Characteristics: The object landed
The ufo was above this radio tower. Me and my mom were watching it. It was about a half mile away as the crow flies. The ufo started to move toward us slow it got about 5 to 6 hundred yards away and began to move parallel in front of us.It was about 5 hundred feet high. My mom thought it was a game warden's helicopter looking for people spotlighting deer.There was no sound, even at 11 yrs old I knew something was weird. We called the State Police they put us on hold after we told them what we saw. No one ever came back to the phone. While we were waiting on the phone, the light landed behind the trees. Just before it landed, it flashed a bright light. It lit up everything around us that we could see for about 5 seconds. The closest way to describe it is a gas stove. You think is lit but the pilot light is out and the gas is on -- you light it and it flashes a bluish green light. It goes poof for a split second. My mom got scared and we went in the house. After the flash everything seemed normal. My mom got a little nervous we went inside and watched though the windows. We watched for about a half hour or so we never saw it take off. My mom never liked to talk much about it I guess because she could not explain to my satisfaction. As I got older in my late teens and early twenties I hunted that woods.I never found any thing or a landing place.The woods was shaped like a piece of cut pie about quarter of a mile long the deepest part was about 3 hundred yds wide. One time I was there and I was trying to leave I got lost. You could always hear the traffic to guide you back to the road. But it seemed either I Ihad gone deaf or time stopped.I started to panic a little. I took off in the direction of the road, I thought, but no luck. Then I headed for the field no such luck. Meanwhile at the same time I could not hear any sounds-- birds, any thing. I started to freak out.If you could see this woods you think I'm insane to not find my way out.I sat down by a tree and thought "I'm los! ing my m ind." If my hunting buddies found out they would not let me hear the end of this.This is where I grew up it makes no sense at all. Some time went by and I began to hear cars in the distance. I found my way out and I have not been back.
