UFO Or Bright Lights Spotted And Filmed Over Phoenix Arizona (Pictures/Video Footage)


(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files) Re-posted by Brian.

Brian Vike’s Note: The clips Rob Kritkausky has been kind enough to provide for us all to view are really amazing. I would recommend everyone view the clips either on my site or at Rob's website.

Brian, the last time the president was in Phoenix (August 19, 2004 I believe) we happened to document, what some have described as, one of the more profound UFO videos of all times.


One would assume the arrival of the president would generate a higher level of attention and readiness for anything anomalous that might show up in our airspace.

Needles to say, when the president came to town a few days ago for the debate, we made sure that we kept our eyes open for anything unfamiliar.


On both the nights of October 13th and 14th, we did get some video of what was perceived to be a very large object traveling close to our location and at what time seemed to pass right overhead.



I know you had received a few similar reports, so I wanted to confirm the event by submitting another. I will update you shortly with some more information/footage on this event.

Lights Over Aerosmith Mountain Qualicum/Parksville Vancouver Island British Columbia (Not UFOs - Rescue Taking Place)


Incident happened on Saturday, September 21, 2013

A bunch of sightings reports came through Brian Vike at the Vike Factor over a sighting of lights over Aerosmith Mountain Qualicum/Parksville Vancouver Island British Columbia. Over 40 search and rescue personal are taking place in a rescue on Aerosmith Mountain. A hiker fell and injured himself. Lets hope the hiker is fine.

You can pick up the story from the local TV news channel at – CHEK News and the link is to the video of the story.

http://www.cheknews.ca/index.php?bckey=AQ~~,AAAA4mHNTzE~,ejlzBnGUUKY1gXVPwEwEepl35Y795rND&bclid=975107450001&bctid=2685498133001

The people filing the sightings of this to me, don’t know what they saw. Please keep in mind, I am retired from the UFO field, just wanted to post this story before some UFO sites make it out to be a UFO when they know exactly what the story is about. To many of them out there. I seen a ton of sites run with a story about a UFO filmed over Victoria, actually the headline was “Amazing Video UFO Over Victoria, B.C. Canada”.

I received the story myself and thought wow, pretty cool. Then I did some checking and found that the video was of illumination flares due to another rescue. I had sent an email to the Canadian Coast Guard and made a simple inquiry. The Canadian Coast Guard kindly replied with the answer.

Image Left: Illumination Flare.

I immediately posted the story as to what the whole sighting was about. I even went so far as to notify some folks at their website to let them know what the result of the lights were. They did nothing, I guess having the UFO instead of Flares was a bigger story, know matter the “truth”. One site I informed, I was asked to post it myself onto their website, “but, I would have to sign up to post. Never forgot that, and wasn’t about to sign up.

So many know what some of these objects turn out to be, a simple check on the net would come up with an answer, “for some stories, not all”, some choose to let people think it is a UFO. Weird.

Triangular UFO Observed Over Victoria Texas (Graphic)



(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files) Re-posted by Brian.

Date: January 29, 2008
Time: 8:15 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Backyard of my home.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Triangular.

Full Description of event/sighting: My sister-in-law and I were sitting in my back yard looking at stars and talking. I was facing the back of the house and she was facing the back fence. I saw something moving in the sky and then realized that it had a shape of a triangle.

I was so shocked I didn't say anything at first. Then I noticed pale oval shaped lights (?) or white oval markings down each side of the triangles wings.

The whole UFO seemed camouflaged against the night sky.

If I hadn't been looking up and noticed some movement I might have never seen it.

My sister-in-law saw it just as it had flown over going in a northeasterly direction (toward the fence that she was facing).

I'm a graphic artist for the local newspaper here in Victoria. I immediately went inside and tried to re-create and draw what I had seen in the night sky by using Photoshop.

This object made no sound as it flew over and as soon as it had gone past the fence and over the neighbors house behind mine it disappeared from sight.

UFO Dream - Found Myself And Husband In Their Space Ship (Letter And Diagram)



(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files)

December 26, 1993

Norm and I are walking, talking, it’s a dark clear night. We are walking along the road our house is on in Sutton. We are just about to Stewarts’s house, when I look up and see a huge craft hovering over the trees, it moves, tilts and it’s very low.

It moves out of sight, it comes back, then gone and then back again.

I wonder if it has seen us. When it disappears I beg it to come back, I am very exited.

It lands, a gorgeous girl comes to meet us, she has lovely skin, high cheek bones.

There are others there, some crew, some humans. They seem numb, like zombies. There is a gang plank, like a narrow trough, with white tubes, or pipes or pipes laying in it.

One of the crew, a handsome lad is standing holding one of the tubes. I wonder how I will manage the plank, when suddenly I am sort of drawn up it and am standing in the ship.

The other humans are frightened , Norm too, but no one is saying anything. We sit on a double seat thing that seems to be floating and away we go.

Next thing we are having a tour of the ship, there are male and female crew members working. We are walking in a narrow passage way, with rooms off both sides that are very colorful and bright.

One calls to me, a name, not Mary, says she is “glad to see me again”.

Norm and I are at the end of the line, I turn and he is not there. I start back to find him, then I see him coming around a corner.

He has something in his hand, he looks very old, someone calls him my “father”, they are helping him walk.

They say they will be back. I run back to the girl and hug her and say, “I love you”.

When I get back to my car, I am anxious to see what they left me, I found a book in the trunk with writing on it.

If anyone has witnessed the lights/objects, please send me an email with details of what you saw. Please remember to include the date and time and location. (Town/City – State or Province) and as much detail as possible.

Huge Massive UFO Floated Up The Ottawa River Strathcona Park Ontario (Letter/Diagrams)



(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files)

Dear Brian, Hello from (name removed) who sent me your name and address and indication that you would be interested in my story of craft hovering over the water on evening of March 7, 2001. So I thought, why not. This is what I recall.

I am already outside, down at the water’s edge at Strathcona Park. This park is less than a mile from where I live. In Ottawa, Ontario.


 The water is part of the Ottawa River, which runs right through the city of Ottawa, in the south end where I live.

Anyway, I recall standing at the waters edge in the late evening, it’s already dark out. I don’t recall seeing anyone else near by. From my left, I recall hearing a low rumbling noise, noise came very slowly in my direction, following the course of the water.

I recall seeing a “huge” craft about the size of 1/2 football field approximately in size. It was “floating” about 1,000 feet up in the air, grey in colour, “floating very slowly, almost silent except for this very low rumbling noise.

There appeared to be lots of small windows on the top section. I remember I was feeling very much in awe, and very impressed by the huge, massive size.


 I wasn’t scarred at all. I knew I was safe, I knew I wouldn’t get hurt or harmed in anyway by this craft. In total, I watched it for about 10 minutes. I don’t recall whether it just vanished or kept floating past until it was out of sight or what, but my last recollection is of me looking up into the sky and seeing this huge craft and feeling safe and impressed by the massive size.

If I close my eyes I can still picture the craft in vivid detail in my mind’s eye. I have tried to sketch it for you, but my attempt doesn’t really do the actual craft proper justice.

I did have something else to tell you concerning this craft. A male friend of mine met up with me the following day or so later. Like myself, my friend is also very much interested in UFO material. I told him of my experience of the evening of March 7, 2001. As I was telling him, his very eager manor indicated he had something to tell me.

He had been, about one hour after dark, on the evening of March 7, 2001, on Cummings bridge, which spans the Ottawa river. Now Cummings bridge is about one mile up river., to my left.

He said he was standing on the bridge, used by cars and pedestrians alike. He said he saw lights flashing in the sky directly above the water about a few hundred feet in the air. There was still a lot of ice on the water. These lights were flashing and moving down river very slowly. (they would have been moving in my direction)

My friend watched the lights slowly move down river until they disappeared. He didn’t follow them, he says now he wishes he had. He said he went back to the same spot on the bridge in the morning light and noticed that the ice had been broken up directly down the middle of the river, and as if it had been cut by a knife.

Not unusual in ice breakup with chunks floating willy-hilly about, but a very exact straight cut through the ice straight down the course of the river. Probably the same path the lights had taken.

My friend and I surmise we witnessed the same craft., he from the bridge, me an hour or so later at the water’s edge.

I remember thinking a few days after this sighting, that I was “supposed” to be at the water’s edge that evening. This is something I don’t generally do, go down to the water at night alone, because this is an unlit area.

It is totally dark down there at the water’s edge. I generally only go down there during the day so I can see where I am going and not fall in the water.

My friend did ask me what kind of craft I thought it might be. “Mother ship” immediately came to mind. I had the felling I was “supposed” to witness this craft and also, and this might sound crazy, but it’s how I felt and still do feel.

I have a feeling they knew I was witnessing their craft and it isn’t the last time. This is only the beginning and that’s ok with me.

Also several weeks later I was on my balcony, on the second floor apartment, on a clear blue sky day when I saw for maybe 2 to 3 seconds at eye level, I am standing up, I’m just over 6 feet tall, about half way between my building and Strathcona Park area, a craft heading towards me, yellow in color.




 I have also included a sketch of this craft. This would have been about the first or second week in April. Perhaps a bit earlier.

So there you have it. I do hope this information is useful. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks Brian.

P.S. – Brian, if you do publish this story, please publish it under the name Johanna. Thanks Brian.

If anyone has witnessed the UFO/Object, please send me an email with details of what you saw. Please remember to include the date and time and location. (Town/City – State or Province) and as much detail as possible.

Black Triangle UFO Spotted Outside Of Rabun Alabama (Video Footage/Maps/Photos)



(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files)

Date: April 26, 2004
Time: Approx: 10:00 p.m.

Hey Brian, the triangle video that I sent you yesterday was shot on April 26 2004 on Maytower Rd.(county Rd.96) just outside of Rabun, AL.

The story you sent me the link to entitled "Black Triangle Sighting Outside Of Stockton, Alabama (Diagrams And Maps)" happened in 2002.


As you pointed out the dates are 2 years and 1 day apart. The 2002 sighting, the one we discussed on your web show, also took place on Maytower Road just outside of Stockton, AL. The distance between the two sightings is about 3 miles.Here is a map of the area.

As you can see the two sightings are not far apart. Also note here that the location is within 5 miles of interstate I-65. Something the NIDS Triangle Investigation pointed out was that most triangle sightings happen within 5 miles of interstate highways.


On the night of April 26, 2004 just after 10:00 p.m. I was driving down Maytower Road heading home to Rabun from Stockton. I spotted a light across a field and after watching for a second I knew it was a small prop plane.

It was flying off to my right heading in the same direction as I and over time it got out in front of me due to its faster speed. At about the mid-point of Maytower Rd. I spotted a small red light. This red light crossed right over the top of the prop plane. Very close.


Then I realized it would soon cross the road in front of me. I drove the next 3/4 of a mile at 80mph and managed to get almost up under it when it crossed the road.. I stopped and hung out the driver side window and took the video.

It was about 70 degrees up from my location. Here is a map showing the details.


As stated in the video the craft had no strobe lights or wing tip lights. Only three lights, two red and one white in a triangle formation. The craft made no sound. Its altitude was 1000 to 2000 feet at best guess.

Red/Orange Blazing Object Seen In The Sky Over Paramount California (Picture)



(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files)

Brian Vike's, The Vike Factor Note: There has been a large number of witnesses reporting this similar event taking place over parts of California on the same date and roughly the same time.

The reports are being investigated.

Seeing there have been so many witnesses to this even I am hoping anyone else who has seen this, or other sightings around the state of California please contact me.

Paramount, California Bright Reddish Orange Object

Date: January 1, 2005
Time: Approx: 12:00 a.m.

Dear Brian, Tonight, my boyfriend and I were talking tonight and since we both had access to a computer as we spoke, we were curious if there were any witness accounts of what we both had seen around midnight, new years day.

The report we had found, the only report we found in fact, said it had 20 witness, well, there's at least 20 more to add to it's credit.

My boyfriend told me that night over the phone to look to the north eastern sky because there were 6 bright reddish orange lights in the sky all aligned.

He and his family were looking at it. My little brother and I were on the other side of town viewing this as well. I thought it was especially strange because on the 29th of December, I had already seen a UFO on my way to work. it was shinny and metallic.

It was moving around really weird, up, down, side to side, within and out of the clouds.

My dad and I saw it. Anyways, back to the new years sighting, I didn't see it, but my bf saw that one was dropping lights down, like little letting go of little pods.

On Sunday, my older brother saw it along with his best friend, his best friend's girlfriend, and the girlfriend's family which totaled ten.

For the time after that, my boyfriend and I have been trying to find out what that was that we saw. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.


Thank you to the witness and the photos.

If anyone has witnessed the UFO/Object, please send me an email with details of what you saw. Please remember to include the date and time and location. (Town/City – State or Province) and as much detail as possible.

Triangular UFO Spotted In The Night Sky Over Ocala Florida (Excellent Graphic)



(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files) Re-posted by Brian.

Date: May 27, 2008
Time: Evening.

Hello, I had seen some remarkable objects in the sky last night and I found your site while trying to research what I saw. Here's what happened.

I live in Ocala, Florida which is about an hour and a half from Orlando. I was driving home from work last night when I saw a large flashing object flashing white light brighter than anything I've ever seen before. It was in the middle of my view- in plain sight.


I had originally thought it was a cell phone tower but it was so bright it was illuminating the sky around it. I live in a rural town so its very dark at night and you can see the stars almost perfect. In the distance towards this object was also 2 separate red pulsating objects emitting what looked like red and green lights back and forth at each other.

As I got closer to my home, I was able to make out that the first large bright object was a triangle craft. By the time I had got home and out of my car I had counted 3 separate red UFOs and what I thought could have been two more, but were much higher but flashing red, blue, and pulsating green (as they remained stationary but were revolving).

The triangular craft was a small distance away from the red UFOs and they acted almost as if they didn't notice each other. The triangle craft was flying in circles and very low.

Within seconds of getting out of my car the triangle craft had flown off but the red UFOs began to ascend high into the sky but not to the point as to where I was unable to see the pulsating lights still.


The whole thing is- there was one jet plane a good distance away from all these objects, heading towards the Orlando airport so I was able to compare the jet plane to these objects. These were no plane, nor anything I've ever seen in my life. I attempted to take a few pictures but it was far too dark. I did however draw a diagram of what I saw. I am not the only witness to what I saw as well.

Florida is a UFO hot spot and the triangular craft seems to be seen by plenty of other people as well. I was thinking it was along the lines of military but the red UFOs I saw gave off an eerie feeling that made me believe they were something else.

Thank you to the witness for their report and excellent graphic.

UFO Filmed Over Niagara Falls ? (Pictures)



(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files) Re-posted by Brian.

The person who took this photo at Niagara Falls does not believe he captured anything, basically because in two subsequent photos taken right after this image, there's nothing there.

However, there is enough data present on this high resolution image to examine which suggests something was indeed there... at the least for that moment when this picture was snapped.


In the photo a distant monument of recognizable shape is visible giving us an excellent item to zoom in on with the same factor as we do the UFO.

This allows for a unique comparison of clarity in this high resolution digital image to determine how much distortion is taking place with the UFO in the image.


It would appear that the spire-like monument in the distance is considerably farther away than the UFO is from the photographer, else the UFO is gargantuan, which is unlikely.

This is clearly not a bird or a plane and has a distinct disc shape with corresponding shadow and highlight with the rest of the photo. There is no evidence of digital tampering whatsoever. There also appears to be little or no motion distortion.


Note: Quite a few people have emailed to suggest that what the photographer caught was a blimp.

Unfortunately, that can't be as we have two subsequent shots taken just seconds after this one and there is no object visible at all. It would take a blimp some time to cruise out of sight.

A Bell Shaped UFO And Glowing White Being (Abduction Experience)



(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files) Re-posted by Brian.

A few weeks ago I was having trouble falling asleep (again) and my thoughts kept returning to the experience of May 1984 in Kirkland, WA concerning the ball of white light. I managed to break through the fear barrier and move forward a little in recalling what happened after getting inside the bell-shaped craft. Then I hit another sticking point, where in the experience I was taken into a room at the end of a long tunnel.

Just last night as I was trying to drop off to sleep, images of the inside of this room and what happened there sort of bubbled up from what I have recently come to call my 'memory museum'. I picture this as the basement of a museum -- the subconscious -- where problematic artifacts (memories) are hidden away from view. What follows is an account of the rest of the May 1984 experience, which I have related as honestly and accurately as possible.

For years I had racked my brains trying to recall if there was more to this than just a transient, weird electrical phenomenon. At this point I'm wondering if the sizzling ball of light might have just been a ruse to get me outside.

When I first woke up at the beginning of this event there was also a bright light shining from outside, through the closed curtains in my bedroom. This may have been a separate light used to attract my attention and make me believe that the building was on fire.

The neighboring house where the 'electrical malfunction' was taking place was the residence of an elderly lady who I privately called the 'crazy lady'. This refers to an elderly woman, about 75 years old at the time who lived alone in a small cottage next to the 5-plex that I was living in at the time.

Previous to this event, during the late Fall, I recall driving home one night near midnight and seeing the 'crazy lady' sweeping leaves off the sidewalk in front of her house. I suppose there was just barely enough light for her to see, but it struck me as somewhat odd for an elderly lady to be doing yard work in the moonlight.



Back to the incident of the hissing ball of light: I was trying to look over the top of the fence to determine what the heck was going on. The garbage dumpster was located at this corner of the apartment building, and I pulled out some boxes to stand on to get a better view.

I was planning to scramble over the fence to alert the 'crazy lady' about a fire in her backyard. Just as I was ready to make my leap I heard a voice saying something like "get away from the fence!" Well, this sure surprised me, and I reflexively obeyed, looking around for the person who had made this command.

Nobody was in sight. Next I heard -- I suppose mentally -- less distinct but still commanding demands for me to move over to the edge of the parking lot. Probably from a mix of curiosity and training to follow orders, I ventured over to the point where the pavement adjoined the weedy corner of the lot. This was when I saw the bell-shaped object with the two 'chubby children' standing near it, nestled in the brambles.

As you may recall from my previous email, I ended up inside this small, bell-shaped 'craft' and felt a sickening effect of falling. It seemed like I was falling back-first. Imagine standing with your rear facing the edge of a cliff and then falling over, going down, down, down, totally out of control, just plummeting like a rock. And as recounted earlier, I may have blacked out during this descent-like phase because the next memory I have is of standing up, sort of teetering, and seeing about a half-dozen of the dwarves doing something around me.

At this point I seem to have gathered my wits sufficiently to be able to complain about my bare feet. They had been cut a little in climbing down through the brambles, and I was really upset about this. The scrapes were minor but they seemed to be the point were my rational mind could focus its alarm, fear and anger about being whisked away by strange beings. The little chubbies were putting some kind of salve on my feet and then fitted a pair of their boots on me, sans socks. These didn't fit very well but under the circumstances were better than walking around barefooted and accomplished the job, at least temporarily, of getting me to shut up.

I was struggling to figure out where I was. The room I was in was like a cavern, seemingly carved out of solid rock, and dimly illuminated by a few wall lights. Very approximately it was in the range of some 12m to 15m in span, with a tall, rounded ceiling and was connected to a large, shadowy 'tunnel' leading one direction and a very brightly lit opening leading to the opposite way. The surfaces of the walls of this cavernous space were lumpy but also shiny. The air was warm and somewhat humid. Maybe the walls were wet? Either that or just smoothed or polished -- vitrified?-- somehow.

There were small gauge rail tracks on the floor. This worried me because at the time I was standing near some and in my nerve-racked condition was concerned about a train coming by. These tracks curved around the space I was now in, leading towards the 'tunnel' and out towards the doorway to the bright light at the other end.

At the dark 'tunnel' end it was just possible to see a row of about a dozen or so of the small, bell-shaped craft'. These appeared a rusty, brown-black in exterior color. Right next to these was a row of what clearly looked to me like small helicopters. Each row of these objects was positioned on the tracks. It looked as though they could be moved along the tracks.

The overall logistics of this was made a little clearer when I paid attention to a large adjoining niche on the far wall of the cavern I was in. A blue-white light that seemed to extend upwards as a shaft illuminated this space. Was this how I was brought 'down' to here? Was this shaft the means by which the helicopters and bell-craft came and went?

While attempting to make some sense of all of this, I saw a small train of golf cart-like carriages entering the cavern I was in, riding along the tracks in the floor. Each cart had two seats. I was placed in one of these on the left side with a dwarf seated next to me on the right. The seats were a little too small for my body, so I had to hold on so as not to fall out. A pair of dark-tinted goggles was handed to me by a dwarf and by gestures I was instructed to put them on. Our small open train was headed to the brightly-lit opening leading out of the 'arrival' room, and I figured that the eye protection had something to do with the fiercely bright light we were apparently going to enter.

Our train left the 'arrival' room and was now in this incredibly bright, huge cavernous space. Even with the tinted goggles on the light was very bright. Maybe the chubby next to me read my thoughts because when I was wondering what the heck this was about I mentally heard the word 'crucible'. The most intense part of this light seemed to be in a tunnel leading perpendicularly away from us. In hindsight, I wonder if there was some kind of tunnel boring process being used.

We continued on through the bright cavern and then entered a tunnel cut roughly into the stone. The bore of the tunnel was rectangular, very approximately about 6m wide and 3m high. At first the light of the bright cavern lit up the passage but this eventually faded away into darkness. I took off my goggles in order to see but could only just make out the dark, rough texture of the walls of our route. This tunnel seemed to go on forever. My very rough estimate is that we were traveling about 20 km/h for at least five minutes (it seemed like more) making this section about 1.6 km long.

Nearing the end of this stretch of tunnel there was a low level of light. This was enough for me to see that the surfaces of the walls in this area had been smoothed down flat, contrasting with the roughly cut stone in the preceding stretch of passageway. Eventually we reached a 'T' intersection where there were some wall lights (the source of the light) and apparently some natural light (?) from a shaft on the left side of the 'T'. Our train stopped here.

After adjusting my eyes a little I determined that there was a smooth sheet of water pouring down this shaft. This brought in fresh, cool air and was a small relief from the ordeal of the previous long ride. A tunnel on the right side of the 'T' continued on into the darkness - for how long? The walls here were polished and dramatically showed off the grains and patterns in the stone. I thought I got a mental impression from one of the dwarves stating that this was the 'old area'.

We climbed out of the open cars and now stood at the central part of this intersection. Doors were set into a recess in the rock with the wall lights positioned on either side of this access point, giving off a soft glow. I gazed at the continuing tunnel at the right of the T intersection and saw that the rail tracks continued on in that direction.

I suddenly felt a tsunami wave of panic realizing that this tunnel went down even deeper into the rock. Apparently the team of about a half dozen dwarves sensed my panic and stood around me, forming a ring, probably with the intention of preventing me from running away.

My prior recollection was that these stout people had a skin color of black maybe with a slight blue tint, but at this point they began to glow a very bright blue! It was as though they were putting on a display of some kind, like grotesque, blue lawn ornaments. This combined with the surreal events that led up to this point was too much for my poor brain to handle.

I was way over my 'psychological red line' and now stood in a near state of paralysis - my dwarf-booted feet seemingly glued to the floor - unable to budge. But the circle of dwarves around me began to move towards the door, which was now open, giving me no choice but to be herded into the chamber.

This chamber was also poorly illuminated, with the main source of light coming from a somewhat tall (about 2m?), standing figure wearing a white robe. It was glowing like the dwarves but gave off white light rather than blue. This was sufficient for me to see that the room I was now in was a rectangular, smooth-walled rock chamber about 6m by 12m with a ceiling height of maybe some 3m. There was a table in the center of the room that looked like it had been carved intact out of the same rock as the walls. I was alone with this standing figure, the dwarves having left.

The figure commanded my attention mainly because it was the only thing in the room besides the table. It seemed as though it was floating just a little above the floor. Its robe-covered shape was in general human-like, with a head, arms, torso and legs but there were no discernable facial features on its light bulb-shaped head that I could make out. Standing motionless, this glowing 'alien' didn't display any signs of being alive. (In hindsight, I think that it was simply a model placed in the room, a sort of dummy ET.)

For a few moments I stared at the robed figure. Then by some means I received instructions to lie down on the table. Feeling rather intimidated by the proximity of a 2m tall glowing ET, I complied. Anyway, the doors to the chamber had been closed so I had nowhere to run or to hide.

My body now on the table, my awareness seems to have relocated somewhere up near the ceiling a few meters away. At this stage I didn't have any feeling of hot, cold, comfort or discomfort, or for that matter stress or anxiety. I was more like a detached observer looking down at my body and the nearby glowing white figure. From this new perspective I could also see that there was a row of what looked like windows at the top of one of the walls. I had the unpleasant sensation that there were people on the other side of the windows watching.

What followed was, to the best of my understanding, a search through my mind. I could sense an entrance and then navigation through my memories. At first it was as though a quick but thorough scan of my life, from beginning to end, was being conducted. This lasted a short time followed by more detailed scanning of certain sections of my memory that had apparently been determined to be significant. The memories along with the physical sensations and emotional responses associated with them were being restimulated.

From my detached vantage point I wondered, why? A mental message came in reply, "for replicates". The impression I had was that physical and emotional stimuli, extracted from my life experiences, was being archived. It would subsequently be part of a library, available for use in replicas of human beings.

I thought that the general idea involved -- correct or not -- was that 'fake' humans were being programmed with memory segments mined from 'real' humans so that they could function reasonably well in a human social environment. It also seemed to be the case that performing the data extraction in such an isolated location was analogous to making studio music recordings in an insulated, controlled environment, free from extraneous noise.

The next memory I have of this experience is of stumbling back to the front door of my apartment. I was exhausted and just wanted to crawl into bed and go to sleep. In the morning I woke up feeling agitated. I remembered the sizzling white ball of light, but at that time had no recollection of the other parts of the experience other than a vague thought that I had seen an old, rusty car down in the weed infested part of the yard.

Something wasn't quite right, I felt, and I went over to the neighbor's yard to the west of me and tried to determine if they might have seen anything unusual that night. Their bedroom windows faced the weedy area and I was concerned that they might have seen something. It was a strange thought with mixed emotions. I felt nervous and almost guilty about something they might have gotten a glimpse of, but I couldn't remember what it might have been!

As a postscript, it might be worth mentioning that about ten years after this experience (1995 as I recall) I felt adventurous enough to have a 'soul retrieval' session. I had read a book about this subject and thought it would be interesting to give it a try. The result of the session was that three pieces of my 'soul' were retrieved. Nina, the lady who did the shamanic journey work, was particularly troubled by what she saw happen to me in one of the soul-thefts.

This incident involved my having been taken to a location deep underground, being placed on a table in a dark room carved into rock and having an entity of some kind do something bad to me. At the time of the session, this didn't have any particular meaning to me other than just causing a really creepy feeling. In retrospect its interesting that what Nina described matches what I have just recently been able to recall about this 1984 abduction experience.

Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
