Lake Serene UFOs
In the late 1990s, my good friend purchased a home in the country, about 45 miles outside of the city of Birmingham, Alabama. This area was way off the beaten path, a few homes and farms dotted the landscape along the side of a winding and hilly two lane black-top road, in some sections there was only forest. The home was located on a dead-end road, on the shore of a small lake, called Lake Serene. A few other homes were built around the lake, not so many that they were close together, but a few.
She moved out there in the Fall of the year, so the first Winter, when I visited, we spent time indoors. I helped her unpack, paint rooms, decorate, etc. By Spring we were happy to move our improvement making time to the outdoors; planting, weeding, and such. The home was two stories, as it was built on the side of a hill, it looked like one story from the front, in back it was two. There was a patio on the lower level, off the basement den, above the patio, across the entire back of the house was a deck, accessed by sliding doors from either the dining area or the upstairs den.
During the day in the Summer we would make use of the lower patio to stay out of the sun. At night, we would turn out the lights, to keep the mosquitoes and other night insects away, and sit on the deck. Not that there was very much to observe, an occasional splash in the lake of a fish or a frog, or the neighbors across the lake. Mostly we would just sit, chat and look at the night sky. As it was so very dark out there, with hardly any lights from homes or street lighting, the stars were very bright.
Our vantage point gave us a view that was of a great distance. Not only were we on a second level deck, we were on the top of a small mountain, and could see above the top of the treeline on the horizon below us. We had been sitting out there over several weekends, when we decided that an object that we had been watching was not a planet or a star. We decided that it was not a satellite, or a plane or a helicopter, or a weather balloon. We watched planes, both large and small, as they passed over us and under the “thing”. We were located between three airports, one large and two small ones, so we had a variety of planes to compare to the “thing”. It seemed that the “thing” was basically staying in the same place in the sky. As we watched it we could see that it was a spinning orb shaped object and had what looked like multi-color lights encircling its middle. The lights ranged from pinks,to blue,to green, to gold and white.
We watched and we watched. During the week we spoke on the phone and she would check on the “thing” and give me a status report. The “thing” was still there. Then one weekend while we were watching the “thing” it started to move about. It would move up, then down, then side to side, all about, then move back to it’s previous location in the sky.
“Whoa!” we said to each other. “Do you think that “it” knows we are watching “it”?” The last thing, either of us wanted, was to become someone on a talk show describing how; “I have been the victim of an alien abduction”, to an audience of dis-believers or believers, for that matter. We went inside a couple of times, but, had to go back out and watch the “thing” because we were so amazed and curious.
As we watched the “thing” “dancing” around, we were really surprised when we saw another one coming to join it. At first we thought the second one was our imaginations running wild. It was really a second one, smaller than the original “thing”, but, the same orb shape with multi-color rings around the center. Then we see another one. Then another one. Then another. Until there were Five small orbs and one “Mother Ship”. They all danced about in the sky; up, down, right, left. When all at once, the small ones made a formation, and ZIP, ZIP, ZIP – all FIVE went aboard the “Mother Ship”! And it shot straight up into the air, to vanish in less than an instant! POOF! GONE!…
“WHOA!” We were amazed! Oh, my gosh! Had we really just seen that? Then a voice came out of the darkness, “You Girls see that?” Scared us to death! We had been so intent in our earnest discussion, we had not heard Mr. Armstrong, her neighbor, climbing the long stretch of wooden steps that brought him to the deck where we were.
“Oh, my goodness! Mr. Armstrong, you just about scared us to death!”
“Were you all watching that?” he asked, pointing to where it had just been.
“Yes! We saw it, we have been watching it. We can’t believe what we just saw. It had to be a UFO! Did you see it, too?”
“Oh, yes” he replied,” I saw it, I’ve been watchin’ it come and go, for YEARS.”
“FOR YEARS?!” we asked, “Really?”
“Oh, yes,” he assured us, “I have been sittin’ outside and watchin’ it for years. It has been comin’ and goin’ just like that for about as long as I have lived here; and that’s goin’ on about thirty years. Oh, well, I just wondered if you two saw it.” He chatted with us for a little longer and bade us good night. We were then nervous wrecks.
Time passed; days, weeks, then one day “It” was back! Shortly after that my friend sold her home and moved back into the city.
An interesting note; if you sit outside at night and gaze into the sky toward the west, where she used to live, you can still catch a glimpse of the “Thing” making a visit from time to time! I have noticed that researchers and observers have noted this type of UFO sighting at other locations. I am sure that there is more than one of these UFO’s studying us here on our planet.
We are not alone! We are not the only intelligent life forces! That, I am sure of. What about you?
