UFO Encounter, Power Loss, Possible Abduction & Disappearing Photos

A UFO appears in Playa del Rey, California in January 2017. The eyewitness, along with others, observes the event, takes photos, and then experiences a possible abduction.

I received the following account:

"Hello, sir. It was dusk on January 23, 2017. I was at my house in Playa del Rey, California. My lights dimmed to orange accompanied by an odd sound like the powering up of a large transformer the opposite noise I expected to accompany lights dimming. The lights came back up suddenly but went out altogether just a few seconds later. I went to my outside fuse box to check the breakers but only took two steps outside the house to notice a large craft directly above me maybe only 100 feet up. It was obviously responsible for a power outage as I could see other houses go black underneath it as it proceeded out toward the ocean. I was initially freaked out and ran to a local restaurant two blocks away. I didn't believe in UFOs until then, so I wanted a witness and I grabbed the manager I know Mario, who while complaining about his customers with no power was also being physically dragged outside by me. I pointed at a large UFO and said what the @#$% is that? He looked very alarmed and just stared. His hostess came out and she looked like someone about to scream, which she then did, but pointed opposite the large craft.

The hillside opposite the ocean had at least seven small lights blinking in and out hovering over and under the power lines and transformers that go up that hill. They were moving quickly, and I saw that entities were emerging partially from lights. I was the only one who ran closer. I ran up to the foot of the hill and began filming until I could tell one saw me and it landed behind me in my alley in an aggressive manner I took off back to the restaurant and a hub of humanity. That one took off back to a large ship.

I went to my neighbors took a telescope and shot photos using my iPhone.

I have a view of a large craft without light obstruction as it was blinking I caught one moment with no light emitting.

I would have sent photos but, for some unknown reason, the images were no longer on my iPhone. I didn't remove them. They just disappeared. I even went to the phone store, but there was nothing to retrieve.

Unrelated? The next few days were odd as I felt very much like someone was watching me and following me. A full week later I fell asleep at 2pm and did not wake until 8 am, I had 4 bruises on each bicep in the same pattern. Very odd. Nothing since and have not had the someone following out of the corner of my eye feeling since." P

DOPPELGÄNGERS: SHOULD WE FEAR THEM? | Join Us For LIVE CHAT | Questions & Answers #Doppelgänger

Have you ever met someone who looked just like you? Perhaps you’ve walked up to a person you thought you knew only to find they were a stranger. If so, you may have met a real-life doppelgänger.

What is a doppelgänger? The word comes from German meaning “double goer.” Today, it’s often used to describe two strangers who look so much alike they could be twins. Seeing a doppelgänger can be startling. That’s true whether it’s a person who looks just like you or someone who could be your friend’s twin. It’s no wonder, then, that doppelgängers are also common in frightening stories.

Many times, a doppelgänger is the double of another character. They are like the character in many ways, most often in looks. However, the things that make them different are more important. The doppelgänger often differs from the main character in the values they hold. This results in them making choices that lead them down a different path. For example, “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson. In this story, both characters share the same body. However, they are opposites, with Dr. Jekyll representing good and Mr. Hyde evil.

There is also a historical attribute to this phenomenon. President Abraham Lincoln supposedly saw his doppelgänger when he saw two faces in the mirror on the night of his first election in 1860. The second face was pale and sickly, which his wife, Mary, interpreted as a sign of death or sickness during his second term. Only a few months after his second election, Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth.

So, what do you think a doppelgänger represents? Listen to these accounts and form your opinion.
