The encounter took place back on June 4th, 2021. My family had a barbecue outside, and I decided to walk to Sunset View Park by myself. We live two blocks away from the park. I made the mistake of not bringing my phone with me because I wanted to rest my eyes after spending all day staring at the screen. So I spent my time admiring the sunset. The sunset was a vibrant mixture of orange and pink. Tinted with a cool shade of blue.

There weren't that many people in the park. It was just me, an old lady, and a few others in the distance. I appeared to be the only person looking up into the sky at that moment because everyone else seemed busy with their own devices. Eventually, I reached the end of the park, where there was a large grassy field and a triangular pink house at the end. That's when I suddenly came into contact with it. As I was walking, I saw something fly from behind me. My immediate reaction was annoyance because we had people in my community who would launch their drones around the park. And I got annoyed because I thought I was being filmed. But it didn't fly any further. The second I turned around, that's when I saw it.

The UFO was staring directly at me, hovering a shy five feet above me. The length of your average basketball hoop at the park. The pink house was behind us. I immediately froze when I realized that this was not a drone. I was staring at something from outer space.

And I was mesmerized. The UFO was facing me from the bottom. Where a wheel of glowing white lights (6-8) spun rapidly like a casino wheel, it appeared to look like some flat tea plate. It had a flat hollow center, surrounded by a ring of turning lights. The disk itself was the size of a sun hat, and it was a darker shade of silver. The metal appeared dense where not much light could reflect on it. There was a hint of orange, pink, and blue from the sunset bouncing off its surface. But it was very faint, muddled like a smudged mirror covered up in metallic coating.

I could tell that it was staring right back at me. The staring lasted for a solid three minutes. It continued to hover a few feet above me like a temporary stalemate. It's like it was waiting for me to do something. I wasn't as freaked out as I should've been, even though the situation could've easily turned dangerous. I oddly felt at peace with its presence, then out of where it decided to take off at the speed of light, leaving behind a motion blur of green. The same way jet engines take off with a motion blur.

Since I was in close proximity to it, the details of the UFO are burned deeply into my mind. I remembered how the green light surrounded the outer ring of each white light and how it highlighted the shape of the UFO for a few quick seconds before it took off with a strobe of green. What shocked me the most was how it left no noise behind or any traces of wind. It took off like a silent race car. The green motion blur quickly faded away. And I was left speechless. I kept staring at this spot for another few minutes before coming back to my senses.

I couldn't believe that I had the opportunity to see a real-life UFO. Most people aren't even sure if UFOS exist or not, and my experience confirmed that they do exist and that they're out there. If I didn't spend my time looking up at the sky and the sunset, I would've missed it. On my way home, I realized that the possibilities were endless. If UFOS exist, a lot of other things could exist as well. It also made me feel inferior; our technology isn't as advanced as the UFO I had seen. I realized how behind we are as a civilization. We still have a long way to go before we can create something similar.

I tried explaining what I saw to my family, but they couldn't grasp what I had seen. Yes, they believe in the possibility of life in the universe, but they continued to deny it and assumed that I must've seen something else. I reached out to my friends who mentioned seeing UFOS before, and they understood me better and shared their past experiences. Except their experiences were different.

They saw UFOS high above in the sky. I saw one up close. If I had jumped towards it, I could've easily grabbed it. They didn't get to have the same good look at their UFOS as I did. And it's hard to find someone who relates to me on this level.

Since then, I've begun to pay more attention to the sky. And I ended up seeing more ufos in the distance. It's as if my encounters doubled after seeing one of them up close. More UFO sightings happened that same summer. I've seen more strange things. When I was on the balcony with my mother, I saw a flaming orb bouncing from our neighbor's rooftops; it looked like a small glowing sun. It happened so quickly as if it jumped like a skipping stone. I'm not sure what it was trying to do. Or what it was searching for in my community.

And finally, my last encounter was when I saw a camouflaged triangle-shaped UFO in the night sky. There were stars out that night. But what struck me as odd was how it slowly appeared to tilt back in forth like a scale. It looked like a surfboard trying to balance itself. There were three white lights on each angle and a faint red light toward the front of the center.

A year after that, I continued to see things occasionally, but I couldn't confirm whether they were ufos or not. I noticed that the last three were more visible to me, and I can confidently say that I have seen three different types of UFOS during the summer of 2021. My only wish is to understand their purpose; I wish I knew why they were hovering above my community for quite some time and why I was the person who happened to see all of them over the span of two months. I envy our government because they know much more about UFOS than the public, but it's probably for a good reason.
