Late Spring 1990 : Whirlpool State Park, Niagara Falls, New York

Whirlpool State Park Niagara Falls, N.Y. UFO Comes Out Of Devils Hole

Date: Late Spring 1990.
Time: Dusk.

Location of Sighting: Whirlpool State Park Niagara Falls.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Circular.

Full Description of event/sighting: Me and my buddy were in the gorge near Devils' Hole getting ready to start heading up, it was almost dark. Three lights spinning slowly in a circle drifted out from over the whirlpool in the gorge. One green, one white, one red. The lights instantly start spinning in a circle at a tremendous rate creating a ring of white light. The light illuminates the sides of the gorge, trees, water. The light from the ring was so bright you could not see the top of the spacecraft, but as it rose slowly up past the top of the gorge I could see a dome-like silhouette against the fading light of the sky.

The spacecraft rose a few hundred feet above the trees, then proceeded to put on a little show. In the blink of an eye it flew away, back, away up, back, over here, over there hundreds of miles at each turn, in perfectly straight lines. It was completely and totally silent. It did this no less than 12 times, probably closer to fifteen, leaving a white streak of a light trail in my mind that I will not forget. It then came back to the same exact location that it started above the top of the trees, then proceeded out of our atmosphere on a gentle arc at a slow (relatively) speed that left a orangish light trail across the sky. The light was not actual but the best my eyes could interpret the speed of the spacecraft jetting out into space.

The whole event lasted about 10-15 seconds. It wasn't a weather balloon, a hoax, an "object", or anything anyone on this planet built in recent history. I looked at my buddy and asked "Did you see that?" He said "Yep" That's all the validation I needed. I didn't even look over at him to see if he had seen it while it was happening, I was fixed on the spacecraft. We never thought to tell anyone for some reason. Maybe alien brain washing, or knowing that not too many people would believe (this was way back in the 90's before ufo's were popular). I saw a show about an Arizona sighting tonight and it made me think of it. I might have seen a helicopter fly by while this was happening, it would be cool if the pilot or passengers saw it too. I checked the papers the next day and there was no mention. Aliens visit planet Earth.
