When this sighting took place is not very specific in my memory, I feel it was mid October or early November of 1981 or 1982. At that time in my life, I owned and operated a taxi cab in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At around 3:00 AM a gentleman engaged me to transport him to the Sheraton Hotel in Valley Forge,about a 25 mile trip, we agreed on the price, then drove him there. After dropping him off I looked at my watch to note thefare and time in my trip log, it was around 3:25 AM. My day driver started at 5:00 AM, he lived on the other side of the city, which gave me some time before I had to pick him up. I decided to stop and buy a take out coffee, then drive to his house. The quickest way to the city is on route 76 East, (Schuylkill Expressway). somewhere between Conshohocken and the Belmont exits I noticed a very bright light in the northeastern sky that seemed to be floating in one spot. I thought whyis a traffic helicopter out this early in the morning, maybe a bad accident in front of me? I called on the CB radio and asked if a traffic jam was down the road, a truck driver answered me and said he didn't hear of any, I then found out he was behind me about 1/4 mile. As I got closer to the light I slowed down to get a better look at it, (about 45 MPH) now I could see smaller lights around the bottom of this craft, flashing green, blue, red. I asked the truck driver if he saw the bright light out his left hand window. Then he told me he was looking at a very bright disk with little lights flashing on the bottom. As I neared the area of the light I pulled over on the shoulder of the highway, just below and south of it.I was just above the Speing Garden Street exit, my position was south and across from the Philadelphia Art Musuam almost under a stone railroad btidge. Just then a truck passed me, and asked me on the CB if I was ok. I told him yes and asked if he would report what we were seeing. "NO WAY!" was his answer. When I rolled down my window to hear the whir of the rotor blades, it then hit me that there wasn't any noise coming from this object. For some reason I picked up the spot light I use to locate house numbers, flashing it at the UFO, the craft flashed back from a smaller light in the very bottom center. It was mimicking me, ok lets try something here, flashing in Morse Code the word "HI" it flashed back "HI". It must be a program to repeat back to the sender. So then I flashed "My name is Chalie". What I expected to receive and didn't is why I'll remember this for the rest of my life. They transmitted back to me "My name is Zon". Now I can find out where they are from, looking back at the object it was GONE! I scanned the sky and never saw it again. Stunned and shaking I used the mobile phone to report what just happened. Three days later two men from the government, (their words) interviewed me and told me someone would be calling me to check on my sighting. To this day no one has ever called or asked about it.
