UFO Sightings UFO News Reports

UFO Sighting dull gray color was reflecting morning sunlight Mill Valley CA 11/18/16

I live in a small town about 10 miles north of San Francisco. 

It was a bright sunny morning and I was at home. I had opened the door to let my cat out on the deck like I do every morning. He ran out and stopped on a dime, looked up at the sky, then ran back into the house with his ears flat back. I stepped out onto the deck to see what had scared him. 

I looked up and saw a round UFO in the sky to the north. I immediately knew it was a UFO because I've seen three other UFO Sightings prior to this. It was about the size of a small pea in the sky, and was fairly close, I'd say about 400-500 feet high and about 1000-1500 feet in the distance. 

The UFO was spherical in shape, very light gray in color with whitish fuzzy edges. The surface was dull, not shiny, and I noticed it appeared to be reflecting sunlight. There were no distinguishing features - no portals, lights, colors or sound. 

When I first saw the UFO it was moving northwest very slowly in a zigzag path, but then it abruptly turned and came directly towards me. It got close enough to be about the size of an aspirin when it stopped and hovered in the air for about 8-10 seconds. I got the impression it was checking me out. As I watched this UFO it morphed into a square with rounded corners then back to a sphere again. This happened 3-4 times. The gray color and white edges remained the same. 

The UFO began to slowly move away from me, resuming its zigzag path to the northwest. I got the feeling it was looking for something. Suddenly it just disappeared, just winked out. The entire sighting lasted 40-45 seconds. 

This was a strange encounter. When I first saw this UFO I felt dread - I don't know why. Then when it came directly towards me I was paralyzed by fear. When the UFO stopped and hovered I wondered if it was trying to communicate with me. Once it began moving away from me I suddenly realized that I was calm and unafraid, as if I hadn't just experienced something extraordinary. As for my cat, he was scared and jumpy for about a week after this incident. mufon cms# 81507

I realized today (this Friday, January 13, 2017)... and for the first time in my many years of pursuing UFOs!... that I've been using the wrong term to identify what I've been examining, and came up with the expressions, AFO and EFO, respectively!... for Alien Flying Object and Extraterrestrial Flying Object! And... afterupon entering Alien Flying Object in Google's search bar, I discovered that "Alien Flying Object"/ "AFO" were terms first coined in 1969 by scientist William Hartmann (reportedly!) in a paper presented to a symposium on UFOs, sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science... and to denote a vehicle constructed by alien intelligence! His intention in creating the expressions-- so said!-- was to reduce the confusion incurred by those who use the term UFO to signify an "extraterrestrial spacecraft"! However, Alien flying object/ AFO have not become widely used expressions in UFOlogical terminology!
To sum up, oblivious to William Hartmann's "semantic efforts" altogether before Googling my expressions, I FULLY AGREE that "UFO" is the WRONG EXPRESSION to be using!... and, inasmuch, as I-- for one!-- AM NOT interested in UNIDENTIFIED OBJECTS, A-T A-L-L!... but, ONLY THOSE objects that/ which have LEGITIMATE EVIDENCE of being ALIEN/ EXTRATERRESTRIAL (and hence, my support for BOTH AFO and EFO!)! If they're "UNIDENTIFIED", T-H-E-N T-H-E-Y A-R-E N-O-T T-O B-E "I-D-E-N-T-I-F-I-E-D" A-S "A-L-I-E-N" O-R "E-X-T-R-A-T-E-R-R-E-S-T-R-I-A-L"!... D-U-H!! And the only reason-- I feel!-- that the majority of "UFOLOGISTS" have retained the term "UFO", is that these have simply not been made aware of this subtle distinction! And if the majority were introduced to same, these would begin to include these terms within their day-to-day discussions!... and the transition AWAY from UFO would become manifest! There would be NO REASON-- I.E., L-O-G-I-C-A-L R-E-A-S-O-N!-- for this not to occur!
And so... and from henceforth!... whenever I have the opportunity to make comment on a UFO website about the subject, I will endeavour to bring up this distinction! For!... the only way to get the word out!... is to go to where the UFO dialogue is!... not the other way around! I might be happy in my newly found realization of the importance of this new way of viewing the subject, but, if I limit my "discovery" to MY "intrapersonal sphere of influence", I shouldn't expect an "interpersonal/ transcendent sphere of influence" to emerge! And afterupon transforming our respective and collective dialogue/ s in this more efficient and effective manner, we can then place the "UFO" discussions where they belong!... i.e., within the PURELY "U-N-I-D-E-N-T-I-F-I-E-D" category (AND THUS, N-O-T "ALIEN", OR "EXTRATERRESTRIAL"!)! And as the TRUTH has a habit of "winning the day", the transition-- I feel!-- is INEVITABLE!
Please!... no emails!
