1997 : Hattiesburg, Mississippi


UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Hattiesburg, MS USA

Date: ??/??/97 CST

Description: I was in the passenger seat of a car my friend was driving. We were on Hardy st headed toward my bank. I was annoyed because the sun kept shining in my eyes and the visor thing wasn't blocking it well enough. I looked up and to my left and in the clouds I could see the sun peeking from behing the clouds. That was when I realized that the thing that was behind the clouds wasn't the sun. It was triangle shaped and was moving very slowly. It was also moving on a sort of diagnal. From low to high in a diagnal. It was way slower than a plane or a blimp or anything like that. I swear it was just almost as bright as the sun though (it was also sort of pinker(?) than the sun)....unfortunately the sun was up in the sky to my right so I knew it wasn't it.

I asked my friend in the driver's seat, "Do you see that!?!? Do you see that...it's not the SUN!"

She looked up and started to get scared.

This was in the middle of the day and the street was very busy. I think it was between 12:00 (noon) and 2:00 because There were obviously people bustling about on their lunch breaks.

Anyway, just as I shifted to get a closer look it pulsed a little. When I say pulsed I mean it sort of got brighter for just a second...maybe not even a second. It was really fast. It moved up diagnally for a few seconds and then it was gone!!! Then it completely dissapeared. Just like that. It was almost as if it just popped or something. It just wasn't there anymore! I got the distinct impression that it knew that I could see it and was actively trying to see it even more.

My friend refused to talk about it. She full on told me to "shut up!" I was very distraught. When we got to the bank I noticed a young African American woman sitting on the steps outside the entrance. She was sort of dazed and was staring up at the sky. I got out of the car and ran over to her while my friend sat by herself sulking. I asked the woman, "Did you see that!?! Up in the sky?!? The thing..." and she finished the sentance."that looked like the Sun." She gave me the exact same story I just told you. The only difference is that she was at the bank and I was in a car. That is three people that saw it so I know I'm not crazy. I stayed in Hattiesburg for a few years after that and occasionally I would run into the bank lady. We always recognized each other and we both always recounted the story. My other friend doesn't ever speak of it. In fact if she thinks I'm about to talk about it she quickly changes the subject.

All I know for sure is that it was real. It wasn't a baloon or anything lame like that. It was alive. You could tell. When you saw it you got a funny feeling inside like "this is really happening".

I don't know if this will help you but I thought maybe the bank lady might have written about it. I wanted to validate the experiance if she had. We were both really facinated and have lost touch over the years. We know what we saw though. I would recognize her in a heart beat. We had no reason to be thrown together in that experiance but we were and we appreciated each other. It happened.

Has anyone else ever described such a thing?

Color/Shape: triangle with rounded edges. It was glowing like the sun. It was more of a pinkish yellow. It must have been huge because I could clearly see it in the sky and make out its shape.

Height & Speed: It was behind clouds for a while...so how ever high that is. It was moving very slowly at first. It almost seemed like it was still (that's why I thought it was the sun). It "pulsed" once and moved diagnally up and to the left before it vanished.

TV/Radio/Press: not that I know of.
