Just Another UFO Sighting?

Updated on July 18, 2012

Tonight while staring into a star filled sky, I saw a (n) UFO. Many of my night time walks with my dog have resulted in my observation of some object floating through the sky that doesn’t appear to me of earthly origin. Therefore it is unidentified making my first statement quite logical.

Cold, winter nights often bring forth brilliant stars and stellar activity as I stand shivering awaiting my dog to complete his nightly business. It was one such night just last winter that I spied a brilliant orb hovering in the heavens above. The object was brighter than all other stars in that particular piece of space acreage. As my mind wandered in thought the brilliant orb flickered then faded to black. It happened and I saw it happen yet I asked myself over and over again if I had actually seen anything at all or was my imagination playing tricks on me. Though I looked night and again, that presentation never reoccurred.

Tonight as I stood in the semi-illuminated darkness lit by fellow campers and a small shopping center near the RV Park where my rig was parked, I again waited patiently for my dog to finish rolling in the damp grass. At the point where streetlights meet darkness, my eyes caught a glimmer of movement. There not more than thirty feet above me and some hundred yards to the West, a rectangular shape barely glowing from within floated by. The glow was so faint I had to strain to see and what I saw was translucent. If I had not been looking right at it, I would have missed it entirely. It flew by in a straight line until it reached the fence line of the park and then turned in a Northerly direction making no sound whatsoever.

The object I was trying desperately to see disappeared behind nearby buildings. I stayed outside longer than usual trying to locate the object or perhaps another one to no avail. In my coach as I considered all possibilities within my limited imagination, I determined I had seen a great night bird of some nature. I was after all in Northern California where great birds like the Eagle and Condor are known to nest. Perhaps it was a night owl seeking prey or a vulture lugging its carrion home.

Meeting an alien doesn’t frighten me in the least. In fact, I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to represent our planet to this most foreign of dignitaries. Seems many of the purported contacts made whether fictional or…have been in remote farmlands far from scholars and scientific venues. Any alien that can travel light years through space to find their way to my front door would also be able to…I imagine find their way to some of the most respected minds and facilities available on Earth. Why would they seek out remote areas of our planet?

What I saw tonight also brings up the question of all the many reported sightings. Most seem to report brightly flashing lights of varying degrees of color. My UFO seemed to have a translucent nature with a small reddish glow from within. What I saw could easily have been reflection of street lamps on a winged creature…who knows? Point is, if I had witnessed a (n) UFO, mine didn’t have brightly flashing lights at all. The alien of my imagination would enter our atmosphere stealthily. It wouldn’t be announcing its presence with bright lights and musical tones. It would sneak in, take a look around and then maybe run down to a remote area to record and study the data before seeking out the greater minds of our nation.

My alien has the science, the materials and the knowledge to travel millions of miles across the universe. It has abilities so advanced that anything we could offer would be moot. Why then would any creature from outer space travel all the way over here when there really isn’t much for them to gain? No, my alien probably did stop by some years ago…perhaps they met with the missing link or watched the great pyramids being built. Maybe back in ’47 they stopped by yet again only running into the wrong people on a remote farm in New Mexico. With the reception they received then, why would they even consider returning?

Exploration runs in our blood. Finding answers to unanswered questions is what we are all about and have been for thousands of years. Someday we may conquer the mysteries of space. It won’t happen in my lifetime. But it certainly is fun to imagine what it would be like to meet my alien…someday.

      Isn't it amazing when you're away from city lights how much you see in the sky? Some of those weird lights in the sky do make you question. Good hub.
