I received the following submission this week:
Hi...I came across your website and wanted to know if anyone has ever seen a creature which resembles Yoda (from Star Wars). I know it sounds silly but about 20 years ago my friend and I decided to drive out to an area (Highway 27, Hamilton Rd from Columbus, GA towards Hamilton) we were two dumb teenagers at the time who heard a rumor there were Satan worshipers out in the woods...as teenagers do, we decided to investigate it for laughs and have fun scaring ourselves.
We turned down a dirt road and followed it for a while until we wound up driving into a large open grass field. It was very dark out that night and quiet. While we did not see any "satan worshipers", I decided to to try and scare my friend sitting in the passenger seat by placing my car in park in the big open field and I turned off my head lights for only about 10 or 15 seconds which put us in complete darkness. We could not even see each other let alone anything outside the car around us.
I then turned my headlights back on (the car was still running the whole time) and when we looked forward, there standing in front of my car, almost touching the front bumper was a creature to this day we cannot explain.
The creature was about 6 feet tall, had two legs but not human legs. They were bent like an animals hind-legs. From the waste up he literally looked like yoda. Grayish light green in color. Strange long ears. Somewhat flat but scrunched up face. Big round eyes which looked us both in the eyes. The eyes were on the front of the face (not on the side). It was definitely NOT a deer or any other normal animal of the woods. I don't remember seeing arms but it appeared to have two little short skinny arms in the front but I can't be certain. It only stood there for about 5 seconds then turned around and quickly went away into the night.
It didnt have a distinct run or walk or jump...it was somewhere in the middle of run, jump, hop, glide kind of movement when it hurried away. Even that was not a normal movement of any animal or person.
Naturally my friend and I screamed and I threw my car in reverse and raced out of there as fast as I could. We never went back to search for another sighting as one time was good enough for us but I am interested to know if anyone else has experienced the same?
NOTE: the witness did provide contact information for serious inquiries only.
Back in 2009 I received an email from an Canadian reader who had toured the ancient Mayan city of Uxmal in Mexico. He recalled while in one of the smaller temples he witnessed a clear, bright apparition resembling a tall bird with long legs and short clawed forearms. He also stated that the head and face paralleled the Star War's character Yoda, including the long ears. It's interesting since this was the first and only time I received this type of description until this week. There is a legend that Uxmal was built in one night by the magic of the dwarf king. I'm not familiar with the Quetzalcoatl cult and if there are deities that would support this sighting. Also, to what extent could the ancient aliens theory or the other prophecies play into this? Lon
