I yelled to Bruce, "Holy s--t." He immediately looked over from what he was doing. Above the clouds, where the white disc had been, was a now giant red ball. It was big and bright and just sat there above the clouds. It wasn't intense enough to illuminate us with a red glow but it was still plenty bright. We sat there in stunned silence. We obviously didn't want to hit it but quickly saw that it was flying parallel to our course. We weren't on a collision course and we also weren't gaining on it. Time became a blur as we continued our descent, this giant, red ball holding its course.
All in all, the pilot described becoming engulfed by thin wispy clouds - despite the clear, daytime sky surrounding the plane - and then saw a disc-shaped object watching him and his copilot. It then apparently turned into a big glowing ball of light, which flew along parallel to them until it - again, apparently - burst into hundreds of lights everywhere. After a while, all traces of the UFO and the clouds just disappeared. He reported the UFO to the National UFO Reporting Center, but explained how natural it was to be hesitant to do such a thing - that UFOs were a known, but "swept under the rug" kind of deal in his line of work, and that ... "virtually all pilots believe in UFOs." That's probably a stretch; I'm sure I can find plenty of pilots who don't believe in UFOs, but that's a pretty interesting thing to say right now.
During a time when NASA employees are publicly stating that they expect to find ET life in 10 to 20 years, in between guest appearances on Coast to Coast AM, of course. And advisers to the president are complaining about #Disclosure.
Are you ready?
