Full Description & Details


my is English isn't he best but I'll give it a try.

About 10 years ago I used to walk my neighbours dog, usually on Sundays. I used to walk along the river Weser, mainly because it is far off town and the secludedness of my chosen footpath.

As I walked along, far behind the dog, I felt like not being alone. It was like that feeling as if someone is creeping up and one can feel their presence before being startled.

Well, I looked around me ( horizontally ) but I couldn't see anyone. I surely would have, ever since there are only bushes and shruberry.

For some reason I just looked up in the partly clouded sky, where I spotted a light, maybe as wide as a finger nail. If it weren't that bright, I would have ignored it. But the moment I turned my eyes away, it moved behind the cloud. That I saw out of the corner of my eye. Being perplexed, I looked up again and it wasn't there any more. I kept gazing and it reappeared for a second or 2, only to move behind the cloud again.

I could'nt believe it and whilst talking to myself it came back into view again. This happened 3 or 4 times until it stayed away.

This sighting has shaken me quite a bit, because I realized that this object seem to know that I was looking at it and even more important, it did let me feel/know that it was there.

Then I carried on walking towards the dog which was waiting for me about a hundred metres away.

For fear of ridicule I didn't dare to tell anyone. But I am older now and I treasure this event.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

To my knowledge, no. I have done my " own research" on youtube. There is a video called UFO mix. What I have seen has been caught by someone on a camera. The video is a compilation of partly poor images. Nevertheless, I was lucky, what I have seen is clearly visible in the video.

Witness Background

Work for an employment agency in austria. Have been working in france and the netherlands as well. I have no formal education because a lot of money could be earned when I was younger. Work currently on a building site as a roofer and scaffolder in a helping position. Have learned english and french by attending evening classes.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Before my sighting I simply acknowledged that there is a debate going on about ufo's and the paranormal. All I knew up to then was that ghosts certainly exist and that objects move about without being touched. But this is not something one can talk about to anyone. My personal opinion is that you can tell if someone "knows something" or not.
