This is a great site. Thank you, Mr. Greenewald. I plan on purchasing your book sometime soon, after I catch up with my other purchases.

I should have posted this introduction before I started posting other stuff, but hey. I do things backwards sometimes.Wink 

I know that there are many various views about UFOs and extraterrestrials, ranging from the ridiculous to the not-so-ridiculous. My own views might sound rather stupid to some of you. And that's ok. 

I had my first UFO sighting somewhere around 1973 or 74 as an elementary school aged kid. This was a time period when a UFO "flap" was occurring in the US. I lived in Massachusetts, just north of Boston. One summer evening, just after sunset, my brother came running home from playing with some kids down the street.

My brother was yelling, "You got to see this thing in the sky! You got to see this thing in the sky!" Me, a couple of my sisters, ran outside into our driveway and saw nothing. The thing had evidently moved on. 

I don't remember exactly, but either the next night or a week later, it came back. This time, we all got a look at this thing. I could not make out the shape of it, since it was glowing extremely brightly. But my sister did make out a shape and drew a picture of it. I was like, "You saw that?" To me, it was about the size of a full moon and glowing so brightly that I couldn't see a shape, but she could. 

A few weeks later, the Boston Globe ran some pictures of UFOs, but the photos were not from around the Boston area, but were taken in Ohio. The shape of the craft in Ohio were similar to what my sister had seen. So this sighting got me interested in the topic and I have had various views on it ever since.

If you post a passable drawing of the UFO and a description complete enough that I can fill a decent amount of my template for that (new) type, I'll include that type in my UFO reference document, which I've been updating recently:

I had basically only one UFO sighting in my life, in total it lasted less than 10 seconds, and was very far away, so it was very unremarkable other than the seeming physics-defying (SPD) maneuvers that clearly categorized it as what I call an SPD UFO. I never had any doubt that SPDs existed, even as a kid, so it wasn't a major event for me, just a nice confirmation of what I already believed.

I still have the Globe's pictures in a book somewhere. If I can find them I will post it. Most of my books are packed away in either my attic or basement. So I might have a hard time finding them. I will try to see if I can get my sister to redraw what she saw, in case my memory isn't exactly up to snuff. If she will draw it again, I will post it. 

I had another interesting sighting approximately 10 years later at the same house. In the summer, I often used to go out on my porch at night and look at the night sky. I used to purposely look for satellites. I also liked to find certain planets and I had a good idea of where they were positioned. One night when I immediately stepped on to my porch I saw what looked like an orangey/red star. How long it had been there, obviously I had no idea. I knew right off that it couldn't be Mars since Mars was in another part of the sky at the time. Being close to Logan airport, I assumed maybe it was a plane, since many planes come toward Logan from that direction. But after several minutes went by, it hadn't budged at all. 

I was trying to figure out if this "star" was actually in the atmosphere or in space, because I couldn't really tell. Since it did not move at all, and I knew that that star was not there before that particular night, I told myself not to turn my eyes away from it, in case it does something unusual. I thought of going inside to get someone outside to see it too, in case it was a "ufo." But I didn't want to miss anything, should it move. So I decided to just keep my eyes glued to it without turning my eyes away once.

After about 10 minutes, it shot off like a bullet, leaving a reddish orange and extremely thin line, or "tail", across the sky. Within a second or two, the line it made also was gone. I had the feeling that this "thing" was super high up. Like it was in the upper atmosphere, or even in space. If I hadn't seen it in that one position for over 10 minutes or so, I might have assumed it was just a meteor. But this was faster than any meteor I have ever seen. It was really like the "star" was shot out of a gun. It didn't leave a vapor-like trail either. It was rather like someone drew a super straight line with a reddish pencil across the sky when it shot off.

Thanks, no hurry whatsoever. I might already have that shape in my document, anyway, especially if it's a simple shape.

I've heard of other UFOs leaving a trail behind, which always surprises me, since I thought their technology was better than that (no exhaust, no contrail, no fumes). I can't explain that phenomenon. It doesn't happen very often, from what I gather.
