Hey there Thoriumisbest,
Well I think you are wise to be cautious ... and I speak as a 'experiencer' but thankfully with the benevolent kind ... also I didn''t go looking
... they found me.
But that's not the main reason for my replying to your OP. I'm replying because of the flashlight method you mentioned.
A few weeks ago (Oct 31st to be precise) a friend and I were out celebrating the Samhain Sabbat (as my name suggests I am a practicing witch ... real
deal traditional type not the weekend hippy type). Anyhoo, we were out in the middle of nowhere as is our way and we both noticed a beam of light
about a mile or so away. Initially we weren't sure whether the beam of light was coming from the sky and pointing down to the ground ... or from the
ground pointing up to the sky ... after watching it for a few minutes we decided it was ground to sky.
Well we carried on with our own thing and when we were finished we were sitting quietly with our own thoughts ... and I was looking up at the sky ...
the beam was still visible off to our left ... but what drew my attention was this amazingly big bright star straight in front of where we were
I knew it wasn't Sirius (wrong position and far to high in the sky) ... so then I thought it must be Jupiter because I'd remembered reading on here
that Jupiter was quite prominent at that time.
This amazing 'star' was the same beautiful blue/white colour and twinkled the same as Sirius but considerably bigger. I looked across at my friend
to see if she had her eyes open or if she was meditating but I couldn't tell it was too dark so I stayed quiet and continued to admire the
As I watched I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me because it seemed to grow even bigger ... then my friend beside me said 'are you watching
that star' ? And I told her I was.
We watched it putting on the most amazing dance for about 20mins ... then all of a sudden it grew tiny and turned orange ... then it started to move
towards the direction of the light beam (to our left) and stopped about half way. It came back to it's original position where it grew and brightened
again for about 30 seconds before shrinking and turning orange again ... after another 15 minutes or so it blinked out and never returned.
Now I have not mentioned this on ATS until now because I didn't have any pictures or proof to go with the account ... but we could only conclude that
what we had seen had shown intelligent reaction possibly encouraged by the beam of light that someone had been shining into the sky ... and incidently
the beam was switched off once the 'star' blinked out ... was amazing to see.
The point of me telling you about this is to conclude that lightbeams definately seem to attract such things ... but I don't think I would tempt fate
just in case you attract the wrong kind.
