If you've ever been the one in your friend group to experience a UFO or alien sighting, or you experienced something that could only be described as "X-files material," then you likely know what it feels like to have people stare at you like you've lost your mind.
Regardless of who you are or where you live, there are some experiences that inexplicably stretch your sense of wonder, and simultaneously make everyone around you shrug in confusion.
In a popular Reddit thread, people who have stories of alien or UFO spottings shared what went down, and how they explain it all to themselves.
I was about 13, and my dad was in the backyard and calls out to me "Hey, do you want to see a UFO?"
I go outside, and he points up to the sky. I see a little shining dot that is a silvery metallic color. It seems like it's far away, but there's really nothing nearby to compare it to.
