First of all, I've just found out about this sight and am excited about what I will encounter moving forward.
I had an experience with a UFO and have only told close friends and family. This happened while serving in the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. It was the winter 2004 or possibly early 2005. I never thought to record the exact date. We were staying out near a village in one of their compounds and also guarding a mortar detection device on a nearby hill. One night, while relieving my fellow soldiers at the guard post I was told that there was a UFO hovering above the mountains. The mountains were many miles away and there it sat. Too high and too bright to be a person on the top holding a flashlight. It was merely a bright ball of light. It hovered there for over an hour and I stared at it the entire time. I considered, at the time, that it could be a helicopter, but we often knew exactly when those would be coming out. Also they normally came during the daytime with supplies and escorted. It wasn't a star because it was too bright compared to the other stars. After an hour or so it abruptly fell out the sky and dimmed as it did so. It didn't appear to drop behind the mountain. It's very difficult to explain how it dropped, but it did just that. We never saw it before or after that one night. It has burned in my memory so well that I couldn't tell you what the mortar detecting device looked like, but I know exactly what the did and it's appearance.
