Subject: Ufo sighting Date: July 1, 2006 From: [firstname.name]@wanadoo.fr
Hello Mr Gross I am delighted to have become acquainted with your website. My name is [other firstname] I am 19 years and I write to you from the island of La Réunion a small island lost in the Indian Ocean but a French department in case you did not know that I am obliged to specify that because there are people who do not know yet that we exist. And hats off to your website, for it very complete, a true heaven for the would-be ufologist.Enough said let's come to the core of my message.
you see not so long ago I really did not believe in the phenomena known as extra terrestrial but there is a but.
Indeed, in August 2005 it is the southern winter for the southern hemisphere and on the 17th more precisely I will never forget this day because it was the day after my birthday.
This evening we were my brother and I in the kitchen as usual discussing of all and everything when suddenly it is 09:05 p.m. local time, and the bulb of the kitchen started to give signs of weakening as if the power was going to be off and indeed approximately 2s later there is actually an interruption of current and as I was close to the window right before there was the power blackout I saw a strange gleam a little like an enormous electromagnetic ball I believed that the power post of food had exploded.
It was the blackout [english word used] in the house as they say so well over the Channel. But that evening it was very clearly outside much more clear than in the inside and due, it was an evening of full moon so just don't ask me why I went for a walk in the garden, maybe because of the electric ball and my amazement was very big because when I glanced up opposite to the moon I saw something which moved in the sky at this precise moment to me there was no doubt that it was a traditional airliner since there is an airport at approximately thirty kilometer from our premises; my brother(aged 15)who was right behind me observed the apparatus too and then while looking at it he jokingly said well that's weird you would think its one of the Star Wars spacecraft!Then my father an aviation buff who was on its balcony also observed the scene surely attracted too by the moonlight he came outside of his bedroom located upstairs.
A few seconds later, thus did my father thus tell me "hey [firstname] didn't u notice something weird?" I answered that I hadn't, and then he tells me "have u ever seen a plane in flight without making a noise?"and that's when it fell upon me because indeed this apparatus moved at a low altitude while producing a powerful light which passed from a pale orange to the yellow with a small red light but especially most disconcerting in this case is that it did not produce any sound except maybe a very gentle whistling sound when it passed very close to the house the object moved so gently from east to west that it could taken photographs of our house.
I would have liked to be able to take photographs but in the panic I remained frozen my father and my brother too besides.
What is disconcerting in this case is that oddly the power went out suddenly a little bit just before this thing passes right in front of our eyes and my father told me that as he had a superb overview on the city that the power had stopped right at the very place of the passing of the apparatus.
Oddly when we could not see it anymore with the naked eye, the electricity came back at once.
And it is not over strangely at 11:05 p.m. 2 hours later exactly after there was again an interruption of the power and guess what I looked by the window and I again saw this strange moving UFO this time a little further and moving on the contrary from west to east, I known I do say UFO because to my knowledge I do not know a human apparatus which does not produce any sound when it is in full flight and which seems to control electricity in its own way; shortly afterwards the thing literally disappeared at an incredible speed and the power was back normally just afterwards.
That it I swear on the authenticity of my analysis and it was not a hallucination we were 3 to observe it maybe more in the vicinity I do not know, bye for now and til later maybe with other testimonys.
