Hello. This is my first thread so excuse me if I break etiquette in some way.
One reason I recently joined was to seek opinions – or see if anyone has experienced something similar - on a situation several years ago that left
me with a very strong conviction in the likely existence of visitors to Earth. I know I am probably preaching to the choir, and the idea of alien
craft is not new to me, however, my experience, albeit brief, is something that simply cannot be explained in terms of natural earth-bound phenomena.
My experience may sound tame to a lot of others on here or around the world, but I find it no less compelling. I won’t say the location if you
don’t mind as I am a little bit unsure about providing too much information for personal reasons.
I was at the beach several years ago with my brother. It was one of those very sultry, slovenly days where the temperature was in the 39-42 degree
Celsius range. The water was a brilliant blue, and was very flat and glassy with not a whisper of wind in the air at all. There was not a single,
solitary wisp of a cloud to be seen anywhere either. Where this occurred, these types of day are relatively common in summer, sometimes even winter.
So, in a nutshell, the elements were extremely calm, it was very very quiet (only about 10 people or so on the beach, which is composed of white sand)
and about a dozen or so seagulls standing just at the water’s edge trying to cool down from the heat.
In this kind of heat, people and animals slow down, so…after a dip, my brother and I sat near the water’s edge, just looking out to sea. The whole
area was very bright due to the intense sun and bright blue, cloudless sky. Several seagulls right near us were just standing right on the water’s
edge, lapping up the relief that the faint surge of sea water brought to them.
Then, and please understand this happened very fast, there was a massive, huge and sudden change in the atmosphere as everything went very, very dark.
And within less than 2 seconds, because we were looking out to the horizon, we saw this indescribably large shadow speeding out to sea and then it was
gone. At the precise time it moved directly over us, the seagulls all freaked out and jumped up in unison, squawking and flapping their wings, before
settling back down just as quickly. We both looked each other and said “Errrr…. did you see that?!”.
The shadow, as far as we could tell, extended right and left for what would be at least 500metres in either direction, quite possibly more as it was
hard to judge… Similarly, unless you happened to be looking out to the horizon at that exact moment, if it passed you overhead in say your backyard
or in the street, it is more than likely you simply wouldn’t have registered it – just thinking in your mind that you blinked or something. Plus,
you would not have been able to judge the speed or size of the shadow.
There was not a single cloud in the sky, no airplane anywhere, no noise…whatever made the shadow was not up in the atmosphere that we could see
(unless it was invisible). And whatever made this shadown had to have been massive! Basically, something passed between the sun and us, something huge
in order to make such a shadow, and it was travelling very fast.
I don’t mean to sound dramatic, but neither of us can come up for a rational explanation. Nor is there some sort of authority you could report this
to, without sounding kind of ridiculous or like some crackpot.
I don’t feel I need to prove to anyone what happened to me, as I am content and happy in knowing something massive passed between the earth and sun
that day. And without knowing much about physics/mathematics, I would wager that given the size of the shadow it could well have been in our
atmosphere, yet was invisible. It sounds stupid, I know.
Anyway, just interested if anyone has experienced something similar, or if anyone knows of any similar accounts on here or elsewhere. Thanks.
