I am a ((deleted)) in Turkish Armed Forces based down south in a city called Mersin (TURKEY) which is 30 min away from the famous (ADANA)Incirlik AFB by car. I 've believed in UFOs since I was a little kid. I follow the press, internet, web sites and all other publications about UFOs. My hobby is watching the skies on clear nights when all the stars are out there. Last night was one of those nights and I was at the rooftop of our building smoking one last cigarette before going to bed and watching the skies as usual. Suddenly something filled my thoughts. I felt it with all my nerves. I said to myself "something's about to happen". I started watching with a higher attention and at first I saw two shooting stars. For some reason I knew that the show wasn't over yet and I kept looking. Then it happened appr. 5 mins later and it happened right in front of my eyes. This one round light (10X bigger then a regular star) drew an S in the sky. I just saw this thing...light make that S very fast and dissappear. I am an Aircraft Operations Agent in real life, military service is still mandatory in my country and I'm doing my 18 months of service here in Mersin since April 2000. I used to work for USAF in Istanbul (my home town) Ataturk Intl. Airport. I know a lot about aviation and I can tell for sure that it wasn't a plane or another flying object made by humans. I haven't told anybody what I've seen. People who don't believe in UFO's (actually I think they're way to scared to accept their existance)laugh at others who believe and even see them. I don't even know reporting this will do any good but at least I feel better sharing this with someone who believes. I wish I live long enough to see the truth being shared with the public. P.S: I am also a big fan of Zecheria Sitchin...His studies about the Sumerian tabletes are very interesting.
