Hello. I only just found this forum this morning. If you're familiar with the movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, then you will be able to grasp what I'm going through lately after witnessing what both my wife and I witnessed. Like the main character in that movie, my experience has plagued me every day, and has gotten to the point that I just have to share this with people who might know something about this. I'm reluctant to give certain specifics due to the possibility that some crank might claim that they were driving the car, or whatever. So, maybe I could email just one or two trusted person(s) here with certain specifics about our experience, that person would be able to verify as an independent party claims someone might make about the make/model, and location. I welcome suggestions as to how to handle this.
Anyway, my wife and I were driving along a paved road in western Kentucky earlier this year, just enjoying the scenery and the freedom of being out of the house after being cooped up a few months during the stupid covid lockdown. As we were coming to a very rural intersection, maybe 100 yds before the stop, I spotted a shiny black top of a car on the left heading toward the intersection. We were heading south, it was on an intercept course from the east. The field on the left had been bush hogged, but the wire fence line all along the east/west road had tall weeds blocking my view of the rest of the car. I didn't pay any more attention to the car, since I knew it was there and coming our way, and should pass through the intersection in front of us, so I figured I would just wait at the stop sign until it passed. As I stopped at the intersection, I mentioned to my wife that I have to stay put because there was a car coming. After waiting enough time for it to have passed, with no car crossing our path from behind the weeds on the left, I started to creep into the intersection, and made our left turn. There was no car in sight. It never showed up. It didn't pass in front of us, nor did it turn either direction toward or away from us. There was absolutely no place it could have gone or turned around! My wife said "Where did it go??". It was then when she told me she had seen it too, but it was much closer to the intersection than I had seen it. The weeds were more sparse at that point. She saw the grill, and part of the windshield and top. She said it was black, which is what I had seen. It was also moving when she saw it. When she saw it, she said it was "bearing down on the intersection" at a fairly good speed, and too fast to stop. (When we went back later, only then did we notice that there was a stop sign for that side, too.) From her description, and from doing a lot of image searching of car grills on the internet, I am fairly sure we know the make/model of the car. The year is uncertain, but have a rough range of years.
My wife and I are retired, and I imagine what just about anyone would describe as pretty conventional people. Neither of us uses any kind of mind altering drug and we don't even drink alcohol. I'm telling you this truthfully, and just had to get this off my chest. I doubt we'll ever know what really happened. If anyone knows, please post here. Thank you.
