I am sending you this message to report another strange sighting which occured on Friday night, March 19th, 2004 here in Bowling Green, Kentucky at approximately 11:30 PM central time. Other sightings here similiar to this have been reported several times in the past several years. This time there was also a female witness besides me, and she too observed the same object, at the same time, as I did. This is a TRUE story, and we were both surprised to say the least. This object was really strange. Anyway, I had been out for a dinner date with a friend, and was driving home when I just happened to look up out the front windshield of my automoble and saw a bright white light with something blinking on it. At first, I thought it was probably an airplane or helicopter, because Bowling Green has a small airport located there. Aircraft from our military bases at Fort Campbell and Fort Knox, Kentucky routinely refuel there. But when I really looked at the object it remained stationary, and was not moving any at all. The light was round, large, bright, and looked to be about the size of a large bus. A second large, bright, and round red "strobing" light was blinking on and off in the center of the object, and at times there also appeared to be smaller red lights in a row all along the outer edges of the object. They too were blinking on and off, but not as rapidly as the center light. The red light in the center seemed to be "pulsating" as it blinked on and off. As I continued to observe the object, a female neighbor of mine drove up to park her car. I asked her if she would take a look at what I was observing, and to tell me that I wasn't "seeing" things. She did so and told me that she was seeing it too, and that it looked really weird. We both continued to observe the strange object for close to thirty minutes. This object, we both agreed, was truly something unusual, and not something conventional. After more than forty minutes watching this craft, it slowly began to move sli! ghtly lower, but not landing. We then went our separate ways because it was getting late. This object appeared in the direction going toward Franklin, Kentucky/Portland Tennessee, leaving Bowling Green. I have seen this thing before, and what it is I have no idea. But it is strange and bizarre. I do know that it is not a tower, star, airplane, helicopter, or satellite etc. We both DID see this, and we are not making this story up. Should this not be investigated? Thank you for your time.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the report is of a sighting of the planet, Venus. Witness elects to remain totally anonymous, and provides no contact information. How he expects us to respond to his question is not clear to us.


I am writing back to you as a follow-up report on the object I reported to your center. First, I do not believe that this object we saw was the planet Venus. I should have provided more information to you, and I apologize for that. Me, and many others have seen this object before the night reported above. Some have reported it on your web site. It sometimes appears as a huge fireball, and it does move and zig-zag about too. Sometimes smaller objects can be clearly seen underneath the larger object flying back and fourth. At times the red lights are clearly visable on the object, and one time we even observed the craft through binoculars, and it appeared diamond shaped glowing purple. This thing even flew directly over my automobile late one night years ago. I am not making this story up or anything like that. We have had several strange sightings of triangular objects in this area before too. I do wish to remain anonymous, but I thought you might want to investigate this thing someday.
