I have a credible background, I was a ((city deleted--major metro area)) auxiliary police officer for 5 yrs,I'm a graduate of the ((state deleted)) criminal justice training council @the ((name deleted)) Intermitent reserve police acadamy. I have training with the international association of healthcare safety and security. I was also an E.M.T. in NY and ((deleted--major eastern city. .My word can be considered reliable hearsay.

I was on patrol of a property in ((city deleted)), Ma, On ((street name deleted)) st. It was a very cloudy day, with large dark clouds. Storm clouds. I was always drawn to looking to the sky. I had made several patrols inside and outside, but continued to have a strange feeling. I went outside once again and for no reason I looked up. I saw a red round object hoovering in front of a storm cloud. After a few seconds it began to bob up and down then circled around the clouds. It started slow then got faster and faster. I heard no sound. I kept looking and the object, it took off into the clouds never to be seen again.
