3rd Sighting of same craft

2011 February 5 Sighting By 2-5-11, at 5:45pm, I was beginning to think I might not see the craft from 11-25-10, 01-04-11, and 01-14-11 again but, I was sitting there on a nice day with my inside door open, half watching the nice clear blue sky for hours, that afternoon into early evening, through the storm door window.

That was when I saw what I thought was a jet coming from the northwest (I'd seen many that afternoon), illuminated by the setting sun, going toward the southeast at a great height, If I had to guess,15,000 feet. I watched for some time as it grew closer, and larger, but, still at a great height, heading southwest... I don't know why I was watching that jet, that particular day, or why I noticed and followed that jet but, I recall that I was thinking; "you know, that could be one of the UFO's, and I would never know it, it is, so high up".

At that exact moment, like they read my thoughts, this,, what I thought was, a jet - a tiny vehicle way up high- with its contrail (shorter than usual for a passenger jet). Suddenly, this "jet", made a 90 degree turn directly up (it did not stop and turn, it did not curve upward, it just made a 90 degree turn in continued motion directly up or out, and away from earth) stopped emitting the contrail, as it went up, it began glowing as a bright orange fireball and as I watched flared blindingly bright two or three times the size of the vehicle itself. After flaring up so bright, perhaps 5 seconds then, the orange quickly started to fade, and as the orange light faded, I could make out a disk shaped craft then, this craft just faded away, and there was nothing but the brief horizontal contrail remaining where it had been traveling before it turned upward and disappeared. It did not go out of range, it was clearly visible but, just became less solid and the blu! e sky behind it became visible through it, more and more until it was just gone.

I witnessed this event against a blue sky with the setting sun clearly lighting up the vehicle, it was unmistakable, this craft left our dimension and faded out. After all the sightings, I believe it to be the exact same craft I had seen before in January 2011, and I know this sounds strange but, it was like they, whomever they, are, wanted me, to see this event. As if to say, "we came to visit you, you saw us, and now its time to say, goodbye". I did not know if I would ever, see it again, after that, but, gratefully, I have had repeated sightings since.
