((This is the seventh of several of these experiences, all of which I now feel are connected. If visitors to this site have any questions I'll be glad to answer if I can. If anyone has any further information or explanation on them I'd appreciate a reply. I've copied these experiences from a past journal.))

I went for a drive one evening, down south on highway 71 and about 6 or 7 pm when I was returning, happened to glance off to my right, in the sky and noticed two light-blue colored lights, side by side, heading angle-wise toward the road ('8 oclock'). The distance between the lights, perspective-wise, was less than an inch apart, and didn't blink or flash. Also, what struck my attention had been the color...almost a neon blue. I kept an eye on the because I knew they'd soon pass across the road; however, when they got closer and I could see better what they were attached to, they began to arc south (back toward '6 oclock'). These were particularly curious because I've never seen that color blue before ~ this neon or flourescent blue is as close as I can describe it. I pulled onto the shoulder and stopped, got out and watched. THIS event scared me damn near as bad as the moon-looking orb. The object or craft was a thin rectangle, and the lights were inside either end. It looked like a big 2x4 on its widest side, and perspective-wise, about 3 feet in length if at arm's length. The lights were inside the narrow-most side, like the eyes of a hammerhead shark, only in front, not the side. ___________________________ |_*_____________________*__| Initially I assumed it was a plane but it made no sound at all...literally soundless, and as it went by, there hadn't been any more to it ~ just a simple, black (or possibly dark gray, steel color) rectangle. If it would have been a plane (and this was a low as a low flying plane could fly without dropping out of the sky, and about twice as wide as the wing span of a little charter plane), I could have seen the rivits and seams and bolts, etc. This was solid and looked seamless. It cruised at plane speed. My rationale tried to convince me this was likely some new machine that they're testing out...maybe a remote operated spy plane or something...military jets do a lot of low flying out there in that part of the city (outskirts of Bossier City)...but reality said it was doubtful...this IS Barksdale. I watched it head south at a languid speed until it was no longer visible, and gathered myself, and went home. Later, I mentioned this event to my mother, who related a similar account she'd had with the same sort of object being chased by two military jets, and it shot off out of sight. I also asked an Air Force buddy of mine if they were testing something out there and he said they weren't, it wasn't ours, and several pilots on base were all wired over it because no one knew what it was or where it came from. I found this a little hard to choke down tho, because I would think that it would've been shot out of the sky had it breezed in over an air base. He also said, tho, that we have nothing at Barksdale that could fly that low without making deafening noise, much less crashing. I would appreciate any details on this from anyone military with suggestions!! *** I have posted the other events here also. Look for: 1. MOSES LAKE WASHINGTON MARCH 23, 1995 2. SPOKANE/FORD INDIAN RESERVATION WASHINGTON APRIL 1995 3. LAKE SULLIVAN - PEND ORIELLE MOTEL APRIL 1995 4. PLAIN DEALING LOUISIANA JANUARY 1996 5. OIL CITY LOUISIANA JANUARY 1996 6. OIL CITY LOUISIANA APRIL 1996 8. PAGE-LAKE POWELL ARIZONA AUGUST 1997 There have also been a series of bizarre "injection dreams" that preceded these events, but also happened after them. Since this isn't a forum for that, I can supply details for anyone interested, or who might have a reasonable explanation; I also feel these might be connected.
