An oval shaped spacecraft with bright lights hovered above our car on a deserted Hawaiin road, one humid night in Maui.

One night this past April, a week after Easter, my friend and I were in Maui, Hawaii. We had rented a Ford Mustang and were joyriding one humid evening after dinner. We had been all over town, ate some pineapple, and were on our way home when we decided it was too early to turn in for the night and we kept on driving. We had the top down and the system up, listening to our favorite Usher song, as sped down the road. For some reason, we turned down a road we were not very familiar with, and with each passing sign, we got a little more nervous. It was an unlit rundown road with no other cars. We knew we were miles outside of town, but we didn’t care. We were having the time of our life until the road drastically began to narrow and we passed more peculiar signs, warning against trespassing. Either we thought nothing of it or we were feeling brave that day, none the less we resumed our adventure to the lava flow and kept on driving. As she drove I was gazing at the stars. I shouted in excitement when I saw the most amazing shooting star of my life. Like a jettisoned rocket it flung across the sky, and I quickly made a wish. It began to fade, then to my surprise the star didn’t burn out, but stopped suddenly, and went back in the direction it had come from. The star got brighter and now my friend had stopped the car, and we both watched in amazement as this bright object flew across the Heavens. It was the strangest thing I had ever seen. What I had first thought was a beautiful star, had turned into a phenomenon. My friend right away shrilled “ALIENS!” As soon as she said that, a bone chilling fear ran through my body. The bright light came closer and closer and I was screaming for my friend to turn the car around and go home. The road was so narrow that it took us a while to turn around, and now it was apparent that there was what appeared to be a large, oval spacecraft headed right towards us at incredible speeds. It made a loud humming noise and had bright lights in a sparatic pattern. The! lights were very bright and some were colored. My friend was so frightened and frozen in shock that she couldn’t drive. As it came in closer the engine of the car turned off. She frantically turned it back on. I was pushing her foot on the gas petal, and as the motor revved loudly the spacecraft neared. It hovered above us for about a mile, as she drove as fast as the car would go, and I thought I was going to die. But as we neared the town the spacecraft sped out of sight. I was so relieved, but I will never be the same knowing that there is life other than us out there. We were not intoxicated or on any medication at the time. What we saw was real.
