Just my two cents...
First of, before i get into a somehow similar event that happened to me I would like to say that our subconscious desire of "exciting and out of the
ordinary" events can very often be a catalyst that turns a peculiar or rare explainable event into a peplum.
In our regulated and sometimes linear lifes we seek the extraordinary. THis is why it is often said that only 5% of unexplained phenomenons are truely
mysterious. We tend to want/need to create the extra-ordinary...
This said, let me please give you a brief account of what happened to me in early June 2004 in Lausanne Switzerland.
I was at the time studying engineering at Uni and was renting a small appartement in a little village along the coast of lake Leman called Lutry.
My bedroom was on groundfloor with a sliding window giving on a small garden with a view on the lake, surround by large and magestuous mountains. I
used to find this place very boring at the time. It was a small town totally dead in winter (ironically would be very happy to live there again
Anyway. I was having lunch outside facing the lake. The weather was fairly hot for the season and the sky was blue with a few large clouds. I do not
remember exactly at what speed it happened but I suddenly notticed the weather had changed. A strange fog started to advance on the lake, like a low
cloud. Faster than I could realise the whole lake was covered by an incredibely thick haze.
The whole air was a dense off-white color and visibility over the lake and background montains was none.
This is when I started hearing the BOOMS.
I was so surprised that I really thought something had exploded around me. It didn't sound like storm. It was a dry, clear and loud boom. Exactly
like a sound bareer being broken. Then came other explosions, sometimes they were very close to each other, really like an exchange of fire.
I was totally astonished and my brain just couldn't process what was happening. Was there a military exercise on the lake??? In such a weather??? In
a civilian area???
Also, I remember a deep, monotone rumbling sound, like a static get engine in a close distance. A totally imposibble to locate enormous get engine.
It lasted maybe 30 mn... I stood there staring at the white nothingness listening to some unidentified explosions.
Then "as fast as it had started" it stopped. In 30 mn, the haze dissipated and it was like all this had been a dream.
I will never know what happened that day. I do know the weather(specially in mountain areas) can be very surprising and I would not be surprised if
this could be explained by some rare storm event.
Nevertheless it was one of the most unsetting experience I ever had
All the Best,
