To whom it may concern,
I have previously made this rep[ort some months ago. It was rejected because I could not give an exact date or even the year. I knew that it was in the winter and I knew the time because of a meeting I was going to that meets at 8pm. regularly. However I was unsure of an axact month or even the year. I knew it was between 2001 and 2002 and it was in either January or February.
Upon speaking with a friend about UFO's and about my experience,I have re-thought the date of my siting. I believe that it was in January of 2001, to the best of my recollection. Anyway, that is my best guess.
That is all this reporting site has asked me for, so if this report is not accepted then I will not try again. I was surprised when the report was rejected because I could not give an exact date, especially when I seen a report from a man who claimed to see UFO's in the 1970's with no specific dates of the sitings. I found the reply to be insulting, particularly when this site is supposed to be looking for reports from people. I am not looking for any special recognition or for anything for that matter, accept to be believed, however, if I am not, than so be it. With all this said I will report what I seen one last time.
I was traveling down Main Street in Salisbury, heading to an AA meeting, of which I had been a sober member for many years at the time and still am. It was just before 8pm and I was just going to make it on time because I was running late. I noticed that the street became suddenly and very strangely deserted, even for a street Salisbury, which is not a large city.
I felt a very errie presence that I find hard to describe. I did not know where it was coming from. Somehow I felt that this presence was around my car and felt that I could not shake it even though I was driving and was in motion. I looked around in all directions but saw nothing. I knew there was a definate presence though.
Finally I looked up to see, directly above me, a saucer. I stopped the car immediately and it stopped as well. It then took off in a slight foward motion from my car and angled upward where it dissapeared into the sky at lightening speed. I remember seeing it become smaller and smaller until it dissapeared into the sky. It was a metallic blue/silver color and had an aura about it. The lighting about it appeared to fluctuate, although there were no actual lights on it or that were coming from it.I could not tell how large or small it was or how close or far above me it was, only that it was above me. My guess is that it was closer rather than further away and that it was not particularly large.
Well, that is my siting report and that is what I had seen.I have never before or since seen anything like that. Thank you for your time.
