this happened a while ago, a lot has happened in my life since then,but I could never forget this night,I dont know that what we saw that night was a u.f.o. ,I just know it was unexplainable.

I've always been the type of person that has to have solid proof to believe in things like u.f.o.'s, well i'll just tell you what happened.

I used to live in a apartment with my previous wife and our two children,I always worked graveyard,now for 27 years, I would always see this guy who lived in our complex coming home from fishing,I only knew him to say hi,or hows it going,but one day he came home with a 101 lb. sturgene fish that he caught behind the rice mills in west Sac. We then started talking about fishing,he asked me if I wanted to go to a place on my night off where him and his dad used to go and catch tons of cat fish. I agreeded to go , he told me it was on private land ,that it was an eragation sluogh a couple of miles into this land ,we would have to go at night, but not to worry,nobody is ever out there,he was right it was prestine, and soon as your line hit the water,you would get bites. We probably caught 25 to 30 cat fish, it was realy buitiful out there ,there was'nt a piece of trash to be seen anywhere,tall trees lined both sides of the slough.

About two weeks later, I was telling my friend and my sister in laws boyfriend about this fishing spot they both wanted to go, I told them about the land being private, and that we would have to go at night. We went about 12:00 am by 1:00 am we where there starting to fish, just like last time we started catching cats like crazy ,we where using an electric lantern to see, it was mildly bright, while we were sitting there all of a sudden down the slough ,on the bank, about maybe 150 yards or more away, a bright light came on, it looked to be like one of those bright coleman gas lanterns, but we could'nt see or here any people, we where instantly scared being on private land where my nieghbor told me he and his father never saw a soul out there, we quikly turned off our light and watched. Nothing was happening ,the light just stayed on, we waited a while and then thought it might be someone fishing like us, we thought we would try to be quiet and keep fishing with our light! off,we did. We fished for about an hour or 2, when my friend said he wanted to go lay down in the back of my nova, that he did'nt care if we kept fishing,we did, though we kept looking down the slough at the light, we got so used to it being there we kinda stopped thinking about it, when all of a sudden the light got intencely bright, it scared the hell out of us ,when I say it got bright I mean like stadium lighting, we jumped up asking each other what the hell where we looking at?, before we could wake up my friend the light got giant ,it loominated all the trees and water,and I swear to you this light rose off the ground, it was so bright we could'nt see any mass on it,just light. I then opened my car door and shaking my friend to wake up, by this time the light was at the top of the trees, My friend said what is it ,I told him it was the light that was on the bank, he then asked me if it was a u.f.o., it made no sound at all, I told him I have no idea what it is,we the! n stared throwing our gear in the car, and we jumped in,we did! 'nt know what to do, we had to drive towards it to leave, as we started near it ,it backed up, as we got closer it then moved quikly across the top of the trees,we could see it loominating the trees as it took off, it almost seemed to know we where watching.Im getting goose bumps remembering this night. I have been through many things in my life since then, I remaried to a wonderful wife,but we suffered some great tradgedy in our life ,like the suicide death of my youngest son, the passing of my father who died fairly young,I dont usualy tell this story, because it sounds crazy, but I swear its true, I dont know what we saw, maybe you do. Many years had past and I lost contact with the 2 guys I was with that night, but one day my wife and I ,and my sister and her boyfriend went to the asparagus festival in Stockton Ca.,and while we where there amongst thousands of people I hear someone call my name ,it was my friend who was in the car asleep,he said hey ,hows it going ?,its been a ! long time, how about that thing we saw that night? I laughed,I thought it was funny ,that was the first thing he brought up .I was realy glad to see him and talk about it. Just for the record, when we drove over towards where it was there was no farm equipment no building no lighting of any kind,just acres and acres of corn field, we truely saw something that night ,and I think it was something we were'nt supposed to see, I dont know if this story is helpful to you ,I just wanted to tell it,and its 100% true.
