Subject: UFO sighting
I stumbled on your website by mere chance. Impassioned since childhood by the science fiction, I was rocked by I.Asimov, A. Clarke and Co. Fan of Xfiles and other nice series on these subjects, I am thus rather open on the subject of UFOs but I was always very skeptic, thinking that they were fantasies of rather nevrotic people or despaired people, to need to believe that they are not alone in the universe.
I won't talk about the paradox of some professor I do not remember who explained that if there was a society sufficiently advanced to reach us they would have already contacted us or, by concern of noninterference, would have isolated us from any contact.
Armed with all these convictions, I never spoke to anyone about what I managed to observe several months ago during the autumn of 2004.
I was at a friends' dinner in Claye Souilly in the 77 [department] in France. It was one o'clock in the morning, I went outside on the terrace to smoke a cigarette. The weather was cold and dry. Clear sky.
Three very clear lights of white yellow color appeared on my right at the horizon (45░ compared to my position) in the sky. The lights were not dazzling.
They crossed the sky from my right to my left while passing almost abovehead following a very rectilinear way. This crossing did not last more than 5 seconds. hey disappeared approximately at the same height that they appeared on the horizon.
2 things puzzled me :
This crossing of the sky was very fast. I had already been able to see jets passing at low altitude and speeds seeming similar. That made noise. The engines very well are heard. There, there wasn't any noise!!! If the airplane had been too high to hear the engines, it would have crossed the horizon much slowler. Or then, it was going very very fast.
The second point particularly disturbed me. The configuration of the lights changed during the travel.
On my right they formed a line. They were put themselves in triangle above me of me while changing places. It was like this:
That's it. I do not know what I saw but I am eager for an explanation.
So long and thank you for your website
