So recently I have found myself as the "me too" poster; a few members have posted their experiences that are so close to mine I felt compelled to
say "hey, that happened to me too." I have been reluctant to post without evidence I guess because I don't want to be that person that is, as
people say around here, "flamed." But I decided to bite the bullet and post here in the paranormal forum in the hopes to find possible explanations
to a phenomenon that I have wondered about for years and have never found anyone who has had a similar experience nor has an explantion for it. Here
I was traveling to Hawaii to meet friends (it was spring break and I believe the year 2000) and was on the second part of the flight from Cali to the
Big Island when I experienced a very odd light phenomena. I was traveling alone and was passing the time by listening to the different in-flight
channels with head phones that connect to the arm rest. It was one of those jumbo planes and I was in the middle section on an isle seat. -Stay with
me now.- So I had my eyes closed because I was trying to zone out; not meditating or even sleepy at all when I saw I pink flash. With my eyes
It was the strangest thing I have ever not seen. Let me try to explain... So all I was "seeing" with my eyes closed was darkness when all of a
sudden a pinpoint of pink light started from the front of the plain and strobed once through me and to the back of the plain while getting bigger and
brighter as it went. It happened in the matter of about three seconds. I will never forget that pink flash.
I immediately opened my eyes to look around to see if anyone else had seen this. A handful of other people were looking around like I was. I broke
the silence to say "You saw that too didn't you?" One guy close to me said "ya!" I asked, "what did you see?" He replied, "A pink light!"
The others started to turn back to whatever they were or weren't doing. Me: "What do you think it was?" He started to turn back in his seat,
"... I don't know... nothing." And that was it!!! These few people that had seen this shut their minds off to it and then nothing.
I couldn't believe it! This amazing thing we just saw and nobody was interesting in thinking about it. I was shocked. It was like it didn't even
happen anymore to them. My mind was whirring. Here we were in the middle of nowhere cruising in the air above the Pacific and a pink light just...
scanned us. That is the only way I could describe it.
I thought is it military? Is it some sort of natural quarts flash? A sun phenomenon? WTH was it? It was night time so I thought, some strange
lightning? We were not traveling through a storm. There was no turbulance. It was beyond me. And to this day I have not heard of anything else
like it. I know it happened because of the reaction of the handful of other people reacting as well.
Someone here at ATS please shed some light on this for me -no pun intended.
