I was shooting basketball hoops in the back yard and I could see the outside sky thru a couple of small cracks in the old barn siding. I had taken a shot at the basket and had walked to my left approximately 10ft to retrieve the basketball when something caught my attention. I can only describe it as a tremendos amount of concentrated energy. At that moment I could visibly see nothing but I knew something was there as I continued looking at that spot a ball of pulsating light appeared. I would say it was the size of a softball or maybe a little larger. My mind was trying to figure out what I was looking at. I stepped to my right a couple of steps and realized I could see behind this object and that it was just sitting in thr air pulsating. As I watched this object and my mind was scrambling trying to find an explanation, it expanded vertically and I found myself facing a alien with very large black eyes, a tiny nose, a slit for a mouth, very small flat ears and long fingers. I would say its height was less than 4ft. It appeared to be very light complected. It scared the hell out of me and I could feel some kind of energy hitting me in the lower forehead as if it was trying to communicate or observe me. I was aware it was moving closer and I ran ! I told my family I had seen a ghost. I did not know how else to explaine it. A short time later my mother and I were in the car driving when we drove up on a orange ball of light sitting in the air ,when we got close to it it just disappeared. We did not know what it was. About two years after my first encounter and in the same place I had a huge triangular shapped vehicle stop over my head. It was black in color and made no sound at all. It had 3 huge round lights, 1 on each corner with a panel of white lights across the rear. This ship was easily 400ft long. It sat above me for at least 10 minutes. I dont believe it could have been more than a couple hundred feet off the ground.when this craft started to move the large corner lights went to blue , green, and red. The rear lights flipped on in sequence left to right. It moved away in a very slow ne direction. No sound or air movment. I swear these events happened and I would not hesitate to take a lie detecter test. NOTE: The above image is a rendering. KENS NOTE: Many close encounter and abduction witness are usually visited many times over their life time. We are still trying to figure out what is really going on.
