Location: West Palm Beach, FL, USA

Shape: Disk
Characteristics: Lights on object

A beam of light that resolved into 40 to 50 flying disks, outside of our atmosphere, with stars seen through their formation.

I was in West Palm Beach, at the Hilton on Singer Island, for a very important job interview, the next morning. Myself and three others were interviewed to be the executive team to start a hotel chain for the King of Saudi Arabia.

I was alone that night as my room partner had his own evening plans. He was also one of the interviewees.

I went down the beach about 1/2 mile to a restaurant and had a beer at the bar. I only finished half of it because I didn’t want any chance of effects the next morning. I walked back down the beach to the hotel, which was right on the beach. Our room opened to the beach. I sat in the sand to think and gather thoughts about the interview. I was staring at the ocean when I saw what looked like one of those search lights that you see crossing the sky, shining out from the horizon. I thought there must be a ship with a light out beyond the horizon. But then the beam of light broke off from the horizon and traveled toward me and land. It was now a beam of light flying along by itself. I watched it approach and as it did the beam resolved into disks, as it got closer. I presumed the light was from the crafts reflecting the suns light from around the globe.

As they approached I was able to see about 40 to 50 disks flying in a group sort of formation. As they approached land the formation changed to two lines with ships within the lines, and turned south. There was about eight large ships and the rest smaller...about 1/4 the size of the larger. I could see the stars through the formation. These crafts appeared to be in space, not in our atmosphere.

As they flew overhead I saw one of the smaller disks fly to or into one of the bigger ships. When the formation reached over land they turned south as if to follow the beach south. They continued south and as they did, they changed back into the wider pack formation. Their resolution faded back into a glowing beam and they disappeared south.

Right about the time they were passing overhead my room mate got back. I could hear him and so I shouted for him to come quickly. He did but not in time to see any more than the beam of light traveling south.

This was a crystal clear, warm night. What I saw was clear as could be and there was no mistaking what I was looking at. My demeanor was calm, sober and totally clear headed. What I saw changed my life. I’ve never had any doubt as to what I saw and the memory hasn’t faded. I reported it to a group who’s name was an anagram from Ohio. Teroco? Or something like that. I also did a report on the Sci-Fi Channel website, around that time.

I’d love to hear from someone about the sighting.
