It was april 1993, I was about 6 or 7 years of age when me and my family of 3 were going on a little trip to visit some relatives. It was a nice spring, closer to summer, day when we were traveling from Dunkirk, Ny 14048 Chautauqua county. As we left our home on deer street we merge on ROUTE 60. I will never forget that night!
My mother was driving in our 1993 4 dr ford, as I was sitting in the back seat playing with a couple of little green army men soldier combat toys. I started to doze off from the comfortable smooth ride, my eyes wondered off into the bright blue sky as I notice some type of shiny thing reflecting off of the sun, but the only way I noticed this was becuase the reflection zipped across the sky really fast. So, as I saw this silver or dull grey oval shaped object, it almost looked like a antique womens hat like the ones they would wear to a funeral but it was sliver colored.
I dont know why this object only appeared for me to see but as I looked around the route checking to see if any one else seen this THERE WAS ABSOLUTLY NO ONE ELSE AROUND! It was scary as hell. So I stared at this object hoping that it was just a bird or air plane, but I threw that image out of my head after I knew that, of course airplanes and birds just dont levetate or remain in one position. The weird thing about this sighting was the object appeared to travel at the same speed my mother was driving, so I wondered if the unknown liked the color blue, as it was the color of our ford car. As I noticed the object was soaring (flying) at the same speed of rate I then got skeptical about this object, so then I tapped my mother seat reapeatly and yelled “theres somthing in the sky looking down on us.” She said its probably just a airplane.
I then leaned over to my big brother and told him to look. When he did he said, “Mom dad there is something in the sky pull over lets take a picture!” So after number of times of telling our parents about this object in the sky, my father decided to look over, crossing my mother’s driver seat. He glance in the sky. At first he said, “I don’t see anything,” but after staring hard he paused and said, “WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?”
He shouted, “honey pull over pull over quick.” So she did, and said you boys are probably just seeing a bird or a plane. So, we all stepped out and looked into the blue sky. Now rememberI said this object followed us at the speed of our car, so now as we stepped out, it was not moving any more. It was just floating in the clear sky, no clouds, no birds, no jets, and no planes! The sky was clear and as my parents began to glance and stare, my brother was checking the trunk for binoculars and camera, to see and take a picture of this object.
As they continue to stare and talk about what they were actually seeing, my hearing began to close out and I couldn’t hear anything! My ear drums completly closed for about 10 seconds, and I began to notice that once again, not 1 car or moving vehicle was in sight. I looked around a number of times, as I was scared that we were only seeing this object looking down, or waiting to move in on us. I thought we were in trouble, so I yelled really loud and said, “WE ARE THE ONLY ONES ON THIS ROAD!” My mother said, “why are you yelling?” I just looked at her and did not say anything at the time, because I couldnt hear.
After my hearing became back to normal, she repeated “why are you yelling? Did you hear me the 1st time?” I said “mom, I didnt hear you but I saw your lips moving.” My step father also noticed we were all alone on route 60. As soon as my brother finally found the camera he yelled “I found it!” As he yelled, that’s when I looked to my left and saw a white volvo pulling up. It was a Caucasian male and female. At the time i thought they were Caucasian, but when this person jumped out, he said, “what’s wrong? What do you all see?”
With the accent, I knew he was foreign, only to notice Mexican or Spanish to be exact. I hurried to say, “it’s something in the sky, and I think it’s a UFO.” So he smiled and said, “really!” My step dad said to look. The guy looked up and said “Oh my God! Dude, that thing is not moving! What is that?” He quickly ran back to his car told his wife to come out and grab the binoculars! I was thinking, yes now we can take a closer look, only to be disappointed, because I was only 6 years old, and I knew the chances of me getting the binoculars was slim to none.
Standing in between 4 adults now, and my brother, he had the edge becuase he was older then me, so I was pushed to the back. I heard the Mexican guy say even with the binoculars he couldn’t seem to say what it was, but he said it was leveltating and NOT SPINNING. He then said he didn’t know what it was, but thought we should get out of there, because we were the only ones on this route, and didn’t want to try to stick around to see what its going to do.
This route only had number of farms and spacing land. Trees and grass mostly. So as the couple began to get in their car, my brother of all people, tried to take a picture. At the snap of the camera, after the light cleared, the unknown object….WAS GONE! Now of course it could have flown across the sky, right? Or maybe even went into the clouds, but like I said, the sky was clear, clear, clear, clear, and one more time, clear. No clouds at all!
So, I still wonder to this day what was it? We did not have anything on film or photo after we developed the picture. This object was so fast, even the speed of light flashing couldnt capture this object. Now I’m no genius, but I’m smart enough to know that no bird nor aircraft could beat the speed of light without being noticable. NO HUMAN MADE OBJECT COULD DO IT! So whatever it was didn’t want to be exposed to the rest of the world. I’m assuming, or in theory, I think this object felt the energy from the flash of the camera coming towards it, and that maybe it thought it was being attacked, and vanished. But then I thought the technology of this object was SO GOOD, it sensed energy from the distance it was, to the ground where my brother took the picture.
Now thats some hell of technology that us earthlings can not compare to. If God made this earth, of course he made other things that are not suppose to be explanable. If it’s out there, stop looking for the truth, becuase the truth could hurt you! Literally. I kept this story to myself over the 2 decades. Im 25 years old right now, and I was 6 then, so why would anyone believe a 6 year old, right? I dont care what you believe, but do know that the unkown is still out there looking over us for what reason well…. we probably would never know!
