Description and Details
don't even believe in UFO's, but when I was a young girl
coming home from an evening with friends by the river
at Warrandyte, Melbourne, I saw something I could not
explain. Admittedly, I had had a few beers, but whatever
I saw seemed realer than any hallucination I could have
was sitting in the back seat of a friend's car, in the
middle seat, looking through the front windscreen. No
one else was looking in the same place as I was. The driver
was concentrating on the road. The other passengers chatting
amoungst themselves. I saw something barrelling towards
us just above the line of streetlights from the other
direction. It was heading in our direction but was above
us naturally. Very quickly, it had passed above our car
and continued following the line of streetlights away
from us. I ducked my head and struggled to watch it pass
over us, and into the rear windscreen and continued to
watch it as it went from view. I did try to point it out
to other passengers in the car, but it all happened quickly
enough that I could not articulate properly where to look
without missing myself the thing. I was transfixed."
was not big. It was actually suprisingly small, being
very low to earth, the road, I would have to say it was
only a meter or so in length. Too small to inhabit people.
It was also shaped like the quintessential image of a
UFO. a round flat disc with a small dome on the top. So
ludicrously like something you'd see in a looney tune
cartoon. I felt like an idiot telling my friends what
I had seen, and indeed none believed me."
was most unusual about this object was a) the speed and
precision at which it moved, it hovered so expertly, so
smoothly above the lights as if it were following an invisible
road, and went quite fast, and b) it was opaque, see through,
it was as though the night sky could be seen through the
object - it was black like the night sky, the only reason
I could see it was because - and this is the hardest thing
to explain - the edges of the object were glowing, like
neon, in white, sometimes color. The edges of the disc
were like this in a sphere, but the dome was hardest to
explain, although technically the shape of it should logically
rule out being able to form a neon edge - somehow, I could
see the surface of the dome in neon white and color alternately
- it was as if it was made from some strange plastic that
was see through but had a sheen to its surface."
would have been almost invisible at night to identify
and I only saw this thing because I had the luck of looking
directly at its point of appearance and then followed
it through trying to figure out what the hell it was!!!"
have often wondered if what I saw was maybe some strange
reflection of the street lights, but it was just so particularly
detailed and to this day, I can describe what I saw clearly."
