St. Louis (west) - 10-25-12
Two black circular objects flying through storm clouds in rotating flight pattern. The sighting occurred just before a rainstorm. I was standing at the top of my street since it has a pretty good view over Manchester Road and out West towards Weidman and Mason Road.
Black clouds were gathering and I was keeping my eye on them. Something caught my eye to the right and I focused on what it was. It appeared to be two black objects flying in a circular pattern, almost parallel to each other.
These were not birds or clouds and it was not just something caught in the wind. At least one of them I could tell had a definitive disk shape. It was hard to keep a steady view on the objects because they were flying through the low-lying storm clouds.
Just before they disappeared completely from view, one of them peaked directly through the clouds and it was then I could see the disc shape. I did not notice any lights; I did not notice any type of rotation of the objects, only that they were flying in a circular pattern.
Their movement was fast, about the speed of a helicopter circling an area. It definitely was not something natural. Right after they disappeared from view the wind picked up and the rain started to fall.
I tried to look further, but could not see anything anymore. It was a very shocking experience. It only lasted 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Springfield - 09-05-12
It looked like a helicopter but made no sound, flying very low with very bright lights that made a hazy, electronic interference.
At 5:30, I was laying in my bed getting ready to set the alarm on my phone and go to sleep. The bedroom is in the front corner of my house and faces West. There are windows at the head (west) and my side (south) of the bed.
As I pulled up the alarm app on my phone it froze and shut off. I looked out of the window next to me and saw bright lights and an object that at first appeared to be a helicopter. It caught my attention traveling from the East no more than 100 ft. above my neighbor's house. It appeared to be moving very slowly and had too many lights to be the type of helicopter that my town utilizes.
I promptly jumped out of bed and ran out my front door to get a better look. The first thing that made me uncomfortable was the dead silence. The aircraft made no sounds and continued traveling West. It moved in a strange way around the trees and then appeared to sink lower suddenly over the highway 5 blocks down.
I waited to see if it would climb higher, but it just vanished, practically before my eyes.
Hermann - 08-23-12
I encountered a cigar-shaped UFO near Hermann with a visit the next night. I was witness to a UFO in the morning of August 23, 2012. It was outside my window (several hundred yards away and was cigar-shaped), and I had the feeling I was being watched. It hovered for about five minutes, and then disappeared.
The next evening (about the same time) I was also witness to two "aliens." They appeared in my living room, where I had been sleeping on the sofa. There were two of them and they had elongated heads and large eyes. They were shorter than most humans and had skin that was brown and wrinkled looking.
I felt afraid but one of them said, "Do not be afraid. We are here to help you." Just after that they began fading away and disappeared. The next day several electrical appliances turned themselves off. I could not find a reasonable explanation for this and attributed it to the visit.
