my name is Alfie, and I've just joined the forum, as you can obviously tell. I'm not really one for forums and the like, but I really didn't know
where else to go. I spoke to a friend of mine, and after telling him what I'd seen (or I think I saw anyway), he told me to come to this site. I
don't really know why, but I feel like I need to know if I am going crazy.
I'm a natural skeptic. Up till now, I have never really believed in ET or UFO's or anything like that. I don't know anything about the field. But
I'm willing to reconsider.
I live just outside London, in a small village, but I work in London. I have to drive back every evening. Normally, it is uneventful, but two weeks
ago, I was driving back along a small B-road about 10 miles from home (er, i don't know if American readers will be sure what that is, sorry I don't
know the American equivalent), and I saw a very bright light in the sky. At first, I thought nothing of it - I live in the country, and I have lived
near military bases for, more or less, my whole life. I just thought it was a plane or helicopter or something. So i just kept on driving. I'm not
given to sensationalism, or undue concern. The thing is, as I was driving along, this light descended, and started to parallel the road, and more
specifically, my car. Now, I thought, "okay, maybe it's some stupid Harrier pilot trying to buzz me" (in Wales, that happens all the time). But as
I was driving, I could make out that it wasn't a plane or helicopter - at least, not one I have ever seen, or heard of. This thing was jet, jet black
- it was only about 6pm, and the sky is still fairly bright here then. Anyway, this "object" was jet black, and it was shaped like a tube, but
rounded at either end. I'm no expert, but to me, it looked massive - maybe 18 to 25 feet, or something. The bright light was coming from the "rear"
end of the object. Now, I thought "maybe it is the fuselage of a plane", so I looked for the wings. But there were none I could see, and what
started to make me worry was that I opened my window, and the only sound I could hear was my own engine. There was no sound of any other propulsion
system, or engine.
As I said before, I'm a natural skeptic. I don't generally beleive in stuff like this. But it was what happened next that really scared me. I'd
slowed down to try to get a better look at this thing, but it was almost as if the thing knew what I was doing. All of a sudden, right in front of me,
it shot off - really, really fast. There was no sound, not even a engine roar or anything. I've seen RAF Harriers and jets - I know what they sound
like. This thing didn't make a noise. Nothing. It just accelerated off, and it moved faster than anything I have ever seen in my life. Ever. I'm
going to be honest. I'm a grown man in my 30's. I have a family, a professional job. But I was a bit scared.
I carried on driving, more because I was in shock, and I just wanted to get home. But about 5 minutes later or so, this thing turned up again. I had
the shock of my life, because one minute it wasn't there, and the next minute, I caught a glimpse of something out of the corner of my eye, turned my
head, and it was just there. Just keeping pace with my car. My window was still open, and I hadn't heard it approach. At this point, I really freaked
out. You are probably reading this and thinking, "big deal, why would you freak out", but I have never seen anything like this before. All the time
I was driving, there was not a single soul on the road, and to tell the truth I was really, really scared. I kept hoping some other car would turn up!
Anyway, the thing that got me worried was that the object still had it's light on, and after a couple of minutes, the light shone onto my car, and
sort of bathed my car. It was really weird - the light was very warm, and I just thought it was some sort of spotlight. After lighting up my car for
about 2 or 3 minutes, it suddenly shot off, and just disappeared.
I got home without further incident. I didn't tell my wife. To be honest, after it had left, I was sort of in denial. I didn't want to discuss it
with her - she might have thought I was crazy. I just thought that I reacted ridiculously, that it can be explained. But as time has gone on, I have
started to have really strong headaches, always in the evenings, always around the same sort of time, around six in the evening. I don't really know
why - I have no histiry of migranes, and I do not react to stress by having headaches. I have been to see my doctor, but he has assured me that my
symptoms are nothing to worry about. The thing is, I have more questions than answers now. What was that thing? How did it move so quickly, without
making any sound? Why the hell am I having headaches? I am really confused.
I suppose I decided to come onto this forum after talking to a friend of mine called Matt. He said that I shouldn't be ashamed, that there are other
people who have expeienced similar things. I told him I didn't want to talk to people who were "crazy". But he asked me if I would have thought
someone with my story was crazy, if it hadn't happened to me. I agreed that he was right. I suppose I'm trying to find out if others have had
similar things happen. This whole thing has really got me thinking. I want to know what that thing was. I know what I saw. That was no plane, no
balloon or halluncination. Whatever it was, it was strange, and I'll be damned if I'm going to let the matter rest till I find out more about it.
Thanks for reading.
