Yup. I've seen these. Reading about other abductions, these are probably the safest things to see. I've seen two and both times I was talking with a
friend about UFOs. Different friends - also believers. And BOTH times there was a jokey element.
1. About 8pm 2 years ago.
I was staying the night at Mum's. We'd actually been watching UFO vids at Mum's (Melville, Western Australia) and drinking beer. We'd had - I dunno -
3 beers - as my friend had to drive home. So I walked my friend out to his car with the very vague notion that "they" were listening in to our
conversation. We were at his car and I saw what was so obviously a plane banking towards us. As a joke I said, "Hey look, here comes a UFO disguised
as a plane. We're not fooled, buddy."
But my friend grabbed me by the collar and spun me 180 degrees.
We both watched in silence as a floating orange dot started cruising silently towards us (from an Easterly direction). Our initial thought was
"Chinese Lantern," but it wasn't flickering like a lantern, although was moving really steadily. We kept talking - saying jokey stuff like
"it's reading our intentions" when it suddenly stopped. Like it was
listening. We couldn't believe it. About 50-100ft above a tall tree was our
guess. It stayed there stock-still for about 1 minute and suddenly flickered out. We both thought "Wow" and continued discussing it. "That was most
probably a Chinese Lantern" we were saying. But it didn't look like one. It was more star-like. But not too bright, either. Because it was so
borderline, we had a bob either way. We riffed on about UFOs for about 10 straight minutes.
And then the bloody thing lit up again - exactly where it had "faded out" above the tall tree and continued cruising along in a straight line - as if
it was having a little smart-ass joke.
2. Same time, 8pm about 1yr ago.
On a boat with a (different) friend, Rod. Again. About 2 beers down.
Again I saw a plane and joked "here it is - pretending to be a plane". I actually thought it was a plane. This time coming from the north-west -
flying straight towards us - in from the ocean, but not on the usual plane route. Just a steady orange light. Silent. Just one, unwaverinjg light
about 100-200ft in the air maybe. "Keep your eyes on that" I told Rod (also a believer and past witness of more traditional UFO). We stood up on the
boat. It came right over at about 5-10mph, then turned about 45 degrees heading off in a Northerly direction towards the city of Perth. Same slow
speed. But after about 1 minute of us talking to it "Come on, come over here, don't be shy" - it just faded out.
I actually said "That's like the one I saw with Rob about a year ago. It's going to disappear now that we've busted it." That's when it went
No wind either night. Very calm. Clear clear skies. NOT a Chinese lantern. We've actually seen heaps of lanterns and even sent our own lanterns up to
see what they look like. Lanterns flicker and you can often see the container /plastic bag they are in.
I'm talking about 2 x star-like, very steady lights. Orange. Fading out once they'd been busted.
I don't really think there's a point in using a camera. It would have been yet-another dot in the sky pic. Who needs that?
