Who\'s seen a UFO while flying?

Has anyone else seen a UFO while flying?

I was flying with an instrument student a few weeks ago at 1500' and a bright white light came at us and went directly underneath us at an extremely high speed. It looked kinda like a shooting star, but it went almost directly underneath us. I asked ATC if another airplane had just passed us and they said no one was near us. The student saw the exact same thing I did.

It must've been bright to see it through the foggles!


Just kidding. I've never seen anything that was too out of the ordinary.

EDIT: Actually if you were at 1500 and it went underneath you, it was probably still an airplane. ATC probably wouldn't have been able to see it being that low.

I did. I saw this funny white light, and then I don't remember anything else for a while. And then I remember flying along, wondering just why my butt hurt so bad.

Thanks for that image, Tony!


On my long xc from Fresno to Redding, I got a radar advisory for an 'unidentified stationary return' that was about 100 feet above me. Ended up being a HUGE bunch of mylar helium ballons like you'd get for someone's birthday. I'll bet there were 50 of them all tied together. All told, they probably had more surface area than my Tomahawk . . .

I'm convinced the book is never ever coming out.

In the best case scenario, it won't be published until early December 2030.

Sarcasm was meant by my last post.

I thought it both obviuos and apparent to sound redundant.

And from all the threads where you have mentioned "the book" sounds like it is gonna debut on the New York Times best sellers list.
