100% Positive they exist now!

Always laughed at people who claimed to have seen but now it just got real! My sighting happened in the middle of the afternoon on a cold but clear day. Snow and ice was still on the ground from the light dusting of snow the night before.

I had made a short trip to the grocery store to pick up a few items and on my way home I had to cut through a suburban neighborhood in order to avoid a minor traffic accident. I came to a 4 way stop sign in the middle of the neighborhood close to mine and noticed something in the middle of the street slightly to the left floating about 5 feet off the ground. The object was unclear at first until it moved directly in front of my car. At this point It was less than 6 feet from my face almost touching the hood of my car. Its movement was very aquatic like and it seemed to float like a jelly fish. It moved horizontally and vertically twice without tilting or pitching then returned back to center. It moved without effort, it had no propellers, props or blades; it had neither propulsion nor exhaust that I could see. This was not a drone! This looked biological with some type of energy about it. I can see EVERY DETAIL about it now! The entire object was between 8 to 10 inches long and maybe 5 inches wide. It protruded hair like fibers (thicker than hair) that held a type of energy that flowed through each fiber. It looked like a deep sea Jelly Benthocodon but more like a caterpillar. Both the top and the bottom were identical. (Hours of googling pics to no avail!). As it moved the fibers moved in slow motion. Everything seemed to move in slow motion at this point and I felt frozen in time.

I was in shock and I couldn’t understand what I was seeing. I kept asking myself “what the hell am I seeing” As I moved to unbuckle my seat-belt it reacted to my movement in the car. Its movement was like a posturing movement of fright of flight. As I begin to open my car door it did a nose dive towards the ground then shot strait up towards the tops of the pine trees between 100 feet & 125 feet in less than 3 seconds. I could see it clear against the blue sky! It moved horizontally with the tree line for about 50 yards then moved straight up until out of sight. It moved out of sight in less than 3 seconds. At no point did it make any noise.

Against the sunlight it had a metallic or sliver color about it. I stood in the middle of the street like an idiot yelling “I just saw an Alien”. I walked around the 4 way stop for 10 mins looking for any type of evidence of the encounter but came up empty handed. I looked around hoping someone else witnessed this but I'm sure I looked a little weird from a distance. I returned later that day to see if any surrounding homes had security cameras but no luck. Every day on my way home I cut through the same neighborhood hoping to see my caterpillar/jelly Benthocodon friend but no luck yet. This time I’ll have my phone!
