The Glowing Ball in The Sky

31 January 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I recall as a boy going to school and seeing a glowing ball pass through the sky above me. I asked my friends if they saw it too and no one had. I remember being worried about what it was and why no one else had seen it….. then I read this experience…

I’ve always had a fascination with the unknown, whether it be Paranormal, extraterrestrial or other. Although I was curious, I was also heavily skeptical even when growing up. My father was the opposite as he would always make jokes about the ghost hunter shows we watched together.

When I was 10, I played little league football and my father would always take me to my games. One night we were driving back from one of my games. My mother had come to my game as well but she drove her own car home because she came after work. My brother had ridden with her. It was a clear night, not a cloud in the sky, and the moon was full so the road was illuminated well. We were taking a backroad shortcut home and drove through a heavily wooded area which blocked the moon’s light. The trees were so thick, without our headlights it would have been near pitch black. I was flipping through the radio stations and stopped just in time, if I had looked up a second later I’d have missed it. I looked up ahead plat the road when a glowing ball of light came flying out of the woods from the right side of the road. It flew out right front of our car and disappeared into the trees to the left side of the road. It took no more than a couple of seconds to cross us and vanish. It was so fast, my father didn’t even slow down. I was scared stiff. My father didn’t slow down and didn’t say a word, so I’d wondered if he’d even seen it. We sat quietly for the next 10 minutes of the drive when finally my father looked at me and said, “did you see that too?” I was relieved that I wasn’t seeing things but shocked because of how skeptical he is of things.

The weirdest part is when we got home my mother had told us that she was driving home and the silhouette of a man ran out into the road and waved his arms frantically. She slammed on her brakes so hard her head got jerked down near her lap and my brother almost fell into the floorboard of the car. When my mother looked up after stopping, there was no one there. We hadn’t told her what we saw before she told us. I still to this day do not know what I saw.
