|I encountered three small grey creatures and a rolling ball of light while walking at a near by lake.
It was the night of a full moon and I had taken my dog for a midnight walk to a nearby lake reserve, and had walked some distance along the lake side under the gum trees. From this point the reserve opened into a clearing. I had planned to cross this clearing but saw some figures in the distance moving towards me. They were some distance off and I thought they must be three or four boys, judging from their hieght. I also observed a white object that was moving, wich I presumed to be a white pair of jeans reflecting the moon light as the figures moved. As I was a lone female out walking on a reserve very late at night, I thought it prudent to wait quietly in the dark near the trees until these boys had passed on there way.
As I crouched there with my dog and watched them approach, I slowly became aware that the figures I had thought were children were actually small humanoids who's arms and legs seemed to be too long for their bodies. They moved with a strange gait and seemed to be unclothed with dark greyish skin (although this was difficult to disern in the moonlight). As I watched in amazement and horror the boucing white object revealed itself as a rolling ball of light trailing behind the three pint size people. At this point my dog began barking and growling at them and was obviously terrified! The figures who had been walking in single file, followed by the rolling ball of light stopped in their tracks. The leader lifted his strange long arm high in the air and let out a spine tingling cry, and at this point my dog bolted with her tail between her legs, leaving me to fend for myself. After watching my dog disert me the creatures duplicated my dogs behaviour and they dissappeared into a thicket of very high wild lupins not far off! This experience was followed up the following night when my cousin, on hearing of my encounter, some how persuaded me to return to the lake with him, armed with a camera. We did not meet anymore strange figures but were buzzed by a large craft of white light which hoverd several times over the clearing. My cousin took photographs of the light but I wasn't so eager to rush out into the clearing. The strangest thing about the whole episode was that although I was naturally terrified, I believe these creatures were even more terrified of me.
