Ive got some tasty pics to show people but (this is gonna sound sad, ive been here for a year!0 but I still do not know how to post pics so that they appear with the text on the post, no links. Little help.

EDIT- Havnet worked the pics out, but did some research and find out that the kids had seen objects in the sky three days prior to the event and that they wondered what they were.

I also found out that the kids saw the craft land in an area they were not allowed in, why was this? Was it dangerous in some way? Maybe some kind of insect nest or boggy, swampy area? Havent found out yet but will keep looking.

I have also found out that swamp can actually give off gas that goes up in the air and combusts, therefore lookinglike lights appearing and disapperaing.

Another thing, some accounts say the beings came out of the side of the craft, some say through the top, this could be normal confusion but it could be more.

Ill keep looking.

This suit is a bit weird looking and could look a wee bit ET to anyone who was not familiar with it, coupled with a big `ol compressor whirring away, it would be wuite a spectical to the little ones. Though this kind of suit was not invented until well after the events, ruling it out.

This is the most common form of suit which would have been widely used at the time and doesnt really look like an alien, even if you were thick as cream you would know what it is. So I am ruling out the possibility that the children could have seen bee suits. Maybe gas masks, but thats for a later post, I havent found any pics from civilain available mask from the time.

PS- Thanks for the help with the piccys, it was a life saver!!
for you guys.

EDIT- Posted the same pic twioce, because I am as thick as cream.

EDIT 2- And again, I am seriously losing the plot.
EDIT 3- Got it!! Does a little jig of joy.

I'm prepaired to rule out the Bee suits , you might confuse a few kids that age , but not 62 of them , with Bee suits.

posted on Jul, 22 2005 @ 05:11 PM
Thats what I thought, kids arent as stupid as people make them out to be, I can never trust my brother friends now, they set up a perfect ambush for me with their water guns, didnt hit any but me. It must have been miraculously planned.

Oh, and thanks for the U2U help, appreciated.

What kind of compresser are ypu talking about? I assumed ya'll were speaking concerning an air compesser. When you compare the image of the ship that the children drew

to a picture of an fancy air compesser

They look dissimilar

I have to agree, with that! I remember being a kid that age , theres no way those kids were drawing ETV's if they only had seen air compressors!

Muzzle, you got my WATS vote for this month! great story, dont think I ever heard it!

I think this is more than likely a real event, see nothing to debunk here.

posted on Jul, 23 2005 @ 03:47 AM
I dont buy the compressor idea either, but I just wanted to show people that its worth trying to debunk stuff even if you believe it, because if you cant find anything that proves it a fake, its even more believable. I havent found anything that can disprove this yet, but I am going to keep trying.

Im not one of those people who has their mind fixed on one thing, I can be pushed either way.

Now lets look at the pics of the 'UFOs' Some have said that they look very similiar, no they dont. This could be the kids doing what they do best, messing stuff up. It could be that the craft landed just over 100m away form them. Or they could be lying.

Picture 1

This pictures design pops up again in the next picture, but it si drastically different to any of the others, it does have some little holes in but also has a very obvious door and maybe a cockpit window on the front. It also has a litle ariel, as does the next picture.

Picture 2

The thing about this picture is, it is almost identical to the above one. Even the occupant looks basically the same. It was obviously drawn by someone older or more experienced at drawing. The fact that makes me wonder though is why do these pics differ so greatly form the others? Is someone telling porky pies, I think so! The dipictions of the craft differing so greatly by coincedance is almost impossible, evn more so that two pics look exactly the same.

Picture 3

As far as I know, this ones pretty unique as well, but does match with the most common picture of the craft, just no holes. Has different landing gear, but could be a kid with not as good eyesight or something.

Picture 4

This is another interesting one, as like the above pic the craft is situated within some trees, which none of the other pics show may I add. The basic shape is the same as well.

Picture 5

This picture is the same as the above two, but is a bit more elongated, the drawer appears to be showing the craft either hovering or in flight, but the picture may not have been completed when the phote was taken.


What we have here is two very different types of craft which does make the story less reliable, but not completely false. If anyone can explain why the two desigs look so different, feel free.

Another thing I have to add is that one of the children in the links you provided said that the craft had bright red lights on it. Why do none of the other children mention this? Proably becasue this paticular kid was lying, which goes to show that others could have lied about certain things.

Now then, this post is not ment to completely disprove the story, far from it. I just wanted to show that the kids were easily open to telling little mistruths or making up their own little bits to the encounter. This does make the story (as I said before) a wee bit more unreliable.

seems like a real encounter at first. however, i do strongly believe that these werent ET's...due to teh reasons said above.they could have been workers in suits in a contamited area/swamp area etc etc. Also, why lie? because it can get ATTENTION, and attention can equal money, tourism, ego etc etc.

I think the whole bee / gas thing is laughable - maybe if there were two children, but not with that many. I bet the person who made that up laughed to themselves as they drove home that night.

I agree that there are differences in the drawings, but isn't that to be expected? I know when I was younger I was useless at drawing and could never draw it how I imagined it.

The fact that there are trees in some pictures and not in others is irrelevant really. If someone said to the child "draw what you saw" some might draw the trees, some might just leave them out. It's artistic license (albeit with small children).

Someone mentioned that one of the drawings looked like it had been done by someone with a fair bit of skill. I noticed this too - if you look it's really well shaded.

I tried to search for something on google related to child witness testimony, if there was any research on how children would react when they all describe the same thing. I suspect that they'd all come up with varying things, but keep the same theme, however, I couldn't find any articles to back this up.

Everyone has focused on the encounter thing, but what about the message, or absence thereof?

Firstly "mankind is destroying itself" is hardly a noteworthy or helpful message for visiting aliens to imaprt to the puny humans. However it may be the sort of thing worried kids might imagine if they have been doing a little social studies (or if Mugabe was being talked about).

The message says nothing, informs nothing, gives no help. Why bother?

Thats where it falls down for me, it may be the message some kids might say to warn others after reading about world events, but it sure isn't worth flying a zillion light years to earth to impart.

Also, although it was rebutted in the first post, why the heck children in a rural setting in Africa.

Come on!

You fly all the way to earth to impart some important message and give it to some powerless children in one of the most corrupt and powerless countries on one of the most poverty striken and powerless landmases on earth?

Why not just pop into a Calcutta slum and give someone the instructions for making Fusion power....

posted on Jul, 23 2005 @ 10:56 AM
i dont think we can be trusted with fusion power just yet; being our govt would rush to make a Fusion Bomb lol
and Fusion Guns
Fusion powered Subs/Spacejets/Tanks etc

i would really like to know what EarthSister thinks of this...
Why would the aliens choose these little kids?

perhaps she can lend insight...
i dunno

ill u2u her and see if she has time to come help us figure that part out

i know alot of u dont trust her but shes all we got

so lets see what she says

Heh, nice answer muzzelflash

BTW if the visitation WAS expected to acomplish anything, it failed.
We are discussing an event that is 10 years old (?) and few others heard about where the reasearchers are unfindable or dead, and nothing ever eventuated.

Waste of time really.... pity.....

posted on Jul, 23 2005 @ 11:38 AM
I heard about this story a while back, I remember believing in it because of the fact that it was 62 the middle of nowhere in Africa! ...and their pictures described the same thing. I also saw videos of interviews.

Guys, have you done research on the kids now? How old are they now and have they had any other sightings? What about their lives? Have they changed in any way because of that? That might be the goal of that ET that visited them. To change their view of life, of the world. I don't know, just assuming.

I'm going to go research now. If you guys find anything, post it here please.
