Look at my posts: ALL skeptical posts, from a while ago. I was opened to the idea, I just wanted proof. Couple years ago I went "Would be cool if we saw a UFO". Be careful what you wish for.
I'm 24 now. Never took drugs for my entire life, last drink was a single glass of wine on July 3.
I'm skeptical. When I was a kid, I believed I saw a cigar ufo. My sister saw it too, but she kept saying it was just a weird plane. Growing up, while the idea was always in the back of my mind, I dismissed it as a kid's perception. I stopped being afraid andfascinated, moving on to finishing school and getting a career.
Until this morning, where I saw a UFO.
Now, let's be objective for a second. I cannot affirm positively that it is extra-terrestrial in nature. I cannot say it is anything besides what I saw - because I know no more. I can only tell you what I saw - and then we discuss what it can be, without dismissing any theory. Occam's razor is nice, but sometimes the most simple is not the reality. So we consider everything - from the simplest theory, to air balloons to planes, to aliens to Cthulus, and why not, radio controlled toy planes.
Got up at 6h20AM on September 15, 2013. I was WELL awake. Browsing the net on my phone, until 6h50 approx. Then I took my towel, getting ready for my shower, looked out my window and there it was. A bright, cigar/round shaped light. There was little sun, mostly clouds.
I didn't film it. The idea crossed my mind, and I actually could have. I have no excuse. But my reasoning was this - alone in my appartment, unaware of the thing I'm watching's intentions. If I was with people, I would have. But I was scared. So instead I ran out and yelled to a nearby woman walking to her car to look. She didn't. I made sure to keep my distance so she wouldn't be afraid of me, could have thought I was a thug trying to get her attention.
Had she looked, she would have seen it. Now, I deeply regret not having taken a video. It moved from south to north, parrallel to my appartment bedroom window. Then, it made circles in the sky. I believe it was about 5 to 10 kilometers away, and was about maybe 100 to 300 meters high, a bit taller than average buildings (3-5 floors). I didn't see it leave, it stayed for about 2 to five minutes. It was about 7h05 by then.
I called a local ufology group. The guy who answered, while knowledgeable about cases, was a bit too emotionally involved in this. He gave me information about how many reports we had in the province this last year and what kind of reports. But he believed in aliens and silly stuff he may not have personally seen. I believe in proof - I have personal proof of a flying orb - not of aliens. And hopefully I'll never get that proof.
He said there was many cases this year- many false cases, but he (he is not the only one receiving the reports) himself had not yet talked to someone with a sighting like mine.
Hallucination? I was wide awake... not under the influence of anything. This is something I won't compromise on. My health is very good. This sighting was not induced by my body, I can positively affirm this.
There are no skyscrapers near where I live, you will find pictures below.
Well, this is the internet. I'm not out to convincing skeptics. I was one of you. And I wanted to stay one of you, with all my heart.
Can't dismiss what I've seen, but I want to take an objective approach to this - I reiterate that I cannot affirm anything more than my direct experience, which is seeing a flying light making circles in the sky. Beyond that, I cannot say.
I'm quite rational, so let's avoid the "psychic, alien contact" discussions.
