The #1 UFO Resource
I saw what was probably the first ufo of 2017 in my time zone. exactly at the stroke of midnight on new year's, i stepped outside to make a wish for the year on sirius, the brightest star in the sky. it's a whimsical tradition i've had for decades. as soon as i made my wish, a ufo appeared out of nowhere, about 1/2 inch at arm's length, directly to the left of sirius. sirius was directly to the south of me, as my house faces in that direction. the ufo was 3 very bright, white star-like lights in a row, perfectly spaced, like orion's belt. the distance from the first star to the last was about 1/2 inch at arm's length. the lights traveled silently, single file, in a northward direction until they passed beyond the roof line of the house. the sighting lasted approximately 4 seconds. i could not tell if it was 3 lights on a single craft, or if it was 3 separate craft flying in formation one behind the other. one thing i do know for sure is that it was a great way to start the year!
