Popcorn folks... just to be doing something.

Mainly weird claims of light phenomena.

Let's try something almost familiar to start:

1986: Icelandic Glacier. A group of twelve explorer-climbers had succeeded in climbing one of the glaciers and began their descent. They came to a sharp turn in the ice wall and were confronted by a "globe of multicolored light blocking the trail in front of them." Momentarily non-plussed, they conversed briefly, decided that they were not out of their minds, and began to approach the 30' diameter BOL.

This BOL seemed composed of every conceivable visual color, all of which were brilliant and "clear". As the group walked through this BOL, they could see the light colors all around them, and felt extremely calm. As they emerged, and this is perhaps the weirdest part of this, it was as if the light "clung" to their bodies for awhile, and they each had their own aura.

They turned and walked again through the BOL; some a number of times. Fascinating as this was, they knew that they had to complete their descent, and walked away. Turning, they saw the BOL shimmer, and then completely disappear --- ONLY THEN DID THEIR "AURAS" DISAPPEAR AS WELL!.

Hmmmm.... maybe that wasn't as "familiar" as I thought.

Well... try again.

Undated, possibly c.2000, Cleethorpes near Grimsby, UK. A husband and wife were at home, he gazing out the window, while she was on the phone. He spotted a ball of light [this was a small red one, not like my picture above --- sorry, you'll have to adjust] hurtling towards the house, and shouted to his wife to look out. She turned, dropping the phone, in time to see the BOL pass through the window and hit her husband right in the chest. BUT IT PASSED RIGHT THROUGH.

The wife ran over to her husband, who was apparently unaffected by the encounter. She raised up his shirt, and there was no evidence of the passage at all. The only resultant of the event was that it scared the heck out of them.

I view this as fair play. We walk through one BOL, so a BOL walks through us. Perfect symmetry.

Yep. That's my story and I'm sticking with it all the way Out Proctor.

OK. Let's see if we can find something more "reasonable".

2003, Richmond Park, Surrey {I think}, UK. Two {young?} males were walking in this park, when they saw a mass of light "pouring" itself over a wall. {Oh boy, here we go}. As it poured itself out, it constituted itself as a BOL and began bouncing along. It struck a tree, against which it appeared to stop as if "rubbing itself" against it [perhaps the paranormal BOL equivalent of a grizzly  bear]. It then bounced onto the road, crossing in front of a car, the driver of which also saw the thing. It went on and disappeared.

Then, as the two males continued to look in the area where the BOL had disappeared, from that position out stepped an creature looking like a small boy with an unusually large head. One dramatic flash later and the creature was also gone. One of the witnesses has become so interested in this that he set up a website [I never visited it] to inquire if any others had seen things like this, or other oddities in that park.

Now what have we? One BOL which we walk through; one BOL which walks through us; and one BOL out of which walks its own "inhabitant". The only case left is the one with no BOL at all and ourselves walking all over the place.

Well, we've plenty of that.

1950: Nairobi, Kenya. An older lady had a stroke which resulted in some paralysis. Her son was an executive with East African Railways and a no-nonsense pragmatic sort of fellow. Still, this was his Mom, and he would like to do something for her. Working for the railway administration was a South African who had gained reputation as a faith-healer. The railway executive reached out.

The purported faith-healer arrived at the man's house and went to meet with the older lady and her son and daughter-in-law. He seemed to go into some sort of trance as he laid hands upon the older lady, and began to vocalize. The man in this story was an avid astronomer with a dedicated outbuilding containing a good telescope. In the vocalization, the healer told the executive to go to his telescope and look at a certain area of the sky.

Out went the executive to look. There, where nothing belonged, were three "glowing objects". They then began to move and flew in formation across the sky. The man was flummoxed by all this. When he returned inside the main house, the healer broke from his trance, and the old lady sat up free of her paralysis. A reporter for the Daily Express in Nairobi interviewed the witnesses and wrote up the story. The editor refused to print it.

This tale is one of the messiest I've read in terms of grappling with hypotheses. What sort of a thing could have gone on here to incorporate the total elements? The one thing that we CAN be sure of is that the paper refused to print their reporter's interviews.

Let's try Africa again: 1970, Swakopmund, Namidia. {Namidian Desert}. Several mining engineers and other mining employees and their families were having a barbecue at their base camp in the desert. There were about 25-30 people there. It was well past sundown and the desert was pitch black and silent. The camp was located between mountain ridges on both sides which narrowed towards a river bed and and small gap leading out of the valley.

As the group enjoyed the last of the meal and star-gazing, a short distance down this valley erupted a wall of flame. This wall was about 80 feet high {an "eight story building"} and just like real fire, including palpable intense heat. The wall was complete in the sense that there were no gaps, like a theatre curtain made of flame. It even smelled like fireplace flame.

Panic broke out immediately and lasted through a few minutes, whereupon the phenomenon suddenly just switched off. The men all grabbed their guns and flashlights and went to the area where the fire wall seemed to have been. They found nothing. At dawn the next day, everyone went out, and again found no sign of the event --- even to lack of any grass scorching or sand discoloration.

And just to make this weirder if possible: shortly very small doll-like footprints were found near the camp's toolshed, though no such doll was around to create the impressions. Cats got into the act by behaving like weirdoes and demanding lots of lap-time and holding.

.... just another night in Namibia.


This site's acting up right now [won't load simple images], so I bail out at this moment. I have a handful more of these sorts of rare whackinesses, which I'll attempt to get to another day.

Happy Holidays and safe travel folks.

.... you don't think that "Friday the 13th" has anything to do with this do you?
