The reason the whole house had been plastered was my Uncle had been outside the evening before and saw a UFO in the sky and was astounded and had told the neighbours....small town...who are you going to tell right? This was in the early 70's remember? When talk of UFOs wasn't really as prevalent...well, who am I kidding? I was eight. Hahahaha!
Okay, so fast forward to my teens and once again a confrontation with UFOs make a direct impact on someone in my family! My father was heading out for work in the early morning and the neighbour across the street was coming home from a nightshift. They did the expected wave and "Hello neighbour" thing and then were both stunned to look up into the sky and see three discs just hanging there above the neighbourhood, but as fast as one could say "Run for your camera!" the three UFO ships just flung themselves to the far reaches of the galaxy with a woosh. After that, my father was pretty much obsessed with any program on TV that featured UFOs (okay, maybe not obsessed, but definitely far more interested than he'd ever been). Those little green men plastered on my Uncle's windows weren't quite as hilarious as they had seemed at the time!
Since then, as an adult, I've heard a story from someone who was there, about a crop circle at a place just outside of the city I lived in. It was winter and some employees at the place of business came into work on a snowy morning and found a (I'm guesstimating here, but know I'm close) 40' oval burn in the snow behind the business, with no footsteps leading to or away from it. Any ideas? Come on...all you skeptics....explain that one away!
My point is, this is just me and my encounters secondhand with UFOs. How many stories have you heard of from people you know? Or how many of you have actually seen with your own eyes what authorities try to explain away as a figment of your imagination or a national defense project?
Are the little green men really going to come soon? Hahahaha!
