What was in the driveway?

Recommended Posts

mystic_chill

This just happened about an hour ago approximately 3:42am Friday May 22. From my second floor bedroom window I happen to look out and observe something I can't explain nor describe in precise detail. Whatever it was I just saw didn't belong there and I observed it for about 2 minutes before it vanished. It caught my eye as the end of the driveway where the garbage is collected on Tuesdays was supposed to be clear. At first my thought process was someone parked their motorcycle there although that's not what I was seeing. I couldn't make out what this thing was but it was definitely solid and dark with no direct light hitting it. The object/entity was still and did not move so I figured it was definitely some kind of vehicle. The window was shut when I first observed it so after gazing at it for several moments I decided to force it open as this window has a broken track and requires something to hold it from shutting. Opening the window and peering out this thing whatever it was did not move. From my vantage point of about 60ft I was starting to make out 2 dark objects instead of what I initially thought was a bike. They were standing about the height of the garbage bins that would be placed in that area. If they were entities of any kind it seemed like they were facing the direction down the street. I had my phone so I hit the power button and the screen was too bright so I aim it towards this thing but the light didn't seem to reach it for me to see anymore detail. Next I aim the screen back on me and when I set up to get a pic the thing was gone. Now I'm beating myself up for having seen something so odd and having nothing not even a detailed description of what I saw. This thing was motionless from the time I spotted it to the time it vanished. There was no indication that whatever this was was going anywhere so I sorta took my time analyzing it trying to make sense of the whole ordeal. I even had the intention to go down and get a closer look at it. I'm just confused and wonder what was it in the driveway that didn't belong? How did it just vanish? It was definitely there. Additionally the smell of a skunk filled the air shortly after. I been a member here for some time and knew that this would be the place to document my sighting as this is something very strange. Can't take my mind off it.

P.S. I wanted to add that this thing was partially on the street and I was waiting for the occassional car to go by to see head lights hit it but no cars ever passed during the sighting.

Sounda like someone dumped something, see as it was at the bins, someone else came along and thought, "I'll have that".

Or it was put there to be picked up by someone.

You missed them picking it up.

where the garbage is collected on Tuesdays

Years ago when I lived in London, round my area the was a drugs factory, one of the pick up points for couriers was the bin area next to the garden centre, there would be a motorbike near by, thats when you knew a collection was being made, and along comes a person, got the goods and off they go.

I am not saying it was drugs, but it was very likely something which was out there as there had been an arrangement for it to be collected.

3.42am, it would still be dark, so not possible for you to make anything out from a second floor window. 

Entity? Where the heck have you got that from? :D

Block text, I must've over looked it and it was 5 am. Thanks for the catch.

I hate block text. It will even prevent me from reading a post sometimes. That's why I always try to break my posts into paragraphs. Sometimes no longer than a couple sentences each.

See?

Like this. 

Much easier to read, no?

Cheers!

Same. I have skipped several threads because of it. My brain starts jumbling the words up and I miss things.

Low light and shadows can make something normal look very strange. Once I saw the biggest spider ever, it was the size of a softball. Just as I was about to take a photo, it flew up to a branch. It turns out it was just a sparrow but my brain/eyes saw a giant spider.

I appreciate all the feedback and responses. I also apologize for my block text format, didn't consider the comfort of the reader.

It was quite challenging going about my day as normal after what I had experienced in the earlier hours. To respond to some of the input from you guys I am certain that this was no trick of the eye and lighting or lack thereof. There was definitely something on the driveway of our private space in a quiet section of CT. 

The fact that the object was large enuff to cause alarm and suddenly dematerialize right before me is not something that can easily be dismissed and brushed off. This was an unusual occurrence in every aspect. 

What I saw was unexpected so it was challenging to take the appropriate measures of responding to such event. I never panicked at the fact that we had possible intruders in the dead of night it only struck me as really odd. Again there was no sound or motion from this thing so there was definitely a calm element to it. Then it just disappeared. It didn't run off, get picked up by a passing vehicle (no traffic at the time), it was merely there then gone.

sometimes? So you do read them then, occasionally...

Someone could write something a mile wide for all I care= it's what they say that matters!

So your point is what,? because i honestly can't see the problem- Just out of interest

My point is summed up in the first sentence of my OP.

Huge blocks of text are tedious. I prefer paragraphs. With spaces between them. Just my opinion.

Maybe you should follow the thread from the beginning. My OP was an agreement and reply to Xeno.

Now I'm curious why you seem so annoyed by it.

what has your comment to XF got to do with what I'm talking about? 

You moaned about the structure of the OP.. Why? I'm just interested because I love to look at how others perceive stuff..

My reasoning is because IMO people moan for a reason= what was your reason? Are you trying to subconsciously tell me/us something? Purely out of interest & all due respect

There must "always" be a logical explanation for 99.9 percent of the guys here. So I'm not surprised at all by these comments anymore. Though mostly they are right(!). Just like it was in my "Black Pyramid on the sun" topic. As people discussed about it in detail, gave more info about the things I had seen for the first time and gave other examples of possible hoaxes, I was able to see a pattern that led me to think it was a hoax. It's just hard for a person to accept that what he experienced was only a trick of their imagination.

I'm NOT trying to say it was a supernatural incident (only because I wasn't there to witness) but why not? mystic says that he was there the whole time and the thing just dematerialized. I don't know anything logical to do that. If someone could give other examples of such disappearances I might well be convinced again that it's not a supernatural incident. But for me it is in this case, until someone proves it isn't.

Besides we all must accept that science is only scratching the surface of the whole truth about this existence. Science also evolves, never stays the same. The facts of the past are never the facts of the tomorrow. Recently the scientists claimed to have found proof for the existence of parallel universes. Before that it was just hypothesis, a sci-fi fantasy.

Yet I prefer scientific truth to lore of course, because it feels safer. But sometimes all we have is the lore. And most of the times lore indicates to a fact....

That's what I think and believe. There isn't always a logical explanation to everything we experience. Not yet. But eventually scientists will illuminate the darkness.

Unlikely. mystic says the things dematerialized right infront of his eyes.

And animals, "especially dogs or cats" can not stand still like a solid object more than a few seconds. I know because I have both :) During the night cats are more active, they make a crazy home party.:clap::su:sk

Shadows could have been from a light in a surrounding home and was turned off.I've seen cats still for quite a time having a stand off.

Some kind of "temporary light effect" could seem like a reasonable explanation to me as lights in night time apparently flicker due to intensity of the electricity.

However mystic is talking about a distinct dark shadow from a distant vantage point

And for me the most interesting part is mystic describes the shadow/s more like a machine or a solid non-living object(?)... why a machine or vehicle? Because of its size or because it's a driveway. Btw. I can't think of dogs and cats the size of garbage

Maybe it was something you could not see well enough to recognize ?       ?
