September of this year will mark the 50th anniversary of one of the strangest and most mysterious creature-type reports to have ever crossed my path. It’s made even weirder by the fact that it was secretly investigated by the British Royal Air Force!

According to a now-declassified, six-page file titled “Unexplained Event’ at Avebury, Wilts.,” that had been prepared by a Royal Air Force officer, an extraordinary event of near-monstrous proportions, occurred within the old, famous, standing -stones of Avebury, Wiltshire, England on a September day way back in 1962.

It is a pity that people very rarely take any notice of stories like this, and even less frequently are willing to discuss them in any remotely serious way, instead preferring to spend endless amounts of time arguing the same old things, over and over and over endlessly. There's an extraordinary number of stories like this. Extraterrestrial probe? plasma? hallucination? Did she make it all up to seek attention? (Psychology had hardly been heard of in 1962, of course). It is a shame that no one ever talks about stories like this.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Now Kitty, you always want to hurt something- :-* I'd love it to be real, but it sounds kind of fishy.

As far as I can tell from what's here, an unnamed person reported an odd event to the RAF, which sent an unnamed person to investigate, as cited in an unattributed report.

Well, at least it wasn't reported in The Sun.

Sounds like a night terror. Maybe she fell asleep in her car and then woke frightened to death and went to the authorities.

If it was an ET, it is not like any I've heard of before.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

In my opinion the ball of light she saw was typical of reports of ball lightning , which then exploded near to her, (15 feet away) causing the bright flash of light.
The report then states
''For a moment the witness was blinded by its intensity and she instinctively fell to her knees. When her eyes cleared, however, she was faced with a horrific sight''
I believe the worm she then saw was a hallucination caused by the fact that her eyes were probably not back to 'normal' at this time and the fact that she must have been in a state of shock or panic.

This story in its self seems to be a bit of a dead end, however on the same website there is another version of this story with a few details (either missing from or added to the OP's article).


On the ground near the standing stone, however, was a three-foot long trail of a slime-like substance, not unlike that left by a snail. Lees’ colleague quickly improvised and, after racing back to the woman’s house, scooped some of the material onto a spoon and into a drinking glass.


There is also an idea that these stones are related in some way to Snake worship. This ties in quite nicely with a worm forming from a ball of light.


An interpretation of the name Abury or Au-bury can, according to some experts, be translated to mean Serpens Solis or Sun Snake.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.
