We saw a large football shaped object hovering above an apartment complex .
I had picked my 5 yr.old son up at daycare. Driving home we had to sit at a red light crossing the frwy at a bit of a downhill grade. My son sits low in the front seat. He pointed up and slightly to the right and said, "Mommy, what’s that?" I lifted my sun visor and bent forward to see what he was pointing at. We saw a large football shaped object hovering above an apartment complex. We use to live in that complex years before so, I know how big the area is there.
This object hovered above the complex and was almost the same size as a football field including bleachers space! It had a soft glow of white and no defined edges, no windows, no sound. I froze for a moment then shoved it in park, threw open my van door, and stood out on the step of the van. I looked at the truck behind us, waved at them and pointed back up at it. They too leaned down a bit to look under their visors, saw it, and they both raised their arms up to push up their visors at the same time their mouths wide open.
I looked back and it was still there and all of a sudden, I got scared and sat back in the van closing my door, looking up from inside with my son again the object sped quietly upward at an angle to the right, getting smaller. Now the size of a baseball it stopped and changed course speeding upward in the opposite direction so fast and kept going till it disappeared. Its flight path was in the shape of the letter V= (>) like this.
At that moment the light turned green we drove through and on the other side of the freeway was a field, parked along it was a man’s truck. He was in the field staring at a deer that was frozen scared staring back at him. As he inched closer, I pulled over, jumped out and yelled, "Did you see it!?" He said, "See what?" I said the ufo, it was over there above that apartment complex" He said, "In broad daylight, no?!"
He looked at me like I was nuts and I ran back to my van and drove away...I remember one thing really struck me as odd. Just before my son said, "Mommy, what’s that?" ! I had be en repeating over and over in my mind-- Turn green, turn green, turn green. When my son spoke to me it was as if he broke a trance I was in. I had felt like I had been possessed to keep my attention on the red light in the intersection, the man and the deer too. It was as if he was made to stare only at the deer. The deer was unusually frozen in its tracks. HOW COULD HE NOT SEE IT!!! unless he was in some sort of trance too. Why was my son unafected by this trance? I don’t know, maybe they didn’t think he needed to be. You know how you get a strange feeling someone is staring at you!
Well that’s the feeling that frightened me into getting back in the van. I felt like many eyes were watching me! They saw me! It has taking me years to be able to say this. Aliens from another world looked at me and only at me for that moment in time that I stood on the step of my van.
I've read many stories over the years, but none described the massive ship I saw. Please tell me if you heard of any ships as big as this one. I can’t be alone on this one.
