This is not an untrue personal statement as I witnessed what I believe to be an intelligent subset of life.

While walking down the street something appeared in my peripheral vision. Something was glowing to my right and this illumination was about 30 feet in the air. As soon as my vision settled on the clump of mass, and my vision is ultra clear and good at distance viewing, the glowing orange yellow fire transformed into a ball object about basketball sized. This ultra fast change appeared to be through a small explosion. There was no shockwave or noise. All of this happened in approximately 1.5 seconds. 100% quick rings then traveled across the front of the house. This is what that ball changed in to. It seemed the rings emerged simultaneously as the ball emerged and exploded from the growing clump of mass. The rings were 3 or more feet in size and they kept their shape as they flashed and strobed. They went from the street to the roof area of the house in what appeared to be a tiny sliver of time. I was still able to track these parts through time. These ring forms then combined into a single perfectly circular disk about 4 feet across. This object was reveled to me in its unobstructed entirety. I had a full frontal view of this disk. It was stationary at the roof area of the house and perfectly circular. It's coloration was off-white. The object was not empty. I saw shadows within. They were about 2 feet long and narrow. The sides of these shadowy objects were wavy. There was not a flicker of movement as this disk levitated in front of me. I gazed at it for approximately 2 seconds. It then left my field of vision on a vanish. It did not fade away or streak into the sky under some discernable propulsive power. This single series of unique events occurred in the sequence I report. The specific moments and incidents occurred at that time and place. The events that happened will be remembered. For the remainder of my life I will have a blast of total remote recall. It will be remembered vividly. On that morning something alien fully entered my consciousness. Something unc! anny and mysterious inserted itself into my consciousness.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and he seemed quite sincere. We received a large-scale map from the witness, which indicates where the object was sighted at a corner on 35th Avenue. PD))
