A retired engineer takes a midnight walk to check his mailbox. Like most retirees, he is a regimented individual who typically checks his mail early in the afternoon, shortly after it is delivered. This allows him to respond to anything that might irk him, such as an erroneous bill or a jury summons. During his nighttime sojourn to the end of his driveway and back, he has the irresistible urge to look at the sky. Not just any part of the sky, but the very portion of sky which in seconds reveals a strange light. He watches as this strange light approaches his location and transforms into a large dark triangle shape with lights on each tip, seeming to lower in altitude as it approaches to just a hundred feet over his head.
The retiree moves to the side of his house for a better look. He has resided in this house for many years and is aware that the sky is not visible from where he has now chosen to stand. Why choose this location to try to spy a better look?
At the same moment across the street, his neighbor comes out to smoke a cigarette and observes the strange shape drawing near. Despite being within yards of the retiree, he never notices him. Seemingly seconds later, he has completely smoked the entire cigarette, a practice that normally takes him ten to fifteen minutes. At this point, the craft is no longer visible and he walks back into the house, thinking nothing more about it until the next morning. Why did the neighbor come out at the exact time the craft was appearing overhead? With an unobstructed view, why not notice the retiree standing literally yards from him?
The last thing the retiree remembers before walking back into the house is watching the dark shape move off in the direction of the rear of the house. If interested in a better look, why does he not move to the rear of the house to watch the shape depart?
What happened in the amount of time that the neighbor saw the craft and finished his cigarette? What could he have seen had he not blacked out? Why did he assume nothing had happened out of the ordinary and continue with his normal nighttime activities?
There seems to be a recurring theme in many unidentified aerial phenomenon, or UFO sightings. Unaware of why, a man is suddenly compelled to go to a seemingly random location. This might be in the form of an urge to go outside into the open, or to drive themselves into a desolate area, only to find themselves witness to an unbelievable, often earth-shattering event.
