Gazrock, have a look at my blog "why I don't believe in Aliens" for an update on the statistical probability of alien life.

Gazrock, can you give us a detailed acct of your encounter?
How old were you and the rest of the kids?
Did they all have the same problem with not being able to wake thier parents?
Had you any any of the other kids seen the crafts in that area again after that time?
So, I take it your stance on alien existence would be, yes, they do exist? Or is it not that simple? I only ask becuase now you are an adult and have had ample time to weed out the possibilities of what those ships could have been.
Gazrok: that's an amazing experience; any idea how old you were at the time (i can't recall what age you're supposed to be in 4th grade anymore, and also I'm not sure if it wasn't different then)?
also, what kind of age distribution do you remember there being at the base? like, was it all just adults and kids in grades
