Since its founding in 1974, the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) has served as a non-judgmental hub where you can share—via hotline or written report—any potentially otherworldly experience you’ve had. The online archive contains thousands of these stories, which range from UFO and alien sightings to other unexplained phenomena. The friends watched it drift toward some nearby apartment buildings and appear to survey them, bobbing slightly up and down. As for whether that was the same sorry creature that the UFO had supposedly targeted, we’ll almost definitely never know. He looked up and saw the object for himself: two extraordinarily bright lights that seemed to merge into one even brighter light.
