My wife and I both witnessed a HUGE Triangular craft with 3 lights then 30 orange/yellow orbs in the same vacinity

Hi there Peter. I hope this message finds you well and in good spirits.

I am turning to you with this because you have a better understanding of this universe, and are very open minded and connected individuals! I just couldn't keep quiet about this extraterrestrial experience my wife and I went through a few days ago. I think it's WONDERFUL what you're doing to challenge the minds of so many analytical thinkers. I heard a statistic you said on a podcast about how 1 in 10,000 people don't speak out about what they witness/feel, and I will NOT be one of those who keep quiet! Here goes...

My wife and I just got back from the beach a few days ago (Sunday April 28 2013) and I just can't seem to shake what happened to us last Thursday (April 25 2013) Okay, just to give you a little background information on myself, I am 30 years old born 3/4/83. My family has always been HUGE into astronomy, and I know a good bit about the sky. I'm no expert, but I seriously grew up going out into fields with my uncle, grandma, grandpa, mom, dad, aunt, basically the whole family, and stargazing, and getting taught about the universe from a very young age anything from constellations to getting into philosophy conversations as to what we know about the universe. Almost every one of them also own nice telescopes. So I guess you could say I'm an amateur astronomer. I have just never witnessed anything like what happened, and I CANNOT get it off my mind.

We had just arrived at our destination at Cherry Grove Beach in South Carolina around 8:00, and I have been DYING to get to the beach. (I haven't been in like 3 1/3 YEARS, and I am a fish out of water...haha) We proceeded to walk down onto the coastline. We stood there for about 10 minutes on a pretty much empty beach. The same night that we had that beautiful "Pink Moon," gleaming down upon the surface of the water.

My wife asked me what all that lightning was out over the water. I explained to her about how lightning can't ground itself over water, and the charge jumps from cloud to cloud...etc etc etc. I'm a bit of a science buff. Anyways, as i finished explaining about the heat lightning, I happened to turn my head to the right and look into the sky. THIS is where it gets interesting...

I noticed 3 lights in the sky, and could actually make out an isosceles triangular "silhouette" around the perimeter of the craft. One light in the back and two in the front. Two of the sides were longer than the one side in the front. As I looked closer, it started moving very slowly towards the moon in the brightly lit sky.

I then grabbed my wife's shoulder, and asked her if she was seeing this, and that I am not losing my mind so to speak. She validated with a yelling, "YES," as we continued watching in awe as it moved SILENTLY across the sky.

Now, this craft had to be BIG. I can't really determine the distinct size, but lets just say that it was approximately two, maybe more, football fields. It was literally blocking out all of the stars behind it. craft slowly crept across the sky for 7-10 minutes, and all of a sudden, the craft stops to a hover, and the underneath started sparkling! Almost like a ton of high power strobe lights started going off all at the same time in a very spastic pattern. It was SO beautiful and scary all at the same time.

My wife pointed at another star, and asked me, "Is that another one?" I glanced over, and reassured her that it wasn't, and as we looked back to resume observing the craft ascended higher into the atmosphere and out of sight. I told her…"This isn't over, there's GOT to be more to what we just saw."

Well, little did I know at that moment, that my intuition was spot on. We stood there for about 10 minutes talking about what had just happened. MY wife's cousin, who was meeting us down there, called her cellphone, and she turned her back to the ocean, and walked away from me for a second. I kept my eyes fixed on the night sky the WHOLE TIME.

As my wife was talking to her cousin on her cell phone, I was astounded to witness ANOTHER strange anomaly. One Orb flashed bright Orange with yellow around the aura I guess you could call it. Flashed bright, then fizzled out as it fell in a random flight pattern. As that one burned out, one more, then another one! During the THIRD one, I turned and yelled "TURN AROUND NOW!!!" As she did, we both saw roughly 30 of these glowing Orbs moving frantically around a central area. They all seemed to move random at first, then it seemed TO ME like maybe that they were either attacking or communicating with the craft (not necessarily force, but more along the lines of telling it to "GO AWAY"), or either going INTO the craft (as it looked as if the orbs were going though some kind of perimeter of the craft or force field.) It was in the same proximity of where the craft would have actually been in the atmosphere given the speed it was moving, and the direction it ! was moving, yet, you couldn't actually see the craft. I don't know...I have been at a loss for words, and the whole experience has been constantly turning over and over in my head. If there is ANY type of guidance, or advice, or ANYTHING, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks again for being so open minded, and giving yourself back to the universe and helping to open the minds of the world. YOU ARE BEING HEARD AND MAKING AN IMPACT!
