Kia ora (hello in Maori)
This is gonna be a long one!
Two months ago I was staying at my friends holiday house on a small secluded beach. My partner and a close friend were there too. It was a very still night with patchy clouds. The house is right on the water of a sheltered cove and it was very quiet.
It was 9pm and we were stargazing when over a ridge comes three super bright lights and they were dancing across the sky! They were below the low patches of cloud, and actually pretty close to us. Two lights danced gently and one light whizzed around them very playfully. We were quite frozen while watching, they flew almost overhead and made no noise at all! I called out to them and they suddenly formed that cliche UFO triangle, with its plain facing us.
At this point I sorta break out of my trance and grab the binoculars. Of course none of us could find our phones, and it was almost impossible to look away long enough to find them. When the lights went in front of a cloud I didn’t see any mass behind or in the lights, just these perfect big neon blue orbs. They kept flying about 20 degrees against the wind out to sea where they slowly went from a triangle to a weird other shape like a droplet and then back to a triangle. If anyone had looked up then, they would have just seemed like stars. When they had faded from the naked eye they were still visible with the binoculars.
The whole encounter lasted about 8 minutes. We had four witnesses who saw the whole thing. We all described them afterwards as friendly, and weirdly enough they reminded us of dolphins, tourists and a family. They seemed so natural, their movements were beautiful, we all felt in awe. Earlier that day we had been having a lot of strange synchronicities to the point that it became the joke of the day. But to see the ufos after kinda blew us away.
I’ve seen ufos before as I was a kid raised on Star Trek and NASA worship and therefore have spent a good chunk of my life looking up. This was the most convincing sighting I’ve ever had. It couldn’t have been any commercial drone as there was no sound, however, there is a small military training came directly in the direction the appeared from (if they were heading in a straight line) it also is used as a small weapons testing site. It’s New Zealand, so we only have small military bases.
So me being the goofball I am I decide to ask the base if they saw or were responsible for what we saw. This was by email. I described what we saw and the conditions etc. Their reply was a bit spooky! Basically, they said it was lasers from a local laser shop, but they didn’t know it’s name or where it is but good luck finding it! I can 100% guarantee that was not lasers. We also searched for this laser shop anywhere in a huge radius around it. None, no party hire shops, no electronic stores, nothing! So were they lying?
One of the witnesses, a woman in her early 30s, has never seen anything paranormal in her life and it’s been interesting how much she’s changed since. We all have. We were up at the holiday house basically to give a friend an intervention, and he said when he saw the lights they gave him hope, now he wants to live.
I’d love to hear anyone’s thoughts please! And if you want proof all I’ve got is the emails between me and the military, and a long conversation between me and my friends online discussing what we saw.
