UFO's in rural areas - why?
« Thread started on: Jun 20th, 2008, 11:10am »
I would like to know if anyone has any information/book suggestions/theories as to why UFO's are seen over rural areas. There are plenty of possibilities as to why they might be seen over urban areas or rural areas that might have a military base or something, but why would they spend time where there are few people, and not a whole lot of interesting stuff on the ground?
I saw an "unidentified flying object" over a lake in northern Wisconsin in the mid-70's. It was between 11 p.m. and midnight... it was miles from the smallest town. We were out on the pier, and there was this bright light in the distance. It came closer, and sounded like a loud engine of sorts. I called my dad over to look. When he came out on the pier, the light stopped. We thought that because of the fact that it stopped, it was a helicopter. But - the nearest place a helicopter could come from was also miles away. This object stayed in one place for several minutes, and then took off, disappearing almost immediately. I have no idea what it was, but it was definitely not anything one could easily identify. We still wonder, though, what it would be doing out there.
I saw a second ufo just a few years ago outside of Vegas. I emailed the National UFO Center (?). They suspect I saw a star. But the darn thing had a distinct round shape, very visable flashing lights, and disappeared as quickly as it appeared. I'm convinced that UFO's exist. I'm just not so sure about their behavior.
