Hello ATS, here is another interesting case that I did not find in here, the source is in English and has a lot of information about it but I will
be making a summary of my own. The source will be at the end as always.
In the UFO phenomenon it appears that these objects reveal themselves timidly and the witnesses that found themselves facing one of these flying
objects, they can observe it from a distance that, while it does not generate absolute safety, the distance between these objects makes no imminent
danger. Sometimes the phenomenon interacts and disappears leaving strange traces in it's path like experiences of missing time or unusual mists in
But there are some cases that occur rarely in which the UFO appears to be seen against it's will and and in some of these occasions, it seems that
the UFO reacts violently to their astonished witnesses, undertaking actions that bring physical consequences for them.
One such case is the Everglades encounter in Florida that happened in 1965. In this humid, swampy region is where the woodsman James Flynn decided to
spend a few days in march of that year with the intention to hunt with his four dogs. During one of the nights his dogs ran on the trail of a deer and
James stepped into the vegetation following them.
- Everglades National Park.
While searching for his dogs late at night, James noticed an unusual object hovering over the top of the cypress trees that populated the area a
kilometer and half away from where he was (0.9 miles). The object was shaped like a cone and it moved away from James but after 2 or 3 minutes it went
back to it's path and positioned in the same place where it was seen by James and there it remained static for 5 minutes after which it disappeared
flying in the opposite direction at high speed.
The object reappeared again after a short time, this time, 400 meters from James (437 yards) and it was no longer flying over the top of the trees, it
appeared floating among the cypress trees near the ground. James observed the object through his binoculars he carried with him.
- The UFO positioned in different heights above the ground.
The weird object was 15 meters in diameter (49 feet) and near the top were what appeared to be windows arranged in four rows of 20 cm each side (7
inches) which emitted a glow of yellowish hue. The ship was covered with metal plates joined together by rivets and in it's base emitted a crimson
light beam that reached the ground. Also, it emitted constantly a noise that sounded like a generator.
Initially, when James watched the object at a distance, he thought that it was a helicopter but when he observed it from a shorter distance, he
thought that it was actually some secret military ship that seemed to have troubles, without hesitation he began to approach toward the object waving
his arms raised to catch it's attention with the intention to offer help.
At that time the object stopped issuing constant and monotonous sound that sounded like of an engine similar to an aircraft propulsion system, then
James fell off to the ground because of a shake caused by a gust of wind that was coming from the direction where the UFO was.
- It seems that the UFO did not want the witness to approach.
James returned to his feet and continued his march closer and closer to the mysterious UFO that made clear it's disagreement with the approach of the
witness. When Flynn was at a short distance from it's target, the UFO emitted a beam of light that reached James and then he fainted. According to
Flynn himself as told to a local newspaper:
"I felt a blow like a hammer blow between the eyes and that's all I know"
He awoke at a later time alone in the forest and blind. He remained lying where he had awakened a long time. Fortunately he discovered that blindness
was momentary and was gradually regaining some sight in his left eye when dawn was breaking. Of course, the UFO was gone.
Having recovered only a little vision in one eye, dizzy, James wandered through the woods until he met with his dogs and went to seek help from an
acquaintance who lived in the area.
- The powerful beam of light thrown by the UFO left the witness unconscious.
Upon arriving home and joining his wife he immediately went to seek medical treatment. He discovered a strange dark mark in the middle of his
forehead, he also complained about his loss of vision, etc. Fortunately for James, all these symptoms were getting better as the days passed.
It was not long until Flynn himself accompanied by some researchers went back again to the place where they found a circle burned of 22 meters (72
feet) in diameter on the forest floor that appeared to have been swept, it contained no sheet or branch or some other normal element in the soil of a
forest. Also, eight trees had burned from top to half the trunk. Later, James Flynn said:
"I'm waiting for the day when someone reveals the truth about all of this. I hope to live long enough"
No doubt this case is baffling because in most cases the UFO show themselves at will, but, do they choose the witness in advance? In this case, it
suggests the opposite as the UFO was caught by surprise and gives the feeling that it didn't want to be seen but perhaps it's what it wanted all
along, or it could be that the situation transcended their calculations by having a close approach by a human made them take violent measures by
disabling the person completely.
So do you believe UFO are hostile toward us? or do you believe some are and some are not? maybe the UFO did not want to be seen / bothered with at
I want to believe that aliens are in fact good in nature or at least neutral, I want to believe that the hostile races do not evolve enough to be an
interstellar species because they all end up destroying themselves (us? hopefully not). Share your thoughts!
