Erasing memories, creating memories, defeating the optical systems \ centre of the brain, creating situational uncertainty, creating visual wells. Hearing voices, seeing illusions, obeying instructions or suggestions you believe are your own inner voices.
"Somebody Else's Problem", an effectively-magical field that obscures things you think aren't relevant to you, such that even though you see them (or hear them or read them) you don't actually *notice*, and quickly forget. More generally, the phenomenon that causes people to ignore issues that they know about but think of as either not something they can do anything about, or not personally relevant to them right now. This can result in something that's very important to a group of people being ignored by every individual member of that group. Popularized by Douglas Adams in the "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" series, in which Ford Prefect describes it as: "An SEP is something we can't see, or don't see, or our brain doesn't let us see, because we think that it's somebody else's problem.... The brain just edits it out, it's like a blind spot. If you look at it directly you won't see it unless you know precisely what it is. Your only hope is to catch it by surprise out of the corner of your eye." In that series, a strange object can be effectively hidden from view while out in plain sight, by an "SEP field", which "relies on people's natural predisposition not to see anything they don't want to, weren't expecting, or can't explain." It's just been sitting there all day, hundreds of people have walked by, and nobody said anything or even turned to look! It's like it's got an SEP field around it.

Yes, right on the edge of the city. No one looks up. The elderly in their trailer court, the stadium across the road, nor the other townhouses, except maybe there are a few who don't report things, perhaps because they' have this from time to time and know not to report it. The ones who did share, because my kids couldn't resist talking, and the reservation which was adjacent to the towhhouses, they witnessed some of what we witnessed and possibly had their own memories of contact. Natives don't share, they renounce our white system. And kept their knowledge mostly to themselves.
Even sitting in a stadium, you could witness a craft, and no one else, if they wanted. They unlock your ability to see them stealthed, and you could have missing time or a time splice and actually be on board that craft.
They are way over our heads, we are anthill tech to them and the universe is not like we think it is, its weird and whacky quantum science, holographic, multidimensional, or layers of density, and time is just a program in our brain, with everything based on infinities without and within all things.

They travel many light years or across dimensions to enter the atmosphere of Earth in their comfortable sleek spacehsip, expending more energy in their trip than our civilization has generated in its entire existence, all just to gently approach you and light the area in blue and then to leave unexpectedly forever?
Believe what you wnat to believe, but it probably wasn't aliens at all, and even if it were, you were just lucky to get a glimpse.
You were 14-15, not an expert on aerial phenomena. Neither were the people driving with you, right? Don't you think it's possible you saw a blimp or a helicopter or an airplane, and just misjudged the distance or sound?
Most sightings are in fact misidnetiifcations of mundane phenomena. What makes you think you're one of the rare few who had an unexplained encounter?
I also think airplanes and helicopters and blimps are seen routinely over metropolitan areas. I myself have seen many dozens at night, some of them even flying lower. People probably didn't blink twice at what you saw, unless they were right up close to it and had been watching it. Most people are busy anyway with things to do and can't look up all day.

While religion is a whole different ball game, we have sufficient evidence from ancient man to modern times that there is something very bizarre going on & we are apart of something we have yet to discover.
I truly believe there is a huge significance to our race, and we don't know it yet.
