More Chiddix Science Fiction
By Josh, 14
One of the major topics discussed all around the world is the question
of if there are UFOs or is it a figment of our imagination?
I have a story that sums up the whole theory. My sighting was about
2 years ago off the coast of California.
I was alone about 1 mile of the shoreline fishing on vacation. My sighting
of this airborne object was about 2,000 feet above sea level and was
traveling about 3,000 miles an hour.
I was lucky enough to see the object twice overhead, I assumed that
the flying object was doing a practice flight till I realized it wasn't
your normal aircraft.
It was about five o’clock the morning of July 5 it was a clear day with
very good visibility. I was facing north when the object came out of
the west and flashed by me faster than I could get a hold on what the
object was. I looked back to where the object disappeared in the east
and about 5 minutes went by when the object came back into visibility
at a slower speed that I had time to clock it at and get a good look.
The object that flew by was a circular object and had a violet luminous
light from the edge of the craft all away around it. I clocked it with
my stop watch the second time and I realized that it wasnt your ordinary
aircraft it was flying faster than any object available to the U.S.
or any other country.
I quickly went to the cockpit of my boat and chased the craft so I could
get one last look at it. My vision was impaired by the glare of the
sun when I chased to the west. I had him in view for about 30 seconds
since it was such a nice day out, any other day I would only been able
to see it for about 5 seconds. People say it was impossible to see an
object that long going at such a speed, my eyes don’t lie I saw the
craft for roughly 30 seconds part of the reason was the luminous light
it gave off.
The markers that helped me clock the speed of the craft was a buoy roughly
a ˝ mile away from me this I knew because once the object was gone I
was able to use my distance gauge on my boat and traveled directly to
the buoy. I did the math and couldn’t believe it, I did the math over
and over again and it all came out perfect.
When I came to shore I checked my math with a calculator and with my
wife whose math is at a high college level. She at first didnt believe
me that this was an object I clocked with my eyes but after I told her
the story with complete detail it made more sense to her but she still
had her doubts. I will admit I even had my doubts from time to time
about this story and if my eyes were playing tricks on me.
When I went to the police and naval personnel they thought I was crazy
so I took them out to the sight relived the story for them, they had
more faith in me after I completed my story but then is when all doubts
changed into a true story with all the facts to back it up.
It was about 9 at night. We were headed back in. We were not far from
the site when the same light from the object I had seen reappeared from
the sky, its bright violet luminous light traveling at a much lower
speed this time. We had plenty of time to make out the object. It was
about 300 feet away from our boat and about 600 feet in the air. We
figured it was traveling around 300 mph when it took off with a blast
after about 20 seconds and seemed to gain phenomenal speed.
We didn't speak the whole way back to the mainland, but we all knew
what every other person was thinking, with this many people sighting
the same craft twice it's a phenomenal discovery and a breakthrough
for science. We got back to the dock and there were black SUVs everywhere.
They were blocking our entrance. They had 4 boats surrounding us. W
coasted up to another boat when they took out their microphones and
told us we were under arrest.
I knew that this was a goverment cover-up. I dove into the water because
they could not get a good look at how many of us there were. The other
two just looked at me with bewilderment and put their hands in the air.
I have not heard from them ever since, there was no breakthrough discovery,
there was no story told to the United States public. I am in hiding
right now from the U.S. trying to savor my life before they take it
away from me because of my unlucky sighting.
To this day there has been no headline "UFOs found" or any story on
my sighting. I have been thinking for the past 2 years about all the
cover -ups there must have been and how I am the lucky one to live through
this moment and actually be here to tell it. But I am too afraid and
cowardly to confess myself to the public there will be no story, it
will die with me and be covered up just as my body will when it is covered
up. What a shame to live my life in fear to tell the story that could
change lives for ever.
