OK, this happend years ago to me and my mother on our way back from a shopping trip. Both of us are very down to earth and would never make something like this up, i have just found you site and it is great to know there are people i can talk to about this.

Ok, it was a dark night, about 8pm and it was winter. ON the way back in home in the car, i noticed a light in the sky in the distance, it was very small, but it caught my eye as it was right ahead of us. I said to my mum "Look at that light mum", and she looked and said somthing like "Must be your gran watching over you", so then i said "Look at it now its getting closer", and soon it was about the size of that visable planet you can see from earth (sorry i forget the name), anyway it got closer and closer and mum said "im stopping the car", just then i lost sight of the object so we both got out the car (by this time we were on a very quiet road).

The object was nowhere in sight. I searched all over the sky and then realised that it was directly above us, the craft made no noise at all, it had flashing lights, i remember they were green, blue, red all around it. It was about the size of a small aircraft. I looked at my mother and she said "Its not making any noise", I actually panicked as the thing was right above us, (about 30ft) and it was hovering like it was watching us, i told mum to get in the car and we rushed off like crazy.

Just then mum said "OH MY GOD", i hadnt noticed what had happend as i had been staring ahead keeping my eyes on the road, but mum told me that the object had shot up (straight up) into the sky in a split second and was gone.

I testify that i saw that thing that day and me and my mother would gladly take a lie detector test or anything, our memories are a little hazy now, and we would have told people sooner (in fact i think my mum did), but who would belive us?

We still hardly believe it sometimes, but we both know it happend.
