Friday, 16 February 2018, Big Sur, CA – A 10-year old boy and his family went camping in Big Sur last week. They were planning on enjoying a two-night camping trip combined with a hike to the ocean. It was a perfectly normal situation – until you realise that during the time frame of this camping trip, there were numerous reports of unexplained flashing lights over the skies of Big Sur. Something is not right. The area is nervous. What could possibly be happening? Let’s get to the bottom of this before it is too late.
According to reports from local residents, around 2:30 AM, bright strobe lights were seen hovering over the thick forests of Big Sur. The lights were reportedly so bright that residents were unable to sleep. Residents also reported that no helicopter sounds were heard, there was no evidence of planes over the sky at the time (according to air traffic reports), and it was also a moonless night at the time of the incident. The bright lights incident is still under investigation by the California Department of Justice.
The day before, a 10-year old named Dylan, and the rest of his family, arrived at their campsite in Big Sur at around 4:30 PM. No unusual activity was reported around this time, but by 6:30 PM the first incidence of bright strobe lights in the sky occured. The lights went largely unnoticed by Dylan’s family, park staff, and other campers in the area.
By 1:15 AM Saturday, the lights came back, waking nobody up. But by 2:45 AM, the lights were so bright and powerful that it woke up the entire family. Disturbed, Susan (Dylan’s mother) seeked out assistance from park officials the following morning.
At 7:30 AM, Susan reported the incident to park staff, who passed the report along to law enforcement officials in the Big Sur area. Law enforcement were swamped with other similar complaints reporting the same incident with the strobe lights. They were unable to come to a conclusion.
But Saturday night is where things get really crazy. After making smores over the campfire, Dylan and his family go to bed at around 10:30 PM. Susan is still nervous about the strobe lights, but her husband convinces her to go to bed anyway. She does, and everything is all well and good for a short period of time.
At around 2:00 AM Sunday, Dylan’s little sister discovers more strobe lights in the sky, and also discovers that Dylan is missing. She panics, and immediately tells her mother. Susan, even more anxious by this time, calls the police. The police search the entire park, but they are unable to find any trace of Dylan.
Over four hours later, at around 6:30 AM, a fellow Big Sur camper discovers Dylan alive and well in his sleeping bag whilst on his morning walk. Law enforcement officials leave the park and investigate the case.
When the family returned home, Dylan told his family of his alien encounters. He recalls being handcuffed to an operating table and being jabbed with a metal stick by unnaturally tall and slim humanoid creatures. He was not injured in the incident.
Susan normally wouldn’t believe such a story, but she was in such a frenzied panic during the entire trip that she passed the story down to the law enforcement officials back in Big Sur. They passed down the case to the California Department of Justice, who continues to investigate the strobe lights over the Big Sur sky, as well as the associated alien encounter.
