|Possible UFO in the Kuwaiti desert disappeared after two military jets entered the air space.
First off this is not a hoax. Anyways, this happened when I was out in the desert of Kuwait near FOB Yankee. It was around 2100 and I was getting ready for bed. I layed down in the cab of my 7ton truck on my back and looked up to the sky. I've always had a fascination with astrology and I looked to find the big dipper which was really big tonight.
Anyways, as I was looking at the constellation I noticed a bright, white light in the sky that was moving. It didn't have any blinking lights and it was bright than the stars around it. I figured it was a satellite or something so I just watched it move. All of a sudden, the object slowed down which I thought was odd. After about a minute the object sped up again. Then for no reason it slowed down for a second time. Another minte or so passed and the object sped up again. The object then slowed down a third time.
Then, for no reason at all the object started to disappear from where it was, getting smaller and smaller and leaving what looked like an after-burn trail. This was all going on for about seven minutes. Coincidently as the object was disappearing, two jets (which looked like military jets) came into the area that the object was in and circled the area for about five minutes or so and then just left.
I thought it was odd that the object I was looking at disappeared as soon as the two jets came into the area. This occured around 21:07. After that I was talking with one of my buddies about it and alal of a sudden I got really tired. I then went back to my cab and layed down. And for no reason it felt like I could lift any of my limbs. It was like I was a dead weight and it was the strangest feeling I've ever felt.
I woke up about an hour later with a jump, kind of like when somebody sneaks up from behind you and scares you. It was the weirdest feeling because I don't remember falling asleep at all and I was wide awake when I did wake up. I don't remember a thing from when I layed down for a two minutes to waking up. I know it's a stretch but that's what I felt.
