One sighting I had as a child has had me stumped ever since I have tried to find any rational/ irrational explanation.
It was summer of 84 or 85.
It was late, close to midnight or just after.
My grandparents were leaving our place and we, Mum, dad and I went out to see them off.
It was way past my bed time and still have quite vivid memories of going out to see them off.
My memory of the time was that as we were standing around on the footpath and talking everything silent and still for me.
The best description is like time stood still or moved at incredibly slow pace from my perspective.
There was light blue haze I could see in my peripheral towards the sky, I looked up and saw what could only be described as a volcanic rock, or
an asteroid with many craters, it was a light sky blue color with a glowing light blue haze around it, it moved at pace that would be like watching
car go by at 20-30 meters away traveling at 40-50 kmh, so not fast at all, just cruise by.
It looked very close as I could see so much detail, like I mentioned a volcanic rock,
Like this pic in the link but a light blue color with light blue glowing haze around it.
Actually that image very much resembles its shape as well, the detail is almost exactly how I remember this blue glowing rock to be.
It came from North/North East direction heading South/ south West towards the beach.
At that time of night during the summer when it was as warm as it was there were usually many people at the beach and I wondered how at the time how
many would see it while sitting on the sand at the beach.
Then looked up at my parents and grand parents to ask them did they see it and they were motionless and quiet (hence the time standing still) so I
looked up towards where it was headed and it eventually went past the point of where I could see it a few seconds later and then the sound returned
and I couldn't understand what just happened.
I didn't say anything or ask anything about it that I remember but vividly remember the experience and time standing still for about 10 or so seconds
while this thing cruised by above.
With the detail I saw I can only say that it seemed very close, like how I mentioned with the speed of a car being about 30 meters away, that is if I
was asked to judge its distance is what I would say so at that distance its size would have been around diameter of approx 10 meters.
About 10 years ago, maybe more, I downloaded all the reported sighting in Australian History that i found online by a group/organization that was able
to compose a file with all UFO reports from 1900 to the the late 90s.
Going through it I was shocked that nothing at all resembled my sighting, nothing reported where I saw it and when I saw it.
It was so real and unreal at the same time due to the time standing still experience.
One way I could describe that sensation is, as I have had it a few, more than a few times in life is your brain goes into overdrive and your
perception of time seems to slow down but never, only that night did it last for more than a moment like a second .
I have had the slowing of time when playing basketball and being in the zone, when driving and avoiding having a crash, when being in accidents,
quite a few times in life I have had the experience of being in a moment when time slows but never like that night where I could look around and see
others motionless, have everything silent and look away and focus on something else and then look back and people still motionless.
The only way I can describe it is alien, a glowing alien rock. not an alien craft or alien beings which I could argue with my skeptical self if I
wanted to believe it was due to its perceived speed and proximity so a glowing alien rock because it was almost exactly like the pic in the link just
the color I describe with the blue haze.
or it was child's imagination which was somehow mixed into my clear memory of that night we went see my grandparents off which was memorable because
it was the latest I was ever up at night, the first time I was up past midnight that i can remember.
Seeing as I couldn't find anything reported when I went searching for answers its just something like a memory or simply as I said my imagination.
But I believe it was real.
Other stuff like seeing white orbs and some that did make irrational movements I can explain away as hallucinations from things like fatigue,
although I never do really discount them as such in full and keep an open mind that I could be having a spiritual experience of some sort or seeing
Mork from Planet Ork make an appearance to show off his new ride and what it can do.
