No noise from disc like object
I have recently come to realize that when I was a young boy (10ish) I saw what I believe was not or could not be of earthly origins. I have been looking around off and on to see if anyone else did too. I am glad to have found this site. Be that as i may… Here it is.
My family vacationed at Hampton Beach N.H. pretty much every year during 4th of July week to watch/partake in the city funded fireworks display. This year was kind of special to me because "The Commodores" were playing at the boardwalk that year. As luck would have it, I had the opportunity to watch them perform some of their tunes despite the fact that the venue was a 21 plus, ticket in hand establishment. I sneaked in and watched until they kicked me out.
On the night that I saw this object…. I remember it was a few days before the fourth at around 8 pm to 9 pm. A typical thing we would do after dinner and boardwalk arcade fun is walked the long stretch of beach. With shoes in hand walking a southerly direction on the cold wet sand, the object in question seemed to kind of appear just a few hundred feet out and a few hundred feet over the ocean. As it moved in the same direction as us its velocity was maybe three or four times the pace we kept. It seemed to effortlessly float along past us. It was disc shaped and very dark on the bottom like it was devoid or less than there if that makes any sense. It had lights that were rotating around it in a clockwise direction at a pace that seemed to match its forward velocity. Well not like a bunch of lights. More like one wide light that can only be described like a windshield wiper that leaves a dissipating light trail behind it as it moves forward. I was confused by this point. I! clearly remember questioning what I was seeing and my older siblings dismissing it as a balloon or a helicopter or a blimp or a blah blah blah. I also clearly remember saying that it can't be any of that because there was no noise coming from it; Why cant we hear it? Where are the engines? even blimps have engines!! If there is one thing that makes me believe that I saw what I think I saw is the lack of noise it made. Even to this day I get freaked out thinking about how it made absolutely no noise.
Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
