Modern Time Close Encounters and Alien Contacts from Turkey By Farah Yurdozu
My native Turkish land has always been very rich with UFO sightings. Our mythology and historical records show numerous close encounters with mysterious beings who come from stars or other dimensions.
The original name of my Turkish ancestors was “GokTurks” which means “Sky People.” Ancient Turks believed that their leader was visited by a woman who came from a star. And this mysterious woman who descended in a ball of light got pregnant from the Turkish tribe’s leader. She gave birth to 3 sons who were called Moon, Star and Sun. They became the founders of new Turkish generations.
Symbolic or historical, all these narratives gave an identity to my nation. Turkish people are very spiritual and open minded to the idea of Extraterrestrial Intelligent life. As you know, also the Turkish press is extremely open minded to UFO sightings. When there is a UFO sighting in any big city or a small town of the country you can see the coverage on the front pages of important daily newspapers. I guess the knowledge is in our genes, who knows?
In this article I want to introduce you 3 Turkish contactees. Don’t worry, they are not historical or mythological characters from the past. They are from the present time, and they had very normal, simple lives—until they encountered the Aliens.
Case # 2-Shape Shifting Men in Black Visited Turkey By Farah Yurdozu
Contactee: Burhan Yılmaz.
By Farah Yurdozu
This modern case is from 1979. The person who had the experience was an elementary school teacher, a young man. On the first night of the encounter Burhan Yılmaz stayed outside watching the sky until 2:00 am. Suddenly he noticed in the sky, a very bright flying object that came closer to the ground. The object was in the shape of a half-dome and slowly landed on the field without any sound. It was the size of a minivan. A kind of energy field was surrounding the UFO. The UFO stayed there for a while. Burhan Yılmaz observed it until it lifted off and flew away in the dark sky. But he could not remember how long he stayed there watching the UFO. After the object left, he immediately did some research on the landing spot but didn’t find any trace or any burning grass. Everything seemed normal.
The following night Burhan was reading at his home where he lived alone. At 9:30 pm, he heard knocking on the door. It was three young men around their 30’s whom he had never seen or met before. They were wearing black suits and black ties. As Burhan lived and worked in a very small town, the fact that his visitors were complete strangers to him was not normal. Because in these small towns everybody knows everybody. But even though Burhan Yılmaz never saw them before, he invited them inside as is the Turkish tradition and they sat in the living room. The visitors explained that they came from another town 8 km away. At this point Burhan Yılmaz went to the kitchen of his very small home to prepare tea for his guests. And he came back to the living room only after 2 minutes. Now he was very surprised because his visitors were gone.
Burhan searched his tiny home and they weren’t anywhere. It was impossible for them to go outside from the main and the only door, because to do that they had to walk by the kitchen where Burhan Yılmaz was, and he would have seen them. They could not have left through the windows either because there were iron bars on all of them. On the street there was only a little girl playing by herself. He asked her if she saw the 3 men. She said ‘Yes,’ and pointed to the corner of the street. But there were only three black dogs growling in the corner. Suddenly, a neighbour woman came running, screaming in panic. She said that she had just seen three men flying to the sky.
This case is interesting as it starts with a UFO sighting the night before the visit of the three men. Also, Burhan Yılmaz cannot estimate time surrounding the sighting and how long he stayed there watching the UFO. There might be a missing time factor there. Does missing time mean an abduction? We don’t know. He didn’t know either. But the three men in black were seen by three witnesses.
