How many DPers have actually experienced a UFO?

This is prompted by Sierra's claim that he saw a UFO with his two daughters.

Sierra has opinions on things that are different from mine, but I do believe him to be a screename of his word.

Remember that we're all people behind these screennames.

Perhaps I'm more receptive to this because I recently heard a flying saucer story from someone I least expected, which sounded true, and was delivered in such a way that I believed it. There was no reason to lie to me.

Here is something that is not a lie: My dad said he was from Planet X. He was big into science fiction, in the '40s. He was a reader. I wonder what he would be like, if I knew him today, at my age.

I just turned 46. 4 years prior to when he had me, at the age of 50. But ever since I was a young child, he told me that he was from Planet X. He said that one day, they would send a ship back for him. He died before it ever came, 9 years ago today - May 9, 2005.

But ever since I was a child, I've had a soft spot for UFO stories. So just tell the truth.

- Have you ever seen a UFO? If so, what was it like?

I personally never have, but I hope to one day. Then I can come back here and tell you what it was like, and you guys will all call me a liar, and then I'll just laugh in your faces, gleefully.


But let's not have any of that here. This a judgement free zone. If you're a doubter, Just go chill someplace else, kindly.

I want to hear some stories.

That ol' Black Magic Got Me in It's Spell

No one in their right mind would ever invite these things to visit. But to indicate I did anything occultish is a step a little bit too far. Even Jesus encountered Satan, so if demon aliens visited me I'd say I was on the right path. They couldn't tempt me, either.

All I can tell you friend..

Is that before I "born again" or "born of the spirit" (truly know Christ and have received him). I was interested in aliens/ufos and such, though I didn't really practice the occult, I was drawn to this to a degree.

I have had several terrifying experiences myself at night in the past where I guess you would call it "sleep paralysis" where demons visited me and tried to kill me.

They wouldn't let me even speak so I had to think "Jesus" or "Jesus help/save me", and eventually I *might* be able to say: "JESUS save me!" then the experience would quit.

Since I have come to know HIS Grace (the reality of the Gospel, and gift of what I must have to be saved, His blood shed for me) I have had NO experiences like this.

This is just the reality of my life!


All I can tell you friend...

is that I was never interested in aliens/ufos or such. I liked Star Trek, but who didn't? But that's not the same.
I never experienced 'sleep paralysis' but I did have a dream once that Frankenstein was chasing me.
I prefer not to divulge my beliefs but what makes you think I have not received His Grace?
I'm not prone to proselytizing, but I do believe that everyone is on a spiritual path - even atheists though they don't know it - and that everyone is exactly where they are supposed to be on their path. I totally accept and respect where you are. I ask the same courtesy from you, if that's possible.
I want to call one more thing to your attention - that experience happened a long time ago and has never been repeated so you can rest easy now.

Just curious on what you'd describe as

receiving His Grace, How? What are your beliefs??


stm, My heart goes out to you

in this terrifying experience! Others have had equally terrifying experiences, and some claim even more horrific ones. I read a fascinating book about the phenomenon called Alien Encounters by Chuck Missler and Mark Eastman: the book's forward is written by Douglas James Mahr, author of Voyage to the New World.

you can find it here:


The book reveals some of the information formerly kept classified about such encounters, some of the details of how the 'space crafts' defy the laws of physics, their likely origin, and how to prevent further contact with them.

The premises the authors base their conclusions on do relate to the Christian faith, and to the truth contained in it. (forewarning). However, they do a stellar (pun intended!) job of explaining their conclusions and the scientific basis for them.

How kind of you

But it wasn't something that worried me. I didn't go to sleep thinking about if they'd be back or not. I did know if they came back I'd have to pull them apart and make good my word and I was more concerned about how I'd geting rid of the evidence. :-)

I honestly doubt I'll ever be bothered again.

If they are transdimensional beings, then you may not have to

...' pull them apart and make good my word" and be 'more concerned about how I'd geting rid of the evidence'. :-) you may simply be able to command them to leave again. OTOH, If they are transdimensional and show up again, after being ordered to leave, they may take more than a simple command to cause to leave. Please at least consider reading the book I mentioned.

Interesting story

thanks for sharing it.

I don't doubt you. I know someone who claims to see spirits in his house, pretty much all the time. He's just gotten used to them.

There are many strange, unexplained happenings in the world...

He's the man.

You're welcome

That house was a mess with 'things' in it. The woman who had owned the house, I was the second owner, seemed to occupy my kitchen. I never 'felt' her, but others did. I was told she was nice and had a calming spirit so I shouldn't worry about her.
It also seems there was something in one part of the basement. It never bothered me but I had a lot of friends tell me there was something down there that spooked them.
Another time I had a friend staying over who said he heard someone walking up and down the basement stairs all night, but again, I had never heard anything like that.
The one thing I do know is that there was something nasty in one of the bedrooms so I set it up as a meditation room to clear out that energy. One time when I went away I asked my nephew to check on the house every so often. When I came back my sister said my nephew refused to step into my house again after he walked down the hallway and something 'grabbed his arm'. I decided to ask him about it and he admitted he was going to go into my meditation room - which I had specifically told him he could not enter - and when he reached for the door, something took hold of his arm and held him back. I laughed and he said it wasn't funny then said something like you have spirits watching your house, you didn't need me. LOL

Please seek Jesus

Yes you do not want to entertain these things in the mind or spirit . They can manifest through the air they are inter dimensional beings. They're crafts can morph and change they are here and they are going to mislead the masses into the their technology with deception they are already using synthetic DNA and nano technology these trans humanist believe they are their creators. Please seek Jesus Christ of Nazareth, The God of Abraham Issac and Jacob I am not saying seek religion nor another bible but the King James Bible for the word of God there is power. There are many false preachers in the world set on division and false teachers, false prophets, false preachers ,ect those who love the world more than God will be consumed by this world and will be under a great delusion which you can see that for just being here. They are really everywhere you just can't see them . Sin keeps us blocked from the Holy spirit we must shed these things only Christ can help us. I had to post please do not hate me for this post . Peace be with you .


I could never hate you

especially for expressing yourself honestly and for deeply feeling what you believe. Your advice does not come from a place that wishes me harm, and is filled with good intentions.

Life has been extremely good to me and I have been unbelievably fortunate to have been led to many teachers. My spiritual journey has been one I would describe as continually rising upward and expanding.

I appreciate what you wrote and just wish to tell you that I am fine spiritually.

Even here the stories pile

Even here the stories pile up. I sincerely wish there was a database for all the sightings because then we could see trends and where things have appeared and disappeared. There are so many that go unreported. Of course I suppose I ask the impossible.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

The Problem

The problem with that, is that the database would get overwhelmed. If you start reading about them. You'll find there have been lots and lots of sightings. Just go to your library and see if they have any books, you'll be surprised.

Just off the top of my head here's a title.

Night Siege: The Hudson Valley UFO Sightings. By Dr. J. Allen Hynek, Philip J. Imbrogno, and Bob Pratt

'What they uncovered was that thousands of people have been seeing strange objects in the sky--and sometimes even contacting strange beings--in the Hudson Valley just north of New York City. - SEVEN THOUSAND REPORTED SIGHTINGS -Witnesses from all walks of life'

Two shorten the road.


(1973 occurrence) is considered one of the most credible UFO incidents to date that seemed worth sharing since I don’t have my own story to tell. A friend told me 30 years ago she felt she had been abducted, and it sounded too bizarre to believe. Sadly she started to incur serious health issues not long after telling me that (pituitary tumor removed, facial paralysis, one thing after another). Captain (later Lt.Colonel) Coyne reports the helicopter was supposedly set in a descent position but the helicopter was pulled upward (@2:00 minutes into first video) from 1,700 feet to above 3,700 feet. There were witnesses on the ground who corroborated what the Captain saw. I am fascinated by incidents like this one as experienced by the military. Coyne was a disbeliever, but the incident opened his mind to possibilities.

UFO - Un Funded Opportunities

The DOD has known for years UFO's exist. They use the technology, and have done so for decades.

JFK and Robert Forrestal were both at Roswell NM.Two weeks before he was murdered, JFK was at Area 51 and literally told them, "YOU WILL show me everything, or, I will have you shut down". The people at 51 did not know JFK had first hand knowledge of aliens - they did show him everything. Reagan had two encounters, one with Nancy. Nixon took Jackie Gleason to actually see the aliens the military complex has. I suggest you all look up Richard Dolan. He is on Coast to Coast, and has his own show on Monday nights. He is extremely knowledgeable, and knows others personally.

I know about the UFO at RAF Bentwaters, December 1980. It is true. Peter Robbins has interviewed several airman who "participated". Peter has written a book called "Left at East Gate" regarding this incident. Yes, the UFO did disable the nuclear weapons on that base. The Commander did go public on Sept 25, 2011, and admitted to it.

I suggest you look up Peter's book, order it from Barnes and Noble.

I personally know Peter. The book is well worth reading.

As for personal interaction with UFO's, yes, I do not share publicly what occurred.


Some summer nite between '86 and '88 I saw something. It was in the early morning hours, with a clear sky out in the countryside away from city light pollution, and oddly quiet with no wind. It appeared at about the 11 o'clock position (12 being straight overhead). I saw an equilateral triangle dimly illuminated around it's perimeter with brighter spots at the corners. The interior was black or simply not illuminated. The object was completely silent and what initially struck me as so odd about it is that I was unable to judge it's size or altitude. It was just kind of there when I looked up. It had a slow counter clockwise rotation (about 2-3 seconds per revolution). It took about 30-60 seconds to move from the 11 o'clock position to disappearing behind the treetops of the forest about 100 yards away from me. It was the most bizarre thing I have ever seen.

My father tells UFO stories

along with other members of my family that witnessed the same "event". They are all very serious when speaking of it.

I myself am a skeptic, having grown up living near Point Mugu and now living near multiple other bases, I have seen lots of "weird" stuff in the sky (and in the water) over the years. Stuff I believe, belongs to our military... some of it I would never talk about again. Especially online.

Have you ever watched "Fire in the Sky" the 1993 movie? I've spent lots of time camping in the White Mountains and along The Mogollon Rim always wondering, but never seeing anything besides the night sky, in all it's splendor.

The thing I found really interesting about Fire in the Sky

Was the [typically-described] Aliens' bodies being their spacesuits.

Hit By One..

I once fell victim to an U-FO in a bar..Minutes later I awoke not knowing who I was or how much time i had lost...

Couldn't resist..

Once I saw a bright flashing light

in the middle of the night. I viewed it from my window and it lasted less than a second.
Have no idea what it was. Could have been seeing things I suppose.

You don't need UFO aliens to get probed, just visit New Mexico

DEMING, NM — A man has filed a lawsuit stating that a traffic stop led to a series of forced medical procedures when a police officer thought he was clenching his butt cheeks. His lawsuit says that without his consent, he was taken to a medical facility and where he was forcibly X-rayed multiple times, sedated, given several enemas, required to give multiple stool samples, subjected to fingers penetrating his anus during multiple cavity searches, followed by an actual colonoscopy where cameras probed his intestines for drugs. The startling 14-hour ordeal failed to find any contraband inside his body.


I was listening to the

I was listening to the testimony of John Todd - an ex-witch, ex-iluminati member - a few months ago and I found his explanation of UF0s rather interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trGMGj5RB0g at 12:50 minutes.

the truth will set you free

I have, a couple different times.

I posted this comment last year about an otherworldly UFO sighting I had as a child. I also started to write about another UFO sighting, that was quite close up, when I was a young adult. I was going to post it in reply to the thread about orange lanterns/drones/flares or whatever those UFOs were above Japan late last year or earlier this year, but I didn't. I'll have to finish editing that and post it.

I have had a few other very weird UFO-[possibly]Alien related experiences. One that could have been real or likely a hyper-realistic dream, that happened in the room I was sleeping in, where I woke up in the room or was *dreaming* I woke up in the room. A lot of weird things happened at that house, and in that neighborhood, who knows? And one when camping with a friend's family, that definitely was the spookiest (and different than the above linked story, that was also while camping.)


on the road about 7 or 8 years ago in atlantic city on the way to a convention. It was night time and I was the passenger.

Craft was metallic looking and came in from the water and flew along the highway very low... about 2x the height of the billboards they have there.. bright lights. white lights shone on its surface.. metallic silver.. no markings of any kind..

it flew too slow to have been an airplane and it flew too controlled to be a lighter-than-air craft.

it wasnt quite triangular and not quite oval... and it had some sort of weird looking wings on it (for lack of a better term)

The person I was with at the time who was driving didnt know wtf it was either but he flew into denial where by the time we got to the casino it was an airplane (it certainly was no airplane).. then 2 weeks later it was just a light in the sky, and a couple weeks later it was a story that I was making up.. (according to him)...

this particular person has a very big problem buying into anything unexplainable but totally believes every govt conspiracy thing in the world.

I've seen a few weird objects in my lifetime

And now Im watching the Live stream HD video from the space station to see if I see any more.


"A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself within" W. Durant

I was driving by the augusta airport

one night and I saw what looked exactly like a flying saucer. I kept watching it cause it was coming toward the airport and I thought to myself this has got to be a plane, but as it got closer and closer it looked more and more like a flying saucer, then it passed and I saw it was one of those small passenger planes. With its lights on and the angle I was at it looked just like a flying saucer. Although I dont know exactly what kind of plane it was so to me its an unidentified flying object.

Not sure what I saw but there

Not sure what I saw but there was a light in the sky between 8am ->9.30am that moved very slow and steady towards my balcony. No fade in or out, no blinking nothing that made me think it was a planet, star or satellite, since none of them have those characteristics. Stars blink, Planets are usually not seen at this time, it could have been one but I tried to look it up on the internet and couldn't find any info that lead me to think it was a planet. Satellites move very fast. The light disappeared quickly while I got myself some tea.

Probably nothing unusual I just couldn't explain it at the time, or now when I think about it.

I've seen some very strange

I've seen some very strange things in the night's sky on occasion, but I absolutely do not believe aliens have ever visited Earth, beyond perhaps bacteria deposited on our planet from stray asteroids.

One of the weirdest things I've seen has been ball lightning and I'd bet it has been mistaken for a UFO more than once.

Not a personal experience, a person I know well

awoke to objects in her room (she was a young little thing at the time) floating. She then saw a grey. Like one of the grey aliens. It began making clicking sounds at her.

This experience recurred until a family friend got her to explain why she was freaking out. The friend told her to command this being out in the name of Jehova the next time she saw them. She did this and the being never returned.

To this day she speaks of this in hushed tones.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

That sounds more like an occurrence of sleep paralysis.

That sounds more like an occurrence of sleep paralysis, which ironically doesn't always include paralysis. There are similar accounts mentioned at www.stopsleepparalysis.org

I've experienced sleep paralysis before, but not with greys. There are a lot of different kinds of things people have seen in that sort of state.
