Have you ever witnessed something and then immediately looked around to see if anyone else saw it too – because you know, 100%, that no one will ever believe you without corroboration?
These 17 people have had exactly that experience, and they’re sharing with us what they swear they saw (believe it or not).
17. Alien abduction.
I have never mentioned this before to anyone. Scene: EPCOT in Orlando, on the brick walkway between a walk-thru part with stores and such on either side and the part leading up to The Land. Date: June 2008.
I was with my pregnant wife. Huge storm rolls in, black clouds, about to pour, when there was this unearthly deafening sound and bright light exploded. I opened my eyes and I was standing 30 feet or more away back under the covered walkway, unharmed.
My wife said I had been standing right beside her, then I wasn’t. It was too far to have run in the brief second of the explosion (I assume a lightning strike). Swear this happened as well as I could tell it.
16. I wonder where they were going.
Driving back from work along a little river road saw a farmer in a boat with a cow in there with him right in the middle of the river.
15. His sister wasn’t lying.
I live in a rural community in Canada. My sister came to see me once and swore up and down that she saw a zebra grazing in the fields. I made fun of her for a couple of years about how the zebra roam the north pole and how Santa has zebra instead of reindeer. She was really starting to doubt herself but stuck to her guns.
Well, I was driving one day and lo and behold, a f**king zebra grazing in the field. Turns out a zoo sometimes lets them roam around there.
When I told my sister she felt vindicated.
14. They weren’t that drunk.
I threw a party at the condo I lived in with my sister and mom while they were on vacation when I was maybe 17?
After the party died down me and 4 of my close friend were the only ones still there and awake and while talking by the top of the basement stairs the handle of the door at the top that was closed moved like someone was struggling to open it.
Thinking someone passed out in my basement and was too drunk to get the door open I opened it to an empty basement.
All my friends saw this happen and we stayed up til the morning in my living room too freaked out to move. Everyone blows it off like we were just hammered but by then we were nearly sobered up.
13. Seems likely.
6 years ago I went through 10 surgeries for a badly broken leg. During one of the surgeries early on, I have distinct memories of waking up and hearing, seeing and smelling several minutes of the surgery.
I also remember a nurse looking me in the eye and then telling someone I was awake. I then passed back out, presumably due to more anesthesia.
No one believes me that this happened. I’m now terribly afraid of surgery and hope I never have to enter another operating room.
12. Full-body chills.
I saw a dude standing next to my truck with an unnaturally wide smile.
I was on highway 49 east right outside Greenwood, MS. I heard hail hit my truck a few times so I pulled over expecting a tornado.
I was grabbing my backpack getting ready to bail out for the ditch. I turn back to the driver side window to check my mirror and this guy was just standing there. Smiling.
It scared me so bad I just slammed the truck in drive and got out of there.
11. Minds were blown.
Kept telling my mom and sister I was seeing UFOs. Kept happening really regularly and frequently. Eventually I got them all to come outside because it was about time for one to show up. And it did.
It was a stealth bomber being test flown, long before the public announcement about them went out or any pics were leaked.
Blew all of our minds.
10. Something weird for sure.
I am going to share something my grandma told me that she saw, because it is so f**king weird and I have never heard anything like this before in my life.
My grandma and her cousin were walking on a country road in Oklahoma, sometime in the 1940s. They saw a strange figure float up over a hill up ahead about half a football field away. She said it appeared 2 dimensional and it was roughly the size of a cow. It was white and was composed of geometric shapes.
It had a rectangular body, with no legs (it floated). It had a square head at one end with two little triangle ears and little slit looking eyes. No nose or mouth that she could see. When the figure rose up over the hill, my grandma and her cousin froze in terror.
The thing froze, too. They all just stood there staring at each other for a moment. Then it’s head floated to the opposite end of its body and it floated back in the direction it came from. Her cousin corroborates her story, but it’s just very strange to me.
I believe that they saw something weird, but I’m not sure I’m convinced that a weird two dimensional demon cow is out there floating around in Oklahoma somewhere.
9. There was a second.
When we were ten years old, all of my cousins and siblings were playing hide and seek in the dark in the middle of a park. When someone gets found, you join the seeker to look for people, but you can’t tell them where they are.
I was the seeker and I had just found one of my cousins, so we were walking around and looking for the rest. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw someone that looked exactly like my brother run past us at inhuman speed.
I turned to look at my cousin and he had admitted that he saw the same thing.
We found my brother later in the round, but he was at the other side of the park. Nobody believes either of us but both of us still remember it.
8. Hello, Dracula.
One night i saw 3 bats flying above my head in the sky and the middle one was 20 times bigger than the regular bats.
I thought I saw the same thing once, I was kind of tipsy , it was dark, and what looked like a bat the size of a person flew over my house. I only realized a few years later when it happened again and I got a better look that it was a heron and they look terrifying when flying at night.
7. Someone needs to check in on those animals.
A few years back I saw a capybara in my front yard (in Alabama). NO ONE believed me because by the time I came back with my phone he was gone.
The best I got was a, “I guess it might have been a capybara” after a local man was found to have his own exotic animal collection less than three miles away.
Other animals I saw in that yard: an emu and two bison.
I must have lived pretty close to that dude’s land.
Edit to add: it was def a capybara. I watched it for several minutes and estimated it’s weight somewhere around 100-130lbs . Dude also had a panther escape in the area which brought in state wildlife officials.
6. I don’t like any of that.
Not something I saw, something I felt and heard. I was struggling to sleep one night, lying in bed feeling wired and irritable when I felt pressure lift from the bed on my partner’s side. I assumed he’d got up to go to the bathroom (I was facing the opposite way so I didn’t see him do this) a few minutes go by and I hear him come back into the room and feel him get back in bed, nothing strange about that.
Lying there still frustrated the same thing happens again, a lift of pressure, some rustling sounds like a person trying to navigate a dark room, an absence of sound for a few moments and then the sensation of weight on the bed again. Still not thinking much of it, because it wasn’t an obvious cause for concern, I continue trying to fall asleep. Then it happens again. And again. And again.
I wasn’t too into the idea of asking him if he was ok as we had a ridiculous argument that night and I was pretty pissed off with him, so I just ignored it. But then… Then it sounded like he had got up and was simply pacing around the room clumsily, I could hear things on the shelves being touched and slightly moved and hands gently brushing against walls, and then I felt the bed suddenly dip in a concentrated spot of the mattress as though he had stood on it. This carries on for I don’t know how long, rustling, pressure on the bed and so on until I snap. I sit bolt upright, turn around and say “WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?” to see my partner waking up from a very deep sleep and looking confused.
I told him what had happened and he said he’d been asleep next to me the whole time, which was pretty obvious to see him in his very sleepy state, plus he would have had mere seconds to jump into bed without me noticing in the time it took me to sit up and turn around. I somehow fell asleep that night feeling confused and as though eyes were on me.
And in a typical cheesy haunted house fashion, I get a call from my mum the next morning telling me my uncle had died the night before.
5. A demon, perhaps?
I was 10 and in the car with my mom. I looked out the window (passenger side) and the lady next to us looked back at me. Her face was distorted. I was mortified.
I turned to my mom to tell her and when we both looked, the lady was just smiling. I remember her so clearly and her little blue car
4. I bet it wasn’t the only time.
When I was living with my parents, our small dog jumped straight up onto the kitchen counter. It was super high, but he made it.
He only did it once and I witnessed it, but my family calls BS every time I say it really happened.
3. Lucky she didn’t crap herself.
I’m (31F) and this happened about 10 years ago. As I walked my dog, I suddenly felt like I was being watched. I looked around and quickly noticed a grey wolf slowly walking through the field I was beside, staring right at me with a mangled rabbit in its mouth.
We were both walking in the same general direction. It looked huge, around 5 feet or so. It stared in such a predatory way I was terrified that it was going to come for us. It was about 15 meters away with a pretty pathetic fence between us, and we both just stood there frozen for about 10 seconds staring at each other.
Eventually I picked up my (small) dog and backed away while watching it, I didn’t know what the hell to do. When it was nearly out of sight and still hadn’t moved, I turned and ran.
I told my dad who didn’t seem to believe me but said I should call animal welfare, and they didn’t take it seriously at all, I never heard back from them. We don’t have wolves here so I have no idea what the heck happened.
I Google it every few years and did read something about people managing to get wolves as pets and then releasing them when they got too big to keep or something, so I wonder if that’s what happened. But I always see a look of worried disbelief when I tell someone!
2. I believe it.
On the bike path a man riding a beach cruiser one handed, no shirt but wearing a huge sombrero, carrying a fawn cradled in his other arm.
1. Sleep deprivation is wild.
Myself from several feet away. I was very very tired and I was walking up the steps at my house.
I remember watching myself from an angle that wouldn’t have been possible. But I remember it clear as day.
I mean, I don’t have any reason to not believe them.
That said, I definitely have some questions…
