One Strange Night
It was an evening just like any other we were invited to a party at Gerty’s bosses house in the village of Oeffelt, close to the border with Germany, around forty kilometers from our house in Boekel. It was in 1996 in the late winter early spring on a Saturday when We drove to Lou Brull’s farmhouse, Lou is Gerty’s boss it was the night that Holland had to play England in the European championships and when we arrived the were all watching the game, So we joined in. It was a great game except the end outcome was a disappointment Holland had lost on penalties and the European championships were over. Loe always has excellent party’s This time the theme was bringing three presents per couple and we were to play games in the garden. For example shooting at a target at twenty paces with a peletgun and then recording the hits, add up the points. Then we could pick out what presents we would like too win winner would have first pick. Gerty picked three lovely miniature painting and I chose a giant teddy bear for Tammy. It was around twelve o’clock when Gerty and I decided to leave. We were the first to leave. I had to work the next day and I don’t like to go to bed late on work nights. We thanked our host and walked outside immediately I saw a disk like object with many lights circling above the farm house. It was nothing that I’ve ever seen before I said to Gerty hey look at that, Gerty thought that it is proubly from the highway. Imagine if you will total darkness on an old farm house road, no houses just a country road the highway was four or five kilometers away but I thought she could be right because she is almost always right. We stepped inside the car and drove west towards a major road. Gerty said that the object was flying adjacent to the car on the passengers side. I looked and saw it, turned left and the object turned with us when I speeded up the object speeded up as well, turned right and it proceeded to follow. It was kind of strange and I started teasing Gerty by humming the twilight zone song and Gerty started to laugh. We drove another ten kilometers and this object kept the same distance from the car.
I guess I got brave, our stupid, and stopped the car, got out to take a better look at the object. It was spinning in a slow way counterclockwise and then stopped and started turning clockwise towards us. To get an approximation on the size of it I would have to know how high that he was flying, what I do know for sure is that it was close and large the size of a couple of football fields. It made no sound. It flew over the car a couple of times. After a few minutes I got back inside the car. Trying not to alarm Gerty I keep my thoughts to myself. I drove on turning left on the middle peel road We thought that we had lost him but that illusion was short lived, because one minute later it was back on the passengers side of the car. When we reached Boekel we were driving under a lot of trees so we couldn’t see anything following us. Gerty said drive fast and hide the car under the carport and I did we got out of the car and ran inside the house. When I told the baby sitter she said “ it was a shame that she couldn’t have seen it”. Me being of the nosey types had to look outside and to my horror it was hovering above the neighbors house. But now it was very close and I could see from the lights that he was slanting down in my direction, looking at me. I could see this because when this object was following us home we saw the whole underside with all the lights turning clockwise or counterclockwise now I could only see a row of lights. I called for the baby sitter and my wife to come outside, but when they did the thing took off like a rocket. Note that this was instantaneous and did not make the slightest noise or wind like a helicopter would do. Being a prior air force sergeant I know what the military has. When the two ladies went back inside a minute later it came back. And I called the ladies back. This time the object stayed and the baby sitter turned a little shade of white and said that she was going home because “this is scary” then she departed for her house. Just them Jan Van Lankveld. my neighbor, was returning home from a party. Walked over to me and the object took off again. When I told Jan of our “strange night” He laughed and I told him to stay put, it will come back, just then it returned and Jan was surprised He had never seen anything like this and a couple of minutes later it took off and we went back inside. While undressing I asked my wife what she thought of all this she said that you should not think about it because it was too scary. And we talked about things and one thing that we are sure of is that we were followed by something that is not from this world and that we are not alone in our universe. The next day we heard from the babysitter that she drove under the object while driving home. After this I look often to the stars and wonder how many more planets there are with intelligent life and if there is someone on another planet also looking into the heavens wondering the same thing.
This looks a little like the object.
In the week of our sighting a news report was sent out that there were alot of sightings in a few places close to our house
