    I saw one nine years ago on an Indian reserve on my way to cover a band council meeting for a newspaper.

    Thought it was a helicopter at first. Sometimes police helicopters fly over fields with infrared cameras to locate pot plants deep in the bush.

    So I followed the thing along a dirt road. Stopped the car and it was hovering almost right above me, at a very low altitude, maybe at the height of two telephone poles.

    I couldn't tell you just what shape it was, or just how large it was even though it was so close. There were very large colourful electric lights of different shapes, kind of like a fucked up Simon game.

    [​IMG]

    There weren't any nav, strobe or beacon lights anywhere on it.

    I just stared at it for five or ten seconds, trying to fit whatever I was seeing into the shape of a helicopter or plane or some other vehicle that my brain could register.

    Just when I finally clued in that there was no way this was a helicopter or plane, it took off, and fast. Completely out of sight in a few short seconds.

    The whole time, it didn't make the faintest sound; not when it was hovering above me, not when it zoomed away.

    I went back to the office and asked if anybody had called in reporting seeing a UFO. No dice.

    I have no idea what it was. I don't buy into alien stuff. I was not on the banks of the St. Francis River.

    It was something, though.

    If somebody were to tell me this story, I'd think they were full of shit.

    But it happened. :worried:

    I've seen something almost identical to that. I've actually seen things that were completely unexplainable on 3 different occasions.

    One that looked like a huge ball of fire floating about 80 feet or so in the air. It had to be about 8-10 feet in diameter and was definitely under control. It would change altitudes slightly, to clear buildings/obstructions. It was quite strange.

    I've brought up my own experience maybe only two or three times before, just because it sounds like such bullshit.

    People tend to think you're nuts. I got the 'it was a helicopter' crap a lot. No idea when they started with the silent helicopters that don't require rotors. Unfortunately, the person who was actually with me on 2 of the occasions, has since passed away.

    :eek:

    i see weird stuff out there almost anytime i visit (locals collecting road tolls, speed limit signs that end with the number 5, gas prices under $1). my friend's brother lives in Caledonia, and he claims to see weird, paranormalish stuff going on around there too, but he's an idiot so i never pay attention to what he's saying.

    I guess seeing a UFO is more believable than seeing a ghost. No UFO's here in the big city. Too many lights. Too many people. And too many flying objects.

    I have never seen a UFO video that would have me think they are a real phenomenon. My opinion is that the aircraft are the work of governments and the threat of "alien" invasion will be used by those governments to scare the population into submission.
