You Get What You Ask For: Flying Saucer Car and Power Outage


I'm reading Andrew Colvin's Mothman's Photographer III, and it's fantastic. I really do think that this book, as well as MP II, is in the top 10 books anyone obsessed with esoterica should read. Something I read in the book last night about intent and focus in the context of paranormal or esoteric symbolic events inspired me to include that with my daily intent. So I focused on asking for something to come my way today; some kind of symbol, sign, etc. of an esoteric nature.

I spent most of the day driving, coming back from the coast where I had spent the night. So I'm driving along on the highway at about sixty miles an hour, and I see in the oncoming lane an object going a good seventy ... and it wasn't until it was right by me and whizzed on by that I realized -- it was a flying saucer!!!

I looked in my rear view mirror, yep, I saw what I thought I saw! It as very low to the ground, disc shaped, with a little point in the middle. It was a medium to dark blue color. It looked like it had three small wheel but it could have had more. I couldn't see any windows; I don't know how the driver could see out. Or fit in the thing, for that matter. It was pretty small.

If it was remote controlled, I don't see how they could get away with that. Highly illegal. And dangerous. This is a major, busy highway with lots of traffic both ways, coming and going from the coast inland. And on a holiday, more traffic than usual, with people visiting the coast for the day, or the three day weekend. Seems like a dumb thing to do, but who knows.

This area of Oregon is full of alternate technology loving people; you see all kinds of hybrid, electric and pedal powered vehicles. I have no idea what this flying saucer "car" runs on, etc. but it was damn cool.

I tried to find something on-line about it but haven't found anything yet. I'll try to draw a picture of it and post it later.

Another thing that happened: I stopped at my favorite crystal store, Planet Yachats, in Yachats. As I was chatting with the owner, I commented about the "buzzy" feeling-- I get that a lot in those kinds of places -- just then, the power went out! All the lights went out; we stepped outside, and all the little shops in the small row or block had the same thing happen; no power. From looking across the street, the power was still on over there; signs still on, etc.

That three wheeled bit makes me think of those 3 wheeled electric cars and trucks. Although I don't think any of them can reach anywhere near 70mph. Not to mention they don't look at all flying saucer like.

And you're definitely right about all the alt-tech lovers here in Oregon. I see all types of them in Hillsboro, most recently it's been them Segway scooter things...

Oh, and sorry about deleting my first comment...I had a typo in it...I hate typos when I make a comment lol...

Thanks Naveed. I saw it not far from the Three Rivers Casino, I wonder if maybe it was some kind of promotional thing for them, or connected in some way?

Possibly. The other thing I can think of is that perhaps someone was having a bit to much fun test driving a float for this years McMinville UFO Festival. It's only a few months away now...speaking of which I need to go and check that out this year...
