I have had two encounters. One where I saw the ship, and one where....well, let's just say I'm not exactly sure what I saw.
I'll start with the one where I saw it: I was on a sailboat on sunny sunny Sunday afternoon with about 5 other people. It was on Lake Jacomo, just
outside of Kansas City, Missouri. It was about 6 years ago; I think I was 34 at the time.
I was not the one sailing the boat that day; I was just a passenger. I always tend to "space out" when I'm on the water (those waves just put me
into a nice alpha state) and so I was still very relaxed when I looked up and saw a silver ball hanging over the lake.
The first thing I thought of was that it was just one of those silver things they put on wires so that planes don't fly into them. But then, I did a
double take, becuase I realized I was in the middle of a lake, and there were no wires anywhere! So, I looked again, and I realized that this silver
ball was just hovering there, not moving.
Now, this is where it gets strange: I tried to tell my fellow passengers, and even the guy who was sailing the boat what I was seeing....but not ONE
of them would look up. It was surreal. It was like being in a strange dream or nightmare...or even a movie.... where you're trying to get people to
listen to you, but nobody can hear you. It was weird. For like 5 minutes, I kept saying: Hey guys, look up. What's that?
But nobody looked up. Once, the guy who was sailing the boat that day (they were very serious about sailing, but seriously!) said (without looking up)
"I'm sure it's just an ultra-light airplane. We get lots of those up here." I said no, it's a silver ball...just look up. But he wouldn't, and
nobody else would.
Finally, it just hit me: nobody else was supposed to see it. Just me. I finally just sat back, and I just kept staring at it, and then we had to
"turn about." When we turned the boat around and came back the other way, it was gone. Poof. No sound.....nothing.
It was one of the strangest occurrences of my life.
Except for this; now this story was even stranger. I don't know for sure WHAT the source of this story is, but I think it may have been a UFO:
I was in second grade, growing up in Nebraska. I was riding my bike in front of my house, in our neighborhood, and the last thing I remember my mom
telling me before the incident in question was "Honey, don't go too far...it looks like tornado weather." Well, she didn't have to tell me twice,
because our house actually got hit by a tornado that year, and after that, I never went too far away from the house during a tornado watch.
So, I was riding my bike, and then all of a sudden: I was stopped. Except it wasn't me that stopped me. And, on top of that, even though I was
stopped, my feet were still on the pedals! It was like I was more than stopped: I was suspended in mid-pedal.
The most vivid thing about it was that all around me was a curtain of blue-white light...the color of lightning. But no sound....no heat...no
smell.....nothing to hint of lightning except for the color of the light.
I remember looking over my shoulder to the left, and all I could see was a curtain of blue-white lightning. I remember looking over my shoulder to the
right, and all I could see was a curtain of blue white lightning. Then, I looked up....and all I could see was a tunnel of light. And then that's
it....that's all that I remember. I vaguely remember running into my house, but yet I told nobody...I think. Because then I lost all memory of the
Until I moved into a different house in Omaha, and it was a few years down the road. That was the year I remembered the event with the light (don't
know what else to call it!) and the same year, I not only remembered the event, but started having visions of strange future events.....which
eventually came true.
I can't say for sure that source of the light that day was a UFO, but I don't know what else it could be that could erase my memory for years.
Although for years, I had convinced myself that it must have been some strange weather anomaly, I've now started finally admitting to myself that it
might have come from a UFO, especially since I saw one years later, on that day at the lake when nobody else would look up.
(Once again, just to stress, the event that day on the lake was really eerie...like my fellow sail-boat companion's subconscious minds were told NOT
to look up.)
