Full Description & Details
Late in the evening on a fall night, anywhere from 8-9:30PM, me and a close friend of mine were walking down a dark street while everyone was in their house. The sky was clear enough to see stars. The air was cool. A decent evening. Then suddenly a craft appeared out of nowhere about 10 to 20 feet above a one story house. It remained motionlessly suspended in air above the house. I saw first then asked my friend if he could see it. He did and asked what was it? I couldn't answer him so we just stared at it. It was unlike anything we understood and I believe we never heard of UFO's at that time, and if we did, it meant nothing to us. As I stared, I sense that we (I) was being intensely observed. I could tell whatever it was, it was a living entity - I didn't understand what it was or what it wanted. I can remember very important details about it. It appeared to be an assembled craft (round, brightly lit, with an interior that I could not see, and air suspension). I said "appeared" to be an assembled craft because there were features that suggest otherwise. The exterior surface of the craft looked like skin membrane or some type of organic material. I say this because it had a little noticed genetic like birth mark. I say genetic in the sense that this birth mark wasn't highly visible, but I could see it on its underside. The mark had no linear or circular features nor any structured design or pattern. We did not see the craft approach the location - it was either there when we walked up or appeared. We could not see inside, but I sensed I was being looked at. Then suddenly, it moved backwards, not in the sense of real motion. Before a blink, It changed multiple locations in a trail of picture frames. This gave the appearance of it being in motion, switching from one spot to the next in a curved line of rapid succession. The succession picked up faster and faster until it was on the other side of the sky. This was a real incident that has embedded my memory. In retrospect, I believe multiple things were simultaneously going on - some illusory such as a bright light that didn't project itself onto surrounding surfaces. No mechanical sound - no physical machinery. Appearance looked like an assembled craft of inorganic material - but had a genetic mark as if it was organic. The size was also illusory. While looking at it - it the sense of being massive. When examining the area in the day, the house was small and the area was small meaning the craft had to be much smaller than it appeared. It's movement was not normal in the sense of a trajectory object. It simply changed locations by fractions of an inch, but I never saw it travel in terms of an actual rate, it simply disappeared and reappeared at a new location. This occurred so quickly that you would think it was in motion. I don't think it was. In other words, I think it appeared to be something other than what it actually was. It was real and I could tell it involved a living intelligence, but it was concealing itself. A person's first reaction would be hat it was an assembled craft of some kind of sophisticated machinery (popular consensus) but I saw other features that are inconsistent to this. I think the obvious is to shape the viewer's perspective by influencing their perception - but its not complete. The devil is in the details. I haven't seen my friend in many years.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
It cannot be explained by normal physics or physical laws

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I believe they are real and may be many different things; not just one class of things
