INCREDIBLE UFO’S WITNESSED OVER ILLINOIS
5-3-10 McHENRY ILLINOIS
It was a beutiful spring day in Mchenry Illinois. After doing my chores on my farm, I sat in the shade and was admiring the clouds in the sky. I was wearing polarized sunglasses if that made any difference, I don’t know for sure. After about a half an hour I saw a small flash of light next to one of the clouds. I focused my eyes on that spot. At first I thought they were giant birds diving in and out of it but later I realized this did not make sense because that is not common practice for any bird I know of that does this sort of thing. I observed the objects for about 30 to 45 seconds before running for my camera. They were gone when I got back. What I saw were round (percieved from a distance) objects diving in and out of a cloud in a slight arc fashion. One at a time they would do this. They would climb back up in a stairstepping motion. What was interesting they reacted to the sun once a reflection was made they would Dive “reflection” then climb, dive “reflection” then climb, dive “reflection” then climb. They formed a conterclockwise eccentric circle. There are many reports from the 1940’s till current that were and are identical to mine. What I find very intersting about my sighting was that I observed their behavior. A reaction to the sun tells me these were not mechanical craft but living creatures that we publically are not informed of. The author of the book Unconventional flying objects by Paul R. Hill, I believe a scientist for N.A.S.A. claims he saw objects forming the same eccentric type circle that I saw and also states that another object flew in from another direction shortly after the circling display. This is another reason why I believe that some are more a living thing than nuts and bolts craft because of the reaction to the circle signaling manuever. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

FAMILY’S CLOSE ENCOUNTER IN ROCHESTER MINNESOTA
3-24-66 ROCHESTER MINNESOTA
Mother and Father were riding in there Lincoln heading east from the Zumbro river to highway 63 when the spotted a bright light out in the field about 15 to 20 feet off the ground keeping pace with their car. When they stopped at a stop sign the objected stopped and his engine died as well as his radio going dead. His headlights and all lights in the car went out at the same time. The light then took off in the same easterly direction and my Dad then was able to restart the car and all electronics came back to normal function. They then chased the light that was on there right side (south side) of the road and it gained speed and crossed in front of the car and shot off to the north at an incredible speed and disappeared. This is the story that they told me when they got home and called me about the episode. Thats all I know about it. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

STRANGE HI-ALTITUDE OBJECT HOVERING OVER CHICAGO
8-26-12 BURR RIDGE ILLINOIS
At around 3:50 AM on Sunday, August 26th, 2012, I noticed a strange object in the night sky. I was looking through a sky light in my bathroom and noticed a small star, plane or satellite moving across the sky. It was moving north and I was looking east. I thought that it might be a satellite because it was going too slowly to be a plane. It then did something strange. It stopped and started to descend a bit. It then lined itself up between two stars that I could see in the sky. From where I stood it appeared to have a triangular form. Not sure how to describe this but it had three seperate areas where the light was emitted. The object shone like a star, but it was very different. I watched it line up with the stars but I knew that this was not a star at all. I quickly ran and got my IPhone. I took two seperate videos of the object and they didnt look like much, but the interesting thing is that the other stars did not show up on the video but this one did. I also zoomed in and took a picture of the object. I enlarged it on my TV set the next day and it was remarkable. It looked like some kind of ship although the picture is very grainy. It had three large dark circles under it and it was emitting light. It was definitely not a star. Again, none of the other stars even showed up on my phone. It was late and I was tired and I went back to bed. I got up 20 minutes later and checked to see if it was still there. It was still there. I went back to bed, but this time I fell asleep. It rained hard the next night so I did not have the chance to see if it would return. In my opinion, it was hovering over the city of Chicago for some reason. I guess we are not alone in this big universe as it seems that someone is watching us! NOTE: The above image was submitted by the witness.

STRANGE BALLS OF FIRE OVER THREE TOWNS IN OHIO
8-25-12 1 AM GIRARD OHIO
Two fiery balls flown over the house tops. Neighbor saw the first one coming then we saw the second one coming shortly behind it. They both came from the south and headed to the north. Both had no sound. We lost sight of the objects as it continued north behind houses.
8-25-12 8 PM CHIPPEWA LAKE OHIO
My family (wife, 2 kids 10 and 7) had just bought ice cream cones and began walking home west on heather hedge dr in Chippewa lake. A nearby 12 year old boy pushing a girl in a stroller was heard saying “I dont know what that is. What is it?” I looked to see what the boy was talking about and he was looking skyward. I looked up and saw an orange fireball flying at airplane altitude. We were just 20 miles or so from CLE airport. My whole family saw this fireball hovering then moving in a erratic path. I pointed out that it had no blinking lights as a plane should. As we watched it pause then begin to move again it disappeared instantly. My wife commented that it was as if it knew we were watching it so it disappeared. The boy who alerted us to the object said he could still see it but it was not glowing. It was not visible to me or my family at the point.
8-25-12 10 PM BEDFORD OHIO
Hi my name is Joe and I live in Bedford Ohio. I wish I could say I saw this sighting first hand but it was my grandmother. It was approximately 10 o’clock pm on Saturday August 25TH. My grandma described it as a rectangular shaped fire in the sky that traveled slowly with no sound over from east to west then took an erratic turn more towards Lake Erie direction. I did a google search about this sighting and found two other sightings similar to what my grandma described on this day. Thanks for running this website I am very fascinated with these stories and love to think about what is out there. Special thanks to Joe Mislosky for reporting this to World UFO Photos.

AMERICAN HERO ..ASTRONAUT NEIL ARMSTRONG DIES AT 82
CINCINNATI — Neil Armstrong was a soft-spoken engineer who became a global hero when as a steely-nerved pilot he made “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step onto the moon. The modest man, who had people on Earth entranced and awed from almost a quarter-million miles away, but credited others for the feat, died Saturday. He was 82.
Armstrong died following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures, his family said in a statement. Armstrong had had a bypass operation this month, according to NASA. His family didn’t say where he died; he had lived in suburban Cincinnati.
Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969, capping the most daring of the 20th century’s scientific expeditions. His first words after becoming the first person to set foot on the surface are etched in history books and the memories of those who heard them in a live broadcast.
“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” Armstrong said.
(Armstrong insisted later that he had said “a” before man, but said he too couldn’t hear it in the version that went to the world.)
In those first few moments on the moon, during the climax of a heated space race with the then-Soviet Union, Armstrong stopped in what he called “a tender moment” and left a patch to commemorate NASA astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts who had died in action.
“It was special and memorable but it was only instantaneous because there was work to do,” Armstrong told an Australian television interviewer this year.
Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the lunar surface, collecting samples, conducting experiments and taking photographs.
“The sights were simply magnificent, beyond any visual experience that I had ever been exposed to,” Armstrong once said.
The moonwalk marked America’s victory in the Cold War space race that began Oct. 4, 1957, with the launch of the Soviet Union’s Sputnik 1, a 184-pound satellite that sent shock waves around the world.
Although he had been a Navy fighter pilot, a test pilot for NASA’s forerunner and an astronaut, Armstrong never allowed himself to be caught up in the celebrity and glamour of the space program.
“I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer,” he said in February 2000 in one of his rare public appearances. “And I take a substantial amount of pride in the accomplishments of my profession.”
A man who kept away from cameras, Armstrong went public in 2010 with his concerns about President Barack Obama’s space policy that shifted attention away from a return to the moon and emphasized private companies developing spaceships. He testified before Congress and in an email to The Associated Press, Armstrong said he had “substantial reservations,” and along with more than two dozen Apollo-era veterans, he signed a letter calling the plan a “misguided proposal that forces NASA out of human space operations for the foreseeable future.”
Armstrong was among the greatest of American heroes.

MANY WITNESSES TO MANEUVERING ORANGE ORBS OVER ILLINOIS
1974 McHENRY ILLINOIS
The year was 1974 and on one warm summer night about 9 p.m. my family and I were playing a card game. Our house was located on Old Mchenry Rd. between Forest Lake and Hawthorn woods Illinois. We were into our game for about an hour when a car drove fast up our driveway. We realized it was a friend of ours. What was strange was she never came over this late. She ran towards our door we were all looking out of. We wondered what was going on for her to be here at this hour. She said there’s ufos everywhere. We all looked at each other and asked “what’s a ufo” ?? Seeing I was only ten then and can honestly say I never heard that term before. We walked out side and started looking into the night sky not knowing what we were about to see. I pointed up and said look at that orange light. Then we noticed that there were at least five or six of them positioned in the sky. Not in any formation but just randomly spread out and not moving. The color resembled that of a campfire that’s glowing deep orange. Matter of fact I can say that I’ve never seen that much of color ever since. We were all looking at the lights for a while when one started coming our direction. It stopped almost directly overhead. Seconds later another one moved closer. One at a time these lights moved nearer to us. By this time we were all getting scared so we called our friends husband and told him what was happening. He drove over within minutes and also was looking at the lights. By this time they were all around the house above and near our 2/3 acres. 2 or 3 hundred feet up. Maybe less because one of the lights hovered then decended over the swamp which was about 2 or 3 hundred yard away. It was out of sight for 30 seconds or so then rose to it’s original hovering position. The Lake County Sheriffs dept. was called and two deputies arrived shortly after. They didn’t have to ask us what was going on because they saw them right away. Here we were just staring at these lights with the deputies, admiring their orangeness. One at a time they would move then stop, move then stop,move then stop. Like they were looking for something. One of the lights moved very close to another then hovered next to it momentarily then moved back to it’s original position. Drivers by were pulling over seeing what we were seeing. After two hours or so they took off into space (one at a time) leaving an orange streak in their wake. The objects were about 3 times the size of venus when it is in full view. The color orange was undescribable. I guess you couldn’t get it more orange than that. What they were can only be a guess. This incident happened 38 years ago and is burned into my memory. Seeing this started my quest to gain knowlege of what we saw and what others may have seen in the world. NOTE: The above image is a rendering. Special thanks to the witness Ben Garfield.

MYSTERIOUS OBJECT SPOTTED OVER BRICK NEW JERSEY
8-18-12 BRICK NEW JERSEY
My daughter spotted an object in the sky. It was approx. 5000 to 10,000 ft in the air on a partly cloudy day. The temp was 73 degrees. The object was floating from The Garden State Parkway, around exit 91, towards South East to the ocean below Brick twp and Mantaloking beaches. It seemed to be odd shaped almost the size of two school buses side by side wide. Definetly metalic with red and greenish orange coloring, possibly from the sun. I started to take video of it and it was very hard to get excellent video shot on it although I tried to stop the shaking. It was far and I kept on losing sight of it. There was no noise. There were no Chem Trails, no smoke, no Wings, nothing! It happened quickly, it was not rising, it was traveling straight. Fort Dix is about an hour away south west and there is Lakehurst Naval Air Station. There is also a Trans-Atlantic cargo plane that flys in from the ocean and heads west around 2:00 pm daily. Also the Banner planes fly over the area which you see when you are at the beach in their single engine prop jobs. Coast guard Helicopters fly past but without any mistake this was not a Aircraft, Blimp or Balloon. It was absolutely something else. Approx 2 hours after that four F-16s flew in the same direction and on the next day F-16s took the same path the opposite way. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

INCREDIBLE DISC SHAPED OBJECT OVER BRISTOL VIRGINIA
8-21-12 BRISTOL VIRGINIA
I was driving home on West State in Bristol, TN. sometime between 10:30-11:00 on Tuesday night and I happened to see a bright object in the sky. I live in a town called Bristol, which is literally split down the middle by the state line. One half is in Virginia and the other half is in Tennessee. At the time that I witnessed whatever this was, I was on the TN side, but I could tell that the object was in the sky on the VA side. There is an airport in Blountville, TN which isn’t very far from Bristol, so seeing things in the air isn’t unusual. At first, I assumed it was just an airplane. As I drove further down the road, the light in the sky got brighter and it seemed like the object was going slowly across the sky. As I got closer to the light, it seemed to change direction rather easily, so I immediately thought it was a helicopter. Seeing a helicopter isn’t that unsual, our local hospital has one for emergencies and the police department has one too(I think). Finally, I came to stop at a traffic light. The light was red for maybe a couple of minutes. I never took my eyes off of the light in the sky while I sat there. As I sat there, I witnessed the light in the sky come further down from the sky. Then it stopped and just hovered there for a moment and changed direction, then it stopped again and abruptly changed direction again. At this point, I started thinking that this was definitely not an airplane and the odds of it being a helicopter was beginning to seem slim as well. Finally, the traffic light turned green and I drove down State Street here in Bristol. State Street is literally split into the TN and the VA side. Thankfully, there wasnt any traffic behind me, so I drove rather slow down the road. At this point, I could see whatever was in the sky very clearly. I was literally right underneath it and as dangerous as this sounds, I had my head out the window looking up at it as I was doing my best to not run into any cars or people. It was an oval/disk shaped object that was surrounded by lights. I am not good with distances, but whatever this was, was rather low. Low enough that I could actually see the underside of it being a slightly different color than the night sky. The lights surrounding the object were of a reddish/orange color. It made no sound at all, it was completely quiet. Yet another reason why I dont think it was a helicopter. I’ve seen and heard helicopters before, they can be quite loud, epsecially that low in the sky. Finally some traffic got behind me and I had to speed up, and I was no longer underneath of it. I looked into my rearview and it was gone….gone that quickly. I even stuck my head out of the window at the next red light and looked back and I saw nothing. It was like it was never there. I’ll say this before I go any further, I do believe in UFOs. I’m not saying that they are extraterrestrials, all I’m saying is that there are things in the skies sometimes that cannot be explained by conventional reasons. I honestly think I saw something that fits that category. It wasn’t an airplane. I truly don’t think it was a helicopter. It wasn’t a blimp. It wasn’t a weather balloon. It wasn’t Venus and it sure as heck wasn’t swamp gas. Unless it was a drone or some other type of remote control hovering/flying/disappearing vehicle, then I am out of things that it could be.

CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH A STRANGE OBJECT IN TEXAS
7-14-12 MILANO TEXAS
This morning at 05:20 AM Saturday, 14 July, 2012, I was riding in the front seat as a passenger coming back from a gig in Brazoria, Texas. We switched positions in the truck just prior to this event. I was sitting in the front seat passenger side of the truck. We were traveling on State highway 36 going Northwest bound just out of Milano. Steve, the driver, and I saw what looked like to be lights on what we thought could have been a tower a mile or so away. As we got closer, we realized that the lights were not on a tower but seemed to be suspended over the road. The lights were part of an object that seemed to be shaped like a pentagon. The light in the center was brighter than the other five and was located in the center of the underside of the object. The five other lights were located close to the end of each corner of the underside of the pentagon-shaped object. All the lights were white and pulsated about once a second. We could see that the object had shape and a surface with seams or vents. The object seemed to be dull black or charcoal in color. It seemed to hover over the road approximately 30 feet in altitude as we passed underneath it going about 60 mph. The object appeared to be 20-30 ft across. We saw it fade in the rear view mirror as we drove farther away. It made no noise that we could hear over the noise of the car engine. NOTE: The above image is a rendering by the witness.

VERY WEIRD OBJECT PHOTOGRAPHED OVER HUDSON ILLINOIS
8-18-12 HUDSON ILLINOIS
I was out that evening looking at some strangely lit clouds to the west, took some long exposure pics of them, then turned my attention to the new wind turbines they put in. They were back lit by the city light glow from the Southeast, so I took a couple of long exposure pics of them as well. In the middle of one of the exposures I’m scanning the sky at just before 9:30pm, and see a white solid light real close to the horizon to my east southeast. I figure its an airplane on approach to the local terminal but then it starts moving away from the airport, then vanishes. Ok it was a plane taking off, staying FAR to low to the ground, and turns off its lights, nope. It reappears same place it vanished but higher in the sky, sits there vanishes, reappears same spot, flys left, flys right. I’m canceling the long exposure pic of the turbines and trying to get this white light into focus but it is behind the corn stalks its so low, then it pops straight up, and sits there. I quickly get it as focused as I could and take a 60 second long exposure pic of it. It sits there for about 10 seconds. No noise, its between 5 and 8 miles away, not moving. I’m wondering if I got my lights mixed up as my eyes were on setting the camera. Then it vanishes to my eye and instantly it is lower to the corn field barely visible to me from where I was standing and began moving south again real slow and as it glided along the light slowly faded. I hoped it was still in the camera view port. The one minute exposure ended. I hoped and prayed the battery life of the camera would hold on long enough to finish the long exposure recording the low battery light had been flashing a few minutes beforehand. I hopped in the car and headed home. I looked at the pic once I got home on the camera LCD display. When it was higher in the sky and vanished to instantly appear closer to the ground and move off to the right. That vanishing point was actually it making an incredible maneuver! I caught it on film thank god. It made an upwards arc like a lowercase “n” and dropped further down to the field at full bright again and moved slowely off to the right. No flashing. I put the picture on the computer and could see the loop no problem and when I printed it, it came out too dark to see the loop, so I made a copy of the pic and altered the copy to be lighter to be able to see the arc, as it is seen on the camera display. I have not downloaded it off the disk. And the original is still intact and unaltered.

INCREDIBLE SIGHTING OVER BISHOP CALIFORNIA
5-21-12 BISHOP CALIFORNIA
On my way home from work on Monday, May 21, 2012 at about 9:40 PM, I was driving west on West Line Street just past Barlow lane, heading to my home which is north of Bishop. It is a fairly dense residential area. Suddenly, through the trees to the north, my attention was drawn to a very bright red light. It outshown every other light in view. Since it was low, no more than a hundred yards off the ground, I was confused by what I was seeing. At first, I thought it was a light on top of some radio tower, but there isn’t any such tower in the area. Then, I could see it was slowly moving in my direction. I thought it was too low to be an aircraft, and I have never seen such a bright red light on an aircraft. I slowed my car, and watched intently as the light passed over the trees and into the clear sky above me. It passed slowly over the two-lane road on which I was driving, no more than two or three hundred feet in front of and above me. I would estimate its speed as no more than ten to fifteen miles per hour. What had first appeared as a solid red light wasnt solid at all. It was a spherical object, made up of a geometric assembly of very bright red lights, each apparently identical and equally bright. The lights didn’t blink on and off, and did not vary in intensity. I would estimate the size of the sphere as no more than ten or fifteen feet in diameter, about the size of a small car, and as it moved, it was quite clear that the lights were evenly spaced, geometrically all around the sphere. I counted five lights on one hemisphere. It looked like some kind of huge lighted Christmas ornament. And it was beautiful. I was amazed and completely awe-struck by what I was watching. I pulled the car to the side of the road, stopped and rolled down the window, which provided a clear and distinct view of the sphere, which was by now no more than 200 feet away. I was able to estimate its height and distance by comparing it to trees alongside the road. It was completely silent, seemingly floating in the air. It continued its southward course, and as it passed by, the rear of the object came into view. I was struck by how evenly spaced the lights were all around the outside of the sphere. The red lights had an intense, radiant quality. They were very bright, and I could make out each individual light. It was like a ball of evenly-spaced red lights. My view to the south was completely clear, unobstructed by trees or buildings. I watched the sphere as it continued slowly south for perhaps a half-mile, clearly silhouetted against the dark night sky. The red lights remained on. Then, it accelerated abruptly, and moved up so quickly that it disappeared in the darkness. There was nothing left to see but the stars. The entire episode lasted about two minutes, perhaps less. I looked at the clock in my car when I first realized what I was seeing, and again after the object disappeared. I wasn’t drinking, or under the influence of any substance. I have never seen anything like it. I am convinced that it wasn’t any kind of aircraft; not an airplane, or a helicopter, or any kind of balloon. There was no wind, and absolutely no sound whatsoever. NOTE: The above image was submitted by the witness.

8-14-12 BOOMERANG SHAPED OBJECT WITNESSED OVER ROCKAWAY NEW JERSEY
Hi Ken, Woke up this morning at 3 a.m. Had a headache so I decided to go out and take some fresh air and look for falling stars/ meteor shower activity behind the house in car parking area. The sky was partly clear, with some high cirrus clouds in one section. Could see planet (Venus?) in SE along with the Pleiades and other stars. I did see a few faint meteors in the approximately Southern sky. There were also a few aircraft flying by mostly in the Eastern sky. Then an odd thing popped into view. It was a winglike nearly straight modified boomerang shape. It glowed softly and had no navigation lights. It flew on a fairly straight path from nearly overhead to a generally south direction when it disappeared over the rooftop. It was visible from 2-5 seconds. The three unusual characteristics were the shape (wing with no fuselage), popping into view, and the soft glow which emanated from it. I estimate the time of the sighting to be 3:50 am. I went back inside at that point because being alone outside had given me a hinky feeling. I checked the time when I hopped back into bed- 4 am. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

FIRST RECORDED UFO SIGHTING IN NORTH AMERICA [U.S.A.]
In March 1639, America’s first recorded UFO was sighted late one night over the Charles River in Boston, Massachusetts. Lights sped back and forth across the Charles River from Back Bay Fens to Charlestown. Governor John Winthrop made an entry in his journal regarding this strange event. This account was later published in The Journal of John Winthrop, 1630-1649 (John Harvard Library)
The witness and incident were described as follows:
“One night in March of 1638 or 1639, James Everell (“a sober, discreet man”- Winthrop) and two companions boarded a little boat and set out for a trip on the Muddy River in Boston. They had been moving downstream for about a mile when the night’s mysterious events began. The three men were suddenly confronted with the appearance of a huge, bright light hovering in the sky. The light “flamed up” as it hovered and appeared to be about “three yards square.” As they watched, the light “contracted into the figure of a swine” and moved “swift as an arrow” in the direction of Charlton [Charlestown]. For two or three hours, the unidentified light moved back and forth in the sky between Everell’s location and Charlton. When the light finally disappeared, the men noticed to their dismay that they had somehow been carried against the tide back to the place where they had started their trip! Governor Winthrop noted, “Divers[e] other credible persons saw the same light, after, about the same place.”!”
Governor Winthrop appears to have been puzzled by the occurrence, devoting no less than two separate notes about it in the index to his history. The first merely gives a lengthy rendering of the sobriety and piety of the primary witness James Everell (“a good man of reputation, activity and good estate”) and another detailed note speculating whether the sighting was due to “demonic influences” or was ghost lights or will o’ the wisps (an early version of swamp gas).
It’s worth noting that the figure in the sky appeared to turn into “the figure of a swine.” Everell was a leather dresser, meaning he worked with the hides of animals, tanned them, and turned them into leather goods. The “swine” or pig was the only shape in his mind that he could relate to. A far as legs of the swine, is it possible that these were struts or landing gear of a craft?
Winthrop’s account also claims the event lasted two or three hours, which rules out any chance of the object being a meteor. 1638 was almost 150 years before the first balloon flights, so the possibility of the object being man-made is also ruled out. The witness also claims that their small boat was pushed back against the tide about one mile (back to where they first set their boat in the water) while they watched the object in the sky. Could this be a “lost time” phenomena? Were they physically moved by the object in the sky? Could it be they were mistaken as to the tide because they were distracted by the unidentified object in the sky? This UFO close encounter may have been more close than originally thought.
As to Winthrop’s trust of the witness, stating that he was “a sober, discreet man”
he also included a footnote about Everell: “He was a man of reputation, activity and good estate in Boston many years afterwards. With his wife, Elizabeth, he had been received into Boston church 20 of July, 1634, being Nos. 239, 240. His will, made 11 December, 1682, proved 2 February following, is found in our Probate Registry, vol. VI. 400.”
The following footnote about the sighting was added in the 1825 edition of Winthrop’s Journal:
“This account of an ignis fatuus [pale light over marshy ground] may easily be believed on testimony less respectable than that which was adduced. Some operation of the devil, or other power beyond the customary agents of nature, was probably imagined by the relaters and hearers of that age, and the wonder of being carried a mile against the tide became important corroboration of the imagination. Perhaps they were wafted [carry lightly], during the two or three hours’ astonishment, for so moderate a distance, by the wind; but, if this suggestion be rejected, we might suppose, that the eddy [whirlpool], flowing always, in our rivers, contrary to the tide in the channel, rather than the meteor, carried their lighter back.” NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH A USO IN SAN SALVADORE
10-7-76 SAN SALVADORE BRAZIL
Three friends and I went to my High School graduation Celebration Dance in San Salvador, Capital city of El Salvador (Central America) we arrived to the place at about 8pm. We spent about 3 hours there and suddenly we decided to go to a beach in a place called Conchalio in the state of La libertad, about 45 minutes of San Salvador. Since one of my friends got his fathers car (a Chevrolet 1956) we arrived to the beach place at about 11:45pm. Checked in the Hotel and went to a place to get some food and drinks (I do not drink nor smoke) but two of may friends were drinking part of the night. We were talking to each other under an almond tree in front of the beach, when suddenly an object shapped like a disk with some dome form and lights all over came down and suddenly hovering for about 50 seconds. It was projecting a very intense light over the water (we were approximately about 400 feet of distance to the object). We though it was a giant pole of a ship, but when it started spinning with many colorful lights on it and the big light started a twist on the water, all of us knew it was a UFO because it suddenly disapeared into the water and it did not appeared again. We did not see any splash at all because the water was moving around like creating a tunnel or hole in the water. After that moment we decided to go back to the hotel about one block from the place because we were scared about what happened. That morning I commented the incident to some people from the hotel and they told me that those things use to happen very often in that particular area and no one makes a big deal of that anyway.
