A consciousness event? Two cylindrical shaped objects appear a day after I wished for proof of UFOs.

It's important that this report begin on the day before my sighting took place. A few weeks before my 75th birthday, I was walking my dog at about an hour after sunset and was contemplating the reality of UFOs. Although I had been a longtime believer in UFOs, I had never seen anything in the sky that I couldn't explain. The reality of me getting old was sinking in, and I started thinking that I would give anything to witness a UFO. I then looked up at the dark sky and beamed a sincere thought, something like: "If there are intelligent beings responsible for UFOs, please let me see one before I die." I then returned home and went to bed a few hours later.

The very next night, I'm out walking the dog again at around the same time as the night before. On the way home, when I was about one house away from my own, I looked up at the sky to the east-southeast. At about 70 degrees above the horizon, I saw two white, cylindrical objects with rounded ends, in close proximity to each other. The object on the left suddenly changed to an orangish color and blinked out of sight. A second later, the other object did the exact same thing; changed color and blinked out of sight. The entire sighting lasted no more than 10 seconds, so unless someone else was looking up at that same spot in the sky at the exact same moment, it's likely that I was the only witness. I guess it's possible that the objects flew out of sight so rapidly that it just seemed like they had blinked out, but I didn't see a blurry streak like one would expect to see of very fast-moving objects.

To me, it was no coincidence that after I had wished for a UFO sighting, the very next night at around the same time, I witnessed two UFOs - as if my wish had been granted.
