Hello, your website is enthralling...
Here the account of two phenomenon which happened to me. The first took place in in spring 1997 (I did not note the day). It must have been 11 a.m. since my apartment was exposed to the east and that the sun flooded the living room. I lived on the 7th floor, on the edge of the Seine, between the Louis BlÚriot quay and the avenue of Versailles in Paris. Suddenly I was petrified by a terrifying noise. I really believed that a jet was going to crash on the building. I rushed at the window, believing my last hour had come but there was nothing to see. This noise lasted approximately 40 seconds then stopped short, as it had started. I then descended in the court where the caretaker was - You saw something? I say"
- Not, but I too thought that it was a plane. he answered.
Like me, he was still shaking about it.
I at once phoned the nearest police station to ask whether they knew what had occurred. Nobody had heard anything...
Nobody either in the building seems to have heard anything. Like if in this immense unit including 5 bodies of buildings of 7 floors, only the caretaker and I were present. However, such a noise should have caused chatterings among the inhabitants of the places, the neighbors of the district and even in the surroundings.
The character of brevity and suddenness of the event led me to believe that it was a UFO. It is said indeed, that these phenomena are not inevitably perceived or seen by everyone. In any case, there, we were at least two.
I would have liked to be able to corroborate my testimony with somebody who would have been confronted to the same thing at that time.
Another story happened to me in 2002 or 2003. It was in the summer, at the edge of the Loire where I now live (northern bank, between Angers and Ancenis). It was so nice that I decided to sleep outside to be able to benefit from a splendid sky. Many planes passed with regular intervals south towards north or from the east towards the west, as they are seen also by day. Then, emerging from the east, therefore on my right and from behind me, a ball, larger than a star and seeming very high in the sky, made movements that neither an insect, neither a bird, nor a plane, can carry out. Right in front of me - I looked towards the north -, the ball moved at a vertiginous speed by making zig zags north-south, returned towards the east then towards the west several times then slipped by towards north and disappeared.
It has been a while already that I was interested in this kind of phenomena, without making a link with what had corrured to me in Paris. I had also recently read a book named Thelos which certified that the UFOS were not visions in the mind. After having seen this ball, facetious like a playing cat, I was carried of joy, was persuaded that "they" had wanted to prove their existence to me.
I should have noted the date and the hour in both cases. I will not fail to do that the next time...
