UFO sighting and landing Denmark 1981

My first UFO sighting and experience with the UFO phenomenon

The first UFO sighting (UFO landing) and experience with an extraterrestrial paranormal reality I had, was around 1981 in a 12-13 years age. I don´t remember the actual date but it was in the late summertime around 8.00-8.30 pm in the evening. Darkness had just fallen and the sky was cloudless and we could see the stars clearly. I was together with 4-5 other kids including my neighbour, which was also my classmate and in same age as me.

My eyes were often directed towards the sky and that evening was no exception. So I see this star move across the sky high up and points to the sky, wow see up there, and we were all observing a bright sparkling light, that at first glance seemed to move across the sky, but we soon realized that it descended slowly but steady in a slightly curved path down, until it disappeared behind some trees about 1-2 kilometers away I think. We were all aware of this mysterious object at last, because we could see it was comming down. We all looked at it for a minute or two while it descended, until it disappeared behind the trees. Then nothing happend for some time and while we were waiting for it to come back up, it became late and the other kids walked home one by one, except me and my neighbor, we were still waiting on the spot.

It passed the half hour and we also had to seek for our homes, because our parents has said we should be home at that time. Finally we gave up waiting for more to see and began walking home, but after only few steps, we looked at each other, turned around and sprinted back to the spot where we saw the object come down. Exactly as we both were back on that spot and had our eyes directed towards the UFO landing site, we saw a thin streak of light, from behind the trees and actually out in space. It was there and gone under a microsecond, like a camera flash, and we both screamed "oorrrhhhhh" to each other after seeing that techno performance.

I clearly remember the sparkling light as the same type of light you see comming from arc welding and for some reason, I got this feeling later on, that the sparkling light had something to do with the movement of the craft, but how it was related, I don´t know. I didn´t see the craft, just the light, so I have no idea how big it was and what shape it had. We didn´t hear any sound from the object as I remember it. No sound then it came down and no sound then it streaked away out in space.

A funny little detail I remember, is that then we ran back to the spot, I arrived first and had my eyes on where the UFO landed. I then see out of the corner of my eye my neighbors head and torso appear almost horizontal behind me to the left, and while I see him come into sight, he turns his head and the moment he has his eyes pointed towards the landing site, we then see this thin streak of light in a vertical line from where it landed and up into space. I am asking my self, how it can be, that we both suddenly get the same impulse at exactly same time, that we must return to watch again, and exactly as we are back on the spot, we see it. I think that is strange.

UFO observation map & illustration

In the map below, you can see the observation point and a white arrow pointing in the direction where the unidentified flying object probably landed. This direction is quite accurate, because I have landmarks to measure with. What surprises me somewhat, is that the direction where the UFO went down, points directly to an area of ​​fields where there are good opportunities to land an extraterrestrial craft relatively hidden without scaring anyone to death. A part of the accommodation on the outskirts of the area, is new buildings and did not exist back then. The highway (Fynske Motorvej) and the traffic circle left of the green E20 sign in the map, was also not build at that time the UFO sighting occured, and there were fields where the highway is today.

Unfortunately, none of us children were aware at that time in our lives that an investigation had to be conducted and life continued undaunted. However, I tried to convince my parents that we had seen a star, namely an unknown craft, descend and land few miles from us, but nobody believed me. I have no contact to my neighbor today and I have not talked to him since I went out of school in 1986. I feel that we both had some sort of connection to the strange things that happened then, but how he is related, I have no idea. But we were together a couple of times, then strange things happend.

The UFO observation saved me a lot of trouble

This UFO observation was a milestone for me. To see it with my own eyes and understand, that yes, they were there, gave me a wonderful satisfactory peace of mind in a very problematic period of my life. At that time, I could not see a meaning with my life and life in general. I could not see the point in my reality so to speak, and was about to run totally off the track. But this first observation gave me the understanding, that there were light at the end of the tunnel and there were indeed a meaning of life. It simply woke me up and from that period of time, I began to care more for other people, that I did not do before. It started a positive consciousness proces that really changed my life to the better, and if I did not had that sighting, the most of my life had probably been lived out in a jail.

Related paranormal experiences

The story does not end here. In the following days after the observation, something happend to me, which I at that time were not complete conscious about what was. When you wake up from a dream, you remember it some time after, but after a while it disappears from your conscious mind and you´ll usually forget it. But this "dream" was not a dream I remembered then I woke up one morning, because this dream (or paranormal experience) came out of nowhere and I've never forgotten it again. It´s like you suddenly gain an experience of an event you have been part of, but you just can´t point out when or where it happend in physical time.
