UFO over Lake Ponchatrain - 1994

In the summer of 1994 a friend came to pick me up at the end of Clearview from apartments. I was living in @ the time. We were driving down Clearview and I saw a lot of different multi-coloured lights in the sky that were stationary.

I was excited and told him to follow the lights. We ended up at the other end of Clearview – he parked the car, we got out and went over the bankement. There was this huge circular object with multi-coloured lights that was stationary in the water over Lake Ponchatrain..I am not sure how many feet it was out -- there was absolutely no noise.

It stayed there for maybe 30-45 seconds, then started moving very slowly towards the bank where I & my friend were standing -- I started running towards it… but I just couldn’t get close enough. My friend and I then ran up on the bank to watch it slowly leave and literally disappear without a trace.

There were other people that night who had seen the same thing – they were standing further down from my friend and I. I want to say at least six people maybe more. I wish I would have spoken to them.

I cried after the experience – it was extremely overwhelming and impacted me for a short time in my life.

I have never seen anything like that before or since in my life. I hope I do see it again one day.
