Alien Mothership Sighted in Sierra!
When this strange cloud showed up before sunrise, I knew some weather was on the way. Twelve hours later I was sitting out a wind storm in the Royce Lakes Basin, which had gusts of 60mph, so strong they bent the poles of my REI Chrysalis one man ultra lite tent. It shredded(and I mean shredded)my brother's and nephew's emergency tube tents. Good thing I brought plenty of duct tape. "L" Lake, John Muir Wilderness, Sierra Nevada, California, USA. August 2010.

Never thought about it before, but I wonder if this isn't why most UFO sightings are out West.

What's upwind from Roswell?

more UFO's because they like warm days, cool nights, beef jerky and open country.

Thanks. I was in the right place at the right time with a cup of coffee in one hand and a camera in the other.

"Woke up this morning with light in my eyes,
And then realized it was still dark outside.
It was a light coming down from the sky,
I don't know who or why..

Must be those strangers that come every night,
Those saucer-shaped lights put people uptight.
Leave blue-green footprints that glow in the dark;
I hope they get home all right."

"Woke up this morning, I was feeling quite weird
Had flies in my beard, my toothpaste was smeared
Over my window, they'd written my name
Said, so long, we'll see you again."

Used to see these kinds of clouds in Wyoming all the time..... but never lit up so pretty with the sunset.

Hang on to your hat!

Nice shot!

What? Still no response?

Gotta envy the dude. He's probably got them
"little green men" down on a first-name basis.

Wonder if he's checking out the babes..
