Bessemer, Alabama - 06-02-14
I was in the city of Bessemer visiting with some relatives. As my family and I loaded everything in the car, which was facing directly east, I observed a bright star-like object appear about 100-200 ft. above the tree line.
I commented to my child, "There's a UFO"; which has become our accustomed slang way of referring to these almost daily seen objects. He excitedly replied, "Where is it daddy?" and when I pointed at the object it began to visibly become lighter.
The object became as bright as a cars headlights if they were set to bright. Initially the object hovered just above the trees, then it began a series of motions including descending, ascending, and multiple directional changes.
We observed the object several minutes before it finally went out of view over the tree line. For an instant I thought about attempting to follow the object, but I did not want to place my family in jeopardy.
After the object disappeared I called another family member that I knew should be located somewhere along the flight path I observed the object take. He did not see this first object; however, as I dialogued with him another star-like object appeared at a much higher altitude directly in my line of sight as I faced east.
This second object was flying along a straight flight path from the south headed north. This second object was flashing at an interval of about every 3 seconds following the same direction that the first object had taken. I asked my family member if he was able to observe this second object from his location and he answered in the affirmative.
Based upon what has been transpiring lately I continue to believe that these objects are either targeting myself or are seeking to be recognized in some way. A similar object was seen several hours later; for this I will be submitting a separate report.
