My wife, son and neighbor saw a UFO close up hovering above them. I was there, but in the woods, they were in a clearing.
I saw one (it's lights) directly above me and clear as can be for over ten minutes. My wife myself and two friends saw it along with HUNDREDS (maybe thousands) of other people in our area. An employee of mine saw it along with many others from the mall. I was on the lake on my boat. It made the news in a nearby city. It was silent, and was several lights in a triangle formation. We were trying to figure out what these stationary lights were, thinking it was several different objects. Then it rotated and slowly headed off to the south. I was shocked to realize it was all one object and how HUGH it was. No blimps were in the area, military had nothing in the area, we got the old “maybe it was a weather balloon” nonsense.
There is NO DOUBT, UFOs (unidentified flying objects) exist! What they are and who might be piloting them, I have no clue.
Read the book _Alien Intrusion_ by Gary Bates.
Many people try to force such things into a preconceived mold or a popular narrative, whether they fit or not. It's hard for many people to live with uncertainty.
The MSM tends to conceal such reports as resolutely as they conceal unwelcome information about their favorite political candidates.
One of the most interesting was a report from Peru several decades in which a member of the Peruvian Army, on maneuvers, went to investigate lights in the distant mountains and returned a few hours later, confused and with a several days' growth of beard on his face.
To jump to conclusions about such unexplained phenomena is silly--especially to deny outright the veracity of such reports.
