|Craft flies very low over our heads!!
This sighting occurred in December of 2005. We did not report as we are unsure of what happens with these reports. Before this sighting we have noticed alot of strange UFO activity in our rural location such as weird lights in the sky, unknown sounds in and on top of house such as "something" running arcross roof late at night or very early in the morning hours. Also, a few months before this sighting we observed five to six "helicopters" with very low humming engines and air to ground spotlights flying around the area as searching in a grid formation.
We(husband, wife and child) went outside to the rear of our home to gather the trash cans and wheel them out front to the curb. About mid-way I(husband) happened to look up and saw a huge "ship" and proclaimed " What the !@#! is that?" at which time my wife and son also looked up and observed the object. It was moving from South to North VERY slowly and was less than 150 feet in the air or right above our tree tops. The object was sort of rectangluar in shape but not quite. The rear of the object was "glowing" an yellow orange color and making a low humming sound. In the center of the object was looked like a large dome that hung below the object and pulsated the same yellow orange color. As we only saw the underbelly of the object we also noticed many what seemed to be "tubes", my wife said it looked to her more like a flying generator.
To say the least, we all three were very shocked and with me being a ufo buff got quite excited! Since this encounter we have heard that same "humming sound" on other occassions that seem to come from right above our home. We also hear very strange sounds that come from the woods around our home quite frequently and still see strange activity.
