January/February 1997

Humarock, Massachusetts Large Bright Pink Sphere

Date: January (possibly February) of l997
Time: 11:30 p.m.

As to the other sighting, it happened in January (possibly February) of l997. It was the first UFO sighting I have had. (The second was the one I just described.) Nothing since then as I don't get out much at night (!) (I have a feeling if I did, I would have seen a few more by this time.)

This one was interesting to me because I have read (on either links from the Rense site or maybe in the monthly information on your site posted to Jeff's) of the same sighting from two different sources.

Two different women, unknown to each other and probably still unaware of each other's sighting saw what sounds like the same UFO I saw. (Unfortunately, I wouldn't begin to know where I came across either sighting but I'm quite sure I read them in two different places and they weren't the same sighting.)

This UFO seemed very close (maybe 100 feet away is my guess.) I was driving across a small bridge at 11:30 p.m. as I always did, after a long day's work and was about five minutes from the house.

Just as I was almost across the bridge, a large bright pink sphere (of what looked like glowing gases - the way the sun might look close up, like a circle filled with helium) caught my attention out the driver's window. I remember hearing myself exclaim out loud, "What's that?" while I put my foot on the brake and rolled down the window simultaneously for a closer look. As I did so, the ball of pink gases shot straight up into the clouds ( I noticed the pink reflection on them) and disappeared. I'm guessing the entire sighting lasted about eight seconds.

The same pink sphere is what I think the other two women I mentioned may have seen. I remember it vividly. There was no haze around it and it had a solid circumference. It was about the size of my fist at arm's length and was stationary about 30 degrees above the water before it took off rapidly straight up after I noticed it. The night was pitch black save for the cloud layer higher up which the glowing sphere passed though as it disappeared.)

I think it was a few weeks (shortly before or after) that that the island had lost electricity one night but it could easily have been due to a winter storm (high winds) as the area is a bit remote, especially in the winter. (It's actually pretty much one large sand spit with a couple hundred summer cottages.)

Thank you to the witness for the report.
