On September 16th, 1994 at the Ariel primary school in rural Zimbabwe, 60+ school children described seeing a disc shaped craft land behind the school during the morning break time. Some of them reported seeing two strange beings approach the group. There were multiple sightings of unusual aerial phenomena by thousands of Zimbabweans during this same time period.
The children were interviewed immediately thereafter by Tim Leach, BBC Bureau Chief for Zimbabwe, and then by several other news agencies. Noted Harvard psychiatrist Dr. John Mack traveled to Zimbabwe to interview the children in depth due to the unusual nature of this event. After exhaustive investigation Dr. Mack concluded that the children were not making up the story.
Though this story was initially publicized worldwide, it quickly disappeared from the public eye but not from the hearts and minds of those who witnessed it. For twenty years many of these witnesses have felt that their voices have not been heard. Until now.

I don't understand why this story hasn't been shared more?! I only heard about it in the past 3 years.

Here is a link all about the case .. interviews drawings etc 22 years later
Video drawings eye witnesses
Someone in the article says how similar all the drawings are, but any 2 year old could tell that Not One of the drawings of the UFO or ET looks the same...they are ALL different.
There is a legit video of the children interviewed not long after the event, days/weeks I cant remember.
At the time watching it, the children never showed any fear or were scared or anything, they were quite cheerful, and happy.......one does wonder if it all really happened.?
I not sure how this young American red haired, freckled girl was in a school in Zimbarbwee, in the 90s...I didn't understand her explanation, why she was there.
