The #1 Paranormal News Site
Hey guys, i have posted the following in a group on whatsapp Yesterday night, but i think that it would fit into here as well and maybe some of you would be excited to read this. Except of a few minor words i have pretty much copied + pasted this from my original text.
I am a backpacker and I am traveling for around 2 years now. When I have been to New Zealand, I went camping somewhere in the middle of a national park close to wellington on the North Island. It was a huge forest in the middle of nowhere, close to Lake Kohangapiripiri (just checked it on Google Earth. It wasnt exactly there, but somewhere in that area). It was a free camp site and very beautiful. I was completely alone, there were no other people around and I have set up my tent on a clearing in that forest – maybe 50 meters away from the trees which were surrounding me. It got late and I relaxed in the dark in front of my tent watching the night sky. It was totally stunning. There were no clouds and as there was zero light pollution, you could clearly see every single star including the giant Milky Way. It was so clear and dark that even between the bigger stars you could see hundreds of tiny ones- almost like star dust. Some of you outdoor guys maybe know what I mean. Just pure beauty.
And then- while I was sitting there and observating the sky, all of a sudden there was an orange light flashing up in the forest. That light, it was like a big orange ball, I like to describe it as an orb, was just floating there in the trees maybe a meter above the Ground. It was there where the clearing ended and the trees began, 50 meters away from me. The light had maybe the size of a meter and didnt move. It just floated there above the ground.
Then, after a few seconds, it began to slowly take off and moved just over the tree tops where it stopped again. It didnt move for another few seconds and then, all of a sudden,it shot away fast as a laser beam high into the night sky where it disappeared. Just like that. Like a cannon ball straight into the sky. It didnt make any noise at all for the whole time. I just sat there, completely confused and didnt know what to think. Staring at the trees and the sky. Ever since I was little I am fascinated in the universe and still today I watch and read plenty of stuff about the whole topic. I am convinced that we are not alone in the universe and that there are things happening that no one knows about. But don't get me wrong, I am also a critical thinker and I like to be very rational. I consider all the possibilities. Of course, I consider that it was a drone or something similar. But the location where it happened was super remote. There were no streets, no buildings and the next smaller town was probably about 50 kilometers away. And also there was not a single other person. No campers or hikers or whatever. Just no one, for the entire day. I have arrived there in the afternoon and I would have seen other people if they have also came there. I sat there, confused , didnt know what to think and then I went to "bed". Im honest, I was also pretty scared because I have never seen anything like this before and I have a big imagination haha.
The next morning there was another camper coming and started talking to me. We had a little small talk and I told him about my experience. He was not really crazy about it, he just said it must have been the moonlight reflected by the mountains. Which is stupid and not possible, I don't know what it was, but for sure not a moonlight reflection.
Anyway. Almost a year later, a month ago from today (I am in australia now) I was just randomly surfing the internet when I stumbled upon a report about a woman who claimed she saw 3 orange lights taking off like a laser shot into the night sky. She described it exactly the way I saw it. Taking off, stopping, boom and it's gone. It were just three lights when she saw it, not one. I was really excited as for the first time I read exactly my own words written by someone else. Then I googled orange orbs and similar stuff and I saw there there were acutally a lot of reports of people claiming to have seen those orange lights. And now I started again to think about it a lot – but still, I have no clue what it is and I'm afraid I will never find out hehe.
I can't really say what reactions I expect here now. I just think that you might be interested in this experience and maybe you like to share your opinion or something. And feel free to ask me anything hehe. Cheers
TLDR: Went camping in New Zealand. Remote and Alone. It got late and while I was watching the night sky, there was an orange light flashing up in the forest and all of a sudden, it took off like a laser beam into the night sky and disappeared.
