This week I sat down with a middle aged American man, David (as we shall refer to him).
With the hopes of remaining anonymous, silent and away from any cameras there is a clear concern that his story cannot be verified publicly. However, if you posses an open mind and trust the guy as much as I did then you may enjoy what he had for me.
It all took place on July 19th 1984 during the peak of activity in the Hudson Valley. The sighting involved a Close Encounter, Missing time and abduction.
If this was a real experience then the implications are fantastic. In all the cases that I chose to study all the witnesses related the truth, or what they thought was the truth.
There is no doubt in my mind that their stories are not hoaxes since none would have anything to gain by going public with their experiences.
David is a thirty two year old computer programmer for a major scientific-engineering corporation that helped design the major components for the NASA Hubble space telescope.
On July 19th 1984, at about ten-thirty pm, David was leaving work and heading west on Highway I-84. As he approached the Taconic Parkway ramp in Duchess county New York he noticed a very bright almost circular object off to the north.
The object seemed to be just sitting there in the sky and the lights were very bright white. As he watched the object it began to move and it was at that time he noticed a dark mass behind it which blocked out the brighter light-polluted night sky.
He continued to drive on 84 and soon lost sight of the object. He then brushed the entire incident off his mind and thought “Oh, it must have been those guys from Stormville flying those planes faking a UFO”
He then drove on listening to his radio. He turned off the route 52 exit near Stormville, New York and began traveling north.
The time now was close to eleven PM and the roads were quite desolate. He came to a clearing where there was a large field and noticed a large dark mass sitting in the field about 200 yards from the road.
At first he thought that it was a new home, but then he knew there was no house there since he went this way just last night and the field was empty. As a matter of fact David drove this way home and passed the field every night and never saw a house there. David slowed down the car “This thing was huge and dark”, he said.
The strange thing was it was almost the same shape as a big barn, but it seemed more tapered toward the sides and very smooth.
As he watched, the dark object rose into the air without a sound. This really upset David since he was the only car on the road.
The object then rose higher and higher. All that David could see was the dark mass slowly rising into the air. It was now about twice as high as the trees and it moved slowly towards David who was still in the car. David’s radio then started to sound “funny” he said that the music on the radio sounded like a tape recorder with very low batteries.
David put the car into gear and sped away from the object. His heart was racing as he drove up the road at about fifty miles an hour. David then lost sight of the object and continued to drive at a slower rate of speed.
After several minutes he notices d a glow up ahead over a hill. As he approached the crest of the hill there the object was!
It was about 300 feet above the trees and was all lit up with rows of white and yellow lights. He then stopped his car and turned off the engine and the lights. He was hoping that whoever was in the thing would not see him.
The object then turned off its lights and he could see this huge dark mass slowly drifting toward him. The object passed right over his car, he could now see its shape, and it was triangular. David told me “I don’t want to make light of this, but the ship looked like one of the destroyers in Star Wars”
The underside was the same shape, although I did not see the top. The object passed over David, as he looked up he saw circular areas underneath the UFO. These circular areas seemed to be like tunnels leading into the object. Inside these circular tunnels there was a white flashing, similar to the flashing of a white strobe light (we had several reports of this white flashing effect from past CE cases in the Hudson Valley, also the circular areas have been reported numerous times before).
David told me there was no sound. He estimated its size to be at least 300 feet from end to end. Then something strange took place. The last thing David remembers is watching it go over his car; he did not see it leave.
The next thing he knows he is at the bottom of the hill 600 feet from the position he was when the UFO passed over his parked car. The object itself was gone. He was not sure what time it was when he watched the object passed over his car, but he feels it was most likely about eleven-thirty PM.
The time was now twelve -fifteen. He started his drive home upset and with a very stiff neck. When he arrived home he told his wife about his sighting. She was worried to begin with since he was almost an hour late.
That night David woke up yelling in the night “saying get away from me!” His wife said that the nightmares continued for a while at least twice a week.
David told to me that the he was not sure of what the nightmare was, but he knew something was after him. As time went on David was afraid to drive at night alone.
He even had to insist to his boss not to put him on the evening or night shift at his job. Finally David wanted to find out more since the experience of the UFO and the fearful dreams tormented him. It wasn’t until 2011 that David contacted me and told me his story.
David had seen Budd Hopkins (author of the book Intruders) on a number of shows and asked me if would be possible for him to be hypnotized. Hearing Budd on TV talk about the abductions made him fearful and he wanted to make sure that this did not happen to him. I arranged to have David meet with a certified psychologist that I occasionally use to perform hypnosis.
The following is a brief transcript of David’s encounter under hypnosis.
He first associated seeing the object on 84 and then the object in the field and then in the sky over the hill, it is then that his voice becomes so fearful.
David “I see it now it’s that thing! It’s coming in my direction! I am going to turn off my car lights. Maybe then won’t see me and go away. It’s huge……Oh my God what is it! There’s someone standing in the road he is now walking toward the car. Who are you! He’s saying something to me “don’t be fearful we need you…you have been selected”. Selected for what, get away! I feel strange like I am floating in the air, it’s all dark. I am now on this table and these guys are all around me, six of them. Two are at my head and two on the sides (two on each side). My legs and arms are like dead weights I can’t move them.”
(David is then asked to describe them)
David “These guys are small, large heads with round eyes, the eyes are all black I can see no pupils in them, they remind me of shark’s eyes. They are dressed in some type of black and white skin type suits. I can’t see their hands. The one at my head is moving some type of device that looks like a portable car vacuum cleaner up and down the left side of my head. It vibrates my entire head; it feels like a drill going through my head… STOP! It hurts… He tells me that they are looking for something and found it. I now can feel my legs and arms they are allowing me to get up. They are very small only up to the bottom part of my chest…the others are now over some type of panel. Two of them are leading me by the arms. I asked them where they were from. The one on my right leading said “We are from here” I didn’t understand the answer. I asked him if they planned to let me go. He replied “Yes but we will see you again” He told me that they need us because they have trouble living in our world. He said they come from a place which is very ugly when compared to our world and they would rather live here, but can’t. I told him that I would remember and tell everyone about this. He said I would remember in time but there are forces in your own which will stop you from telling anyone about this experience?”
David then claims to have found himself back in the car.
David said that he now recalls every aspect of the experience. It was a very real experience to him.
Roughly 5000 police reports relating to UFO’s were recorded from 1982 to 1986
