I Saw A UFO! Should I Report It Or Avoid The Ridicule?

I saw a ufo but what do I do now?

That’s a question many people will have asked themselves over the years.

In fact, it wasn’t too long ago that if you saw a ufo, you generally kept it to yourself for fear of ridicule.

Today, things have changed. Seeing a ufo has become a little bit “meh”.

It seems we’ve moved on somewhat and the focus seems to be more on close encounter reports.

Not to say that there still isn’t a place for a good old-fashioned ufo sighting.

Confession…I Saw A UFO But Didn’t Report It

I Saw A Flying Saucer!

I remember clearly the first time I saw a ufo.

It was 2004 and I was living in Sydney, Australia at the time.  At 11.30pm on a cool Friday evening in May, I saw this thing as plain as the pimple on the end of my nose. I had been eating chocolate at the time.

I was sitting on my balcony looking out towards the beach and when this craft appeared, it was as if I could almost reach out and touch it.

It was triangle shaped and I estimated it to be about thirty feet from tip to tip. You do the math.

It was a surreal feeling as I observed it glide above the sand. It was no more than fifty feet above the ground and it didn’t make a sound.

Actually, when I say it didn’t make a sound it was as if there was a silent hum and everything seemed to be in slow motion. I watched it for two minutes before it disappeared.

I Wanted To Report A UFO I Saw But I Was Hesitant To Do It

The next day I went into work eager to tell people about it. I was due to commence an on-air shift but something kept telling me don’t do it.

I went into the control room to check what my schedule was. While there, I wanted to ask if anyone had seen something strange last night.

Again, that little voice kept saying don’t do it. But I was going to say something anyway.

Before I could open my mouth, someone blurted out “did you hear about all the ufo sightings last night”.


To tell you the truth, I was actually afraid deep down to say anything because of ridicule. A lot has changed since then, obviously.

That was my first ufo sighting and I’ll be honest with you, while it was real, there was still a little doubt planted in my mind.

I saw a ufo but I feared speaking up about it, especially to friends and family.

How many of you have felt the same way?

How Would An Investigator Have Handled This UFO I Saw?

Chuck Zukokski is one of the world’s elite UFO field investigators. When he’s on an assignment, he doesn’t leave any stone unturned.

Zukowski showcased his skills during his television series Alien Highway. He’s very analytical and methodical.

I wonder how he would have conducted his investigation into my first ufo sighting?

I interviewed Zukowski during the Aliens Revealed Live online summit in February and we discussed what it takes to become a top notch field investigator.

He mentioned a couple of things many people might be a little surprised at. He talked about being non-biased and skeptical.

Oh absolutely. One of the things that I’ve always tried to do before every case is going into it non- biased. You don’t want to be biased”.

“So, lights in the sky are really hard to do now because we have just so many satellites up there and so many other things that we don’t know about from other countries”.

“So it’s really hard to do lights in the sky without the lights in the sky being very unique”.

I imagine it’s one thing to say “I saw a ufo” and believe what you saw to be real.

However, even though you’re sure about what you saw, investigators like Zukowski will either confirm or prove otherwise.

That certainly would have contributed to many people keeping ufo sightings to themselves.

Today however, society has shifted. People seem to be chasing notoriety and reporting a ufo you saw hovering in the skies, doesn’t seem to be a big deal anymore.

Are You UFO Investigator Material?

About Dean Caporella

A journalist, reporter, anchor and sports commentator for over 30 years I was mesmerized by the UFO topic when I was just 5 years old after watching the 1956 classic “Earth vs. The Flying Saucers”. Did I even understand it at that age? Oh sure. It scared the crap out of me but I was hooked even back then! Do I believe in life elsewhere in the universe? I think it was said best in the movie Contact…”The universe is a pretty big place. If it's just us, seems like an awful waste of space”….I think we’d have to be pretty arrogant to think we’re it”.
