One of my earliest memories is of a story my mother told about a UFO sighting, although she was always a little shy in actually calling it a UFO sighting. As her story goes, she was up in the night with a baby. Now, seeming she had 7 children between the years of 1940 and 1947, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly which baby she was tending on that mysterious night. To the best of my knowledge, it was my oldest brother, but it is possible it was one of the younger siblings.
She lived in a remote area in Maine, far from military bases or airports or any other form of industrial pursuits. She did not report her UFO sighting, partly because she didn’t know how to report a UFO, nor did she have a phone to report it with, and partly because she feared others would not believe her.
As her story goes, she and my father walked out onto the steps and noticed unusual lights in the sky. She described them as three lights evenly spaced that moved across the sky at a consistent pace.
As soon as one light reached the horizon and disappeared from sight, another would appear out of the opposite side of the sky and continue the progression across the sky. There were always three lights, with one disappearing and other appearing at the same time.
She said that she and my father watched these lights for over an hour and finally grew bored and went to bed.
It had been her theory that “the government” had been running some sort of “test” that night. Due to the fact that it was during the war, she theorized that it was kept from the news because it was military related.
I don’t know what my parents saw on that summer evening. I do know that my mother was not the kind of woman to make up stories; in fact, I can not recall even one incidence when my mother lied about anything.
I believe my parents did, indeed, watch a series of lights travel across the sky.

Reported UFO Sightings/UK
The UK is receiving its share of UFO reports too. A couple has reported observing five round orange objects in the sky. A separate witness observed what is assumed to be the same event, only he observed six fireballs in the sky. He claims they began disappearing and one of them shot into the other and veered off into space. A pilot and passengers are also reported to have seen two large “cigar-like” objects in the sky over the Channel Islands Full Story.
So, WHAT DO YOU THINK? Are these people all crackpots who want to see their name in print? Or could it be that something really is up there?
Are UFOs FACT or are they FICTION?
