Mysteries revisited: the Kelly Cahill alien abduction case

Nearly 30 years on, one of Australia's most compelling alien abduction cases is no closer to being solved.
The strangeness began on the evening of August 7, 1993, when Kelly Cahill and her then-husband Andrew had been driving to a friend's house along the Belgrave-Hallam Road in Narre Warren, Melbourne.

As they drove along, she noticed something unusual in a paddock at the side of the road - six orange lights in a distinct circular formation 'like nothing she had ever seen before'.

The rest of the trip was uneventful and the couple arrived at their destination without incident, but on the way home a few hours later, things took a rather sinister turn.

As they drove back along the same stretch of road, they encountered the same orange lights, but this time they appeared to be hovering above the road in front of them.

As they got closer, they could see that the object was in fact some sort of craft.

"I could then see that the orange lights were really windows," Cahill wrote. "I could make out figures standing behind the portals."
As they approached, the object flew off 'at incredible speed' before showing up yet again in a paddock a little further down the road. It was then that they experienced a period of inexplicable memory loss and found themselves several hundred meters further down the road than they should have been.

Later, through hypnosis, Cahill recalled that they had actually stopped to check out the lights, only to encounter a number of tall, thin entities which fired some sort of energy weapon at them.

What made the incident particularly compelling was the fact that the occupants of another car that Cahill had seen nearby had later come forward to independently report a very similar experience.

There was even a local lawyer who had also driven by at the time with a corroborating story.

So could the couple have really encountered extraterrestrial visitors that night ?

The search for answers continues.

With the Star Wars & Predator movies put into the public mind. I wonder why it's still always Greys. Where's the Wookies & Jabba the Hut types?

I know you weren't asking a serious question but I think it's because those movies are billed as fantasy but movies like Communion and Close Encounters are billed as based on fact. Also the Greys are similar to the "little green men" aliens that were what everyone knew were aliens before them.

The concept of Greys originated in late 19th early 20th Century versions of evolved humans of the future. Aleister Crowley even recorded hallucinations of them.  But the humanoid form is such a evolutionary "one off" and doesn't fit a pattern of convergent evolution, I have serious doubts that there is anything shaped like us in are section of the universe.

How did he record a hallucination? Do you mean he wrote about what he thought he saw?

He drew it and wrote it down.

I found it on Wikipedia. Around 1917... I couldn't find any more adventures he had with Lem. I have to admit that his drawing of Lem is pretty damn cool:

Is that a robe he’s wearing? I like it, kinda suave.

Strieber is an author by profession. Saying, he earns his money with writing books. And the more popular your books are, the more you will earn. I have read many of his books, and, to be honest and not trying to go off topic, I think his best book was "The Wolfen". He sort of proposed the idea, that stories about 'werewolves' were not based on humans changing into wolves during a full moon, but based on a kind of evolved wolves: wolves with larger brains and paws that were able to grab things. Wolves smart enough to kill only those humans who wouldn't be missed like hobos.

Great book! Catmagic was also good. It is also the reason I think he was "dabbling" and haunted himself with some "snails" (greys) and other subconscious thoughtforms and exaggerated the experience in Communion.
