UFO over Flint, Michigan 1991
The time is pretty close, I think... but the date is just a guess. I shared an upstairs bedroom with my brother Sam. To better understand the stoty I have to describe the bedroom. It was the entire 2nd floor. About 12'x24' with windows at either end lengthwise, 2 in the main "room" and one at the end withthe stiarcase. My brother and I were staying up late one summer night watching tv, playing video games etc. in our room. I remember that a box fan was running in the lone window near the stairs to cool the room down, so that may account for the humming noise I remember but I'm pretty sure the ufo we saw was humming. Anyway we were up late and fianally going to bed. Our beds we on either side of the double windows. As I was falling asleep I noticed colored lights outside. I got up and looked outside the open windows and saw what I thought was a helicopter hovering about 10 feet above and between our house and the next door neighbors. I woke up my brother and told him to check out this cool helicopter because we were both really into anything that flew. As we watched this thing I realized right away that it was not a chopper because there was no rotor wind and it wasn't making noise except for the humming (could've been the fan). Then I started to get a feel for the size of this thing. It looked as though it was only 10-15 feet above the house but it covered an area at least 30' in diameter maybe more. I also noticed two rings of lights on the craft. The inner circle of lights were a very dim white or yellowish color, and the outer ring had different colors that seemed to shift in sequence. The lights were very dim all over the craft. We watched it for nearly a 1min. before I noticed Chris our neighbor, looking out his window at the ufo. Right then the craft took off. Slowly at first it turned about 180 degrees and then it was gone. I've told a few of my friends about this and have been laughed at. I figured that I was nuts. But two Christmas's ago, my brother brought it up after dinner. I! was in shock! But he remembers it the same. Has anyone else reported ufo's in the Flint area?
Date is approximate. PD
