I saw a cluster of lights darting back and forth in the sky, in manner unlike any modern aircraft is capable of.

I think I witnessed the same sighting as reported on this website by someone else. I will never forget what happened, but as I was the only witness in my vehicle, I tried to dismiss it, but I can't, I marked down the date and time, so that if anything ever came out in the future, I would know I wasn't nuts. After watching a UFO show on TV, I decided it was time to do research and see if anyone else reported what I had seen. I know what time it was because I looked at my watch, so I would always know what time it happened. I had 3 sightings or encounters in that month, and nothing ever again. This was the first.

I was driving SE on highway 270 between the former Morse RD and 670 exits, on my way home from my mother's house, there were several other cars out at the time, as I was driving, something caught my eye up to my right at about 1 o clock. It was a round cluster of lights, red blue green and white, from what could see, I couldn't make out an object clearly just a cluster of lights in a circular pattern, what caught my eye was the movement pattern. It was hovering in a spot and it would dart to one driection then another, like center, then down right, then down left then back up to the hover point. I have never seen any man made machine capable of such quick and precisely executed movements. It looked like a pinball, being shot back and forth, though it hoved a bit at each ending point. I pulled over immediately to make sure I was seeing what i thought. I sat there in awe, watching it dart back and forth so fast and in a way that defied normal flight, no helicopter etc could have moved that way, and it covered large distances in a so called flash. I looked at my watch to verify the time. I was terrified. i saw 2 other vehicles pull over during that time, i assume they had seen what i saw, but i was scared so i pulled back on the freeway and drove on home. I finally got the nerve to look online and see if anyone else saw this.

A the next night , i was spending the night at my mothers in this same area, when something equally odd happened. I was in my little sisters room and we couldn't sleep, so we were talking. suddenly the room started to shake as if vibrated by some huge motor and the room started to glow red-orange, brighter and brighter, like the light was coming through the window. We heard a loud whirring metallic sound, like screeching metal that sounded like it had a pattern, almost like music. we were terriified, and it lasted for several minutes, the light kept changing, like it was in a search pattern, but the noise level remianed the same. my sister and i sat staring at one another, afraid to say anything, finally when the light went down a little i jumped up and looked out the window, i had to know what it was, i knew if i didn't look, someone could try to discount me. But after what i saw the night before, i had to know. The glow was coming form directly over our house and also from the woods behind it, there was more than one source, i think the metallic "music" must have come from the one overhead, explaining why the volume never changed, but the light did. I am convined it wasn't a police helicopter or anytthing, i have seen them before. I have never seen one with orange light. I never saw any craft of any sort, just the glow from above and the woods, obviously i couldn't see what was over the roof, i thought about popping the screen and sticking my head out her window but I was too scared. It wasn't anyhting like the night before's sighting. But my mom lives in the same area where i had seen the lights the night before. i honestly believe the "glow" the following night came from government craft, possibly tracking or searching for the object from the night before in the woods behind her house.

Strange radio frequency's can be picked up sometimes late at night out there, that have the same sound as i had heard that night, though never on the same channel twice in a row. And no it isn't static. My sis and i heard somehting one night that sounded like German and spanish mixed together, being spoken too rapidly for anyone to understand, no music. I really don't know what else to say. I have no pics or anything, don't even know if this is usefull. I don't live there anymore, nor have i ever related this story before, but it feels good to get it out of my system.

My sister saw and heard the same thing I did. I have never seen or heard anyhting else.
