|Many sightings over years
This has happened on many ocassions to me and my step-brother. I think the reason that we see the same sightings quite often is because we are star gazers. I couldn't possibly count how many crafts I have seen, but I know it would be over 50. I just now found this site, so I thought I would report my sightings that I have had over the years. The first time I seen these ufo's was when I had just got a brand new telescope for christmas in Hawaii. I decided to take it out the night I got it to look at the moon. I was amazed by the detail I could see with the telescope, and I even got to see Saturn behind the moon. After I had my fun with looking at the moon and Saturn, I was packing up the telescope pieces and loosening the scope positioner. I looked up for a second to just gaze at the stars and wonder whats out there, when I seen a light, which I thought may have been an airplane at first. I stared at it for a while waiting to see the lights blink, but it never happened. I continued to watch as it went further and further. I called to my Step-brother to come look at what I was seeing. He was amazed by it also, and we both noticed that it seemed to be slowing down. It slowed down to where it looked like it was not moving at all, and then made about a 90 degree turn and headed south of the island of Oahu. After about 30 seconds it sped up, and left nothing but a streak of light across the sky that laster for about 2 seconds. We were both stunned by this, and talked about it the whole night we stayed up.
We have also had an ocassion where a number of people seen what we spotted. One night one of our neighbors were having a party for their friends daughter's birthday, and me and by step-brother were told to come over. We hung out by the trampoline, and talked with all the other teens there. We ended up getting on the topic of UFO's some how, and that led me to tell my story of what me and my step-brother had seen. After I told the story we all looked up and I noticed, out of the corner of my eye, a small-bright object going very fast. This was very different than the first one I had seen because it was more hostile. It was moving in a violent way, zig-zagging, and turning sharp. I told everyone to look to where I was pointing, which was West of Oahu. An overwhelming fear came over the crowd as they looked at the object. We continued to watch, and more gazers came out to see what we were looking at. That same night, when me and my step-brother left the party and were on our way home, we both happened to be looking north-west, when we seen what looked to be an explosion, or super nova of a star. It lasted for only a split second, but was so bright that I could still see it do to the strain it put on my eyes. We didn't have any other reports of it on the news, and I wondered why. It had to have been seen by more people than just me and my brother.
There are many more sightings of UFO's that I have seen, but they will not be described here, as there is too many to remember. I have provided the most impacting of sighting to me here in this, but if you would like to know more, e-mail me at ((e-address deleted))
