I heard a really strange story last night. In broad daylight about 30 years ago, in Woodland, California, a woman and her 10 year old daughter were abducted from a supermarket parking lot by a UFO that swooped straight down then stopped above them. The next thing they knew they were home and had several hours missing time. They both remember seeing the ship above them.
Has anyone ever heard of something like this?
Someone different told me a story of seeing a giant rat, about three feet high in Woodland several years ago. I had a discussion about people’s brains not being able to handle seeing aliens, so they turn it into something more familiar, like a giant rat.
Anyone from the Sacramento or Woodland areas have any more to add?
As far as UFOs that swoop low in broad daylight, I did find something about this happening in California with dumbbell shaped UFOs.
“Another curious aspect of the flying dumbbells is that they seem quite unconcerned with stealth. They swoop down low in broad daylight and display bright lights when flying at night.”
… Equally leisurely was the “orange thing shaped like a fat dumbbell” spotted by a trio of witnesses in Oceanside, California, one March afternoon in 2006. Moving at around 20 mph, it wobbled overhead “with a strange oscillating motion,” and shone a pulsing strobe light down at the ground as it sailed out of sight.
Another slow-moving dumbbell was seen in Modesto, California by R. David Anderson in May 2004. He reported that it “changed directions twice, turning on a dime” – presumably ruling out the possibility that it might have been a balloon.
A pair of witnesses in Palo Alto had an unusually close glimpse of a flying barbell while relaxing on a flat rooftop one October afternoon in 1994. It consisted of a 4-foot-wide central ‘rod’ with a pair of “perfect silver balls, approximately 8 inches in diameter” at the extremities.
The object hovered only feet away from the startled witnesses, then turned with “absolute control and precision” and sped away into the distance. – wunderkabinett
