A witness from Tennessee has reported to the Mutual UFO Network a curious encounter with a shadow-like obsidian entity. What began as an ordinary morning would eventually become something quite different after she turned and came face to face with a mysterious being hovering behind her. What would you do if you were standing outside enjoying your first cup of coffee and then suddenly turned around to find yourself face to face with something completely unexplainable?
The witness’ report to the Mutual UFO Network was very detailed in the encounter. The witness was outside enjoying her morning cup of coffee on her deck, which stood twelve feet above the ground below when the event occurred. It was 6:40 am, as the witness recalled, and noted that it was unusually warm and calm that morning – nothing like the storms that would eventually begin barraging the Midwest in the days following.
When she turned around, she stopped dead in her tracks. A strange entity was standing nearby her, looking out into the field below, and leaning on the wooden rail surrounding the deck. The entity was completely black and featureless, as though a shadow of a human being had been burned into the space where it stood. The mysterious creature left the witness dumbfounded as she stood watching it. Suddenly it turned its head and looked at her.
Somehow, the witness was not terrified as it slowly started moving away, floating very slowly away as if not fully there. Even though its legs moved like a person walking backward, it was somehow not walking. It was simply floating backward. She watched, describing the feeling as something akin to guilt for interrupting this mysterious entity’s morning. It wasn’t until it appeared once again, its face partially obscured by the edge of their house as it peered back at her that she suddenly felt there was a sinister edge to this experience. As the being watched her and pulled its fingers along the side of the house slowly away, she felt as though it were communicating a message to her – a threatening one. The witness described the terrifying feeling it evoked in her report with the words,
“…Nothing was said but I got the feeling that it relayed the message, ‘I’m not going to hurt you today, but I could if I wanted to…”
The witness described the feeling as terrifying – and understandably so. These entities, often called “Shadow People” are said to be featureless, near ethereal, and timid, but carry with them a hint at something far larger – and sometimes even terrifying. Witnesses around the world have described having similar encounters with beings that do not possess any physical characteristics, but which somehow move incorporeal through the air and sometimes even solid objects. No one knows what they are, where they come from, or what they represent to witnesses describing them. The only thing that can be said for sure is that witnesses often describe the experience as terrifying afterward.
