a reply to: STEEM
It was many years ago. It was in a rural area- we lived a bit outside the city off a highway which passed through fields for many miles. There was
always a lot of cars though, as it was a highway that went passed through some major cities in the south. I was going home, and suddenly all the cars
stopped ahead, as I slowed down and approached them, my car stalled.
I couldn't start it again.
Then I saw in front of me, and above the cars, a silver-metallic like disk. It seemed to be sitting in the air completely still.
I studied it (for I could see it perfectly- it was a sunny, clear day, and it wasn't that far away). I was sure it was some sort of military aircraft,
and assumed the disk impression had to be an illusion, caused by seeing it from behind, and that it was probably moving directly away, just giving the
impression of being stationary.
But after several seconds, without seeing it get smaller (as it would if moving away) and seeing that it really seemed to have a perfect saucer shape,
with no other details, I started to feel confused.
Then it made some manouvers that really threw me for a loop- it moved upwards, then downwards, in a perfectly precise mannner, then tilted sideways
one side, then the other. I don't know how to explain the strange effect of perfect precision in these movements!
Then, it suddenly shot off, in a southwest direction, but at a speed that was imossible! The kind of speed that if I saw it in a movie, for example, I
would scoff and say that was really badly done- it looked unatural. If there was anyone inside it, they would be turned to mush!
I was leaning over my stearing wheel, with my mouth hanging open. I wasn't thinking anything, my mind was blank, like I couldn't process what I had
seen. Then I heard the engines of the cars around me start up, and that sort of brought my mind back and I tried to start mine again- it worked. So we
all started to pull out and begin moving again.
I drove the rest of the way in total silence, my mind blank, like a zombie.
It wasn't until I got home, got the groceries I had into the house, that I started to sort of come back to myself, and I said outloud to my husband,
"You know..... I think I saw a UFO..?"" It was like all the explanations I could fathom just came up short and failed to explain the event.
I was not into UFO lore, had no knowledge or interest in such things, was a but ashamed of myself (being used to laughing at such ideas) But I just
couldn't make sense of it.
Later in retrospect, I wondered why I didn't try to communicate with the other people on the road, to ask them if they saw the same thing.... and I
wondered about the state I was in mentally, which became really "dead" after the thing was gone.
I experienced that same state months later, when my family and I were driving late at night (again on that rural highway).
I was sleeping in the passenger seat, when my husband woke me up, grabbing my knee and practically yelling in a panic, "There's a big light up
I woke up and saw a blinding light just a few meters in front of us, and only a few meters off the ground. It was so bright, it was hard to look
directly at it. As we got closer, he started flipping out more and more, and I was trying to calm him, saying it must be a helicopter, with their
spotlight on us. I was sure that was what it had to be.
Then ...we were driving along in silence in the darkness, facing forward, our backs against the seat, minds blank.
I cannot begin to accurately explain how weird that was! One second there was so much going on- we were both yelling, blinded by this light, sitting
forward, panicking.... then the next second, all was quiet, calm, nothingness.
I felt like my started to come back and I said, "what happened to the helicopter?" turning around to see if we passed it.
There was nothing. My husband continued to stare forward, completely blank, and just answered me, "I don't know. I don't what happened."
Then we just both turned and stared forward and said nothing more about it that night. That state of mind, the "blank slate" was the same as I had
experienced hen I had the saucer thing sighting.
Later, when I brought up the event, and tried to see if he remembered us passing the light or it going out or something, he would just get very upset,
say it was "nothing normal" and run out of the room, refusing to talk about it. He seemed upset, so I avoided the subject when I could.
