Crystal clear view of object-very mechanical and unimaginably fast.

WHILE WATCHING TV, MY BROTHER SITTING BY THE WINDOW JUMPED UP QUICKLY AND LOOKED OUT THE WIDOW IN DISBELIEF. HE SAID, EXCITEDLY, THAT HE NOTICED A BRIGHT LIGHT IN THE LARGE BEAN FIELD SITUATED BEHIND OUR HOME. HE SAID THAT HE SAW IT RISE SLIGHTLY AND THEN COME TOWARD OUR HOUSE AT AN INCREDIBLE SPEED AND THAT IT WAS WELL LIT. HE THEN SAID THAT IT SEEMED TO FLY OVER OUR HOUSE. CURIOUS, I LEAD HIM OUTSIDE THE FRONT DOOR TO SEE IF WE COULD GET A GLIMPSE OF IT COMING OVER OUR HOUSE. THE SKY WAS CRYSTAL CLEAR AND I SAW NOTHING--I THOUGH MAYBE HE HAD WITNESSED A HELICOPTER RISE OUT OF THE FIELD. SUDDENLY, WHEN LOOKING BACK TOWARD THE HOUSE WE BOTH WITNESSED ANOTHER CRAFT, CYLINDRICALLY SHAPED WITH LIGHTS ON IT COME FLYING UP OVER OUR HOME FROM THE SAME DIRECTION (THE REAR OF OUR HOUSE). I ESTIMATE THAT THE VEHICLE WAS APPROX. 1 TO 2 MILES HIGH AND A BIT LARGER THAN A CITY BUS. I DO NOT KNOW IF IT WAS ANOTHER CRAFT OR THE SAME ONE CIRCLING AROUND OR SOMETHING. I CAN TELL YOU THIS-IT FLEW SO QUICKLY TO A POINT ABOVE OUR HOUSE THAT IT WAS MIND BOGGLING-IT LEFT A LIGHT TRAIL AND AMAZINGLY STOPPED, I MEAN LIKE, INSTANIOUSLY--SO QUICKLY THAT YOU WOULD THINK THAT THE OCCUPANTS WOULD HAVE BEEN THROWN THROUGH THE WINDOW. IT HOVERED ABOVE US FOR A FEW MOMENTS, AS IF IT WERE OBSERVING US AND THEN IT ARCHED UPWARD THE RIGHT OF THE MOON AND FLEW AWAY AT A SPEED UNIMAGINABLE. LITERALLY THE SPEED OF LIGHT. WE WATCHED IT TWINKLE OUT OF SIGHT IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE. ASTOUNDED WE CALLED THE LOCAL POLICE, WHO INSTEAD OF TREATING US AS PRANKSTERS, ASKED US TO WAIT UNTIL THEY RETRIEVED THE PROPER FORM (YES, THEY HAD A FORM FOR UFO ENCOUNTERS). THE POLICE SAID THAT THEY GET MANY CALLS AND DOCUMENT THEM ALL. I SWEAR TO ALL WHO READ THIS THAT IT IS TRUE AND THAT HAD YOU WITNESSED THIS AS CLEARLY AS WE DID YOU WOULD BE FASCINATED.
