|Chased UFO And Witnessed It Up Close And Personal
I saw this one awhile ago, but figured I would report it while I was here. I'm not even sure if my date is that accurate, but I do recall it being around winter time...
My friend and I were on my way to my brother's house, when he noticed an orange ball drop into the atmosphere. At the time he pointed it out, I thought it was a street light, because it appeared to be the same color as one, but soon noticed that it went from hovering to moving at an exceptionally fast speed to our left. We followed the ball for a mile or so and saw that we were actually gaining on it until we ended up behind a grocery store.
It was very clear that we were much closer to the orange ball now. It appeared about half dollar size from our viewpoint and was hovering over a patch of trees. It moved closer to us (what seemed a very gradual speed) until it was right above my friend's parked car and much lower to the ground. The thing seemed only a matter of feet above us, and had a bright orange light in the middle with blue-ish lights surrounding. It hovered over us for some minutes, and made no sound at all. It shortly took off with such a speed, that neither my friend nor I could recall which direction it left in.
There were a series of strange occurrences that my friend and I experienced throughout the next several weeks, but I don't know if it's relevant to our experience, as we were experiencing some paranoia. I developed what seemed like scratches on the back of both of my shoulders (in semi-symmetrical lines of 4), but they seemed to be under my skin, as I could not feel them. They lasted over a week and vanished. My friend and I both awoke to doors slamming when we were home alone, with no explanation. My friend also claimed to develope the scratches some weeks later, but I didn't get to see them before they went away.
