Close encounter of the third kind


Close encounter of the third kind: “UFO encounters in which an animated creature is present. These include humanoids, robots, and humans who seem to be occupants or pilots of a UFO“.


Everything is true (or almost):

Back in 2013 I witnessed this strange phenomenon. While taking a picture of my friends in the park, we were suddenly caught in a dense fog. We heard a loud hissing sound and, all of a sudden, seemingly out of nowhere, these “humanoids” or “entities” appeared. My friends quickly turned around and managed to snap a few shots of these “beings” with their cellphone, while I pressed the shutter to capture a picture of them surrounded by these strange creatures. The whole thing lasted only for a few seconds, then the fog cleared and everything was normal again….

Designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, this bridge, inaugurated in December 2000, is of a unique design in France. Its simple and clean lines make it majestic and its integration into the unique landscape is quite successful.

Etretat, Normandy in France on a cold and very foggy day in March 2014.

At the top of the cliff stands the stone silhouette of the chapel “Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde”, protector of fishermen. The present building replaces a brick and stone neo-Gothic chapel of the nineteenth century . The original was destroyed by the occupying forces during World War II.
