Boring, Oregon - 07-07-89
My sister and I are from Boring, Oregon. That is where we lived at the time we saw this UFO! We were young kids myself about 9 or 10, my sister 2 years older than I.
We always enjoyed sleeping outside in the summer, so the night of the sighting was like any other night. We got our beds ready on the front patio of the house which was a good sized 2-story home with big sliding glass doors on the front of the house which is were the patio is and where we chose to sleep that night.
The view from sleeping on the patio was an unobstructed view of the night sky. There were trees on the outskirts of my vision, but from a laying position I could see about all of the night sky.
I fell asleep with no problems that I can remember, and then I remember waking up to take the covers off my face, and when I did I was lying on my back and I opened my eyes to see the whole previously unobstructed night sky being taken up by this UFO!
The UFO was right over the top of us.
If felt like we were directly under the middle of it. Its height was very low and it seemed to be just over the topped off tree.
It was so close I could have thrown a rock and hit it. With it being so close, I remember I could see the different textures and see shadows casting off those textures on to the craft. I can't recall direct lights in my eyes, but the thing seemed to be illuminated by a soft dark, light glow.
I remember feeling like I was looking at someone that was looking at me, but I did not see anyone. It was very steady and not moving. It just seemed to be hanging there. I did not even here any noises and it was so big and close.
So in all it was about a minute of observing the UFO. I then woke up my sister by shaking her. When she woke we both got another look at it and then threw the covers over our heads.
I was very curious so I looked again and as I uncovered my head I just caught the thing with hardly any movement.
The craft was very fast and moved effortlessly. It went from right over my heads to a little bigger than a big star way up into the sky, and then disappeared.
The only noise it made when it moved was a swish; like the noise of the wind and air moving. I was in shock when we saw it and I don't really remember anything right after the sighting like falling back asleep or what we did.
I find that really weird, also because knowing me as a child my first reaction would be run screaming for my mom and I don't even remember if I went back to sleep, went inside or anything till the next morning when we both told our parents.
They were amazed by the story but kind of in disbelief. They had us separately draw what we saw. I have thought about that every day since it happened and am very interested In learning more.
