Daylight Cigar shaped UFO sighting, with Witness!

What you are about to read is quite unbelieveable. But I swear on my familys life that what I say is true and even have a witness whom saw exactly what I did.. And it changed my life forevermore...

The year was 86. I was 17.

My friend and I were driving on a rural country road/hwy, just outside the town of Louisville KY on a fine clear summer day.

The time was about 4:30pm. I was riding shotgun and enjoying the nice country drive when something caught my attention through the corner of my eye off to the left of the highway. I noticed something large hovering over a wooded area about a quarter mile away. At first I thought "what in the world is that?" It was a silvery metallic cigar shaped craft that was probably at least a hundred feet long. It was in a vertical position, just hanging there motionless maybe a hundred feet above the treetops.

I pointed this curiosity out to my friend who was just as puzzeled as I.

I figured it must be a weather ballon or something like that.

But...I have never seen anything even re similar in appearance in my 17 years of life. There were no appendages, wings, motors, rotors, windows, Nothing! It was a solid metallic shape that reflected the suns rays brilliantly.

My friend and I were looking at the object trying to figure out what it was, when, in the blink of an eye it was gone! I was quite excited and scared.

Eagerly we scanned the skies around where it had been, looking for it, but it was nowhere to be found. Maybe 30 seconds later, while looking on the OTHER side of the expressway from where it had been, I saw it hanging there motionless again.

Yelling "there it is!" I pointed to my friend where it was, and we both watched it for several seconds. Then, right before our very eyes, it disappeared slowly, as if it was cloaking, or dematerializing.

It just faded out to nothing. It did not move away. It just disappeared.

We were speechless. I told family and friends but no one believed me, even with my friend as witness.

I cannot describe how I felt, but know that this event convinced me to research what I saw, and over the years I have found much. Having seen this firsthand, I have opened my eyes to accept what others cannot.

Many people have seen exactly what I have, all over the world.

I don't know what it was that I saw, but it was broad daylight when we saw it, so there is no questionable night time issues here.

In my opinion this was no government secret project/craft.

1. The technology was far too advanced.

2. The speed used would have broken a humans neck, or the G forces involved would have been impossible for a human to withstand.

3. As far as I know , no government on earth has craft cloaking/dematerializing abilities.

This has bothered the hell out of me for 20 years. It could be a government project, but I seriously doubt it.

Having seen what I have, I honestly believe we are being visted by beings from another world. Before I die, my one wish in this world is to truly know what I saw.
