My Interest in Ariel School

I was interested in the Ariel School sighting from the beginning. perhaps because of the sighting that my husband and i had experienced at about the same time. Did the two tie in? Were they connected? But why were we brought into the loop?

I would not find out until some years later - yes there was a reason.

I was approached to see if I could find out any further information on the landing. I joined the Ruwa Garden club and spoke to the women there - yes they did have some information but not much. Some had had children at the school but the children had not seen anything - they had been in another part of the grounds. I heard stories about parents that did not believe what had been seen. Later these parents began to believe when they saw the drawings made by their children and talked to other parents.

Ruwa is a very conservative town. People go to church on a Sunday and have been known to have arranged for the removal of a vicar when they thought him too 'modern'. These people do not discuss UFOs or ghosts or other occurrences. These things do not play a part in their lives. However I did find out some glimmerings of interest and it was suggested that I visit the school and speak to the headmistress who had been a teacher at the school at the time of the sighting. At least i was getting somewhere.

Why do I believe in UFOs?

I haven't always lived in Zimbabwe - and my real interest in UFOs started in Ghana. When I moved to Zimbabwe I found my interest growing. I heard of Cynthia Hind and later met her and talked in detail to her about her researches and experiences.

I do feel very stongly that we would have to be very egotistic to believe that earth was the only place inhabited by human life.

There must be someone out there who has made a better way of living within their environment that we have done here on earth. Beings that are genuinely interested in preserving their worlds must exist.

Why is it that Zimbabwe, and indeed Southern Africa, has been singled out by people from other worlds? The number of visitations have been exceptional and people here are aware of them. You will start off a conversation on the subject and find people willing to join in and exchange views - give personal experiences and discuss on valid level.

Yes I believe in UFOs - I have experienced their presence and fully believe we are being 'investigated' by people from another world or worlds.

Another sighting in September 1994

Around the same time that the UFO sighting and landing occurred in Ruwa at Ariel School a similar sighting occurred at a private school in Hilton South Africa. Hilton is a town north of Pietermaritzburg in the south of the country.

Hilton College is a private full boarding senior school for boys located near the small town of Hilton in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands of South Africa. It is one of the most prestigious schools in South Africa.

I have tried to find out if there is anyone who remembers this event but although making contact with the present school secretary, I have been unable to substanciate the sighting. I have today e-mailed one of the old boys associations to find out if anyone can remember the incident.

I would be pleased to hear from anyone who might be reading this who has any further information.

Ariel School Sighting

Picture source - Hesemann

The sighting at Ariel School near Ruwa on 16 September 1994 is one of the best documented and well known sightings of an unidentified flying object.

Something landed in a schoolyard in Ruwa, Zimbabwe. This was witnessed by 62 schoolchildren, who had little or no exposure to TV or popular press accounts of UFOs. Cynthia Hind interviewed them the day after the encounter and had them draw pictures of what they had seen. The event lasted about fifteen minutes, the children said, before the spaceships faded from view. Some of the chilren expereinced fear at the sighting but the children reported also being curious and fascinated by the strange beings they saw, whose eyes in particular commanded an intense attention.

The remarkable thing about this sighting is that although the children had not been exposed to knowledge about UFOs they all drew basically the same images without being influenced by the other students or adults.

The story can be read about in fuller details by following the links given on this page.
