    Yes On a dark clear night while camping in an open field, saw things moving as far as the eye could see up in the milky way. I believe to this day something is out there somewhere.
    That is a bucket list item for me. When I was stationed in Alaska I was way out on some mountain ridges for a radio relay station. There was zero light pollution and the amount of stars and galaxies you could see on a new moon night was astounding. Not to mention the nights of Northern Lights......

    I want to see this again. I was to young and the memories are to clouded now....

    Oh, I was also “tapped” on the back of the thigh in a birthing compartment while on an overnight Cub Scout camping trip aboard the USS Lexington (CV-16).

    Yeah...well...it was the Navy, sooo

    A friend of ours takes care of our cat and checks on the house when we are gone. A couple years ago she was leaving the house and heard piano music so assumed she left the TV on, went back into the living room and TV was off. She said she backed out and got out of there quick.

    About ten or twelve years ago wife and I were in Rosamond Calif. on Rosamond blvd. It was evening and the sun had just set, noticed something in the sky. Was disc shaped large silver and going straight up. We pulled over and got out with binoculars to watch and the craft continued going up. As we were watching I noticed another one just like it coming from the west and as it meet up with the other one it came over the top of the first one and went up just like the other one. We watched until they were out of sight. Didn't have a camera so have no proof just my word.
    Now remember Edwards AFB is just on the other side of Rosamond so was it something they have, maybe.

    My brother and I camped out at Cherry Hill State Park in Pennsylvania years ago. Found out while there that there was a amatuer astronomy meeting there that night. This park is known to be the darkest spot east of the Mississippi........

    Still nothing compared to Fort Greely Alaska

    When I was about 4 yo, my dad bought our first TV, black & white, of course, at Monkey Ward's. He hauled it home in the trunk of our 1951 Ford. He hooked it up to the rabbit ears, and switched it on. After about a minute, a horrible, ugly clown face appeared in the 14" screen, rotating and zooming in till it filled the entire screen. His name was Bozo, and he appeared in my dreams for months afterwards. I often sensed his presence in my bedroom, at night, either under the bed, or in the closet.

    Finally, my dad hid in the room one night, while I was asleep, and when Bozo tried to get me, Daddy jumped out and beat him with a baseball bat. My dad related this to me, the next morning, and told me to sleep with the baseball bat, until I was sure Bozo wasn't coming back. I was very relieved, and Bozo never dared to come back into my bedroom, although he would occasionally get inside the TV. I was slightly worried that the incident might scare off Santa Claus, but, thankfully, it didn't, and he still comes for the milk and cookies I leave for him, on Christmas Eve, while I sleep.

    Lexington was not a good place to spend the night----------My Pilot and I had to let another crew take our EA-6A after we completed our carrier quals, and we were stuck on board over night.
    The bunk room they put us in leaked when they slowed the ship after flight ops were secured for the day.

    Yeah, I think that's what happened that time I only got a sack of hickory nuts and a claw hammer, for Christmas. Bozo was really evil.

    I'm not sure there hasn’t been a thread about this here... but whenever this subject comes up in a discussion forum, the stories are invariably quite interesting.

    So, have you ever seen anything that you believe was supernatural, spiritual or even alien? 

    Something that was definitely out of the ordinary?

I don't do drugs or drink .... had to be a dream .... right ?

    I was fishing in an old lake one time.  I got hung up on the bottom.  After tugging and pulling and anything else I could think of, I finally dislodged whatever it was I was hung on.  I slowly reeled it in to discover it was an old wall mounted, hand crank telephone.

    No sooner did I have it in the boat than it started ringing.  I answered, and had a nice conversation with someone who had been dead for over a hundred years.

    Does that count?

    I could be making this up.

    Yes, I've seen a few things in the night sky. A couple events were witnessed by people with me. 
    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.
