Maybe one day I'll have the time and energy to put together a Wyoming ride and meet. It's really thanks to JEP we moved here, following one he did.

This was my UFO experience....

It was late in 1990, and my dad, his third wife, and me were coming back from putting on a power lifting meet in Phoenix. We made it to Norman, OK, dropped off the truck and trailer, and picked up the Nissan Sentra to go home to Enid, OK. We were just north of El Reno, OK, and I was asleep in the back. I was about 5-6 months pregnant, and exhausted. It was very late, after midnight. Suddenly my dad stopped the car in the middle of nowhere, and he and my step-mom jumped out, leaving the doors open. I scrambled out of the back, groggy and flustered, just as what looked like a football stadium flew overhead. It was huge, dark except random lights of various colors, and didn't go zooming over as much as it just sort of flew. It was at a steady altitude and not burning up. It was flying NW to SE. We made it to the next town and stopped at a convenience store, where everyone was talking about it, so it wasn't just us. The next day the news has a super brief blurb explaining it was a Russian booster rocket burning up on re-entry, and that was the last I ever heard of it.

I once dug around on the net and found a reference to it on a site that tracked unexplained sightings, but I'm not sure if the site is still up.

That's wild, a pregnant girl in a Sentra in Enid. Kidding, love ya, also survived the life.
If so many saw it you would think church or a local paper would have articles. Had we cell phone cameras back then things would be different, I would be in jail. Jerry Jones maybe but no booster re-entry.

We joke that's why my son is so smart but odd. The alien encounter...
