Right over the top of me and so close I may have been able to hit it with a rock

Over the years, I have told only family and friends about my sighting. After just seeing a show about a UFO sighting in 2000 in Illinois by some guy and 4 police, I have to share this with people who are actually interested in this sort of thing as I’ve always felt I should have documented it some how.

I grew up in south Florida but have lived in another state for over 20 years. I am a 47 year old professional and I am an outdoor enthusiast. I am in to nature and have always had a keen awareness of my environment and surroundings.

Twenty nine to thirty years ago I saw a huge wedge shaped object fly directly over me in Coral Springs FL. At a very late hour, 1 AM, 2 AM or somewhere there about, after dropping a friend off, I was east bound on Sample Rd and was stopped at a red light at Coral Hills Dr. Back then, populations were less and there were no other cars on the road. While sitting at the light, it was like it came out of nowhere but suddenly appeared over the tree tops heading due south at about a block west of University Dr which was one block east. It was so low that a shot from a shotgun would have easily hit it. It was so long I leaned onto the passenger seat and could see the bottom as it came over, but then sat back up and could still see it on the driver’s side and it moved slow at maybe 30 mph. It probably took at least 30 seconds to pass completely over me. It got about a mile ahead of me by the time the light changed and I could run up and turn south on University. It never seemed to speed up but gradually got further as I kept catching red lights and after several miles, I stopped following and turned around but noticed it appeared to be starting to turn toward Ft Laud airport. That fact has always made me question what I absolutely know I saw.

I have always described it as being as long a football field and wedge shaped. Like on the TV show it was an elongated triangle shape. It had the 3 white lights, one in each corner, and the red flashing light rear of center. It was not black like in the 2000 sighting. It was more gray color and I remember it having what looked like steel plating. It made NO noise what so ever and I don’t remember the lights being overly bright. It was fairly pointed at the front and about as wide as a four lane road with a median. I remember the rear once it passed over was thick or tall (it had huge mass) but I don’t remember it being lit across the rear. It had no wings and the fact that I could hear nothing as it passed over still makes no sense to me. Another thing that’s always made me question my own eyes was the tree tops didn’t sway or bend what so ever, but as close as it was I’ve always thought there should have been at least a breeze if not wind.

I’ve never stopped having a hard time believing what I saw that night until seeing that show on the 2000 sighting in Illinois. The descriptions and 3D images were so similar, I got goose bumps while watching and it felt like I was seeing my experience all over again. All these years I’ve wished I would see one again to prove to myself I wasn’t nuts and that TV show was like I was seeing it again. That show ended by noting secret military craft stay secret usually around 10 years. Well, like I said in the beginning, I saw mine 29 to 30 years ago so maybe I did see what I saw.


Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
