On that night I was playing video games. It was around 3 a.m. and I wanted to go get a soda from the outside fridge. We had a pool and I was staring up into the sky enjoying the peaceful night. When I looked above the pool, it looked like the stars were really low. I wasn’t really too interested and I looked away. Right when I looked away, I saw bright lights.
As soon as the lights came on, my heart dropped to my stomach. At the time I was 16 years old, and as a teenager, I teared up a bit not thinking what would happen to me. All of the sudden, the lights flew up in the air and zoomed north.
I ran inside not bothering to wake my parents thinking they would make fun of me. Instead, I called my best friend panicking. When I told him what happened, he was speechless. I was worried he was thinking I was fibbing, but in reality he was just shocked and didn’t know what to say. I walked back outside thinking the flying object was back. But instead of seeing lights, the sky was dark and clear.
From that point on, I knew this would be a lifelong interest, and joined MUFON shortly after.
