I hear you. One night, the Summer before last, during a camping trip deep into the wilderness I saw a incredible glowing green orb shoot out of a remote canyon, zig zag in the sky across the hillside in front of me then dive back into the canyon. I experienced an "immediate reaction of incredulity and mockery" when I told my family and co-workers about it. I have learned to keep my mouth shut about such things.
What’s left unsaid is sometimes best left unsaid;
I’ll leave it at that.
Since you are a freeper....I would tend to believe you if you told me that you saw something like that. You saw something any way. People tend to try to interpret at the same time they listen to observational data or hear it related to them and thus the immediate reaction of mirth and
skepticism. To listen without immediately attempting to interpret the data according to ones own preconceived notions actually opens the door to more further truth!
Being a freeper already gives you an aura of rational mindedness, so if you told me in all seriousness you say you saw a green orb, then I will believe you...though in truth given the humorous ways freepers will joke with each other, I will still be wary of the punch line!
I saw something not quite as spectacular but equally unexplainable. You know how if you look up at the stars on a clear night, sometimes you’ll see what looks like a star except that it is steadily traveling across the night sky in a straight line—and you know it’s a satellite. I saw something that also looked like a faint star moving, except that instead of traveling in a straight line it was darting back and forth at very sharp angles, and moving extremely fast. No idea what it was, but that kind of zig-zagging, right-angle movement seems to be a pretty common trait in these sightings.
