MY UFO EXPERIENCE | White Ball of Light Shoots Across Road in Front of My Daughter's Car

     This is an account of an event that happened to my 20-year-old daughter at approximately 9:10 PM on Friday, October 7, 2011 in Rockford, Illinois. We both want to remain anonymous.

The time that my daughter gets out of work varies from day to day. She left work at 9:00 PM on Friday, October 7, 2011 and came straight home, arriving around 9:15 PM. This was well within the normal allotted time for her to arrive home taking into account stoplights and traffic conditions.

I happened to be in the kitchen when she walked into the house and sensed that something wasn’t quite right because of the “deer in the headlight” stare in her eyes. The first words out of her mouth were that she “Had just seen the scariest ‘expletive’ she has ever seen.” Note the choice of using “scariest” and not “weirdest” in the preceding sentence. I asked her to elaborate and she said, “As she was on Charles Street (6400-6500 block) a white ball of light the size of a bowling ball crossed the road directly in front of her car.” The duration lasted 1-2 seconds as it moved from south to north.

Best guess was that the BOL was 20-25 feet in front of her car. She has a small car and was able to see the BOL through the windshield without having to get close to the windshield and look up. She has recently discovered bowling and in referencing the size of the BOL a bowling ball was mentioned as a comparison and not a basketball or volleyball or any other similarly sized object. My wife and I asked her to take us to the area and we did so at approximately 9:30 PM. Of course there was nothing to be seen.

Some items worth mentioning include: Since the unusual occurrence took place she continues to travel the aforementioned stretch of Charles Street both day and night without giving it a second thought. Her eyesight is 20/20 (or better) without any correction. The interior of her car or the immediate vicinity wasn’t illuminated in any way. The car radio was on and there wasn’t any abnormal sounds or static coming from the speakers or any other apparent malfunction of the radio. There weren’t any cars in front or behind her at the time. The posted speed limit on that stretch of road is 35 mph. The sky was 100% clear. The temperature was in the low 60s. The wind was CALM. The BOL was seen between two cemeteries…one approximately 2 blocks west and the other approximately 3 blocks east of her sighting location.

This short duration event took her off guard and she said that because she wasn’t expecting to see what she witnessed that she didn’t bother to look left or right before or after the BOL appeared in her sight.

There were mass sightings of orange orbs over Rockford on 13 various dates from December 31, 1999 to March 18, 2001.
