UFO Sighting Vermilion, OH 2001
Date Submitted: 11/06/2011
Hopefully someone can relate to what I saw several years ago. It was very very scary and of course I haven't told anyone but my Dad in fear that people would think I was crazy.
It was the Fall of 2001 in a somewhat small city in Vermilion, OH. In fact, I wouldn't call it small. I had recently come home from basic training with the military and was temporarily staying with my Father. I wanted to keep up with physical fitness so I would go running at night. I am a very timid and very self conscious of my body so I wouldn't run during the day.
So one lovely night that the stars were shining bright and there wasn't a cloud in the sky, I took off for my run. As I was running, I look up at the sky and thought how beautiful and vibrant it was. I saw a tiny star up there but it was shining very bright. Then in a matter of seconds the "star" was right over top of me. I stopped running and looked up with complete bewilderment. The object didn't make a sound at all. Nothing. Not a hum or jangle whatsoever. There were lights on the bottom but they weren't very bright. The lights were kinda in a box formation and each box would brighten up at different times. There was no sequence to it. The "star" itself was rectangle. Not round or oval but rectangle.
I stood there for a minute trying to make sense of what I was seeing and that it had some sort of explanation. Then fears began to overwhelm me. I took off running as fast as I could to a nearby shelter and crouched down by a rock. My heart was beating a hundred miles a minute and I was scared to death. It stayed there hovering, with no sound, and was gently moving forward. As if the wind was pushing. But there was no wind that night. Finally I got the guts up to run back to the house as fast as I could. I opened the door and slammed it closed, locking it immediately. I stood there pushed against the door trying to catch my breath. My Dad started screaming "what's the matter! What happened! What the hell is going on!" I told him that I saw something in the sky and that it appeared extremely quickly and made no noise. He flung open the door and walked outside, searching the sky. I screamed to him and told him to come inside. He started laughing and said that there was nothing out there. So I walked outside and sure enough there was nothing there. Not even a bright star or nothing.
So then I thought I was going crazy and that I really didn't see anything. That my imagination was running wild. I went inside the house and eventually went to sleep.
I woke up the next morning, started to drink some coffee and watch the news. On the news, the anchor started to say that several calls were made to the police last night stating that they had seen something unusual in the sky last night. I started to feel a chocking sensation and anxiety was taking over. I did see something last night and I apparently wasn't the only one. But in this case, I was the person who was right underneath this "star" that was hovering over.
I feel as though I'm completely in the dark on this one. Just to sum it up:
It came from extremely far away and was hovering over me in a matter of seconds
Rectangle in shape
Had different colored lights on the bottom
It made no noise at all
Then moved very slowly as it was hovering over top of me.
