At 11:31pm today, I decided to look out my window for a little while before I fell asleep when I saw it. A flashing strip of light that seemed very, very far away. I assumed it was a helicopter, but watching it move in-between my blinds it began to jolt quickly backwards and forwards, at first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, but it was such an odd movement I decided to get up and take a closer look. As I headed towards my window, I noticed it had moved further down the sky towards the horizon, the movements of this thing were so bizarre, I have never seen anything like it in my life. It would dart into all corners of the sky, it was so hard to se because of how fast it was moving, like it was teleporting, it made it almost impossible for the eyes to focus on it. I was bewildered, I even went and woke up my mother. ‘I think I can see a UFO’ I told her, I felt crazy even saying it out loud. She just laughed, but she knew I was serious, so she got up to come and take a look. I was trying to show her where it was, but it was even harder for even me to see now, let alone her, she just kept saying that she couldn’t see anything. I opened my window to see if I could get a better look because I could barely see where it was anymore, my mother said that she could hear a helicopter, but I heard nothing, it was oddly silent I thought, and then, just like that it was gone, it had vanished. Now I don’t know whether my eyes were playing tricks on me this night, but it was very odd, very odd indeed, and the thought of the object in the sky doesn’t sit right with me and has left me with a very strange feeling, and I think it will take a while for me to shake this off.
