Arc shaped object, unexplainable.

Tuesday, May 27th, 2004. 5:00AM After watching a movie on my computer, I went upstairs to the back porch to have a cigarette. I was standing, facing away from the house, looking up at a "star" which I believed to be the planet Mars because it had a reddish tint to it.

I was distracted by an object moving diagonally and downwards, coming in over the neighbor's roof to my left, possibly 1000 or so feet off the ground. At fisrt I thought it was a bat or some sort of bird. It was moving quite quickly and was about to go behind the tree in my backyard when I got a better look at it.

The object was almost translucent. It looked as though it had the texture of smoke, or a cloud, yet it retained its shape perfectly, as it flew threw the air. I would define its shape as an arc, a sort of more rounded boomerang. The object then went behind the tree, and was temporarily out of view. I saw it come out the other side, only to change direction, and head in an almost downwardly only direction.

I realized then, that what I was looking at was not a bird or bad or smoke or cloud or any terrestrial craft I have ever seen. Then the object simply disapeared.

I was, and still am, in a heavy state of panic and awe. I was in tears at the overwhelming site of the unknown. (I'm not crazy, it sounds weird, I know, but what would you do if you saw something you thought was from another world.) I will be deeply moved for the rest of my life.

It should, however, be noted, that on this same day, I watched a special on TV with my housemate about UFO's, and have read numerous books about the subject. But, I had remained more of a skeptic on the subject, and have seen dozens of shows and documenteries and yet have never seen anything this remotely unexplainable. I had always figured that if I ever saw something out of the ordinary, it would be something similar to what I have been exposed to in films and television specials, and I would have doubts in my mind about the whole experience.

I am still shaking terribly and there are shivers down my spine. I have no doubts.
