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.
