My Sighting Submission : Let me start of by saying that I am quite the UFO enthusiast and have been facsinated with anything UFO related since I was a little kid. I got a call at about 12:05am from my friend jessica, who was over at her boyfriend David's house with several of my other friends. They told me that her, and everyone at the house at the time had been out watching UFOs for a few minutes now. I was ecstatic and went to go wake my parents. I got my dad up and outside to come search the sky.
We spotted in the south-eastern sky a strobing light. It seemed to be high altitude, although admitadly i'm not too good at judging altitude.
I've seen planes strobe lights and this was different. This very bright, and not moving. It started to strobe at a faster and faster pace until it would flash once very brightly (Enough to light up a good bit of the sky), dissapear, and then to my amazement re-appear in another part of the sky with another big flash, After the big flash it began slowing its bright white blinking to the rate it was at before.
At this point I decided I had to go get my mom, as my dad didnt want me to wake her up the first time. When her and I got back downstairs I walked out of my garage just in time to see it dissapear with another white flash and reapear with another white flash. At one point the first one flashed bright once, another one showed up, and flew near the first at a high rate of speed, pulling off a sharp turn torwards it. The second one was reddish, but still flashed white sometimes.
It was the most incredible thing I have ever seen. After a good half hour of putting on what seemed to be some kind of show they started moving south in dissapearing, re-apearing zig zag patterns, until they got too far to see. I wish i had some kind of video camera, as I would love to watch it over and over again. It was amazing, and yet kind of creepy at the same time.
I have several witnesses, and my friend John says he saw police officers and civilian spectators looking up into the sky in a convienence store parking lots on his way home. I have not yet called the Madison Police Department to confirm this.
I did however call the air traffic control tower at huntsville international airport and asked them if they had any sightings or blips and they just told me that air traffic control doesnt track anything that they arent expecting. I kindly asked him to ask someone who was there the night it happened, but the guy there didnt see anything. I guess they dont look at the radar screen unless a planes coming in. Have you guys gotten any sightings like this? Can you refer me to some video clips that contain a similar sighting? Do you get many sightings like this? Mail me anytime, and I dont care about anonymity. If you wish to speak to any of the other witnesses via phone E-mail me. I watched the news the next day and apparantly the media didnt get wind of it, so I really want this one to get out. Thanks you for your time.
UFOINFO thanks Dave Ledger and UFO Scotland for passing on this sighting report.
