Pacifica, California Sighting And Possible Encounter

I wanted to tell you about this thing that occurred to me back in 1995 when I was living in Pacifica Ca., which is about 15 minutes South of San Francisco. I was working Midnight shifts in the City then and it was my habit to take my dog out after I woke up for our 3 mile walk around the hills there. So I go out with the dog and as I began walking down the street (this was about 2 hours before sundown) I see this light hanging above the mountains East of me. There is a mountain range that runs North to South, it starts just south of San Francisco and runs about 60-70 miles south almost to San Jose. At its highest point its maybe 1500 ft., but I'm not sure of the height. The mountains and the object was approx. 1 perhaps 2 miles from me. Well, hanging right above the ridge line and approx 20 degrees above it, and stationary, is this light about the size of perhaps Venus, when its closest to the earth. So I'm watching this thing and I notice right away that its blinking.

Although it was blinking like a large strobe on say perhaps a Jet Airliner, the blinks were not anything like that on a plane. The only way I could describe it is like a Morse Code. So I continue to walk and it continues to hang there blinking, or "coding" Now, I'm thinking to myself that I have "never" ever seen anything like this before. So I'm to the point where I'm looking for someone on the street to stop so I could ask them "are you seeing the same thing I'm seeing?" The walk normally takes me about 45 minutes and on the way I stop at this baseball field adjacent the Local High School, and continue to watch this thing. I would say that by then approx. 30 minutes have gone by. I'm thinking to myself that I wish I knew Morse Code because this has got to be what its doing. Again I'm looking around for someone to point this thing out to but there is no one.

So I continue to watch, and as I'm watching it, it slowly begins to drift North-East, still blinking. Approx 20 seconds later it was lost to sight apparently drifting N-E, on the other side of the ridge and out of sight. So I walk the dog home and I'm thinking "who can I call". I have cop friends, but I'm NOT going to call them, they will think I'm crazy. So I forget about it. On this particular night I was off work and I decide I'm going to take a nap (since your body never really gets used to working the Mid-night shifts). I believe it was around 10:00 PM that I fell asleep.

The next thing I know, I'm aware that I'm standing in my kitchen in front of the sink, I remember looking down at my arms and wondering what the heck was going on. I also remember thinking "this cant be a dream its too real" Now I have had a couple of "lucid dreams" but this was far more "real". The only way I can describe it is like I was in some sort of altered state. So I'm standing there and from where I am, I'm now looking out through the living room area and into the backyard area. Now, there is a sliding glass door that leads into the backyard (this is a townhouse-corner unit) and above the doors are windows that extend up about 20 feet (cathedral windows I believe they call it) to the ceiling, so these are really high windows. As I'm looking toward the window I become aware of this thing coming straight down into view and beginning to land in the backyard. The object was round, lit up like a Christmas Tree and perhaps 10 feet across. It had many different colored lights on it. It was coming down and was only maybe 9-10 feet away from the window, (this is a small backyard area)

At that point this "lucid dream" ends. The next thing I know, I'm standing in the middle of my bedroom, (directly down the hall from the kitchen), and I'm fully conscious. As I'm standing there wondering what the heck was going on. I become aware of this unbelievably overwhelming feeling of fear that has overcome me, and this was like "nothing" I have ever experienced before. I've been involved in traumatic life and death situations in my job that were quite frightening, but its was absolutely nothing like this fear that had enveloped me. The only thing I could think of was to recite a prayer. I remember thinking if I can't get rid of this feeling I was going to have a heart attack, my heart felt like it was going to jump out of my chest. I thought for a second " I might die from this!!! So I start saying this prayer, don't ask me which one cause I don't remember, but I repeat it over and over again, I don't know how many times. Then I begin to feel the fear leave my body like someone turned on a faucet. Once the feeling was tolerable I got into bed and went straight to sleep and didn't rise till the morning. Don't ask me how I managed that, because I don't know.

So, one thing I know about this incident: that thing in the sky was unlike anything I've ever seen before. It, no matter what it was, was "real" The occurrence later that night, as to what that was all about is up for conjecture. One thing I know, whether "real" or not, I do not want to go through that again. And if the "dream" was an actual occurrence, then whoever or whatever "took me away" were not real friendly types, this I can assure you. I'm surprised that I didn't die from the effects or rather the fear.

So, who knows. I have thought about going through a regression, but I think that if this did happen, I don't know if I would want to relive it, and perhaps this is what stops me from seeking the regression.

Thank you to the person for this report.
