UFO Sighting Report


Around 1996-1997 during I suppose...mid-fall.


Portsmith, Virginia, United States


A odd object suddenly appeared in the sky above the forest near my house. I was suprised at how quietly it happened, that for a moment, I thought it had been there even longer. Normally people say these things go fast, which I noticed only briefly till it slowed above the forest, seeming to look for something.

No. of Witnesses: 



about 1 minute or less

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

A flat, circular object with lights of many colors spinning around the sides. Seemed to be dark, but with the moon's rays hitting it, might have been a sort of chrome color. There was also a half-sphere dome on top with what seemed like one big window that went around it.

Size of Object(s)

Relatively, at my size now, from my wrist to my elbow it was probably about 1 1/2 inches covering the UFO. Actual size, I want to say maybe 100-200ft wide by 30 ft tall.

Description of Area / Surroundings

I have talked to my mom (whom seems to be the only one who believes me and is trying to help me) and she said that Norfolk had most of the military bases and such as well as Virginia Beach. Our neighborhood was kind of seperated from other neighborhoods. Also, I remember just a lot of trees surounding our area. Basically wherever you looked, you could spot the many trees around us.

Full Description & Details

Okay, this happened when I was about 6 or 7. I am now 15 and everyday I thought about what I saw, but my memory is slightly blurred at everything which happened.

I am guessing it was mid-fall and I was supposed to be in bed. Well, being fully awake, I remeber I got out of bed and walked towards my window. The window had no screen, so when I opened it, I sat down on the floor and rested my head on my arms that were crossed on the window sill.

We lived in a particular area where our neighborhood was fairly small and was completely surrounded by woods. There was also a lake nearby, but I am not sure the object I saw had anything to do with the lake. I remember it being a dark night though the stars were clearly visible.

Alright, so I was staring off into the distance, thinking I saw a deer run across one of the streets into the forest. I remember being completely focused on the forest, till out of the corner of my eye, something soared quickly across the sky. Looking up, I remeber standing up and poking my head outside, watching it. It seemed to have noticed me, or something else for it had slowed its pace to where I could clearly watch it. It was fairly close towards the neighborhood, though it hovered along the forest top at a steady pace. I wasn't quiet sure what exactly it was doing, but to me, I felt like it was searching for something.

This entire thing last about a minute or less, for I watched it hover for a little bit and then in a blink of an eye, it sped off... But when it did so, it seemed to still be descending or staying around the same altitude.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No. Though the stars were out, they were not set up in a way to like a object speeding across the sky towards the forest, stop suddenly and slowly hover above, and then speed off again. I don't believe anything like airplans or such could stop in a sudden moment and stay so perfectly still before moving along at a slow pace. Also, from where my house was, there was no way for blimps or weather balloons to be seen.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

At the time, I had read books on aliens, though they were only children books. I never believed in them before. I actually thought it was just a made-up fantasy. But that night changed it all, where I spent most of my time now trying to figure out what exactly it was that I saw, as well as following along with other mysteries like Roswell or Kecksburg. Yes, after that sighting, I now believe they exist.

Other Comments

I know what I saw. So many people doubt me and the only person Iwho actually believes me is my mother, whom has also been intruged in these object since she heard about Roswell. All I can say is, just because I was young does not mean it was my imagination, nor a dream. I got hurt in the process of finding my parents to tell them, so others have no right to doubt me. Besides, I still can see the object in my head and I know what happened for I was there.
