The twisted road led me to this hidden valley surrounded by cliffs and dense forests. I can barely settle because of the dazzling view, but maybe all this enthusiasm is because the place I’m about to visit promises to offer an even more impressive panorama. Only a few miles down the road and I see the first cave, suspended on a steep crag. Its broad entrance makes my sporadic curiosity go beyond the present, thinking of how easily an ancient civilization could had used that place to outlive a global catastrophe.
Although I have expected the cave to be a tourist attraction by now, the close-up view revealed through the binocular lenses disclosed that it was in fact a remote cave that couldn’t be accessed without special mountaineering equipment. At this point, the legendary feeling of the place was slowly becoming a reality.
The Keeper awaited me at the base of the hill. From there, we followed the path until we reached the high pastures. The world I knew vanished entirely after reaching the Sanctuary.
The tranquility of the place couple up with the breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape gave me a feeling of immortality, but not for me, this for this hidden wonder that passed the test of time, remaining unaltered after countless wars and an industrial revolution. Now I see why sky-watchers and conspirators alike gather here to exchange knowledge and investigate the UFO phenomenon.
Our host, Welcica, had once been a man of faith. Like every other Romanian, he had deep Christian roots transmitted from one generation to the other, but after the answers provided by religion were not enough to satisfy his thirst for universal knowledge, he was guided to this place where he would undergo a substantial transformation. A few years spent up here had shown him at least a dozen unexplained aerial phenomenon, and I’m not talking about the usual chem spraying riffraff we all know about.
Q: What was the most consistent UFO experience you’ve had up here?
A: I don’t have to think much about that, as I’ll never forget what I’ve witnessed back in 2014. The encounter was overwhelming. I am glad that I’m still here to tell the tale.
Q: You’re insinuating that your life was put in peril by a UFO encounter? Would you mind going into more details?
A: It was about …. When I was sitting relaxed on the porch together with two conspirators. We were discussing about the giant bones unearthed not far from here when one of us saw a strange light up in the horizon. At first, we didn’t pay much attention to it and carried on with our conversation, but as soon as every dog on the valley started barking, we pointed our eyes towards the sky. Now, I told you this place is strategically put, like the center of cauldron with rocky walls. You can only access it through where you came from, where the valleys are opening up. There we saw this bright, circular light that was slowly hovering over the lowlands. It was heading towards us, and as it did, the barking of the dogs became even louder.
Q: Could you break down the UFO a bit?
A: Before doing this, I would like to mention that it did not give me an overall feeling of safety. It looked light a sphere of light, but as it was moving, pieces from it seemed to be missing. It was not a complete sphere, but more like a liquid object swimming through the air. It continued to hover over the valley until it reached a point about 200-300 meters from where we were standing. Now I could see it better. Whenever it moved, its shape was vibrating and changing at the same time. I could see waves fluctuating out of its energy shield, almost like it was alive.
Q: So what distressed you about this encounter?
A: When it was close enough, I could see the faint, conic shape of another light emitted by the UFO. It strongly resembled a flashlight scouting in the dark. Then I realized it was looking for something, or maybe scanning the area. The tip of the iceberg was when the luminous sphere directed its light towards us. It stopped at about 150 meters on the right side of the cabin and scanned the face of my friend. My buddies and I were frozen in place at this point, unable to think of a reaction. The moment only lasted for approximately 5 seconds. Afterwards, the sphere took flight over the hill, slowly descending for the nearby village. It continued to move up and down without following a specific pattern.
Q: That’s a fascinating story. Do you have any viable explanation for it in mind?
A: At first I thought of it being some sort of military device, considering that they own technology far ahead of our time and also have several secret bases located in the mountains nearby. But after debating this with the other two witnesses, we’ve reached the conclusion of it being a living organism. It was very peculiar: the way it moved, morphed and reacted to the environment.
Q: Are there other notable experiences you would like to share?
A: I see strange things on a regular basis here. UFOs are something common, and I can now distinguish between what’s what, but this incident that I’ve mentioned beats the others by far. However, I sometimes see this red dot that’s locking on certain airplanes. It follows them and it doesn’t leave any visible trail behind. I suspect this to be a military device though.
