fast hovering lights on the beach

Hello to whoever reads this, this is the story of an event that took place in my life around 3 years. My brother and I were walking along the beach near our parents house at around 20:00 hours. It is not uncommon to be alone on this beach as few people live in the area, this was one of those occasions. We walked only a short distance down from our access to the beach and decided to sit for a while. The low wind and few waves made it very quiet. That was when things took an abnormal turn.

As we sat there talking we notice a light at the end of the point which was about 2kms away. The beach is the shape of a crescent moon, the light was at the left point and we where in the middle. We didn’t take much notice of it at first because 4x4s use that end of the beach frequently, suddenly the light disappeared then reappeared. Of course we where not scared by this, it was only when the light stared to move around the crest of the beach at tremendous speed that it gain our attention.

Attention turned to alarm as the light drew closer and we could hear no sound of a motor. The light covered the distance from the point to our position in around 20seconds. By this time my brother who is an emotional lad was in hysterics running flat out for the exit. I thought it prudent to follow but curiosity got the better of me and I stopped just before the access, as I turned I saw the light had stopped just before the shore line about 20metres from me. As I stood there I saw that this light did not just face forward but evenly illuminated 5metres around it in every direction. I could also see that there was no physical object holding this light up, it was hovering about 1metre off the ground. I got the distinct feeling that it was aware of my presence and it was using caution.

By this stage my brother had left the beach and was screaming at me from down the access to run. My one regret now is that I did not investigate further but I gave in to my brother’s pleas and moved off the beach. The beach rises quite quickly from the water line to the top of a small dune which stretches the length of the beach with a few trees scattered along the ridge. It then descends into a gully, then up again onto another dune. As I caught up with my terrified brother in the gully we turned around to see if the light was following. The light ascended off the beach to a height that it could be seen in the gully, easily 30 feet off the ground.

Almost simultaneously we started moving further down the access and the light descended back on the beach. It then started moving at high speed back the way it came, we know this because we could see the glow along the top of the dune. After a brief period back on the road that leads to the beach access we collected our wits and thought about it sensibly, we realized that it was low tide so any land vehicle would have to have left some sort of track on the beach. So we then proceeded back onto the beach to search physical signs of what we just saw, however nothing could be seen on over a kilometer of beach covered.

I have no man made explanation for what we saw that night. All I know is that it was aware of our presence and exercised some degree of caution indicating intelligence.

Thank you for reading.
