This was a few years ago but every now and then it gets into my head and I can't stop thinking about it. Earlier this year I finally reported it to a
well known international UFO network, and in less than 24 hours received a call confirming interest. The guy said that they compare sightings around
the world looking for similarities and that he was very confident that would be the case here. He also advised me not to talk about it - I should have
asked why, but I didn't. I tend not to ask questions by nature.
Alright: in September 2008, at around 2am on Sunday morning, I received a call from a couple of friends who were walking through my suburb on their
way home and were wondering if I wanted to hang out for a bit in a park a short distance from my house. They knew I was a night owl, hence why they
figured correctly that I'd still be up. We met up in the park and were sitting at a picnic table for about 20 minutes when I started to notice a very
tall, very thin, "person" walking around the perimetre of the park. The route included going around a whole bunch of houses, and according to Google
Maps, the shortest route is approximately 1.6 kilometres (just under one mile for you yanks). The motion of this.... fellow... was that of a walking
pace rather than a running pace. And he was covering the distance in under a minute, repeatedly circling around the park. After his third appearance,
I mentioned it to my two friends, who said that they too had noticed it and were about to say something until I got in first.
So, we did what anyone would do. We hid in the shadows about 8 metres away from the footpath and waited until this tall skinny chap was about 20
metres away to our right, at which point we all sprinted towards the footpath, hoping to intercept this strange night walker as he approached. But by
the time we hit the footpath, he was about 20 metres past us to our left. Still walking, not running. Of course, we didn't hesitate to chase after
him, running as fast as we could - three healthy 18 year olds in hot pursuit. But no matter how fast we tried to run, we just couldn't catch up. At
one point this figure paused beneath a streetlight and turned to look at us briefly before resuming his time-distorting walk. I can't remember any
detail of his face, only that he was easily 7ft tall, extremely thin, dressed in tight black clothing, had a large head with no hair and very pale,
almost white skin. He seemed totally unconcerned that three people were sprinting towards him, did not answer to our calls of "oi mate stop we wanna
talk to you" etc. Just paused for a second, and kept walking.
He rounded a corner, and we followed seconds later, only to find him gone. We stopped running after rounding the corner and losing sight of him, and
for some reason all three of us decided that it would not be a good idea to keep trying to follow him. We went back to the park and lingered there for
a while, but he didn't come back. Incidentally, we were all sober, and not on any drugs. All three of us experienced the same thing; for years after
we'd refer to it as "the alien incident". Didn't see any UFO or strange vehicle of any kind, then again we were a bit too preoccupied to look up,
so if there was a flying saucer or whatever parked nearby we wouldn't have seen it. There was no missing time, just this tall thin pale fella walking
(definitely walking motion, not running) at an impossible speed, and none of us could recall details of his face even though he looked right at us.
Just curious as to what other people might think of this, I only call him an "alien" for lack of a better word, I'd be lying if I said I knew
exactly what the hell we all saw that night. It didn't seem like he was particularly concerned with us, which makes it weirder because if I were
walking down the street in the early hours of the morning and found three people chasing after me calling out for me to stop, I'd probably not just
casually continue walking and breaking the laws of physics whilst I'm at it.
Haven't seen anything like that since, which I was informed to be a good thing. Been very hesitant about telling this because I don't want to be
identified by my story, but I've decided to run that risk anyway.
Saw very tall, very thin, very pale "person" walking a distance of around 1.6km in under a minute, tried to intercept him but couldn't catch up
despite how fast we ran, dude disappeared into the ether after turning a corner.
