Subject: UFO sighting
I have just discovered this website (which is excellent and useful in my opinion) and it is after having started to browse though it that I decided to tell about an incident which occurred when I was 10 or 11 years old, about 1993.
It occurred in the Hautes-Pyrénées. It must have been between 11 p.m. and midnight and I was outside. My mother and I had just said goodbye to our neighbors and my mother returned inside the house. I remained outside for some more seconds and I felt a movement in the edge of my vision and I looked towards the sky. I saw an object moving at high speed from one to the other sides of the sky, from north towards the south. The sky was quite clear and I do not remember to have seen very luminous stars. It was rather one dark object moving on a black background, except that I did not have a doubt about his weirdness because it flew very low, too low for a plane and especially without any noise. I insist on the fact that it was completely silent. The form considering the height of the machine in the sky was unescapable in spite of the black. It was long, it did not have (without the shade of a doubt) any wings, it was of cylindrical form, with its two ends pointed but rounded and completely dark.
I observed it during a few seconds, the time it crossed the sky from one end to the other. It was really fast, and flew at a low but constant height.
I add that my father and my grandfather already had seen unidentified objects from the house of my grandparents isolated in the countryside on several occasions, luminous but this fact does not seem to puzzle them a lot, which seems to be also the case of many people from here who had similar experiences.
I only barely told about this anecdote. However, I must say that this image remained very well engraved in my memory and I do not have any doubt about its strangeness.
I am astonished to see that many people have similar experiences of strange observations of objects in the area but few see an importance in that, they do not seek an explanation and even less want to talk about it openly.
I am a law student and I make a point of saying that I do not believe at all in the paranormal. But do I need to add that of course the presence of UFOs has nothing to do with the paranormal but remains a scientific question?
I would like that the subject gets discussed more seriously, as it remains taboo, on television, or even quite simply in a normal discussion, without being viewed as insane.
Therefore thank you to allow people to tell, compare their experiences.
Very sincere greetings.
PS: I do not wish to publicizeg my name nor my email address. Thanks in advance.
