. it was descending fast enough where i knew i needed to grab my good camera quickly in order to get a chance to get some good shots. however, it wasn't fast enough at all to be any sort of meteor, airplane, helicopter, etc. i know of nothing of that size, pulsating very bright color, that would be that high up, but slowly come down in a straight line long enough for me to observe it over about five minutes as it lowered about 5-6 inches if i measured with a ruler right in front of me. once i got my camera, i zoomed into this orb pulsating every color of the rainbow very fast. it was so bright that i couldn't see the shape of the object. it finally disappeared behind the house across the street from mine, then i couldn't do anything. unfortunately, the video i got was horrible. yet, i did capture an awesome picture. i moved a bit when taking it, so there was a trail created of the object. yet, that trail allows anyone who sees it to observe the variety of color this object illuminated and just how bright it really was. this picture is a picture my phone took of the display screen of my camera and it still looks cool. i live right by a major airport, within a couple miles. i have airplanes roaring over my home constanly. this wasn't a plane, plus it was a couple miles away, straight ahead (west), high up in the sky. you could argue it was coming in for a landing from miles away. but then it would not be descending straight down without coming closer to the airport which was a couple miles from me to my left (south). if it did land, it would have landed miles away from the airport with that behavior. also, last time i checked too, planes blink at night using two or three colors. they do not pulsate very rapidly (non-stop) between the colors of the rainbow.I got home late and got out of my car and walked out of my garage. high up in the west (which was sraight ahead of me) i noticed a star sized orb colorfully pulsating. it was descending fast enough where i knew i needed to grab my good camera quickly in order to get a chance to get some good shots. however, it wasn't fast enough at all to be any sort of meteor, airplane, helicopter, etc. i know of nothing of that size, pulsating very bright color, that would be that high up, but slowly come down in a straight line long enough for me to observe it over about five minutes as it lowered about 5-6 inches if i measured with a ruler right in front of me. once i got my camera, i zoomed into this orb pulsating every color of the rainbow very fast. it was so bright that i couldn't see the shape of the object. it finally disappeared behind the house across the street from mine, then i couldn't do anything. unfortunately, the video i got was horrible. yet, i did capture an awesome picture. i moved a bit when taking it, so there was a trail created of the object. yet, that trail allows anyone who sees it to observe the variety of color this object illuminated and just how bright it really was. this picture is a picture my phone took of the display screen of my camera and it still looks cool. i live right by a major airport, within a couple miles. i have airplanes roaring over my home constanly. this wasn't a plane, plus it was a couple miles away, straight ahead (west), high up in the sky. you could argue it was coming in for a landing from miles away. but then it would not be descending straight down without coming closer to the airport which was a couple miles from me to my left (south). if it did land, it would have landed miles away from the airport with that behavior. also, last time i checked too, planes blink at night using two or three colors. they do not pulsate very rapidly (non-stop) between the colors of the rainbow.
