It moved back and forth up and down covering more miles in a split sec than anything man-made i have ever seen.

It was a nice night in mid october 1993, a friend and i were just out for a ride to enjoy the autumn air in his car, which was a convertible by-the-way. We pulled over and had parked in a popular parking spot in a small town called stanley which is placed right on the ohio river. We had been parked maybe 5 minutes and i was resting my head back on the headrest watching the night sky over the ohio river looking in the direction of north-west..of this I am positive. I saw a glowing round light that seemed to dim and bright in a repeating pattern. The color of this light was whiteish to light bluish in color. I thought i t was a plane at first but soon realized by its movements that it couldn't be. Then i said to myself it is a helicopter... but soon realized that the distance it was covering in what seemed like a millioneth of sec that it wasnt. I told my friend to look and he saw it too. I don't know how to describe it... but this object seemed to be reading my mind moving in directions that i was telling it to go. It took 10 minutes for me to KNOW it wasn't anything manmade it moved to quickly and efficiently... i had treetops on the opposite side of the river to base distance on it was not quite as far away as the stars but not as low as conventional aircraft fly, but way above the treetops. We watched for another 20 minutes or so, before i got scared and asked to be taken home, I also had him close the top on the convertible. Once home in thruston southeast of where i first spotted the object, I looked in the sky and saw it again but more to the southeast of me and over a rural area not the river anymore... it was still pretty far away... I was spooked told my friend bye and went in the house. I went to a psychiatrist over this who dismissed it and tried to put me on medicine for it... i found this funny....and maddening. But 9 years later in late january of 2002 I saw the same object again. I was married at the second sighting it was like 4 am in the morning and my husband was leaving for work.

we live in a small community less than a 1/4 of a mile away from the ohio river and it seemed to be in the location that i saw it in 9 yrs. previously. I was very scared locked the house down made sure all blinds were closed. I don't know how describe the feeling of it being able to sense my thoughts. I told a fieman friend of mine about it several hours later and he said not to feel strange others have seen these things. Incedentally i called the airport after the first sighting in 1993 the next morning but they had no reports of anything strange.

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. We believe that celestial bodies would have to be ruled out, before we could conclude that the objects spotted were UFO's. We do not know what the witness observed. PD))
