12.30 PM.

Mike was living in a small trailer caravan outside his parents' house in a rural setting in the Aeron Valley, south-east of Aberaeron.

One night, around August 1991, Mike was in his caravan listening to the radio, when suddenly the sound went static. He heard clicks coming from it also, that turned into beeps of descending pitch all the way to subsonic, ascending back up to a high pitch, then clicks again. Listening to this, he started feeling a bit nervous, especially when he heard his dog in the nearby house porch, barking. He then heard a low rumbling outside, that gradually got louder and louder and he decided to go outside to see what it was.

In the dark, at first he could see nothing but then noticed a silhouette of what he thought was a large aeroplane with one wing pointing up and one pointing down at the ground, coming slowly over a hill and looking so low that he was sure it was going to crash. It was heading inland, away from the direction of the coast, in a south-easterly direction.

He could see no fuselage although he strained to look for it. The object was huge and moved overhead with a thunderous tearing of the air. No features were visible on it, as the object was dark. Mike could feel a kind of uncomfortable static in the air and he suddenly had a bad headache as he watched the object fly over him. It then hovered and seemed so large and slow that Mike was sure it was going to fall out of the sky.

Mike could next remember looking up and dizzily falling to the ground, and had a feeling like his head being momentarily stuck to the ground, like he had been unconscious.  He later had memories return in which he was crawling back across the field to his trailer, then struggling to walk straight and having difficulty opening the latch on the caravan door. As the massive object moved further away, it showed a red light on each side and Mike was for a moment convinced it was a large plane. But then yellow, purple, green and orange lights appeared in symmetry, making the object look more like an arc or an aircraft perpendicular to the ground.

Three years later, in 1994 Mike suffered injuries in a car crash and broke his neck. But before the crash, he had dreamt on three different occasions about the crash happening. In his last dream he said there was a pink flying saucer at the end.

During the crash itself, he was somehow inspired to recite the Buddhist prayer for peace - 'Om-mani-padme-hum' as the vehicles collided and he blacked out, feeling his car spinning. He then had some sort of vision or near-death experience. He felt as if he was lifted up into the clouds and looking about him he could see only brightness and a white mist-like being in an 'invisible plane'. Mike turned round to see a giant man, who was at least 9 feet tall when sitting down. Mike was scared but the man gestured with his hand, as if to say it was OK. The man spoke to Mike telepathically and explained that he could choose to live or die. Mike asked him for advice and the man just showed him images of friends and family mourning. Mike then saw his son at the age of two years come running out of nowhere, though at the time of the crash, his son was five months from being born (Mike later said that when his son reached two years old in 'reality', he looked exactly as he had done in this 'vision').

Mike then decided that it wasn't time to go yet. A door opened and he could see the wrecked car  below, with his body in it.

"I was kind of thrown back in and came around to hear the farmer telling his farmhands that I was dead and not to go look. I was a mess though. I think I've seen a couple of other strange things in the sky since due to an increased awareness of phenomena, but these were my most vivid experiences."

Mike was not aware of any missing time during his UFO experience, but was sure it was no normal aircraft, bearing in mind the radio interference, the dog barking, and the physiological effects he experienced which caused him to collapse.

He has also had a recurring vivid dream in which he is in an operating theatre-kind-of-setting and having long metal probes inserted behind his eyeballs, at which point he wakes up in a sweat  and short of breath. He thinks the dreams are somehow linked to the incident in his mind, although he has had no memory of anything like that happening at the time of the incident.

It is hoped that SUFON will be conducting a hypnosis session soon to help Mike recover subdued memories.
