I have always believed that there is other life out in our great big, vast Universe. I think it rather self-centred to think we are the only living organisms. Some will be far more advanced than us and some much more primitive, but they are out there.
I myself have had a few experiences with flying objects that I cannot explain. One was when a bunch of us were ‘camping’ in a friends backyard. We were 12 or 13 years old. Several of us experienced this event. There was a object, quite high up and over what is called The Georgian Triangle. (in Georgian Bay). It was jutting back and forth very quickly, then very quickly accelerated straight up and then vanished. We weren’t the only ones who saw it that night. The sighing buzzed around town for a few days. There have been many other sightings over Georgian Bay.
Another instance was when I was younger. It was a hot summer night and I was walking home from a friend’s house when a very bright, low flying, silent and massive object flew over me. When I got home a few moments later, one of my younger brothers was in the front yard freaking out and crying. My mom was trying to get everyone back into the house. My dad called the local airport and they said they knew of nothing that had flown over at that moment. Again, several others witnessed it.
These are just two of my own stories, so many other people also have their own. In the last few days, The Pentagon has released footage of instances where Navy pilots witnessed UFO’s. Their timing is interesting. A way to distract the US from COVID? Who knows, but I’m glad they released it.
I often wonder if the fact that that I do believe was the reason I read so many non-fiction books about UFO’s as a teen and even into my twenties or why I love watching 1950s scifi or why I keep hoping a UFO would land here and we could have an actual conversation with a being from another planet. At one point I read several books on Roswell, Travis Walton, Betty and Barney Hill, other alien abductions and of course The X-Files. Though fictionalized Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Plan 9 From Outer Space are still my all time favourite movies.
Another one of my all time favourite UFO movies is The Day The Earth Stood Still. I would hope humanity would react differently now.
If you want to entertain yourself with a 1950s B-movie give A Visitor From Space a try.
